Summary: First by VCA is a very rich and opulent fragrance created in the mid-1970s. The florals are blended wonderfully, but First is also an aldehyde. That aldehyde aspect is very prominent in the opening, and it's not to my liking.
Summary: Personally, I didn't like the product, but it was a gift to my sister, and she really loved it. She has been using this product for more than 5 years. It arrived earlier than scheduled, in perfect conditions.
