new favorite - warm and sexy
I didn't know what to think of this as I am not usually a fan of florals and this brand has florals in the name. My partner absolutely adores it on me and can't stop smiling when he smells it. It is a well rounded scent that dries down well and stays smelling warm and lovely

Vintage oriental vibe
Not an unpleasant scent but not very floral or impressive either. That was my first impression but I just tried it again and decided I love the dark spicy winter nights air of it after all. I think I overdid it the first try!

Warm and Dark Floral
On paper this floral fragrance has notes I adore, that should blend into a dream, but the pink pepper really reduces the thrill. Also, I have very high standards for tuberose, since I am an owner of Frederic Malle Carnal Flower, so anytime the tuberose note stands out and doesn't blow me away I am unfairly harsh. White he drydown ends up being lovely, but the pink pepper pushes the limits for too long. This would lean more vintage-feeling than modern if it weren't for it.

I love this perfume! It has a very distinct scent that is both fruity and floral. The plum comes through beautifully. I can spray it at 7 am and still smell it at 5 pm. Might have to buy this one!

This scent is more than fragrance
Just spritzing yourself with this is beautiful. I can't explain why it just one of those fragrances that make you happy to smell it. This is just that. It's almost like a Sunday afternoon drive in the mountains kind of scent. Maybe even a slow walk along the beach on a summer night. No matter what the notes are, the product as a whole makes me smile every time I spray it. It'll be gone LONG before the recommended 30 day use. :)

Lovely!
This was rich, subtle and yet has a good staying power. I love the varied textures and layers, and even more, the way it's all balanced. Goes on lovely and dries even lovelier! It's definitely a heavier scent, but still manages to be light enough for day time. Classy and mature in an ageless way.

Too old lady like?
This scent, is nice smelling if you want to smell like a young but old lady...not sure how to put it, it just reminds me of something my grandmother would wear... I guess I didn't get the hint of 1947 before they randomly selected this perfume for me

This is gorgeous....
I never wear florals, but this perfume is awesome! When I first sprayed it on, I thought it smelled like 100 other floral perfumes I have smelled over the years and I was slightly disappointed. But then a few minutes later, a peppery (or something) smell emerged and I can't really explain it, but it all just came together into a fabulous and very glamorous scent totally unlike anything I had ever smelled before. It smells exactly the way you would imagine old Hollywood would smell. Love it!

Gorgeous floral scent
This is a beautiful white floral. It’s not cloying or overly sweet like many white florals can be. I confess I don’t know what an actual dahlia smells like but the plum and jasmine are perfect. There’s just a hint of spice and vanilla and it has decent longevity. I’m seriously contemplating buying a bottle!

statement making vintage scent
I like over the top scents, and this is one luscious, vintage gem. I think more winter than fall. Very feminine. Totally surprises me that it's unisex. The word "grandma"/ "old lady" gets thrown around a lot here, and I never fully grasp what's sooo bad about that, but I have to say this scent is on the borderline of sexy and old. I love it though. very warm and long lasting.

What's offensive about it too is saying that all "old ladies" smell a certain way. It is ok to say something smells more mature, but besides doing it respectfully it is not helpful if a person can't be more specific than that.

A New Favorite!
I simply love this fragrance. I don't know about it being for both men and women - it is very feminine to me. It has a heady, syrupy jasmine scent that reminds me of walking into a garden center in the middle of summer when their jasmine & honeysuckle are in full bloom. While it starts off on the strong side, it lasts all day!

Beautiful and Elegant
This one is quite lovely, and definitely smells like it could come from 1947. It’s got a BEAUTIFUL floral bouquet open and dry down. The Dahlia, cashmere wood and jasmine are VERY prominent in the beginning and in the dry down, with the plum and tuberose peaking through. VERY well made. I would ABSOLUTELY buy a bottle of this. If someone is not into floral perfumes don’t get this one. As for me, I love them.

Love it!
I agree that this scent totally gives off an Old Hollywood vibe. This feels like something you'd wear when you're all dressed up for a nice dinner date. Very mature. There's a nice balance between the florals and the woodsy notes. Heavy but not overpowering. A strong scent but its sillage isn't TOO diffusive.

