Excerpt: This is really a difficult opinion to type. While I can really see that it would be considered a fragrance of luxury, sort of a classic and timeless (to be very fair), it seems just not quite my type of fragrance. It goes on a little to strong for my liking, and it seems heavy. But waiting it out, it does dry down a little better. I do have a cold and maybe that is not helping. I am on the middle of the fence with this fragrance.
Excerpt: I totally agrees with the rest of the reviews I've read. EAU DE PARFUM doesn't smell the same, doesn't last, and you don't get comments about how good you smell anymore. My wife has been wearing this parfum for a long time and I know the smell. I fell in love with her when I first met her with this parfum on. One night it was cold so I put my jacket on her. She went home with my jacket and return it to me next day with this parfum on my jacket.
Summary: While the Red Door cologne's fragrance was lighter and more refreshing, the Red Door Eau De Parfum is too heavy and to me seems stale - not fresh like the cologne. I prefer something lighter, so won't buy this again.
