When creating this fragrance, originality was voted out of the room in the first round (if it was ever there). Beauty went out in the second round. Then the creative sorts raising a fuss were dismissed. What was left was a consensus group of image makers and their accountants, beaming over pink banal odors vetted by cost.
A harsh peony-like jasmine/pear with a chemical sillage. This one really speaks to a target-audience focus trying to slide in and profit off a trend.
But, we've heard this story before, so...
Like sparkling rose water,like champagne in the flute of a fairy queen.embrace your feminine mystique when you bask in the delightful aroma of IDOLE.a fruity floral perfume with just a touch of mystery.
It havea bubllegummy breeze,soft fluffy haze.for those days you do minimal but noticeable makeup and pair your favorite jeans with wedges or simple pumps.off the shoulder top is soft silk like fabric that flows around you effortlessly.this EDP seems perfect to pair it with and feel absolutely beautiful and content in your own skin.
Sweet pear and bergamot top notes dance with delicate rose and jasmine heart notes for an inviting fragrance that captures attention,while rich yet soft vanilla base notes enhance the aroma on the dry down,drifting delicately through the air as you walk past.
In fact the opening feels bright,fresh and "round",it kisses you,but then it's "pointed",it pinches so it feels a little uncomfortable.at the end is soft and velvety.pear almost always feels cheap to me in a perfume.it's always synthetic and feels immature.
It's a great scent for the wiman who appreciates simplicity but wants something that's maybe on the more sensual side of the spectrum when the sun goes down.feels like a Parisian lady walking true this romantic city in autumn.
Totally nothing special but beautiful as of it's purenees, simplicity and feminine vibe. sometimes you just don't want anything more,but a fresh and easily wearable scent.Longevity 5 hours on my skin and sillage can be overwhelming at first,so use caution.
Lancôme call this a white chypre, and apparently, it contains : jasmin, and four different types of rose - which have been extracted in three different ways - and sourced from two different places. And that's not all, it has magical properties too; it will help each woman 'become her own idol' and reveal her aura, her "glow".
That's as maybe; to me it smells like an aggressive fruity floral of peony and pear that's been loaded up with synthetics. In fact it does a pretty good impression of the clogging stench you get from laundry tabs.
So, with feelings of trepidation, I uncapped the decant and scraped a modest amount on my chest. Three and a half hours later, and I honestly can't tell if my aura has lit up but I can report a pain in the nose.
The expected rose impression is what I get from the start: a rose, clean, bright and without any hints of leaves or stems. A bergamot with touches of a berry-like undertone provides additional brightness.
Later on a fruity side is more emphasised. It is based mainly on a pear note, and by now it has established itself as a sweet composition, but not overly cloying on me. Towards the end a jasmine is evident too, but it never really succeeds in taking on a leading lose in this olfactory ensemble.
I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.
Obviously this spring scent was designed for aficionados of rose fragrances, but it is too generic and too egregiously synthetic to entice. The laboratory character is too blatant and there is a lack of sufficient creativity to compensate for this. 2.5/5.
