LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!!! I am a huge fan of gourmand fragrances and this is one of my faves. It doesn't last very long but it smells exactly like it should. Yummy, buttery bananas, yummm!!!
I sampled this the other day...name says it all here!!
Couldn't believe how accurate this smelled. Gives new meaning to the term 'reality perfume', ha! Smells like strong, sweet, caramelized banana.
Delicious scent...however, I don't see how this is unisex. It's entirely too sweet and fruity. But then I also don't share the perspective of wanting to smell exactly like a dessert! ;)
The "Flambee" part of this is rather heavy and comes on too strong for me; I like the Banana part though. The bakery part (rum & caramel?) are a little cloying. However, I still give it a thumbs up because I haven't found any better banana scents yet.
There are several things going on in Banana Flambée: a banana note (somewhat artificial), a caramel note, an orange note, and arum note. Together they form a yummy gourmand accord that is enjoyable at first, but it tends to cloy very quickly. It’s a decent representation of banana flambée, but I don’t think much of it as a personal fragrance – too foody and cloying. It has strong sillage for a short time, but then loses its strength, but for a Demeter it has good longevity.
