Aldehydic like Arpege, or is that the combination of Damascene rose and lily? Not sure. Definitely the same tarry rose smell somehow, dark, a little sticky, almost dirty. Interesting, but too formalized for daily wear. Might workj better as a night time scent. A bit too formal for me, and I've never quite settled with that strong aldehdic tar and rose feeling in perfumes. Otherwise …Read more

Petroleum-tinged lily of the valley and a dirty iris ride herd on a wild, shrubby rose and its sharp leaves and thorns. I'm sorry to say that I don't care for this one bit, after getting a sample with a skincare order. I suppose this is what constitutes a "green" rose rather than a red one. I distinctly get a sharp leaf-like note from this that borders on poison sumac, and …Read more

I got this as a free sample. This is a soft floral. Someone else described it as April Fresh and I have to agree. It has this spring time very floral scent that is also refreshing and airy at the same time. Nothing heady or musky in it. Nothing chemical. Excellent for someone that like's florals but wants something that is sweetly soft and portrays a good girl or romantic person. UPDATE: …Read more

There is something about this line, as Maxmina has noted. This is a brisk floral, sort of an April-fresh, clothesline-dried floral. There is no headiness, sultriness, nor anything even remotely femme fatale. This is light, lilting, winsome, wholesome -- and fresh. I do not think it smells terribly like Anais Anais, but it does have a sort of shampoo freshness I find most irrestistable. Like …Read more

Lots of "cold", not fresh lily of the valley in Caterina de Medici.

This is a lovely floral, of Damascus Rose, Lily of the Valley, and Florentine Iris.
I do agree with the previous post, that it is similar to Anais Anais. This perfume has been replicated from a secret 16th century formalae.

I don't find it strong at all...in fact it is very soft, but sophiosticated. The rose note dominates on my skin, especially in the begining. The dry down …

Boy, I'm sure glad I sampled this. When you read websites' descriptions they sort of lull you into thinking yes, yes this could work! This doesn't work.I like Anais Anais but you can get that online rather cheaply compared to the $80.00 for this but, this is a watered down, much more disappointing version of Anais Anais and doesn't last very long. I have found that this …Read more

This is a strong floral pretty similar to.... Anais Anais. So, if you love this last you'll probably adore Caterina de Medici.

A soft sweet delicate floral w/a hint of powder, reminds me a bit of anais anais. Unfortunately it does not work for me.

There is something I just love about every iPdF, they all have that certain something which I cannot quite figure out. This is a gorgeous fresh floral and goes immediately on my wishlist. So feminine, flirty and fresh - like you just stepped out of the shower!
