I think it does, but it's probably just me. For some reason I really objected to that particular smell. Sort of a strong melon/floral scent. I'm usually okay with perfumed products. Have a whiff of it in store before you buy. It's actually a great foundation.
ELDW is not only orange, but harsh and unflattering. Clarins shades are lovely and flattering. The SA are really good about giving samples - definitely ask for samples and trial them carefully. I tested the Everlasting and it almost fell off my face, it transferred that easily. Disappointing! I love the smell and found it faded quickly.
If you don't have any luck with the Clarins there are lots of good long wear fdns around now that are much nicer & more flattering than ELDW - Bobbi Brown Long Wear (very good shade range) or the YSL Teint Resist (smaller shade range).
