    I wonder if the Play Red is different than the normal Play?

    I haven't been that impressed when CdG releases a whole series all at once (the Energy C series sort of sucked), but of course I will test these when they're released.

    I really like CdG perfumes but CAN'T STAND the Play (clothing) line. (Though I own the 'Play' perfume...) The hearts with eyes are simply ludicrous.

    Red, Green, Black will be way better without the terrible hearts on!

    I'm not sure, I think a cartoon heart with eyes is a refreshing break from most of the tripe in stores :')
    Not that I'd spend £300 odd quid for a plain jumper with a little heart on it but still....

    I've to be honest Laph, this time I'm seriously scared. As much as I love most of the CDG's, from the few informations we currently have, this project sounds a bit redundant. They'll probably be micro-variations on a main theme, which IMO it's a bit pointless...I really hope I'm wrong but, in the end, I'll be more than satisfied if at least one of them will smell nice...(hopefully Black)

    Also, I've to agree that the Heart logo is turning to be off-putting (if not directly cheap). It's becoming just like one of those annoying monograms that brands such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton and the likes, are putting every-$£*#§%ç@-where. Possibly one of the worst designs conceived by this brand.

    Well I guess I'm hoping the series will have a good variation.

    Funny thing about the heart though - it doesn't really bother me. I just assumed it was just a "Play" on the Japanese love of cutesy characters that you see in their marketing. I guess the silly heart also feels a bit tongue-in-cheek too rather than the "classy" (puke) logo's of the other brands which don't seem to carry any sense of humour.

    Ablemoschus sounds like ambrette. Nanah sounds like spearmint.

    This fragrance sounds yummy.

    They sound great but I also know they're unlikely to smell much if anything like I'd imagine.

    Thanks for the info furrypine.

    The notes are all over the place. RED might be the sweet one, BLACK the smoky, peppery one, and GREEN...maybe minty-woody?
