This perfume was a hit when I was in High School in the late 90s as my friend would constantly wear it. it always reminded me of her. I have tried to wear it since then but ended up wasting it by throwing it away. Its very strong and ended up wearing me instead of the other way around. Its nice on others but I don't think I could ever buy it again.

I have to give Pleasures credit, it blazed trails back in '95. The absolutely pristine, sparkling, soapy-green freshness of it was intoxicating when I first smelled it on a coworker. It was as if she had not only just stepped out of the bath, but was wearing around her neck the bar of expensive soap she'd used. There was a citrusy, leafy sharpness at the opening, followed by dewy and immaculate lilies and peonies. Pleasures, in its silkily cool perfection and its minimalist flacon, blasted our nasal passages clean after the heavy-handed Orientals and sweet, indolic florals of the '80s.
However, I can no longer wear Pleasures because its "revolutionary" outlook has been copied so very many times-- RL Romance, Clinique Happy, Curve, Miracle, Amazing Grace and half the new fragrance launches and flankers each year-- to the point that it feels boring, cliched, and really rather sterile. In attempting virginal cleanliness, Pleasures ultimately overshoots the mark and becomes sharp and pungent and quite synthetic. As do the many fragrances that borrowed Pleasures' idea. Pleasures may have been uber-modern 20 years ago, but ironically, it has driven me back to older classic fragrances that have a fleshier, warmer, more romantic feel.

I do not like it so much.
For me the smell is so strong that i instantly got a headache.
It is too old for an teenager like me. (I am very social and energetic girl)
I think this fragrance would suit older woman who is very gentle and calm.
But if my mom wears it, i would disagree.
It gets me real painful headache.
For mr it didn't get much pleasure at all.

I think Estee Lauder's pleasures is a very clean and fresh scent espcially after you let the perfume dry. I have to admit that when you first spray on the perfume, it is sooooo overpowering, it gave me a headache. But after about 5-10 minutes the overpowering scent diminishes and this nice, flowery, powdery scent comes out and it just smells awesome.
I knocked off one lippy because I know that I will have to endure a headache whenever I spray this perfume.
Personally, I would not get this perfume again because I imagine older people to wear this perfume (I'm only 19). But I will because it reminds me of my grandma who wore this scent and it evokes very sweet childhood memories for me when I was young.

This, I gotta have again once my other fragrances are done. Totally one of my favorites. I tend to be nostalgic with perfumes, and this one seems to top it all since I already finished 2 bottles (I don't normally use the same perfume consecutively). It lasted for a year or so and I forgot about it for quite some time, but I'd love to have one again. I'm not good in describing scents, but it's definitely a yes for me for everyday use.

I don't know what it is about all EL fragrances, but they are way too generic for me. Strong, and generic. I sprayed this once on me, and i had to wash it off immediately, as I knew I would soon have a terrible headache if i didn't.

I loved Pleasures the minute it came out in 1995. However, as at least one other reviewer mentioned, I have noticed that this perfume goes bad fairly quickly. I have other perfumes that have lasted almost 20 years without going bad, even though I know that one should not hold on to old perfume. I may purchase it again, but in much smaller bottles. I like to rotate perfumes and have many of them, so having one that goes bad fairly quickly is so disappointing to me.

I wore this years ago when I all I wore were EL fragrances. I started out with White Linen, my signature scent for years. Then moved on to Beautiful, Knowing, and then Pleasures. The other day, a patient sat down in my dental chair and I immediately recognized her scent. "You're wearing, Pleasures, right?" Yes, she said, impressed. (I wish they had a game show, Name That Scent, I would be a contender.) Anyway, she reminded me why I haven't worn this fragrance in many years: it's too much. Despite it's obvious popularity and half a dozen hybrids (Delight, Intense, Exotic, etc), this stuff is bound to get you noticed. I know that's the point of wearing fragrance, but in this case, it's too much of a good thing. I say steer clear of this one because you are bound to offend. Perhaps the new "eau fraiche" version will offer a toned down alternative that we can all live with..
