Summary: other aldehyde-tuberose-femme fatale perfumes are just childish games compared to this. I'm willing to bet that no mather how a woman looks like or what clothes she wears, if she passes by a man and she wears this perfume, the man WILL turn his head to see her better. Any man would. the tuberose is not the main note though. Still wonderful... the mix is bewitching. Aldehydes are not agressive.
Glorious white floral with so many interesting facets
24 March 2012
Summary: Jardins de Bagatelle appears to be the perfect white floral, and indeed it has been composed well. This fragrance opens with a rich, powdery bouquet of jasmine, tuberose, gardenia, white rose and lily of the valley. It's all innocent, creamy and beautiful. I was delighting in this fragrance for quite some time, appreciating the beauty of a well-done white floral but also knowing that I'd never wear it in my youthful years, due to its refined and classic appeal.
Excerpt: This is such an enchanting scent; a wonderful floral, not a heavy over-the-top smell; imagine walking past someone's flower bed and smelling the most captivating scent. My very first love used this perfume; and though we parted over 17 years ago, I still dream of this sensual scent. I have yet to meet or pass another woman that wears this fragrance. It defines the woman that wears it.
Excerpt: I am addicted to perfumes, have a whole collection and chose depending on occasions and mind. Its very difficult to find a strong long lasting but at the same time fresh, special and young perfume, this is one of them. I use it when I have a challenge and it seems to me that I feel stronger and it brings me good luck. When I smell my clothes the day after, I still can feel it and it is still lovely.
Summary: I used this fragrance years ago and loved it. I have not worn a fragrance since. A few days ago I "sampled" the frangrance in a department store and the scent brought back memories. It is expensive but I will buy it again. Some things are worth paying extra for and this is one of them.
