I have worn "Knowing" since it came out in the late 80's. I was a teenager at the time and my Dad bought it for me for Christmas. Like the other reviewer, "classy mum", my Dad knew his scents, too. He always smelled good and the perfume he bought for his loved ones was always classy and had a great scent. I loved "Knowing" then, and I love it now. Then again, I love most of Estee Lauder's fragrances. I always get compliments whenever I wear it! Once again, echoing the words of the other reviewer, "classy mum", it's not a powdery, soft scent. It's an intense, woodsy, gorgeous scent! You don't need to spray a lot. I usually spray once on my neck and once over my shoulders on my back. Two sprays will do you for the whole evening/night.
I have been wearing Knowing perfume since before my son was born and he just turned 20. I am often told how good I smell I love telling them I "Know". Several time I purchased other fragrances but always went back usually because my son told me he like the way I already smelled. Right now I am rationing my minimal supply of the wonderful fragrance, I have been unable to work but I will make my Christmas wish list very easy to follow! The price is great compared to what I last paid for the large bottle, almost $20.00 ! So anyone that does not like theirs feel free to forward it to me!
