I love this perfume - it's probably one of my favorite scents ever made by Yves Rocher. I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with them, though. I love them because the scents are timeless, classic, and not overpowering. Ispahan for Women is no exception - the scent is slightly musky, sweet, and not overly floral. It's definitely a very "warm" scent, much in the same way that Shalimar is. I wouldn't say that I "hate" anything by Yves Rocher, but I live 900 miles from home and this perfume always makes me think of my mother, which in turn is very bittersweet. It's an evocative fragrance, for certain, which is what makes it so good I suppose.
