This product was recommended to me by a SDM sales rep. 03 Soft Ivory is the best colour match for my skin tone that I've found yet, which makes it a pretty nifty find (for myself, at least ^.~). It does have a strong floral scent; happily I think it smells yum. YMMV, so definitely smell it before you buy it. It feels light going on, blends smoothly, and dries to a soft powdery finish. It is very matte, as advertised. I prefer a dewy finish, however, so despite the great tone match, this is not my perfect foundation. My largest complaint about the Clarins line in general (this product included) is that the packaging lacks glamour. Next to my SmashBox, and even my Quo, the Clarins bottles just look... well, dull. Despite the quality of the products, the Clarins marketing image isn't one that I want to buy into, visceral shopper that I am.
