This is amazingly beautiful. It manages to be cool and warm both; very unusual scent on Me. I love the passion flower and vanilla, it's sparkly and gorgeous and lasts all day. I have over 100 fragrances and this is in my top five! I don't find it very sweet at all, nor synthetic in some "ooh, that's not natural" way. It's perfume! Of course it's synthetic. And …Read more

I have a love/hate thing going on with Jimmy Chop EDP....I adore the opening, so bright and sparkling and delicious. And the dry down is also beautiful, almost mouth-watering. But it's over so soon! On my skin it fades to a very soft skin scent within an hour. So of course I reapply! I think I'm just totally addicted to the opening. Oh well, can always buy more, but I do wish perfumes …Read more

My nose must be broken. I don't understand. I get no flowers, no powder, no vanilla, nothing white at all....I get hours and hours and hours of straight frankincense and smoke. I feel like everyone is smelling something entirely different and I want to smell what they smell!! This is vintage EDT; could that be why? Maybe I am only getting the base notes?
Well, whatever is wrong I have …

I don't know why I never smelled this in the 80's but bought this blind today on a rather expensive whim....what a wonderful whim! I adore this! I bought the reformulated ETD and since I never smelled the vintage I love this, no sad "it's not the same!" to deal with.
The opening hits you with blast of aldehydes but then the lovely flowers introduce themselves and …

This is a review for Boucheron Jaipur EDP, not EDT as I only have the EDP. This is really an extremely beautiful and comforting scent. You can buy vintage on EBay. I agree with the review I read that compared it to a French apricot tart....but it's not a sugary apricot, not a little girl's fruity scent at all. It's Boucheron! Chic, elegant, but warm and inviting. I love it, and …Read more

I don't know all the notes involved in this incredible perfume, but I do know that it is the best smelling scent I have ever experienced. And that includes my beloved Shalimar! I didn't get anything green or sharp in this, just a creamy, almost buttery sweetness that was all-enveloping. I love the projection and longevity (New EDO) and have never been complimented so much by so many on …Read more

This is not a fruity perfume whatsoever. I own the old formula in pure parfum and the new in eau de parfum. While I love them both, the new formulation is much more to my liking. It's still green, but smoother and less bitter than the old. The longevity (for both) is about 8 hours on my skin, and the sillage is moderate enough that I can wear to work and not force my fragrance on others. But …Read more
