2.9 out of 5
BEST USED IN SMALL QUANTITIES!!! It's very strong, but so beautiful when you get the right amount. it's got a slight Christmas-y quality to it, but smells a little different every time you catch a waft of it. Lots of different aspects to it but somehow they all work well together!
Just love these
Good but faint
It smelled good and true to description, but faded quick. Still I liked the smell
didn't like smell
I DIDNT like this scent. It was a very strong and not good scent. Hated it
Not gonna wear it.
The notes in this scent were not what I was expecting, it smelled very old fashioned and honestly just not good. I won’t be wearing it.
I did not like this at all. Not my preference.
Great deep woody fragrance. Starts out strong but as it sets it becomes almost creamy . Found myself sniffing my wrist all day. Would recommend.
one of the best yet. thank you
I've never not liked something so much!
No disrespect to people who liked this scent, but to me it smells like the spirit of an old lady ghost. What the heck???
Very strange smell almost like mushrooms and dirt I don’t recommend
Interesting mix of notes grabbed my attention; I wondered if this would turn out to be a mundane tropical floral but it is just gorgeous! The cool leathery note of the grey amber contraposes the other soft, warm notes, lending a very unisex tone to the fragrance. I've worn this a few times already and it is also going on my full-size to-buy list!
Not a fan
Didn't like the smell
not my preference
my boyfriend loves it c:
its airy and perfect!!
Has the preferred smell I love.
Not for me
I was not a fan of this scent! I immediately got a headache after smelling this.
Smelled to mature
Did not ask for this
I hate this scent.
stock very bad
smell like something a man would wear
The worst ever￼
Costume National Intense
I've seen were this is listed as a woman fragrance, but I like the dense smokiness of the dry down. It's unisex to a male sent to my nose, I love it!
Got on a whim. Smells good not great.
Don’t like n didn’t pick
I didn’t pick this n then I didn’t like it at first but it wore on me n I get a lot of compliments.
I didn’t like this at all and I feel like it was a waste of my money
pretty good perfume in woody tones for women
I love it ! smells different yet classy ..would wear it on a sports or activity kinda date. I just hope, the stay was much longer
It wasn't a good smell to me and seemed more like a male cologne
first I didn't order this but got charged anyway. it's terrible it smells very musky & manly. to me it had an inky smell & I immediately thought tattoo parlor. I didn't even give it away just through it on the trash after opening it.
Good smell not for wearing
It’s more like a room freshener.
I cannot finger on it but it just wasn't for me it smelled like one of those nasty incense that you light.
It was a bit to strong but over all people still liked the smell
AWESOME , NO COMPLAINTS
the scent is pleasant, and long lasting. received a lot of compliments.
Didn't lime the snell
Didn't like it
Not a fan
Smelt like something your grandma would have kept in her bathroom in the 80s
This perfume smells like the sweat and powder and mud. Definitely would not recommend.
Scent is to deep
Reminds me of my moms old Jean Nate too much to give an accurate opinion. Doesn’t smell very modern but maybe that’s just my association
Not in my scent radar
This perfume reminded me of an old lady
I did not ask for this scent in my que so I was very disappointed when I received it and what I had originally picked dissappeared I was mostly taken back by the fact that you know what I prefer you
this scent was offensive and I did not choose it nor is it any of my Preferences!!!! very upset about September
Not my cup of tea
Sent automatically wish I could return
It didnt smell good
The scent was spicy with a subtle sweet undertone. It reminded of a men’s Cologne however.... not my style lol
Not my type of perfume. I like sweet smells and this one was not. Too strong
This was a brilliant, unisex fragrance, that makes you take a second whiff. No matter, what sex is wearing this breeze of Love.
Simply said I love it
Just love every bottle I've received
I didn’t really like it.
Gross, but my kid liked it.
Not a fan
Not for me. Definitely not my cup of tea...
I am not a man
I want to smell like a woman so this was not it!
did not order that fragrance
When I first sprayed it on I thought it was strong and could possibly really enjoy it. As the day went on it smelled more musky on me. It lasted long but towards the end of the day I felt like I smell like a man that had worked hard all day. I gave it to a guy friend of mine and he loves it! Just not for me 😕
I can’t even describe this smell as other than deep rich strong and addictive! Earthy musky yet a hint of sweet.. exactly how I love my scents! MY FAVORITE SO FAR. It’s bold so if you like flowery soft smells this isn’t for you.
