Why do they say on their site that the perfumes are made of natural ingredients when there's Lilial in the composition (butylphenyl methylpropional)? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LilialAlso, is there any violet extract in the compound? If not, the ionone in the ingredients is synthetic.https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/IononeThey do say their products are made from "natural" ingredients, but as long as they don't clearly state that ingredients as the two mentioned above are "a natural component of the essential oils" they used to make this perfume, I don't buy it.

Lovely bottle. Equally lovely fragrance, a little longer lasting than other Etro fragrances. I received it as a gift however, I would not have purchased it. A tad too powdery for me.

Years ago, I went through a phase of loving heliotrope, almond. Wore this daily for a year. Then one day decided it was head ache inducingly sweet, one dimensional, powdery and had become somewhat plastic. Maybe that is the play dough note that some reviewers smell. Perhaps if I had exhibited more moderation, it would still be in my collection. Now, when I want to revisit this type of scent, (the closest I have currently) I reach for LHB or eau d'hiver. I also prefer Caron Farnesiana.

This is a lovely unisex scent. Notes include bergamot, cardamom, blackcurrant leaf, ylang ylang, sambac jasmine, pink pepper, vanilla, patchouli and ambergris. I smell mainly vanilla and bergamot. It is almost a tea scent, and I am very fond of tea fragrances. It's light -- not as light as a Hermes JC Ellena scent or an Atelier Cologne scent, but it will never offend. I guess I would coin a category and call it a light Oriental. I haven't seen osmanthus listed for a note, but it wouldn't surprise me if it's also included.

on first sniff, this smells a little dated to me. As it settles onto the skin, it warms and sweetens up. The closest comparison scent I can think of is L de Lolita, but it is not as harsh (peppery maybe?). I have a dabber sample, and my skin seems to be slightly allergic to it, so those with sensitive skin might want to steer clear.
