Honest reviews


A polarizing scent. I’m on the negative pole.

This is a good price for the product, although if you live near a Marshalls or TJ Maxx, you can get a whole gift set for the same price as this 3.3-ounce spray. How do I know all this? Because I’ve tried to wear this fragrance. I’ve really tried to give it a chance. I like most of the old-school “heavy hitter” fragrances that many people find baroque, cloying, and dated (for example, Giorgio, Poison, Youth-Dew). But Red Door has something about it that jars my senses; something that makes me want to run for the hills and/or the barf bag. It has some individual notes that are lovely (rose, orchid, honey) but there is just too much going on at once in this fragrance. At least on my skin. Your mileage may vary.

Great Scent but……….

The problem with this scent is that its getting WEAKER AND WEAKER BY THE YEAR!!!!!!! I have to apply this three times a day now where back in the nineties I only had to apply it once and that was it. Im not spending my hard earned money on something that I have to use 3X as much to get the same effect of what used to be. Im not the only one who is noticing this WEAK AND WATERED DOWN VERSION OF PERFUME these days. Elizabeth Arden is trending this way with all the perfumes now. Someone noticed this in 5th Avenue perfume too! I will not be buying another bottle of this thats for sure. Good luck Elizabeth Arden, women do know the difference!!!!!!!

I closed the Red Door!

Red Door puts Poison & Giorgio to shame. One spray will do or it will announce your arrival before you.It opens with honey-drenched white florals. Morphs into a rose, just a bit soapy, eventually a bit powdery. Takes a long time to dry down. Pleasant & wearable for me … in about 2 hours.If you like extravagant florals, this one might be for you. I’m glad I opened the red door but I doubt that I’ll do it again. I’m gonna keep this red door closed. However, I love this version:Red Door Velvet By Elizabeth Arden For Women, Eau De Parfum Spray, 3.3-Ounce Bottle

Red Door Perfume – a MUST HAVE for all ages!!

Ever since buying this “Perfume” years ago I have had to have it daily! I’ll tell you why. Since I have been using this fragrance I have had nothing but fantastic comments from both ladies and men! No matter where I’m at – grocery store – furniture store – working at a golf Country Club etc. both men and women always comment how WONDERFUL I smell and then they have to know what it is that I’m wearing. Men that have asked me have actually written i t down so they could buy it for their wives! And women who ask want to buy it immediately too! I am not exaggerating. The other day I went into a Office furniture store to make a purchase. I was talking with the man who was taking my info. about a chair I was ordering and there was a lady who worked there sitting in the back of the room. I no sooner walk in the store and the lady says to me: “YOU SMELL SO GOOD!!! WHAT PERFUME ARE YOU WEARING?” I told her Red Door and she said ” I had that perfume before but it smells so GOOD on YOU! I am going to have to buy it again!!! Every single day that I am out and wear this perfume I get the same type of comments…ALWAYS!! And the way I look at it – as long as I get so many wonderful comments about it – there is no reason to buy or wear anything else! So this is my perfume of choice! Ladies – you MUST BUY IT! And MEN – if you want to buy a perfume for your ladies in your life – you CAN’T GO WRONG WITH RED DOOR! But it has to be the PERFUME – not the eau de toilette!! It’s the eau de toilette that probably doesn’t last as long because it’s not as strong as the eau de parfume! You just can’t go wrong with this perfume. Even my mother had to go out and buy it years ago after smelling it on me! I’ve been wearing it since my 30’s and now in my 50’s. It’s perfect for every age as far as I’m concerned.

My Mother Raved!

My mother and I went to the clothing store to select a perfume for myself, and we stumbled upon this perfume. She loved it so much she almost bought it herself, but decided not to because of the price. When I found it online I was so exited I bought it for her for a present. She was SO exited!She says it lasts all day and has a wonderful scent that I actually find comforting and soft. My father loves this as well. I know what to continue to get her! 🙂 Very good product.

Sweet Smell of Success

I love using this cologne. It has a strong, distinctive bouquet and one needs not use a lot. It keeps you smelling sweet and fresh all day long.

Recived wrong Item & can not return???

Mary UPDATE: This is my 2nd. time ordering and I received the wrong RED DOOR they sent me a bottle that is listed on AMAZON for $24.89 and it smells entirely different then the cologne that (I always purchase) that I have worn for more than 25 years. I can not send it back due to shipping requirements. I think AMAZON had better check out this company, nice way for this company to make money. I will buy my RED DOOR in a store from now on. I have been with AMAZON for quite a while and I will not put up with this any longer…Please do not buy from this company as you cannot be sure you are getting what you order and you cannot return the product. I will put this in the garage sale someday.Update: 09-26-2013 Well. Well, Well. This is a NEW PHOTO THE SELLER HAS PUT UP and this is what I received!!This is not what I ordered.BEWARE BUYERS FROM THIS SELLER… I can not believe this company has still not sent me the correct cologne that I ordered and paid for..

Love, Love this cologne. Would never wear anything else.

I love, love it !!! It is a wonderful cologne. Every time I wear it I get compliments on it and both men and women want to know what it is. I have worn this cologne for over 20 years and I never get tired of it. It’s one of the most wonderful scents you would always wear and want. It’s not too strong and the smell is to die for.Thank you Elizabeth Arden !! Keep up the good work. Please don’t ever discontinue Red Door.I want to thank you for your excellent service.M.L.P.

Mom is delighted by the price & I’m delighted it’s Prime eligible!

My mother has been wearing Red Door for years. Decades? Anyway, to me, the smell of Red Door reminds me of my mother and all of the good things that go along with that. This is one of those fabulous scents that can become a part of the fabric of your life. I associate the smell with holidays, birthdays and maybe even a night out at the casino. It’s demure, it’s soft, but it also has an underlying allure that is sure to please.As a retired military spouse, my mother has been buying the 3.3 ounce eau de toilette at the BX (Base Exchange) for around $30, and I understand that was often a good value for this fragrance in that volume. What a coup it seemed to find it here on Amazon for just over $23.00 and eligible for Prime shipping! I was able to purchase a bottle as a last minute birthday gift for my mother and have it on her doorstep within 2 business days.What makes this such an outstanding deal is the ability to get free shipping. Because Amazon ships it from their warehouse it can be combined with Super Saver Shipping, though you’ll need to add something else to your order to get to the $25 minimum threshold. If you’re a Prime member you don’t have to worry about reaching a minimum and you’ll enjoy the fast & free 2 day UPS shipping.This is an item that will stay on our list of favorites and we’ll turn to Amazon again and again whenever we need it.

Love This Cologne

I have been using this fragrance for several years now and I love it. Red Door by Elizabeth Arden and White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor are my two favorite colognes. I have to disagree with the negative comment on this product. I don’t feel that it is strong-scented at all. But of course with colognes and perfumes “a little goes a long way.” Any cologne that is “applied too liberally” will be strong and overpowering in my opinion.
