JackTwist's Review of Knowing by Estée Lauder

This is a wonderfully old-fashioned scent, smelling like the latest it could possibly have been created would have been in the 1950s. It is a fragrant green floral chypre that is extremely well balanced. There is a big rose at the center, but it never screams at you, it only insinuates itself to support the other florals.

Top notes: Coriander, Neroli
Middle notes: Rose, Jasmine, Lily, Cardamom, Cedarwood, Vetiver
Base notes: Patchouli, Oak Moss, Honey, Musk, Amer, Civet

One of Lauder's finest and highly recommended.
