A classic Coty d/s frag that I happen not to like - but my aunt did especially back in the '80's. Too "warm" and sweet for me.
This is one of my all time favorite scents ever! I first smelled this during the summer of my 8th grade year...some time ago... My aunt got it while I was staying over for the summer. I fell in love with it!!! I always get compliments when I wear this. I guess that it just blends well with my natural oils. My husband loves when I wear this!!! I will continue to buy this...
Cozy. This is a really nice fragrance although it's old school and has been around for quite some time. It is really warm and sweet, not strong. The only thing about it is I cannot wear it all the time, after a while I have to shelve it because the smell can get really boring. But overall, it's nice, sort of reminds me of peaches and cream in a way.
I bought this for the second time in the early '90s ...my original bottle disappeared...hmm...I think my mom took it. I got a GREAT deal...2oz. spray cologne with a 1oz. spray perfume...for something like , $11.00!! I still have them both , today. I love gardenias and this makes me think of the beach and summertime. Both types last sooo long on your skin....and I have gotten so many compliments on it , every time I wear it- men and women-...it's fresh and clean.
Got this on clearance, so had to try. I like florals and jasmine, but this is just too sweet and heavy on me. Don't detect any freshness at all in this--it's sugar and florals. Up for swap.
I never paid any attention to this fragrance when it first came out although I do remember the print ads in women's magazines. I bought a small bottle of this last year and thought it was a nice. I had a much more expensive gardenia perfume that I was wearing at the time, so I kept this around as a cheap back-up fragrance. So, it sat around all year, but now suddenly I am wearing it everyday. I think it just smells better in fall/winter. I had no attraction to this fragrance in the warmer months.
This is what it would smell like if Michael Kors EDP went to Panama City Beach on spring break and accidentally made a sex tape with Coppertone. So wrong, it's right. EDIT: An old lady at work said, "Mmmmm, you smell grrrrreat! Like Giorgio!" Realizing she was correct, I ran home, took a shower, and tossed the danged $4 mess.
I absolutely LOVE Sand & Sable...though almost every other woman I know doesn't! About 25 years ago a co-worker was spritzing it on in the ladies room and I fell in love..(with the Sand & Sable-not the co-worker! HAHAHA!)
Anywho...It is very sweet and feminine-so if that is not your thing then stay away from this! But it IS my thing and I am still in love with it 25 years later.
I love love love gardenia and tuberose and kept stumbling across mentions of this one so I decided to search it out and give it a try. I don't remember it from back in the day nor is the scent familiar like that so it's really brand new for me!! It was a nice surprise!! Not quite medium bodied with soft notes of jasmine, gardenia, very light tuberose, low notes of peach, suntan lotion and musk that peak sporadically. This is a fun casual happy scent that reminds me of spring and summer, depending on the notes present at the time. I don't see it being offensive because it is the farthest thing from heavy nor is it very floral. It's really like a formal or fancy body splash with quite decent staying power. Don't know if I'd repurchase but a fun worthwhile blind experiment! Packaging is utilitarian and boring and very 80s but certainly not awful! EDIT: I actually returned this!! Not at all enjoyable to my nose and skin.
This is the GROSSEST scent I have ever smelled. Completely disgusting! Super cheap tuberose scent mixed with rancid suntan lotion. I let the good reviews get the best of me. If i could give it a 0 instead of a 1 I would.
