Arpege ;I as young child remembering my oldest sister wearing this fragrance it smelt so soft ,clean elegant .She wore it all the time at the age of 16 until her death at 29 .It was her signature fragrance that Ill remember forever she purchase it on vacation in Europe with her boyfriend at the time; which became her husband .And I always loved and remembered how delicate the scent was when she would get into the car when we would pick her up at the airport to visit us back home in Pennsylvania .Um so glad its still available to purchase .And I know Ill love wearing it as much as she did .
Arpege is a lovely, elegant, and sophisticated fragrance. Wear it whenever you want to feel special but yet appropriate for any occasion. I always receive compliments when I wear it. My go-to fragrance. Lingering but not overwhelming. The perfect fragrance.
This has an usual scent. I have over 80 scents and this one is difficult to categorize. I like it a lot but am not drawn to wearing it much. I can't believe I'm going to say this, but it is over powering. (I didn't think that was possible as someone who feels naked without fragrance) I can smell jasmine and it is quite predominate but difficult to identify because it is a complex scent, a lot going on. It's rich and I don't want to go so far to say it's old lady perfume, but defiantly mature. Sort of jasmine and spice. I usually bath in perfume, I have to put a tiny bit on or it starts to get to me. Nice but go easy putting it on....doesn't fade, VERY strong.
