2.4 out of 5
Just a nice on the go fragrance
Citrus but subtle
I usually wouldn't go for citrus scents. I'm more of either a White diamonds or Versace woman. But this perfume has grown on me. It's not too strong . However, I would only wear this maybe to a grocery store or family's home. It's not a going out scent or even a work scent to me.
It was what I expected
It’s a really a good fragrance!
I did not like the smell
Smelled like a weird lemon.
love this fragrance
I love the fact that I can enjoy this fragrance, when otherwise I probably wouldn't spend the money at the store
Give it a chance
This scent was TERRIBLE in the bottle and we were pretty disappointed, but my husband decided to use it on days where it didn’t matter much. He put it on this morning to go chop wood...walked by me and I swooned... he smelled AMAZING...so give it a chance...spray it on, let it settle, walk around a bit, and THEN smell again...you will be surprised.
Odd unknown scent
I can't say I liked this at all! Very strong. I expected more of a citrus scent but I did not smell it, woody scent but not even a nice smell wood. I'm hoping the scent lessens or changes as the day wears on.
It smells like something old people like
It’s just not for me
Im so not a good one to really say anything about perfume. Im not an expert but just trying to find the right scent for me... Im not big on perfumy smells and this one smells too perfumy for my liking.
Horrible smell can’t even describe.
Very harsh smell
smelled exactly as advertised and thr girlfriend loes it
I love it send me more
I was not pleased with the scent. Smelled like old coffee not my fruity water style
This was for a very wise lady
Really old smelling
Really old smelling
Stank like old lady.
Very unflattering smell for me.
Too sweet of smell. Very strong
Did not like it
Don’t like the smell at all
My Mom loves this one, but I don't.
Not my cup of tea, but definitely an elegant and well crafted citrusy fragrance.
Did not like!
I smelled like an 80 year old woman. Would not recommend. Have to give away it smelled awful
I am sorry to say that I think that scent was awful. Smells too much like Old powdered things. And clashed with my body.
Unique, strong, evocative scent
This scent is really unusual, so I understand a lot of the negative reviews- it could definitely be outside of the comfort zone for a lot of people. The first punch when you spray is pretty vivid. The aroma of dates is very earthy and not sweetened much by the other elements here. That being said, once the initial shockwave from this strong, intense scent settles down, what's left is a rich, complex blanket of warm dates tempered with bright citrus that lasts for hours and gradually meets your skin scent by day's end. Truly, a masterful unisex fragrance for the adventurous among us.
didnt like the smell wouldn't recommend to others
Had to take a shower
Would recommend to others
It stinks...It is very harsh and strong. Old smelling. I will not be using it.
I thought it smelled inexpensive and offensive
I thought it was cheap and basically sour
Nice perfume, not my style
Smells medicinal at first then settles into an overwhelming creamy, powdery, vetiver lifted up by citrus.
Not for mr
This scent had an awkward hard feel to it
Good scent. A little strong.
A long lasting fragrance. Not completely my favorite. But stayed on. And smelled fairly nice.
the Smell is exactly what I like, not to strong, but enough that when you walk by, the scent follows you. I love it.
l love it.
go ahead and bad you won't be disappointed
the vetiver ruins this. it starts off nice enough, but dries down into cheap aftershave.
It’s good but not my style
I’ll be honest it might grow on me but this kinda thing is new. I used to use axe body spray but this is 10x better.
Just wasn't for me
there wasn't anything terribly wrong with it, but it didn't suit my personal scent profile.
Smells like anise in a bad way.
Too strong and musky.. smells like a locker room
It smelled stale. I didn't like it at all. 🤮
It was too harsh
I liked it after the smell was aired out for an hour but it is just not a good fragrance for me. Dont go good with my natural scent.
not for me
Smelled too manly
It doesn’t smell pleasant to me at all!
It had an earthy smell that I don’t care for at all.
Worse scent I’ve ever had
Plain and simple this scent was horrible!! I’ve only come across few scents in my 15 years as a collector that I felt was just bad. This is one of them. I’ve read glowing reviews which led to me acquiring this one and I regret it.
Not a good fragrance
I want to return this fragrance!!! Smells old!
It had an almost medicinal smell to it. I actually thought upon receiving it that it had turned. I was going to message Scentbird but after reading the reviews I realized that is the actual scent.
It has an unappealing afterscent. I can only describe it as stale.
Not for me
Definitely not a favorite. Smells weird
Didn't really care for it.
I was mistaken when i clicked on this option to add to my ques. I did not like the smell once it arrived.
It has an after scent that I do not like.
It’s better than I imagined
smells like old man
just didn't like it, not a smell I would buy
My wife loves the smell and so did I I thought maybe it could be just a tad stronger
what was the most important to me is that I picked out a good one she loved it
Smells nice but a bit strong
Smells was little overpowering but a nice fragrance.
