Excerpt: On the plus side I can at least be grateful that I did not spend my own money on this scent as it was given to me as a gift by a relative, the downside is that it was a wasted gift as I do not like this fragrance.
Pros: Bottle looks nice
Cons: Not a nice smell and does not last which is actually a plus
Excerpt: After loving the Rouge perfume Christian Lacroix developed for Avon, I jumped at a bargain bottle of C'est La Fete when I saw it on special offer in Boots. I used the tester and liked the fruity fragrance, but made the classic mistake of buying the perfume based on the top notes alone and didn't...
Pros: Cheap to buy now !
Cons: Smells rushed, the tropical perfume is very synthetic, poor lifespan (advantage?)
Excerpt: My new bottle of perfum arrived today from Amazon and it cost me £22.99 which is an average price to pay for a good decent bottle of parfum which has a good brand name. It was Christian Lacroix: C'est la Fete Patchouli, Eau de Parfum and it came in the most delightful packaging and bottle.
Excerpt: Launched: 2008 Group: Floral Oriental INTRODUCTION Since Tumulte and Absynthe I have a bit of a fetish for Christian Lacroix going on so I bought C’est La Fête Patchouli on recommendation from fellow members on online fragrance community Fragrantica. Oh and I love patchouli too.
Pros: Unusual, intense, dark patchouli with the lovely heart accord of Joop Homme
Cons: Uninteresting drydown and somewhat poor staying power
Excerpt: I first received this perfume about two years ago from a friend. Before that I had never heard of it, as most of the perfumes in my collection as by celebrities. As soon as I smelt it I fell in love with it and now I ask for a bottle of this for my birthday and Christmas each year!
