I recently was given a small sample bottle of this perfume. It's an exact replica of the full sized version but it fits into the palm of my hand!
The little round glass bottle is a peachy red colour and is patterned with a ripple effect on one side. The top is a large plastic octagonal shape which catches the light on every side. You can see through the top to the bronze coloured pump action button. The top also has the initials E.L etched on in a fancy font. The bottle is printed very clearly with the name of the perfume in a white font on the front. This high quality design makes the perfume seem very exclusive.
I would describe the fragrance as being very flowery. It is a slightly old fashioned approach to floral perfume though and I think this would suit the taste of many older ladies. The perfume is warm and enveloping. It makes you think of bunches of flowers rather than a whole garden though! There is a rich, woody undertone which is my favourite note. Spiking through this are hints of rose petals and musk. The fragrance is cloudy, not sharp, and it seems to be there to comfort and to add a finishing touche rather than to make a statement.
The perfume doesn't seem to be very long lasting and as I wear the scent through the day my wrists seem to assume a fruitier smell, rather like lemonade. It loses any complexity that it originally has on first application. The perfume does seem to become faint after just an hour so I am always wanting to reapply it.
I think this is a rather nice perfume. It does remind me of other perfumes in the Estee Lauder range so I wouldn't say it was terribly original or unique. However it is ultra feminine and is a pretty, light perfume which suits every day occasions. I wish it would last a little longer though. I would buy again at the right price but it wouldn't be my first choice.
This is widely available and a 30ml bottle is around £35.
