    It is very difficult to resist going ahead and purchasing a bottle like this based upon the design rather than the scent itself. Lolita Lempicka has a way of transporting me to fairy-land by simply holding these exquisite bottles in the palm of my hand.

    Fleur Defendue, as translated in english to Forbidden Flower, is a not so distant sister of the original Lolita Lempicka. While this fragrance is not so gourmand in the sense that Lolita Lempicka EDP was, the additives of cherry, absinthe and almond create a scent that is more rich than foody.

    Opening with a very distinctive lotion smell, Fleur Defendue has only a suble hint of cherry and peony. It tends to be a rather clean scent, like something you'd imagine wearing in the warmer months or straight after a shower.

    It takes quite a while for this fragrance to develop further, however when it does, the cherry becomes much more prominent and the almond makes an interesting entrance. The heart takes on a powdery-like quality that is very different from the lotion smell we were introduced to before-hand.

    While I was not overly impressed by Fleur Defendue the first time I wore it, I found that it has a tendency to grow on you, and by the end of my sample, I was seriously considering buying myself a full bottle.

    Fleur Defendue sits in the middle of being generic and unique. It is neither one, yet it would probably have many people asking what it is you're wearing. The lasting power is so-so. It's wearing relatively well six hours after application, however from there on it tends to soften considerably.

    I was content with my sample of this, however I don't seem to be missing it so much now that it's all gone. The bottle design is the only thing that warrants a purchase for me.

    The Lempicka scents are known for their sweetness as well as their very interesting bottles.

    That is where my interest in Fleur Defendue ends. Granted, Fleur Defendue (Forbidden Flower) IS indeed an enjoyable scent. Very light fruity floral, with a subtle blend of woody-esque notes. This is very pleasant but not anything that made me think, "Gotta buy a backup of this."

    I see this as something to have in one's wardrobe as a novelty for the gorgeous bottle, which is shaped like an Art Nouveau apple. As for the scent and who will buy this, I see this on the dresser of a young woman or teen among the four other scents she might have.

    It is a very light scent and will need many sprays for adequate sillage and longevity.

    And as for the atomiser, the sprayer mechanism is rather awkward to use because the apple stem is very small and hard to depress. At least the "L" and "L, Coral Flower" sprayers are broad enough to depress, even if the bottles themselves are unusual to grip. (I prefer the Coral Flower to Forbidden Flower.)

    All in all, though not superlative, I give it a thumbs-up rating of the three ratings. In a five star rating system, however, I would give four out of five.

    Another highly addictive, sensual, and, yet somehow, demure creation of the wonderful Annick Menardo. The dark cherry note coupled with pink peonies on top of a bed of sugar sweetened almonds is rather intriguing. Admittedly, the fragrance is very strong at first, but, used moderately, it becomes more of a skin scent with an attitude as it dries down - lightly sweet, yet dark and inviting. Well worth having!

    An overwhelmingly sweet and strong frag that some might find seductive but I just found nauseating. It burnt my nose and gave me a headache.

    Fleur Defendue is a titan among the contestants vying for the title of 'favorite feminine perfume.' Upon application it is an immediate olfactory assault of artemisian licorice (Absinthe flower? Seriously?), sweet cherry and vanillic almond, along with some soft florals that, while they are not lilac, end up smelling quite like it anyway. The result is a monstrously powerful and unrelentingly sweet seductive dessert cocktail which performs constantly like it's turned up to eleven. An absolute masterpiece and probably the sexiest gourmand I've encountered.

    Packaging:Yellowy-green apple bottle with silver leaf details and a apple stem spray mechanisim ,lavender color box.
    Juice:soft sweet reminds me of floral baby powder much like Bulgari Blu Notte but slightly warmer smelling -less iris perhaps?some apple blossom?Also sort of a scent of rain will come soon and you are walking in a parking lot heading to the car.Ozone?
    I haven't researched the notes to this but I like it and as it is often availiable at discounters(often a sign of something's discontinuation or reformulation) I plan to backstock a bottle or so(or ?) .
    A nice calm easy-going fragrance. Highly recomend.
    This seems to be generally pleaseing/inoffensive to those near me .I gave a (new backup) to my Grandmother for her birthday .She liked it as did everyone at the table.This is very likely to be a multi-bottle backed-up scent.
