This is a very pretty floral. I am not big on floral, but this scent is so beautiful!

This is called "The Fragrance from Bill Blass" but is more often referred to simply as Bill Blass, as it is meant to be a modern update of the original 1978 Bill Blass and is quite similar. I'll put the fragrance notes of both at the end of the review for you to compare how its changed.

First spray of the modern Bill Blass is mostly honeyed floral notes of Lily of the Valley, with hints of powdery Hyacinth, a little pungent Tuberose, Sweet Citrus Mandarin, and something fresh that seems like spearmint. After 20 minutes the Lily of the Valley softens and settles into a White Floral, with more Tuberose and a hint of Aldehydes (like Chanel No.5) coming out. After an hour the Sandalwood and Musks add glimmering warmth, but they are kept very subtle, allowing the perfume to retain its White Floral character throughout. I would describe it as a well balanced, fresh, happy, blooming rich floral fragrance with a warm approachable personality. So vintage its modern again. The EDP lasting power on my skin is medium, around 3 - 4 hours. If I spray it on clothing it seems to last far longer, a couple of days so I often use it this way. Love the stubby bottle, looks cute and never tips over. That cheap flimsy-feeling plastic square lid with the black neck I don't get, otherwise I really like this perfume.

Other fragrances this reminds me of are: Estee Lauder "Beautiful", a Tuberose-heavy floriental, Givenchy "Amarige D'amour" a beautiful "White Wedding" White Floral, Avon "In Bloom" by Reese Witherspoon, Avon "Flower" by Cynthia Rowley, because the freesia and lily combination smells to me similar to the Lily of the Valley and Hyacinth in Bill Blass.
