Thank you. I try to give at least a series of four or five testings before I feel that I grasp the fragrance enough to express an opinion of it. I also knew from experience that Annick Goutal's fragrances, especially, don't reveal their secrets at first spray.
Agree with hedonist, your reviews are enlightening. Re: AG Songes, I, too have found it true, that one can't judge a fragrance on a single application. It takes time for a nose t get acquainted.
