Summary: Ha, ha milktoast24 has a good description, "resinous, boozy, honeyed pipe tobacco". The top notes I get at first are Cherry and Amaretto Liqueurs (boozy), wafts of pipe tobacco and hints of leather. Love! It dries down quickly to a middle of powdery vanilla, sugared almond and tobacco, with light woods and hints of cherries.
Summary: I was very lucky to get a large decant of this DC'ed scent. As an almond junkie, i was eager to try this much-lauded fragrance for almond lovers. i was expecting bitter almond, (that heavenly marzipan/almond extract/white almond), but disappointingly, i got a resinous, boozy, honeyed pipe tobacco scent that eerily evoked both Kilian Back to Black and Escada Collection -- only a hint of floral-y almond BLOSSOM (not even bitter almond).
Summary: One of my favorites. But if the woodiness were removed, I can't imagine loving it the way I do. Almonds, cherries, and vanilla with some sweet, light floral notes - all this would be pretty forgettable without the underlying support of the gorgeous wood. As it is, this combination of notes is extremely well-blended and harmonious. Sweet, yet earthy. Smooth, yet slightly tart. It is girlish and womanly at the same time. Thanks to the wood.
Summary: I cannot understand why this fabulous fragrance was discontinued, when there are so many yukky new fragrances on the market! Gloria was very popular with so many ladies and their partners too! Bring her back please!!!!
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Great Value, Long-Lasting, Not Overpowering, Sensual, Sexy
Summary: Does anyone know a perfume similiar to Gloria at all ? Its my best friends birthday in June and she is inlove with this perfume! Reason being, her mother (who has sadly passed away) use to wear it all the time and now my best friends loves the perfume because it reminds her of her mother. I would really love to make her happy if i could get my hands on Gloria or something similiar!!! Any suggestions ladies ?
Summary: Y y y y y y y Did you take it off the market it was the best fragrance in the world, nd ppl always asked me about it nd I jst used my last bit nd nw I can't even import it from another country that's disappointing, plEASE bring it BACK we are begging you
Summary: Soft pretty floral with an ambe-rish, almond base, almost powder, but in a nice face-powder way. Sweet with tart notes and woody notes. Lovely and interesting. The almond comes up stronger as it dries, in a light velvety base with those sweet tart flowers on top, just lovely. Almost like a pretty, well-behaved cousin to Equitrius or Putain des Palaces, both of which I love. Add this to the Love list. Beautiful. Thanks, Lisa, for letting me try this gorgeous scent!
Summary: Please Cacharel, bring Gloria back! It's a beautiful scent - vanilla with gorgeous amaretto note that gives this perfume wow effect. It could be stronger and more longlasting though:) Love it and I miss it... I hope they'll bring it back...
Summary: This was my signature scent from the time it was released until it was discontinued. I have never loved a perfume more. It is THE saddest thing that they no longer make this. Love love love it. I have never found a perfume that smells similar either. Then today I went to the pharmacy and as I normally do I spray on a scent I haven't tried before to see if I like it... And Jil by Jil Sander smells so much like Gloria. I can't stop sniffing myself.
