Rated 2 out of 5 by Kwarnst Not my cup of tea I had a sample of the eau de parfum version of Parsienne and I loved it, I wanted to order a full size, and bought the eau de toilette version by mistake. And to be honest: I regret that mistake, I prefer the Edp. The fragrance starts very sweet and fresh, and the scent is packed with the juicy sweetness of berries. The heart is build on several flowers, rose and lily of the valley among them but it contains a very synthetic note as well (I guess that should be the vinyl accord). I dislike the synthetic character; it is harsh and too present, it disturbs the harmony of the fragrance. The drydown contains musk, suede and iris, which give the fragrance a more sensual and powdery feel. I think this fragrance is glamorous, very modern, romantic but with an edgy twist at the same time. I imagine this fragrance to be worn by a young, very confident en selfconscious woman. It is fresh and in my opinion very suitable for summer. I like the opening, I like the drydown, but I can’t look beyond the harsh synthetic heart. This is just not my cup of tea. I like it better on fabric than on my skin though; it develops in a nicer, more gentle way and it lasts much longer. I like the elegant design of the bottle. Lasting power is average.

Rated 5 out of 5 by L Really pretty fragrance, great for any time of day. Lighter and fresher than the eau de parfum version - so good for summer. November 29, 2010
