It really smells 5th avenue, classy, strong but not too overpowering. To me it has a strong smell of lily of the vally, delicate and clean but stromg at the same time. It is perfect for office and meetings.
I enjoyed wearing this clean smelling perfume for awhile. A nice fresh floral with great staying power. Nothing too exciting though or anything that I would consider for a signature fragrance.
5th Avenue is my first Elizabeth Arden fragrance. I bought it during a clearance sale and, even if I really didn't know what to expect, I ended up buying it anyway due to its dirt cheap price (about $ 10). What a lovely surprise! I find 5th Avenue very classy, much more sophisticated than expected. An every day fragrance with a nice scent that doesn't over power, thumbs way up on this one.
Review for the original EDP release: A fresh, bright, clean floral with a hint of green. I would describe it as feminine, classic, put together and elegant. There are a few people who used to wear this around me at work sometimes and I did like being near them on those days! It exudes sunshine and smiling energy but elegantly so. It never gets excessive, never overpowering, just an aura. I love that it doesn't have any musky, powdery, sharp citrus or pepper notes in it which I mostly dislike. Lasting power is excellent, lasting all day on my wrists.
Review for the modern EDP 2013. I have two 3.3oz/100ml size EDP bottles from the original release and they are still gorgeous and as I remember. I recently purchased a small 1 oz/30ml for my purse but I had to throw it away because it smelt "off" chemically and cheap and a pale comparison to my old bottles. I think they have reformulated or substituted for cheaper materials or shifted manufacturer since the original so I would NOT buy again. I am disappointed this keeps happening with perfumes. If you really like a fragrance when it first comes out, buy it straight away before they switch the quality on you I'd say.
I love the bottle, but thats about it. It is very boring smell and also too sharp. It gives me headache.
nice floral but to me it smells too average, nothing special.
I had a mini of 5th Avenue and enjoyed using it up. Not enough to re-purchase a full bottle because there are so many florals to choose from, and this one is not distinctive enough to fall in love with. But it's very pleasant and appealing.
This is a lovely smell, and it suits me very well. i think it i an all round perfume and the smell is pleasant and nice. This is not a strong scent, so I wouldn't use it in the evening, but other than that it's great to use. it's so glamorous and sophisticated. really feel like a lady when I wear this. And I get a lot of compliments too. One of my HG perfumes!
Love this perfume, smells so fresh, elegant and is so long lasting. A signature for me!
I wear this perfume when I want to feel elegant and smart, like for job interviews. I think it's like my luck charm for interviews because I've always been hired when I'm wearing this fragrance. After saying this, I'll also say that I really like it, it's a very safe floral that you can wear everyday. The design of the bottle is very classy too.
