My review is for the EDP
Oh, oh oh oh how I love this perfume!!
Even the price tag (which mind you is actually a lot to shell out for a perfume) can not stop me from purchasing this fragrance over and over. Its a sophisticated floral-- it's not overwhelming at all, unless you spray too much obviously
I always get so many compliments while wearing this perfume, it makes me feel so sexy and fun, classy yet playful, mature also yet youthful! all in one!
Lasting power for the eau de toilette version sucks, but the eau de parfum is much better so I definitely recommend the latter, if you're okay with dishing out just a bit more $$ (tooooootally worth it in my opinion)
I love it so much it's become my signature scent. Day and night, this is the only scent you'll ever smell me wearing! haha
Notes according to Sephora's website:

Yuck. Got this as a free sample. It is so overwhelming and sweet. I could not wash this off fast enough.

First off, I used the EDP not the EDT spray. The EDP lasted longer, and I was very impressed with it. The smell of Flora is not really that floral. It is sweet, floral, with maybe a hint of caramel or vanilla. It is very beautiful. It is something sweet and pleasant that an adult woman can wear. Some scents are too sweet, like candy sweet, or they are way too floral and powdery, like an old woman's perfume. This is perfect for a woman who wants to experience a sweet floral that smells more mature than Juicy Couture's line of fragrances. I thought the packaging was pretty, yet elegant. It is definatley made for more mature 20 somethings and women in their 30's. It was a sample spray, so I did not purchase it. I know that it is expensive, but the lasting power of the EDP was great, so I guess it would be worth the price.

Expensive, synthetic, but somewhat loveable.
It just smells synthetic flowers, and something cheap... I've gotten trauma since my classmate would always spray half a bottle on her for school. One or two sprays = Somewhat beautiful and nice, but half a bottle? No thank you.
I would buy it myself, even if it only was for the bottle, someday I will hehe :)

One of my favourites, the perfume is absolutely gorgeous and certainly does it's name justice. It's beautifully fresh with it's floral notes, not overpowering and is perfect for the spring/summer months. My boyfriend adores is and I love it for going out during the day and for work.
In addition, the bottle is pretty cute.
I'm almost out of my first bottle, but shall definitely repurchase.

I was shaking my head in disbelief when I got a sample of this and tried it without a hope in the world to like it - I just don't go for pure florals, they don't shine on me , they are too discreet and I usually stand out of the crowd here in Germany (a tatar-mongolian blood is running deep there somewhere), plus my skin practically absorbs most floral perfumes. The sample was eau de toilette, and i sort of gave up on it before even trying. I thought - alright, i'll have my 5-minute fun smelling the wrist and then i'll say good-bye to yet another vanishing-all-to-quickly floral. Well, well.. 4 hours later I am trying to figure out where this amazing smell is coming from, then i brush my nose past my wrist accidentally, and it strikes me: FLORA! First of all, I don't believe that eau de toilette in a sample is the same as eau de toilette in regular sizes. Samples are marketing devices, so i bet my bottom dollar that the strength here is amplified. Ignoring this, I must say: this is one of the most well-blended florientals out there. It reminds me a little of ROSE ABSOLUE by Yves Rocher because it has this creamy leather base that gives the scent depth and staying power. Also, I find it quite amazing, that a scent, targeted at a spring/summer season works so well in winter! - this is so seldom found in fresh florals, if at all actually. The only thing I don't like is the name: flora hardly suggests character or gives your imagination a kick. Currently on a hunt for an eau de perfume, hoping it will also be issued in pure perfume at some point. A keeper.

This review is for the body lotion. I LOOOOVE it so much. The fragrance is very floral, clean and sensual. Although the perfume is nice, it was a bit too much for me so I settled for the lotion. I found a 6.7 oz bottle at Marshall's for $30. Not bad considering it normally retails for $50 at stores like Macy's and Sephora. I also found it on Overstock and Amazon for $34 - $36. Either way, it's soooo worth every penny. The fragrance is intoxicating and very long lasting.

Smells nice. It's floral...not a disgusting in-your-face floral but a beautifully done non-descript one. I'm sure if you have a trained nose that you can identify some of the notes but to me everything is just so well-blended that nothing about it stands out to make it unique. It seems to me, a fragrance you would wear for your wedding. It's beautiful and classic and a non-offensive floral...it's just sadly lacking in anything that makes me actually want to purchase it....and I'm a bit of a fragrance junkie and have many, many bottles cheap and mid-range-high end (YSL, Lancome, Chanel, Givenchy),

I was given this parfum as a gift, does what it says FLORA- ie a powdery floral scent for me like a fresh powdery garden-not for everyone- I like fruity- but got many compliments upon wearing this- would repurchase.. slightly soapy ...

