Too strong, gives me a headache
this scent is very heavy and strong. it lingers for a long time. i have tried it a couple of times and each time I get a headache from it.
Oscar De La Renta Esprit D'Oscar
I loved it
I did not like this scent, it is not my style. It is too strong for me. I like a lighter/softer scent. This one kinda reminds me of an old ladies perfume. Sorry.
It smells like aquanet
No offense. My Mom loves the scent its an evening wear to me. Its a bit strong, and over whelming as I am more of a light floral girl but it doesn't smell bad just a heavy smell. More like date night after a long hot day.
Sexy and fun
This was a surprise. I was not expecting the way this fragrance came out. I love Oscar de la Renta fragrances and this one is no exception. This is perfect for date night. When you wear it, it instantly makes you feel beautiful and sexy and your SO may not be able to start away from you. The notes of jasmine and tuberose really shine and i just felt absolutely lovely wearing it.
A more older crowd.
I gave this sample to my mother....it's a fragrance that goes better with her generation....unless your the type of girl who likes a stronger deeper scent....if so this scent has your name on it.
This fragrance smells so nice! Whenever I wear it I have people stop me and ask what perfume I’m wearing. I love it!
I really liked this scent. A hint of sophistication, glam, and sexy all in one!!!
It was so strong and smelled like a cross between baby powder and hairspray. It is going in the trash.
Its a bit powdery
There was something about this perfume that reminded me of baby powder.
Liked it but didn't love it.
This fragrance was very nice. If there is anyone out there who wants a very light fragrance, this is for them. I like to wear it to work so I don't offend anyone.
Oscar de la renta
It was to stronge!!
Not my best one
I didn’t like the scent. It’s not for me.
I did not care for this frangrance at all!! It smelled precisely like Aquanet hairspray. The first time I tried it, it smelled like I was backstage at a high school show choir contest!
Brings back memories
Oscar for Women was my very first "designer" grown-up fragrance back in the 80's. I had high hopes for Esprit D'Oscar and it did not disappoint! Very similar to Oscar, but not the same. This fragrance is light and feminine, you wear it, it does not wear you.
Did not like this scent.
Nice powder scent
I enjoyed the scent, it’s nice for work. Clean and sophisticated
smells like my grandma
this scent smells like a powdered old lady and it is disgusting.
A bit sweet for me, got used to it after a while. Scent is not intensive after some time.
Not what i thought
I dont like this 1. I was really rooting for it. But i just cant wear it.
Not for me
This reminds me of my grandmother. While I loved her, I don’t want to smell like her... I have yet to receive a scent that I actually like! Does the scent quiz just not work?
If u want to smell like an old lady then sure - very powder smelling and just not a fun scent at all - : (
Oscar de la rental is one of my favorites. This sent is so soft and pleasant i would definitely give this as a gift.
Old and powdery, but in an elegant way.
At first whiff, this reminded me of my grandmother. Well not my grandmother per se, but surely somebody's grandmother. It was VERY powdery smelling, and that is saying a lot considering I tend to gravitate towards slightly powdery scents. It grew on me a bit after a few days of wear, and it started to make me feel like a classy middle-aged woman headed to the opera in her most expensive dress. Nice, yes, but only for special occasions. It doesn't quite fit my laid-back everyday style.
At first I wasn’t sure about this fragrance. The lemon is a little strong at first but then the jasmine kicks in. After the second day I grew to love it
The scent is okay. I feel it is a bit too powdery. Fresh but very powdery.
Sweet and lovely
I love this scent. It is sweet and somehow comforting. I’ve been wearing it everyday. I don’t think it smells like baby powder at all. It pairs well with Sweet Pea lotion from B&BW
Not for the faint of heart
A lovely fragrance. Unabashedly feminine if perhaps a little in your face about it. A grown-up scent for a woman of class. A bit powdery and the staying power is amazing. Skin misted with Esprit will last all day, and on a sweater..it will last through a washing ;). I have to have the right mindset and mood to reach for this one, not an everyday fragrance for me.
Not for me
Had a pleasant smell at first, but I felt like once I smelled it again while wearing it that it just had a lingering stuffiness that was too strong.
I love this one. It’s fresh smelling I do really enjoy it
I didn’t not like it!
