I've been on the hunt for a floral chypre that is also fresh. My favorite frag of all time was Laura Ashley no. 1 which I considered a fresh floral chypre. Failing to find anything I liked, I decided to revisit this classic from the 90's. I was amazed at how pretty Mariel still smells to me. The fruity part is not too sweet and the floral part is understated - it is very balanced. edit: I noticed after wearing a day or 2 this had a funky odd sour smell to it. Kind of hidden by all the pretty notes yet it would creep up on me after being on my skin a while. My friend, a long time Mariel lover, confirmed this has been reformulated which h20 themselves verified. She no longer likes the perfume, which shes worn for many years, but she says the lotion seems the same so I might wear that instead.
