Description
Architects Club’s opening of bitter orange, lemon peel and angelica adds an old-world charm to this woody, sweet, and spicy perfume. Heart notes of pepper wood, guaiac wood and oak lay down a firm sheet of dark, caramelized spices over a gourmand base of light amber and vanilla absolute.

Warm, mildly sweet, and subtle
I picked this because another reviewer recommended it over Animus Dulcis. The initial burst of vanilla dissipates quickly, and the soft woods linger. I initially smell the bittiness of the juniper berry oil, but the fragrance settles in rather quickly. I refresh about 4-5 hours after the initial spray and find the fragrance pleasant and easy to wear. Very nice for fall and winter and a good match for this mountain girl.

Creamy vanilla skinscent
I don't get anything besides a creamy, high quality vanilla that settles to a skinscent within a half hour. Does last a long while, just doesn't project at all. If you prefer discreet fragrances and like vanilla, could be a winner.

Cozy, yet refined
I love masculine-leaning 'fancy parlor' scents, vanilla tobacco and a glass of scotch, worn leather armchair, old books on fine wooden bookshelves recently cleaned with lemon furniture polish. This one is not shy with the vanilla, and on my skin turns a bit gourmand without losing the woody vibe.This is very similar to Memoirs of a Trespasser by Imaginary Authors. I honestly don't know which one I like more. Both great.

Woody and spicy... yet soft
A wonderful unisex scent, I get a little hit of citrus with the opening notes, but mostly this is an almost-sweet, soft scent. It's main notes are woody and spicy, but not in a bold, Raw Spirit's Wild Fire kind of way (another awesome woody spicy scent if you want one bolder and drier than this). This one is like a woody lightly spiced Cloud, or a very mild incense. I put this on my wrists and fell asleep relaxing to this comforting aroma when I first received it.

Mehh
This is a STRONG scent. It’s very vanilla-y and feminine. It’s more of a “spray in the air and walk through it” type of perfume. If I used more than that, it would give me a headache. If you don’t overdo it, it’s a pretty and girly scent.

Sweet & Smokey
This smells exactly like it’s described. I see a 1950’s lounge singer crooning beside a grand piano while classy men and women hold a cocktail in one hand and a smoke in the other. It’s a warm scent reminiscent of vanilla and whiskey by a wood burning fire. An understated and sensual sweet smell with a little edgy smoke. Very nice.

Woody and dry vanilla
I am really impressed with this scent. Nothing harsh, but it lasts for hours. The dry vanilla and woodsy scent is mild and the citrus and juniper give it enough lift without overtaking the other notes. Awesome stuff! Ages 21 and up would appreciate this the most.

Vanilla and wood, I get chocolate, and so do a lot of people I show this one to, I don’t ask if they smell it as to not suggest it. One of my favorite if not the favorite from scent bird so far. I’ve got myself in a weird spot ordering niche fragrances I don’t understand, this was a nice break from complex and exotic. It still is but it’s so much more likable than anything I’ve got (niche ish wise) that’s my fault completely :)

Vanilla
This is what I call my vanilla perfume. It smells like vanilla mostly. Maybe some woodsy notes thrown in there. This scent could be unisex, I feel. It smells great on me but I think a man could also pull it off. It’s a great scent to wear when the weather is cold.

Vanilla, but make it spicy
I chose this scent, based on the reviews that say it is very sweet. I disagree, although it eventually wears to a dry vanilla scent. Initially it is very strong (tickles my nose) with a heavy musk. I like it more each time I wear it.

I love the layers of sweetness and mild, clean smokiness in this scent. Vanilla is definitely the key player, but it's not a young, sweet vanilla. The woody, smoky notes really ground the vanilla without overwhelming it. Will absolutely buy again.

I love this scent! Woody, like in a carpenter's workshop all day or a new house that's being build. I thought about the architect standing with the blue prints in hand, wearing a bright warm scent (hints of vanilla and lemon peel) watching his or her new design going up. Great unisex scent. I would have give 5 stars, but this scent lasted about 2 hours and was gone. I sprayed my skin and my clothes just to see if one would last longer. Nope. Too bad. I think I will need to layer it with something else in order to have a lasting scent or just reapply throughout the day.

This is probably the best smelling cologne I’ve used in a long time. I’m definitely going to be buying the actual bottle. It does smell rather sweet though so if you’re turned off by that don’t buy it. Smells a lot like amber and musk with a hint of sweetness. My wife loves it.

Love, love, love this scent! It’s rather sweet. Not like Bath&Body works lotion but sweet non the less. I spray one squirt of this and layer it with one squirt of Rag N Bone ‘Oddity’. The combination is great. One is sweet, the other is musky. Great for fall!

