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!

    Comments about First By Van Cleef & Arpels:

    I have been using this particular products over the years but it is not available in Vancouver. It is light but yet very floral without being overpowering which most new fragrances are. It suits my skin chemistry and its powdery smells is extremely pleasant and does not upset any one working with me.
