Rated 5 out of 5 by A classic I have used this perfume for many years and have often been complimented on the scent. I can recommend it as a classic perfume. John Lewis always has a tester on display so you can try before you buy. There are often special offers on the price, so look out for them. My husband now knows what to buy me for Christmas. 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favourite perfume at good price I have worn this perfume for more than 40 years, first bought it for my wedding day. I am always being stopped and asked "What is that perfume you are wearing?" This makes me feel special and it can be worn all day long. I always take the smaller size on holiday with me. Have bought it for Christmas presents for friends and they are all converts now. 31 October 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by A timeless classic I've worn this on and off for over 30 years and I still love it as much now as I did the first time I bought it. It's classy without being boring ! 28 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Useful size for handbag. Had a few welcome compliments on the Rive Gauche spray. Useful size for most handbags and very satisfied with the product considering I had decided not to indulge in my very favourite fragrance this time on cost grounds. 15 April 2015
