How have I not reviewed this?! Though I am not a white floral fanatic (which you should be for this fragrance), this still ranks as one of my favorites--partially just because I love the name that much. This elegant, creamy flower bomb always gets me compliments from the in-laws, and is perfect for classy evenings when you're up for carrying it, lest it carry you. Masterfully crafted without being overly complicated, I swear I get whiffs of smoke and clay in there when I sniff it enough. Am I crazy? Maybe, but color me impressed.

My favorite
I love this perfume !!! It reminds me of some I mixed myself several years ago in garden botanical in the mall. My daughter says that it reminds her of my old perfume to. This is very hard to find anywhere else but up here. So I reorder it up here every 5-6 months or as often as I can. Really nice deeper floral

Beautiful Workhorse Fragrance
This is a very lovely floral scent, if you love tuberose. When you first spray it, you get a strong hit of the marigold. That gives it kind of a "green" will diminish, but not entirely subside. As it settles in to your skin, it becomes a white flower BOMB of a fragrance. It's not overpowering, but it is quite assertive. It is evocative of Spring and, in my opinion, has a romantic vibe to it. This is one that you should go easy on the trigger with because it would be very easy to overspray this. I don't think that this is an unusual fragrance, but I do think that it is a lovely one.

incredible
I'm not into perfumes. I think they smell like soap or have a really strong odor that makes you feel like if you took a shower with it. I have to say that I was surprised at how different and discrete the smell is compared to the others I have received. I have to add that this is the inly one I have been ask by different people of what perfume is it because they like the way I smell. If you are looking for something different and not super strong I think this will be a good option.

Not worth a smell
I wasn’t impressed at all with this fragrance. It’s way too off grid with flower scents. It’s really not a masculine smell so being unisex is not true. It’s for sure a very feminine fragrance. Not my style to wear... took a loss Andrew threw it away.

Flor y Canto
This is a big white floral. If you love tuberose it’ll be right up your alley. In the opening I can smell, but not decisively pick out, the other flowers, along with a touch of green, and then shortly it becomes a creamy and luscious tuberose, and stays linear from there, very much a tuberose soliflore. The base notes are copal incense, benzoin and vanilla bean. I can’t pick them out, but I think they are adding to the smooth creaminess of the tuberose. This tuberose isn’t as narcotic as some, not sure how to describe the difference (Nasomatto Narcotic Venus, DSH Perfumes Tubereuse, and Fracas are examples of ones I would describe as narcotic). Flor y Canto starts out strong, but after the tuberose blooms it stops projecting as much and wears closer to the skin. The projection and sillage become minimal, making it a good prospect for a day scent, and even office if applied with a light touch; one spray a couple feet away and walked into, before getting dressed. I love me a good tuberose, so while not unique, it is one of the good ones.

Strong at first
The first time I sprayed it, I was overwhelmed with the scent. It was strong, heavy almost and then after about 5-10 min later the heaviness wore off and I was left with a nice sweet, not overly sweet, elegant scent. I liked it more as the day went on. I would suggest to spray it in a very open, ventilated area to help it dissipate faster. Also, a little goes a looooong way. 😊

Gorgeous Scent
One of my new favorites. A Floral scent without being heavy or over powering. Only one spray is needed and it will last all day without fading into a weird musky small.

A little heavier than I expected. It's a pleasant scent that will work for people who prefer heavier, muskier scents... Definitely not a universal fragrance. Just not my cup of tea.

ARQUISTE is quickly becoming my favorite scent maker. The architectures club Jenny favorite scent in the world, and this is a close second. It's floral, but not little kid floral. It's very adult and "serious" as far as the floral scent. No one will be disappointed if they receive this scent. Love Love Love!

It is a nice perfume, i am giving it to my mother in law. I feel it is more a mature sent, also depends on your natural sent. I would definitely say this is strictly a female perfume. Very much a floral perfum, a but not as sweet as i would have thought.

This is a soft but heady tuberose scent and you can tell that the ingredients are top quality. I think it would be a good choice if you love perfumes like Michael Kors or Marc Jacobs first fragrance.

The opening has a green, leafy, herbal quality to it, which gradually slides into the background (but never fully disappears) as rich white flowers (tuberose, magnolia, plumeria, and perhaps honeysuckle and gardenia) warm up on my skin. The overall effect is a feminine and very natural summer garden scent, sweet, creamy, a little waxy, and grounded by a faint green astringency. Lasts for around 7 hours, and is never heavy, loud, powdery, or sharp.

Disappointed. As many other men have stated this is a feminine fragrance. There is nothing remotely close to a men's fragrance in this bottle. I also agree that it belongs on a more mature woman. Many young women arent going to be able to pull this off. Very irritated as I don't know anybody that would enjoy this. Wasted f very irritated as I don't know anybody that would enjoy this. Wasted fragrance

Since I can't edit my review, I'm writing another. This is why I love the concept of Scentbird. There is enough sample to wear several times. I wasn't totally thrilled with Flor y Canto at first, but after wearing a few times, its grown on me a lot. It smells very "pretty". It is also very very high quality and lasts a very long time. Even though a bottle is very expensive, I'll buy one someday.

amazing! I love it! it's heavy on gardenia. it reminds me of Cleopatra from Tocca and Marc Jacobs original. So pretty and not old lady'ish. I love it! It's def flowery and a tiny bit of a powder base, in the best way. My bf loved it, too.

Very, very soft, sweet floral. Nothing unisex about this.... This is very strong and will last literally for days if you don't wash it off. When I put it on in the evening and can still smell it on myself the next morning as if I just sprayed it. Would be perfect for a sunny spring day.
