Reviews of Vocalise

Not-too-sweet strawberry jam and a rosy floral smell over a perfumey soapy background. It's very linear and doesn't change much, starting a bit loud and ending like a quiet version of itself.

It smells to me like something Estee Lauder or Lancome would have done in the 80's, that time where their perfumes still smelled "perfumey" and had an air of class to them, but without the formality and depth that they would have had if they had come out 10 years earlier, when they would have been supported by an aldehydic chypre structure. Though, on the flip side, they smell a million times better than the stupid fruit candy smells that took over 10 years later, so it's sort of a middle ground between great and terrible.

If that sounds like I'm unhappy with Vocalises, I'm really not. If I were a woman and I worked in an office somewhere, I'd seriously consider this as an everyday scent. Like Foetidus said, Vocalises is classy without being too dressed up, and youthful without smelling immature. Sometimes you just want to smell nice and like you know your way around a perfume counter without smelling like you're perfumed for a night at the opera in a ball gown or reeking of some smoky niche weirdness, and Vocalises gets this smart middle ground perfect.

Vocalise is quite a nice feminine fragrance—unassuming florals and solid fruit notes, but, as solid as the fruit accord is, it is not at all heady or aggressive. The accord is quite refined, possibly because the currents keep the fruitiness under control. It’s a pretty scent, feminine but not girly; comfortable, with a step toward elegance, without being stuffy or pretentious. It is not noticeably sweet to my nose, which alone separates it from the multitudes; it is a clean scent that is very enjoyable to be around in casual and professional environments. Linear, long lasting, and understated, Vocalise isn’t showy; it is tasteful and appropriate for quiet, perhaps introspective occasions—and also, I guess, for singing.

Fruity floral with winegum aspects. Nice if you like fruity florals and have the snobbery to go to niche for that.

Depending on how pretty a girl is, I'd hit Vocalises.

Vocalise is a nice fruity/floral fragrance by MPG. It’s a well blended; the fruit never really overpowers the floral notes and vice versa. With that being said, it’s a little watery and slightly timid. It doesn’t evolve much, and doesn’t really compare to most other fruity/floral fragrances in the MPG line.
