Selva do Brazil is a green citrus-based scent, featuring a watery Paraguayan petitgrain note at the top. You can feel the moisture slowly falling from the high branches overhead as you walk further into the canopy of a fantasy Brazilian forest. Smoky tonka and rich, deep guaiac wood rise like burnt ceremonial offerings sent up on the altar in the village you arrive in at the forest’s edge.

3 out of 5

Sultry.... Love it
Age: 25 to 34
Skin type: Combination
True to description, minus staying power.
Someone next to me would not be able to smell it and it's gone within the hour, even as a skin scent. That being said, I'm halfway through the bottle and it's barely been two weeks. Fresh, woodsy (not at all fruity), squarely unisex, invigorating, vegetal, maybe some ozonic notes in there as well. Lovingly balanced with ...some note I do not yet know. I just really wish it lasted :(

Definitely not for me
Toooooo earthy and green, the swell is more of an evergreen scented cleaning product.
Reminds me of an Indian Soap!
It smells like a soap called Margo..its not a feminine for sure. Its a green fragrance but smthin I am not a fan of..
Age: 45 to 54

Age: 25 to 34

A green scent with a bit of spice. Not long lasting on me, but other than that it was great!
It smells like rain in the very best way
I love it!!!!!!
it is a great daily pick me upper! The smells invigorates me... absolutely love it!
Don't care for the fragrance..
I like the undertones of this scent but there's something in this perfume that burns my nose. I am giving 3 instead of 2 stars because it might be an allergic reaction or sensitivity that others don't have. I know that I would love this scent if I didn't have this reaction
BERDOUES perfume wonderful. i love it.
Could be a pretty scent but it just was not for me.
This reminded me of a beautiful rainforest during the summer
Green and wild
This smells like a jungle at night. Dark, green, and sultry. And somehow it manages to do this without getting cloying or musty. I think this would be a great date night perfume for someone who doesn't like traditional, heavy "going out" scents. I took away one star because while it really is lovely, it lacks much staying power.
Green and crisp - then dark
This is a very strange, dark, green, scent. It’s musty and fresh at the same time - it really does remind me of the jungle. It’s not for everyone - it’s weird in a good way.
Nice, not amazing
It's a nice scent. But not for me.
Selva Do Brazil = Dolce (green bottle)
This Selva Do Brazil scent smells exactly like the Dolce and Gabana "Dolce" it's in a green bottle but with a woody scent. The woody scent isn't over powering however the scent doesn't last long at all. You spray it on & it will last for about 10-20 minutes and then the scent is gone. It smells good it's very light fresh and green but definitely doesn't last.
Thanks for the comparison. I was thinking about trying this. I already tried Dolce and it was nothing special. And you're right about the fact that it only lasts about 20 minutes.
Perfect for balmy summer days in The City
This sprayed very sharp and hollow, which was deceiving. After 1 minute it set and was full of soul and delight. This smells like what New York City feels like in the summer. Walking in the treelined streets along crowds of people, modern skyscrapers, and historic pre-war structures in the day while the sun is blazing. Or, lounging outdoors in an elegant evening oasis of a bar by the river with a friend or two. Every time I get a whiff of this powdery, woody scent balanced with vanilla-sweet-florals, I feel a little bit of this excitement and majesty. This scent is described as an autumn scent but I would prefer to wear it in high summer. Blends well with sweat & heat.
Bought and then returned.
I smelled this at a boutique, went home, then went back to the store to buy because I couldn't stop thinking about it. Then after a couple wears, I returned it because it just wasn't for me. I loved the initial crisp green nature/woods/plants type scent, but there's a weird powdery backdrop to that. I wouldn't say it is a manly scent as some other reviews have. It's just not for me. Definitely a unique clean and crisp fragrance.
Daring to try new scents-
I do not generally like oriental fragrances, yet I continue to try new scents, because ya just never know what may hit you just the right way! This was not one of those scents that did NOT hit me in a positive way, yet I can appreciate that others may like it. I keep smelling it on my wrist and have this interest/adversion, it has sort of a powdery quality- I do not like powdery (smokey) scents. It also has kind of a peppery undertone-I hate peppery scents. It also strikes me as masculine, and traditional ( read "for old men"). I set with it for a goo 20 mins and now will need to wash it off! I will pass this one to my neighbor.
I had to throw it away because it made me smell like I just smoked a couple cigarettes.
Definitely not for me.
As soon as I removed it from the box I applied it. It did not smell pleasant at all. I had to shower to get rid of the smell but it still lingered in my house and car. One of my least favorites
