Scented Sundays #2

Like last week, this is a perfume I've had in my collection for years. I think it was the first proper grown up perfume I owned.

CERRUTI 1881 pour FEMME was created in 1995. I started wearing it when I was around 11 and I think thats why I love it so much, it reminds me of school and certain people. Its described as a woody floral but thats not how I would describe.

Olfactive Pyramid:
'Among the top notes the delicate femininity of mimosa, freesia and violet.
                  At the Heart, orange blossom and jasmine bring to mind the feel of linen on bare skin.
                               Woody base notes underline the sophistication of the fragrance.'
I cant stand jasmine and had no idea it was in this perfume untill I looked it up.

A confident woman with a free spirit, seductive with the promise of hidden sensuality.

CERRUTI 1881 pour FEMME is the type of scent that any age could wear and even though I was really young when I first discovered it, theres nothing childish about it. The scent is clean, reminds me of fresh bed sheets, getting out of the shower and babies (you know that lovely clean smell that babies have?) I swear I'm not a weirdo.

If you've tried this before what did you think? I love that no matter how much you douse yourself in this perfume its never an assult on the senses.
