Can't believe they discontinued Calandre and Metal to launch this one! It's strong but generic smelling. Almost in a cheap way. I detect some grape scent permeating throughout it's fruity but a more mature type of fruity. The bottle is gorgeous though. I like the design. I actually smelled a dupe of it and since this is so generic they reproduced the scent almost identical to the original (which shows how NOT sophisticated these new scents are unfortunately).
Green and harsh, almost an insect repellent quality to it. Very masculine but has great staying power (most scents have on my skin fortunately or unfortunately depending on how you feel about them...). Very disappointed. Would not buy full bottle.
If you like the original Comptoir's Tiare, this seriously reminded me of it. It's beachy and delicious!
Just repurchased after 10 year break....it's still "get out of the way bitch!" and don't even botber try to express yoursefl "i don't care" I'm wearing Paloma!!!! There!
Smells just like the summer scent just a little bit citrusy. I got a deal at TJ Maxx this weekend. Disappointed. Staying power is great though, I still smell it after 12 hours!

Bought a bottle unsniffed. Sprayed in my boyfriend's new truck and he almost pushed me out onto the freeway. Absolutely awful perfumey bugspray like. Starts okay citrusy but quickly and I mean very quickly turns into a complete mess. Got home four hours later washed my hand and still there. Oh my!

A bit one dimensional, but it has wonderful staying power..I smell grapes and strawberry, reminds me of Aqualina PS without the musk. Very sweet. I like it.
Perfumey and powdery, just an overall irritating fragrance. Not buying!
Very nutty....way way nutty, just like Almonds...not a trace of vanilla at all. It's perfect for those looking for a nutty scent. Not very sweet either. Great to layer with Vanilla scents. Again, customer service is the BEST on the web!

I finally found my coconut holy grail! Tried just about every one out there. This is exactly what I was looking for, a milky sweet coconut. I like to wear it alone and for a very delicious combo, I wear it with Scentsational's Sugar Cookie. A vamilla coconut combo that puts CSP Vanille Coco to shame!
Rubber tires + cigarette ashes + some flowers thrown in = Cuir de Russie (to my nose). It has amazing staying power as it is the case with other Chanel fragrances. This one is definitely not for me...
One of the classiest fragrances out there. Heady floral that it's absolute timeless! Wear on special occasions but I've worn to the office often. Very mature and evokes images of a sophisticated woman. A classic!!! Staying power is incredible, last through following day!

Tried at Sephora. Satisfying surprise! I usually don't like the smell of bananas--it's such a powerful smell and scent as well, just think of smoothies made with banana, the taste overpowers all other fruits! This reminded me of a delicious dessert, caramelized bananas. Staying power was decent for a CSP and the artificial CSP vanilla is undeniably present--however this was surprisingly delicious when combined with bananas. I might have to get a bottle.

Gosh, my nose must have been way off on this one. I could not smell chocolate not even orange!! I smelled only some type of unpleasant dough. The first thought that came to mind was my dog's paws---which I used to love but not eager to go around smelling like it....

What the heck were they thinking with this one??!!! It smells like rotting fruit and alcohol! Even the candy-like sweet CSP typical vanilla gets drown in this mess!
