    I've only smelled JdF, but the review I've just read of Kiss Me Tender speaks of aniseseed, jasmine and ylang-ylang, which are not present in JdF.
    JdF smells a bit like Play Doh! That was my first impression, anyway. As time has gone on, I don't have such a strong association withy Play Doh any more, and it makes me think of candied almonds more.

    Unfortunately, I have not smelled JdF. The notes of aniseed, jasmine, and ylang ylang 30roses was mentioning are pretty much in the background in Kmt. Kmt smells primarily almondy, like a marzipan confection with a touch of pink flowers.

    No, they don't smell anything alike.

    Edit: Some almond scents veer into cold weather cozy powdery territory. Kiss me Tender has a more floral aspect to it...its lightly sweetened good for summer, not loud or cloying if that makes sense.
