Too powdery, and too strong
I’m going to start by saying that I don’t like it when people say a fragrance reminds them of their grandma, but you know what? Tardes reminds me of my grandma. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, as my grandma smelled like Chalimar, but Tardes was a bit too much for me. It smells good, it’s just not for me. I don’t care for anything powdery, which may be the reason I don’t love it, as it’s quite powdery. It is sweet, slightly gourmand, and I can’t imagine it being unisex. It sounds like I don’t care for Tardes, but I really do. It’s just not for me. It’s very sweet and very comforting. Perhaps I’ll come back to it again and love it, but for now-I’m going to put it towards the back of my collection.
My grandmother wore Opium and Chanel N°5. She had great taste. I miss her badly and love her.
Lovely explanation! Very specific and personal.
