This scent is very unusual and long-lasting. It was still going strong 10 hours after they spritzed me & would have lasted longer if I hadn't taken a shower. It is a spicy Oriental and IMO the scent does not match the adorable bottle or the name of the fragrance. I was expecting more of the metallic notes, something cold and warm at the same time. It is definitely not for everyone, but fun to try.

The first time I sniffed this it was so sour I thought it had turned. When I went back to it, it wasn't as offensive, almost pleasant. My daughter likes it more than I do.

This is one of SbA's better scents, though I didn't like it as much as I thought I would based on the notes. The vanilla is nice but to me it seems as though there is a nice creamy accord that gets interrupted by musk or something semi-harsh, as though you're crusing along peacefully and then hit a speed bump. Still, it draws you in.

The chocolate, pear and linden blossom all come through on this but I find it to be an odd combination. I was disappointed because based on the description I thought it would be a winner. I much prefer Pretty Things and Vixen to this.
Fragrances -Giorgio Armani - Mania (re-release 2004; beige cap, not black)

Love this! Long-lasting without being overpowering, sexy yet perfect for the office. Mania is hot in a powerful, take-charge, "let's hit Rodeo Drive!" kinda way.
LOVE this! Smells like almond and heliotrope. Excellent staying power. Much better than Serge Lutens IMO.

Light and sweet lemony-vanilla scent. Pretty but too light for me.

Beautiful fragrance! Reminds me of Serendiptious (chocolate cotton candy) but stronger and better.
I AM IN LOVE! :) This fragrance is utterly addicting (it really says something if I wear a scent two days in a row!) This smells just like a rootbeer float with a hint of black licorice. There is a slightly masculine musk note, but it is balanced perfectly by the sweetness of the vanilla. I can't stop smelling my wrist. I am hypnotised...
Fragrances -Guerlain - Aqua Allegoria Ylang & Vanilla
tinkerbell37 3/9/2004 2:06:00 AM
Smelled exactly like I expected - sweet topnote of ylang ylang softened by a hint of vanilla. I would have prefered a more equal balance though. Reminds me a little of hairspray...
An incensy-vanilla similar to Dior Addict. I like this much better though. My favorite Guerlain fragrance to date.
Very tart and true grapefruit. Not at all sweet though, like I prefer. A good candidate for layering with vanillas. Grapefruit (as well as most citrus scents) can vary greatly with body chemistry and have poor staying power so I highly recommend sampling first.
Very simple. Not the best vanilla in the world, but certainly not the worst. Great for layering and much better than L'Artisan IMO.
This fragrance fully encompasses what I believe to be a vintage, old fashioned scent you'd find tucked away in your grandmother's attic. It smells old yet powdery, synthetic and strong. Not for me.
A lovely powdery lime scent that's quite similar to B&BW Coconut Lime Verbena and Burberry Brit. Poor staying power though.
