    Open very carefully

    Firstly I had a generous helping: The opening blast us orange blossom, peach, honey and a rather mundane rose unite to form a lipsticky note - very sweet, crass, loud, shrill and garish. This blast lasts for several hours and reeks of artificiality. Later ylang-yang, orris and benzoin provide a bit of a counterpoint, and the end is the most attractive part, with musk merging with the now attenuated lipstick. Silage and projection are tremendous, and I cannot fault the splendid longevity of nine hours. Applying it more cautiously it inflicted less olfactory damage on my surroundings, but did not improve otherwise. Open very carefully.

    It served a purpose...and oh what a purpose it served!! Love it for what it represents...late 80's glamour!

    I was on an e-site where Red Door was listed as one of their top sellers, consistently apparently. I was given a small bottle when it was released and couldn't give it away fast enough. This was worse than fly spray to me. I cannot believe that the cornerstones of stunning perfumes are being restricted due to 'allergens' when Red Door can survive as a top seller. Oh well, one man's meat is another man's poison.

    Back in the early 1990s I wore this to death. I always got a lot of compliments on it. I feel this is better in cold weather.

    Unfortunately something has changed, the fragrance or me, I don't know. I bought a bottle out of pure nostalgia and it has an unusual cat pee note I don't remember before. I do wish the fragrance industry would stop with the reformulations.

    Very elegant scent - it reminds me of my mother, who always choose these very strong perfumes. I wouldn't wear it myself since it's very lady-like and very "perfumed". By this I mean that it's not very natural and soft.

    I was introduced to Red Door when I was 12 and in a teen modelling contest and they included a small sample in a gift bag of goodies. I find the fragrance is good if you don't really like intensely sweet floral notes. Instead Red Door possesses deeper resin as it's most memorable scent.

    I reintroduced my nose to Red Door around Christmas time a few years ago. Although I found it a little cloying on my sinuses.
