I looked up the scent notes for the Gaultier "Classique" and the Fendi "Palazzo" and here's what I found:
From the Macy's website describing "Classique": "... the tenderness of Rose and the spicy freshness of Star Aniseed at the top, the sweetness of Orange and Ginger at the heart, and the caressing aroma of Vanilla and the sensuality of Woody Amber at the base."
Vanilla, huh? Well, that explains the candy smell!
From Women's Wear Daily: Fendi Palazzo "is a flowery-woody scent", and the notes include mandarin orange, bergamot, lemon, pink pepper, orange blossom, jasmine, Bulgarian rose, patchouli and Gaiac wood."
Ah ha: Patchouli! One of my favourite fragrances! Well, I guess that explains why I ended up changing!
