My all time favorite perfume is L'air Du Temps, because it's rather pricey, I only wear it on special occasions. My every day perfume is Wind Song, which I love and it was my Grandmother's favorite as well. I started wearing it in High School. I just love florals that are soft and smell clean. Most floral fragarances will either make me sneeze, or are mixed with something fruity which I don't care for.
So if you like L'air Du Temps or Wind Song, I'm sure you will like this. It's a pretty close dupe for L'air Du Temps.
I was introduced to this scent when I placed an order for Riche Creme eye cream and I was sent a bunch of full size freebies, that included the shower gel of this scent and I loved it. I saw they had a perfume, but it was out of stock. I continue to get emails from Yves Roche and when I was browsing their site I saw the perfume was available, and best of all it was only $15.00, so I purchased two bottles. I see that it is again out of stock, so I'm glad I got two.
My only gripe is this scent does not last very long. I purchased the lotion as well, so even when I layer it on top of the lotion it lasts maybe an hour. The lotion, BTW is rather sticky and feels like it is just sitting on top of the skin, it smells good, though. The shower gels is nice also, same thing though, the scent does not last past your shower. So I am taking a lippie off because of that, otherwise it's really nice.
If you were wearing something like TM Angel or CD Addict all winter long, this can actually be a relief perfume before moving on to something more special for the summer days. It is veeeeeeeeeeeery pleasant and innocent and kind: if perfumes were flowers, this one would be a daisy. It sort of gives your olfactory senses a break and takes no effort to wear, especially that it doesn't last that long. I would not buy this again - I rarely repurchase perfumes and this is by far not in the contestants' row for the comeback on my dresser. But if you just don't know what to wear next and haven't found a spring/summer scent, are in desperate need thereof to have something on while you are searching for your warm season HG - go for it: it's a steal anyway.
This is a pleasant green floral, but the scent to me is rather heavy and thick.
This is one of my favorite perfume of YR, it's really natural, if you like herbal scents, you will love this, it's really fresh, it doesn't causes you headaches or anything, it has a really nice bouquet of white flowers mix with green plants and it longs the most of the day
I enjoyed this fresh, earthy perfume on me, and my sister loved it as well. However, my male friends thought it smelled 'old and dirty', and my boyfriend compared it to dish soap. So maybe it's more of a casual scent rather than something for a night on the town.
Love the green leaf-shaped bottle and the green color of the juice itself, but I'm "meh" about this one. I have a bottle of the EDT that my mom gave me, and unfortunately sprayed on too much of this in the belief that it was a clean, green scent that couldn't be overdone. There is a strong green/galbanum note to this, yes, but also a sucker-punch of underlying jasmine and musk that moves this away from a strictly fougere (green) scent. The EDT is surprisingly potent and has all-day and all-night cling, so be careful (even though other Rocher frags aren't as concentrated). If I want "fresh," I have other scents I prefer. This one is rather cheap and synthetic to me.
A fresh green floral that dries down to lily of the valley on me. It is a light fragrance that is not overpowering. I really like the matching shower gel to this.
This is a lovely, green, crisp, floral, fresh fragrance. It's very pleasant in the morning after a shower, and I would imagine the shower gel is nice too. It's not terribly long lasting, so by lunch time I can switch to a different type of fragrance if I want to. I definitely have room in my wardrobe (and heart) for this one. I'll probably order a bottle. Update: Somebody sent me her bottle as she felt it was too girlish a scent for her. I'm not a *young* girl, more of an *old* young girl :-D but I'm really enjoying this fragrance, it's lovely. Notes from YR website: Olfactive Family: Green Floral. Head Notes: Mandarin, Crushed Mint Leaves. Mid Notes: Headspace Daphne, Lily-of-the-Valley. Base Note: Cedar.
There was some nice freshness in the topnotes, but this quickly goes to lilly of the valley and stays there. I can't stand it. It's too sweet. Too sweet in the floral sense, not the gourmand.
This is probably one of their best scents. It's light, fresh, crisp and pretty. Kinda outdoorsy, but soft-like. Not at all overpowering and it stays on awhile, too. My husband wears the men's cologne and everyone likes it. The men's is also light, not too loud like alot of men's colognes. Okay, I like this alot, but the more I wear it, it seems to fade quickly! So, the lasting power isn't all too great, but it is a nice scent! I also have the lotion and wear that, along with the perfume, and it STILL does NOT stay on that long! I nearly bathe in the stuff! Lasts maybe 30 minutes! And the lotion is thin and sticky that it leaves me dry!
