Too Much has strong Almond /Woodsy notes in the base and is sweeter and stronger than the original-- If you don't like almondy tones and fruit, don't go for it. However, my daughter loves it and loves the incredible bottle. so from her, a thumbs up.
I wore Champs Elysées, the original, about 10 years ago as one of my weekly rotation scents; this was back in the day when I owned only about 10 bottles of perfume. But I have to say that I've never received that many complements on any of my fragrances except maybe Samsara and Sun by Jil Sander at the time. Champs Elysées is so beautiful and passionate... I wore it for many years, then when 'Too Much Champs Elysées' came out I got a bottle of it instead of the original when I ran out, and for some reason the complements ceased to roll in. Even though I thought that Too Much was ‘identical’ to my original, (what did I know back then LOL), there was something missing and little by little, I almost forgot about my Champs Elysées original altogether. I also stopped wearing Too Much as well. It sort of got left behind. A little while ago I found the almost full bottle of Too Much and I remembered how much I loved and enjoyed the original Champs Elysées. Since then I’ve repurchased the original and I will not look back. I guess that Too Much just didn't work for me.
I bought a bottle of Too Much several years ago at Marshall's. I suppose it bombed sales-wise, ergo the bargain bin. I like it. Too Much is very similar to the first Champs Elysees (which I've also worn and liked) but it's different in that it's more effervescent, and to my nose it isn't greener but rather fruitier (tart) than CE. It's sunnier. It lasts a long time on me, too.
I purchased a gift set of this for a song untested. Imagine a green Champs Elysees and/or Guerlain's Secret Intention. Worth a try, but not near as good as the original.
