I used to love this scent when I was 18 - maybe it was the marketing. 6 years on, I find it slightly too synthetic in smell, too soapy, and just not sophisticated enough and without enough character.
It doesn't do anything wrong, but it doesn't do anything right. Won't be repurchasing :p
Romance is a pretty floral perfume...smells like roses and violets...soapy and dainty floral...Romance is so romantic...nice for all occasions and lovely for spring and summer...
Contrary to prior reviews, or as the name Romance suggests, Iwould not describe this as an overall girlie or uber feminine scent. For me, it's sort of an outdoorsy,....sporty, chic scent. After the first hour I absolutely detect a subtle woodsy and musky notes and there seems to be some recognizable Ralph Lauren ingredient reminding me of his Polo scent my first bf gave me decades ago. I really like this My husband loves this. Winner for me!
By the way, it smells a lot like "Pleasures" by Estee Lauder, but is less sharp than Pleasures, which is a good thing:)
i got this for last christmas and first i thought its an ok smell. over time however i really have started to love it! nice, not a too overwhelming scent and smells fresh and clean.
Fresh, clean, sophisticated. Definitely doesn't smell natural—it smells like perfume, though I wouldn't say this is a bad thing. It's great for winter.
OH MY GOD! I have been on the hunt for my HG scent and I have finally found it. I think this perfume must have a mood enhancer in it orsomething because whenever I put it on I am instantly in a good mood and just feel very confident about myself. This is everything that you look for in the perfect scent. It is sweet, sexy, but elegant, and most importantly long lasting. For me any perfume can smell great, but if it doesn't last or hold then it is a bust. You MUST try this if you haven't, you won't be dissapointed.

I bought this some years ago looking for a "romantic" or "girly" floral because all of my fragrances tend to be mildly spicy and unisex in nature. In the store it smelled really nice.but once I got it home I realized that I have a hard time with roses. This turn into a sour babypee-like monstrosity on me. I gave it to my niece and when I saw her again I asked what she was wearing it was RL Romance!!! She smelled exactly what drew me to buy it in the first place. Really pretty, romantic and feminine. I gave her my DG Rose The One also . . . i'm still looking for a floral that works for me
Personally,I find this scent quite overpowering and headache inducing. A strong floral.
However, having bought this a couple of years ago...to smell it brings back some memories of my younger teenage years. I will definitely keep the bottle and its remaining contents, as I am a very sentimental individual. :)
