Summary: It took a while for this to grow on me. It wasn't at all what I expected after reading the fragrance description or the reviews. I don't get any real hints of vanilla from this scent. However, it is a nice, soft, comforting perfume. It is more of a wintery perfume for me. It reminds me a being warm and cozy under a blanket on a cold wintery day!! It is powdery and a little spicy to me.
Summary: Cinema eau de parfum is a lighthearted citrus vanilla-almond perfume. Clean, clear, translucent, and very slightly bitter from the yellow florals, but in the end, the amber benzoin base notes dominate with the almond blossom, leaving the wearer cocooned in a warm, sweet cloud. It feels like you are softly drenched in a feathery golden mist. It is surprisingly versatile and long-lasting, though after the first five minutes, I can not smell it on anymore.
Summary: When the nights grow long and cold, I always look for a nice scent to lighten up my mood. Cinema is one of those scents. It smells gorgeous mixed with the cold air when its honeyed floral notes are balanced by the chilly weather outside. Cinema is smooth and comforting but it is not a scent that I just want to cuddle with while reading a nice book on a stormy night.
Summary: If you are expecting something thrilling or theatrical-- cinematic in a word, you will be disappointed. Cinema is a mild blend of mimosa on a vanilla amber base with a touch of spice. Cozy, quiet, and easy to wear, this fragrance seems more suited to every day life than glamorous movie premieres.
Summary: My first sniff of this perfume was at a duty free store at the airport; it was recommended to me because of my weakness for sweet almond scents. However, I was turned off by the orange in the upper registers of the formula. Years later, I decided to give Cinema another try. This time, I would let my sample linger on my skin until dry down. I am glad I did because it was only then when my nose discerned the sweet, vanilla warmth that emerges in the middle notes.
Summary: Cinema was under my radar for a long time as I was hunting only ''stand-out'' perfumes. But then again comes a time when you can appreciate simplicity and want a soft, cozy mist around you that won't go through many stages towards the drydown. And Cinema is a darn good one. Not a femme fatale, but certainly has a distinct warm and inviting presence. You get a harmonious mix of fresh clementine, delicate almond blossom on a gentle vanilla /benzoin/ amber base.
Summary: Great original product at a very competitive price. However in the shop it is labeled as Cineama by YSL and Donna Karan for some reason. It is the original Yves Saint Laurent product! Great DEAL!
