Estee Lauder Cinnabar Reviews
Fragrantica - "I will always love this perfume! I adore its sultriness. I adore its spiciness. I adore the memories it conjurs up. It's a gorgeously rich fragrance that's easily a signature scent. I, personally, love too many fragrances to relegate only one to be my signature. Cinnabar is a magical scent, complete with fire and ice."
Fragrantica - "This is the very definition of a classic oriental. It is warm , soft but powerful, rich, intense, sexy and also elegant . I think it is the best oriental perfume I have encountered in years and the ingredients remind me of the glory years of fine perfumery that is almost nonexistent now."
