I was given First by my husband when it first came out and we were living on the East Coast. I have never found another fragrance to equal it - I absolutely love it - and hope I will never be without it. The cream/lotion/perfum etc. are all equally great! I have had a problem finding it recently and was thrilled that my daughter found FragranceX.com so that her Dad could do his usual "First" Christmas gift. We BOTH love it!

      Very pleased with this fragrance, it is exactly the same as the bottle that I have been saving from the U.S. purchased 30 years ago. Great price too - no need to get O.S. travellers to bring this back to Aussie anymore.

                First is a classic scent that exemplifies what excellent perfumery is all about. It is a rich and elegant and exemplifies the ornately beautiful composition of the famous french florals. It is not "fresh" or "girlish" but rather a scent for a sophisticated woman who expresses her impeccable sense of style with a very beautiful fragrance. A must for anyone who wants to smell gorgeous!
