This fragrance I bought in Nice 1972 and I used it for years … and every evening I used it created compliments from women but specially men. A wonderful fragrance that I missed for years. Found it again in Biarritz, 30 ml bottle, 3 years ago. Probably my first real fragrance ever at least the first I can remember.

This fragrance did I came across on Ebay, because of the price – got it for close to nothing, was a bit curious too – knew anything about it and I start it as an everyday wear. Already the first day – my female environment start to give me compliments – so there is a new bottle in my draw. Sadly the fragrance is now discontinued. Wonder how has no rose in it – can smell like the loveliest rose imaginable. There is still some bottles out there for about £75.00.

This fragrance and I met in Canada 1989 – love at first sight .. and I wore it for years. People came up to me and asked what fragrance I wore.

We met over Ebay 5 years ago. All because of the bottle’s little “hat”. Bought it very cheap and we have been friends ever since. Can’t get it anymore from anywhere!!! Except 5ml mini bottle from USA – but too small. Will be missed.

What a fantastic love affair we had … even if nearly every woman around me wore it to. We all went mental when it was launched. Something very special about this fragrance, but it was my last big launched fragrance I ever bought – even if it’s timeless. Our love affair is done and over, but no regret!
