Alfred Sung the original scent was an absolute favorite of mine in my late teens - a cool and original white floral, very unique at the time.
I looked forward to forever, and found it to be so utterly........ ordinary.
nothing wrong, mind you, a perfectly pleasant and forgettable scent for a soap or a fabric refresher, or... ... what was I talking about again?
Oh, yes, Alfred Sung Forever. Kinda forgot.
Just another sweet floral. I expected more.
A mixture of "Three Flower" pomade, orange oil, and lightly scented Raid. Your better off buying dollar-store perfume.
Found a sample vial of "Forever" in my Jewelry box. Amazing what you find when you look.
The opening smells crisp. tart and very green - so the color of the juice is appropriate - with an earthy spicyness in it. I can a lot of florals, a faint bit of plum and don't know what "tayberry" is, but I'm going to assume it's the tarty thing I'm smelling - unless that the mixture of sandalwood and muget. I'm going to also assume that "damask" rose means "rose-scented linens" or something like that, because it's not a pure rose - the scent is a lot "fresher" and reminds of a clean house. The Freesia scent is very very strong, and I've never been much of a freesia fan - so unless it fades into the other scents, that could kill it for me.
About 20 minutes in I can smell the perfume mellowing - the freesia isn't as strong but I've decided that the bitterness must be coming in part from the muget - and I don't like it much.
I'm giving this a "neutral" because the scent is pretty but it's too bitter/tart/sour for me but I'm going to attribute that to chemistry and taste. Fans of Freesia and Narcissus should definitely give it a whirl.
This is a lovely light floral, spring or summer scent. Great for when you don't want to offend or stand out too much or when it's way too humid for a stronger frag. On my skin, I can definitely smell the freesia, narcisse and rose; the sandalwood, muget and amber are very faint, even at the beginning. Lasting power is at about 6 hours as can be expected for a typical EDT. I toss my bottle into my purse, for refreshing later. The price is not bad, since you can find this at some discount stores for under $20, per 1.7oz bottle.
I bought this right away when I sniffed it in a Macy's many moons ago, during my second ever visit to NYC. It is fresh, sparkling, effervescent, soapy, and romantic with a delicious soft, powdery musk drydown - definitely feminine but different from the Eau de Britneys and Escada limited editions saturating the market. I see it as primarily a summer scent, to be worn with a short flirty skirt or dress. Quite underrated, I think!
