Reviews of 5th Avenue

5th Avenue is elegant and feminine. I detect a lot of lilac plus lily-of-the-valley. The rest is a sophisticated mix of floral notes. The sillage and longevity are moderate making it a very flexible fragrance. It can be worn anytime and anyplace. A feminine classic.

I had chosen this one based on the fruit and spice notes, but all I got was a very synthetic generic floral. I'm not able to pick out individual notes at all.

To me, 5th Avenue falls into the "white noise" category. It's vaguely pretty and very light with little sillage or staying power on my skin.

It seems like a good inoffensive office scent.

This is from a male perspective. I like this fragrance very much indeed, though I may be biased as this reminds me of two very important women in my life. When my mother passed in 2011 (at the comparatively young age of 50) I had to go through her things and found over 200 bottles of perfume. This was among them, standing tall, and I picked up the bottle and spritzed it onto my forearm. Its a little rough when it first goes on, but within minutes I felt as though she was there.

It's a wonderful aroma. Florals mingling with lightweight citrus notes in the beginning and moving to the spicy, oriental heart notes that really conjure up an evening at the height of summer. They're not heavy, they float in a sort of dance with the floral notes. For me it took a while for the musky base to come through. This is also a light white musk, flanked by sandalwood and rich vanilla.

By pure chance I discovered that my ex-girlfriend also wore 5th Avenue and yet I hadn't associated it with my mother at all. Which makes me think that this perfume is not at all age-dependent; just a marvellous perfume that might well be worn in more than one season. Very elegant and demure, and yet fresh and flowery. A winner in my book.

Salutation.

What a beautiful scent!5th Avenue is a perfect blend of floral sweetness,not overpowering,but just the perfect perfume to make you feel really lovely.this is one of the perfumes that you love to spray a few sprays in the air,walk into it and let the lovely aroma fall over you,to carry it with you all day. Rafreshing,Floral, Delicate,Clean,Inoffensive,Classic, Elegant and Ultra Feminine.

5th Avenue is classified as a vibrant flowery fragrance.the very essence of white flowers especially lily-of-the-valley that mixed with magnolia,lilac and bergamot in the top notes,while the feminine jasmine and tuberose of the core alongside the vanilla,iris and amber base,the atmosphere instantly becomes dreamy upon inhaling their emanations.

The smell is so beautiful and fresh like you are walking among fresh and beutiful flower garden in Spring.just inhale deeply as you wash up,you'll love it.it will please everyones appetite.perfect for women who wants to smell fresh whole day.A great everyday scent especially for the Office but subtle enough as when you go on a date as it makes you feel beautiful and feminine.if you like white florals you will fall in love with this one.Absolutely clean.

Sillage?Decent.

Longevity?+4 hours on my skin.

Starts flowery but a complicated mix which I can't just make out. Definitely soft, no spices there ... linear, although I would have loved for this particular perfume to evolve given its' start. What sticks to your skin is what I've written above blended with whiffs of musk and sandalwood. Somehow, at the end, it gives me a feeling of blandness; if only they could have handled these interesting juices in a more creative way it might have come out as brilliant stuff. And yes, this one shouts "chemical" kind of overtly but that is expected given the price. True, some perfumes slightly cheaper than this one don't, but that's another story!

Subtle rose

Bergamot, magnolia, lilac and a potpourri of roses develop into scent that eventually has a sandalwood base. Vanilla is dominant in the second half but never cloying. Quite a subtle and balanced scent with about two hours of longevity on my skin.
