This was a semi blind memory purchase. I remember having a sample of this from back in 2002 when it first came out. Somehow this Spring it was really on my mind, and finally I found a bottle today at Kohl’s which I could not resist. So my memory must be quite a fragile thing after all- I would be a great perfume designer myself if it truly smelled how I thought I recalled it. In reality it smells wonderful, but not as I imagined alas! It’s a vintage now classic white floral perfume that was a bridal perfume back then. Now it’s discontinued but you can still find it in some stores and online for relatively low price. It did remind me of 5th Avenue perfume, but this is so much better. It doesn’t have the bitterness of 5th Avenue and lasts so much longer. I would not say it has strong projection either. I can’t say it’s appropriately bridal to my mind. It does not feel very romantic to me, instead it’s a very classy everyday scent appropriate for work and meetings with the in laws. It’s on the conservative side, but it’s still very soft and pretty. I mainly smell a mixture of lily of the valley and white lilies with a bit of sandalwood. It’s a very blended vintage smell, not at all a modern vanilla plus jasmine and florals deal. If you’re not into vintage classics, then don’t blind buy this one. Because it doesn’t have that modern sweetness of vanilla, it has an almost masculine vibe. Some expensive hotel soaps smell like this a bit. I am still testing it, so we’ll see what my final take might be. In the end, I decided to let go of it because it just ended up smelling very soapy clean and a not a touch of sweetness or lightness was present. It didn’t seem to work for me now for whatever reason, but mainly because I need more lightheartedness in my life now. If you need something not sweet and with a bit more seriousness, then go for it.
