This is a frustrating one for me, Fleurine. I love Japanese Honeysuckle (the yellow ones; there are other varieties that don't have the same fragrance, as I discovered when we planted one
) but a realistic honeysuckle perfume has proved elusive for me.
There are the old Avon ones and the sweet, discontinued B&BW ones, there's Chevrefeuille
by AG (doesn't smell of the yellow blossoms to me, maybe of another variety?) and Caprifoglio
by SMN (more neroli than anything else). There's Demeter Honeysuckle
which I found dirty smelling and not floral enough, not true to the flower. But some like it.
The closest I've come is a body mist and lotion by Ann Taylor, discontinued, called Orange Nectar Honeysuckle
. But the honeysuckle note is fleeting. The note lasts longer in the lotion than in the spray, but not by much.
Tania Sanchez wrote in Perfumes: The Guide
that the honeysuckle note is unstable (I believe it was in the review for Chevrefeuille). Maybe that is the problem, then.