On me it smells very masculine. This would be a great men's cologne.
Smells okay but was not for me
Almost too spicy
This perfume is wonderful if you are looking for a spicy almost astringent smell. It’s a great perfume just not quite what I was looking for!
Fresh AND warm!
I really enjoy the botanical qualities of this scent, and it has a touch of floral to keep it lush. It is surprisingly warm and fresh at the same time. I wear it for daytime, and it could transition to evening as well. This morning I was leaving on a trip and as my husband and I embraced, saying good-bye, he said "Oh, that's a new one, and I really like it!" #sold!
i really like this perfume. its warm and woody and still smells clean. if it lasted longer id be hooked! but i feel like it fades quickly
I picked this scent to go away from my usual perfume. It’s ok. It has a beautiful soft smell, but a unique finish. I still haven’t decided if I like it or not. As other customers have stated, it does not last long
Light and floral
This is a good spring scent. Light and airy with fresh floral tones.
Strong scent but not long-lasting
I really loved the scent, quite different from what I wear everyday. The downside is that it is not long lasting.
Too woody for me
Too woody smelling the packaging is what got my attention if i would have looked at the scent notes i would have know i did like it
Not long lasting
It smells strong when first going on but the scent is gone within an hour.
A bit too woody for me, doesn't last long either.
Nice clean light scent. I would agree with others though that it really doesn't last but it smells lovely!
Nice everyday scent
Lasted a really long time.
Perfect out-with-the-girls or casual date night scent
This one is fun and sexy without being too much! It tends to last a while too.
Didn’t like the scent once in my skin it smelled funny
This was not what I was expecting this is smelt so bad
WAY too sweet! Not green smelling at all, as you would think from the description. Ghastly.
Exotic and Beautifully Unique
One of the favorites! Very exotic scents so it's definitively not for everyone. I've gotten either great compliments or confused faces followed by "what is that smell?" But me personally I LOVE. Smells if very mature, wood-like scent. It does last long on my skin and clothes which is very important for me. Overall I do recommend you try it for a while before totally dismissing it.
The scent is just not for me
The scent comes off as an odd mix and settles into a bland one. won't be buying anytime soon
I loved this one!! I don’t like overly sweet or floral perfumes. This has a woodsy smell but doesn’t become overwhelming
I love the combination of woodsy and fresh in this perfume. Wish it lasted longer...
I think this is one of my favorite scents. It is green and fresh with a spice to it. A woodsy kind of note. I love the combination .
Smells like an 85 year old grandmother. Hated it1 Overpowering and too sweet.
Literally hated this perfume. Had to take off the sweatshirt I tried it on in, in less than five minutes before I got sick. Way to strong, smelled like an old lady perfume. Just totally wasn’t my taste.
Very sweet upfront, then spicy/peppery...literally. Ends up making it an undesirable scent.
Did not like this scent. Too strong
Just received and so-far I like it. Light, earthy with musk as the first note I smell.
Love the fragrance. Not sweet but very delicate. Love the herbal undertones
When you first put on this perfume it smells fresh and bright and green. Growing up we had a whole slew of honeysuckle next to our front door and this scent kind of reminds me of that. It’s not AS sweet as a honeysuckle, but it’s fresh and bright. This is definitely a scent for people who LOVE being outdoors and frolicking in a garden or the woods. But it’s not a dark musty woods scent. No - it’s a light, clean smell of like a florist shop without the heavy/unnecessary floral smell. However, as the smell starts to mellow out on my skin it does start to smell a bit floral-y, but it’s not a heavy floral. This smell is not my PERSONAL favorite (which is why I'm rating it a three), but if I were about to spend a long time on a plane or something, I might wear it again to get that fresh air kind of smell. I could see where some people might say that it smells a bit mature because there is that sort of powdery smell on a back note, but I don’t think that I’d say it’s like OLD mature more of a CLASSY mature.
This was a really fresh and fun perfume that happily dried down to softer notes with less sharpness. Typically I stay away from fresh notes because they wear too harsh on me, but luckily this was not the case. I just wish it lasted longer.
The scent is ok. Smells sort of like bug spray at first lol. But it's too mature for me. Almost too elderly. It's ok, I'll probably barely wear it.
Muskybut not bad. I like either a fresh scent or fruity.
Didn't care for this one as much as I'd hoped I would. Has kindof a musky smell to it. Certainly doesn't smell bad, though :)
It's a bit strong when you first spray it on but now it really is a nice light scent
