My review is for the EDP
Oh, oh oh oh how I love this perfume!!
Even the price tag (which mind you is actually a lot to shell out for a perfume) can not stop me from purchasing this fragrance over and over. Its a sophisticated floral-- it's not overwhelming at all, unless you spray too much obviously
I always get so many compliments while wearing this perfume, it makes me feel so sexy and fun, classy yet playful, mature also yet youthful! all in one!
Lasting power for the eau de toilette version sucks, but the eau de parfum is much better so I definitely recommend the latter, if you're okay with dishing out just a bit more $$ (tooooootally worth it in my opinion)
I love it so much it's become my signature scent. Day and night, this is the only scent you'll ever smell me wearing! haha
Notes according to Sephora's website:
Citrus Accord, Peony, Rose, Osmanthus Flower, Pink Pepper, Sandalwood
Yuck. Got this as a free sample. It is so overwhelming and sweet. I could not wash this off fast enough.
this one is pretty expensive, but i love it. buy for buying this thing i'll think it twice. not on my budget.
First off, I used the EDP not the EDT spray. The EDP lasted longer, and I was very impressed with it. The smell of Flora is not really that floral. It is sweet, floral, with maybe a hint of caramel or vanilla. It is very beautiful. It is something sweet and pleasant that an adult woman can wear. Some scents are too sweet, like candy sweet, or they are way too floral and powdery, like an old woman's perfume. This is perfect for a woman who wants to experience a sweet floral that smells more mature than Juicy Couture's line of fragrances. I thought the packaging was pretty, yet elegant. It is definatley made for more mature 20 somethings and women in their 30's. It was a sample spray, so I did not purchase it. I know that it is expensive, but the lasting power of the EDP was great, so I guess it would be worth the price.
Expensive, synthetic, but somewhat loveable.
It just smells synthetic flowers, and something cheap... I've gotten trauma since my classmate would always spray half a bottle on her for school. One or two sprays = Somewhat beautiful and nice, but half a bottle? No thank you.
I would buy it myself, even if it only was for the bottle, someday I will hehe :)
One of my favourites, the perfume is absolutely gorgeous and certainly does it's name justice. It's beautifully fresh with it's floral notes, not overpowering and is perfect for the spring/summer months. My boyfriend adores is and I love it for going out during the day and for work.
In addition, the bottle is pretty cute.
I'm almost out of my first bottle, but shall definitely repurchase.
I was shaking my head in disbelief when I got a sample of this and tried it without a hope in the world to like it - I just don't go for pure florals, they don't shine on me , they are too discreet and I usually stand out of the crowd here in Germany (a tatar-mongolian blood is running deep there somewhere), plus my skin practically absorbs most floral perfumes. The sample was eau de toilette, and i sort of gave up on it before even trying. I thought - alright, i'll have my 5-minute fun smelling the wrist and then i'll say good-bye to yet another vanishing-all-to-quickly floral. Well, well.. 4 hours later I am trying to figure out where this amazing smell is coming from, then i brush my nose past my wrist accidentally, and it strikes me: FLORA! First of all, I don't believe that eau de toilette in a sample is the same as eau de toilette in regular sizes. Samples are marketing devices, so i bet my bottom dollar that the strength here is amplified. Ignoring this, I must say: this is one of the most well-blended florientals out there. It reminds me a little of ROSE ABSOLUE by Yves Rocher because it has this creamy leather base that gives the scent depth and staying power. Also, I find it quite amazing, that a scent, targeted at a spring/summer season works so well in winter! - this is so seldom found in fresh florals, if at all actually. The only thing I don't like is the name: flora hardly suggests character or gives your imagination a kick. Currently on a hunt for an eau de perfume, hoping it will also be issued in pure perfume at some point. A keeper.

This review is for the body lotion. I LOOOOVE it so much. The fragrance is very floral, clean and sensual. Although the perfume is nice, it was a bit too much for me so I settled for the lotion. I found a 6.7 oz bottle at Marshall's for $30. Not bad considering it normally retails for $50 at stores like Macy's and Sephora. I also found it on Overstock and Amazon for $34 - $36. Either way, it's soooo worth every penny. The fragrance is intoxicating and very long lasting.
Smells nice. It's floral...not a disgusting in-your-face floral but a beautifully done non-descript one. I'm sure if you have a trained nose that you can identify some of the notes but to me everything is just so well-blended that nothing about it stands out to make it unique. It seems to me, a fragrance you would wear for your wedding. It's beautiful and classic and a non-offensive floral...it's just sadly lacking in anything that makes me actually want to purchase it....and I'm a bit of a fragrance junkie and have many, many bottles cheap and mid-range-high end (YSL, Lancome, Chanel, Givenchy),
I was given this parfum as a gift, does what it says FLORA- ie a powdery floral scent for me like a fresh powdery garden-not for everyone- I like fruity- but got many compliments upon wearing this- would repurchase.. slightly soapy ...
