This is one of my favourite perfumes and I always buy myself a bottle when I am at the airport as my treat to myself. I first tried this as a tester years ago and I loved it straight away but it is such a strong and distinctive perfume that I only really wear it occasionally and certainly not as an everyday perfume.
It is also too expensive to just wear everyday as I couldn’t bring myself to wear it just popping to the supermarket since it is so expensive. Besides it is the type of perfume that really deserves to be worn when you are all dressed up and going somewhere nice as it is very elegant.
I assume it smells of Iris though I don’t really know what they smell like. It doesn’t smell to flowery to my nose though it is very powerful when it is first sprayed. It is really intoxicating and quite a heavy scent and not light and insubstantial. It is very grown up smelling at least to me and not really comparable to those light and flowery perfumes that are targeted to young girls.
Although I love this I know at least two people who absolutely despise it so it is definitely a fragrance that will divide people but life would be boring if we all liked the same thing.
When wearing this I only ever spray once on each wrist and then a couple of squirts on my neck as I think anymore than this and the perfume would be too overpowering.
As I said this is quite expensive and can cost up to £200 depending on the size of bottle though the 50ml is about £55.
I was on holiday recently and purchased a 100ml bottle of this eau de toilette, which included a 100ml bottle of the body lotion for £50.40 (June 2013). I had a quick look on the House of Fraser website and it currently retails at £43, so overall I am very pleased with the price I paid.
The eau de toilette has a very fresh fragrance and is made up of Pallida Lily, Lily of the Valley, Violet, Heliotrope, Cedar and Galbanum. It has a fabulous lingering scent that is floral, yet fresh and light, which is great for the summer months. It is not over powering and I find that two sprays is plenty to last all day.
The bottle is rectangular and very simply designed, it looks very elegant on my dressing table. The bottle is made from frozen matt glass and the eau de toilette is a light green colour. The bottle comes presented in a sturdy cardboard box that again is simply designed. The dispenser is easy to use and sprays evenly and the lid is made from silver metal.
Overall I would recommend this eau de toilette to others as it is light and fresh, a little goes a long way and the design of the bottle is classic and elegant. The only downside is the price, therefore I give this product 4 Dooyoo stars.
