I love this. Love it. It's just perfect for it's variety. A gorgeous, classy floral but not flowery summery scent with style. It has an Ormonde Jayne-y feel and I mean that in the best possible...

I can't decide between boring or plain boring. This is floral water scent they put in cheap hair gels that sell by the barrel-full. Meh.

In Perfumes: The Guide, Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez rarely give Jean-Claude Ellena's scents more than 4 stars, and, based on Osmanthus, I heartily agree with them. Ellena founded The Different...

Osmanthus is not a "rare" flower as described by the ads, they just want to hype people up to believe its something precious. This flower is abundant in China. I have 2 osmanthus plants, both waist...

I don't get the bad rating (17% only to date?). I mean these are quality perfumes.... It's a big floral, and smells very exotic. I learn that this fragrance was inspired to JC Ellena by a trip...

What a tease. This is so lovely, in a heart-breakingly celestial and pure way. Like many of Ellena's creations, this is sheer; very sheer. The top note is Ellena's signature bergamot, crisp, dry...
