While Fragonard fragrances can sometimes be slightly bland and not too powerful, this one is quite lovely and, I find, unique: though it is totally floral and even girly, there is an almost peculiar 'dryness' about it that saves it from sickly floweriness. It lasts all day on me, too. To top it all, Fragonards are so reasonably priced! Too bad about the trip to France you need to finance to buy them...
EDIT: I'm sad. The 'dryness' I mentioned seems to be lacking/less strong in my new full-size bottle, and I'm getting so much violet I can hardly bear it. I love this perfume for what it means to me sentimentally, but I'm going to be wearing it less and less, I can tell. It's quite 'perfumey' too, strong and yes, a touch cloying. So sad! Maybe I liked it better because I was dabbing before, from my mini, and now I'm spraying... hard to test this hypothesis though, as my old mini's topnotes have gone and it's depositing mainly alcohol and old perfume-smell on my skin when I try to use it now...
