From the sublime to the ridiculous? Pffft. I was just reading about that one last night and thinking it might be worth a shot.

I dunno.

Once I get past the 'easy, breezy Cover Girl' note, I like it.
Note : I like it, but I rarely wear it.

Thank God I bought a small bottle.

I've read enough reviews of this one to know I am very much in the minority with my complaint. Everybody else either loves it, or says it's too linear--whereas I just adore the opening (I think it's that cover girl note I like), and then feel completely betrayed when it goes all beachy and ordinary.

I agree wholeheartedly with you. I much prefer Un Lys.

Hi Jen! Yes, I think Un Lys is in a class by itself, really exquisite.
