I really like Velvet Flowers as a lush, bright, floral-fruit oriental - the type I normally would wear in the summer. The smell is rich and gourmand without being too sweet. The lasting power is excellent and the sillage medium. I think it would be easy to overdose this one. I can't decide, however, if it's full-bottle worthy, because it smells very much like 2007 Organza Jasmine Harvest by Givenchy (which I already have), except with better quality ingredients and better blended. It also smells like the dry-down stage of Bagdley Mischka's original fruit oriental after the wow-y sweet fruit opening wears off. Still a nice sunny oriental.
