Marshmallow, Vanilla, and Raspberry Perfection
The marshmallow here is soft and fluffy; generally, I find this note tricky and it often doesn't work, but here the marshmallow takes center stage and is the sweetest, most realistically-edible expression of the note I've experienced to date. My experience is: marshmallow, vanilla, and raspberry forward in a gourmand-sweet accord supported by delicate white florals, smooth sandalwood, and powdery heliotrope (just a smidgeon), however your mileage may vary as they say.
Echoing what others have said before, this absolutely will last on textiles until laundred but eventually dries down to a lovely, delicate skin scent (which, delightfully, depends upon application and environmental conditions combined).

I didn't even know this beauty existed until last week, when a fellow member and dear friend sent a most generous box which included several spray-sample vials of this inimitable fragrance. Suffice it to say that it was instantaneous love and I now own my first 100 ml bottle.

Fragrance: 10. So beautiful, I can't even.
Value: Worth. No-brainer worth more than it's cost.
Performance: Moderate or better on all counts (a definite Goldilocks perfume for me... just right!)
She ticks off all the boxes for this enthusiast, folks. I hope you enjoy her as much as I do! ♥

Marshmallow comparison part 2
I recently received a sample of Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme (the new one from 2012). I really like its marshmallow note, so today I sprayed one arm with it and the other arm with Mariah Carey M to compare this note.

At first, I liked D&G better; it smelled subtler and more refined. Once the heart notes were reached, I liked the M better because it was richer, deeper, and more floral--the gardenia and tiare were really shining through the marshmallow sweetness. In comparison, the D&G smelled like Smarties Candies on my skin; the M definitely had more depth.

Now I've reached the base notes, and the M is a barely-there incense, while the D&G is still sweet with a slight bit of neroli peeking through.

I don't know which one I prefer. The marshmallow note is carried differently by both perfumes. If I had to hazard a statement, I'd say the D&G is best for daytime wear and/or spring and summer wear, as it is lighter and won't knock anyone over the head. M is best suited for evening use and/or fall and winter wear, as it is deeper and richer and has better sillage. Try one during the day and spray the other on at night!

Real love
I just received my new bottle, and it was instant love. I love sweet fragrance that are playful, not overbearing or cloying. And this fits the bill. I am pretty sure this 100ml bottle will not last long, because I know already that I will reach for this beauty a lot. So yummy. Just perfect. It just bumped my Tom Ford Velvet Orchid off my top 5 list. Sorry, but this beauty is AWESOME! And you know when it is love, REAL LOVE!

A Simple Winter Pleasure...
I have had this fragrance for some time now, and never realized how much I would enjoy it in the very cold weather. It is not a complicated scent by any means, but the notes are pleasant and satisfying. The opening is a small fizz of the raspberry, followed by a blast of Neroli. This is not a bitter Neroli, but a tamer version owing to the fact that the tangerine or more like orange to my nose) seems to level it out, somehow. I like the Jasmine very much, as it seems to be a very creamy version, and I suppose this is due to the marshmallow note! It all comes together very nicely indeed, and, the dry down is a fluffy powdery mix. I think it is a wonderful , and comforting fragrance, especially in the really cold months. I tried it in the Spring, and wasn't taken with it, but what a different story it turned out to be in the colder weather!

Hard to decide...
Because I love the marshmallow smell I ordered a sample. I never did note the marshmallow, and what I did note in my amateur review (sweet, vanilla, musk, soft and feminine) I didn't like. However, at the end of the day it lost all the annoying smells and became and a soft feminine powdery smell that I loved. But to get to that point takes too long so I wouldn't buy it.

swing and a miss
After reading reviews on another site, I had expected to like this one. Unfortunately, I do not after 3 wearings. Tuberose, orange flower, and marshmallow clash and fight to be dominant. This creates a chemical soup of a smell, and it gave me a headache every time I wore it.

The original red cap was bold and beautiful. Pour Femme does not hold a candle to it.

Artificial sweetness
After smelling this today I whas totaly dissapointed. Is this the replacement of the classic femme? Wow D&G are you sure you know what youre doing.
After putting this on skin I smell a artificial sweet Raspberry scent with a bit of citrus. In that stage you can say it smells vagly like the top notes of the classic one but not for long. It turns a bit woody and bittersweet I guess there is the marshmallow I dont like this, has no sillage at all.
This cant compeed with the original Femme at all. In my opinion a bad replacement

Classic case of false advertising. Sultry shots of Casta don't really align with this droll semi sweetness. Neroli is redemption after 1hr.

Light and sweet like Smarties candy; appropriate for daytime and spring/summer wear. Fairly linear; mostly sweet with a tiny bit of neroli.+2
