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.
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 was looking for something fresh, clean and not overpowering for everyday "at work" use. This is perfect and the price is great for the amount you get. My very favorite is Nautica's My Voyage, But this is a good one in that family of scents for a lot less money. I would buy again.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Great Smell, Great Value, Not Overpowering
Summary: I used to wear this back when it first came out (when I only would have one or two scents at a time). Sunflowers actually don't have a scent (their seeds do if roasted, but that is nothing like this perfume), but the perfume captures their cheerful color quite nicely. I'm surprised to see so many notes in it - to me, it has always smelled like ripe Anjou pears with just a hint of something floral.
