Linear and More of a Chypre Than a Woody Oriental
Top Notes: Plum, Green Notes, Galbanum, Osmanthus, Peach, Hyacinth, Bergamot, Lemon, Cinnamon.

Heart Notes: Aldehydes, Tuberose, Orchid, Orris Root, Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Lily of the Valley, Rose, Freesia, Carnation.

Base Notes: Sandalwood, Amber, Musk, Oak Moss, Raspberry, Cedar, Tonka Bean.

I received a sample of the EDP as a gift. I am very glad I did not purchase this because I do not like it at all. It is very sharp. I only detect galbanum, lemon, aldehydes, cedar, and a bit of oak moss. This fragrance is classified as a Woody Oriental, but I perceive it as a chypre. It is similar to Revlon's Charlie, another fragrance I cannot abide.

This is not an especially complex scent at all. I find it quite linear despite its complex note pyramid, and there is nothing at all sweet or woody about it. Top notes were harsh and acrid. By the dry down, it just smelled really harsh. It stays fairly close to the skin. I had to wash it off a few minutes after I applied it as it gave me an horrible headache. Too bad as I really expected to like it given the notes pyramid. I am sure many people love it, but personally, I cannot recommend it. Sorry.

Where Have I Been All Your Life?
Brilliant! Found this gem while browsing the discounters and was so pleasantly surprised. It's almost an oriental, almost a chypre. It's at once fruity, woody, green and clean, and so lovely I had to research the designer and discover what else he or she has done. Jean-Pierre Béthouart has 89 perfumes in our database, including Boucheron, one of my favorites, and Caron's delightful Parfum Sacre. He's designed for a number of major brands, but principally for Jeanne Arthes, a French house in Grasse that also does perfumes for others. Jean-Pierre is apparently (or was) their principal nose. In an interview he says his favorite novelists are the 19th century Romantics, i.e., Balzac, Hugo, etc. Balzac was my favorite, too, for a long time and his The Wild Ass’s Skin my favorite book. There’s something of it in this perfume — something a little magical, a little fabulous, and quite wise. Balzac knew people and was a genius at depicting them. I suspect Jean-Pierre has a similar genius with perfume, born of deep knowledge. How else so beautifully combine such a collection of notes? Neither the longevity nor sillage are stunning (3-4 hours at best), but at this price I'll gladly reapply. Otherwise, to me, all that's wrong with this mesmerizing perfume is that I haven't been wearing it for the 14 years it's been around! Off to explore what other creations of Jean-Pierre are at the discounters.

Hello Gorgeous!
This is just a simply gorgeous and economical scent (I might add). Ellen Tracy is a clean white musk overlaid with a soft white peach, plum and rose. I can't detect any orchid (thank goodness- not a big fan). Instead I get a gentle green note from galbanum and the beginning of a gracious serenade of jasmine and lily. Later, I can percieve just a tender touch of orris root which provides a layer of soft powdery depth. There is also a little clean/shampoo note to the drydown which I like a lot. I love aldehydes an this fragrance has a touch right in the middle which really brighten and zip up the whole composition along with a touch of lemon and osmanthus. There is that little bit of honeysuckle peaking out from behind the curtain, but not enough to overwhelm and the base delivers a bit of sandalwood to the musky drydown that leaves me feeling smooth and sexy. The more a wear this the more it reminds me of the stewed fruit and incense notes in both versions of "Feminité du Bois". It's not a dead on match, but it does bare that similarity in a couple of aspects. The base lingers lovingly with a touch of golden amber and sandalwood and an airbrush of cedar. I personally can't locate oakmoss in this fragrance, so if you love those big whopping oakmoss chypres of yore- this will probably not dazzle you. Ellen Tracy also sports a remarkably high quality and well designed bottle for the price and I love to display; this I can readily display on my dresser top with out the fear of sun exposure, because I know I can pick another on up for a song and I go through this fragrance with abandon. The soft tender peachy color of this liquid is a perfect match for the fragrance. It's a bit to heavy for the heat of the Summer, but otherwise, I would call this a 3-season fragrance for day of evening with moderate sillage, that starts out good and gets better after the first hour; well worth a try, even ok for a blind buy- IMHO.

I whould not catalgorized this as an
orental woody it should be a floral fruity the opening notes are a hint of plum maybe a faint wisper of peach
and hiacynh i don't noticed the aldehydes i don't think my my opinion
there's any aldehydes at all.
the bottle is beautiful clean lines
nothing flashy a light golden color
this is'nt a flashy perfume it's for a gal who emjoys the simple things in life.
