Summary: Love, love , LOVE this! I ordered it as eau de toilette, not sure what to expect. Gorgeous fragrance; clean, fresh, absolutely lovely. I got so many compliments I was astounded, because it's a very classy, subtle fragrance. Men especially seem to love it; quite a surprise, because it's such a soft, fresh feminine scent, and very understated. I am so taken with it I ordered the full bottle eau de parfum. Annick Goutal hit it out of the park with this one!
Summary: First of all I would like to review the body wash of this fragrance. I purchased the body wash at least 5yr ago, expensive however very worth it. I stopped using it bec I developed very itchy skin, not from the fragrance but from other things I was also using while showering. So one day looking through the cabinet this is what I found at the back of it and pulled it out and somehow the fragrance became more deep and not to say it was powdery but a deep vanilla peachy...
Summary: I loved the first bottle of EDP I purchased, the second bottle just didn't seem to meet the standards of the first. I have no clue why. That said, I don't care for the EDT version of this as on me the dry down is watery an weak. I only wear EDP of any fragrance therefore in stronger concentration this is much nicer. For nearly a decade this has been one of my summer scents in heavy rotation, that time is over. Why?
Summary: The opening really smells like pear. I'm actually surprised by this because most things I've tried which were supposed to smell like pear usually just smell like "indistinct fruity note" to me. This actually smelled like a pear fruit. After a few minutes, I get almost a floral note from this. It reminds me of lilly of the valley. There is no lilly of the valley listed so I suppose this may actually be the rose and grass notes.
Summary: This is a very feminine perfume that is good for day or night. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the seller that I got it from sent me the set with the perfume roll-on bottle broken and all the contents had spilled out and dried up. They were willing to send me a replacement but it was a hassle especially around the holidays.
Excerpt: This is a really beautiful daytime fragrance; clean, fresh and quite unique. <br />I find it starts with a true pear scent and dries down to a subtle, clean fragrance. <br />On a hot summers day it brings a feeling of coolness to the surrounding air- the freshness you feel when standing in the rain on a hot, humid day.<br />It is very unique and is unlike anything i have used before.<br />I love oriental fragrance notes, but they are too heavy for work.
