I recall smelling this everywhere when I was a teen, people bathed it in. Back then as much as I loved it, I'd never have bought it because everyone else was wearing it.
I recently bought a bottle after rediscovering a sample and still love this scent. Fresh, green floral, a hint of citrus and spice, a bit aquatic and ethereal.
I can't comment on any of the flankers, but the original is beautiful.
Eternity has always reminded me of something a girl next door type would wear. Spicy carnation in a bouquet of lovely florals, a splash of citruses that help freshen up the green notes. Lily of the valley is bright and clean, and is a great complement to the soft and creamy carnation. Very pleasant - it's a great, clean '90s staple fragrance.
My husband surprised me with this for no reason. He probably found a good deal on ebay. My sister loved this when it first came out. I like it and I have received compliments. Its so floral and light I can go a little crazy when I spray it on.
Genre: Floral Oriental
Eternity is a fruity rose scent that feels like Sophia Grojsman’s attempt at a brighter, sweeter, and less complicated riff on the fruity-green rose chypre style she’d established with Calyx and Paris, and would explore further in Trésor, 100% Love, Yvresse, and Kashâya. While I’m not overly fond of any of Grojsman’s essays on this theme, Eternity represents the weakest entry I have yet encountered.
In this case, the whole concoction just feels cheap. The fruit accord is crude, harsh and artificial, without the plush lactonic accents that give scents like Yvresse and Kashâya their enveloping sense of indulgent luxury. What finally lets Eternity down though is the quality of its rose, which is too shrill, bitter, and soapy to tolerate over several hours of wear. I also find the rose excruciatingly loud, especially in the eau de parfum concentration. My takeaway impression is cheap, crude, and nasty.
It's good but doesn't last long and very subtle.. good for romantic wear for a young minded girl. It's not amazing but I like and the girls like they described it as Romantic, Flowerly, Manly
yeah I don't get how flowers and manly work together but those are what I've been told. There is better out there though and that's why I won't be purchasing it
