No.461 River Gauge - Oriental Floral Women's

£18.00
Bottle Size

What mature women smelled like in the 1980's. The opening is fresh and powerful with the distinct aroma of aldehydes. The lemon note really boosts the aldehydic notes, creating a refreshing fresh out of the shower type of feel. The floral heart reveals a bouquet of roses, geranium, gardenia, jasmine, lily of the valley, ylang-ylang and iris. Because of that rose and iris partnership, the perfume's middle stage is softer and less sparkling. It's as soft as powder or a tad soapy, like floral scented bath products. The dry down stage is a showy oak moss, and there's also musk. All the notes down in the depths of the base can be detected but moss, musk and vetiver are the strongest accords. They help to prolong the life of this perfume - it's on you for almost 24 hours in one day. This is great for those who like aldehydic scents that aren't quite so strong as older classics.

Always loved Rive Gauche in the 80s. This perfume is very evocative of the era, a winner with me.

Ever since the reformulation of Rive Gauche happened I have missed the original. Now vegan, finding this fragrance is a double winner!

I loved Rive Gauche in the 80's and the new formula is weak in comparison. This Eden version is almost as good as the original...well done Eden x

I always loved Rive Gauche and always came back to it when bored with other scents. Then had to stop buying it when I became aware of the suffering behind beautiful fragrances. I'm delighted to have found the Eden version. It's perfect and exactly as I remember it. Thank you, Eden.

Being a recent vegan, I was keen to make sure that all products I was using were cruelty free. I had been wearing the original version of this for more than 20 years, it was my signature perfume and I was so sad that I would no longer be able to wear it. I came across Eden perfumes quite by chance and decided to give it a try without any faith at all that it would resemble my much loved original. I had visions of dodgy men with suitcases full of bottles of fake scent that smelled of washing up liquid! How wrong was I? The first spray from the bottle filled me with delight and was no different to what I have always worn. It lasted all day and was just amazing. I cannot tell you how pleased I am. I think I may even branch out a bit and try some of your others too. Thank you so much!