Just ordered another bottle, but larger. I am so excited! I had this for a long time, but only this year did I use it consistently and manage to use up my first ever bottle of perfume.
I never liked perfumes growing up, and only used what my mother or sister had or recommended. When I got this as a gift, I loved it but thought it was just another fragrance. Well, it has captured my heart ^-^ I only wear this _unless_ I'm really in the mood for something more specific ( or my alternative fragrance, B&BW Pomegranate body spray). Other than that, this is it.
I wish it lasted longer, it is an EDT. I am also going to order the EDP to spray on before leaving the house and use this to freshen up, most likely keeping it in the car. I think a rollerball is better for the purse.
It is perfect for someone like me, who can't stand too heavy, too sugary/warm scents. It is beautiful and fresh, feminine, elegant, with a hint of warmth (probably the sandalwood.) I love vanilla but can't put up with the smell, and this just does a fantastic job at satisfying the part of me that craves the feeling vanilla gives me.
YES FLORA, YOU ARE PERFECT.
BTW! I order it at a discount price on a discount website....figure it out :)

I really love the perfume. I got it as a present from my boyfriend and we both love the way it smells. Its a citrus/floral scent and its just very optimistic and upbeat. Its weird but sometimes when I put it on in the morning it just makes me feel happy smelling it. I think its a very good spring and summer scent but can definitely be worn all year round :)

This was my 2011 Summer Scent and it served me well. It's pretty, feminine, youthful and vibrant. I admittedly partied a bit and it was the perfect perfume for both day and night.
It doesn't receive a 5 because it is not the most creative or unique scent and really doesn't last (my biggest problem). But I would buy a bottle in a heartbeat...but only on sale.

And yes, I would buy you over and over and over again Flora.
I've been hanging on to a sample I've had of Flora, only to find out it was the EDT version of it. This is a beautiful scent, and I thought that Bronze Goddess was a good compromise for the summer (I had to replace a summer scent because I am heavily in love with my Burberry Brit). Flora is one of those scents I see myself wearing every day. I feel that it's very fitting for my persona, and my wardrobe.
I must admit, for a while I did avoid Flora (without smelling it) because it was simply Gucci. I'm not sure why I steered away from this brand, I just did. And yes, I am somewhat of a "perfume snob".
Flora makes me think of a girl looking through clothes to wear, tousling the bottoms of her dress, but at the same time Flora has this "badass" quality to it. The kind of quality says "Yeah, I MIGHT be there.". Not in a snobby way, more so in a mysterious way. Flora is the fashionably late, the kind but honest and she never apologies, because... Flora is simply being herself.
This is a citrus, floral and I find it quite sweet. Even having the EDT version, I feel that it contains such a milky quality to it. I smell oranges? That may be the reason why it smells a little sweet to me. Most perfumes I lean towards are vanilla. I'm quite surprised that I like this citrus scent. As for lasting power, I do not recommend if you are using the EDT. This is why I bought EDP online for the longevity.
I was walking with my boyfriend in the grocery store today looking for something to eat, and he was leaning his head on my shoulders and said "Something smells good." and he genuinely didn't know where it was coming from. He looked around wondering what it was. I just smiled and walked to the checkout line.

I got a sample of this fragrance some week ago and I like it. It's not my signature scent and I wouldn't purchase it in full size. It is a fresh floral scent and not at all overpowering. A "clean" fragrance if that makes sense.

I purchased this just the other day and when I first smelt it in the store it reminded me of elegance. It's a fresh and clean fragrance. I will use it often for at home and going to meet up with friends type of fragrance. I like the perfume... But I won't purchase again, as I like various other fragrances.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
i really like this fragrance. Its very subtle, fresh, and light. A very clean smell.. like laundry or fresh out the shower kind of smell. Not my 'signature fragrance' but definitely one that i use alot

Bought this one recently, I was hooked by the first sniff! It's sweet, elegant, classy, and mature (not in a old lady way) in the drydown. It's a tiny bit too woody for my liking though but it's still a gorgeous fragrance. I treated myself to the EDP, £40 for 30ml, bit too expensive. I'll try something cheaper next time, but still, I recommend this one! :)
