Arquiste The Architects Club description

Arquiste’s Architects Club is a woody, sweet and spicy perfume with hints of lemon and orange citrus.

It exudes an aura of sophisticated, old world luxury,with a refined masculinity that hearkens back to the Roaring 20’s. Which is as it should be, as this perfume’s backstory is about a gathering of architects in a men’s club in the trendy Mayfair district of London.

LOVE!
Scent does wear off about halfway through the day, but the vanilla aroma that coats you for hours is simply too good to not reapply. Ive gotten countless compliments & cannot stop spraying this little guy everywhere!

Overpowering
Way too strong. Was hoping more for a woodsy, musk smell. This screams old lady in a bingo hall. The smell was absolutely nauseating. I'm finding more of the scents that are described by scentbird borderlining offensive. I know many of these are suppose to be namebrand, but several of them come off as smelling like some horrible cleaning product you'd use.

This is the most amazing fragrance I’ve ever smelled. It’s the perfect mix of masculine and feminine. It’s intense 1-2 sprays last the entire day. I find myself catching a glimpse of the scent all afternoon. A new favorite for sure and I’ve added it back into my queue for another bottle.

Uhhh WHAT!?!
This. This is something! So at first spritz it smelled like citrusy/spicy which was good. But THEN the dry down went from spicy vanilla to a Spicy. vanilla, wood GOODNESS!!! I think fall is the PERFECT time to wear this scent, but honestly I think it would work any time! I truly LOVE this scent so far and I think anyone who isn’t into fruity/flowery scents would LOVE this just as much!

This perfume is completely wonderful. A very smooth, silky scent, with hints of woodsy musk and spices. The citrus is not strong or sour at all. It goes on slightly strong (so spray lightly), but dries to the most luscious scent. It will not disappoint and has instantly become my new favorite!

My Jam!
This is my favorite perfume that I've gotten from Scentbird. It's my kind of scent. I love spicy, warm, wintery scents all year. I love the Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon perfume and this reminds me a lot of that. Its a smoky, interesting vanilla. I can't see a man wanting to wear this, even though it says for a man or woman. If you love "wintery" vanilla scents I thing you'll love this.

Warm, soft, sexy.
I love the way this smells on my boyfriend. I got it for him originally and all of my friends unanimously liked it. I was worried about it accidentally attracting attention to him so now I wear it and it makes me feel like I’m wrapped in an oversized cashmere sweater. It’s warm and buttery. It’s a gourmand scent and if I had know that beforehand I definitely would not have queued it but I’m so glad it did. It’s really so attractive on men. It has a woody-leathery undertone that lends well as a men’s scent. This is one I will probably buy the whole bottle of when I run out.

Nice staying power, woodsy vanilla
When it goes on it smells like you sprayed vanilla extract on. But give it time to settle and it comes out as a deeper more complex scent. On me it was not sweet at all, which I liked. It has some other elements that ground the vanilla and I enjoyed it, not enough to be my go to, but enough to put it in the rotation. One day I noticed that I could still smell it on my skin about 11 hours after I put it on.

Perfect Vanilla
This scent is pure heaven on my skin! From the notes I was worried about the juniper berries making it too herbal for my taste, but it is just subtle enough to keep it from being too sweet or smelling green. More on the soft side of sillage and longevity, but slightly stronger than just a skin scent. Beautiful!

Headache inducing, didn't work with my chemistry
I really wanted to love this fragrance. Unfortunately, it did not work well with my body chemistry and remained a sickly sweet and cloying vanilla throughout the entire dry down. After a little while, catching the scent on my skin and clothes began giving me a sharp headache.

Great scent!
Loved this scent! I think I'll buy a whole bottle to keep! Main notes were vanilla and a sweet sort of smokey scent with a hint of citrus. It was exactly the kind of new scent I was looking for to use on a date night. Sweet but not overly sweet, and still light. Not a walking cupcake, but can make you crave a little something for dessert ;) Perfect for spring, summer or fall, imo.

