Good but not my favorite scent
A good scent for someone else I didn’t really like the scent but it wasn’t bad it just wasn’t my scent
I got a lot of compliments at first but it only lasted about an hour. It is a nice, soft scent
My favorite by far!!!
I love this perfume so much I want to cry that it’s gone but I’m definitely buying a bottle and that’s a fact!
Gorgeous floral blast!
If you love tuberose, you’ll like this one!
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.
I decided to try a different type of perfume rather than my favorites. I am so glad that I tried this fragrance. Although strong it settles into a beautiful scent. I highly recommend Arquiste!
This scent is so gorgeous! It’s like absolutely nothing I’ve smelled before.
This isn't a scent I would wear. It isn't old lady powdery floral, but a very full in your face feminine floral scent. It wore off fairly quickly, but was very strong while it lasted.
This long-lasting scent brings back good memories of my childhood in the south with its notes of magnolia. It's not too sweet or cloying. I think it will be one of my new favorites.
feminine and flowery
strong flowery scent
Tru to its scent
Absolutely love it. I would definitely buy a bottle
just want I wanted
did not like
it's a musky smell that stay with ya
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.
Smells more like a perfume
I gave it to my sister. It’s way too sweet smelling for my taste.
Was just right
It was just the way they described it very lovely
Very nice floral but finish was more mature smelling than i like
Smells like summer.
It’s a staple type of scent. Up front it’s really strong but it works with my body chemistry because I get tons of compliments.
No bad but not that good either not my taste in fragrance
I like it💋💖
Cloying floral with an overwhelming smell of new tires
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.
Nice but not for me
It was a nice scent but not something I wear often
It was ok
I was pretty good
Was not expecting it to be as strong florals as it was. Thought it might have been a women's perfume.
Very sexy fragrance
I love the smell, not too strong. Perfect for a date nigh.
90% sure my grandma wears this. I like a floral perfume but this is too much.
It just did not catch my interest!!
My initial thoughts were that this fragrance was created for the much more older woman.
Didn’t smell how I thought
Arquiste Flor y Canto
Overpowering, also got lots of complaints from my man. It wasn't really my taste.
It smells good, just too strong for my liking. Very floral.
I like the smell I would order more
Scent is too light and doesn't last
It's not bad smelling but at first I thought they sent me something for her to try out but it didn't take a lot and lasted a long time like a good designer cologne should it just wasn't my sent
Not my favorite.
The magnolia was a bit overwhelming to me, remanded me of something my grandmother wore. Not a bad smell by any means, just not one i prefer to wear myself
Instantly took me back to a lazy summer day in Oaxaca. Great scent!
This is a floral that does not hit me hard. Don’t get me wrong you smell the flowers but your not eating them. :) Overall very nice.
Not what I thought, no specific note I could smell
I pick up a mixture of the magnolia and the plumeria definitely. Definitely a floral perfume. Very nice in my opinion.
I didn’t like the we’ll at all.
It gave me a headache and made me nauseous
I like it a lot
Did NOT like
Did not like at ALL I didn’t even want use it. It made me sick.
Floral and refined
It does smell like creamy gardenia, and reminds me of an upscale resort. I would probably wear this to work, or going to brunch wearing a nice sundress.
this perfume is extremely floral with a hint of mint. very pleasant in tye spring and softer temperatures.
This is my new favorite fragrance I’m loving this !!!!
My fave new scent.....it's amazing and I always get compliments
Reminds me of
Sand & Sable (from a drugstore in the early '90's). Mostly just a strong jasmine scent.
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.
I do love the scent
Yes smell long lasting
Fades to quickly
love it! it smells amazing. a true floral scent. long lasting
spicy, pleasant sweetness
Una fragancia muy corriente y pobre en escencia porque aparte de un olor desagradable flores de panteón,no dura el olor y que bueno que no fina bien con el pH de las personas.Muy mala experiencia.
The most decadent floral scent, I've ordered it a few times now and always finish the entire bottle
Strong smell. Very floral. Lasts a good amount of time.
very beachy, summer nights scent
Very floral, pretty good, it does the trick but nothing special
Very Clean Floral - a little overpowering
old lady smell
Beautiful, summery fragrance
The marigold notes come through very strong for me, but I love them! Reminds me of planting flowers with my mom on a warm summer day. Lasts a long time without being overpowering or giving me a headache. I wish the full size bottle wasn't so expensive!

