Catherine Malandrino Romance de Provence description

Catharine Malandrino describes Romance de Provence as an ?intimate floral bouquet to discover the timeless allure of Provence.? And while that is true, it?s probably a safe bet that there?s a ton of delicious apple pie being made there as well.

Because this fragrance begins with a drool-worthy opening combination of pear, apple blossom and black currant that smells exactly li

Strong "Sophisticated" Scent
This scent was a bit too strong for me. I was expecting something a little less sophisticated. I get headaches easily from perfumes and this one gave me one. I sprayed it twice in my living room and it lingered for ever. It was something I more imagine my grandmother wearing. Just not for me.

Heavy on the caramel
Heavy on the caramel so pretty sweet but long lasting and the sweetness lessens throughout the day and the scent gains some warmth and complexity.

Smells like flower bomb, which i don't care for to begin with. Don't really care for it, it smells a bit borderline for much older women.

Love the scent but it dosen't last.
I love the scent, it is sexy and sweet with a kick of spice. The black currant isnt overpowering and the florals make it nice and airy. It does not last long, i definitely have to re-apply throughout the day. After a couple of hours it was indetectable. That is the only reason for the 4 stars.

Love!
From the very first spritz on my wrist, it was love at first sniff! It?s floral, it?s gourmand, it?s sexy, it?s feminine. I?ve had several men stop me and ask what perfume I was wearing so they could purchase for their wife. I get compliments every time I wear it. Not to mention that I can?t stop sniffing myself! This is definitely full bottle worthy.

My absolute favorite! I have the full size of this and it is the only bottle of perfume I have bought in 15 years, so I think that really says something. Flowery but not overpoweringly, melting to deeper amber-y and sandalwoody musk.

Pleasant while it lasts
This smell to me slightly confuses me senses, it is sweet with a kick of spice. I had a hard time deciding between three and four star, it comes on strong but within 20 minutes it's like it was never sprayed. So if you wear this travel with it an apply throughout the entire day.

Floral, spicy, sweet...
I was unsure about this fragrance based on some of the reviews associating it with a "old lady". However, I was pleasantly surprised and pleased. It has a sweet floral scent with a spicy note. This isnt what I would consider a everyday scent, but a professional, mature, romantic scent with a little fun due to the sweetness. It is strong at first with 1 spray being enough, it tapers off to a beautiful fragrance. It does fade almost completely after a few hours requiring a refresh (why I did not give it 5 stars). Overall, I love it and looking forward to adding a full bottle to my collection.

Good smell, exotic
It's a great smell and it does last, but not something i would wear every day. It was so strong and rich that i found myself trying to tone it down with a lighter perfume. It's very exotic and sultry. A luxurious, sexy scent that i would recommend for date night but definitely not everyday or work.

Not my jam!
This smells nice however it was a little heavy on me. It smells better later in the day when the scent has calmed down some. It has more of a musky smell than I typically enjoy. Not to take away that this has a very nice combination of notes it was just not for me. It was not a smell I wouldn't identify as grandma-ish, it's more of a strong clean smell.

Month #2
So today I just got my second months perfume. I really like this one. It has a soft powder smell to it but not overbearing. To me, it is a very similar scent to Calvin Kleins' Euphoria. So if you love that perfume you will more than likely love this one. My aunt also loved it to. I recieved the Dolche & Gabanna Light Blue last month and it made my headache intensify. This one has not affected me like that, so I'm glad about that.

Sweet as Pie
My first impression of this scent was the strong sweetness it gave off. I caught the note of caramel immediately. It's not sweet through and through, but has a tone of sophistication as well. I love perfumes that have a candy smell, as long as they aren't overly sweet. My husband loves this too!

Sweet and clean
I really do love this scent. It?s sweet and fruity, but can have a touch too much sweet. There is a touch of a clean scent after it dries down as well. Kind of reminds me of Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris, which is a good thing. I?ve gotten compliments everyday I?ve worn it. I feel like it doesn?t last as long as I?d like. But I would def purchase a full size.

Sweet but not overly
This scent is not something I would ordinarily wear. It's a little sweet and I usually go for a cleaner scent. With that being said, I do like it and it has a sort of hypnotic effect on me. You definitely can't wear too much as it could be a bit over powering but I do like it.

This fragrance is beautiful! It is now in my top 5 favorites. I smell the sweet fruit fragrance first, but then the amber wins out. It is an elegant scent to me. One spray is enough to last awhile, more than that may be overbearing. I would highly recommend this perfume!

Very similar to Gucci Rush
I had a good feeling about this one based on other reviews, and I was right! Love it! Would definitely buy this one in the future. Smells very similar to Gucci Rush (red square bottle) which I wore about 10 years ago, EXCEPT this is just a smidgen lighter. Still sexy, spicy, and sweet- but instead of punching you in the face like Rush does, it slaps your face :) Husband is crazy about it too.

You have to give this a chance!
When this arrived I sprayed my wrist and said uh...nope. I couldn't just let it sit there so I sprayed it on the next morning. After it settled and "marinated" on my skin I really like it. It starts a little powdery and floral but give it a few and it turns into a nice, not too sweet smell. I cam catch a hint of berry. Don't give up on it!

This scent is very sweet. I am a huge fan of her other fragrance Paris. It smells absolutely amazing. This one has similar hints but a lot lighter and the scent does stay with you. All in all it isn't one I would buy for myself regularly but to use for this month is just fine.

I really enjoy this! It comes off spicy and strong at first but it mellows into a less spicy more your gourmand scent as it settles. I don't really get the apple pie thing but I do get wiffs of spice, baked sugar, and maybe a floral apple scent at different times. It never quite comes together to make an apple pie scent but I do love how it smells!

This is the first fragrance in 8 months that I disliked immediately. Dated, mature and nothing like what the main notes would suggest, it's a heavy, overpowering perfumy scent that just isn't for me. I don't get green tea, or warm caramel or apple pie. Maybe black currant, flowers and musk. It's an extremely rich and heady fragrance if that's your thing.

This perfume is exactly what you would expect from CM if you're already familiar with her perfumes. This one tends to lean a bit more on the musky side the Style de Paris but it still smells wonderful. If you like citrus and musk together you should try this.
