Not a fan at all
This may be for some but not for me. It was too "spicy". Reminded me of poison the perfume. I thought it was harsh and not youthful

One or two notes too many
I really enjoy the initial scent, but when the top notes dissipate, everything else is a bit much. It's like they struck a perfect balance, then added a couple of extra notes that distract.

Unfortunately this smell just wasn't for me. It's a very strong, very mature floral smell. Too overwhelming for me. I'm bummed I didn't like it-arquiate has some of my favorite smells. I do not see this as a unisex smell- it's very much a feminine smell.

Beautiful floral, but not for me
What can I say, this is gorgeous if you are into yellow florals. It really smells like you’re walking through a garden of creamy flowers. Ultimately, I need some citrus or fruit to elevate this scent to my preferences, but if you are a purist, you’ll enjoy this. Arquiste is of highest quality and it’s obvious in their scents.

A glorious eruption of exotic florals for woman with moxie
Full disclosure, I'm over 40, but I have always loved a full on floral. I don't care for roses, so this is right up my alley. I have been longing for something heady and luxuriously fragrant like summer blooms ever since Kate Spade discontinued Beauty and this fits my bill. I don't care if someone else likes it, I'm wearing it for me, but my husband also likes florals on me. I wouldn't get too carried away on the spritzing, it wears well. I'm also a fan of Glam Jasmine by Michael Kors and I like most Marc Jacobs.

Beautiful, Nostalgic Scent
This is a very rich and full and long lasting scent. It’s busy but not in an overwhelming way. And I plan on buying a full bottle of this. The first thing this scent reminds me of is Hawaii. I was there last year and love stumbling across scents that take me back to that time in between my next visit. (My boyfriend’s first comment was also that it reminds him of Hawaii as well.) It’s a nice elegant and pretty scent. And my boyfriend has told me three times today how good I smell when he’s walked by me. So, you’ll get noticed too.

Sharp gardenia
My boyfriend loved this scent. I'm apparently really bad at identifying scents, because most florals smell pretty gardenia-y to me lol. Same goes for this one. There's a little sharpness to this that gives it a little more edge than your mother's floral perfume.

Pretty floral scent that works well with warm weather. I love it! It lasts maybe a couple hours on me before it fades. Its not cloying, so I could get away with wearing it to the office. Maybe not a meeting where I'm sitting close to lots of people though.

The floral notes are lovely, marigold smells spicy and fresh. I wish I could get a little more of the copal note. I wore this while walking on an unseasonably hot day, and it kept my spirits up. Edit: I actually love it now. I will probably put it up when the temperature drops, but it is delightful.

Too flowery granny smelling
When I received the scent it had leaked in shipment. I looked at the tube and the top looked like it had bent and the label and the outside of it was flaking off. I didn’t like the scent anyway but when you pay $15 a month you don’t want a tube half empty. I messaged Scentbird but I haven’t received a response.

Incredible!
I am trying to think, but this might be my absolute favorite perfume yet that I have sampled through Scentbird! This smells absolutely natural, vibrant, real...Fresh, warm and like flowers rather than a lifeless bottled potion. Tuberose, one of my favorite notes, smells very true, and claims its stardom among tagetes (marigolds), plumeria, magnolia...the typical white floral headiness is softened by a *natural* freshness rather than sharpness. At $190 for a full bottle I am hurt, I have just never pined for affordable perfumes, my love rarely comes cheap. Will be used to the last spray, and I will at least purchase a 2nd decant.

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.

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.

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.

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. 😊

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.

I recommend against, it's way too powerful and it isn't light like some flower scents, it's heavy and smells way to strong

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.
