Rated 5 out of 5 by StGermain Great sultry scents
The store had testers for the peonie, rose, carnation and thistle. Since I am very finicky when it comes to fragrance, I was very surprised when I liked all of the scents, one right after the other! They all had a nice woodsy, sultry quality about them, which I do like in my perfumes. Just be wary of the cap. Maybe it was because of the abuse of being testers, but all of the chalky caps were flaking off and breaking a bit. But very pretty bottles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BridgetJones Can't beat the quality for the price!
I sampled Rose, Peony, Carnation, and Thistle. All of them smelled just like the notes described, which was really great. I didn't expect to love them all, but I did. For the price, you can't get perfumes that smell better than this. The bottles are gorgeous. I did notice the tops had chipped, but it's probably because they are just display bottles. But they are still pretty and unique even when chipped to the point where it wouldn't bother me. I tried them on several hours ago, and they are still plenty strong on my skin. No complaints about longevity. I think English Rose is my favorite. It's a very sweet rose. I like the minty green of the thistle. I liked the pink scent of the peony, kind of reminded me of sweet pea by Bath and Body Works, but better quality. And the Carnation perfume smelled a bit like vanilla and orange, sweeter than expected, my least favorite, but still nice. I don't think you can go wrong buying any of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by InSearchOf awesome and suprising
I've been looking for a perfume for a while that was like no other. I wanted a gentle smell, so whatever combination of scents that gentle smell came in I would buy, and I found it in the Hothoue Peonie. When I smelled it in the store it is suprisingly feminine, without the sharpe scents one usually finds in designer scents. This is like no other scent I have found. It has a rounder scent with a slight zing at the end. Also the price cannot be beat and the packageing is beautiful. You could not get half the amount in any depatment store for under $90 dollars.
