Love hate relationship, the cologne smell different every time I wear it. Love it at time and other times I feel like it’s not the smell I’m looking for. Overall good scent

Subtle
It kind of reminds me of Hugo Boss 'Tonic'. Maybe its because I bought that cologne while in Amsterdam ldk but I like it. Subtle. Not too extravagant. Elegant. Gets to the point.

Nice, but ordinary
By the description, I expected more complexity and wood. Instead it's heavy on the roses and smells very much like my grandmother's face cream from Merle Norman. It does dry down to a fresh laundry scent. But the overall feeling is one of household products and sundries, not one of a nice perfume. This would be nice as a laundry spray for sheets or to freshen up a stale closet.

High Quality Scent!
Honestly, when I first smelled it I wasn't a fan. However, the way it sets into my body chemistry is absolutely amazing! It is a really sophisticated, high end scent. I wear it to work and any conference or work function. It is a must have. It reeks of quality.

Soft, elegant, clean
So, I'm a sucker for any fragrance with oud in it. I find there are two basic categories of oud scents: the bold, woody, wild ones, and the delicate, powdery, papery ones. This is definitely one of the latter. The best comparison I can make is to the smell of old books in a warm room (bibliophiles, you know what I mean? love it)-that semi-sweet, vanilla-plus-wood aroma, but without the dusty odor that comes from actual old books. This scent is pleasant and inoffensive; it's light, clean, and fresh without being soapy or boring. I will probably end up ordering it again.

Clean and androgynous
Thought this might be a bit too powdery at first - goes on my skin smelling like a lavender drawer sachet, which doesn't sound like a good endorsement, however, it settles in to a good clean subtle soap smell. I agree with the person who compared it to expensive hair products. The downside is that I can hardly smell it after not much time has passed, so as lovely as the smell may be, I'd have to reapply constantly all day long for anyone else to notice it.

I feel super sophisticated with this scent. I’m 27 so ive been on a quest to find a fragrance that smells classy but not too mature/old lady smelling (sorry to all the old ladies out there). This scent reminds me of how my hair smells after leaving the salon and my hair dresser uses all these expensive products that I cant afford 😅 very happy with this scent. Would definitely purchase big bottle if it weren’t $185 haha

versatile and swings both ways ; ]
I chose this because the reviews intrigued me; men insisting it is a women's perfume, women insisting it is obviously for men. They have a point. As I've been wearing it I've discovered masculine and feminine notes. Men like it on me, women like it on me, it seems like it's perfect for my body chemistry and the cool spring we've been having in NYC. I feel a delicate balance of warm and cool spicy notes that make me feel fresh and expensive. One spray on each wrist dabbed on my neck gets me through an eight hour bartending shift no problem, and one spray under the shirt is enough to freshen up to go out dancing afterwards. Best thing I've received from Scentbird so far and the only one of which I'm considering ordering a full bottle.

Amazing from start to finish!
I am exploring oud more, but as the weather warms up I didn't want to keep wearing heavier and single note interpretations. I set my search filters for oud and spring and this perfume popped up. I was excited for the ginger top and of course the oud dry down, but I ended up being blown away by every transformation of this perfume. The floral heart is light, soft, and sometimes even juicy, never overwhelming. This is a joy to wear, lasts about 6-9 hours and is a fantastic spring sent that's just spicy enough to be different. I will almost definitely be buying a full bottle next spring, after I've depleted my collection a bit.

Pleasant
Floral, but not sweet, with a hint of powder and light spice. I wish there was something in there to brighten it up a bit; just a little too boring for me. I usually mix it with Fico di Amalfi to add that extra brightness from the cedar, otherwise it is kind of flat, imo.

Unisex my backside.
This smells a lot like the masculine side of perfume. basically it's a female scent with some traditional male overtones. If your skin chemistry reacts well to more floral notes, this may be for you. As a guy that usually goes citrus, patchouli and cedar this smelled like I was playing around in my octogenarian grandmothers perfume cabinet. Gave to my wife, smells much better on her. Guys - stay away.

Quality, but perhaps better layered.
As I was recently engaged in New Amsterdam, I was eagerly awaiting this and highly (ha.) hopping this could become my 'wedding' scent. Alas, no. It's not bad, just not feminine in any way that I can detect. Not to say it's purely in the masculine camp, either though. I get tonka and tar, then the lotus, and lastly the amber lingering in the background. It never 'settles', it's a scent that keeps you on your toes. You know what...I think I like it.

Fresh, Unfussy Floral
The is a wonderful aquatic/floral blend. Although folks on Fragrantica are claiming it has a lot of rose, I don't get any rose from it at all. Rather, I get an aquatic geranium, a little bit of ginger, and some very mild sandalwood musk. I generally hate musk, so it's got to be very particular and low down in the blend not to bother me! Think a more sophisticated China rain kind of scent. Very nice.

Great scent for the ladies in the office...
This is the reason why I joined Scentbird, to sample cologne that I never heard of...taking a chance, a challenge to try something out of thee box from the standard and usual stuff you buy everywhere else but at Scentbird. This cologne was amazingly new and fresh and was picked up almost immediately by the females in my office...a great scent indeed, that I purchased a bigger bottle...I even doubled up on my monthly sampling supply, hoping to receive two new out of the box scents each month...

Not a conventional masculine scent, but still suitable for man who can appreciate non-traditional scent profiles.
I absolutely love this fragrance and think this is probably due to the wonderful honeysuckle scent. If not for the peppery ginger and wood notes, I would agree with many of the other reviewers that this is primarily for women. Most aesthetics are a completely subjective thing - fragrances are no different. As a man I can definitely appreciate musky, woody, peppery scents, but my palate expands into the floral realm as well. If this describes your preference to some degree then I encourage you to give this a try.

Why?
I felt like they had made a mistake and rebottled the wrong fragrance because it literally smelled like something that was intended for a 70+ old female. I was actually pissed after smelling it on myself when I was out and couldn't wait to get home and change! Definitely one of the worst colognes I've ever smelled, well at least for men. So if you're a 70+ old grandma, than it'll probably knock your socks off.
