I've been meaning to try this for a long time and it is a wonderful surprise! It is a very delicate, fresh rose petal fragrance. Yes, softly feminine and just slightly spicy with a violet/cosmetic vibe, but it is not overtly powdery, like Tient de Neige nor is it cloying in any way, nor candy sweet with fruit, like raspberries. There is no trace of dried rose petals or dusty potpourri which is a turn-off for me. While it has a slightly retro quality, it doesn't really feel dated so much as very understated, soft, and sheer. Easy to wear when you prefer that your fragrance speaks quietly.
