The top note is delicate and softly fresh (clementine, almond blossom and cyclamen). The drydown is warm, opulent, and balsamic with amber, musk and sweet powdery vanilla. The white flowers rounded things out nicely, and I remember it being sexy but not too heavy. EDIT: Come to think of it, this is a lot like YSL Manifesto L'Elixir with a citrus twist. All about push-up bras with tons of cleavage, big eyeliner, and lots of hair, the fragrance yet manages to have a sober elegance all the same.I keep seeing that word "elegant" in other reviews, and the description is apt. I really loved this fragrance, but unfortunately I ended up being allergic to something in it (the first and only time I had a reaction to a perfume) and my skin and it did not play well together, so I had to get rid of it. Longevity is very good, I am smelling the dry down from a test strip after 24h and it is still full bodied. It's the heavy blast of cheap hairspray and mandarin that shouts her presence and gives a really Southern European balmy summer sexy feel, but the golden almondy floral heart reveals her strength of character.I notice that fragrances that get the "love" vote on Fragrantica are often atomic bombs of perfumes, some of us are just have more delicate sensibilities ;) My very good friend says that Elle and Cinema are both perfumes for bigger size women.
The EDP comes off as strong, generic citrus for the first few minutes, but quickly dries down to warm creamy vanilla, with freshness and sweetness from the clementine and powdery white musk in its final stages. It's really quite sweet and syrupy, it almost reminds me of some sort of liqueur, maybe Amaretto with the almond note...
I guess I will have to hunt down a place to test it out of the "real" bottle tester to compare to mine...??? I really was happy with the scent...I will try again.. Nope, this has a very sharp chemical/synthetic edge and it's so very syrupy. Has anyone tried the discontinued parfum concentrate of Cinema?
It might smell better on others, my skin can really bring out sweetness and sharp chemical notes in perfumes sometimes, which is why I gravitate towards softer, more natural perfumes, but this seriously smells like something you'd find at the drugstore to me. Which I guess is great if it works on you, but it just prolonged my misery lol. I can imagine it being basically the above, with stronger mid to base notes and less top notes.
It smelled powdery and synthetic, reminding me of the cheap spray they use in Macy's bathrooms. Now it is a balmy 95 degrees in Southern California and I happened to leave this bottle on my desk. I got this off scentbird a few months ago, and immediately liked this perfume. I'd sort of forgotten about it, but got out all my scentbird scents, and decided to wear this today. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be stalking ebay for a full size bottle. For some reason this perfume reminds me of sunshine. For some reason I see it as more "mature" scent because its sophisticated.
I picked it up and sprayed it on my wrist, and oh my goodness. I can smell the citrus and amber and beautiful floral notes. if you want something elegant, in floral oriental family, this is an excellent choice.A California auction house says a guitar that Prince used in the late 1980s and into the 1990s has been sold for 0,000.
