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.