I didn’t pick this fragrances Scentbird picked it for me and gave me a bad headache instantly
Smell is so bad . Not right that I had to pay for this one when I didn’t even pick this one to add in my que. Scentbird just decided to pick this one and add it into my que . Awful awful awful awful for Scentbird to do that to me and I am paying for this. I didn’t even have to spray the fragrance on as soon as I took it out of the case and The scent is so terribly pungent I instantly got a headache and couldn’t get the smell from my olfactory. I immediately when to my coffee beans to take the scent away just to keep me from vomiting and that is how bad scent is
so subtle and amazing smelling
Every one loved the smell in how I Representatived it
None of my perfumes stay with me for more than 10 minutes after I use it
None of the perfumes that I have received ever stays on long enough to get a compliment
Not for me
Good for others, just not me
it was and I am my preference but okay smell like a guy though
it was okay for me not my best fragrance
It was strong and it smelled.like.a.mans.calogn
My son liked it for himself . It smell better on then coming from the vile and other people certainly noticed it
Didnt like it..not for me
Did not like. Not a choice i would go for.
Smell like a guy
It smells disgusting.
I would like to get Dolce & Gabbana Chanel I haven't got any of that yet
Love scentbird y'all are the best
Just not his kind of cologne
If I could give it a half star, I would. My husband did not like it at all.
Definitely not my preference and makes me think of a toilet cleaner. It’s personal of course!
This one smells like a man's cologne. Almost like the men's 'Obsession'. It definatly did not blend with my body.
This is such a good fragrance
Nothing close to what i prefer from a scent. I'll never use it.
Not what I wanted
I didn’t ask y’all for this trash!!! This is the reason I canceled my services .
The smell is different I like it much I will by a big bottle
Loved. The scents of my favs
Don’t recommend this earthy scent
Not for me.
Scent was very over powering.
I was automatically sent this fragrance and what a disappointment! I read somewhere that it's supposed to be unisex but neither my husband or I will wear it. The scent is intense, woodsy, musky (in a bad way) and for lack of a better word...old. After a few minutes on it does cross over to a more androgenous scent that could be either your grandma's worst perfume, or your grandpa's worst cologne, I'm not sure exactly which.
don't do it
This is more of a cologne to me and smelled like old people mixed with robitussin cough syrup. It was also super strong. Not a fan at all. My fiance didn't like it either so it's useless lol. I just wouldn't do it if I were you.
I don't know what happened...
I thought I was good to go from the description but after one spray, I felt like a 14-year-old boy who just started replacing a shower with cologne.
Did not like
Smell was so strong made my head and stomach hurt couldn’t
A tad too musky
At first the smell was pretty nice but after a while it was too strong and musky of a smell
Didn’t even want this.
Didn’t ask for this scent or another scent I got but this one was gross as ever. Very masculine, gave me and my co workers a headache. Way too strong, so I couldn’t eat. Let alone. NOT. ASKED. FOR. Throwing it away, and very displeased. Doesn’t go with any of my previous scents
This was masculine.
What can I say? I was disappointed. This was a bad month for ScentBird. 2 perfumes not good. I get 3. This smells like it should be a man's option. I wonder if they got it wrong and put it in the women's?
Thumbs down 5x
Smells like an old man
least fav so far
did not smell good
Worst perfume ever
It smells disgusting
Not my jam
it smells like a insent store mixed everything together n called it a scent.
I’m so disappointed with this scent it completely ruined my mood for the evening. I wanted to get back in the shower and wash it off. Wish I can send it back
Way too overpowering! Was not what I was hoping for. Didn’t smell like the description. Thought it would be a sexy date night scent but instead it smelt the opposite.
intense spicy smell but too strong
something about this is too strong or harsh
Hibiscus Tea + Amber
A weird combination that shouldn't work. Smells like the steam from hibiscus tea mixed with a nice amber base. Color me impressed.
Smells like an old lady
I was really excited for this scent because the notes all hit my favorites. Really disappointed when it smelled so dated.
This almost smells good. it reminds me of when I used to spray down with the Avon skin so soft mosquito spray and then have to spray Deet on top. it mellows out after you put it on but it reminds me also of my grannies avon perfumes in the crazy bottles that all ended up smelling the same. Just old ppl and bug spray. two stars for the weird memories.
Environment impacting. Atmosphere changing.
I love this scent and it works with me very well!
I love the scent
Unisex scent & I enjoyed it more that I thought! Exceeded my expectations in terms of smell but it wasn’t as long lasting as I wanted it to be...
Strong but lovely
If you like woodsy, powerful scents, this is for you! I like it alot, but I can see myself only wearing it during colder months; it's a very warm scent. I ordered it in my queue because I fell in love with another CoSTUME NATIONAL (called So Nude) but this one isn't as gorgeous.
Was I surprised to see this was recommended for me￼, a man. I liked it a lot, not strong enough nor did it last long.
Surprised- very nice
Wasn’t sure because it wasn’t something I picked. This time The Bird got it right on the money!
