I really thought I had already reviewed Five Star Royal Secret II but since I haven't I'd say it's about time! It may be past time but here goes anyway! Thankfully I found this scent early on and did stock up before it became as unattainable as a Bigfoot sighting! I actually was never aware of there having been an original RSII. Monteil's Royal Secret I knew about for sure and love but I came at this one (FSRSII) as if it were a brand new fragrance. I learned about it from another perfume lover's site in the past and this one is probably on my top 10 of all time. Powder bomb? Definitely! When I am craving powdery lush spices this is absolutely my go-to numero uno scent. I never smelled or at least recall smelling Anne Klein II but I wish I had. To me Royal Secret II is sort of a tobacco smoke vanilla rich powder blanket that just encompasses you in deliciousness. If I were in a cold clime and just feeling chilled and in need of warming, I'd don my most cuddly lounge wear and then put on some Royal Secret II and snuggle up in front of a nice warm crackling fireplace. That's the feeling I get with this fragrance. Luxurious warmth and lush powder. I'm not sure how attainable this fragrance is now after seeing it for RIDICULOUS prices on Ebay. Maybe it will be brought back someday. It should be brought back. I would join in any campaign to get this one resurrected. It's incredible. This does for me what Habanita does. It's unabashed indulgent coziness in a bottle.
