Summary: It's springtime and I am at my mother's. She has been cutting flowers from her garden and they have been in a closed up room overnight. I walk in the next morning. The air is dripping, cloyed, thick with the smell of her cut daffodils, freesias, more daffodils, narcissus, jasmine, hyacinth, flowering cherry, honeysuckle from the fence. A few green sprays and blossom from the mandarine tree or orange or lemon tree.
Summary: I finally bought it, lured by beautiful advertisements. It has a vintage feel because it smells full and rich, like a classy old lady. A golden honey scent with a little of linden, and after that very little change, it just stays on and does not turn nasty. It seems to be meant for special occasions and should be sprayed with a light hand. Most suitable for Fall and Winter - to go with heavier fashions - then it makes sense. The longevity is incredible.
Summary: I have worn Poeme for about 5 years and always get compliments on it. I knew what I was getting when I bid on the product. The perfume is one of my favorites along with Beautiful from Este Lauder. The packaging makes it mark in classy.
