    No. 89 by Floris

    On the boards it seems No.89 is sometimes compared to C&S no.88. I think 89 is much closer to DíOrsayís Etiquette Bleue than it is to no.88. Itís got the same light, white, herbal-floral topnotes that have an uplifting sort of quality. Itís not quite as uplifting as the DíOrsay scent is though, and the heavier basenotes further drag this one down. Finally, there is a mustiness in here akin to the mustiness of Florisí Elite, which makes the scent smell old or dated. This mustiness, combined with the floral notes, reminds me of a funeral homeÖnot exactly a positive image! I will say it smells better on my shirt, where it retains more of that Etiquette Bleue sparkle. But why not just get the much better Etiquette Bleue?
