Summary: I first bought Initial for my wife on a vacation to France in 2000. She immediately fell in love with it and considered it her "signature" fragrance from then on. We introduced it to our daughter a year later. She loves it, too! Over the years, we've purchased lots and lots of Initial. As time goes by, though, Initial is more and more difficult to find and more and more expensive when I do find it.
Summary: Initial is the one fragrance that people, even strangers, will compliment me . It has warm vanilla overtones without being sweet. I can only describe it as a casual, yet sophisticated, fragrance. I was so disappointed to learn that Boucheron has discontinued Initial. I've stocked up, thanks to Amazon. Even though I fear that the unopened bottles might have lost some of the divine scent, I'm willing to take that chance.
Summary: Simply delicious. It is a delicious perfume, very complete, well mixed and full of depth and character. A classic type of perfume for a woman with class. Very good for women. Boucheron is a high quality perfume this time bought the mini size (0.17 oz / 0.5 ml) to see how it was and is excellent fragrance
Summary: I have worn Boucheron Initial for years on and off. This is the only perfume of mine that got constant compliments, I loved it. After they stopped selling it at Macy's I was heartbroken. I finally tried it online and I think the bottle I received was old, you just don't know how long they've been sitting in a warehouse. The scent was not good, so unfortunately I had to pitch it. If I find it in the store again, I will buy it....it's a lovely scent.
Summary: Should you need to rush from your office to an evening engagement this mini size is great to have in your desk or purse for a quick refreshing. Long recognized as makers of elegrant, luxurious jewelry Boucheron began in 1830 when the first store opened in Paris. It was not until 1988 that the first Boucheron fragrance was launched. One of their latest fragrances is Boucheron Initial which was introduced just four years ago.
Excerpt: My old boyfriend fell back in love with me after having dinner after 10 years. I wouldn't tell him the name of the fragrance so he went to every high-end store in the city and tried perfumes at every perfume counter until he finally found it. He bought it for [$](only the Parfum was available) and presented it to me. I almost fell over when I opened it and knew he had found it. He is still in love with me although I have moved on.