White Floral with an Interesting Twist
Good choice for people who love white florals, smells expensive
Freaking love it &it last forevrer.got to try it if you havnt .thanjs. Scentbird
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.
25 to 34
Nice Warm Weather Floral
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.
Long lasting jasmine scent. Immediately when sprayed you smell the jasmine but as soon as the dry Down begins the aroma turns into a more subtle masculine scent. Love it even at its floral best ! Would definitely buy again!
Feminine and floral
Very strong scent. Sweet smells good
My absolute favorite new scent.
Buy it now!
Absolutely love this big, yummy, floral!!
35 to 44
I really enjoyed this scent. The tuberose is the first scent you notice. The dry down is a powdery jasmine. Strong but interesting floral.
Love the white floral scent
I love white florals and this is a nice sweet floral scent. It might be a strong floral scent for some, but if you love a soft, clean floral with some fruity notes, this is a nice choice. It’s not overly complicated.
45 to 54
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.
35 to 44
This smells so good. I love Gardenia. Long lasting. Sexy, pretty, flirty!
55 to 64
Transported to another time. This scent is deliciously rich with floral, but finishes with a wonderful copal drag. LOVE it!
Loved it, light floral notes
35 to 44
Bright Strong Floral
A very strong floral with marigold at the forefront. A bit too intense florals for me to wear on the daily but I could see wearing it on a special occasion. It’s a delightful room spray
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.
The same thing happened to me with a different scent! I love this program, but they should really improve their customer service!
25 to 34
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.

Ode to Mexico
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.
45 to 54
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

Flor Y Canto
Love. Grown and sexy fragrance.

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.
this was a beautiful highly floral scent. It lasted well beyond expectation. Just to flowery for my liking
This is my favorite so far. I had a little bit left and dropped the bottle. I was so sad. I'll be buying this 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.
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.
Love it, and so does my Daughter
I should know better than to get these unisex flavors because they smell so good, my daughter takes them.
Great summer perfume
This is soft and subtle not overpowering it smells like summer . It didnt seem to last long but that may be cause its 100 degrees and i sweat it all off
I didnt like it much it smells good but maybe more for a little girl its not strong enough for me doesn't last long either.
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. 😊
A bit too sweet and strong for me.
This is a really sweet floral scent , pleasant but just not to my taste.
Not my favorite. It smelled better after it was on a while but it was kind of grandmaish...
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.
I did not order this.. Please keep it! It just shows up in my question
It is NOT unisex, is pure woman fragance, extremely floral. I gave it away since I couldn’t stand it
I didnt catch any marigold, which is what I was most interested in. Its a lovely light inoffensive floral. It is quite boring.
To girly for a guy
AWFUL! Smells terrible too buttery or something
Worst one yet...really disappointed unfortunately. Very strong, floral, pungent smell. My wife hated it and my daughter told me to go wash my arm...she is 4.
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!
I couldn't wait for three smell to go away. It was awful. It was just a hot mess of scents.
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.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS SCENT its the perfect floral.. not too overwhelming but stays on and lingers..im a fan of tuberose and this is a really nice tuberose. it seems a bit lighter than Michael kors but definitely in that category
I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS SCENT!! You do not have to use a lot. Someone mentioned if you like Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs you will love this scent -they were spot on, they are two of my absolute favorites.
I absolutely loooved this scent..just loved it!!
I did not like this perfume. It was very sweet smelling. Did not notice many floral notes. Will not use.
The cologne smelled very much like a floral perfume. Very disappointed. Worst cologne I picked yet!!
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
I dont know what it smells like..I didnt get this.
i HATED IT!! I actually threw it away, it was so overpowering with gardenia it gave me a migraine and I was nauseous for the rest of the evening.
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
A little too soapy for my taste
Much too feminine. How is this unisex?
This was suggested fragrance for me. Loved the description! Sounded warm and sexy. However, smelt like cheap roses. I could see it being liked by older woman. Not a fan.
Definitely a woman's perfume. Smelled like roses. Not a bad oerfume but i don't think it should be considered unisex at all.
I love it! Romantic floral scent
I like the smell of this, just not something I would wear a lot. It's a bit heavy for me. It is a nice scent, just not my favorite.
Smells great. Lacks longevity however.
Have worn this once since receiving it a few days ago as strong scents have made me cough with this chest cold I have. I do say though it is a very distinct scent that is noticeable when you walk into a room very mature very sophisticated and definitely Floral
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.
Loved this scent.
