    It smells a lot like Caron or Ormonde Jayne fragrances to me - if that helps you at all. I don't have the notes handy but you can find them on the POL website I'm sure. It's kind of a classy sophisticated type of scent.

    It's a very rich, 'saturated' scent: it reminds me of a couple of other scents with strong rose notes, like Parfum Sacre and Nahema, yet it's definitely not a copy or imitation, either. *I still haven't decided if I'm comfortable wearing it, though: there aren't many scents with distinctive rose notes that I can handle. *But I definitely think the quality of the ingredients is apparent.

    Sounds lovely! From the site, it seems to be:

    Top notes: Muguet, Lavender, Bergamot, Geranium, Iris Absolute
    Heart: Rose Otto, Rose Absolute, Bois de Rose, Jasmine Absolute, Ylang-Ylang, Canaga Oil
    Base: Vetiver Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Pure Vanilla Absolute.

    Can't wait to hear other reactions!

    I'm not much of a rose person, either. Love Parfum Sacré (but I have to be on the mood for it) and can't stand Nahéma... we'll see.

    I'm very curious about this anyway!

    Got it this morning! [smiley=smiley.gif]

    The top notes are an attack of floral notes (meaning instant headache for me [smiley=sad.gif]) but then they mellow down, at least a bit. Will wait for the drydown for the "final" verdict but I guess I can already safely say that this is not my kind of scent at all. Way too floral to my taste.

    Just received mine. I was so excited I could hardly get the box open!

    First spray I get the Caron connection,straight away I thought of Caron's Rose. Now I am getting spicy a little like Tigress,which I wore as a teenager in the seventies.

    OH I like this one so far!!

    OK, the final drydown is quite nice: vetiver & vanilla, but I'm afraid I don't want to go through those top notes again. [smiley=sad.gif]

    I'm just not inspired to try this one right now. Maybe later. It's been overhyped, I think its name is goofy, and I'm not impressed by it's creator. Just doesn't sound like a Fufu hit. Maybe somebody should slap me upside the haid for being such a drudge. [smiley=lolk.gif]
