Must sample if you like fruity florals.
If you're going to wear a fruity floral, it might as well be this one.
For a fruity floral, Pluie de Soleil is GREAT. I primarily get strawberries, although there is a tad of pineapple lurking in the backgroud. All other accords are difficult to breakdown. Pluie de Soleil stays light & bright through 2 hours or so of wear. Then it descends into a typical woody-musky base.
Overall, Pluie de Soleil feels youthful, happy & sunny, just as a fragrance in this category should. It seems to contain high-quality ingredients. I am not irritated by the freesia, which I often get in mass market fragrances. Marked unisex but definitely on the femme side - there are not many men I know who would wear this.
Pluie de Soleil is not my cup of tea. In fact, during my sample, I also dabbed on the berry-rich Givenchy Hot Couture No 1 to compare. The Hot Couture is dark, moody & brooding by comparison, which I prefer and is apparently more my style, lol. Nevertheless, Pluie de Soleil definitely is a must-sample ... provided you like this category of fragrances.
