5th Avenue After Five - Elizabeth Arden

5th Avenue After Five Spring Supper at Tiffany's
I am generally not a snob in perfumes, and I am also inquisitive. After finding, trying, and loving the 5th Avenue classic, I wasn't sure what to demand from this one. The original is quite heavy but really adorable. After Five was a blind...

5th Avenue Only NYC - Elizabeth Arden

5th Avenue Only NYC A Warm Bright Shining Scent
My first encounter with the original 5th Avenue by Elizabeth Arden was odd. Reading the reviews written by @Anessa and following her hints, I was fascinated so much that I ordered online some of 5th Avenue collection perfumes, and Only...

Not linear with different stages, very sour fruity opening, it develops into a soft floral scent and closes with the musky and woody accord.

A surprising chypre with a twist, the citrus openining is supported by lemon verbena and patchouli is replaced by incense. Soapy and smoky!

It isn't outdated even if it's nowadays a vintage, a bit floriental, as sweet as a caress. There's a soapy overtone, it's subtle and lovely.

From the first notes, Just Different reminds me of the medicinal, resinous, and balsamic accents of L'Eau Bleue d'Issey Pour Homme, Not bad,

Opens up with grapefruit and a hint of lemon, followed by a woody dry down consisting of vetiver, incense, amber, and a lot of musk. Awesome

It's like an angel food cake, light and fluffy, with fresh raspberries and a small scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on the side. It's gentle.

It's a soft, warm, agreeable, and youthful scent. Mildly sweet, vegetal, green, and creamy. Worth a sniff, maybe you'll fall in love with it

A woody aromatic and musky fragrance, a spin-off of the original Azzaro Pour Homme with its iconic fougère aromatic woody signature. A must!

It doesn't smell as if you’ve just come out of the shower. Still, it's inviolable, woody, spicy, with dark flowers and dry fruits. Selfish!

Ciao Gian, Thank you for your report with the 3 Avenues - I'm really glad you found them enjoyable :) I myself haven't tried any other than Night and NYC yet (Night got a review, NYC was fresh-modern floral, pleasant enough) but am curious about the other ones, too. I have the feeling the 5th Av. line really may be not too much and neat in a good way. Would love to hear your opinion on further ones!
Stay safe you too, and have a good weekend. Anessa

Hi Elysium, I just saw your comment to my review. Thanks a lot. Luckily, Zoologist allows me to combine my love for animals with some inspirational storytelling that comes to my mind when smelling the scents. Victor's fragrances are the most fun to review.

Ciao Elysium, grazie per il tuo commento per la mia recensione di 5th Av. Night. Adesso mi sento responsabile, ma spero che il profumo ti piacerà :)

Hey Elysium, Thank you for reading and your comment under mine's of 5th Avenue :) I hope you'll find it was worth testing, Sparkling White Diamonds may even be more interesting for you.

Ever since I was young, I have always loved to smell great. Cologne head all the way. Now that I am older I still love going to the mall or local shops to smell the latest fragrances. Always looking to make my collection of scents larger :)

Hello Elysium, Thank you very much for your reading and your kind comment on my blog article! I myself do not always write affirmatively about a scent if it left negative impression - frustration, incompatibility - especially failed blind purchases w/o testing opportunity, relying on praising reviews by other people; I then try to add my experience hoping to spare anyone else that might repeat the same mistake I did, only because no one else mentioned anything else than positive things. Still, I try to honestly describe and explain why I perceived something differently and what I personally did not like about it (there are few exceptions like some very low quality "dupes" that really just smelt of chemical liquid). I appreciate reviews sharing sincere feelings and thoughts, as you said, (the same for everything else in life) and find that is what makes a review valuable and authentic. With best wishes to you, Anessa
