Reviews of Fête

Barbara Herman correctly describes this as a "fruity animalic chypre." Bringing together the sweetness of plum and peach and balancing it with the animalic trio of civet, cumin and leather, this becomes a come hither, but no further, scent that is both sophisticated and naughty at the same time, giving off sweetness, but promising a meeting in the hayfield later.

Top notes: Caraway, Plum, Peach, Bergamot, Rosewood, Cumin
Heart notes: Lilac, Orris, Jasmine, Ylang
Base notes: Sandalwood, Benzoin, Vanilla, Oakmoss, Civet, Leather

This is a unique and lovely scent. The bottle is a gorgeous and delicate tower. A great shame that something this fine is discontinued.

This is similar to vintage Femme Rochas (not a new one), I agree with Brielle87, but even more similar to first Azzaro fragrance from 1975.
Femme Rochas is much sweeter than Fete. Also, Fete has a specific note, something like *detergent* (I don`t know how else to define it, it is not a soapy note like in Ivoire for example) that you can also find in Azzaro and original Rive Gauche.
Retro scent, very beautiful, ladylike, and not bad lasting power for an EdT.

In the most simlple of terms; this is coming together of Femme and Mitsouko, with a touch of Parure. It is such a lush and elegant fragrance mere words could not do it justice. Only one word comes to mind while wearing this "sublime".
It is such a shame it has been discontinued for so many years, it should really be the standard of an elegant classic scent.
