I live in a warm, humid climate, and this is one of my warm-weather go-to fragrances. For 8 months of the year I cannot bear to get bogged down with ambers and orris root; light, clean florals like this, Coach Freesia, and 360 actually work best. Admittedly, I'm not going to impress anyone wearing this fragrance, but then, neither will the perspiration dripping down my decollete'.
A very classic composition built on a dominant lily of the valley note enriched by tuberose and a very usual rose note. Well crafted, discreet and somehow elegant but absolutely anonimous.

Firstly, I'm no huge fan of Lily of the Valley soliflores. Now that's out of the way, I'm not loving this Floris rendition either. It reminds me of when I was a little girl, in the mid to late 1960's. There were these tiny dolls called "Lil Kiddles". A series of them came packaged inside cute plastic perfume bottle pods, and the dolls were flower scented. The one I had smelled just like Floris Lily of the Valley. For a 5 year olds' little toy doll, it was a fun scent. For a grown womans perfume, not so pleasant.