Ok. I have a confession. I love smelling like I just left my boyfriend's house and used his cologne before stepping out. I love men's scents but with a touch of warmth and sweetness (just a touch!) This scent....THIS SCENT. Ooh it made me purrrr. It smells RICH. This is a wealthy scent. It smells like money is not a concern for you. It was perfectly androgynous. PERFECTLY. Its warm and has distinct rummy, smoky, muskiness to it which was PERFECT for ushering the crisp cool fall months, with my tweeds and turtlenecks and booties. Im considering maybe a bottle, or maybe adding it again to my queue. I love it. It really blended seamlessly with my personality, and that is what scents should do.

Pleased with how this turned out, I worked about it being too old/bar/smoke smelling. It's feminine and the vanilla is just right (this is my first perfume with vanilla in it in 10 years). It is sophisticated and the longest lasting scent I've received from Scentbird yet. This is what I signed up for, it's like a nice warm vanilla latte.

I love the citrusy opening notes, but they dont last long. After about 10 minutes the scent gets very "cool" and woody rather than warm and woody... it's kind of dry. Then it turns sweet with amber and vanilla and I love it again. That seems to last the longest on me.

Cocktail Lounge at its finest
This is not a scent I'd normally even pick up at the store and try, I go for the more girly, fruity or vanilla scents. I was pleasantly surprised at this perfect for fall parfum. It opened up with the citrus, then shifted to a woodsy, vanilla scent. I could definitely picture a group of architects gathering for cocktails in an Art Deco smoking room reclining in leather chairs, sipping martini's. I like this scent and am looking forward to hearing what others' around me think about it on me. It is a nice fall or evening scent.

Vanilla as it should be
I'm not going to comment on the brisk and pleasant opening; the top notes tell you everything you need to know. What I discovered I love about this scent is the vanilla. It sneaks in early, but in a very unobtrusive, gentle way that belies what it will become as the fragrance progresses. At about the one-hour mark, The Architects Club settles into a warm, dry, slightly smoky vanilla that I find intoxicating. This is no buttercream-bakeshop-your-mom's-rice-pudding vanilla; there's no creamy, cloying sweetness. This is an indolent vanilla lingering over a bed of spicy woods. It's hands-down my favorite vanilla and absolutely perfect for fall. Unfortunately, sillage is nonexistent; it settles into a skin scent very quickly, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, because this vanilla invites a lingering hug. Longevity is moderate; if I bury my nose in my wrist, I can still detect a hint of vanilla at 6 hours, but it's very faint. I give it a 4/10 sillage, 5/10 longevity, and 7/10 overall "wow" factor, but I'd go 10/10 if I'm rating it compared to other vanilla scents. Great value with Scentbird, but I wouldn't buy a FB at this price.

Definitely different
A unique fragrance with an unlikely blend of elements, this one is hard to categorize. At first sniff you get an indulgent whiff of vanilla /tobacco sweetness that dodges being cloying due to the tangy lemon and juniper notes subtly underpinning everything. Add in some woody notes for an unexpected contrast and just a hint of spice, and you've got quite the odd concoction. But inexplicably, this fragrance works. The sweet notes stay dominant throughout wear, which I like, again without being dessert - like, and a light spritz goes a long way. This fragrance is a true original you simply need to smell to experience, and you'll probably love it or hate it. Personally, I can't stop smelling my wrists!

With my first whiff of this scent, I have to say I wasn't sure. It is pretty strong (in fact, one of the strongest I've had so far). But after adjusting to how strong it is, I realized that I really love it. It is very woodsy and musky. So if you aren't into that kind of thing, this is not the scent for you. And it also lasts all day! I never have to think about which scent did I put on this morning?

strong vanilla and rotting vegetation
Not a fan at all. This is the first scent I don't think I can wear. I didn't like the smell just opening the tube, but have had scents change enough with wearing them that I gave it a chance. But it didn't improve on my skin, just extremely strong, headache-inducingly sweet vanilla with a weird rotty-sweetness in the background. I do not get spicy woodsiness, which is what I was expecting from reviews.

Really Lovely--if you like masculine
This a very warm tabacco-woods fragrance, with a touch of vanilla. Sweet enough for many women to like it, but very oaky and smells kind of macho to me. Nice, but I am just too girly for it. I will see if my husband likes it, though his preferences tend to be more on the fresh side.

My new signature scent
I really enjoyed this! It smells sexy and cozy. Not necessarily a Spring or Summer scent but that has not stopped me from using it in the evening. I definitely get the vanilla and lemon and juniper. This is a scent that evokes a room full of intellectuals smoking top notch tobacco in pipes. Kind of a gourmand scent but also on the earthy side. I hate that a bottle is $180! I’m going to need to save up to justify buying this but I will own this.