Creamy, spicy floral veil
This smells like how velvet feels. It's a heady but not overly heavy (on me, at least) blend of creamy spices, woody vanilla and a deep yellow floral heart. It evokes a 40s starlet, all elegance and glamour with a flirty edge. Definitely a pick for date night, but I'd wear this whenever I want a sexy/non-gourmand vanilla overlaid with warm florals, gentle spice, and the teeniest bit of vintage face powder. Medium projection and medium/low sillage on my skin with two sprays, still detectable but ready to reapply if desired by around 7-8 hours.

Definitely a date night scent
For me it wasn't as flowery as I was hoping, it had a very heavy presence of a mature smell. Definitely appreciate it but I would recommend this as a winter or late fall smell because it is very strong. I thought it would be a light, floral smell and was excited for it to be a summer scent.

Vintage Chic
I liked this fragrance even though I wouldn't order it again. It has a nice floral that isn't easily recognizable and you won't smell everywhere else. Definitely reminds me of a 1940's movie star. So if that appeals to you like an old classic movie, you'd like this perfume. Go lightly with it.

A Gorgeous Throwback
This is the first ever fragrance i've written a review on. This perfume was exactly what i expected it to be - an old world hollywood night out smell, with florals and sex all over. This perfume is for chic women who dress up and remember a bygone time. I'm practically obsessed. So glad i took a risk on this one,

Amazing!
Very surprising scent. Strong, sweet florals at first, but then it warms up and becomes creamy, decadent and very rich. Extremely complex, very difficult to pull out a single note. I'm hesitant with florals, as I usually prefer more gourmand, spicy or woodsy scents. This one, however, is both feminine floral and rich gourmand, with a 'summer night' feeling......very sexy.........makes a statement. This is a femme fatale fragrance for sure.

It's different
It starts off as very floral and it is a bit strong. I find it impossible to differentiate any one single floral note which I am sure is a credit to the creator. It takes an interesting turn a few minutes later and goes warm, spicy, woodsy with just a breath of sweetness. It is so interesting and very unique. I don't hate it but it is simply not appealing to me personally. I think it is just too heavy for me. I will put it away and try it again when the weather cools down.

Several reviewers said this would be a good choice for an older woman. I'm among that group and it is much too strong for me. Fragrance preference doesn't change as one gets older.

1947 Dahlia
Love this! The woods and vanilla base along with the plum gives it a dark, velvety feel. The white flowers are very subdued to me, they are there, but don’t jump out, and the pink peppercorn gives a nice touch of spice. No idea what dahlia smells like (I’ve seen them but don’t recall a smell), but I can feel the idea of a dark reddish purple flower with layers of velvety petals. Nicely blended. Will be adding a full bottle to my collection, think it will be especially nice as an evening scent.

Wow!! This one knocked my socks off. A gorgeous rich floral with a hint of musk. I usually can't stand musks at all but the tiny amount does something here. The sandalwood is present too. Although its pretty, I can see the right guy wearing this. A man who likes the fruitier Burberry scents might like this. Would also be nice layered with a spritz of something with a little spice. As another review said below, I too will be wearing this wearing this just for the BF. Can wear every day but.... I'll save it.

Ok...being real, this is a GREAT smell! Only thing is....this is a perfume! If I was a woman, I would smear this fragrance all over me. It’s rich, luscious, sophisticated, and did I mention RICH! But there is nothing masculine about it. To any woman that reads this review and is on the fence about getting it...by all means TRY IT OUT! If this a more masculine scent, I would definitely wear it. To Mr. Buterbaugh...get your noses to butch this scent up, so I can wear it!! Lol...definitely a nice scent for the ladies!

Very Similar To TF Black Orchid
It is a nice scent but not something I would repurchase. I don’t hate it at all. I think 3.5 is a good rating. Wear time was less than average. The initial scent wears off quickly on my skin. More of a powdery skin scent after 10 minutes. That being said, I have used 2/3rds already and I’m considering an upgrade. All in all, I think it’s better to stick to the scents that I already love and not to go by the description.
