One Sentence Perfume Review: Flora by Gucci

It's a shame when a creature who is so charming at first glance turns out to be trifling and slightly degenerate.

Notes per Fragrantica: Citrus, Peony, Rose, Osmanthus, Patchouli, Sandalwood

Two Children with Crowns of Flowers, Gaston BussiƩre (1862-1929)

snockslTrue enough.

Still, we've smelled worse...
And it might pleasure the masses.

You and I have PLENTY with which to pleasure our decadent senses, sister-
Have we not ?

We fortunate.

SNOCKSL ISN'T part of the equation !

Blame Mr. Word Verification..

Chaya, I *love* "snocksl"! Unfortunately, the masses also have plenty with which to pleasure their noses. Feh, indeed.

And I agree with this assessment of Flora - except that I don't find it interesting enough even to be degenerate. Sad. "Wan rose." There's my 2-word damnation of it.

(My word verification is "INNAP" - appropriate since I am just about to go lie down, hoping to shake off my 102 degree fever~)

Poor Tommasina! Hope you feel better soon.

I will confess that the first blast of Flora pleasured me, and I was slightly disappointed when it went all flat and vaguely icky. The masses should save a few bucks and just get themselves a bottle of Sung at TJMaxx.