A favorite!!!
This is by far one of my favorite scents that I have gotten so far!! At first I was unsure, but I waited a few days and tried it again, and after it settled, I LOVED it!! It's a great fall/ winter scent as it has that nice peppery, smoky side. But it settles to a nice warm vanilla. It's not sickly sweet or sugary, it's just homey! It also leaves clothes smelling so nice! I know I said it's a fall/ winter scent, but I still put it on once in a while even in summer because it's just a great scent!

This scent is gorgeous. It's warm and creamy with some lovely bright notes and a touch of sweetness. Definitley not a typical saccharine vanilla, but it does lean to the more feminine side of unisex. One of my very favorites I've gotten through Scentbird. I would wear this every day.

Warm
I'm not a fan of florals, so if you are, this review may not resonate with you. This scent is very nice; strong, but not overpowering. Definitely unisex. As others have said, you get the juniper at first, then it dries to a smoky vanilla. A friend of mine tried it as well, but on her it dried down to more of a pleasant, citrusy scent. If you like Tom Ford Noir Pour Femme, there's a good chance this will appeal to you too.

The Architects Club
In the opening it smells bright with citrus and juniper/gin dominating. After 10-15 minutes, the woods start becoming more prominent, with a slight sweetness from the guaiac. Not too long later the vanilla starts to become noticeable. I find it a dry, not sweet, vanilla, more like vanilla absolute. As it dries down it is vanilla, woods, and a little smoke. Not a gourmand fragrance at all, you won’t be mistaken for a cupcake wearing this. Very warm and cozy with moderate sillage. After a few hours it stops projecting and becomes a skin scent, wish it could keep the projection up but I enjoy the opening (would love a long lasting fragrance of the opening) and development into the drydown so I don’t mind reapplying, it’s not a linear fragrance. Very unisex, sophisticated fragrance.

My new signature scent!
I chose this scent based off the name at first TBH. I’m an architectural designer and thought it sounded cool. I came to scentbird because I had zero knowledge in terms of fragrance nor any clue what my go-to scent was and I’m happy to say, I’ve found it. This scent is rich and luxurious but never overbearing (when applied properly) and the absolute best part is that it lasts ALL day. I hate when a perfume has no lasting power! My previous favorite of the ones I’ve tried so far was Glossier but even that didn’t have the all day staying power of this. Will be purchasing the full sized bottle!

The first ever spray was delicious, but soon after it smells like old paper, orlike all sample scents in magazines smell. As is dries down it smells musty, like a damp wood cabin in the woods. The vanilla part is sweet. It projexts well and lasts all day long. Not my favorite. Probably better on oyhrr people.

Smoky deep Vanilla with pronounced alcohol smell
I think this is a very deep vanilla and the lemon notes are evident right off the top. It then mellows out and you a get a smoky and deep vanilla. I can't decide if it's almost a bit to heavy and alcohol-smelling or if that's what it's supposed to smell like. It would be perfect if I didn't get so much alcohol on the first smell.

Warm vanilla
Reminds me of the very expensive Atelier cologne vanille insensee, so I love this fragrance. Definitely a fall/winter scent. Think walk in the woods with your favorite person, sipping a vanilla latte. If you do not like vanilla pass this one up. But I disagree with those that say it smells like a cake or candle. I would purchase.

Something about this
Reviews aren’t wrong when they tell you that you will smell a bit like vanilla extract, potentially. It’s strong and rude and even maybe overbearing. Initially when you spray, the juniper berry and guaiac wood hit you in the face. It does smell smoky. It reminds me of mezcal, but given the name and inspiration of the fragrance, that wasn’t a bad thing. Once the guaiac calms down a bit, the vanilla takes over, and it really does entirely take over. It warms and gets cozy and surrounds you. Vanilla is, for me, one of the most comforting smells on earth. I wasn’t at all put off by this, and not even at its initial sharpness (which does have a vanilla extract vibe). It’s this vanilla that actually keeps me coming back to this scent. It’s just so damn comforting and warm and gorgeous. I wear this alone. I wear it on road trips. I wear it when I need some cheering up. I love this fragrance and won’t be put off by the price when I buy the bottle.

Wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It’s a bit spicy when you first spray it on, but within minutes, it became sweet, but not too sweet. It’s sophisticated and delicious and warm all at once. I smell my wrists all day now because it’s so nice, and it lasts most of the day, slowly fades into a nice lingering scent. Highly recommend for those who don’t like the super sweets or flowery smells, but don’t enjoy the deep Woody ones either.

