Beautiful is a floral fragrance that was launched in 1985.
This is a romantic light bouquet of a thousand flowers, combined with fresh citrus notes in the top and warm woodsy notes in the base.
The top notes include rose, mandarin, lily, tuberose and marigold.
The intensive floral heart is sweet, consisting of orange flower, jasmine and ylang-ylang.
But all the notes are so well blended, they produce something that you can wear at any time of the day.
The first time I sprayed "Beautiful", I used a heavy hand and ended up with not just a headache, but a bit of heartburn.
Sorry for the walk down memory lane but when something is that Sentimental you have to cherish it forever as I do. I also wore Beautiful years ago, from when it first came out, in the mid-eighties, through the nineties. It's a completely different scent and for the life of me I can't fathom all the favorable reviews.
The sillage and longevity were impressive and the dry-down beautiful.
The key is to remember that a little goes a very long way with this one! I adore Beautiful and I could bathe in its greatness!! Longevity was 6/7 hours when it used to be 10 hour plus, the tuberose was much less strong, as well as the perfume lost much of what distinguished it.
I am wearing Beautiful as we speak it is so intoxicating staying power is incredible sillage is wonderful my bottle is from (2008), There isn’t a scent in the world that comes close to vintage Beautiful. I received a 10 ml decant of a Keme perfume callled Gorgeous, supposedly based on Beautiful and gave to her.
The base notes are warm and elegant and include sandalwood and vetiver.
The fragrance range includes perfume, Eau De Parfum, Eau De Toilette, a bath and body line and several limited editions.
