Irresistible femininity
I have "Gem" as a treasure in the red atomizer and I am still in love with this beautiful and soft fragrance.
As a prelude powdery, floral, yet fruity elegance in a demi-sec champagne bath; a little later the promise of a refined seduction and lasting dreaming in the arms of the beloved....
A very feminine fragrance with sophistication, soft and irresistible!

Dark and Charming
What are the characteristics of a gem? Warm, true and uplifting to say the least.
Add to this definition High End Luxury and we're talking Van Cleef & Arpels Gem.

I must confess I sold this baby some years back, because I thought I did not need it. I regarded Gem as plain good.
I do make some poor decisions at times. The same happened with L'Heure Bleu and Must (both of which have returned in my wardrobe, I am very pleased to say).

Do not take too much notice of the categorization Chypre Fruity.
Ok, there is plum in here, major plum. But this is as woody as it gets.
Warm, sensual and mysterious, so the term "Woody Chypre" might be justifiably applied IMO.

Today a 30 ml vintage bottle arrived after a very long search.
Vintage perfume rules.
This is not plain Good. This is plain Excellent.
