I smell like a fresh bakery
I can’t stop sniffing my wrist when I put this on! The first spritz had a bit of citrus and was pretty boozy, but after an hour is was the warmest woodiest vanilla. Loved it.

Very powdery, but pleasant
I would say this is a pretty unique scent. Though the notes were as described, I would say the powdery note comes through a lot more than was indicated. I was expecting this to be a bit fresher and suitable for young women given the citrusy top notes it is supposed to have, but El Born is definitely a more mature scent. The vanilla is very nicely done; it doesn't smell like a cupcake or candle. It's almost like the smokey husk of a vanilla bean pod. It's really lovely and a little warm while still also being quite fresh, but on me, it's definitely still a bit powdery as well.

Top Notch Scent
A whole lot of effort went into this scent. My hat is completely off to Sara Carner on this one. I believe she struck gold with this scent. This is a must try for you. It has kind of a smoky vanilla scent, it's smooth, and it wears for a long time. It's very unique and by far one of my favorites....and rightly so if you see the price tag on it. It's worth every penny.

Was looking forward to trying this one per reviews. I have Tardes and love the layers on that one. Weird boozy Lifesavers Wintergreen Mint/Medicinal smell over fruit/leather. Would have liked this if more woody without the screeching medicinal smell. Drydown is okay, will have to try out in fall/winter.

Vanilla Up In It
Maybe it’s my association with vanilla being in female-focused scents. This one came off powerfully vanilla and seemed to lean more that direction. Not bad by any means.

This is a mysterious scent
my issue it's this is that I normally like unisex fragrances- but it was so masculine. I could not help but feel like I was wearing my dad's cologne. it'smature sent its spicy yet it has that hit of vanilla and it just was not for me. it doesn't smell bad it's a pleasant scent it's sophisticated it's complex but it's not for me.

Lovely opening, but sadly fades too quickly.
This smells so warm and lovely. The opening is lightly floral with a good dose of honey. It's not sicking sweet, just sweet enough to remind your of sunshine on a cold day, but without being in gourmand territory. Then opening is so lovely and it dies down to a beautiful warm blanket of light cozy floral-honey with some warming resin. Sadly it fades on me after a couple of hours to basically nothing after about 4 to 5 hours. However re-applying is a joy, that opening is just fantastic.

Winter warmth
This scent is masculine and familiar to me but it has sweetness in it that makes me think of my nights in California. It was named after Born, a place I have never been, so maybe it's supposed to take you somewhere else. It's got cigar qualities to it. Like a sexy mature lawyer is relaxing at a vineyard estate furnished with high-end leather furniture and he already smells like toffee vanilla cigars. I think it would be nice for fall and winter but it's much too heavy for summer, in my opinion. Not a very feminine fragrance unless you want to smell like your boyfriend just bathed you.
