I have to say this is one of my all-time favourite fragrances. Such a shame it is discontinued as I don't like any other Gucci fragrances. I have the black bottle eau de parfum which is very rare. I am very much into rose based scents, but this is not your typical floral. In fact I would not even class this as a floral but rather a chypre. It is quite potent, dark and viciously powerful. It is sad there are not many frangrances around like this one these days.
I had this fragrance forced on me not long after it came out. I was in a cigar lounge and a woman in her 40s or 50s had just bought a bottle and was raving about it and was spraying it everywhere insisted my friend and I try it. Well I don't know if it was the cigar I was smoking that contributed but one whiff of the "fragrance", and I was instantly nauseas and literally ran to the ladies to puke my guts up. I felt like I had been hit by a bus, like I had the worst hangover. I had a head-ache for the rest of the night. It was the most vile, pungent smelling offensive odour! I can't believe how much she liked it!!! I have never been so repulsed by a fragrance.
Tried this for the first time today and is it very sweet, smells like MOR marshmallow. The honeysuckle lingers which is not a bad thing. The bottle is beautiful. Overall quite pleasant.
I own this, I admired it for ages before I bought it. It is a very strong but sweet floral, I can smell the Jasmine. After a while it can become quite heady and too strong if you apply too much. I have had several compliments from this including from a workmate who squealed with excitement when the gift box arrived at my work. The bottle is very pretty apart from when the gold logo fell off on opening the box!
I own this and I wear it more often than Viva La Juicy which I also own. It is a fruity floral and it is subtly sweet yet has a certain zing to it. I can smell the lily in it. It is a cool almost green floral with a pretty bottle.