Was not crazy about it. It reminded me of a sent of an old lady
I loved the scent. It was perfect for everyday wear.
I love this sent...
The smell is beautiful. One of the best scents I've had in a long time...
Yes, I have loved both of my perfumes that I have received 💞
Love this one
I get complement all the time with this one. Would get it again and again.
Not my cup of tea
I desperately wanted to like the s scent but it didn't blend will with my body chemicals. Smelled overly perfumey... almost like a pinesol floor cleaner, but a special scented kind.
Light and sweet
Perfect for every day use
Not my cup of tea
I love Scentbird. This one has been the only one I wouldn't use. I gave it to my Mom in law. A bit like what a grandma may like ( no offense ). Too heavy.
It's a VERY mature scent, and way too heavy, despite it smelling so much like baby powder. Baby powder belongs on babies. Not grown adults. Ugh. It lingers...
Smelled like an old lady perfume. Not for me at all!! Too strong.
Oscar we la rent a esprit d'oscar
It smells bitter and like chemicals. It is awful.
It is a lovely scent. Doesn't last very long, though.
Very sexy scent!
I love this scent but it is strong in musk. I definitely only wear this scent in the evenings out instead of an every day scent, but it is very sexy and sensuous.
Not delivered yet, finally got it
Love this scent, love love love..worth waiting for I wish I could write a review but I can't as it has not been delivered yet and the customer support I have received has been less then stellar and is making me question whether or not to keep my subscription
Don't care for at all
Very powdery smelling. Not for me.
This smells like fancy baby powder.
I can't wear this. I put it on and my 7 year old son said "why do you smell like a baby" Wow, I thought it was soft but like a baby no thanks.
Sadly, not for me
I was looking forward to my first Scentbird perfume pick however much to my dismay I was disappointed. It must be a popular perfume with the older set because it reminds me of sweet little old ladies. It is a strong long-lasting scent that smells like musky baby powder. I’m going to read the reviews before I choose my next scent!
Don’t like at all
This scent was not for me at all. It kinda smelt like a soap and I hated it!!
Very strong super Powdery parfum I ordered this one for my mom after sampling she went and bought a full size bottle from Marshall’s store for 24.99$ , well I guess next perfume definitely will be for me
When (more than one) coworker entered my office, they stated "it smells like baby powder in here." Ugh.
Nicd but strong
The smell is okay, it's really sexy smelling to me but is a little overpowering so a little goes a long way. Definitely not for everyday use but perfect for date nights.
Smells like a grandma. Not a good recommendation for someone who likes the Burberry.
I do not like this scent at all. One spray was WAY overpowering and has too much floral scent for my liking at all. It sort of reminds me of that sweet little old lady that wears too much little old lady perfume. And I thought maybe it was just me not liking it, so I asked my mom, sister and niece to all try and none of them liked it either...too strong for any of us.
Musty not Musky
I wish I had read the reviews first :( This is for sure an old lady scent. And honestly, I probably wouldn't wear this in my 80's either. I tried to select based on the "notes" I usually like but I got it wrong. I haven't even worn it because I don't like how it smells directly from the bottle.
I don't like Oscar Dr La Renta smells OLD!!! Hate It
Didn’t like this fragrance at all!! Smelled like old lady’s perfume.
This scent is fresh, floral and sweet. It smells like soap or some type of cleaner. I feel like it is best for older women or it should be worn when you are going to the gym. I am not a fan of this scent but I don't hate it either. I think the violet and heliotrope are too strong and clash with the other notes.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this fragrance! It starts of somewhat floral, then goes a bit sweet, then transitions into light and powdery- which I adore! This is perfect for this time of year! Not too sweet, not too heavy, not just right! This has been my favorite so far.
The perfume was a little strong scented.. I like smooth..but it is ok
Too strong of a scent for me. I like the flors scent better by the this company.
I hate this fragrance and can't fathom why I picked it to begin with. It smells like baby oil and old woman.
I do not like this perfume, and i like musk. It smells very “old lady” ish. I wouldn’t even give it to my grandma, because she is way too cool to smell that bad.
I do not like this fragrance. I’m not sure what it smells like to me, maybe the old lady that sits by me in church, but it turns my stomach.
