Big and BeautifulI remember the first time I smelled this in the early 90's, and I thought it smelled like nothing I've ever smelled. I know some may find it loud, but if you use this sparingly, it smells classic. It's probably not something I'd wear to work, but sometimes you want a fragrance with presence. It's got a lot of notes , but they go together. I also don't find this dated because it's well-balanced, and like it or not, big is still with us now (Flowerbomb and Alien, for instance). The sillage and longevity are great with this, so a little goes a long way.
Maybe I'm crazy, but I even like the quirkiness of the "heart" bottle.

Perfume for bubble skirts, big hairGotta hand it to Christian Lacroix: This tuberose-heavy fume is the olfactory equivalent of his famous late 80s bubble skirt-- kooky, impractical, overblown, a hot mess with too many notes competing for attention in each tier of its fragrance pyramid. Kind of lovable for all that.
It seems to be priced like a beloved discontinued, so maybe it's all that? In addition to tuberose, is it heavy on carnation too, as the note pyramid on that other site would suggest?
