I love Etro scents. So, I bought Heliotrope without even sniffing it. That was a mistake. I suppose every fragrance house has to make at least one thing I will detest, and this is the one for Etro. It begins WAY TOO STRONG. It made me sick. Two hours later, it had settled enough for me to appreciate some subtlety. I don't have the patience or the stomach to try it again, so I gave it away. Better luck next time, Etro. I still love you.