I like it. I'm don't try new scents often. Since being a teenager I've stuck to 3 scents. In my 30's now so trying things out. I like that it's not too heavy and that it has some notes of baby powder. I'll be asking for a big bottle on my anniversary.
Totally agree with everyone else that it smells HEAVILY of baby powder. Didn't go away. Had to cover it up with another floral fragrance. Hated it.
I love this fragrance. I would consider this a classic scent, not an old lady scent. Everyone knows that it will not smell the same on a person as is does smelling straight from the bottle. Each persons body chemistry is different so I would encourage you to try it on before making a decision. On me it smells wonderful and my husband loves it.
Love this fragrance, not heavy and can be worn daily. I will order a big supply of this when available.
My Oscar De La Renta Esprit d'Oscar is a strong beautiful scent I would wear for a night on the town to leave a intoxicating smell everywhere I went.
This smells lovely in the bottle, but the moment it made contact with my skin it had a strange baby powder smell. Having cared for someone in hospice before, the scent (on my skin) reminded me of some of the fragrance that is used in home hospice personal care products. However, I can see how this would work with someone who has different chemistry than I!
I didn't like it at ALL. Didn't fit at all if what I normally wear. Don't really know how from what I told them I normally wear. They would send me this scent. Can't even give it away.
I really do not like this scent. I sprayed it on myself a couple times one night and that was the only time I wore it. It reminded me of something my Nana would wear. I really dislike it, and am really disappointed and wish I could just send it back since I only squirted it twice and it's been sitting in its shipping container since. I would not recommend this scent.
Very strong scent. Didnt like that it smells like heavy powder. Kinda disappointed!
Kind of disappointed. Smells like a dog shampoo or baby powder. :(
kind of disappointed. Smells like a dog shampoo or a baby powder.
it smells pretty old lady ish kind of like baby powder i am not really a fan
I did not like this scent, it had a baby powder odor to it.
I think it's a pleasant smell just not for me. It is definitely for an older sophisticated lady.
Not happy with this scent but happy with my first scentibird because it was so easy and I carried it with me. I gave it a fair try even though I didn’t like this powdery scent at first. Sadly, it didn’t grow on me either. Very old lady who wears baby powder scent.
Horrifying. I'm not even being overly dramatic. I spritzed it once and tossed it in the trash. Immediately. If one of my friends wore this, I would not be their friend anymore LOL. Do not wear this perfume.
I was not happy with this one. Smelled powdery and kind of like an old lady. I asked my coworkers what they thought and they said I smelled like their grandma....
Mmm no es lo que esperaba huele a talco. Pero boy a seguir tratando otros😊
Love the fragrance and smell on my skin.
This fragrance is very powdery. The scent is reminiscent of my great grand mother’s perfume. Very cloying. Yuck! The original Oscar de la renta scent is much nicer.
Too much like a grandma's perfume! Barely touched it!
This is similar to Oscar de la Renta from the 1980's, but better. Exquisite in my opinion. Very sweet and powdery as it has heliotrope and tonka bean. I am an older lady but not elderly and I think it is a respectful nod to it's predecessor but lighter & joyful with the bergamot note. Even my daughter in her 20's thought it was very nice.
Smells like baby powder. I don't like it.
When I wear and smell this fragrance, I mean business. Esprit de'Oscar has a bold, woodsy fragrance with a hint of floral. Plus, the scent lingers longer after you first put it on. Love it!
Very nice old lady fragrance! I lurve it!
Very lovely oriental floral. Not as loud as the original Oscar, has a heliotrope/violet/iris vibe that kind of reminds me of classics like Apres L'Ondee or L'Heure Bleu but more modern. Very nice fragrance, I'll be getting a full bottle.
Did note like it. It was to floral for me. I'm waiting for September's, and I hope it's better.
Smelled old & dusty.....couldn't stand it after one spray
I did not care for the August scent.
Too pungent, not sweet and floral like I usually like my perfume.
Con-Scent was too strong and reminded me of the 90s. Pro- 2 spritz on my wrist and scent lasted all day Not my style and won't be purchasing
Too strong with a powdery smell to it. Not my style.
Awful. Smells like my grandma. But my grandma didn't like it.
