Starts strong...
Great strong vetiver notes at first. It fades quickly, leaving a powdery scent that wasn't as piquant as the initial notes. If it could stay strong, it would rocket to the top of my favorites. Unfortunately, I can only recommend it as a layering scent.

Cheap
After spraying this fragrance on I knew it was going to be bad. Smelled like a cheap cologne for a gas station.

Hey
This was literally the worst scent I’ve received. It was overpowering and nauseating. I let other people try them on themselves and they hated it. It was way to spicy while trying to be way to soft.

It's a very classic scent... i love it
It smells of a serious man making a statement. It has a lot of presence and got a lot of compliments on it. It does not linger or gets offensive. I think it does not last a very long time..

Like the smell.
Like the smell, and doesn’t give me any sinus problems. But, doesn’t last very long.

I didn’t care for it, smells cheap immediately but after a while it does start to smell alright but that lasts for maybe 15min

I think I'm on par with most on this one. Strong smell in the beginning and settles nicely, but I am disappointed in how long this lasts... I had hoped the other reviews were wrong.

It’s alright. Nothing special. Smells like straight chemicals when you first put it on and then it starts to smell really good, but by that time the smell has already faded to almost nothing. It doesn’t last long.

No. It sounds exotic but it just isn’t good. Does not start off pleasing does not mold into something more and does not last. Truly the worst parts of citrus and spice. I wanted it to be good

Strong musky smell quickly, then slowly turns sweet masculine, clean, fresh. My wife loves it.

This has to be the worst scent that I've gotten. It doesn't have a distinguishing scent at all. I figured it might settle and turn into something that I can wear, but it smells like chemicals. Cheap chemicals. The kind that you wouldn't even want to clean your counter with.

Very nice sophisticated notes. Doesn't really stand out or last long. If your looking for something a little musky and soft that only your Significant other can smell up close this is it.

Fits an older gentleman, scent smells old or like something you would find kept away for a long time...

The smell was a mixture between spilled Vodka, Gin and cat piss. I gave this cologne a shot for two days but had to stop due to becoming nauseous. I am not trying to be mean at all, but this stuff was honestly bad.

I canceled my subscription this month. I love the idea of scentbird, but I refuse to beleive the fragrances aren't diluted. I have found that 30 min. after each application, nothings left. I am sadly, super disappointed. For now on I'll go to the store, sample the scents and then buy a packaged bottle. After 4 months, I been ripped off!

Starts off a burnt plastic, drys down to a mix between hand soap and some form of powder. Maybe I'm just not a Vetiver guy.

This is a beautiful vetiver scent. It starts very smoky and intense, but drys down to a nice clean scent. Love it!!

Light Vetiver scent with subtle Citrus notes. Reminds me of a tropical paradise.
