Description
Founded over a quarter of a century ago, the international luxury fragrance house of Amouage is globally renowned for its highly sought-after, long-lasting and innovative fragrances that pay tribute to the art of fine fragrance making. <br><br>Amouage Bracken Woman honors the Summer of Love, and any Flower Children who spend their sunlit days seeking out all of nature?s pleasures. This latest addition to the Midnight Flower Collection is a young and ethereal green scent, that?s as hopeful as fresh blooms stretching their stems into the warm, soft cloth of a new day. It begins with a tender green fern accord shading a grove of ripe red berries, and ends with smoky birch and leather draped in gentle, gauzy white flowers. Bracken Woman is a perfume with its own illusory inner magic ? a faerie tale just waiting for the new Queen of Spring to wear it and live happily ever after.

I don't know what happened to amouage!
If I was nice I would say that it smells like toilet spray, but I is much worst. I spray it on the little card board that is joined with the description and my entire house smell like this awful indescribable smell. between a very bad toilet spray and a zombie juice. Definitely dated but not in the good way, nauseous and overpowering. It is the second time I'm very disappointed with Amouage, but god knows how much I loved that brand. Epic is my favorite perfume EVER, jubilation even if it is strong is delightful, etc...but this! MAMMA MIA! UNWEARABLE!, I don't feel any notes of red fruits or anything else than the weird moldy moss.

Not For Me
It's definitely strong and long-lasting, but too bitter and sharp for me. I have a difficult time leather notes and green notes. I don't know why I keep trying.

Another Disappointment From One of My Favorite Houses
Bracken Woman doesn't smell outright atrocious to me like some of their other recent offerings, but it's definitely not up there with the drop-dead beauties that made me fall in love with the house of Amouage. (Memoir, Lyric, Honour, Sunshine, and Interlude just to name a few that I love.) Bracken is sharp and rather green, as it's a fougere (fern) fragrance, which explains also why it's also so masculine to my nose. Fern is quite common in men's fragrances so it's no wonder that this reminds me of upscale men's toiletries, or fine French milled soap. What I picture is a young fancy lad all freshly showered and shaved, decked out in his tennis whites, and wearing grown up aftershave. He's ready for fun and frolic with his fellow fancy lad pals at the tennis club! While I don't find this unpleasant, it's just a tad over the line into aftershave country for me to think of it as unisex or remotely feminine.

Strange and glorious in its strangeness
This is like nothing I have ever smelt! It?s green, it?s lush, it?s the dark undergrowth of a forest in spring, bursting with possibilities and dangers. The fern is exceptional?-almost dank, sour, teasing, it makes all those sweet ?spring? scents smell like pale ghosts of the real thing. The berry notes sweeten it a little but not enough to make this a comfortable scent. It reminds me of John Galsworthy?s description of spring?s wild scent, unusual and unfamiliar from The Forsyte Saga: ?And now and again, as the amorous perfume of chestnut flowers and of fern was drifted too near, one would say to the other: ?My dear! What a peculiar scent!? The rich patchouli deepens the fern and softens its edge. It is strange and wonderful, very strong and I think it?s enchanting!

Natural and unusual
The first time I wore this scent, I loved it. The top notes are fresh and green, reminiscent of the naturalness of Diptyque's Philosykos. The drydown is sort of funky, but didn't bother me. The second time I wore it, I sprayed with a heavier hand, and that was a mistake. This perfume lasts all day, and the damp quality of the drydown lingered on my sleeves until it became overwhelming. Approach this one carefully.

Not for the novice perfume wearer
Wow, this perfume is definitely in the league of "strong, mature" perfumes. If you love strong, complex, changing, and sophisticated perfumes this may be the perfume for you. Hard to describe but this feels like something a woman wearing a power suit and black pumps from the 1980s would wear: think Signorny Weaver from "Working Girl". There are definitely some playful notes in here; I think I smell either tulips or daffodils but this gets smacked over the head with a deeply agressive patchouli and a more tepid vetiver. There is also a lot of spice in here but it is a patchouli bomb to me. Overall, I'm happy i have this bottle BUT it is definitely not an "every day" office or weekend scent. Its not easy. This is a perfume you wear to the opera or the theatre. It is pretty unique but I probably wouldn't buy again.

Patchouli forward
One thing you can always count on from Amouage is silage. This one was a real scrubber for me unfortunately. The pictorial notes listed for this one do not correlate with the scent. I expected something floral and what it truly is is a heavy patchouli-chrypre with a hint of dark berries.

