My fav perfume. So feminine, elegant, sexy. Never get tired of it. Used 2 bottles, planning to buy again.

I'm glad I only got a couple of samples of this, because it's not my type of fragrance. Reminds me of a gorgeous, charming young...man. It could be a unisex fragrance- I think it would smell great on a man or someone manly... just not on me.

This is my most favorite, most repurchased fragrance in my collection. It's incredibly long lasting (you literally smell it from the time you put it on until you wash it off!) and unoffensive or aggressive in any way. I get so many compliments on this perfume and I don't even like telling people what it is because I want to keep it all to myself! Haha

I got a tester of this as gratis when I worked at Sephora. I like it a lot. I like fig frags and amber/sandalwood frags and this one has both. At first spray, the amber is a bit too obvious (amber can be tricky), but the dry down is very pleasant. I can smell the fig and I love that.

Uninteresting musky floral that I found to have a really strong plasticky smell, especially in the opening. (I did try this from a full manufacturer's sample vial; I suppose it is possible that it had turned somehow before I got it.) Really good lasting power, though.

On me it smells very floral and kind of like j'adore. It smells nice and classy, expensive and sophisticated. The sweetness in the scent is there but it's more subtle than in other perfumes. Smells like a night at the opera. I can't see myself wearing this all the time though. I'm not an 'opera' kinda gal.

One of my fave fragrances along with Versace Bright Crystal one but minus the latter 'very flowery scent' - its great for casual wear and evening, whats not to love. I hope they wont discontinue it, it is truly a good one for me at least :P
Light but not too light, feminine yet strong, its the 'golden middle ' :)

I adore this fragrance more than any other I own. I think I finally have an HG fragrance!! Every note of this works with my skin chemistry, and I've had comments from strangers... a bar tender who asked me what I was wearing now calls me Valentino and offered me a free cocktail if I'd let him sniff my neck!
I caught SO spraying some on his pillow before I left on holiday lol!
In NZ this is super cheap- around $80/90 less than you'd pay for CD or Armani, so it's great value, the bottle is simple and stunning, and the lasting power on me is around 5-6 hours. After that I can smell it on myself but I don't think anyone else can unless they're sitting right on top of me.

While this fragrance isn't original or particularly unique, it is a great "safe" scent. I would be comfortable wearing this anywhere as it is not provocative but lends a vague element of seductiveness. In other words, it is appropriate for both a date and dinner with the in-laws. The scent reminds me of the colder seasons; wrapped in cashmere by the fire, a warm cup of tea in hand. A tinge of sharpness lends itself to sophistication, while the fragrance remains very comforting and smooth.
UPDATE: After all this time, I still turn to this perfume for interviews, airplanes, or otherwise meeting people I'm unfamiliar with. I can spray a small amount, and still rest easy in the knowledge that I smell nice but will not run the risk of offending anyone.