For vanilla fans
I'm definitely a vanilla fan, so I don't mind that it's this fragrance's primary note. It is not, however, it's only note. The first spritz offers plenty of that fresh lemony zest, and there are more complex underlying woody notes as the fragrance chills out over time. It's warm and delicious and I'm happy every time I put it on.

Birthday cake perfume
If you like birthday cake ice cream, or literally eat a spoon of sugar everyday then you may like this perfume. This doesn’t scream roaring 20s to me, it screams sweet vanilla. The woody notes that were supposed to be there are completely lost on me. This is a major miss by scentbird recommendations for me. Hope they turn it around soon. The only saving grace to this is that I now have a 30 day supply of bathroom air freshener now.

Warmth, depth, spicy sweet
I adore this scent. It's a deep, sweet vanilla that is like reclining in a leather chair on a Sunday afternoon with a glass of hot buttered rum. It's the only scent in recent memory I have gotten multiple compliments on in one night, as well. I rarely give 5 stars but this is just too delicious.

Wannabe
So, first off I'll say that all perfumes smell slightly different on everyone. This one does not smell nice on me. At first it's salty, as if it WANTS to be fresh, but it initially lands as salty & masculine. Then it settles down to scent that wants to be soft & feminine but ends up being a flat powdery vanilla. In the middle I can't tell what it's doing. It's trying to be something fresh and yummy, but ends up being flat & boring. Not a good scent if your signature scent is sexy floral with uniqueness. This one sounds fresh with uniqueness, but ends up being flat, like a pre-teen girl.

I don't imagine this is what architects smell like, but it was nice, had good longevity. This will not make it into the collection at that price. If I'm going to spend that much coin, it better call to me.

Comfort
This perfume goes on with a more woodsy leathery type smell and dries quickly to a vanilla, but not an artificial vanilla a deep vanilla. It reminds me of my grandmother when I was a young girl and the gold Victoria secret talc bottle of vanilla she always used. It’s warm and comforting like a chunky blanket.

Heavy on vanilla
I'm on the fence about this one. It goes on bright and complex, with citrus and pepper, but it quickly flattens out to mostly vanilla with an undertone of vetiver. It's not bad, but I don't adore it. It's got the potential for an interesting complexity, as it continues changing throughout the day, but the vanilla note still drowns out the rest a little too often.

I ADORE this scent
This is an amazing scent. It is a dry vanilla - more like an actual vanilla bean and less like a sweet cupcake smell. There is also a clear burst of juniper/gin smell in the opening, and it dries down to a lovely blend of vanilla and wood. It is definitely a sophisticated scent, and high quality (like all Arquiste fragrances are). It you are a fan of the ultra-sweet, ultra-fruity celebrity scents, this won't be for you. I reach for this one all the time - it is unique, well-blended and gorgeous!

Hated for the first day, loved for the next 30
This scent definitely has all of the scent qualities I love: clove, sandalwood, and a dark fruit. The clove is very upfront and strong, so a light wrist/neck dan is all you need: It also its long lasting, which on the first day I did not enjoy and was not used to. I usually wear a more floral and spiced perfumes, and this was perfect once I got used to wearing it. It blended with my pheromones extremely well and I got so many compliments. I'm actually going to buy it as the full bottle at some point as it will be missed.

Not bad
Started off with a creamy spicy vanilla flavor then the woods & tobacco kick in... really nice fragrance with perfect projection. My only complaint is the longevity is a bit weak... Definitely worth a try. High quality juice for sure.

I love this scent! I was a little hesitant because of the equal mix of good and bad reviews but it turned out to be a good choice for my first scent! It starts out very powdery and harsh with a woodsy smell but it dries to a warm vanillaish scent that works perfectly with my chemistry. I will without a doubt buy the full version of this at some point!

