First Purchase
For the very first perfume I chose, I can’t say I’m unhappy. I’m not absolutely crazy about it but it is subtle, fresh and I think it’s perfect for my everyday scent. I would recommend this to any woman who like smelling fresh without it being overpowering💛.

Love the scent but problems with change of shipping location.
I love this scent. I have used it for over 20 years. However this was the first time that I have ordered from Scentbird and was told there would be a free cover with the first order. I received notification that the shipping location was changing and there might be a delay in receiving orders from new clients. That was understandable so I was surprised when I got my order much earlier than I expected. I was most disappointed when all that was in the package was just the scent. If Scentbird had gotten the order correct the rating would have been 5 stars. Instead after trying to find a way to contact them on the contact us tab, I gave up and canceled my membership.

My husband and I didn't like this fragrance at all. My husband felt it smelled very feminine. I just didn't like it. Wouldn't purchase this again. It might be good for someone else and we may give it to someone else.

Romantic and classic
First impression, a very sophisticated scent. Strongest notes are the Cedar and oakmoss with undertones of cardamom and spice. Finishes with a bit of citrus. One light spritz would be appropriate for a daytime fragrance, otherwise this seems pretty versatile for a day or night. It’s doesn’t necessarily wow me but it’s a pretty good selection.

Deliciously Warm and Fresh
Upon the first spray, it gave me a very rich cinnamon floral scent. As the day went on it left me with a more familiar smell, of fresh citrus and rain. I think I may have found my new signature scent!

My New Favorite (so far)
This instantly became my favorite from the first spray. I was never big on colognes but always had a bottle of Tiffany’s for Men in the closet. But declaration quickly became a.m. my favorite. It’s scent is pleasant and it last 3/4 of the day. I’m not sure if this is a day or night or a club or work scent but it works for me on all occasions. Must try.

Bad Odor!!!
It reminded me of someone who hasn't showered in days...sweat over and over again....still hasn't showered....then tried to cover it with a cheap cologne. Very pungent body odor in the opening that lasts for the first hour...then it mellows out into a cheap cologne. Luckily I tested it on my skin before wearing to work...so glad I did. I tested it for 2 days...still same bad results. YUCK!

I declare
I have to say this goes on spicy and not much like my profile preference but after a couple of hours it's quite different. I really enjoy the light tone, musky masculine and fresh after the initial. It doesn't have much staying power so reapplying is necessary but can be offensive at first my girlfriend said

verrrry woodsie & almost unisex
This is a nice smell, but it is very woods-ie and on the verge of being too masculine. It was a pleasant smell, a very bold scent. The moment I put it on i kept catching the scent of it and being surprised with how long it held up. So its not that its a bad scent, but just a little much for me.

Fresh, but old
I like the fresh clean smell of this scent, but it reminds me of something my grandmother wears. It reminds me of pure grace, I think is the name of it. My grandmother loves that. She might think I was in her Chester when I see her later. I'm not even sure where I would go with this sent on. It's a lounge scent to me. I'll save it for day I get up shower then just lounge around.

Cardamom is overpowering
The smell of cardamom overpowers the other beautiful notes in this cologne. For the first 3 or 4 hours you smell like you spent the day at an Indian restaurant. Once that subsides you get this delicate scent.

Surprising
This scent caught me off guard. The initial scent is slightly spicy, but the spiciness decays quickly. A bergamot sweetness shines through even my heavy winter coat. It is citrusy and refreshing on top. The most prevalent note is the cardamom mid-notes. They last all day on me, and as they age continue to project enough that I continue to smell it on myself all day as I move around. The amber and tea base notes create a warm and lasting layer which is reminiscent of the heady colognes my father wore. All told, this fragrance is being added to my collection. After two days of wear, it is quickly becoming one of my new favorites.

What I got says Declaration however I can declare it most certainly is NOT! Declaration is one of my favorite scents and I literally have a big bottle but was getting low so I decided to order a month from Scentbird. There was absolutely NOTHING in comparison to the scent of what came versus the actual product I buy at Macy’s. What scentbird calls Declaration by Cartier is spicy and has tones of patchouli and frankly it’s gross! The REAL Declaration by Cartier is AWESOME and its very light and florally with citrus undertones ...

This is by far my most favorite cologne of all time, taking over the top spot from Polo Black. Other top scents have been for me, Kenneth Cole Signature and Black, along with Chrome, Gucci Guilty, and Prada Luna Rosa. I like colognes that last all day and have a memorable scent. Declaration is a more subtle scent than I would normally like, however, the notes are by far the best, if not the strongest. I like the longevity of Guilty and Chrome, and wish they were matched in the subtlety of Polo Black and Luna Rosa. That all said, this is still my all time favorite.
