I tested it yesterday and was in tumult - to buy or not to buy. Fragile is a democratic tuberose for those who can't bear it's bloody animalic creamy fragrance(as in Caron's tuberose for instance). It is not a soliflore surely. It is just a polite idea of tuberose. It won't irritate people arround you. I did not buy it. May be because I wanna smell like true tuberose - non-wearbale and unbearable.

Hideous and confused tuberose in the same vein as Amarige. I haven't actually encountered this on anyone in person, thank God.

I’m struck not only by the polar oppositeness of the two different presentations of jasmine, but also by the alliterative similarity of the names: Fracas => Fragile. Fragile is a softer, more modern Fracas. Personally, I’m such a fan of Fracas that I find this a a bit of a bore, but it is very good interpretation and it is nicely put together. Its modernness has a definite appeal and is creatively impressive. If you want TUBEROSE, get Fracas… if you want tuberose petite with a more modern bite, Fragile is certainly more than good enough to merit investigation.

Tacky packaging, great fragrance!

My girlfriend has this and the Eau de Toilette version.

I prefer this one: can detect everything in this perfume - although I am usually more turned by things like Opium and Chanel No. 5, I like this one very much.

Feminine, makes a statement, and doesn't go overboard with the florals. Does it quite nicely.

Unlike certain other fragrances, the Tuberose in this is not too sweet, but somewhat natural smelling.

The main reason why I like this concentration more, is because the EdT reminds me a little of Paris by YSL.
Still, very nice, makes a statement, romantic.

The scent will not give you an "earthquick" orgasm but in my opinion this the most BEAUTIFULL and ORIGINAL presentation ever for a perfume.

I am normally agaisnt all beautifull bottle with "bad" scent but the perfume itself is good here.

The "snow flake souvenir glass" style is replaced with a women and gold leaves - it is just the most original presentation and yes it is just taking a simple idea and develop it.

Well done to the designer