Bracken by Amouage
One of the best I have tried! Like being in a damp fresh garden close to a forest. Something to save up for!

Not bad
It's not bad but it still kind of smells musky and it's a bit strong for me.

Hate at first sight, but I fell in love after
The first spray was too strong and gave me a headache, but my husband loved it. An hour later, the loud and weird perfume turned into an adorable floral with a primal green undertone. Very carnal, very sensual, I adore it. It is pretty much like in life when people you've hated at the beginning end up becoming your best friends. Anyway, is not a perfume for everybody, it is floral but not light, it is green but not fresh. I am not sure I will be able to wear it on a regular day (I must say that I am not shy when it comes to wearing strong or not so usual perfumes, I am the type who wears Kenzo Jungle or Mugler's Alien at 7 a.m. in the bus :)) but it is the type of scent I see wearing on a date night.

Smells like an old hippie
When I initially sprayed it, I thought it was going to be far too floral for me. But as it dried down, some interesting woody/earthy notes started to come through and I thought for a moment that it would end up being alluring and interesting. Nope. After a few more minutes, I smelled like an old hippie (and not in the charming sense). It went very masculine, which is fine with me as long as it's an appealing scent. Maybe it didn't mix well with my skin chemistry, but I also think I simply don't care for the scent. No big deal. You can't love them all. But this was definitely a miss for me personally.

Different....?
It has a flowery smell when I spray it on, but it fades away and starts giving off a woody smell. I did not like it at all!

Gross...?
Honestly this is one of the most disgusting perfumes I've ever come across. I think it reacted poorly with my skin chemistry. It smelled sour and bitter on me, not at all floral or even perfume-y. Mostly just a sour, dark smell that actually fits with a sort of fantasy-fiction idea of a "bracken woman" from a bracken swamp or something....but honestly I'm not that edgy when it comes to perfumes. :) I was hoping for the apple blossom scent but I think I mostly just got "sour". That doesn't mean this wouldn't be great on someone else's skin--I'd just use caution if you're looking for the fruity-floral notes cause you might not get them.

Smells awful.
I just received my first order. I wanted to try something new and expensive, but I never expected that it would be so unpleasant. Smells like a wardrobe of old old lady. I read the other reviews before ordering and had different impression of this fragrance. I do not recommend it to anyone.

Smells very strongly of fern. That is the main note I get and the only note I can focus on. Too much for me.

The opening is very strong, reminiscent of the clothes detergent that a friend's mother used to use. Very strong, large silliage. Shortly after it becomes a lush and beautiful green explosion. Lasts forever.

Don't judge this by the first spray! Let it sit and mellow out. It starts out as a spicy green floral... then settles into a warm almost powdery floral scent - still with a spicy kick, but really nice. This is the 2nd fragrance I've tried from Amouge and both reacted the same. They got better with time! I love unique scents and so I can tell I'm going to enjoy this one a lot! I think it's perfect for Fall.. very long lasting.

The scent consisted of raw fern and lily. No other notes were present on me. The fragrance was overwhelmingly strong as if I had a bouquet of the cheapest ferns and lilies tied to my wrist. I chose to try this based on the description above and in my opinion, it is not at all accurate. I love patchouli and I did not pick up the tiniest hint of it in Bracken Woman. The two stars are solely for the longevity, which is incredible at over 12 hours. I am so impressed by the longevity that I hope to continue sampling Amouage until I find a fragrance that suits me.

Lovely and interesting green floral. It is unique and has good longevity and silage. I really enjoy it, but I hear it's divisive, so it's a great one to test out first. But I'm definitely going to pick up a full bottle of this one! I love it!

I was pleasantly surprised with Bracken. Like other Amouage scents that I've tried, it changes over time as you wear it and smells like nothing else in my collection. Love this as a summer scent.

This perfume has a expensive Nantucket gift shop vibe to me. I like it enough to spray once in a while, but not enough to buy.

Well it's named after a fern and it smells like fern, no surprise there. I didn't like it too much but my husband thought it smelled great on me, so go figure.

I agree with the 1st reviewer on this scent. There is something very 70s about this scent that I dislike. The initial spray is overpowering. The scent then goes down into a musty smell and patchouli. On me this scent was never floral. This scent does have staying power. I was hoping for something closer to Honour Woman with this one. This one is going into my never to be worn box.

Has a musty, old smell. I really didn't like it. Maybe for older women?