Oh, I wanted to love this scent, but it has--sadly--been my least favorite despite being the most highly anticipated. Here is why: It does smell strongly of vanilla at first spritz, but the combo of heavy wood undertones gives it more of a slightly alcoholic vanilla extract twang in an abrasive rather than warm way. After that, it switches to a woodsy, cedar-like spiciness (which I would normally like) with an undertone of something...off. Like walking through a yummy cedar forest with a chemical plant next door. It might be my body chemistry because my experience seems to be very different from other reviewers, but it is a very overwhelming scent. On top of that, I could never smell any juniper which was the main reason I selected Arquiste...juniper and vanilla together sounds divine, right? Too bad it never happens. And if I kinda disliked this scent, my husband DESPISED it. He made me wash it off...and then wash it off again because he could "still smell it". It is the most negative reaction I have received from him concerning a perfume. The only reason I gave this scent 2 hearts instead of 1 is that it DOES have superb lasting power...even when you are trying to wash it off. I tried it again a week later and it lasted at full strength for hours. Obviously it was made from some serious stuff.

This perfume is a very VERY woodsy scent. I smell cedar instantly with a little bit of vanilla. This is an odd perfume for me because I kind of like it, then again I don't. I feel if you had a husband in the wood working business of any kind, he would LOVE this scent on you. This scent is almost like opening up a bag of cedar wood chips and they threw in a handful of vanilla pods. I picture those things when I spray this. To me, cedar is a refreshing smell as well as vanilla is calming. I have just never smelt anything like it in perfume. I think I'll wear this a few times. Definitely not an every day perfume for me.

This has a really good smell. My wife and I both like it and we usually don't like the same smells. There are some light citrus notes but also an earthy smell. There is a little more musk or floral smell than I like and it's why I did not give a 5 rating. I do think most people would enjoy this one and I would recommend it to friends.

Very interesting scent. I love the vanilla tones that it starts with, although it quickly fades into a strong black pepper scent. That's not a bad scent, it just overpowers the vanilla for awhile. Over time with exposure to heat and air it blends a little better and is quite enjoyable. It also is pretty long lasting - I noticed about 6 hours after I applied it that I could still smell a pleasant lingering hint of the scent.

I don't think I've ever loved a perfume more. I find it beautiful to the point of heartbreak, actually. This is the reason I sniff perfumes everywhere: I'm always hoping to find something that takes hold of me the way this moody, nostalgic, confounding perfume does. It's smoky without the charred lingering bottom note of most smoky scents; there's vanilla, there's booze--gin maybe--there's something grassy...and somehow all my memories were also packed into that little cylinder. It reminds me that there are always layers to things. To say I love it is almost to damn it with faint praise. I want to live in the Architect's Club.

I like Architects Club, but I don't love it. It projects pretty loudly on my skin, so it won't work in my office. I also get the bourbon/smoky vanilla, but not the juniper and other herb notes. That said, I will put this away until next winter and try it again then. This definitely won't work in the Spring and summer months. This is very similar to Atelier Vanilla Insensee to my nose, and I like that one a bit better. Summary: OK, but not one I'll buy in FB size!

the vanilla took over the cardamom on me ...but thankfully not too sweet... as it begins to dry down ..a nice not too powdery wood emerges... & a bit of the cardamom... what I did to make this more of a "me" scent is to add a couple drops pure cardamom essential oil to a non scented lotion & apply that to my skin before spraying on the scent... this works & improves the lasting power as well

I really enjoyed this perfume, it starts out with a bright vanilla musk, but slowly becomes this bright peppery kick. After an hour or so, I just smelled this bright, black pepper scent. It's definitely not your typical vanilla perfume - it's a bit more sophisticated and alluring than that. I'd have given it 5 hearts, but after a few hours the bright peppery scent starts to get on my nerves so I have to reapply to bring back in the vanilla musk scent.

This smells so much like Diptyque Eau Duelle to me. It's a dry warm, woodsy vanilla. It's also a little boozy, and a tiny bit smoky (more tobacco, than fireplace), but not sweet, or candy-like. It's very elegant and refined, and definitely is unisex. I'm shocked by how many reviews says it is soft and mild and perfect for summer - I disagree strongly - I think this is a winter scent! Perfect for the holidays (I took it with me for Christmas) and the winter months.

Kind of smells like chocolate. Its definitely not for me, I took a chance because it was described to have Lemon notes in it.. but all I can smell is a dark, chocolaty, wood. Quite musky too.
