Summary: The First Parfum Spray that was available several years ago at Nordstrom & Neiman Marcus lasted much longer on me than this does. Don't think it is the same as the 'original'... Sorry but will not order it again.
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: The seller sent me a different eaux de toilette, I bought First by Van Cleef & Arpels 3.3 oz and he sent me instead "Homme " 2,2 oz. . I stayed very frustrated because It's supposed to be my mother 's 94 anniversary. I've got the refund but that didn't repair at all mine and my mother frustration.
I was expecting a pretty fragrance due to the high reviews

Summary: Item arrived timely. I was expecting a pretty fragrance due to the high reviews; however, I found this to be very strong and musky. I normally wear philosophy amazing grace. This sent is very strong and overpowering. I would recommend that a person who is interested in wasting their money on this item smell it first. There is a reason I could not find this in stores.
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: 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".
