This 1986 fruity floral happens to be a personal favorite of a family member, so when I was presented with the chance to pick up a bottle with box for under $3.00, it was the perfect opportunity for me to sample a few full wearings.

Now, the purchase wasn't a cheap way to get her a gift. I've already gifted her with a big bottle before. This was for my collection and there's enough here ( 30ml. ) to get the gist of what makes this her go-to scent.

We all know the 1980's were indicative of "big". Excess seemed to be the order of the day whether it was hair, fragrance or even spending. Liz Claiborne however, only represents that quality in the reflection of listed notes. It's chock full of them as you can see, yet isn't overstated on presence, sillage or longevity. There's even a moist quality inherent, for the life of the scent that embellishes the composition. Liz Claiborne is a legit fruity floral that some will undoubtedly gravitate to, while others will eschew. It's like any other fragrance in that respect. After wearing this numerous times, I can find nothing negative about it. I was hoping it would transition away from the "fresh cut green" aspect and evolve into a woody amber more than it does.

Liz Claiborne embodies young,green stem and fruit while encompassing the aroma of a white bouquet. It's certainly pleasant enough and the Freesia is enjoyable in the opening accord. I really wish it wouldn't bog down like it does in the heart and pass the baton to a comforting amber and sandal. I can only guess it's tuned to emphasize what it does and on my skin, Liz is White, Green and the suggestion of Peach.

Sillage is moderate with longevity approximately 3-4 hours on my skin with healthy sprays. Neutral rating from Aromi with a strong suggestion to sample before purchase.
