3.6 out of 5
i hated it
Starts out way too citrusy but (at least on my skin) moved towards the spiced fruit, my partner and I both agreed it smelled best after an hour of wear. Very mellow.
Enchanting. No staying power.
I love this smell. Very woodsy, musky. Reminds me of the smell of the woods after the rain. I love it.
The scent to me smells just like a pine tree definately not one I'll be using much
It smells sensual, not sure that the fragrance lasts as long as I would like it to, throughout the day.
Love this scent. It's warm,seductive very alluring. The scent is long lasting but not over powering.
Very sexy and spicy fragrance, but still feminine and delicate. Many people complimented me on it, it's a subtle showstopper!
This is a strong and sophisticated scent. A little mature for me.
A slight hint of powder lays underneath light florals... this is a lovely scent.
The scent didn't last at all, so I can't really say if it's a remarkable one.
I absolutely love this fragrance. I used the entire bottle in just two weeks.
I think this perfume has a nice smell probably something I would wear on a date night. It has a nice deep smell that wear nicely.
It smelled nice but faded away quickly
this fragrance is delicious scent that i will be indulging in repeatedly
Too mature for my taste
it was ok. nothing to get excited about. A nice clean scent, slightly woodsy. nothing is go out and buy
This fragrance captures spices. I find it to be ambery, gingery, and warm in a fresh sense, however I also find it lacking something. It's almost as if I'm wishing for an oud note or something "sticky". If I may, I feel like this perfume contains some of the best ingredients from the East, but was concocted by a Westerner and therefore, doesn't fully capture the perfume's name sake. The longevity is only a couple of hours, maybe three tops. After that it settles on the skin.
This is a "grown up scent" . It's great for winter. It lasts all day.
Very nice perfume!
I love this scent so much I plan on purchasing a big bottle to make it my signature scent.
This is my favorite scent so far. Great for daytime and not too much nose for a work perfume. LOVE!
Spicy. Mature. The faded scent is nice. Would not purchase.
Very, very mature fragrance. And when I say mature I mean I think of my 80 year old grandmother, because this is something she would wear.
I love this one! I will probably wear this everyday even though it's a bit heavy.
I honestly didn't care for this scent. No staying power.
I LOVE this scent. I want to wear it every single day.
Lovely, sophisticated, sexy, slightly spicy, romantic. I am happy to add this to my collection.
My favorite perfume is Miss Dior, and this was a bit similar, but it does not last on me nearly as long. It's less sweet smelling than Miss Dior, so I wouldn't say this is a good scent for younger girls, but overall its a good, somewhat mature smelling (without being overpowering at all), scent for the autumn :)
Very unique :)
I had samples of this fragrance years ago and never bought it so I'm so excited to have it now and I can travel with it!
This scent was not for me. It had a strong musty scent that I didn't like. I could barely get the hints of chocolate and raspberry.
The scent is pretty nice, but it has NO staying power... wore off before I got out of the car to go into work.
very nice a light spicy note, however the fragrance wore off.
Perfect for summer/fall smells. I didn't like it at first try, but after the second day...i am in love with it!
LOVE this. Everyone I've shared it with loves it. What a great scent. Perfect spring/fall scent with a bit of spice and a lot of fruit/citrus high notes.
I prefer more woodsy, vanilla, creamy smells ....that being said This was not really my favorite. It was so sweet and fruity it came across as a very heavy alcohol smell .The amber smell was a bit heavy and ruined because of the fruity smell . It didn't smell horrible just kind of different not at all an intoxicating I got to know what your wearing perfume .
Second only to Prada Candy. I love a long lasting parfum.
Did not like. Was very mature. I felt it had too much amber.
At 1st i thought this smelled more like an old lady but after it dried down this beautiful kinda peachy smell came thru..i love it&would never have tried it,would passed it up in the store,so thanks scentbird i think i found a new love
Very nice scent
This was an interesting scent to me. I tend to prefer scents that are light and fresh, which this isn't. It is definitely a patchouli influenced scent, which doesn't tend to be my thing. However, it did dry down a lot milder than on first spray, and I ended up not minding it. I'll reach for it when I want something a bit exotic, but won't buy it when I'm out.
Oriens smells better than I imagined! It's a lovely scent; a hint of floral and background of fresh, light powder. I recommend trying it!
this scent surprised me.... I thought it would be a special occasions only scent... wow!!! trust me it is not... this is an everyday, everywhere scent... needless to say I will be purchasing the full size...
"this smells good but if you have any sensitivities to strong scents i.e. migraines consider yourself warned. its a bit strong, which would be good for the evening and the winter."
"I really like this scent but it gave me a migraine. I am super sensitive to smells so when I sprayed this I thought it had a great smell to it and it was sexy but I got the migraine soon after. Sad face, I have to swap this out now. As for the notes, I feel this is a more mature fragrance and comes off a bit older than my age but I do love the spiciness of this fragrance. So far my favorite to date would be Flowerbomb if you are looking for something that goes along with the notes from this scent."
Love this scent. It's sophisticated and versatile. I wore this when I knew I had plans after work. I would put it on in the morning and it would last all day. It isn't overly sweet and has a spiciness to it. I actually plan on purchasing a full bottle when my sample runs out.
"This is a beautiful sweet sophisticated scent that could blend into any season or any time of day, I think. The patchouli isn't too strong, but keeps the florals and the sweetness a little bit sexy. I think the berries come out pretty strong, but this is definitely not a little girl scent. You could wear this to work or out on a date and you would smell great. I took off one star because it has a pretty soft projection, and I prefer fragrances like this to have a little more gusto."