I like it
I am a fan of this house so far. I definitely like this one, but not as much as Soul, for sure. It smelled a little bit like cola to me, but my significant others disagreed
The Scent gave me a headache. Not for me. I have gone back and retaken the scent quiz. I thought the scents I checked were ones I liked, but the scents weren't for me. So I have checked scents and notes that are citrus and ocean scents that I think I might enjoy more.
Nice scent, too short
I like the scent but it just didn't last.
Would put this on my top 3 colognes I’ve tried. Long lasting. Worth buying
Loved the scent but found it to be very much for Winter
If there was ever a scent that matches its description, it's this. It smells like a costume, but not in a plastic way. more like the dressing room of a theater... makeup, lights, costumes. Its definitely a unique scent that I don't regret receiving but I wouldn't add it to my que again. unfortunately it didn't fit my chemistry gave it to a friend and it smells great on her.
I’d want my man to wear this💯 it smells bomb
White diamonds or cool water ?
a very much cool water scent or Elizabeth Taylor diamonds . Very mesmerizing unisex smell with invigorating fragrance like old spice body wash . Lasts long too about 5/6 hr average on my skin !
Not a favorite
I didn't really like this fragrance and it did not last long enough....
This had an opening much like EL Cinnabar. But after 2 hours, it was gone, barely a skin scent.
Costume National Intense
I do not love it.
I love this fragrance, it is definitely now one of my favorites. It has a wonderful cottage witch fragrance to it. Very layered but blended spectacularly. I tend towards gourmand fragrances and usually shy away from florals but this was a great surprise. It is the perfect mix of forest woods, sweet warmth, with a fresh floral tea... just magical.
This smelled great but only lasted about 2 hours. Waste of money
It’s unusual and everyone comments.

Costume National Scent Intense leans masculine to my nose, but that never bothers me! Sometimes I'm looking for something a bit richer and edgy. Scent Intense fits the bill. The tea and hibiscus note are lovely, but it's the rich amber and sandalwood that really draw me in. Perfect sillage and it wears well throughout the day. Highly recommended if you love a good amber perfume!
Smells of real ambergris - smells lovely, fresh and expensive! Tres Moderne!
smelled more like a man's cologne
A truly unisex fragrance. It is warm wood, and while people mention fall - I think it's a good evening fragrance anytime.
45 to 54
It surprised me
At first sniff, I absolutely hated it. Once I put it on, I was in love with this scent! Give it a chance to mix with your chemistry before you put it aside.
55 to 64
Not for me
I was told i smelled like an "old woman" which at 57, is not something you want to hear. I received more compliments wearing men's cologne from Dollar Shave club!!! That sealed it for me
Warm and woody
I fall on love with this parfume! In reviews it was said that this parfum is more masculine than femenine, but its really womens parfume. Warm woody smell. Good for everyday use. I think its more for a cold weather, like autumn, winter and early spring . I will buy a full size bottle defenitly . ❤️❤️❤️
This scent is perfect for both men and women in my opinion. very seductive and deep on a woman, but very classic and formal on a man. The amber and sandalwood are dominant in this fragrance, and while I don't distinctly smell any floral notes I do get a hint of sweetness in the dry down. Longevity is phenomenal, about 8 hours on my skin and silage can be beastly so use a light hand.
45 to 54
Amazing fragrance! I love the Jasmine and hibiscus. You can smell both clearly. It projects well and lasts a long time. Refreshing and great all year round but definitely best for warmer months! Not too sweet! Works well for men.
decent scent, nothing to get excited about though
Well, I just realized this is made for women! How was this even in an option for me lol? That is why I didn't like it, it is extremely floral and powdery and definitely smells feminine....cool. wellz I'll just give it to my girl I guess
Hardly any smell
The smell of this was lovely but you could only smell it if you had your nose right near the pressure point I applied it to. I don’t want to overpower a room but I do want people to be able to smell my perfume if they are near.

Soft, Creamy, Wood Scent
Those that like scents traditionally labeled "for men" or "masculine" may find that this particular scent lacks the oomph - the assertive woodiness - that they're used to. It also has very detectable floral notes, which some may associate with feminine fragrances. But, in my opinion, this is definitely a unisex scent. I wouldn't describe this scent as sweet, it is more like an "off-dry" scent. So, the presence of amber and the fruity notes give you a modicum of sweetness, but nothing that is too much. This scent is definitely smooth and polished in its presentation. The woods are dominant, but the florals are present - almost like you would encounter them walking through a garden. It's clean, warm and powdery . . . . Yes, that's an odd combination. You probably don't have anything exactly like this in your wardrobe. It's well-blended and very easy to wear. I would say that this is an office safe scent with a few curveballs to keep things interesting.
