As a perfume developed at the dawn of the 1980´s Baruffa, has a strong character typical of her genre, yet to me, this perfume is softer and more refined than many floral powerhouse types of its day. Baruffa has a JOY quality for sure, and an herbal quality and a powder sweetness. Rose is there, as is jasmine, together quite centrally. The opening presents some pleasing greens. Many floral lovers may well really like this. I like it too. Tiny bit sweet for my personal liking, but nice all the same.
