This is my signature perfume. I have worn DESIGN for over 10 years and still love it. Now I wear other fragrances but I always come back home to DESIGN. I get alot of compliments on this fragrance especially from the gentlemen. It is so subtle but captivating (as one gentlemen told me). To me with all the thousands of fragrances out there and some that smell the same; DESIGN stands in a class all by itself. Try it...will you not regret it.
This was a 'blind buy' for me, and it is really difficult to give an honest review regarding perfumes, because they very often smell differently on different people. (Skin acidity, and even medications that people are on can change the fragrance). All I can say is that the initial smell that i get is a bit weird, almost medicinal.....but after about 20 minutes it started to change, and the fragrance became a little sweeter, but as didn't last very long on me either, I cannot say that I would buy it again. I am going to give it to a friend to try, and it will be interesting to see if it performs on her differently. As far as value goes....if it was better on me it would be good value for 3.4 oz, but as is i'm afraid that I have to say "no".
Every place I go, people ask what scent I’m wearing. I get compliments all the time. It’s the only scent that I have used since 1988. The reason is that it is not overpowering. It is a light scent flowery but a clean scent. I love it.
