From looking at the bottle, I thought this would be ultra sweet and fruity and flowery – gaudy and cheap – that’s what the bottle screamed. Okay, the opening IS quite fruity errrm …extremely fruity. But it gradually morphs to a very nicely done white floral which has just a touch of fruit – not so much as to sweeten the mixture too much. If it would stay like this, it would be an excellent fragrance; unfortunately these heart notes don’t last long enough. The excellent white florals all too soon become a sweet, neutrally textured blah floral, which completely lacks oomph of any sort. It is a non synthetic floral / fruit accord but it’s too sweet and not edgy enough for my tastes. The drydown, too is a nicely done sandalwood and vanilla – nicely done but ordinary and could use more longevity. C’est la Fête! is an okay fragrance. It retains an acceptable grasp on all the basics, but, for a 2007 scent, it seems to be already a bit old fashioned and ... generic.
