This is gorgeous. Very softly spicy – and overall very soft. Also warm and beautiful. Mandarin in the top notes is noticeable and sweetly refreshing. Later it fades into beautiful slightly spicy-powdery vanilla. Beautiful, beautiful "my skin, but better" kind of scent.

I love Cinema! It's soft, feminine, slightly powdery and sweet to my nose. The amber and vanilla are most prominent to me. Boyfriend likes it, too. I don't normally favor fragrances in this vein-- usually go for fresher scents, but I think that Cinema is incredibly pleasant, beautiful, calming, and elegant. Perhaps feels a tad mindless and trite but not more than a lot of mainstream scents. Beautiful, balanced, and uncomplicated. Great evening scent for a woman and possibly even unisex.

I had high expectations for this, as a former friend once raved about it. It's not for me.

Slight sour & bitter at first. Sparkling flowers follow. Peony, in particular. Light musk later. Slight benzoin. Not much else stands out. Short-lived on my skin, too.

2 stars.

Flowers and almond with the most elegant vanilla. Clean, classy, effective. Not cloying or sweet. Beautiful projection.

Soft, delicately sweet, musky vanilla with a hint of almond, and a whisper of cyclamen, I find this such a joy to wear. It lasts a good 8 - 10 hours on me, without ever being overwhelming.

Amber, White musks, Bourbon vanilla, Benzoin
That is a lovely opening: orangy vibes with a nutty almond undertone, a touch of fruitiness with cyclamen thrown in - quite characteristic and well thought out. The base is flowery, with a muguet-peony dyad dominant, and merging into a slightly boozy benzoin-dominated base of wood, musk and vanilla.

The performance is good on me with moderate sillage, good orojection and seven hours of longevity. Well-composed, a touch synthetic but not in a manner that interferes with its overall impression. 3/5
