In the past year I have bought, swapped away and swapped for Champs-Elysèes. It's a love/hate relationship I have with this fragrance and it has to do with one thing - mimosa! Mimosa and I aren't such great friends I've come to realize after struggling with both Champs-Elysèes and Champs-Elysèes Too Much.
The notes in Champs-Elysèes are:
Top: Rose petals, mimosa leaves
Middle: Mimosa, buddleia and blackcurrant
Bottom: Woody note, vanilla
The mimosa is loud and proud when I first spray it, thankfully it goes away after a while. It's a fruity floral fragrance that smells more fruity than floral on my skin. It's a fresh rose scent that isn't incredibly strong. I smell hints of peach in here along with light almond.
Once I get past the mimosa, I love this fragrance and it's among my absolute favorites! This smells best in warm weather as an all day fragrance. Maybe in time I'll learn to get along with mimosa but until then I have to use my blow dryer to speed up the process of this fragrance.
Champs-Elysèes retails for $58/1.7 oz. at Sephora
but can be purchased for much less at TJMaxx and Sephora.
