Out of all Caron perfumes, Lady Caron is the one I don't get at all.
I have love or at least admiration for every other Caron, but this one smells abominable! I wish I knew what it is that makes it wearable to others, am I missing something good?

Only a little, Flora--I don't share Nika's intense dislike. For me, LC just misses the mark by a hair. There's a note in there I don't love, and unfortunately, it's one that grows with wearing.

There are so many other great Carons to enjoy, Nika, don't fret if you can't warm up to Lady Caron. She has plenty of fans.
