Summary: Thick, huge, sweet flowerbomb! I seem to get a peachy note too, or apricot (I can't tell those apart). The fruit is mostly directly from the bottle, on skin it's definitely flowers. To me the bergamot comes out after this burst when the sweetness vanishes - over the first ½ hour or so. Hereafter the benzion and especially neroli stand out. It turns sour-ish spicy. The civet is hardly detectable, but supports the other notes very well.
Summary: I got this one at a discounter for £10 so I can't really complain. it is d/c but still fairly easy to get hold of. it is a huge tuberose with animalic overtones. Contrasted with the Mamma of all tuberoses - Fracas- it does not come out well. It reminds me of the original Giorgio a lot. If however, like me you do not care for the buttery quality of Fracas, you could do a lot worse than this one for your tuberose fix.
Summary: My all time favorite scent, together with Kenzo's Jungle. Both are a little bit weird, strong scents, Blonde is more feminine than Jungle though. On me this smells mostly of tuberose, but you can definitely sense the animal scents of musk and civet underneath. All in all this a bold, feminine scent, with a weird twist. I suspect it takes a certain kind of personality to like something like this, I don't think that anyone who loves light florals etc. would love this.
Summary: This is a big tuberose, like Fracas, but lacking its creamy richness and depth. Somehow this one just screams "VULGAR" to me. Not well done. I agree: if Fracas is the Queen Bee of tuberose, Blonde is the drag queen.
Summary: Got it today from a very dear friend as a gift...first impression was a bit awkward considering the fact,I've been ''close-encountering'' tuberose in almost every perfume I liked so far... and this one instantly reminded me of Cartier's Panthere..yes, it is the fruity (ripe apricot) meets tuberose meets ylang-ylang scent. big and heavy 80-ties, sexy piece of art.
Summary: I bought this perfume years ago but I will never forget how disgusting it smelled...I seriously bought it because the bottle was beautiful and because it was called blonde...but when I got home and finally put it on I gagged...it smells like garbage....I'll never forgot how gross this perfume was...
