    It's a little disapppointing despite the nice notes that Rykiel had to bring out another fruity floral after the Rykiel Woman EDT (which already was plenty of that and almost antithetically different than the glorious, innovative leathery, musky EDP ~which I might pride myself on making it popular with the boards).

    I don't see this having much success in an over- saturated market.

    You would certainly think the fruity floral market was saturated, but I guess people keep buying them or they'd all stop releasing them :-)

    I'm having a little difficulty imagining how it might open or operate, but the bottle for Lieber is really, really beautiful.

    I'm not surprised that the new Rykiel is a fruity floral. Has perfumery, in its entire history, ever been so completely dominated by a single style? It honestly seems as if every other release–more, probably–falls into that category.

    It does look pretty in the picture — and I'm sure it is one of those I'd end up breaking trying to figure out how to use it ;-)

    On the 2nd point, well, I don't know. Certainly there was a period when many of the popular women's fragrances were chypres, for instance. I think what makes the fruity florals stand out is partially just that there are so many releases now. If we're getting 800 new scents this year, and even a third of them are fruity florals, well, that is a lot of fruity florals! It certainly seems like I announce a new one several times a week, if not more.
