Description
Cocktail time, March 1930, London. A group of architects gather for cocktails at Mayfair’s smartest Art Deco smoking room. As they settle in the warm interior of dark woods, leather and velvet, London’s bright young things burst in, frosted martinis in hand, surrounded by a cloud of laughter, white smoke and fine vanilla.

High quality ingredients. Long lasting, unique fragrance very sophisticated . Smooth vanilla with wood under tones. One of my favorites.

I really like this fragrance. At first I wasn't a big fan of the woodsy note but I don't notice it much anymore. I mostly just smell vanilla.

I loved this one. Its a fresh woodsy scent that is long lasting but not overbearing. This might be my favorite perfume so far.

This was SUPER woodsy smelling. I got this because I thought it was going to smell more like vanilla, but it didn't. I don't feel good wearing it.

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 loved this one, though I tend to lean towards the musky/woodsy/heavy colognes. This is definitely an evening winter scent. Very yummy!

I really just wanted to try this because of the name, but I'm so glad I did. It's much more wearable then one would think and I'm definitely buying a full size. I love scentbird! I always hate buying full size and end up sticking with one scent, but not anymore!

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.

This fragrance is amazing! Top notes are all cedar/woods, then it transforms into a quite sophisticated vanilla with an exotic citrusy hint. It has become one of my favorites if not THE favorite at this time!

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

Out of the 3 scents I've gotten from Scent Bird so far, this is my favorite. The first time I wore this scent I smelled pepper and vanilla, but as I've worn it the pepper goes away and it smells bright and sweet, but still vanilla. I really do like this one a lot.

Beautiful fragrance! It's a vanilla liquor with a little smokiness. My reason for only 4 hearts is that it doesn't have staying power. Fades significantly after only 30 minutes.

Not an unpleasant scent, but I was expecting something richer and more interesting. Atelier Cologne's Vanille Insensée is a better crafted version of a citrusy vanilla fragrance like this.

This is absolutely gorgeous. Starts with a burst of juniper and citrus, then mellows out to a lovely vanilla- not a sick sweet vanilla, but actual vanilla bean- with a hint of rum. The fragrance could definitely be unisex, and it lasts a long while on my skin. Love it!

This smells almost exactly like Atelier Colognes Vanille Insensee, which I have in full-size. I like it a lot, and it has staying power. It's definitely winter-y, and a little heavier than I usually like to wear.

This is truly a unisex fragrance. I wear it comfortably as a woman, but wouldn't be put off if I smelled this fragrance on a man. It's a sophisticated scent that I can wear to a business meeting or out on the town with hubby.

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. Definitely too strong for the office.. the opposite of a light floral fragrance, but its nice for what its worth, just not for me.
