A rosy lily perfume with a bit of acetone/nail polish remover on top. The acetone note, while intended as a source of CDG's signature weirdness, actually makes Vogue 125 feel a bit old-fashioned, as it calls to mind classic perfumes that used acetone in lieu of aldehydes.
It's not bad, but there's a blackcurrant note in there that gives a tinge of urine, which I don't like, and the whole composition is oddly thin in that way where it feels like it quickly fades, but when I spray a lot of it, hoping to smell it more clearly, the acetone haze burns out my nose and leaves me smelling even less. Frustrating and not really worth the effort, though not terrible.
Vogue 125 is a very green citric and spring floral accord with a dry base. The scent doesn't change much from beginning to end. I don't smell leather, but if you press your nose to the glossy cover of a fashion magazine, the thick clay coated paper smells like this perfume. The scent is unisex but leaning feminine. The green vetiverl and lily floral note is consistent from start to finish and changes very little. It is a very pleasant, clean, slightly bitter green floral scent that has a stylish attitude. Thumbs up!
kind of disappointing...was expecting something a little more daring, exciting and avant-garde from the CDG laboratories...yeah, there is a little taste of something like old photo film or glossy magazine pages...bottom line though, is that, this is just a fairly nice floral fragrance...don't really get much else out of this...flowers with a little background mish-mash of ink, vetiver, tobacco and leather all coated with flowers...nothing to write home about...
