      Sounds like an interesting fragrance. Also, enjoyed reading the information on the Crabtree & Evelyn site about the inspiration and journey of this scent. I didn't know that the Iris root must be harvested and aged to perfection, the aging process takes 3-6 years before the essential oil can be extracted and made into perfume. I look forward to trying this one.

      I tried this while out shopping the Saturday before LaborDay. I ended up covered with a lot of stuff that day but I remember this being 'pretty'. I can't speak on longevity or anything like that. I did get a sample vial to take home....hopefully I'll be able to better share my impression when I try it.

      I tried this on today at the C&E store-- sprayed once on back of forearm. Seven hours later is it's still there, so no longevity issues with this one.

      I rather like this, though not enough to actually buy it-- for some reason when I smelled it I immediately thought of the week I spent in Vancouver in 1986 visiting friends who took me to the Expo. The association is very strong-- hours later it still brings me back there.

      Another great little numbre from C&E - got the sample by post - by request from their website.
      I find this one Modern - Happy - Sparkling - Sunny - Fresh, with a great life one the skin.
      Women and young ladies will certainly love that one.
