A wan saffron tea with a back wash of something vaguely aquatic. It smells like the 1990s. Not offensive, but nothing particularly special or noteworthy.

Smells like a bad clone of Lalique le Lion mixed with some Cool Water Then add a couple of kitchen spices amongst which curry.

Don't even bother sampling this.

The Sower by Edvard Munch

I was expecting anything but not this powderbomb that a spray of this tuned into. If I was told this would be Love's Baby Soft Powder Edition, I would think "Oh, yes ... wow. Each to their own, I guess!"
Coming from CdG this smell surprises me, as I find it very, very, very conventional.
Alas, i don't like it, but lovers of baby powder scents could find a new holy grail here. The sillage is quite heavy.
Still: weird!

metallic gold smell, pretty artificial but nice... a must have for all this house's hardcore fans!

My personal bias dictates 888 is hideously offensive, nauseatingly rich and cloying, and smells like an 80 year old woman. It may be interpreted as smelling like "gold," IF you hate gold, and the aforementioned "gold" has a tendency bludgeon and suffocate you when in its presence.
Trying to be (more) objective, it smells like loudly amplified and obtusely generic floral, and synthetic saffron (neither note is one I would actively seek in a fragrance). I have never been repulsed by any fragrance in the way I am repulsed by 888; I dry-heaved upon smelling it, and that's NOT an exaggeration.
While I love MANY of CDG's releases, and consider them a house of multiple masterpieces, I feel they proverbially crapped the bed by releasing this.
Of course everyone has different tastes/opinions, but I see no redeeming value in this towering abomination.
Moving on...
