Still a Pretty Swan

I'd forgotten how pretty this is. Several members of my family had worn this at one time or another in the past, though I never did. I'm kind of sorry now that I hadn't. This is a really beautifully blended perfume with the sweetness of pineapple, full-bodied florals, and a dusting of spice. I don't remember how the original formula wore, but I do remember that it had much bigger silage than what I am wearing today. But that could just be that women tended to pile on fragrances years ago with not much regard to others around them, whereas I only put on my normal 4 sprays. Is this dated? Certainly, by today's standard it is, but that doesn't make it any less pretty. It's clean, a little powdery, a little spicy, with candied florals, and a touch of tropical fruitiness. What's not to like?
