I love it at first but it's not a really "special" scent. It smell great but nothing really complex. I also think that it doesnt really stay on me. I would be happy to get it as a gift, but I would not purchase it for myself.
I would like to start of with saying that the composition of this perfume seems to be quite simple, but it smells totally different on me from what seems to be in it. I for example get absolutely no green notes from this on my skin - they're present only half a minute after, but I don't actually smell perfumes in that period. My skin does have a tendency of turning perfumes less green and sweeter in general.
I think this smells beautifully! When I first spritz it, it's pretty sharp and spicy, with some oriental notes. Then it turns into a sweet honey smell mixed with a balmy smell. At last, I'm left with (not overly) sweet vanilla, just a little bit of orientals, balmy lipstick smell and just a tiny tiny bit of lily - it's almost not present on me. I don't think it smells like old people, but rather grown up, comforting, intimate and classy. I'm only 22, but I think it's age appropriate even for me. This can be compared to Organza by Givenchy in terms of what age group can wear it. The smell stays close to the skin and settles quickly, so I don't have to wait for long before exposing myself to people . I don't get a head ache from this, and I don't think it should bother other people either. This smell reminds me of my childhood - it smells a lot like my grandmas lipstick (I'veen hunting down a perfume that smells like it for YEARS!). She always kissed me on my cheeks when she had her lipstick on :) This was also that one of my friend house smelt like - her parents were Chinese and wad the house decorated with beautiful Chinese items! Lasting power isn't the best, but it's OK with me.
If you want a "special" scent - this is not it. It's not a complex scent, it's not going to make you stand out. This is actually what I like about this perfume - I can wear this soft smell every day without annoying people - they would only be able to smell this when they're very close to me, which I also think the name describes perfectly!
I received a few samples of this. My first reaction was WOW! Love it!!! But after spritzing it on it turns to an old lady fragrance unfortunately.The opening is very nice, but during the day it just turns completely around to a very floral granny scent. Too bad!
The florals in this concoction scream LILY, which resulted in a massive headache. If you are prone to headaches, spray on the lower body or avoid all together.
My wonderful husband got this scent for my birthday in the EDP formulation, which is a lovely floral with a predominating Lily top-note. Good lasting power, and the flip top bottle is gorgeous. I saw a pure parfum version in Nordstrom today, and I sampled it and will buy that down the road.
Like a previous review stated, this is probably suited for older women. I would categorize this as a strong floral scent that falls in the same category as Elizabeth Arden Red Door. I’m not a fan of lily or rose scents. I got this as a sample from a Nordstrom order and it is definitely not my cup of tea. I will not purchase.
As much as I want to dislike this (the intial spray just made me think of a mature lady which isn't me) there is something that I just LIKE about this scent.
It has a mixture of citrus, green, white florals and exudes an array of moods.
The scent is very distinctive, it's very classy in a mature way, and as much as I say this isn't really me, I just can't help smelling my wrist and saying "this isn't really me ... but I really like it."
I'm torn ... maybe I'll test it a few more times before I decide whether to purchase it or not.
Cartier perfumes can be very easy for me to wear, or they can be disastrous. This EDP, while not one of the best, is very wearable for me, a go to everyday kind of scent, apply in the morning, and reapply in the afternoon or apply something else to the evening. This makes the scent very versatile. It has not irritated anyone around me, in fact, as another reviewer so brilliantly put it, it does not demand your attention all day as some other scents do (brava reviewer!!! excellently put!). The bottle is impeccable and modern, color of the liquor gorgeous. Feminine, powdery, light, it is easy to wear and easy to reach for.
Lovely, but unexceptional. Pretty, but conventional. I tried the EdT, and it dried down to a soft/greenish/lemony scent. My skin eat scent very quickly, but this lasted quite a long time on me.
I think this would be a nice summer scent; also very appropriate for the office. I wouldn't buy a FB, since I think it's overpriced, but I might buy a small decant.
I was really excited to buy this. Beautiful box and I loved the bottle. Not loving the scent though. It is a bit powdery for me and I surely do not smell much of a kick at all. It is a bit green and the drydown is very soft and powdery. Beautiful bottle but not strong enough for me:( sorry Cartier. I have the huge 100ml bottle so I will use it as a spare if I run out of my favorite.
