Summary: A spontaneous two word description for this would be: lemon-y vanilla. It is in fact clementine that bursts as a top note just before the vanilla takes center stage. Yes, it is one of those really sweet fragrances. It is nicely done and lifts your spirits but remains really linear and is not particularly exciting. It is not worth the price or the prestigious YSL logo IMO, so I would not buy a full bottle ( I have enjoyed my sample , tho).
Summary: I am a person who loves spicy scents and this is rather good though there is a slight sweetness to it that puts me off. The bottle on the other hand is one of my all time favourites so I'll cherish it even when I've used up the last drops of Cinéma.
Summary: The nose behind this is Jacques Cavallier, who also created one of my favourite fragrances:JPG Classique. Like Classique, Cinema has a full bodied feeling that oozes comfort. Even the citrusy opening is kind of oriental and the mix of vanilla with almond blossom creates a feeling of warm, roast almonds on my skin. However, the overall effect is rather predictable and easily forgettable on me. Still, it is a safe comfort scent.
Summary: Cinema on me is sweet, powdery, fairly pleasant, and inoffensive.It makes me think of trying to drink fresh orange juice whilst my mouth is full of dolly mixture sweets,(not that I've tried.) After a while it fades to a powdery blossom scent with the smell of dolly mixture sweets and candied orange peel lingering in the distance. I quite like it but I don't love it, which I was hoping I would from the reviews I've read.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Great Smell, Long-Lasting, Sexy
Summary: Received a very generous sample for this perfume from the YSL counter in summer and it did nothing to make me want to buy the full size. This is an average scent which is not unlike the thousands of perfumes already on the market.
