This is a very nice perfume. It is a little old school and a little goes a long way. I would describe this as a special night time ocasion scent. It is very "classy" Its mature but it does not have a "Old church lady smell" I would not suggest this for anyone under 25. If you wear a small amount on a day that is not hot and humid (I still say its a night time scent) this is very pleasant. I found bottles at a local discount store for $2 each, i love the little .8oz bottles (very vintage looking) so i bought 2. I really thought at $2 it would stink but i was pleasantly surprized! I sprayed it and my sister was like "oh that smells good" This fragrance last a LONG time too. In fact i was going to give 1 away but when I smelled it i decided to keep both lol. I think many of the Victoria Vanderbilt fragrances can be described as classy. Also the .8oz bottle is just so pretty and classy its its design, i cant wait to sit it out on my dresser.

I gave this a few tries when it came out (90's), but it was too discordant and odd to befriend.

The sensation (not the actual smell) of wearing this reminds me of a very old afghan my grandmother made-- thick yarn but so loopy (literally) you would get hot and cold at the same time.

Now, looking at the notes of V, it makes sense. That odd pairing of honey (warm) with the airy coolness of the water lily with very little to link them--Holy Afghan, Batman!

I do have a vague memory from the 90's it reminded me of cooked red cherries. A smell I always liked... I understand the reference of beer... I found some on eBay for cheap along with some other 90's nose memories... I'll give it a try. I have no idea if its a smell I'd like to wear now... But just for the flashback I'm going for it!

Update! I finally got a bunch of "retro" 1990's pop pharmacy perfumes that I remember from my teenage years. ( I wish I could find Tribe by Coty again! )
V was among them. I did recognized it as soon as I sniffed it : Cooked red cherries! I made my husband sniff too and he agreed (he is not a perfume guy). It's also a bit sweet for my taste, but I really love the cooked red cherries smell, so, I might feel like it someday! I used to dislike popular perfumes in the 90's, but I guess now that I dislike even more the current popular ones, I love them again for the nostalgia....

This is a very weird floral fragrance. I agree with the beer thing. However, give it a few minutes or so and it becomes this gorgeous champagne-y floral that is so fresh and uplifting.

I will wear it. I just can't shrug the feeling that it kinda reminds me of being at the dentist's clinic. It is really weird but not bad at all.

a cheerful citrus. loud and obnoxious, absolutely nothing softens the explosion of top notes. I haven't smelled this in 20 years, but I can still remember its desperation.

I found the notes listed on another site:
essences of freesia, mandarin and jasmine. Blended with notes of ylang-ylang,amber and sandalwood. The sillage & longevity are moderate.
I agree it does smell a bit like beer. = (

To me it is a bit mossy, honey in the middle and some light flower on top. Not so bad.

It's a strange scent...bitter, flowery, citrusy at the same time. I agree with falovalo, it does smell a little like beer. I guess it does not agree with my chemistry.
