The dry fruity floral is an interesting bird. It allows for a nuance in composition that is hard to convey in a syrupy fruity floral. Patouís Enjoy has a lovely crystal upper register, and Gucci II edp includes a dry, leafy/herbal aspect that gives it a beautifully full feeling within a narrow tonal range. Pan Ame's violet pear is interesting but not quite as balanced as the other two. I imagine Pan Ame (2001) was intended to be a ladylike or grown-up version of the kiddy fruity florals that were rampant at the time, and in this respect it succeeds.
The upshot, unintentional unless Jean-Michel Duriez is a secret satirist, is that the flowers smell plastic and the fruit has an acetone bite. This is the spiritual ancestor of …tat Libreís Vierges et Torerosí vinyl floral. Wear it as you would V et T and itís surprisingly rewarding.
Love this sweet,soft, powdery, fluffy and light scent!
This sophisticated, feminine scent works on me all year round. The pear dominates. I love it.
I bought a 50ml tester bottle for £2.99
Floral Fruity-Musky Linden blossom, violet leaves, pear, peach sandalwood & musk very fruit salad and the pear note is very strong I cant detect musk and unfortunatly it dosent last very long on me just over an hr or so but still very nice and summery and for the price I cant complain
