    A new fruity floral?! How did they know what I wanted?!! Just what the world needs more of!


    • miss kitty v. says:

      Ok, now that I’ve made my bitchy remark… I DO love bitter orange. So…maybe? Maurice Roucel usually does pretty stuff.

    • Robin says:

      LOL! The notes do sound good…I’d like to know what fruits are in there though.

      • miss kitty v. says:

        I didn’t see anything listed besides bitter orange, so it may have some promise.

  2. RusticDove says:

    Yes, the notes don’t sound too shabby. Definitely doesn’t sound sugary sweet anyway. But, aren’t the fragrance marketing companies getting tired of saying ‘fruity-floral’ already?! Where’s some originality?

    • Robin says:

      I assume there must be many unlisted notes…it does not sound fruity floral at all.

      • boojum says:

        Maybe they think people only WANT fruity florals, so called it that to fool them, when really it’s a citrus floral? Could we be that lucky?

        • Robin says:

          Seems more likely that it isn’t a complete list of notes.

  3. RusticDove says:

    Oh, and nifty looking bottle.

    • Daisy says:

      Sheesh! that’s the bottle? I just glanced and assumed she was holding a white ball (why? darned if I know! ) Had to scroll back up and take a look…..hmm still looks like a ball or a great big mint…or a big chlorine tab for the pool, a huge aspirin (for a really big pain)

      • pyramus says:

        The bottle looks almost exactly like the bottle for Cerruti 1881 Lumieres D’Ete, only opaque. Otherwise, nearly identical. It also calls to mind Jacomo Silences (only white instead of black).

        So: once again, nothing new under the sun.

        • bergere says:

          Right! Which had a tricky bottle cap, as I recall.

      • RusticDove says:

        Well, weird me, I actually do like the bottle [as long as that’s NOT the actual size LOL].

        • Robin says:

          I might like it too…I’d like to see it in person.

  4. monstabunny says:

    He’s such an outstanding nose, it’s gonna be worth a sniff.

    • Robin says:

      Definitely, although I do not find it easy to locate testers of Ferre scents in the US.

  5. Phyllislechat says:

    sheesh, I’m still working out my budget for some Creed Fleur de The’ Rose Bulgare. maybe later with the fruity floral nonsense,lol.

  6. thenoseknows says:

    also reminds me of Shiseido Vocalise, The Bottle that is… The Notes sound good… but decidely vauge…. no idea how this may come off… so hope to get a whiff then determine (the last original Ferre Scent for women and men, Ferre By Ferre were AWESOME!)

  7. fragola says:

    I have just smelt it, it’s a green, bitter orange blossom accord, really close to Pure Poison. A bit disappointed…

    • Robin says:

      Oh, but I do like bitter orange blossom, so long as it isn’t as clean as Pure Poison. Hope I’ll get to try it…
