This is my new winter fragrance. I love it. It is warm, sexy and sweet but not overpowering. It's not something a well experienced nose would reach for. I picture a woman in her late 20s wearing this. Someone that still enjoys her fun but also has her eye on future goals. On me, it starts off warm and fades into a the floral and fruit notes. The staying power is about 5 hours on me. It's pleasant borders on common but it won't offend anyone.
Top notes: Neroli, Raspberry
Heart notes: Jasmine, Orange Blossom
Base notes: Marshmallow Accord, Heliotrope, Vanilla

I feel a bit compelled to write this review since I don't actually own a bottle of this perfume but my sister does and I have been toying with myself whether to buy my own bottle! Basically, I love the scent but it is quite faint and you need a lot of it to be able to smell it (and for the price, I don't think I can justify it!)
There is no beating about the bush here, this perfume is lovely! It has notes of vanilla, chocolate and other warm sweet stuff that I can't put my finger on! It compliments anybody, especially for everyday use. The bottle is lovely and classy too!
My sister actually only discovered it due to an ad in Elle magazine, which is proof I suppose that those perfume samples do work! So she bought a bottle but she too complains that it isn't very bold and barely there sort of smell.
When I've worn it, I can barely smell it on myself! I think I would definitely buy it if it was more concentrated but because it is Parfum and not even Toilette, obviously they won't be releasing a stronger version. Sorry D&G, it is a lovely scent but just not strong enough to warrant £60!
(But, please see my other perfume reviews! Angel, Vera Wang, Pace Rabanne etc)

Pour Femme is a sweet, sugary fragrance that would be perfect around holiday time. If I had to pin down the scent, I'd have to say it smells like Red Vines licorice, but in a good way. It doesn't smell like anything else on the market. It's not a people pleaser. Either you like it or you don't like it. I just happen to like it! I recommend if you don't want to smell like everyone else and you like sweet scents.

After reading previous reviews I was so looking forward to testing this. Heliotrope, rasberry, vanilla - some of my favorite notes! Described as powdery- I love powder! However, on my skin this is a scrubber. I was so looking forward to a soft and powdery fragrance but on me it was dry and dusty, with a plasticky artificial note. It reminds me of the sheer nylon/polyester drapes at my grandma's house that I would play in or hide behind- this has that same sun-bleached dusty sneeze-inducing polyester scent.

I tried this at the perfume counter, along with a few others, and eventually bought D&G The One Desire.
This version of D&G Pour Femme is really not nice, in my personal opinion. I find it a little nauseating. My boyfriend was there and he sniffed the fragrance tester too, and immediately shook his head with a disapproving look.
I was surprised that i disliked it so much, as i'd seen some good reviews on this page. Maybe some people will like it, I certainly don't!

On me this is a warm, sultry, vanilla, raspberry, marshmallow. Soft, gentle, a little powdery - really pretty. Best for coolish days.

This is *nothing* like the original D&G Feminine red cap, which I hated (it made me literally nauseous). This is a completely different scent. A sales associate at Belk told me they removed it from their stock because it wasn't selling well -- because women were disappointed that it wasn't the return of the original. It definitely isn't, but to me, that's a good thing.
It's sweet, yes, but to my nose, there is also a definite tartness, a tang, that other reviewers don't mention. It's a light red-fruit & sweet cream -- with a sharp, crisp edge to it, almost like a light incense. It reminds me of rose wine or cranberry juice -- with cream & sugar. Tart red fruit with a bite -- plus woods -- plus creamy sweetness.
Now that it's October, I have pulled this out, and I'm noticing the sweetness & marshmallow topnotes that I didn't particularly notice in the hot humid summer weather when I bought it. Now I'm getting a "cranberry fluff" -- or a "pomegranates & cream" -- or a holly berries feeling. It's 1/2 tart & tangy red fruit and 1/2 sweet cream, to my nose.
After it dries down though, the sweet creaminess mostly goes away, and I'm left with a dry & tart, tangy (almost light incense-y) red-fruited drydown.
Quite a unique fragrance, which puts me in mind of tartan plaid, Fall, and a congealed cranberry salad or a cranberry relish you might serve at the holidays.

i wouldn't buy it unless it was from a private s*ller on evilbay or something; that's where i got my bottle. i'd swap for it, too. i'm trying hard not to give money to companies that test on animals. *hard for a perfume addict
i love it.
that said, if i were mourning the red cap original beauty, this would upset me and make me mad, this new one. but i only liked the red cap, and i was late to the party.
starts off with strong orange, but only for about 5 minutes.
there's some marshmallow, but it's nice ~ and i don't like the sickly sweet ones. usually.
it's everything i wanted hanae mori butterfly to be. it's soft. it really just melts into my skin. there's a twinge of incense, but only every few moments. this lasts the whole time, but again, it's only every so often i smell something just a little incensy.
the berry is sweet, but it's tempered, and not sickly, at least on my skin. i love butterfly (pink, mostly), but there was always something a little screechy and a little sharp about the woods/currant. this has those on me, but they're super soft. it's just like velvet... after the orange fades.
there's always a little bit of incense on me, in the drydown, and sometimes a little perfect dryer sheet air as well.
so, if you think of this as just another new scent and ignore what its amazing mother was (they're polar opposites, to me), this is a beauty.
it might be too generic for a lot of people, but i just love it.

Gorgeous! This hits all of the perfect notes for me. The balance is amazing to me. Not too powdery, not too sweet, not too woodsy. It smells like a very arid, dry vanilla. I was so upset when Escada Collection was discontinued, this is my new favorite. They do not smell alike, but I at least have a substitute. Please give it a try.

Oooo - this is beautiful, Long-lasting with many moods. This is an elegant fragrance that has a subtle playfulness,as though it has a selective secret part saved for special times. It's positive, happy, clean, fruity, and marshmallow-sweet, but it's nothing like a run-of-the-mill B&BW recycled formula body spray. This doesn't portray wanting to be a teenager, it portrays a a multi-faceted, adventurous, fun spirit.
