I found a sample of this in a fashion magazine, and it was so irresistible that I-- somebody who never really liked perfume-- ran out and bought my first real perfume within a week. It introduced me to the world of perfume, and I have been hooked ever since!
I love floral scents, but usually find them to be a bit too 'grandma', you know? I am also not a fan of musky notes at all. But this fragrance combined both of those aspects with just the right amounts to create an intoxicating fragrance that I absolutely adore! I can wear this fragrance without feeling like I just mugged an old lady's purse for her perfume, instead like the young, lovely 18 year old that I am.
The only thing I don't like about this product is the perfume bottle. Obviously, that's not enough for me to dock points off its score, but it's really just very boring and plain, especially compared to some other ones out on the market right now. I think I could only like this product more if it looked more like a Vince Camuto fragrance!
Now, I would recommend or gift this in a heartbeat-- if I could stand to share my new signature scent!

On me Romance is a sharp floral scent, a tiny bit spicy, with an underlying sweetness. Initially this is very strong on me, but then the sharpness dissipates into a generic soapy, powdery floral. I do find that there is something in this that gives me a slight headache but can't put my finger on what it is. I don't find that there is anything unique in this fragrance that makes me want to rush out and buy it but I will continue to use up my sample.

I bought this in a gift set at Macy's, along with Blue and Ralph. Like the others, Romance seems high quality in that it only requires a few sprays to last all day long. I am not great at describing notes, but it smells floral, spicy, and maybe even a little fruity. It does have a romantic feel, just like rhe name. Everyone always tells me I smell so good when I wear this. All three of these have been drawing compements, actually, and they all smell so very different from each other!

I can count on the fact that whenever I wear this, I'll feel confident BC of all the compliments I get. Not being cocky but I get a lot of flirts, looks, compliments etc every time I wear it. I always have a bottle. Smells different in EVERYONE though, be warned! I knew 2 other girls who wore it and it just did not smell the same on them, had more of a musky scent rather than the Rosy floral like scent it's meant to give.

Used it for 2 weeks, had a fair sized sample. It's innocuous, pleasant, flowery, sweet, but there's nothing interesting about it. It was just a nice powdery floral scent. I wouldn't buy it, but it certainly is fine for wearing to the office or for a day scent.

I used to love this scent when I was 18 - maybe it was the marketing. 6 years on, I find it slightly too synthetic in smell, too soapy, and just not sophisticated enough and without enough character.
It doesn't do anything wrong, but it doesn't do anything right. Won't be repurchasing :p

Contrary to prior reviews, or as the name Romance suggests, Iwould not describe this as an overall girlie or uber feminine scent. For me, it's sort of an outdoorsy,....sporty, chic scent. After the first hour I absolutely detect a subtle woodsy and musky notes and there seems to be some recognizable Ralph Lauren ingredient reminding me of his Polo scent my first bf gave me decades ago. I really like this My husband loves this. Winner for me!

By the way, it smells a lot like "Pleasures" by Estee Lauder, but is less sharp than Pleasures, which is a good thing:)
