I could'nt describe it better than the first reviewer, this fragrance reminds me of Habit Rouge and i love them both. spicy, cosy winter scents.
This is a powdery cloying floral. not worth my money.
This is a classy multylayerd fragrance, zesty gingery fresh and a bit floral and NO leather. like MellyHelly i too get that hay smell but in a fresh pleasent way . to me it's Madame Roshas mixed with Clinique Happy or better yet Lancome benghal mixed with bulgary Eau Parfumee Green Tea .
I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE IT. this is a very exotic fresh fruity floral (not white floralish). I get tons of compliments on this one. i ordered unsniffed on line and the minute i inhaled the intoxicating aroma i ordered another full bottle and no perfume had that effect on me ever. so glad i found it. yippee.
If you find the original Cristobal too heavy or harsh maybe this version is for you. this is an elegant creamy ambery citrucy somewhat bitter fragrance i can only wear during FALL/WINTER.
Like other reviewers have already said this is very similar to Chanel #5 but softer, warmer and without the soapiness. I LOVE IT.
This is a very DRY harsh and smoky leather scent .as much as i tried to like this one, i just can't wear it, it's been sitting in my drawer (the whole 100 ml bottle), waiting for more than a year only to be washed off after few minutes, first i thought it was a body chmistry thing so i spritzed it on paper and on a towel but it still smells offputting to me .
This is THE perfect eye brow pencil ever. I have ash blond hair and as the other reviewers i had hard time finding the right shade of pencil, they are ither too yellow or too red and obvious on my skin until i saw this one on the internet, and it's perfect, it looks sooooo narural on me that after applying even i dont notice it. 02/10/09 EDIT: I've been using this pencil gladly avery day and i still have 1/2 of it left so i still have 2 1/2 years to finsh the firt pencil.

This is a SUPER product.I have the 02 Aqua Cinnamon which is a medium brown shade with an excellent staying power (12-14 hours in the summer) no smudging or fading and without irritating my sensetive eyes.

Oh boy!!! what a complex fragrance, it's citrusy, woody, chipre floral and incensy all at the same time. deep and intoxicating I just cant stop sniffing it.
Well, the first 5 minutes are nice, I get fresh musky florals and that's it, then it's gone for 20 minutes to emerge as a faint shadow of itself.
The moment my daughter and i spritzed this on we looket at each other and sayd this smells like pomegranate, lovely fresh citrusy floral scent, very interesting unique inoffensive and pleasant. and as anther reviewew has mentiond this is a happy scent.
What an unusual fragrance, intrigueing, deep, earthy, leathery chipre. this is not a flirty summer fragrance for the girly girls but rather alegant and mature, definitely for the confident woman.11/10/07 EDIT: I still think all i wrote above but one thig i did'nt mention is it's UNWEARABLE, whenever i put it on me i know i will offend people so i wash it off and put something else

The best version of Paris IMO. the orginal is too perfumy for my taste. to me RDV smells like freshly picked roses from the garden so light, fresh and green. lovely for summer.
This is a beautiful light chipre, normaly chipre fragrances smell very bitter and harsh on me but this one just glows. i had such a hard time this summer loving any fragrance on me, every thing i put on felt heavy and unbecoming, untill i foun Y, it saved my summer.
