Very sweet, girly perfume. If perfume were colors, then Forever and Ever would be pink- making the bottle perfectly appropriate. This somehow reminds me of a lighter version of Lancome's Miracle, so take from that what you will. I definitely have to be in a mood to wear this, but it will remain in rotation on my shelf.
*edit* A year later, and this has actually gotten better in my eyes. I just ordered a second bottle. Perfect sweet girliness.
Guess what? The 100mls are here! Charge, girls!
I hope no one else would ever buy this perfume. I hope that I will die with this secret in my heart. The secret of how beautiful this scent makes me feel. How young and carefree that I can be, but am not. I want to be the only one wearing it ever. BUT. If that happens, dior will discontinue this. Then NO WAY. I rather it stays an open secret than closed to me forever and ever. I have many perfumes but I count this the most special although it is not the most expensive. This is the only perfume that I feel stingy to use. I don't get why dior doesn't sell this in 100ml. WHY? 100ml will be cheaper in the long run. I never buy any perfume NOT at its full size. And I have no choice but to buy this one in 50ml.
Sigh. Sometimes, the smaller it is, the more precious it makes you feel. I have already bought a 2nd one on standby and I'm not even halfway thru my first bottle.
Different friends have always told me that this scent reminds them of me. But this was before I had it. I didn't used to like it at first though. But now... it is a dream... to be floating amongst flowers and smell like this everyday.
Dior, you have done something right. *muak*
Hubby told me every time I wore it that it smelled like toilet soap. Yeah. I thought it was soft, very nice. But, I stopped wearing it.
After reading reviews here, I was determined to find a bottle of this in a duty-free store somewhere! I finally got my friend to get it for me when she went on a trip, without my ever having smelled it myself. I'm SO disappointed! To me/on me, this smells very strongly and simply of lilacs, and that's about it.
Several years ago this was l/e. I love this fragrance but I think it is more for the younger (20's) girls. Still, very adorable. Glad that it's a mainstay now.
Noone will believe this, but to my nose this one smells like a really light version of Poison. I haven't compared the notes etc, but something in Forever and Ever is Poison-ish. And as far as i'm concerned, that's a good thing.
NB. It's only like the floral aspect of Poison - very light & def. no patchouli etc.
UPDATE: Okay, I've been wearing this for a week now and my opinion on this has greatly changed. Apperently, this smells great on me cause I keep getting complimented on how nice I smell!! People are asking me what I'm wearing and where they can get it! I guess compliments helped changed my mind about this since now I've come to really accept it. Its a fabulous fragrance for Spring and Summer -- give it a try. There's nothing else out there like it :)
Now keep a bottle in my purse with me everywhere I go.
I got this off ebay cause of all the good reviews I read here. However, I guess scent is really a subjectional thing. CD's Forever and Ever is a very floral scent - its not a sweet scent. Personally, I'm not loving it on my skin. I really wanted to like this, especially since I dished out a lot of to get it. Hopefully, this will grow on me but for now, I'm just disappointed :(
Forever and Ever is a predominantly freesia and jasmine combination that is nice but honestly, it is a little boring. I think it would appeal to someone that wants very clean-smelling light fragrance for summer.
Here are its notes, per Basenotes' website: Top: Ivy, Freesia,Water Jasmine. Middle: Rose, Almond Blossoms, Geranium. Base: Vanilla, Musk, Ambrette Seeds.
I tested this at the CD counter yesterday. Smells like shower cream and dries down to a weird and "cheap" smell. No no for me...
amazing sent, I had 3 bottles of it. I cant describe homazing this gragrance is, a real fairy smell, very romantic....beautiful the sent of youth
