This is very similar to the original version of Aliage by Estee Lauder. Similar listed notes, and profoundly similar in scent. I don't really find it that impressive or compelling, and the prices it fetches nowadays are cuh-razy. Crazy!!

Inoui! Is this fragrance actually back? This was my number one fragrance in the 80's, and I wish Shiseido would bring it back (along with the original Zen, which I still wear. Sparingly. So I can put off running out.)

This is very similar in style to Zen in the white bottle from 2000, but much more beautiful. It has that lovely velvety texture that Shiseido perfumes do, like an elixir they added liquid gelatin to, so that it comes on softly, without the alcoholic blast that most French perfumes use.

If there ever was a perfect fragrance for autumn, this would be the one. I believe it's the pine needles note is what I find most enthralling. It isn't a sweet little wide-eyed girl scent but that of the energetic Powerhouse Woman of the 80's who knew where she was going and would climb mountains without complaining to get there.

Similar to YSL's Y, but lighter, and maybe sweeter. It's a beautiful, tender chypre floral that's discontinued. OK. That means I shouldn't be reviewing it but I saw that it's already been reviewed. Shiseido: <i>Please</i> bring Inoui back! There are so many of us out there who want it!
