I thought this was too masculine at first but after a few minutes it had the warm incense-y smell I was looking for. I wouldn't purchase it, but it was nice to wear a bit for a month.

Not the best. Smells like Hand Sanitizer
It might just be my palate but this isn’t what I expected. When my family smelled it, they thought I had used hand sanitizer

Ugh. Unisex My Butt.
Men’s Cologne. Bitingly harsh. Cloying. The ingredients sound lovely. They’re not. Reminds me of an early 1990s style men’s cologne. Can’t think of the brand. Selling it on eBay, I don’t even want it in my house. It’s that bad.

Not for a girl, smells like mens cologne.
I did not like the scent on me. It reminds me of my husbands cologne, though it may smell good on him, just not for me at all. I disagree this is labeled a unisex product. This was my first scent, I did not choose this, it was chosen for me by scentbird. bummer.

Nothing special
Pleasant but nothing special. It's definitely got a bit of an old-fashioned men's aftershave smell. A little bit too sharp for my tastes, but inoffensive and would be a good option for a work fragrance as it's rather classic-smelling.

A nice, smooth finish
This one surprised me a bit because I had no expectations going into it. No idea why it's rated lower than a 4 star. This stuff is absolutely amazing! It's not too strong, and last a good while. I wore it when I first got it, and was complimented by my wife, who's very picky. It was good enough that I searched and searched until I found a bottle to buy from the actual manufacturer. It's also good enough that I had to wait a few months since it was sold out here, as well. Give it a try and you won't be disappointed.

Good product
Have ordered abbot products before, and they are a great company. They are all made to represent their namesake. The cape is masculine, but imo if a woman I was with smelled that way I would not mind. Worth a buy if you are interested in the notes.

My sister seriously asked if I'd had a man in the house.
I agree that unisex is misleading. I actually came back to see if I'd accidentally ordered a men's cologne by accident. I'd like it on a man, just not on me.

Clean and Bright
I really like this scent. I agree that it is a tad more masculine but the dry down softens some of it leaving a fresh and clean warmth.

Way more masculine than feminine
This is a very clean scent but I found it to be quite masculine and feel that the unisex decription is misleading. This is definitely a cologne for men. I selected this particular scent because I thought the combination of ginger and mint would be both fiery and refreshing but unfortunately I can't detect notes of either. That being said, if you're looking for a clean, somewhat woodsy, fresh ocean air scent for a man, this may be exactly what you're looking for.

I anticipated a light fragrance that could be ambiguous, but the smell is very masculine and strong.

Too masculine
I never write reviews...but I’m very disappointed...way too masculine for me. I love clean scents, but this is straight up men’s cologne.

Smells great, but a bit too masculine.
I like the smell of this fragrance, but find it a bit too masculine for me to wear. Ended up using it as a room spray!

Misleading description on website
One of the primary reasons I selected this for my first delivery is because it was one of the few I looked at that did not include musk or patchouli in the description as both tend to give me horrible migraines. I was not too happy upon receiving it to see patchouli listed as one of the scent notes on the card. I’ve worn it twice now, and thankfully have not had a migraine yet, but I don’t see it being a perfume I wear regularly.

Not what I was expecting
This is for a mature audience. I’m in my twenties and this wasn’t at all youthful or as fresh as I was expecting it to be.

Love It!!
It's a beautiful and refreshing scent. I love it, I catch myself wearing it everyday, but I MUST be careful or it will be gone before I know it!! I definitely will be looking to get a larger bottle of this cent. That is one of the reasons why I like ScentBird so much, it lets you find scent that you'd like to try without the expensive price tag & commintment to a bottle of something you only kinda like. Thanx ScentBird!!

Smelled nice with no compliments
This was an ok Cologne. But it's not my style and also seemed like people didn't notice the Cologne on me either

Reminds me of the beach
I enjoyed this scent after it was on for a while. It started off very crisp and clean and fresh and as time wore on it developed into a deeper richer warmer scent.
