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)...

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...

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...

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...
