Most Helpful Positive Review Classic. Good for many occasions.
Classic. First word that came to mind upon spritzing this perfume for the very first time.
The first thing I smelled was citrus. Then it quickly and seamlessly transitioned.
At the end, the floral of the gardenia with slight whiffs of Bergamot and Vanilla, stood out the most.
I would definitely err with caution by saying this perfume is more on the floral side of the spectrum.
The vanilla brings it back to earth, so to speak.
I am reminded of what another reviewer had posted, that it reminded them too much of an "old lady type perfume". I'm paraphrasing.
I understood that.
Truth be told, I immediately thought of old classics that my Nana and Auntie's would wear.
Perfumes that to this day evoke memories of childhood, growing up, hugs hello and goodbye, church on Sundays, family gatherings, sneaking squirts of perfume, or pops of perfumed powder when I visited.
But to me, I do not mind that this perfume is more of a classic sent. One that reminds me of these things.
What I like best is you could go heavy or strong with this fragrance. One squirt and you are ready for the day. Two or more, last you through a night- whatever you are choosing to do.
I easily see this perfume for pretty much any time of the year. Appropriate for just about any occasion.
This is definitely not a bright girly perfume. Nor is it heavy and cloying either.
If you are looking for one good classic smell, some thing a little more updated than Chanel 5, L'air du Temps, etc. definitely check this out!
Most Helpful Critical Review Pretty, but not outspoken.
At first whiff, this reminds me of the big, bombastic florals of the '80s and early '90s (think: just about anything Giorgio). This is probably owing to the prominent orange blossom note that permeates the entire composition. There's something sweet and decidedly feminine about it that brings a memory of Champs Elysées on a high school friend for some reason, even though I haven't smelled it in years. It's definitely got the cosmetics-counter-at-a-department-store vibe.
The sillage is moderate to subtle and the longevity is actually pretty impressive for something devoid of any darker resin/spice notes. I could still smell it on my wrist 6+ hours later. Overall, the fragrance just isn't terribly remarkable to me. Sweeter scents don't suit my chemistry at all. The innocuous white blossom profile is not what I would expect from Lady Gaga and a scent called "Voce Viva:" living/live voice. There's nothing particularly lively or outspoken about it, but it's pretty and wearable. I'm passing it along to a friend.
Note: The sample I received stated nothing about the sender or how it ended up in my mailbox. I had to do some googling to figure out it was from the Influenster parent company. Nothing on my dashboard indicated I would be receiving it. Oh well. A fun surprise!

This scent is so standard I feel like ever other scent i try smells like this. It is really sweet and candy like. Not a woman scent, more for a teenager.
