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.
