Lovely perfume. Purchased blind. I have worn Van Clef And Arpels First Perfume since college. I thought I would try another perfume from this brand. I loved the hints of flowers, not too sweet with warmth of some oriental spice and woodsy undertones. When I first tried it it reminded me of the perfume poison, but not as sweet and a more classic scent. I think it can be worn anytime. Layer it up for nightime use. I'm glad I took a chance. And, the design of that cap on the bottle is worth buying just for the beauty and uniqeness of the design. Stands out well on my perfume tray.
I have been using Oriens for many years now. It is such a beautiful scent, I always get compliments on it. Also Feerie, by Van Cleef is also another scent which is gorgeous. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Oriens of Van Cleef was a blind purchase, but I don’t regret at all. It’s a very sophisticated and astonishing fragrance, and when it fades it becomes even more interesting. A bit masculine, which I love very much because I like man’s fragrances and use my husband’s perfumes from time to time. The bottle is gorgeous. You won’t regret if you get it.
quite strong upon initial spray.. reminds me of calvin Klein euphoria although that is a little bit sweeter. This a blind buy and I am not disappointed. The patchouli on this is not too loud on me which is a good thing. Classy and sophisticated. Perfect for the fall and winter weather..
