Don’t love it, don’t hate it
I’m so on the fence about this one. I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it either. I don’t get gourmand from it at all, which are fragrances that I generally gravitate to. I also don’t get sheer and breezy at all, which is part of its description. It’s a little fruity, but it’s heavier, a bit weighed down, maybe by musk? I can’t put my finger on it. However, just because it doesn’t fit with my usual scents, doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a place in my fragrance library. It does stay for several hours, and the dry down is pleasant.
I do like this perfume but it is very odd, and to me nothing like the description. I don't get orange at all, a little vanilla but more or a straight sweet smell like molasses. The simplest explanation of this scent is a southern gentleman drinking a bottle of sarsaparilla. Which is not a scent I am against, but maybe don't want on my body? It's very confusing. I think it would make a better candle... I may use the rest as house spray.
Better than expected.
I loved the sound of the notes in this but based on the other reviews I was worried. I really like this fragrance, it has a nice natural skin scent with a hint of vanilla.
This scent is clean and crisp. It is long staying so you dont have to reapply by 2 if u put it on at 8 it is amazing and light not overpowering
Not for me
Did not go well with my chemistry. Too strong a scent
Absolutely fell in love with this perfume! It smells so sexy and rich. Just LOVE it!
Solid Scent - Just not my fave
Vanira Moorea comes in like a thunderstorm and mellows to a spring rain. With the first spray you're almost attacked by the petitgrain - it's a really strong note in the initial hour. This bright note is bitter and peppery, but it eventually gives way to vanilla and orange. There also might be a slight floral undertone, but it's very slight. The vanilla scent is almost cloyingly sweet and the orange is a subtle mid-note. To me, this is a more or a mature vanilla, but you have to be willing to put up with that attack of petitgrain at the beginning. If it was the only thing in my perfume collection, I would wear it again, but it's going to have to get in line behind some of the other scents that I prefer more.
Not my scent preference
I was pretty excited to receive this scent based on the scent profile. However, this scent is very strong and heavy for me. I feel it has a strong undertone of anise, which is definitely not the aroma I'm going for. I've worn it a few times and my friends and family say it's not the scent for me. Pro-it lasts a long time! I was able to smell it on me all day.
love th is
I was beginning to lose faith in my ability to choose a perfume based on the description of high notes and low and everything in between. Every perfume I had received was far from anything I would ever wear! When this one arrived I was so pleasantly surprised. It's a very warm perfume, perfect for summer and has a fresh clean scent. Like pulling clothes out of the dryer and burying your face in them.
BERDOUES VANIRA MOOREA
Smells very similar to Hypnotic Poison by Dior. I wore Dior in high school so all the memories flooded in.. while it smells good, I won’t be wearing it. My sister loves it though
Great balance of vanilla and neroli
It’s not the same as Creed’s Sublime Vanille, but the price point makes it a great substitute.
Smells like bug repellent
It smells extremely bitter.. very chemical smelling; similar to bug repellent with a hint of unripened citrus skins. I sprayed some in the air the tiniest bit of mist got on me.. It’s very strong.
Not a fan
This is a GREAT mixture of sweet and tart and spicey. I love it!
I was not expecting for such a sweet sent. I like the smell, just a little sweeter than what i normally wear.
Love how the vanilla changes after the citrus leaves. It gets softer, but stays. Scent lasts most of the day. My new favorite ❤ I would wear all year.
Love it, sweet, doesn't last that long and it gets super softer as the day come along, but I love it, just have to reapply through out the day
This perfume smelled way too licorice-y for me. I am usually a fan of sweet, warm, vanilla scents but this was just an odd combo. Seriously smelled like spiced licorice...
Nothing exciting here
So, after the initial babywipe smell, this kind of has a fizzy orangey-vanilla smarties candy quality to it. And it never really changes. It is fine. Not terribly exciting. I think it is just a very uncomplicated scent. The Assam of India by the same brand is better in my opinion. Equally uncomplicated, but less sweet and youthful. Kind of depends on what you are looking for.
I love this scent! It is not too heavy but it lasts a long time. It's one of my new favorites!
Older than I prefer to smell
This frangrance is the epitome of an older lady who wears rings on every finger (more than one ring on some fingers) and who likes men that drink bourbon, smoke cigars, and wear toupees.
The scent is nice, however, it was too musky for my preference.
I did not like this one, I used it once and it lasted all day (which is usually a plus) but it just wasn't my taste.
Not a fan
A very sharp, odd scent when you first spray it. Very strong and reminds me of a granny perfume. Not at all like the description. Then when it fades it's ok a little vanilla-ish but not very impressive at all and not longneck lasting.
Not a fan
Really did not enjoy this scent at all.
I must not like petitgrain!
I liked this scent it has a powdery flower scent.
Elegant without being cloying or overdone
I was pleasantly surprised, this was my first choice with Scentbird. I went in only knowing that I hate powdery fragrances. I got lucky. This is nice! It’s fresh, upscale, lasts pretty well, and doesn’t make me sneeze
Nice Vanilla Hints
I really enjoy perfumes with notes of vanilla. While I was not accustomed to the initial peppery scents, I did enjoy the perfume once it settled and the scent lasted well into the day.
Good, but not quite great
I love vanilla based perfumes, and almost exclusively wear vanilla, warm, amber based fragrances. This is definitely similar. but I'm not a huge fan of the initial spray. The dry down is lovely, but it's not quite perfection for me. Solid perfume and I would recommend it, but it just didn't wow me.