Not for me. To woodsy.
Not For Me
That scent L’etrog is not for me I don’t like it at all.
Definitely never would have been a choice of mine
Didn't have any strong enough sense that I could smell one two or three in particular wasn't strong enough thank you
Nice overall, not my favorite though
There was a heavy alcohol scent when I first opened the package. In the week and a half or so that I've had it, that initial alcohol scent has dissipated and now it has an interesting powdery citrus top note. I knew the first day I wore it that I liked the center and base notes, and now that the excess alcohol has evaporated I like the top note as well.
Very strong smell , not too appealing when you originally spray it, but it settles very nicely
when first sprayed, too strong, smell not good at all!! it finally settles and it's not that bad
The scent was too strong and i found that they dont last very long
I thought it smelled manly and way too strong smelling
Not good at describing this stuff, but one note of it just kind of stuck out too strong like the smell of an over-seasoned Mediterranean chicken kabob dish.
Exactly my taste
this smells terrible in my opinion. Almost smalls like a medicine
25 to 34
So.....not a fan. Leans more female than unisex. Smells very matronly, think Miss Havisham from Great Expectations kind of smell. Architects Club is so far my favorite from Arquiste.
pleasant lingered all day but not over whelming
Smell like the cross between lemon scented furniture polis and a musty closet full of mothballs.
Not what I expected.
I obviously know nothing. I thought it would be an earthy perfume. I was totally wrong. It smelled like my grandmother’s mother and was overbearing. But if that’s what you’re into, than this is for you. In all honesty, this is probably the worst smelling perfume I’ve ever tried.
I like this. It's is very pleasant to smell. I thought I only like stuff like musk,sandalwood,flowers,etc.
To me and my daughter it smells like mens musk. I can't use it. Messes with my breathing.
25 to 34
Honestly I dont know if maybe I personaly am not liking an ingredient of if the whole perfume is just terrible but it was the worst fragrence I have ever smelt. I never wore it.
Did not like this smell , too strong. Not a great scent
This literally smells like old urine. I would be embarrassed to wear this in public.
The worst cologne I have ever smelled
This is, without compare, the worst cologne I have ever smelled. I can't quite place the scent, but it might be a combination of homeless person, dirty socks, and...licorice? It is so bad that I'm actually writing a review. I've been a Scentbird customer for probably two years now and have never written a review. Colognes are like cars - some people like Fords, and some people like Toyotas. It's just choice. This cologne, however, isn't a choice. It is a travesty and an affront to the senses.
It’s was a very musty smell
Didn’t make justice to the uplifting citric Etrog
I was excited to smell all the tones ,It seemed a good combination, It didn’t make justice to the real etrog, the quality for the sprayer and terrible scent are poor ,it smells kind of sour and down depressive and I was expecting more citric and uplifting sweet but woody perfume
No thank you!
At least on me, the woodsiness came off smelling musty. Yuck.
Way too woody and too citrusy. Gave off a scent that's too tangy. Yuck! Old timey scent.
an old scent
this, unfortunately, smells like a scent for your grandfather. There is nothing feminine about it.
Not for me.
Very very very strong. Not a good smell. Older grandma smell.
It smells aweful. Its just not something I like to use.
This perfume is very strong and quite reminiscent of my grandmother. Its just not for me.
25 to 34
I should have read the reviews and thats my fault. My wife and I both gagged a little. It smells like what i would think an old womans wing on a psych ward would smell. I bit musty, mossy, citrus cleaner. Maybe someone's style but definitely not mine. 31/f/nc
35 to 44
Smells very mature
It is a fragrance for an older woman. My mom loved it.
Not what i expected
Horrible will not use at all.
Not for me
I smell like a Viejita
Just not the right scent for what I was expecting for the name an from who it is by but like all others I have ordered
25 to 34
Smells like a church bathroom
A very heavy, overpowering "old lady" scent. It reminds me of Red Door or White Diamonds, etc. (except grosser.) It's a really unpleasant smell in my opinion. I wish I could exchange it. There is absolutely no way I will ever wear this fragrance. :(
35 to 44
Not for me
not sure how this was suggested for me based on my past choices - WAY too strong and smelled like something my grandma would wear....
55 to 64
Old Lady Perfume
Yuck yuck and yuck!
Nice but not for me
It's a pleasant smell but doesn't mix well with my body chemistry
While this cologne settles nicely after 20 or so minutes, I found it too powdery. While I love citrus scents, this was a citrus scent that I was not too fond of. I have been lucky and ordered some hits, but unfortunately this was a miss.
25 to 34
the only good thing is that this parfum last long on me. it has an herb smell that no everybody would like.
25 to 34
Doesn't smell as described
All I caught from this fragrance was sweet licorice. Not my jam.
