About this deal

Combination of White Linen by Estee Lauder and Sparkling White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor with an additional grassy note, The only sweetness is the slight natural sweetness of the flowers. There is something moderately sweeter about this one, but overall, it has brought back pleasant memories. Top notes are Coriander, Orange Blossom, Black Currant, Cassia, Plum, Tangerine and Peach; middle notes are Tuberose, Hiacynth, Carnation, Ginger, Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Freesia, Iris, Rose, Heliotrope and Violet; base notes are Civet, Vetiver, Black Currant, Musk, Sandalwood, Cedar, Amber, Tonka Bean and Vanilla.

It arrived today, and as soon as a sprayed it I remembered smelling it as a kid and getting an overwhelming ammonia tang.Tons of fragrances copied the berry plummy tuberose/carnation floriental style after Poison was released.

The bottle is charming, the performance is above average and the scent is delightful if you like slightly aldehydic florals. Maybe i can find something nice to layer it with, as it is it's waaay too old school nice girl/lady smelling for me. It perfectly befits a young woman at heart and spreads her cheer and joy to people around her with its exuberance. Thanks to its soft smell and the good sensations it conveys, this perfume has a high rate of acceptance among the female public, so it becomes a perfect gift idea. It's fresh and light but lasting and the dry down is close to the heart notes but softer and warmer somehow but maintaining the opening brightness.

In its olfactory notes we can highlight initially blackcurrants, tangerines and pears, fruity notes that are softened by the cherry blossom, which from the beginning and firmly marks its presence. The EDP is much closer to my memory of Dior Tendre Poison, which I never owned but remember on other people and from testing. The perfume is strong, long-lasting and sharp, it needs time to develop, at the beginning, right after you spray it, it's like someone slames you with a huge white bouquet and you don't know what to think, but after an hour it develops and softens.

It goes through a phase reminiscent of crushed flowers, like someone was trying to make floral wine and smashed a barrel of flowers instead of grapes. She moves a little slower now as she takes her leisurely evening walks because her knees and back like to "playfully" remind her they are there with little bursts of surprises catchs and aches.Its bottle symbolizes a bouquet of cherry blossoms, depicted on its stopper in a cheerful, feminine pink colour. All Grés perfumes have that typical French retro flair that is not admired by the masses, they are sophisticated fragrances for sophisticated women. It is rare that I have such a strong reaction to a sweet perfume; even if I wouldn't wear something very sweet, I still might like it, because I like flowers, many of which are very sweetly-scented, in the garden.
