  • Victoriasown: Any word on when they will have bottles for sale? I heard not till August, I hope it’s sooner. They are gonna get everyone whooped up if they wait that long. :O)

    No mention of the violet? The violet was prominent to my nose.A fragrance strip sounds not too accurate. :O( June 9, 2006 at 2:18pm Reply

  • Gloria: I’ve tried it. It’s definitly a fruity floral and if you like that you’ll love this one. Even if you don’t think you would like it I think you should try it. It has great staying power and is very addictive. May I also say it’s a great compliment getter. June 9, 2006 at 2:25pm Reply

  • Laura: I had not heard of this one! Sounds like it’ll be fun to try. Can’t wait to read your review, V! June 9, 2006 at 4:19pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Ina, I need to revisit it at least one more time, but so far I am not enchanted with it. June 11, 2006 at 6:01pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: V, they have a tester, but no samples to mail out. I understood that the bottles will be available in July, but so far, one can get a preview. I am not sure what the official notes are supposed to be, but I got lots of berries, iris, violet, sandalwood and incense. Maybe, something else too, but I cannot recall it right now.

  • BoisdeJasmin: Gloria, I found it very tenacious, and it was the only thing I could smell the entire evening. A very strong sillage for sure. June 11, 2006 at 6:03pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: L, I wonder how you might like it. For me, it was a very traditional composition, which is probably what the house wanted to display. June 11, 2006 at 6:04pm Reply

  • violetnoir: What? You did not like it, V? I need details.

  • BoisdeJasmin: R, I promise to have them. It reminded me of Samsara in the drydown, albeit with a bit of musky fruit. June 14, 2006 at 12:30pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Gus, it sounds like it came from cosmeticnews. Thank you, but to avoid copyright infringement, I will have to remove the post and direct readers to the link instead. June 16, 2006 at 12:05am Reply

  • Gloria: Gotta say……some days Insolence is too much for me but it’s very recognizable. It can be too sweet but I get in the mood for it. Not like a lot of perfumes that all smell alike. It gets the compliments I’ll tell ya. July 29, 2006 at 9:10pm Reply