I wish I liked this smell, but it was too powdery smelling and old lady-ish
I am a old woman and I wouldn't wear this! The smell just keeps lingering and I feel sick. I'm going to go scrub it off before I upchuck. It's funny, I like his other perfumes but this one is a complete no go.
Excellent for evening outings and dates with my husband. He loves the scent, and he has a sensitive nose.
powder smelling... didn't care for it
The scent wasn't bad, it was just a very sweet smell. Almost sickening to the stomach. In addition, the scent does not last the entire day, well, through a work day. Overall, it is an okay scent. I appreciate the opportunity to try it before I actually purchased it. I would have been disappointed.
This was my first one and I was definitely disappointed. I chose it because the of reading the description. It did not smell bad, but my first thought when I smelled it was an old lady. I wish I had read reviews before because most of them say the same thing. I've asked my co workers and some friends and they all agree it smells like a powdery old lady.
I wish I had read the reviews before I chose this perfume as my first month. This perfume smells like a 97 year old woman. My boyfriend told me he felt like he was hanging out with his Nana. I sprayed it once and immediately regretted it. It's been sitting in the package ever since. I'm afraid it ruined my carrier. Don't do it.
I'm really sad I paid for this scent. It's really strong. Like one squirt is too much. And it smells like the old ladies who used to force hug me at church growing up. Even my boyfriend commented that I smelled like his grandma one day.
Was not able to enjoy it. Love the smell ,but my sprayer broke and leaked all over my car. My car smells good. I would buy it.
Up until now I have always enjoyed the scent that O have been sent wheather it was something I selected or it was something that was just sent to me. But the Espirit of Oscar was horrible, either it was old or it just really a bad smelling perfume. I don't enjoy the perfumes that I receive. Hope next month will be better.
I love this fragrance! The first two I got were just okay but I would definitely order more of this one.
THIS PERFUME IS DIFFERENT THAN WHAT I AM NORMALLY IN TO. BUT THE SWEET SMELLING SCENT GOT ME. I LOVE THIS PERFUME AND WILL DEFINATELY BE ORDERING IT.
Not for me .. Smell more like for older lady .
It was a nice scent, however it wasn't something that I would wear. Like another reviewer wrote, it feels like an old lady perfume.
I really wanted to like this fragrance, as I love the original Oscar De La Renta...but this just doesn't do it for me. The scent reminds me distinctly of underarm deodorant...or an old lady's perfume.
like this one a lot hope to buy big size
Unfortunately this is not for me. It reminds me of something a lady in her 60's or older would wear. Worst part is this is my 1st order, now I have to wait another 30 days to hopefully get something I like.
I really like this scent! A few squirts is all you need....It is a very classy scent and lasts all day.
this was horrible..It lingered even after scrubbing it off, making me sick to my stomach. I disliked this scent very much!
It smells kind of like baby powder, which I love with a hint of musk.
It is a scent for a more mature lady.
The smell of this was horrible. It smells of old ladies and was so strong, it was impossible to get off.
This was the worst perfume I've received so far. It is strong, smells of baby powder, and reminds me of old ladies. I couldn't wash it off fast enough.
Love it, used it years ago brings back good memories.
I love this scent. It's light and something I would wear every day. A little goes a long way with this one, so don't over spray :) I'm wondering if that why some people hate it?
TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE... reminds me of old ladies!!! I thought i was gonna have to cut my arm off to eliminate the smell :-(
I love it so much 1 spray and it last so long i love it
Hmmm....I didn't like this perfume at all! Makes me want cancel Scentbird because I am afraid 😳 of what they are sending next
I could not stand this scent. Has an old lady smell to it. Made me feel like I couldn't breathe when I put it on.
Was not what I expected from Oscar De La Renta. Was just ok.
I love my Oscar de la Renta perfume smells so good . Thank you scent bird
It has nostalgic memories for me. I wish I liked it better on me, but it tends to turn to a sweet vanilla scent which I don't enjoy... still I like it
This scent is one of my favorites now. I love having this subscription
I really liked this month's choice.
I was not particularly impressed by this scent. It was no bad just not for me.
Smells like some type of bug stay
This is horrible. Too musky, smells like old lady.
