In between various other fragrance journeys, I have spent at least two decades subconsciously gravitating towards some sort of Cassie scent. I have a tiny bit of original vintage (mid century) farnesiana, which to me smells like Caron's homage to Cassie along the structural lines of Guerlain's Le Heure Bleue vintage extrait which I have read was reputedly more animalic and less powdery …Read more

I loved the topnotes and the beautiful almond fragrance this becomes. It doesn't seem remotedly dated or powdery to me. This review is for the current (2012) urn parfum.

I'm officially in love with this perfume. It smells complex, delicious, ever-changing. The lasting power is great and it's highly unique. (The initial notes are slightly strident and scary, but pass quickly. Don't scrub before 10-20 minutes have passed.)

Wore Frederic Malle's Une Fleur de Cassie on the same day. They are different takes on the same theme. UFdC is …

Though I generally love almond/heliotrope/mimosa fragrances, I found this unappealingly dated. To me it smelled like a 1930s hatbox. Oh well.

I can imagine how groundbreaking and controversial Farnesiana must have been when originally launched. Certainly there were plenty of heliotrope and mimosa-centered fragrances, but I have yet to smell one from the era that was unquestionably gourmand. Certainly the Acacia farnensiana accord is present, but framed to create on the drydown, the fragrance of fresh angel food cake. As it further …Read more

Hello everyone. I have a vintage bottle of this. There is some of the original perfume remaining in the bottle, it's dark and syrupy now, which I rather like in vintage perfumes. The scent is sweet and floral, I can smell the mimosa and another flower, the soft powder that is comforting, and a little medicinal smell, but for me it has an undertone of ---warm play doh! It has a nice drydown …Read more

Not a favorite of the Caron line. It's just too flowery sweet. Maybe the vintage was different.

All I can say is, I tried. I ordered a sample based on reviews, but the sumptuous gourmand scent I expected was not what was in that little vial. It was something more like…I don’t know. I can’t even describe it. There are no words for what this is. It was weird, though. And not in a good way. Weirdly bad, and after an hour I had to try and scrub it off. Wonder of wonders, it came …Read more

Love, love, love this powdery gourmand that several MUA fragrance board ladies recommended to me. According to the Caron Web site, its a mimosa-based scent. I will definitely purchase a full bottle this year!

I can only speak for the extrait version as that is the only version i have tried. It is an intense softer version of Etro's Heliotrope and yes, i agree with Paschat i smell the Rahat Lakhoum type scent in this (as i did with Etro's heliotrope).

The dry down is lovely and it is a subtle version of Teint de Neige (which i find too powdery). If you like softer heliotrope scents …
