Only the 3rd fragrance I ever purchased so I deliberated for awhile on this one. It is very light, fresh, and with basically a flaky and flighty personality when initially sprayed and seriously reminded me of a room freshener. However, over the hours, it warmed on my skin and became MUCH richer and a little more complex with a hint of spiciness, but still the top fragrance of garden flowers which is why I ultimately purchased. It definitely doesn't last, 5-6 hours tops, but that's what you get with such a flaky fragrance, they just don't stick around
;-) Still great every day fragrance that's pretty with that tiny spicy kick.

This is a cheerful, bright, yet delicate Spring floral. It positively sings from the moment I spray it on until it fades which is all too quickly. It is like a sweet little Spring bird--very charming!
It does have the gentle, creamy sweet note in many Byredos. I feel it does not detract from the freshness of the fragrance, but rather kept it from veering into cologne-y territory, and keeps La Tulipe a gentle, delicate beauty.
La Tulipe is a charmer. I find myself reaching for it often, and will probably purchase a bottle in spite of the cost and poor longevity.

Overall this is a nice scent, perfectly built around this lovely springy tulip note. But when I first sniffed it, my brain immediately started to search for something already smelt before. At first, I associated this with Bond's Park Avenue, which used to be one of my faves some four years ago, but then I sort of fell out of love with it because I started smelling some sort of "greasy", not too pleasant note in it (I still do, although I've started to appreciate it again at very small doses).
But it wasn't exactly like that... It was more of... OK, here it was: BAL D'AFRIQUE! Yes, this fragrance smells so very much like its sister. It only comes out a bit lighter, a bit clearer, but overall, they are very similar.
And what sets me apart from this is exactly what set me apart from Bal d'Afrique: a creamy, sweet note that takes off the fragrance's ingenuity, it's freshness. To me, it's not springy if it lacks that fresh, almost pungent note, like some citrus, for example.
A nice fragrance, but that's it. Also, it has a very poor lasting power.

This is a beautiful, straight-up tulip scent. It seemed very "sweet floral" to me, but not gourmand sweet. Agree with longevity is average, not great. It smells so Spring.

I Gave it a "5" despite the lasting power, which is not more than three hours on my skin.
This is one of the lightest, prettiest, wearable NON SWEET florals I've ever encountered. Rather linear, but clean, neat, and acts like a soloflore despite the other notes. I get only a creamy, tulip flavor from this.
According to FRAGRANTICA--
Top notes-- fressia, cyclamen, rhubarb
Middle notes- pink tulip
Base notes- woodsy notes, vetyver, green notes
It is very very beautiful. Worth the pricetag of 185 or 195 usd, despite the poor lasting power.
