This is for the eau-de-Toilette - I used this years ago, and when I saw it at a really good price in the airport duty free (wandering around with time to spare due to a delayed flight - an inducement to spending more money!), I decided to re-purchase. Couldn't remember why I stopped using it before. Now I've been reminded! I like the fragrance initially, but as with a recent previous reviewer, it wears off after a short while on me. So it seems like a waste now, even though the price was good.
This review is for the eau de parfum version. So paris is very special to me, its what my mother wore while i was growing up in the 90's and no i don't agree this is not a grandma's fragrance at all, my mother is 43 and she still wears it! This is a very sharp perfume, very strong and flowery and i agree with some people it does have that 80's hairspray, makeup type smell, but i love it! i work for nightclubs in newcastle and EVERYONE compliments me when i wear this, it works well for clubbing as it last's all night and literally people can smell me before i walk in the room, definitely huge sillage which i love! if i'm 19 and can pull this off, anyone can! but honestly it really doesn't smell like a grandma type perfume, usually that's people's ignorant way of saying something doesn't smell fruity or like every other celebrity perfume out there, this is a classic fragrance, really great for nightlife/party/special occasions type perfume. I hate when i run out of this stuff, always have a spare on hand, i'm addicted and its costly lol!
Was really surprised at how dissapointing this was. Maybe my skin chemistry but I found it very cloudy. I couldn't even figure out if it was sweet, powdery or floral? It seemed a wash of everything and very dull at that.
I love rose, and i love an edt with some strength and staying power! Although my fiance hates it, I like it quite a lot :)
Definitely a grandma's perfume, this fragrance brings you back to the 80's. All I could smell is dirty powdery smell.
This smells absolutely lovely and super feminine, like vintage roses. I love it.
However, just like it's counterpart "Parisienne", this wears off in about 5 minutes on me... Too bad.
I haven't worn this for a long time but it used to be one of my favorite florals. It's a classic floral. Feminine and elegant. Best for cooler weather or evenings though because it's not really light enough for Summer days IMO. Added bonus: I was stopped in the street a couple of times by men who told me I smelled great! It's a bit of a 1980s fragrance, not as complex as more modern scents.
This one was such a sensation in the '80s-- largely due to the showy faceted bottle with its pink-and-black cap, so tailored to the aesthetic of the time. The fragrance itself? I could take it or leave it. I don't think it smells as expensive as it is. It is a rose-violet combo, nothing more, nothing less. It strongly evokes lipstick, face powder, and cleansing cream, back when those products were heavily fragranced. I have a 0.5-ounce bottle that I like to sniff from time to time, as it reminds me of high school days, but I am never compelled to wear this, it's just not "me."
A lovely rose scent, older but timeless - it has a very wintery/cool vibe about it. Smells lovely on the right person. I havent owned this for years might have to track another bottle down.
I stopped someone on the train years ago when I spelled this perfume on her. I think it's a very classic, sophisticated, and unique scent. I love it!