This actually was complete off from my normal perfumes but I actually loved it.
Initially when I put it on it smelled kind of spicy, which is not what I was looking for. As it melded with my body it started smelling more vanilla-ee. It’s more of a powdery/potpourri/vanilla scent so I’m not 100% into it.
Not My Favorite
This perfume smells good to me when I smell it from the bottle. However, when I put it on, it smells a little soapy. It's not too bad and I've worn it on occasion, but it wouldn't be one that I choose to wear out for a special occasion and I wouldn't purchase it again.
When I first tried it I felt like it was really strong but I decided to give it a chance. Now I will say when dries now it’s a nice warm vanilla. I didn’t think it was bad just not my taste in scent. I prefer more clean and crisp, I’d wear this for a date night.
Not what I thought too stong
So, this perfume smells sickly sweet and tangy, and HEAVY. It reminds me of the old potpourri that my great aunt kept in the bathroom. It's also STRONG. I like more subtle, clean scents. Not my cup of tea. It would, however, be great to cover the smell of #2 if you're embarrassed about that kind of stuff. Though, in my opinion, the scent is hardly better...
Love this on, my favorite one so far.
It is more powdery and floral with a hint of vanilla. Not my favorite...
Very vanilla and musky kind of scent. Not my favorite combo. Lasts long.
I like this perfume. It smells nice and sweet. loving my subscription.
Really love this! It stands out as a different scent from what everyone else is wearing. It definitely has a lasting impression. It starts to wear off by the end of the work day, but since it's not too strong, one extra spritz and you're ready to go!
Really enjoying the fragrance! It’s different then what I️ normally wear. But I️ do really like it
I LOVED this! On first spray, I thought licorice? Fennel? but GOOD, candy, vanilla deep inside comes through quickly, as you wear it some musk comes through and it's a bit fresh. I like that it settles into a comfy scent through the day and lasts all day. Kind of like Lolita Lempicka minus all the heavy fruit, as a matter of fact this would be great layered over LL. Also reminds me of Vanille Insensee, which it would also be great to layer over to amplify the vanilla and add a punch..I like this and think its worth a sniff for anyone who likes interesting vanillas not necessarily just the gourmand, linear, boozy or candy vanillas, I may even buy a bottle if I get really obsessed
This perfume was really sweet, almost baby-powderish to me & is very young smelling. That is not a bad thing, just not the perfume for me. I gave it to my son's 22 year old girlfriend, and she loves it.
Something about this scent is too musky for me. I also smell a lot of amber, which I'm NOT a fan of.
This smells like a French vieja. I personally like the scent but it does become overpowering, musk and powdery scent galore! Watch out Great Gatsby, Berdoues is coming for you.
An old French lady?
This smell like a French vieja, I personally like the scent, however, is powder and musk galore! Watch out Great Gatsby, Berdoues is coming for you.
Love this perfume. Floral and warm on me.
This fragrance is absolutely beautiful! I smell a light vanilla, a light musk and the orange just peeks through, with the sandlewood just giving this a lovely base without being too dry and masculine. It isb't too sweet, young or gourmand, it's fresh clean and lovely.
I am not sure what I was expecting when I read the description of this perfume. I was really excited to try it, but I do not like the way this sits on my skin.
I had such high hopes for this perfume and it was just TERRIBLE ! NOT the sweet and summery fragrance like I hoped just a smelly musky mess.
This is the second scent I picked out and it's not my favorite. Its a little to masculine for my taste. You really smell the sandalwood and vanilla more then anything. If you like masculine smelling perfume then this is perfect for you. But if you like a more floral scene I'd try something else
Omg..I tried this because it was listed as a new offering in an email I received, and it did not disappoint! I am OBSESSED with it. It is exactly as described, a very light, fresh scent, with gourmand undertones. It's not a 'smack you in the face with sweetness' gourmand, but something more subtle, albeit totally delicious. I have nothing that smells like this. It is long-lasting, strong enough (I hate weak performers) and smells absolutely amazing. If you're considering trying this one, do it!!
It is kinda masculine . I was not my favorite too much vanilla and sandalwood. Lucky my daughter loves it
While I love this fragrance. It just doesn't last on my skin. I spray it and an hour later it's gone. So sad because it's a beautiful fragrance.
Unfortunately I isn't get any of the notes the fragrance is said to have. In fact I didn't even spray it, just a sniff test and it was a hard no. Smells very old and reminds me of an bathroom air freshener my grandma used to have. I tried wearing it today and it definitely lasts. Much to my dismay. I'm about ready to cancel my subscription. No idea what I'm supposed to do with this.
Everyone that has smelled this on me loves it! It's soft and light. An almost beachy smell. I am 40 and my friends in their 20s and 30 love it. I will get more of this.
When you first smell this perfume it smells exactly as it should it floral and citrusy but then it just has a weird "after" smell. I love the initial smell but can not get past the way it smells after it settles into your skin. I can't really describe it.
Love this scent! When I first sprayed it I didn't think I would like it, there was something that stung my nose. But after being on my skin the scent is soft and not over powering. Going to purchase this fragrance. The only down side is that when sample came it leaked during shipment so I only received only half of a sample.
Something about it I just don't like. The citrus is not citrusy - it is flowery, as in orange blossom. I am giving it away.
I am obsessed with this scent. It is sweet and yummy without smelling like something a kid/teenager would wear. The citrus is soft, not bitter. I am definitely going to buy a full size bottle.
