I guess I understand the mixed reviews for this perfume - because it is unexpectedly strong. One spreay really does last all day - and for people that like lighter scents or scents that fade into the background this would be a nightmare as it starts out strong and ends strong. I however love it. It was one of the first perfumes that I bought for myself (so i guess the nostalgia factor plays in a little bit). I was actually surprised with how much I liked it as i am often overwhelmed by strong perfumes for example I can't wear poison or hypnotic poison - everyone asks if I'm wearing men's cologne... although I don't wear it as often as I used to I still rotate it in when I feel like something a little strong and surprising.
I LOVE this perfume, its soooooo perfect, I have a big summer one of this too. My only problem is the packaging, the bottle is ugly and white trash looking, and also it looks soooo small, I have the 50ml and it looks much smaller then alot of my 30 ml bottles. But would still buy again as this is such a nice perfume.
I bought this fragrance in Montreal 3 years ago. I kept it sealed during these years....
I finally ended up using my whole stock of fragrances .....(15 bottles maybe).....and decided to open and try this one. Actually I didn't remember the scent of this.
What a surprise ! I really am in love with this fragrance.
I have finished the bottle last week and I can say now it's an HG perfume for me.
I love the bottle, name, lasting, etc...
The first fragrance I like from Cacharel.
I'm sorry, I am just not fond of this at ALL.
It's most likely just my body chemistry, but I tested it out on my wrist and hated it immediately. It smelled too sharp and strong and like bathroom cleaner and like old-lady-trying-to-be-cool. Still, I wanted to like this, and I thought I would have more luck on the drydown, but it just accentuated all that even more, plus it started to smell powdery, like badly perfumed makeup.
I wish I could describe it better, but that's the only connotations I can make about this.
Would never, ever buy.
Very fruity floral scent. If I could describe this fragrance in one word it would be Yummy. It is a bit strong so one spray of this perfume in the morning is suffice for me as the scent lasts all day.
This is a really pretty fragrance, something about it strikes me as very unique and not your typical generic fruity floral. I do wish it came in edp/ was a bit more complex, but it's still a beautiful fragrance. Though this doesn't seem very common/popular these days, I find a lot of eastern european women seem to wear this for some reason....
i bought a bottle of this stuff back in middle/high school somewhere because i'd read a review about it in some magazine at the time. i guess i liked it well enough at the time, but eventually grew out of it when i matured a little more and threw it at the bottom of my drawer for many years because it started to make me sick. well i pulled it out again recently and spritzed a little of it on, just as a test. i actually like it now, but in a way, i'm pretty sure, that nostalgia can only allow. it reminds me of my younger years so i like it for that reason, but the smell is also very nice and very unique. i'd only wear it for a night out, though. definitely not a daytime scent anymore ;)
one of my most absolute favorites among favorites. this smells divine!!! it is a sexy sweet oriental floral with great staying power. it stays close to the skin on me. only those going in for a hug know how incredible i smell. i try to keep as many bottles of this as i can on hand because i love it so.
Smells very citrusy initially but dries down beautifully to a warm amber floriental, sexy and classy. Lasts a long time. I will buy this soon.
The first time I smelled it I was shocked - it was so strong that it make me sick. I think the people at the store sprayed too much perfume on the test strip, because some time later I got a small/mini bottle and was pleasant surprised that I really liked it, and it was not strong.
It is fruity, sweet, and has personality.
I think those who are not fond of fruity scents probably won´t like it, but I like the scent, the bottle and the name.
