The vivid and fresh lemon and bergamot opening,very well sone, gives way to a lovely rose that sees hints of geranium added at times. The drydown is a matter of the rose, which is halfway between dark and light, and a very discreet and natural sandalwood note. I do not get a separate base note phase.

The sillage is moderate, the projection good, and the longevity is excellent: nine hours. A nice spring scent, with the ingredents being of great natural quality. 3.25/5

Superb floral/herbal chypre - very old school style, as purplebird7 notes. Reminds me very much of Scherrer - the initial scent.

This is the type of chypre I go head over heels for. Reminiscent of Cabochard, Shocking, Ecusson, Crepe de Chine, Quadrille, Tailspin, Aphrodisia, Surrender - the list goes on and on and this is a welcome addition to it.

Barbara Herman found it to be a herby, green chypre with a rose heart and a lemony mossy animalic base. The ingredients are few but of the highest quality:

Top notes: Galbanum, Lemon, Bergamot
Middle notes: Cypress, Rose de Mai, Bulgarian Rose, Lilac
Base notes: Mysore Sandalwood, Labdanum, Costus

Avoid the vile reformulation, which Turin rightly describes as melon woody, a melon/acquatic metal/amber "cold" scent. Two stars rightly given.

The vintage is a real treasure

Blessed to find a small mini bottle of the parfum. Very green chypre. Screeches in the very beginning, but settles to a bright sparkling floral chypre, something between Miss Dior and YSL Y, but Vivara is much more herbaceous in the drydown compared to the warm leathery notes in Miss Dior and the warm musky chypre of Y.

This is a lovely perfume! A herby, slightly powdery and slightly sweet (honied?) green chypre. Blooms deliciously on the skin! I have a little vintage mini and am now madly in search of an FB. Very pretty indeed! New iteration bears no resemblance, whatsoever!

I'm still undecided on this one too. I thought I'd love it based on the description, but once I smelled the lotion, I wasn't too impressed. Especially considering the price, I was expecting "wow". But it seems pretty non-descript to me. However, the bottle is gorgeous!!!

Gorgeous chypre! Herbal, yet powdery soft. Really reminds me quite alot of vintage Miss Dior (sans the leather effect), although Vivara is kinder and gentler. It has nothing in common with the "new" Vivara. You bet I'll be keeping an eye out for a vintage bottle of this!
