Summary: Screaming scrubber. Eau de furniture polish. An industrial accident in a plastics factory. Sure-fire migraine trigger. Should be marketed as an emetic by a major drug company. Possibly the worst perfume ever made, and certainly the biggest misnomer. Pass the sick bag.
Excerpt: Not impressed with this company nor their perfume. I have used Poeme for many years & one squirt lasts all day, even in the evening people asked what I was wearing. One bought from this company, I have had to spray 3 times a day because the smell just fades away after 20 mins. or so. Company told me to return it but it is not cost effective to return from London to the USA, but valuable lesson learnt, things are not cheap without good reason.
Summary: Evidently I'm in the minority on this one, but this is one of the worst scents I've tried. I sprayed it once on my hand at the makeup counter of a department store and it overpowered me instantly. I went straight to headache mode, which I still can't rid of. I washed my hands, no, I scrubbed my hands and couldn't get rid of it. I resorted to washing my hands with vinegar AND I CAN STILL SMELL IT.
Summary: I really don't like this. It has such a beautiful name, that you really wish it was good. This is everything that I dislike in a fragrance. I am not going to be harsh, because I fully understand that when it comes to scents, what smells heavenly on someone, can be trully yuk on someone else. On me, it smells like ink. Parker ink what comes in small,squarish bottles. With apologies to all who love it, I find it trully awful.
Summary: When I first sniffed it, I thought I fall in love. The name sounds very romantic and I convinced myself that it smelled so sweet and dreamy at that time. Then I deciced to buy full bottle and I sprayed this before going to work. It started to make me nauseous. I felt very ill and had to go back home right away. I was absent that day. Hoped my ex-boss didn't know this ;-) Don't touch this if you don't like strong oriental floral.
Summary: The worst of Lancome's fragrances. This is a synthetic smelling, heavy, run of the mill fruity floral--certainly no heir apparent to Tresor, a much more agreeable Lancome effort that continues to be a top seller. The next time you're in a department store, try a top quality fragrance such as one from Guerlain or Caron--then spritz yourself with Poeme on the other wrist.
Summary: My fragrance. Every "fad"-type fragrance -- you know, the ones that smell great in the bottle and last long enough on your wrist to make you buy it -- disappears on me after about 30 minutes. Either that, or it lingers longer than 30 minutes, then turns into a smell closely related to flyspray. This perfume stays with me all day and smells beautiful. Every man I know has said, "Wow, what is that scent?" They love it.
Summary: I had this bought for me when I was about 16 years old. At the time I didn't know too much about perfumes but the scent appealed to me at that age. Well I'm now 23 and there's still 95% of this left in the bottle. It is very strong and honestly smells a bit cheap and tacky, hence why I barely used it!
