This scent is warm and seductive. It's a little heavier, and a little goes a long way- but not like an old lady scent at all. More like a sexy woman who knows exactly what she wants vs. a flirty social butterfly. Happy hunting! ;)

You can smell a great perfum as soon as you spray it. It is a mix of fruits with flowers, perfect combination. The only thing I did not like is that it does not last so long and after a couple hours you can not smell it anymore.

You can’t go into this fragrance expecting Moschino or Juicy or Omnia. It’s not that. And it is heady and vintage to enough of a degree that you’ll feel old if you aren’t looking for that. The scent sort of captivated me. It may be too much for some people, but it is far from unpleasant. The fruit prevents it from being truly old. More than anything, this is classy to me. It’s seeetness lends to its complexity. I also truly love the oak moss. I’d wear this to something important if I want to leave an impression. It’s too serious for date night and too refined for daily. It has a personality- something like alpha woman. But I like it’s flair so I want at least a rollerball around.

It was much stronger than I expected and took me by surprise a little. I'm not a huge fan of the musky tones but it does last long and after a few minutes the overall scent is less intense and has a more lighter feel. Would be good for an outdoor summer night or winter events with a sweater.

This perfume smells really nice but the sharp tones (kinda like an aftertaste) just don’t make me love it. I wore it one day and every time I smelled one of the sharper tones I wished I could get rid of it. I do like the softer notes within it though.

I was very excited about this one, unfortunately it smells very much like an old lady soap & perfume mixto me. It is heavy and warm, but has almost a soapy bite to it. It completely lacks any excitement or sensuality and is surprisingly bland for such a heavy perfume.

When I first subscribed, I wanted to get this perfume first, but I put it off for a whole year until now. I've recognized that I tend to like heavier, woodier scents (I hate the terms "mature" and "grandma-y"!) and this really fits the bill. I wish that I'd gotten it sooner because I really love it. It isn't so heavy that it's suffocates you, but it lasts and I think it smells wonderful on me.

I won't pretend to be an expert on perfume, that's part of the reason I joined here. I did get a tester kit once from a firm that shall remain unnamed based on geranium and this reminds me of that. Rather than a slow, easy elegance reminiscent of hot, New Orleans nights this sort of batters me in the nose rather like mma practice.

I decided to try something outside my comfort zone. This perfume is in the same family as Paloma Picasso and Knowing by Estee Lauder so there is no vanilla or sweetness to it. It seems like a lighter version of those two fragrances with additional musky notes. I appreciate it for being different and well blended but I wouldn't buy a full bottle. It's fun to get to try new things with Scentbird. I think I'll keep subscribing for another year!

One word sums up how I feel about this scent... perplexed. I don't hate it, but not in love with it. I like something about it but not sure. Maybe it the gardenia, cause I do tend to like perfumes with that note. It's very sweet at first, almost too fruity/floral. Then there is a note later that reminds me of burnt coffee... you know that smell when the pot was left on with just a tiny bit and it dried to the bottom? Not unpleasant, but not quite "there". It's not a constant note, more a passing whiff now and again. It's a mature scent but not "old lady". Will give it a few more tries and see if I have other thoughts or a change of opinion. Overall, not bad but not something I am in love with. Maybe a good "back up" scent or for when I want something different.

This is very nice. Very unique, interesting, sophisticated and wearable take on gardenia perfume (of which I'm not typically a huge fan). It's definitely got some chypre/oakmoss kick to it, which I personally find delightful and harder to find these days, but may not be for everyone. I really like this perfume and the bottle is fantastic. I'll probably end up buying a full size.

The initial spray is very bold and a bit sharp. I almost scrub b ed it off, but I'm glad I didn't. My husband came home about an hour after I tried it on, and what he gave me a kiss as, he immediately noted that I smelled great. It is worth allowing to develop. I find it a little bohemian in the dry down. Maybe it's the strawberry note (not shown here but is a note) and rhubarb.... I live in Maine where those two ingredients are summer faves, and it reminds me of farmers markets and drives on winding coastal roads through artsy small towns, with the top down.

I'm dying at the reviews calling this an "old lady scent" for someone in their 40s/50s. You'll get here, darlings. When I think old lady scents, I think of heavy florals with a touch of menthol. I guess it's all perspective. 😂 Anyway, at 44 I clearly qualify for old lady according to other reviewers - and I love this fragrance. It's definitely not an every day scent - it's dark and sultry. It is strong at first spray, but the way it mellows on my skin is amazing. It is earthy, but not harshly musky IMO. I probably won't buy a full size, but I do love this for a date night out - and my husband loves it more.

So let me start this out with, when I first opened my package, I was immediately disappointed. Upon first smell, I did not find this appealing at all. It was way too strong for me, as I usually tend to gravitate towards lighter, fresher undertones. However, after it had been sprayed and wasn't so pungent, I found that the scent that was left over was very pleasant. I'm not sure that I will order this scent again, but I'm glad that I gave it a try!

Such a disappointment for me. I thought this was the original Panthere during Cartier but was mistaken. I loved the original but I haven't seen it in about 30 years. I was so happy to see it until I received it. I quickly sprayed it on but this was not the earthy scent I loved. It changed on my skin so quickly and was unrecognizable to me. Very unflattering on me. I'm sure it's a gorgeous scent but on someone else. Sorry.
