This is my favourite perfume. I was given some during a very stressful period in my life, and the effect was like being enveloped in a soft, scented hug by the most glamorous woman in the world.

I loved the original plant extracts version, but can't stand the new cottonseed version. There is a very strong smell of detergent (Persil I think!) which produces a catch in my throat. It feels very soft on application but leaves my skin feeling dry and tight. The original felt soft and restorative. I will be ditching this now, even though it is expensive and hardly-used.
