Starts off with a faint citrus and orange blossom which they refer to as a linden lime blossom, but to my nose it's totally orange blossom.

There's iris and lilac, carnation and roses, jasmine, tuberose, ylang ylang, lily of the valley and even my favorite flower the magnolia blossom.
A magnolia plays it's note early on, blending beautifully with the soapy white floral arrangement.
The heart notes are Bulgarian pink violet, ylang-ylang, jasmine, Indian tuberose, peach, carnation and nutmeg.
The base is composed of amber, Tibetan musk, sandalwood, iris and vanilla. The nose behind this fragrance is Ann Gottlieb.2nd review, I have been wearing this a few days and the notes I pick up the strongest is Lily and Lilly of the valley. Lily and lilac notes stand out very much in this scent which is very nice and sweet.So, a total opposite of what kind of images this scent is supposed to evoke: luxury, style, wealth and elegance. It reminds me of the smell of a new glossy magazine when you just open it.During those days I intuitively bought this perfume (because of its name) just as an attempt to lift myself up psychologically. So maybe, that is the reason for my intense dislike of the lily-of-the-valley note particularly since it's very prominent in this scent. I don't think it lasts very long or is very strong and for a blind buy it was ok but I wouldn't buy it again. I'm perplexed by this because all I smell is synthetic watery notes.This is a mere dupe for Pleasures if someone could not afford Pleasures try this I looked up the batch code from my bottle and it’s a (2012) bottle this does last 12 plus hours with good sillage. This is a beautiful smell, 5th Avenue does smell very close too Pleasures but considering I hate Pleasures with a passion yet I love this I much prefer this beauty over Pleasures. Although i would consider it more of a day fragrance, it could be worn at night nicely too. I wonder about the rest if the flankers, there are so many. I detect a lot of lilac, which I love, plus other light sweet floral notes including lily-of-the-valley.They smells a lot like each other but I adore 5th Avenue it’s stunning. i wouldnt have ever tried this perfume if it was not sent to me along with a lot of perfumes in a perfume lot i got off ebay. Floral loving girls, you'll almost definitely love this. I took a second look at this I thought is was a bit old, I think it might be a bit heavy for a teen... My first thoughts were - proper champagne, the taste is how it smells, no bite, rounded edges, not overtly creamy as such. Have a look if budget requires you to be frugal, it's well worth it. If you just go by what the nozzle smells like you'll get a sharp aldehyde blegh... 5th Avenue isn't too sweet though, making it a perfect office scent.I wore the vintage original back in '96, '97 and '98 and think that there are some slight differences and tweaks.
