    ...

    I have been on the market for a good perfume since May. Having recently purchased seven legendary eau de toilettes for my wardrobe (Kouros, Yatagan, Pour Un Homme de Caron, Grey Flannel, Allure Homme, Coco, and Guerlain vetiver), I felt the only thing missing was a feminine floral, and had quite a lot of difficulty deciding which to get.
