Nice, but not unique.
In my opinion, this is very similar to other fragrance options that are much more affordable. I could be wrong because I have not worn it in a while, but it reminds me of the original Carolina Herrera. It is slightly warmer than I remember, CH to be, though. A little sweeter, as well. And, on my skin it fades somewhat quickly. That said, it is a fresh, slightly sweet, very “girly” floral. Since the fragrance I referenced is not as popular as it once was, I don’t think that you will smell like a everyone else. On my skin, I am getting caramel, or brown sugar, notes which is not at all bad. And, this would be a good workhorse fragrance. A great, out of the shower and hit the ground running go-to. It’s just not going to impress your other fragrance geek friends.

Beautiful delicacy
This is absolutely lovely. The gardenia is rich and textured, it’s sweetness tempered by the rhubarb with a vetiver undertow that grows as the gardenia softens, melting into the amber and spices. It’s a lovely thing, delicate as the palest blossom with a deep deep background that grows during the dry down. Very elegant and sweet, it’s a special occassion all by itself. The deep base notes keep the gardenia from becoming totally overwhelming.

Good white floral
This is a balanced white floral with medium sillage. I don't normally love white florals, but this one is not overly creamy or heavy. It's inoffensive enough to wear as an everyday office scent, but it would also make a good daytime special event fragrance, like to an outdoor wedding. I didn't give it a 5 because it feels a little boring to me and I wouldn't pay for a full bottle, but I will use up the sample that I have.

I really didn't know what to expect from this fragrance, but I queued it along with Narcisso Rodriguez and they are somewhat similar. I 'm giving 4 stars because although I'm enjoying the scentbird sample, I would probably not purchase this just because it isn't a "me" kind of smell. It reminds me of my grandmother when I was a child... she used to wear a perfume called Anais Anais, which I haven't smelled in years (she's been resting in peace for about 20 years now)... used Yardley lavender soap and Maja (Spanish) face powder, her room always smelled floral and soapy clean. My grandmother would have loved this fragrance.

Overall I would have to say I like this scent. It comes on strong at first and little musky, but later becomes more soft and powdery. It's fine to use during the day or evening, but don't think it's suitable for a romantic occasions.

I really like this perfume. It does go on strong, but I didn't mind this much because it was still a very light feeling perfume with the lilies being the most prominent thing I can smell. It does smell more "mature" than maybe some other perfumes, but by no means would o consider it an old lady fragrance. Sophisticated is more like it. I enjoy this for during the day time, or a special occasion perfume.

This is a very lovely fragrance! I agree that it is strong on the first spray but it does dissipate so not to be too much. It's nice but it still smells generic floral perfume to me and nothing I find too unique. The jasmine is pretty and hangs well on me. I will use up the small bottle I received but I will not be buying a larger one.

I must admit I was pretty put off by this one at first. It goes on REALLY strong and cloying. However, given time to settle in this is quite pleasant and lasts a long time. The jasmine and gardenia are the main notes I get. Just use a light touch with this one, otherwise you'll make yourself and anyone in an enclosed space with you nauseous.

This perfume is real strong at first it does get lighter as time goes by. The smell didn't last long on me and I think it reminded me of a grandmother's perfume. I didn't like this perfume that much. It was my first order I really was hoping to get something that I liked because my skin doesn't hold smells for some reason so I was hoping to find a good one.

I really wanted to like this. I generally like Amouage and I love Madame Butterfly which was supposedly the inspiration for this film. White florals and I can have very finicky relationships. Some are great, others are totally horrid and cloying on me. This one was not horrid, but did get cloying when it's big floral heart drops. I was hoping it would back off in time, but it became headachesville. Such a bummer. I dried it on a cooler summer night, so it's possible it was too warm, but I doubt it. Maybe I'll try again in the cold weather, I know a lot of people seem to like this one. Alas, so far it's not for me.

This scent starts as a beautiful and powerful white floral on my skin. The peppery notes are almost nonexistent. After about an hour it morphs into a bright green aquatic fragrance. Unfortunately I haven't been able to use the scent fully as the nozzle on the sprayer is malfunctioning and gets stuck in the pressed position. Of course this isn't a fault of the scent but rather the manufacturer of the bottle. All in all, it is a lovely spring scent reminiscent of walking through an English garden as the gardenias begin bursting forth.

Amouge's Honor Woman reminded me of something I had in my perfume collection. I couldn't place it immediately because I hadn't used it in a LONG time but when my memory came back I knew it reminded me of Fracas. This fragrance is very floral and feminine in a classic way not in the Flowerbomb way. This is something to wear to teatime with your rich nana. The lady who wears Chanel No. 5 or the aforementioned Fracas would love this

I put this in my queue because I was curious at the praise surrounding it- I've heard it's one of the best niche white floral fragrances. I can see why- this smells very natural, just like a garden of blooming white flowers. It's not headachy or overpowering to me, yet still intense and rich so as not to be boring. It develops a little sweeter on my skin after awhile, probably the tuberose peeking through. I like that to me, this does not smell "perfumey" but just like real flowers.

This has a very mature fruity floral smell to me, but it's very unpleasant. It's not heavy and it lasts a decent amount of time (6 hrs.) I don't like this at all and it's the worst scent I've received from ScentBird. Something in this fragrance gives off a smell of urine on weeds to me. In all honesty, I absolutely cannot give this a positive rating. Soooo....disappointing !

Starts off with a high pitched rhubarb scent that quickly gives way to the gardenia which seems to hang on for quite a while on my skin. The dry down eventually fades to a floral/powder, close to the skin scent that's warm and developed.
