Infusions of a myriad flowers all rolled into a bottle and shaken up with a fruity accent - melon, I think .Magnolia,rose,lilac,jasmine,iris, jonquil,amber,musk are the notes but I swear to you that melon is in this scent. The amber isl ight and airy ,the musk is subtle and chic. It's modern and rich in its own way . This is not a loud floral fragrance but one that weaves a little mystery when you wear it.
Lasting power is quite good and there is decent sillage for a perfume that is so subtle in character. This is my first bottle of 2000 Fleurs but it won't be my last.
A "heavy" floral scent (go figure), as opposed to something lighter such as Spring Flower. Has, or creates the effect of, that "sticky-sweet lacquer/shellac/varnish/solvent" note that I mentioned with Tabarome Millesime but haven't quite figured out yet. Pleasant, and it lightens up a bit over time, just not my cup of tea.
I like this one on a female. Nice , everyday floral it might not be fancy but it is nice, classy and modern.

Rose, lilac, jasmine, magnolia, violet, iris...it's just too much for my nose! If a barrage of flowers is what I'm looking for, Beautiful (crafted by Sophia Grosjman for Estee Lauder) is far more rounded, balanced and wearable than this Creed bouquet ~ less expensive too! Not that this Creed is 'bad' ~ it's just got too many leading ladies in the mix, which happen to muddle the blend. Each flower is right in your face rather than one or two in the lead with others in the supporting backround. IMO this cheapens 2000 Fleurs into the "drugstore floral" category. There is a prominent green bite throughout, maybe from lily, but it's not enough to clarify the blend of notes. SilkandSteel gives an accurate perspective on this one.
I want to try the new 2000 Fleurs, but the "old" version is still lovely -- lots of violet and multiple other florals, all piled on what I consider to be the "Creed mint base." I like this a lot, but I want more depth here. Perhaps the revised version adds this? Opinions or testers, please.
