Summary: I've been buying first for many years - was very disappointed w/this purchase the perfume was old. Dark in color and it didn't smell like the first I'm use to. It was a Christmas present for my mother - wouldn't purchase for you again.
Summary: This is NOT FIRST...although that's what the box says. I couldn't get my money back fast enough. I have no idea what chemicals they put in there, but I've using this cologne for over ten years and this is not it. I knew I could get a friend to purchas it for me when she went on her cruises to the islands but I needed a refill now. I could have gone to their store in the city (NYC) but I took the easy way out and ordered it on line. This is fake stuff.
Summary: NEW FORMULA in '04; that weird stale or buttery smell isn't in the classic/original version. I have multiple editions (cream, powder, edt, lotion, showel gel, etc, etc) in both the classic (black & gold pkg) and the new peeuw in the pretty white/black boxes. At first I thought I had a spoiled batch; took me forever to track down that VC&A have deliberately destroyed my favorite perfume. Now I look for gently used classic items on ebay.
Summary: I'm certain the perfume I received was not the real thing. The bottle didn't look quite right, and the perfume was not the same scent as my existing bottle of First. Too good to be true at this price, I guess, but don't buy this if you actually want "First".
Summary: J'ai acheté ce parfum pour offrir à ma femme et elle n'a pas du tout aimé. Quelle déception quand elle en a mis sur elle! L"odeur est si forte qu'elle en est écœurante. Me voila obligé de racheter un autre parfum mais cette fois de son choix.
Summary: Bonjour, Je suis déçue par cette EDT. L'odeur ne reste pas sur ma peau, ni même sur les lainages. Il va me servir, comme VANDERBILT à parfumer pour un court instant mes chambres. Merci pour le remboursement. Bonne journée.
