Mademoiselle Ricci L'Eau by Nina Ricci
My dear perfume friend Sherapop refers to the nose behind this scent, Alberto Morillas, as "Chemical Albie." And, smelling this, I have to agree. This is horrible synthetic crap which gives the impression that the creator has never even smelled a photograph of a flower,...
Very little almond. Lots of cucumber, with a strong synthetic Aquatic
aspect. I would expect to smell this in a bathroom cleanser.
Elegant tobacco-rose with good sillage and lasting power. I appreciate it, but somehow it's not for me.+1
This is what I wanted from Prada Candy - harmonious praline, with benzoin as balancer. My favorite of the dozen I've tried from this brand.
SOOO SWEET. Lovely mix of notes, but needs half the sugar. If you like to smell like a big piece of nougat, here you go!+1
Smells like a fluorescent fake orange (US readers know it as powdered drink TANG). AC suffered from L'Oreal purchase - now cheap & fake .+2
Hazelnut note is interesting but rests atop a bog-standard men's cologne designed to offend no one. Felt like I was about to grow a beard.
Overpowering vanilla with a generic woody base to start, then it's all vanilla, all the time. Name is misleading.+1
Makes the wearer into a beautiful, carefree person, frolicking on a Mediterranean beach. A strong exception to my white flower hatred.+3
Smells like a slightly less viscous E. Lauder Youth-Dew. If you like YD but want to keep down the price & sillage, here's your scent!+1
Tried many niche cherry blossom scents. Haven't found one better than this bargain. Delicate, refreshing (would be great oshibori, too!).+2

Sorry I just discovered your answer under my review "The Empresses of Japan" I'm registered at the German Parfumo.de. That's why we did not get any message when somebody on the English Parfumo.net wrote an answer. But now this seems to work? Thanks for your answer. And I will notice the scent you mentioned. Greetings, Seerose

Since the rest of the Greek text reads "She's hiding her ears under her hood, for she doesn't want anyone to know that her parents were the first rebels. But deep inside she's proud of herself.", I guess that the part of the story we were never told was probably this one.

Tentations is actually more like eating a juicy pepper-sprinkled peach (enter eccentricity), as a snack accompanying a vodka-quaffing spree, in the middle of a garden laden with intoxicating carnation bushes. And speaking of kitsch, I think that its bottle is the exact opposite, since it would be the perfect movie prop container for holding a potion hanging from an oriental princess' belt.
