Summary: Back in the day (circa 1996 or so) I kinda liked this synthetic-sunny-floral as an inexpensive pick me up. Now I have found things I like better - but this is still a decent summer scent. Sweet & Light and easy for a young gal to wear.
Summary: A pretty good perfume. I thought it smelled a little bit like some random grandma named Gertrude sitting in a rocking chair. But i asked a bunch of guys opinions on it and they apparently like rocking chair sitting, floral dress wearing, grandmas named Gertrude..
Summary: I'm looking for a replacement scent for a long time favorite, New West. This isn't it. It has some of the same notes, but does not last and I started to get a rash at application sites. I'm still looking.
Summary: I wondered why I loved this fragrance once upon a time. Then as I studied fragrance notes and how they affected me I realized that Sunflowers by Elizabeth Arden contains notes of Osmanthus which is extremely good aromatherputic mood lifter. Such a pretty fragrance for a new Mom; or someone who is depressed; as it's soft, fresh and bright. Osmanthus is a calming fragrance; great for depression or just a mild case of the baby blues.
Summary: This isn't a bad fragrance, I just don't care for it personally. Reviewers who like Sunflowers seem to feel that it is sunny and warm, and I just don't get that vibe from it at all. To me, it smells (as some other reviewers have said) more like the ocean than a field of flowers, and this particular rendition of that scent tends to make me feel melancholy rather than cheerful. Having said that, after giving this to my mom, I find that it smells nice on her.
