UBER SWEET BABY POWDER. Nothing exotic here. Wanted to love this...sounds like it should be a fresh tropical floral with spice and sandalwood base. I don't get any of that...just sickeningly...

I took a gamble on this based on positive reviews, and even made sure I purchased the original 1996 Parfums International version in the frosted (not clear) bottle. The gamble paid off! This is a...

Black Pearls is my guilty pleasure. Straight up. I'm usually a fan of far more expensive perfumes and very rarely give "cheapys" a chance, let alone a spot in my collection! That said, Black Pearls...

This is perfume with a capital P!!! I find it difficult to describe except to say that this is the bomb on me. A warm powdery oriental on a base of gardenia and musk which dries down to a musky,...

Several years ago I wore this all the time but when my husband and I separated a couple years ago I could only bring some of my perfumes so, since this bottle was almost empty, I left it. I bought...

Sorry to bring this one down - I am a fan of most Elizabeth Taylor fragrances but this one is a real let down. Smells overly sickeningly sweet in the bottle like bitter almonds with canned fruit...

Made the mistake of purchasing a bottle, unaware that its previous frosted-glass version was far superior to the reformulation. <br> Which is a shame, as I can tell that this scent was fabulous...

The top notes reminds me very much of Avon's discontinued Rare Rubies with the warm spices and sandalwood and the dry down reminds me of Avon's discontinued Rare Emeralds with the floral base....
