From the notes listed here you may think that this fragrance is quite simple but you would be wrong, i'm sure that are many undercover notes because this composition smells so complex.
The most interesting thing that i have noticed about this scent, so far, is that it actually gets stronger or rather deeper as time passes peeking about 7 hrs after it is first applied; then it gradually subsides.
I definitely have to spend some more time with this fragrance maybe then it will reveal itself to me but so far i'm loving what i'm smelling.
I have an older friend and this scent really suits her. It is a strong scent like Shalimar and it is the only perfume she wears that I like on her. I don't think it is suited to the eau de toilette and that is the only version that sell on line right now. I would consider this for my mother and I think it would make any older woman ( 60s on up) feel beautiful. It would be wasted on the young.
An Oriental in the line of Shalimar, with its lemon and vanilla, plus a particularly bitter wood or leather note. Not terribly original, but it has a nice, strong, bold presence. Still, I would just as soon get Shalimar in the pure parfum concentration.
Open-minded men would NEVER wear this. It's a terrific scent; however, Fragonard's own website markets this delightful fragrance towards women only, as they should.
Delightfull just like an Eden if you love orientals. Also wearable by open-minded men... in the EDT version of course...