I really like this perfume. Smells so good. Only thing I didn't like was the shipping, took way longer than it was supposed to and it was damaged. Was leaking. ..Hope the next one's better. This was my first order. ♡
I really like this perfume. It's for a fresh scent almost like freshly washed clothes. It reminds me of a shower fresh/baby powder order. It's a delicate smell yet very strong. I'm complemented on it all the time.
It wasn't a bad scent, but not a favorite. I actually gave it to my mom. Definitely has an Older smell to it. Belive it or not, I was kind of reminded of the lavender scented baby powder. First one that I've gotten that I wasn't a fan of. Still love this company though!
I did not like the scent at all. Smells like an old lady
i did not really like the scent!! Maybe next month will be better>
Espirit d'Oscar is was awful! I don't like flowery smells and this smelled like a flowery mans Cologne! I thought I was pretty specific with my taste in perfume. My absolute favorite perfume is OPIUM!! And by the way, I still haven't received it yet after 3 months... Whomever chose "Espirit d'Oscar" for my May selection obviously didn't review my specific taste preferences. This is the second choice in a row that wa suggested for me, that I have given away, because I will NOT use them! This is discouraging...
I loved this perfume. I got a lot of compliments from strangers saying that I smelled really good. Even my daughter said that it smelled really good and wanted to wear it to school.
I like the smell it is like a sweet and flirty smell.
I hate this scent. I walked around looking for what smelled like cat flea spray, and it was this perfume.
honesty not what I expected. It smells like house spray. It has the old lady smell to it
Did not like this scent. It stinks. I will never purchase this again.
It was horrible, the worst I've ever had
Did not like it at all. It made me feel sick.
Didn't like it!!!!! It smells like hand soap from Dennys
This fragrance was just not one that I can enjoy.
DID NOT LIKE THIS PERFUME SMELLED LIKE BLACK PEPPER
I didn't like this one it made me smell like an old lady it was really strong.
Very light, you can barely smell it. Not one for me
Not a good one...too strong...too grandma.
Love this fragrance. Elegant and classy.
I hated this selection. It smells horrible and when I spray it, I can't stop sneezing.
This scent was not for me. It was too musky and strong. I prefer a fresh, soft scent.
Didn't like this one. Too much of a powder smell for mine liking.
Very strong. It's for an older generation. Not for me
This is a powdery type of perfume, good for being soft and suttle
I did not like this fragrance. It made me sick feeling. I suppose it did not work well with my chemistry.
The scent is a bit strong at first but after a few minutes you simply smell elegant all day. I have a tough time finding a scent that will stay on my skin all day but this one works wonders.
While I like the scent, this is the third time I've received this particular one. I was under the impression that I would receive a different fragrant each month especially when I've listed quite a few in the queue.
I did not like this one I'm more on the sweeter side it wasn't compatible at all with my body.
Love this scent! It's lighter than I expected, which is perfect for wearing to work!
It is a nice, clean scent. I usually like sweeter scents but this one is very pleasant.
The smell is alittle strong at first but i like it
Awful. Reminds me of something an old lady would wear. Ugggg
I am happy up to today with their services. Five star
I applied a lot of this and my husband said he really couldn't smell it
Didn't like the smell, good thing it didn't last long at all.
Love this perfume! I've smelled it before and couldn't resist on getting it again. I would definitely recommend this perfume to anyone that likes strong perfumes. Thumbs up! 👍🏼👍🏼
My absolute favorite scent❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
It's a very mature scent. I prefer to wear to Church or to a business event. Reminds me of my grandmother.
I don't really care for this perfume it's very powderery.
Where can I find. I love this perfume.
I love this... Very long-lasting, smells like Charles of the ritz (a discontinued perfume from the 70's)... Soft, sweet, instantly makes you happy...
This has a very light powdery smell, something you could wear all the time.
Mature with a light powder smell dries down nice .doesn't smell great at first spray but becomes more complex. Smells like a perfume from my childhood .floral and powder notes.
no thank you, it reminds me too much of an older woman, and baby powder. But mainly old woman.
Not a fan. It smells like my grandmother
This scent is different and nice.
It's very light an fresh smelling very clean scent
I truly love this scent. It isn't too strong and it stays with you all day. My husband likes it too.
