    Calyx by Prescriptives

    Green, grassy, but not so fresh, rather sultry, "thick", "waxy" - it possess the same waxiness as Eden Cacharel, smells "80-ties". I dont detect grapefruits. Calyx is single note of Spathiphyllum (something like red apple + wet grass + Juicy Fruits bubble gum).

    Dalimix Gold by Salvador Dali

    Red roses + green pepper. For true roselovers only (+- akin to Very Irresistible). Nothing in common with Dalimix (no melons, no pears, no mignonettes, no masculine, cologney accents). Strong smell of roses, sultry, slightly fruity, succulent- it is not a sweet maralade.

    Notes: galbanum, lily, mint, rose, jasmine, cassis, pepper, ambrette, patchouli, orris.

    Rumeur (new) by Lanvin

    Dirty, sour, cheesy socks + nail remover + cyanoacrylate in Super Glue. "Screaming", synthetical. Run-a-mile type of scent.

    VV by Roberto Verino

    VV by Roberto Verino resembles Esencia De Duende by J. del Pozo, but it is more agreeable. Cucumbers + green apple + cinnamon/ginger. Fresh, cologne-y, a little masculine.

    Poême by Lancôme

    Single note of persian clover (Trifolium resupinatum) - lovely, sweet, honey-ish, mesmerizing fragrance, somewhat powdery; you can almost feel like a bee.

    Daliflor by Salvador Dali

    Sweet. EDT smells like grape juice + flowers of vine + vanilla oil + soap. Its drydown is very interesting on my skin - a "buttery", soft, velvety, honey-ish sandalwood. Nice, innocent, clean and voluptuous (yes!).

    Kenzo Amour by Kenzo

    Does Asia smell like a pudding? I don't think so. Shallow.

    SummerbyKenzo by Kenzo

    A nice, "yellow" scent. Summer smells like a tanning oil. Mimosa + violets (a little hint) + soap. There is something plastic, synthetic in it (could it be indole?). I like it.

    Jungle L'Éléphant by Kenzo

    A little synthetic scent of evening stock (Mathiola) + cinnamon. Strong, longlasting, schizophrenic.

    Kenzo by Kenzo

    Kenzo by Kenzo is similar to Eden Cacharel. It is rather sultry, tuberose scent, very "eighties". Mandarine + tuberose + scent of an adhesive tape (something plastic). Sweeter, much more "naive" than Eden, Eden is more watery, green, depressive, sad and anxious.

    Daylight by Gabriela Sabatini

    A nice, very "yellow", bright, soft scent. Unripe apricots (really, green small fruits) + violets + vanilla. It is similar to Kenzo Summer (which was created 3 years after Daylight), but Summer is much more soapy.

    Rubylips by Salvador Dali

    Red currants + wild strawberries + honey + "dusty" and smokey patchouli. It is a little "shampooy" scent. I don't know. Average, poor lasting power.

    Dalimania by Salvador Dali

    Very sweet, "sticky". Coconut fragrance oil + "dusty" note (sandalwood and patchouli). Smells like chocolate wrapping papers.

    Dalissime by Salvador Dali

    Notte Romana by Borsari

    It is a very modern scent despite it was created in 1939; light, informal, fresh, transparent, a "blue" scent. White and pink lilies + spices (anise, rosemary) + clover. Similar to L'Eau par Kenzo or the "blue sweater" by S.Rykiel.

    Visit for Women by Azzaro

    Akin to Jeans by Trussardi, but much stronger. Resinous, "red", feminine. Cherry + resin.

    Blue by Ralph Lauren

    Hmm. I don't know. Cold, weird, fresh. Clover + black locust + water mint + stable (!). I like the flowers, but this animal hint just damages the composition.

    Romance by Ralph Lauren

    I like it. Flowery, elegant, soapy, metallic. Lychee scented tea + roses + "salty" note of marigold + smell of an adhesive tape (the same chypre note as in Libertine by V.Westwood).

    Lolita Lempicka by Lolita Lempicka

    Another Angel wanna-be. Cherry&Anise scented inhaler stick + vanilla. Horrible.

    Biagiotti Due Donna by Laura Biagiotti

    Average. Roses + peony + brioche/cheese-cake (vanilla and yeast). The same "yeasty", weird note as in Narciso Roderiguez for Her.

    Narciso Rodriguez for Her by Narciso Rodriguez

    Not my cup of tea. It smells like grape hyacinths (Muscari) + a big brioche (yeast!). It is not sexy at all, it's "yeasty".
