do not try this
It smells like they're going for vintage perfumes in this one. This brand has scents that aren't ordinary. It's hit or miss with ELDO. This one smells like you're visiting your grandmother who has elegant antique perfume bottles from the 50s on her vanity and they still have the same perfume in them from back then. It's overpowering and sickly. Maybe someone with a desire for that specific nostalgia will find this amazing. But if you like to smell fresh, spicy, or citrusy in general, do not waste your monthly pick on this. It is the opposite of a clean scent. Curiosity killed the cat when I picked this one.

Naughty
This reminds of an 70s-80s powerhouse fragrance á la Opium. There's nothing subtle going on here, and the nostalia factor is probably why I like it. It's strong but I wouldn't say it's aggressive or heavy. It does make its presence known, but it fades pretty quickly. After awhile, the brashness fades and there's a bright floral woodiness to it that reminds me the original Fendi, but not nearly as strong. It reminds me of when my mother would go out on Saturday nights in the 80s, dressed to the nines and wearing a cloud of Estee Lauder Knowing.

It was ok
It was a bit stronger than I expected. Also more floral than i wanted. Im trying to find scents that are not floral and having a hard time

Not being flippant: try searching for perfumes that don't have floral notes listed as part of the perfume (this one lists rose). Scentbird has a way of picking notes if you go to the main page for perfumes and scroll down to a menu where you can pick notes. Then pick a couple non-floral notes, like grapefruit and cedarwood. Look at the other notes in the perfumes that show up in the results, and pick perfumes that don't have florals. For instance, Acqua di Parma Bergamotto di Calabria could be a nice selection for you (it's unisex and doesn't list floral notes). It may take some hunting, but I find that's part of the fun. Good luck!

Can’t even give this away
So, I sprayed this all over my sister as a joke, my brother in law came in disgusted and said she smelled like white diamonds and ol’ Lady ass. This perfume definitely captures the 1950’s notes... lol

Can't Smell Any of the Notes
I don't smell any of the mentioned notes. It just smells like chocolate both in the bottle and on the skin. Very strong at first but it does fade into a more pleasant but still very chocolatey scent.

I'd rate it zero if I could
BARF. This scent is Horrible. NONE of the notes come through, the only thing that does is stinky old lady. It smells so bad... bad enough that another scent couldn't mask it D: this is my only bad scent I've gotten and I'm just upset I p-id for it.

It was okay
Was really looking forward to this fragrance but it didn't live up to my expectations. I'm not sure what the overwhelming scent is but I'm not a fan

It’s alright
I really wanted to love this fragrance! As a huge Marilyn Monroe fan I was intrigued by the description and had high hopes, unfortunately this perfume fell short. Champagne & Patchouli with the dry down being faintly flowery, I really wish the peach note would have popped, it would have made all the difference in my opinion.

Not for me
I wanted to love this based on the description but it’s not for me. It’s definitely a more mature scent and not in a good way. I tried it a few times but the scent is not pleasing, almost has a bug repellent smell. I will give this away.

Ewww
I love peach and the only reason I added it to my list was because of that BUT it was such a disappointment!!! It smells like an old lady perfume (no offense) but I will never spray it again. YUCK!!

Not good
I didn’t like this sent at all. It doesn’t evoke images of Marilyn Monroe. I can’t smell any champagne or fizzy note at all. It smells like old perfume that has turned. The only thing I smell on the dry down is soap. This is a no for me.

Has that strong cologne scent, and smells powdery afterwards. Not as sweet as I’d hoped

The sent is very strong at first but sweet once it settles in. I love that it is fresh.