25 to 34
Smells very bad
Has a very horrible dry smell
Smells like White Diamonds
Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I was just hoping for something different
Smell changes like 3x after you spay it
Wait for it...
Initially, I thought it was awful, overpowering, and close in comparison to the smell of a dirty hippie. After the first spritz, I let it rest on my wrist for a few minutes and I couldnt believe the difference! A TRUE woodsy scent with lemon spice undertones. To me, it resembles DG Light Blue or the Juicy Couture OUI as a base, BUT with more prominent vetiver and earthy elements that really come through after wearing it for awhile.
Kind of gross
This perfume smells awful! I threw it away as soon as I tried it. It's chemically and strong. Not good at all.
first one I didn't care for at all
this was definitely my scent. it was fine in the container but on me it completely changed. I gave it to a friend. smells good on them.
Not at all my taste
Didnt like this perfume at all. It went to trash as soon as I tried.
Seems to last a bit, and it is medium-strength, which is noticeable but not cloying. End notes of etrog--perfect for the Jewish holiday of Sukkot!
I ordered a men’s caloolgne not a women’s. I have texted and emIle scent bird I get generic responses and no help.
I sprayed a few squirts on my wrist and a sudden flashback of 1980 hit me. I could have sworn I just sprayed a can of Aqua Net on myself. First sample I have thrown in the trash.
It’s not my favorite fragrance , felt too strong in my nostril . I like more sutil fragrances
Didn't like it
I can't tell you what this smells like, I just know I don't like it.
Love the long lasting scent
Really enjoyed this scent. It was light but lasted a long time.
Not a scent for me if more for a male than a female. My opinion.
I choose perfumes based on ratings, but this was a complete dud for me. One sniff & I closed it up never to be opened again. It smelled like 90 year old grandmas & NOT in the good, nostalgic way. Gross.
In my opinion it’s a bad idea to choose perfumes based on ratings on scentbird. If you read through the reviews people have no idea what they’re talking about and so the highly rated ones really do nothing for me and after reading reviews on Fragrantica of very low rated perfumes- I have found my favorites.
Yummy but not for aummer
I love this scent but am going to have to save it for winter. To heavy for this time of year.
L'Etrog Acqua Eau de Parfum
what a great scent going to buy a big
Light, sweet, clean
I have been given more compliments about this cologne than any other. Naturally, the scent changes throughout the day, maintaining a clean aroma, as it's been described to me.
Like it and lasts all day
I really liked the scent. Bit of citrus with a homey ending to it. It lasts all day. Just a spray to my wrist and I don't need to reapply.
I happen to like this perfume a lot, it’s strong and elegant. A little citrus with a hung of cologne, really like it
Scent grows on you
When I first sprayed this I almost gagged... it smelled like powdery old man cologne. I didn't like it at all the first day that I wore it. The staying power is unbelievable though. The second day I noticed it dried down nicely to a spicy, woody scent, still a little manly. The subsequent times I have worn it I almost enjoy it, and the scent does definitely last all day with just two sprays on the wrists.
I didn’t like this scent at all. Smelled like an elderly person to me.
Not a big. Lover
Didn’t have the aww factor
My grandmothers Grandmother
This is not a manly smell by any stretch of the imagination. This smell will bring you back to the days of grandma going to church. If I was desperate for a Christmas gift for my Grandmother, this would be it. This should not be under the mens section at all.
love it buyin it
Least favorite fragrance so far
Did not like this at all
Beautiful classic scent that blends well with my body chemistry. I really like it subdued scent that doesn't scream at people.
I really do not like such kind of smell....it reminds me of all those businesses, commercial heavy smell that adult, even old lady wears. it is way too strong to put on me, I guess I should stick to the lighter, fresher side of scent next time, what a failure. now I have to use it as a room spray that I dont even like it. : (
Great fragrance but not very persistent
It’s woodsy and spicy with hints of citrus, but it doesn’t last very long. After 4 hrs. there was no recollection of it on me or my clothes. I wasn’t active during that time frame, nor was I perspiring.
Sweet with a hint of musk
This was my husband's cologne as we both are Scentbird subscribers. He said it's okay and I think it's a nice sweet smell with a hint of musk. It's not as strong as his other colognes.
I really liked this until my sister said it smells like deodorant. It does!
Pretty scent but too masculine for my liking
I enjoyed this fragrance. If mixed well with my personal scent. I really liked it. The woodsy scent and the blend.
Definitely on the masculine side. Its not what I was expecting at all. I will not use my sample. On the plus side, just like other fragrances from Arquiste that I have tried, it is great quality and lasts forever.
Too strong. It gave me a headache
This isnt what I got
It's is very strong sent. I like a lighter scent with more undertones of citrus less woody and warm tones. Not me. It walks in the room 5 minutes before I did. :)
I expected more.
