I had decided to purchase Elizabeth Arden Co. Red Door after smelling it on my mother and grandmother. Wow, it smelled so wonderful on them. It was a bit on the floral side. It smelled more florally on my mother, and more powdery on my grandmother. The longer they had this perfume spray on the better it smelled. My grandmother had always swore by this fragrance and had gotten my mother hooked on it right away.

I chose to make my purchase at a Pennies in the mall, near my area. I paid around $35 for the 1.7 oz Eau De Toilette Spray. The Red Door has a unique tendency to smell different on each person that wears it. I have smelled this on several of the ladies in church. It had smelled fabulous on them.
This Spray is said to contain a bunch of different fragrances, one that comes to mind and really sticks out happens to be the Red Roses, Sandalwood, amber, ylang-ylang, plum, and peach, among other scents as well.
Description of Bottle
The bottle itself is suppose to resemble a door. To me it just looks like a plain rectangular clear bottle with a dark orange spray. The top is very tiny and is a red plastic. When you remove the top, you will see the red plastic sprayer. It is a pump type of spray. It is not a constant spray, so you do not have to worry about spraying to much at one time. One or two pumps will be enough to last you for a couple of hours before needing to re-apply.
Right under the spray bottle itself is a red plastic cap covering the top of the spray. It has a Gold band around it with the Red Door name inscribed on it on one side, and Elizabeth Arden inscribed on the other.
Honestly, I must say that this scent must be all wrong for me. I hate it! On me it smells like some sort of yellow deodorant soap my husband's Grandpa used when he was alive. On me it smells very soapy, strong, and cheap. I just don't understand it?!?
I decided to wait an hour after I had first used this product before I decided that I really hated it. It still smelled very sweet, and like a poor choice in a deodorant scented soap. If It didn't smell so sweet on me, I bet it would pass for a men's deodorant. It was to strong.
I really love the scent of the Red Door on other people. It is very hard for me not to recommend this fragrance to others. I will say though, that before you purchase, I would ask for a sample to try before you buy. I didn't do that, and it was a mistake for me.
This bottle will eventually be given to my mother. I have used it about 5 times with disappointing results.
I find this to be a unique fragrance. Try before you buy, as some may not be able to pull this fragrance off.
