5th Avenue (Eau de Parfum) - Elizabeth Arden

5th Avenue (Eau de Parfum) Drowned in Sweetened Soap
The version of 5th Avenue I was introduced to for the first time was prior to the changes that many classic perfumes had apparently undergone without any announcements. I appreciated it as a more 'modern', casual approach to the conservative...

L'Eau Jolie - Lolita Lempicka

L'Eau Jolie Not Lolita, for better or for worse
My admiration for the fragrances of this brand had always been rather limited to the visual aspects. Although I had the privilege of smelling the original EDP every week during my school days, it wasn't until a few years later,...

Too one-dimensional as my personal fragrance & lemon drops sweetener didn't make it for a summer refreshment. L'Occitane's syrupy version.

Appeared as spicy aftershave, let it rest few months - now, a wonderful combo of wood&incense, reminds of sandalwood box with incense sticks
After a brief nod to No5, jumps right to the bare essentials of "aldehydes". Thin and more wearable in warmer weather with light projection.

My hot skin burns the florals in a sec, the rest is covered clean by a loud&fatty bar soap monster (if you dare taking more than 1 spray).

This one only blooms in heat, just made for vacances far away - sipping iced lemon tea on the terrace, surrounded by exotic bright florals.
Intense spiciness contrary to the lucid bottle, nothing lovely. Would personally prefer this as a potpourri or soap scent, not as a perfume.

Lemony jasmine tea soap on my hot skin vs. jasmine-lemon candy w/almost melon-like green sweetness on the colder part. Where's the gardenia?

After the breakfast, you can wash the croissant flakes off your fingers with the floral liquid soap making your hands smell cool and clean.

We meet again, "L'Eau par Kenzo pour Homme"--a bit more floral&feminine in a different bottle. Great projection. Creamy herbaceous aquatic.
Despite my fears of honey, no Scandal. Golden&warm, 'terra ambrata'. Could be unisex. Personally, couldn't smell any similarities to Mon G.

"wow-factor"
I often see people judging a fragrance solely on the criterion whether it possesses "a certain wow-factor" or not. While the definition of such is still somewhat elusive to me, I had accepted it without much thought when I began on my review-reading journey.Some will nonetheless grant a neutral rating after admitting the fragrance is nothing 'unique', whereas...

The cats ran away...
A non-rating comment from 2001 on "Coco Mademoiselle (Eau de Toilette)" featured on a review site made me chuckle. The nuances of the original got lost in my clumsy translation."Received the blotter and when I came homeboth our cats ran away :-DThe scent is sweet but also spicyappears to be generic and yet, it's not.Sorry, I'm not good with words, so my explanation...

Hi Anessa, how have you been doing?
I just got a package of perfumes including three 5th avenues. I found the 75ml of 5th Avenue classic (yeah, soapy-floral), NYC Only (sweet-floral), and NYC Uptown (boozy-creamy) at a bargain price ... You can't imagine my surprise when I smelled them. Thank you so much for introducing me to these little gems, now I will try to get the others, for instance After Five.
Stay healthy, and keep in touch.

And when I say 'thorough' music, this does not necessarily amount to being stuck up. Learning to enjoy Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, etc, has actually resulted in my enjoying ~Obsession~ by Animoto or ~Funky Town~ by Lips Inc all the more also; & likewise, learning to actually enjoy ~Diagilev~ by Roja Dove has actually helped me to enjoy ~Dot~ by Marc Jacobs, etc.

Glad you took it with goodwill, my implying that you might have a mental block. Thought as I wrote "this might be a tad bold"! But what you said about attributing personalities to perfumes is fascinating. I think I attribute personalities to them also, but probably not in so intense or concrete a way, I suspect. I think my best analogy is music, actually, and certainly, at least with °thorough° music - really seriously carefully constructed stuff, particularly classical, but not necessarily that only - ones perception is usually in the direction of increasing appreciation: learning to °get° the more technical & deeper pieces, and then that feeding back into perceiving anew some piece one already knows but has overlooked somewhat, etc. So ones °compass° of music is usually expanding - a contraction is a rare thing, I should think.
