I tried this because -- hold onto your hat -- the inimitable Jean Claude Ellena is the nose behind this one. This is wasted on teenies and tweenies, and needs to be out of this silly bottle. This belongs in Lalique and should be worn by the big girls. Not in the least foody. More woody and incensy.

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

Lovely texture, colors and finish. I apply this with a kabuki brush for the sheerest of applications. Wonderful. It makes my skin look golden-luminous, without any shimmer or shine. Goes on like buttery suede.

This looks like a deep burgundy color, but FFFs and PPPs -- do not despair. It is the prefect summer flush blush. When first applied, you will react with horror over how red your cheeks look. But after my pressed powder foundation, and a dusting of bronzer, it looked great. So much better than those icky-sticky gel sticks. This dried to a matter finish within moments of application.

Wow! They have captured the smell of a Christmas tree farm -- fir, balsam, and Colorado blue spruce. Smells like my front yard in Maine. Caution: if you have sensitive skin, this may irritate. The scent is that strong -- and it lingers. This is uncompromisingly green, folks. If you do not like green fragrances, go for something else.

The perfume of understated elegance, refinement, and superb taste. The florals are mossy and dry and bring to mind silk flowers. This is a "blue", powdery fragrance, and yet the floral notes ring true. There is something vintage about it, as it is wildly feminine and ladylike. I imagine swishing silk skirts, parasols, and buttoned gloves. It evokes L'Heure Bleu for me, although …Read more

I can certainly understand the appeal of this spicy, woody, exotic musk -- on someone else. On me, it smells rather similar to Tabu, and I actually prefer Tabu.

First, I must thank the wonderful Thalia for RAOKing me a sample of this beauty. Cassie is one of those fragrances meant to be loved by only a few -- and those few find it magnificent. Cassie will intimidate those looking for sweetness and refinement; a least upon initial application. There is a definite animalic undercurrent similar to The Different Company's Rose Poivree. While RP is an …Read more

The notes: apricot, osmanthus, amber, woods, and spices.

The initial burst is quite fresh and fruity, and you can really smell the apricot. The next phase is a somewhat spicy, confusing melange of cream sherry, patchouli, and nutmeg. The fruity floral accord rebounds, before settling into a powdery sweetness, not unlike Tresor.
