WOW!!! I cant believe its taken me this long to try this classic fragrance from the 90's. I guess I have always overlooked Elizabeth Arden perfumes as I thought they were too cheesy but I was wrong. I am a true floral lover and to me not many floral perfumes out today are actually florals. 5th Avenue is the perfect floral with a touch of green notes and some heat. Imagine yourself in a lush flower garden, everything is blooming, summer heat, humid, bees flying and pollinating the flowers. You're sitting down in said flower garden in a cape cod wooden chair with a fashion magazine sipping lemonade or green tea. This is the only way I can describe this delectable fragrance. Longevity and projection are huge. You make any room a flower shop. This is a big hit with me. I love it.

A crisp opening of bergamot and apple give this fragrance a zestiness and a top note sharpness that's delightful. NYC begins to mellow with my chemistry into a delicious, warm, ambery feeling, vanilla-spiced, infused by the tonka beans to give it a creaminess that is luxurious and satisfying. It's warm and salty to the scent, almost hypnotic with its musk, enveloping you in its embrace. A hint of buttery gourmand underlies this perfume, drawing you in, yet the scent of tea is strong and keeps NYC grounded. For me, this is a comforting scent, a relaxing, beautiful fragrance that's sensual and can sit either close to the skin or just a little bit further, depending on how you spray. A decidedly segue into Fall scent with its crisper weather. Spray it on your pillows for a soothing slumber. This is a scent I rest my head on my arms to inhale deeply. It also reminds me of Anthropologie's Hamarikyu's Gardens. The bottle is tall and rectangular, reminding me of skyscrapers with helipads on top. Longevity about 2-3 hours with the EdP, lesser with the EdT. I really love this perfume, it's very soothing and calming. Top Notes: Bergamot, Peach, Green Apple. Middle Notes: Black Currant, Jasmine, Peony, Plum Blossom. Base Notes: Amber, Vanilla, Tonka Bean, Musk, Sandalwood.
