usually i don't like fruity notes ...but this parfum is sooo lovely and delicate.... it is like a pear juice ....then it is has a good sillage(eau de parfum ) it lasts over 4 hours on my skin ...my husband loves it too...i bought the round bottle : it is very cute!!
Petite Cherie surprised me by becoming one of my favorite scents. My problem is that my husband does not really care for perfume, and my early devotion to Mitsuko had to go. I next went through a Miss Dior phase, followed by Chanel 19, but today my favorites are Petite Cherie and Un Jardin sur Nile. Both are what I would characterize as lighter scents, with the "Jardin" being the more complex of the two. Petite Cherie is very fruity (in this case, pear) and the dry down is very subtle. A truly lovely scent and I am frequently asked what I am wearing when I lean in for the usual air kiss...
Simply a darling of a fragrance. Soft, fruity and very elegant for a young lady or more mature woman alike. It's fresh and has top notes of sweet fruits that make it delicious. Not too sweet .. just perfect. Only drawback is it's short lived lasting power. No more than an hour on my skin and then it vanishes. Pity as it's really lovely. I hope you have better luck with it than me.
It's sweet and fruity. Smells like pears. Really. I can't smell much more. I think it's pretty, but it's not me. But I think it is perfect for a teenager.
I picked up a decant of this with a larger order from The Perfumed Court. I don't remember how I spotted it. To me, this smells exactly like canned pears. I'm serious, that smell when you open a can of pears? This is it. That being said, I kind of like it. Yes, that's lame, but it's not a bad smell, just kind of a fakey-pear thing. Unfortunately it has no lasting power on me at all!
A scent of contradictions: Elegant yet simple. Young yet "wise" (read: mature). Freespirted but refined. Simple lovely so to speak. It costs a lot, but I would definitely repurchase
Very expensive fragrance that didn't last at all. The fragrance is nothing remarqable, rather sweet but not offencive. To me, complete forgetable and certainly not worth buying. Unfortunately, I already bought the 100ml bottle. Suits me for buying online without having tested it before.
Reminds me of walking through an orchard. Smells, in words of dear so, just like spring.
Why oh why???? I totally agree with a previous poster who reviewed this as pears and B.O.
Which is really so very sad. Because without that awful b.o. background, it would be the first fruity fragrance that I could see myself wearing and loving! The fruits are just so light and airy, almost ethereal! Which is strange to me! I am so used to heavy, headache inducing sugary fruity fragrances!
Most end up smelling like another BBW or VS scent to me.
This one was different! I LOVED the fruit in this! If only it was alone and without whatever scary note some AG fragrances seem to have!
I actually detected this odd B.O. note in Songes and that Ce Soir Jamis one. Which is terrible, because I adore both of those otherwise! Thankfully my Quel Amour did not have this note. What on earth IS it?
I could never wear these fragrances because of it!
To me, this smells like pears dripping in pear syrup. It was way to sweet for me, and I had to take it back. If you can deal with the sweetness it seems like it would be an uplifting fragrance.
