too faint for words

Fifi, fragrancex.com

  • Excerpt: After applying to my wrists and neck, there is little scent remaining. The compact is lovely, but product is very hard and does not transfer to pulse points.
  • Pros: Great Smell, Love this scent
  • Cons: Doesn't Hold, Does not last long enough, Pricey / Poor Value, Too Weak

Different scent

  • Summary: It did not smell like the original scent that I have used for 30 years. I was very disappointed and will not purchase it again on Amazon at the lower price.

  • Summary: Last night, I was watching actress Andie MacDowell (who is now 55 years old) on Hallmark Channel's "Cedar Cove" series -- and I wondered what perfume Andie wears (I've always LOVED her, and I still watch my Groundhog Day DVD every February) -- so I googled "Andie MacDowell perfume", and I found this article from Allure.com -- dated 3/28/13 -- so it's very recent.

  • Summary: To start off on a good note, as recomended by a fellow MUAer, I contacted the company direct to request a sample. It came really quickly in the mail, with a nice letter and was no cost to me. BUT. The fragrance itself, at least to me was a disappointment. I was curious about Fracas because it has been around for a while, and I like florals. More powdery than floral. Very "old lady" smelling on me with my body chemestry.

  • Summary: I was given a decant of this by a friend of mine who has been telling me for years that I must, I simply MUST try Fracas. I have been pointing out to her for years that white florals rarely work on me and tuberose doesn't work on me at all. Nonetheless, I tried it 6 times when she gave me the decant just to shut her up. Unfortunately on me Fracas smells basically like a cheap strong synthetic jasmine fragrance oil, no warmth, no sublety, just flat, strong and boring.

I'm supposed to love this, but I don't.

nyet555, Ebay
4 March 2011
  • Summary: Very, very sweet. Probably the reason I don't like it, being completely sold on chypres. It received a five star rating in Luca Turin's Perfumes guide. That book has been almost unerringly correct. I really liked Bandit from Piguet, so I thought I would like this as well. Relatively expensive (but isn't Estee such a bargain - I'm spoiled.) It doesn't smell like a fracas to me; it smells like being trapped in a bakery full of cream filled donuts.

  • Summary: I was expecting a lot more of this vintage perfume. Unlike Chanel #5, also a vintage scent, Fracas comes off as cheap, cloying, and plastic-y. It lasts a pretty long time, and the 1 oz. perfume spray I bought was $45, so it's not that expensive either if you just want to experiment. I know it's been around for a long time (the 1940s), but it doesn't smell 'rich old lady,' 'expensive,' or 'luxurious' to me (terms often used to describe it).

  • Summary: I thought I'd try this since I found it on Ebay for half price- $45. I must admit that I don't particularly like it and neither does my DH. I'll probably pass it on to a co-worker since I did receive a few compliments from her the handful of times that I wore it. This might be nice on a slightly more mature woman who gravitates toward sharp floral. On me, it didn't smell sexy or alluring at all, instead it was kind of uninteresting.
