Excerpt: The nose behind this fragrance is Edmond Roundnitska. The fragrance was told to capture a floral scent which paints a picture of a beautiful garden. The top notes are bergamot, lily of the valley and ylang ylang. The middle notes are composed of jasmine, amaryllis and boronia. Then the base notes are sandalwood and civet. The perfume is basically floral. The appearance was dainty leaving you to like it.
Summary: I love this perfume. My two other favourites are Dior's Forever and Ever and Chloe by Chloe edp. I smell lily of the valley and jasmine. I find it is not very long lasting on my skin, hence I gave it four rather than five. I always feel like a princess wearing it.
Summary: This long forgotten fragrance I use for more than 30 years ! You can't buy it in the department store easy, so it is nice I can buy it on internet . Lilly of Valley in different names and companies still not the same.
Summary: I was looking for a LOTV for the spring and where to go but the Dior counter, especially in a country that offers very limited options? To my surprise Diorissimo opened with a strong blast of heavy, sulphuric, green floral that evoked a huge plant with big, fleshy leaves, crushed stems and some sambac gassiness. It was as loud as Michael Kors's Michael on me. Obviously not what I had in my mind when I thought about those cute flowers and graceful Diorissimo.
Summary: If there is one scent which I wish I had not "waited" to try until too late, it is this one. By "too late" I mean after reformulation. Stuck as I was in old thought molds such as "I don't like white florals", "I don't wear Dior fragrances", that's what I got for my idiotic narrow-mindedness. Because, as it turns out, I *love* white florals, and Dior made some amazing fragrances. Notice past tense.
Summary: This was my mother's fragrance - she loved it and wore it much of the time when I growing up. Back then, it came in a bottle with a "houndstooth" black and white pattern around the bottom and in a similarly patterned outer box. While I love the scent, it has such strong associations with my mom that I've never actually worn it but I can recall the scent as clearly as if she were alive and in the room with me right now.
Summary: Very light flowery smell. It's been in production for more than 20 years and I have been using it since the beginning. Can only be ordered online now since no store holds it anymore. Very glad I found it on Saks.
Summary: I use this as my Sunday fragrance when going to church. It is very fresh and clean - it really does smell like lily-of-the-valley! I do not like to experience too much of it, so I use two sprays on my wrists only - it is enough and lasts the whole day. This is not my favorite or the most unique fragrance in my collection, but it is perfect for pious thoughts and mixes well with incense.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Great Smell, Not Overpowering
