I can't tell you how upset I am that I bought a large bottle of this and had it shipped from France. It might last an hour if I spray my clothes but on my skin, it is almost gone before it dries. It is a breathtaking scent but extremely short lived. I am guessing that the regular Bigarade is even shorter lived than the concentree. I have nothing against scents that are so fragile but why charge so much for a few moments of pleasure, especially when there are other wonderful scents that last much longer and are infinately cheaper?
