Smells exactly like Calvon Klein, Obsession. I don't detect any of the gourmand, chcolate notes of which other reviewers wrote. No Citrus orange, either. This was a gift from my stepmother-in-law....

My default setting is jeans T shirt and sneakers but my taste in perfume runs to elegant and mature. Frankly I don't want to smell like bubblegum or cotton candy (the latent wannabe Parisienne in...

Ahhhh, Paris!! My husband took me in 2007, and we stopped at the Duty Free shop in our terminal at Charles de Gaulle airport while waiting for our flight home. This perfume was his last-minute...

I bought this thinking I had found the Shangri La of perfumes, a warm, musky amber-ey mystery...I used up my generous decant from Norddstrom's before I could say boo. I'm a little torn on this...

Oriental fougere that is just too complexly fussy on me. Strong, old fashioned powdery amber layered with a million other notes comes out smelling ostentatiously expensive and proud on me. There's...

I've been toying with the idea of getting Eau des Merveilles for a while, but it really never felt like "me." Elixir is the answer. Not too gourmand, but just enough to keep it young. Overall, this...

Ever since Eau des Merveilles came out, I have had a soft spot for it. Purchase was only thwarted by the fact I was feeling sensitive to the word ‘whimsical’, used so ardently in Hermes’...

I find the word 'elixir' utterly misleading here. The word connotes exoticism to me, warmth, intimacy; whereas the Elixir de merveilles reminds me of a salty chocolate biscuit that I once happened...

I'm still trying to decide on this. My friend wears it and it smells great on her. When I first sprayed it on at Sephora, it smelled like bug repellant. As is warmed to my skin, however, it turned...
