a calm sweet
I like this for when I don't want my scent to be super strong and i want a mild sweetness. It is light and nutty and I love it.

So good
This was soooo good. Very soft and warm. Not overly musky at all. Lasted a solid 6+ hours. Lingered a bit, but softened up.

I liked this a lot more than I thought I would. It’s a soft almond scent and not musky at all.

Love this scent. Reminds me of almond cookies but also smells a bit like baby powder. Sounds weird but the combo us wonderful.

Very artificial scent
I am always on the lookout for a nice almond scent, but I was disappointed in this. To me this scent was very artificial and unpleasant.

Barely smell it
It was like a bottle of water with a hint of cherry almond essence...I could barely smell it and it had no staying power.

I love almond scents. This is beautiful. I smell a light almond and it's very pretty, but it doesn't last long at all.

Sweet and kind of “ bakery” smell
Not bad but not quite what I expected. Hi definitely smell the almond but this fragrance is a bit sweet, it reminds me of almond cookies, or maybe a room almond spray. Not terrible so I’ll wear it for every day but I wouldn’t buy a bottle or this. A bit too sweet for my taste.

Fine
Not as good as I expected. I can smell the cherry but it's soapy and really light. There's a bit of salt and almond but the tonka doesn't show up until the very dry down.

Not my favorite
I thought this would be a sure winner since I love the fragrance of Almonds and Cherries. However, it did not remind me of those 2 smells to me when I put it on my skin. I will try a few more times and see what might happen.

Sweet but strong
The scent is heavenly, very sweet and warm. It’s a bit too heavy for me. It’s best once it’s had an hour or so to evaporate.

Lovely near-gourmand scent!
This scent--to me--is exactly as it's described here. The almond is prominent, but not overpowering. The musk is definitely the least prominent (which is good for me, I'm not a huge fan of musk). The cherries pop through in the first few moments as the scent settles down. The tonka bean helps keep the almond creamy, and lets the scent lean more gourmand. My only criticism is the sillage; I find myself having to reapply the scent another two or three times throughout an entire day (morning to night).

smells delicious
I like it! It's a very soft smell that smells mostly like almond with a very faint hint of cherry. I went to a spin class and sweated like crazy, but could still smell it on my shirt, so I think it lasts decently long :)

Soft scent
Almond stands out most for me and then a hint of cherry. Really wonderful scent! It's soft with a touch of cozy. Love the scent, but wish it lasted longer.

Not what i was hoping for!
I was pretty disappointed! I was hoping for an almond cherry smell. This has a hint of cherry with some powdery type of smell that left a bad after smell, if any of that makes sense. Feel like it is quite mature, not for me. It is not so horrible where i need to wash it off right way though, so that's good!

Luxurious Almond - Warm and Cozy
We use Yardley Oatmeal and Almond soap at our house. I just love the way it smells. And this perfume smells like a step above that. The scent is luxurious and velvety with a hint of tart cherry and a mature-ness that Yardley hand soap just doesn't match. Not overly feminine or masculine, to me this would be a delectable scent for fall or winter. It has a warmth to it that makes me want to cuddle up with a book on the couch with a warm cup of cocoa. And you can expect a decent wear time - nothing extensive to write home about - probably about 4-ish hours until you'd need to reapply. I definitely look forward to wearing it again.

Not Impressed
I did not like the scent of this product. I expected it to smell kind of like vanilla and almond, but I didn't get either of those in this. Didn't smell like almonds at all. It smelled cheap and unpleasant to me.

Yummy
I love the smell of almond almost as much as vanilla and I was hoping for something marizpan-y with this, but it's not as sweet smellng as you might expect. It's kind of a more grown up gourmand; it's lovely and soft, and delivcious without being overpowering. I do wish it was a little stronger as it doesn't seem to last all day on me but I really like it.

Not for me
I was so excited to try this based on the note composition. I was extremely disappointed. This smells like a cheap cherry scented car air freshener. Not something that I want to smell like for 2 hours, which is about how long this stayed on.

Sweet but strong
The sweet almond smell of this perfume is spot on. Unfortunately, I don't really care for extremely strong perfumes that stay that strong, and Caswell-Massey is every bit of that. I tend to spritz my perfumes in the air and walk through it to get a little less scent and better dispersal, but this perfume smells like I used it as a body spray no matter how little actually gets on me. If you're looking for a perfume that essentially smells the same hours later (in notes and in intensity), this will be a great fit for you. If you prefer something that goes on light and fades to barely there, stay far away.

Delicate yumminess
This reminds me of something from my childhood. It has no alcohol smell at all, super pure, like a bit of cherry and almond. Really nice, creamy, and simple. Not strong, it’s a great day scent. Love it.

Disappointed
I wanted to love this scent, everything listed about its notes I thought would give an amazing fragrance. This scent is so “weak” that I couldn’t hardly notice it on my skin immediately after using it. Was nothing like I had hoped for. Maybe a preteen this would be ideal for...I’m so bummed it didn’t meet my expectations.

Yummy!
I have been a member for well over a year and this has been my favorite pick! It is deep and luxurious, I find myself hoarding each spray. The scent lasts for hours and is so pleasant I feel myself wanting to recreate the "gain commercial" sniff, sniff hooray!!! It's Amaretto with vanilla and I will be on the hunt for a full bottle!

Wonderful Scent
I love this scent. I am very particular about my perfume and this is heaven. I love it! I find myself putting it on all the time; right after a shower, when I get up and before I go to bed. I smells so much like almonds and cream. I highly recommend it.

Delicious smell-poor performer
Nutty and delicious gourmand fragrance. I get a juicy pineapple at first spray with the almond note quickly kicking in. I don’t get cherry at all in this one. I get the vanilla from Tonka in dry down and then the fragrance is gone-poof! Low Sillage and projection is very close to the skin.Longevity is less than hour on my skin, a little more on clothes. This is an EDT which I didn’t notice when I ordered (totally my fault). Eau de toilette-not as concentrated as EDP-eau de Parfum
