Fracas is a perfume for women, not for girls. A Fracas woman is outgoing, confident, feminine, and sexy. Everyone's chemistry is different. I don't get any of the green, oil, rubber, butter, powder, strawberry, or fruit that other reviewers have commented on. My skin tends to devour fragrances, so I don't bother with the light, clean, fresh ones. With Fracas, I get sharp-ish white florals, mainly tuberose. It whacks you upside the head, and that's a good thing. I've tried Creed's Tuberose Indiana and Frederic Malle's Carnal Flower (I didn't get any of the green or burning rubber opening that CF is known for). Both totally underwhemled me. I like my tuberose hooker strength, thank you very much. Fracas calms down quickly on me and the sharp-ish aspect of it does too -- not that I mind the somewhat sharp beginning. Is referred to as "clevage in a bottle," "sex in a bottle," and a "work of art." I agree wholeheartedly. Some who don't care for it refer to it as being "old lady." Oh, hell no. These must be the people who get a strong powder note that I don't. This is PERFUME from glamorous times gone by when females were elegant, feminine ladies. It is not today's "fresh," "clean" "fruity" body sprays for sporty, casual gals on the go. Wear Fracas while donning a black veiled cocktail hat, seamed gartered stockings, short black gloves, red lipstick, and deep Veronica Lake waves in your hair. The women around you will be seething with jealousy -- but you're used to that by now, aren't you?
