Comments: Starts with an overripe fruit blast, registered to me as papaya or mango, but was probably the peach and apricot. 15 minutes later, turns into this strange fruity wood – the whole reminding me of orange-flavored fluoride treatments with the same level of suffocation. Takes about 15 more minutes to burn off the fruit notes as it morphs to a significantly more pleasant spicy floral wood (heavy on the clove and cinnamon). A hint of the peach in this phase. NOW its wearable. The peach stays for the rest of the drydown, amongst a vanillic musky floral. A wear 1 hour before going out scent. Probably wouldn’t spray this one either.

Comments: Reminds me of the powder on concord grapes. Gets very powdery – especially up close. Then it becomes this weird suffocating overripe fruit thing. Not wearing at all well on me. Really really strong – even when only wearing 5 drops.

  1. I love Yvresse. Bought it when it first came out as Champagne and am still buying it (I get commnents on it everywhere I go). I buy it via internet (Ebay, Amazon, etc.).
