I agree totally with the earlier reviewers. It does not smell at all like the perfume I had in the very early 80s. I bought that bottle at I. Magnin's, which is no longer in business. When I saw it here I was happy to know that it was still available; but when I got it, I was shocked at the smell. It definitely was NOT the same. This newer scent is way too strong, to the point of being overpowering.

This Secret of Venus is not at all like the oil I had in the 70's. I don't know what this is that I purchased but I don't care at all for the fragrance. I emailed /called you to try to return it and I never did receive a response. Please don't try to pass this off as Secret of Venus. You must have never had the joy of smelling the original oil of this lovely perfume.

I, too, wore Secrets of Venus years ago, the oil based fragrance by Zibiline. I always got compliments on it and it was my favorite. This is what I am basing my review on. This new version does not cut it. Is there anywhere to get this oil based perfume anymore? I was heartbroken when I could not find it and have not found anything quite like it.

The oil I purchased at least 30 years ago was Zibilene (Secret of Venus) - I have about a half of a bottle left. Everytime I put it on, people will stop me and ask where I purchased this wonderful cologne I have on; they say it smells delicious. Sad to say I can no longer find it anywhere. It would be wonderful if I could get an address even in France as to where I could purchase it. Thank you and hope to hear from someone!

I worked in upscale ladies ready to wear, mgt, for thirty years and Secret of Venus was my signature scent because I loved how it smelled and one good spritz would last an entire 12 hour shift. This is not the same fragrance, not even close and a heavy spritzing lasts maybe two hours. It can only be decribed as a watered down knock off and terribly over priced for what it really is.

I have worn Secret De Venus for almost 50 years. It never failed to draw compliments. HOWEVER, the "new and improved" doesn't resemble the original at all! It is HORRIBLE, a complete waste of money and is little more than colored water!! I will never buy it again and if you are a dedicated Secret fan...don't even bother! It is NOTHING like the original. I give it an F!!!!!

I wore Secret of Venus Oil when I was very young. I was hoping to recapture what I remembered but I was very sadly disappointed. Not that it is your fault but this is not at all what I remembered. This smelled like old lady to me and not the subtle fragrance of before. I sold tons of it when I worked in a drugstore but this is not the same stuff.

I bought a bottle of the perfume/bath oil Secret of Venus years and years ago and I use it sparingly as a perfume and once in a while for the bath. It is divine and seriously alluring but not overly sweet -- at least on me. I always thought the name appropriate. That said, I always worry when a perfume is "updated" and given the reviews of this newer version it doesn't sound the same. :(

My uncle used to bring this back from France for my mother, the small bottle of essential oil, which I can't find anymore, but this is the scent - it was her special perfume & now it's mine. When I spray it on, I always remember my mother.
