Anaïlator...
There's this girl.
She's in her early twenties.
She dresses in white frocks and flowery shawls, and she always lowers her eyes when addressed.
She looks so innocent and fragile, that all you wanna do is treat her like a goddess, and put her on a pedestal and as far from harm's way as possible.
OK, and have sex with her at some point, but only in the most romantic way.
So you are flirting her persistently and you are absolutely enthralled by her cute, shy reactions and her adorable blushing.
But when you finally get her to bed, ready to be as poetic a lover as possible, you're in for the surprise of your life.
Cause this beauty may have never be with a man before, but she has secretly read every dirty book imagined.
Again... And again... And Again...
And she has conned all explicit details in them.
And she's more than eager to test every single one of them in vivo.
And you were lucky(?) enough to cross her path.
Cause she was looking for a guinea pig.
And that's exactly what you shall be.
Again... And again... And again...
Morning will find you either unconscious or begging for mercy...
You'll find none.
Guinea pigs are expendable after all.
You'll never look at innocence the same way again, given that you'll survive her.
Be careful of Anaïs Anaïs...
Be extra careful of girls wearing it...
They're most likely tigers in flimsy cages.
You're most likely their unsuspecting prey...

After the show
Anais Anais! Sweet name, repeated twice as if to make us remember you.
Anais Anais! White and delicate like a balerina, waving her arms like the wings of a swan. You are pure in your sparkling white tutu and you spin and fly lightly in the air, and mesmerize me with the swift motion and the glittery lids and perfect make up for the stage. Are you the White Swan or maybe the Saint-Saens ' swan ? The short moments when you dance up there, you seem brighter than the limelights and then, still dreaming of you, I wait outside the theatre to see you exiting. And my wait is rewarded by an unrecognizable silouette, pale and thin, with no glitter and sparkle, trying to find her way through the rainy night. Was it your swan song, Anais Anais , or has it just been my imagination?

This perfume-in the Eau de Parfum version- was one of my favorites in the early 1980. The new release in 2005, is so different , so lifeless that it took me a long time to find the right words to describe it.

A Prissy, Pretty and Puritanical Floral
This is a dry floral with full on hyacinth, lavender and lily notes. Puritanical and widely accepted as the perfect scent for high senior Prom Queens and popular girls. That is, unfortunately due to the overwhelming popularity during the late 80s of this scent. In my Prep school girls were generally adhering to one of 4 female archetypes- the jolly mother hen, the punk rocker/rebel/outcast misfits, The wanton fair young virgin and the athletic/tough chicks- this fragrance seemed very popular with both the mother hen and the wanton fair young virgin crowds. I fell in another group, I'll leave that for another time, my signature scents were Chanel No. 5, Fendi and Gucci No.3. Back to my main point, this fragrance is still a classic daytime floral, long lasting and unforgettable. Though I can't stand it on my on skin, I can readily recognize it on others and it is not an unpleasant crisp floral scent at all. Perhaps, it is just my personally memories and associations which have biased me, but I can't help but recall harsh early morning History Lectures, chronic Strep throat and lousy institutional oatmeal and toast breakfasts followed by the appearance of freshly Preppy "day commuter students" filled with privilege and what I imagined to be joyful parents whipping up flying magical blueberry pancakes...o.k. turns out none of that was real. But still Anaïs Anaïs comes across as cold, crisp Hyacinth and lily scent with a loud cheerleader center of jasmine, honeysuckle and Rose. Finished with a stoic oakmoss, vetiver and cedar base pressed and starched ladies attire ready to face the day and I certainly have never been, so it never fit my personality or taste. Having said that, if you enjoy the powerhouse fragrances of the 80s, this should be on your list to test as it is an undeniable classic.

Generic and Girlish
I loved this fragrance when I was thirteen or so, and that seems to be the age of girl it suits. I put some on periodically, and I just don't enjoy it anymore. It's not a bad fragrance or anything. It smells pleasant, albeit a little bland and lacking depth. I know other notes are listed, but to me it's just a watery powdery floral. If you’re a girl under the age of seventeen, this will likely appeal to you and smell perfectly appropriate, but I've outgrown this.

Anais Anais
When I was in high school there was a girl in my dramatic arts class who wore this. It smelled completely intoxicating on her. When she mentioned the name of it one day, I never forgot and that was over 20 years ago! That's got to say something about this fragrance. Easily one of my favorite perfumes on a lady!

Powdered daisys
I thought this was a little too overpowering and powdery for my liking. Not something that I can imagine appealing to me at any age. I wouldn't describe Anais Anais as being powdery and heavy like Chanel No.5, but rather a sourish floral scent. This however has great lasting power. I'm also not a fan of the bottle. They should have made a new bottle design since the original has been around for nearly 40 years.

Update:
I decided to give this another try to see whether my opinions might have changed. At first spray I realised why I didn't like it, it smelt rather like the weeds that are so common in Australian fields. It was greenish and sour. However, the drydown of this fragrance which I'd previously missed was rather likable. It wasn't unique in any way, but was rather soapy, powdery and fresh. Still not my cup of tea but not as bad as I previously thought.
