Top Notes: Bergamot, African Orange Flower, Gardenia, Nutmeg, Green Notes.Heart Notes: Honeysuckle, Tuberose, Jasmine, Iris, Walnut, Peony.Base Notes: Vanilla, Amber, Cedar, Guaiac Wood, Woodsy Notes.After reading the many glowing reviews and carefully considering the notes, I blindly bought this, and I must say I am very glad I did so. This is such a feminine floriental. I am very pleased with it. It does not smell quite like anything else in my collection.Upon initial application, I could smell very fresh smelling white flowers (gardenia predominantly), and vanilla. I think I am also getting the nutmeg and walnut with perhaps a touch of amber in the dry down. Organza is very floral and very sweet. If you like florientals, but you do not like very sweet parfums, then you probably will not care for Organza very much. This is a classic definitely worth adding to your collection.Fragrance: 8.5/10 Projection: 8/10Sillage: 7/10Longevity: 6/10

Organza! I love it! A delicious yummy warm vanilla that gets better as the day goes on and lasts. I detect a little marzipan in there as well. This was made in the 90s? Where have I been? It was probably too expensive for me at the time, seen the bottle dozens of time in ads. Recently read some reviews and decided to buy some online and unsniffed and I'm glad I did. My hubby hugged me and said I smell beautiful and it is a beautiful scent, the name is very fitting. Just go lightly as it is strong.

I like this one a lot . It literally feels like an enormous warm hug. It's definitely a comfort scent for me. I like to use it for a night in after a warm bath, smells very sweet and comforting. To me it smells like vanilla and honey maybe with a hint of powder. Although it's an older formulated perfume I don't get that " old lady " scent at all just smells like a current sweet perfume to me . It's definitely a wintery scent because has that warming,hugging and protecting quality. It also has a thick creamy sensation that I absolutely love. I also have the body lotion, the body lotion to me smells a bit more flowery and a bit more spicy . Lasts a relatively long time on my skin . The projection is on the medium site on me I can definitely smell it on me I bet the others can too but in a district way.the overall feel that I get from this one is an elegant feminine sweet warm scent

This is my favorite perfume....for years now! I have tried other perfumes, just to have a variety I guess....but I always go back to Organza. It lasts for a few hours on me, it not too heavy, and not too light. It is perfect for day time or evening.

Gorgeous syrupy yet rich and somewhat cloying but in a good way. Spicy nutmeg and floral jasmine which stops it becoming christmas cake like. The older yet somewhat more demure sister of Organza Indecence. Given the choice I would take indence any day but still love this. Make sure to get a vintage edition of this if you can, the newer bottles (without the frosted glass front) just don't smell quite the same - sadly this is another legendary fragrance to suffer the dreaded re-formulation.

I am so in love with Organza. It's everything to me that all other five-star reviewers have expressed. It's ridiculously sensual, its sillage is fantastic, and I feel in love with myself while wearing it. If organza had a scent, this would be it.

I don't have this, but one of my relatives does. You need to see the whole picture here: she has worn this from about 16 years old, but already at that time people often said she looked like she was 25 - not because she looks old, but because she has quite stong facial features and quite a womanly body. She looks a bit like Julia Roberts did in her younger years and is 5'8 tall. She always dresses in a feminine way, often with heels or wedge shoes, and most often the colours are quite dark. .On top of that this smell fits her body chemistry perfectly! It smells, like another reviewer said, like the smell is part of her. On her there's very little sweet smell... there is vanilla, but it's not sweet... there's something dusty about the smell too that makes me think "vintage". It reminds me of the time of feminine women from the 1920's with strong makeup, glossy hair and simple elegant dresses. Women that had that Godess-like feeling over them. On her it kinda smells mysterious, cozy, not flowery, definitely not old-lady (as I've heard many people working in perfume stores call it :/ ), like some kind of natural material and very classy..This can have quite strong sillage, but on my relative it didn't - the longevity was probably 3 days, but the sillage wasn't very strong - you would need to be furthest 2 meters away from her to sense it, but it's not strong even if you hugged her. Must be perfect reaction between body chemistry and this perfume :)

I haven't bought that scent but used it many times with my sister-in-law (we are very close almost like sisters , even in looks :)..Though this has been years ago but I still really like it and remember it as a reviewer here -Mr Mellow - decribed it to a T ..It's the Feminine Fragrance that would evoke a man but it wouldn't turn him into a savage , really "Soft Power " like a perfectly manicured hand with classic red nail varnish..It is not an old lady smell , NO WAY ..I used this with my SIL when we were at the beginning of our 20's and never felt or thought it was older for us , this is a heavy floral , fruity scent that is worn by a female , not those sweet , candy , girly , yuckies attacking us everywhere now (think Britney Spears Fantasy ..Oh my God ..) this is for a female of any age , no tomboy who smells like lollipops or candies when she puts on perfume ...Edit : I think this has been re-formulated , I used the old version only ...

Sampled it today at my local drugstore and have decided - one cannot go through life without a small bottle of Organza. I cannot say I could wear it daily, I cannot say, that it is a versatile scent, I wouldn't place it as an evening or a daytime scent - it seems to be a bit of everything, really... It seems to fall into a gourmand group for me, rather that heavy floral. Its neighbours in that happy-comfy olfactory family would be Ange ou Demon, Burberry Brit , Chloe Love and Alien. In fact, this is just what Burberry Brit is, just swap green for honeysuckle and multiply by 2. For some reason 50s-60s come to mind, peppy skirts and dresses, cardigans always perfectly buttoned up, rockabilly chairs, the ode-worthy wallpaper patterns... I have instantly imagined preparing for sitting down on Sunday to eat a Sunday roast with a family mid-November, choosing a comfy wool dress and not forgetting the stockings! The closet is full of clothes and on the dressing table - beads, pearls, crystal glass containers for hairpins... there's a feeling of "cluttered" that comes with this scent, but in a good way - the way a wardrobe full of clothes that have absorbed perfume smells, when you just open it. Thanks to honeysuckle Organza is irrevocably cheerful: no one can possibly wear it with a sad face! Cosy, nuzzling, uplifting, unpretentious and reliable for duration of the "pick-me-up" effect. If you are in your 30s and further into your timelessness :) - it can be worn daily in cold months. If you are entering your 20s - you can make it rock if you take on a hippie look ( hardcore: knitted multicoloured hoodies, long skirts, huge platform boots and so on ) - in my opinion, this could work brilliantly together. What does amaze me is that it is only 16-17 years old! - this is so not the 90s!!! I always thought it comes to us from some post-WW2 times or at least from the early 80s! The bottle is the only thing I am not a huge fan of: it is exactly what held me back from trying this perfume for years: it looks incredibly tacky and cheap-looking, especially the cap. I am also not a huge fan of flacons that are tall and unstable. 1 lippie for such an unworthy kitschy dress this fabulous scent is confined into.

This perfume is very long lasting!! scent is great, but is classic, is not my style...I think is a fragance I should use when I older, not now, I'm 28. But be sure that fragance is femenine, elegant and it will last a lot on your skin
