3.7 out of 5
Smells like a sweet, syrupy nail polish remover. I had my friends smell this and no one liked it.
I love this scent! The perfect balance for date night or girls night out!
Sexy and mysterious
I didn't care for this but my husband likes it.
When will you bring angel back ?
The scent was light and uplifting.
Didn’t like it at all
I wanted to love it because of the name but it was not a good smell
It’s just the right amount of musk I like
to earthy for me
If youre into strong scents you'll like this one.
Very over powering. Mature and intense. Could be good for once in a while or special occasions.
It smells elegant and soft
like the smell. it's not too much
Sharp strong scent
It wasn’t to my taste. Didn’t really smell good to me.
I love the powerful sent! Not to strong but def makes a statement!!! I love this stuff!!! ❤️
Husband loved I not so much but!
This was super strong and I was not instantly in love with it however I’m going to give it a few chances as I had a migraine the day my perfumes arrived. My husband and children were instant fans though and complimented me repeatedly throughout the day and night so it was a long lasting performer.
I love it this is the kind of scent I like to wear
Well I love it so much that I immediately purchased it. Great for fall scent
old person smell
you’re gonna smell like an old person when you wear this, it’s alright, not too bad, but if that’s not your thing then you won’t like this.
This perfume was actually the best one I've tried since I started! Sweet undertones.
Not for me
Everything was fine ! It’s just not chemistry mix.
Not for me
The scent was strong but different, but just not for me.
I like the smell for a sometime where. It’s a clean smell with a very natural undertone. Feel it can definitely work as a unisex smell.
This fragrance has long lasting scent.
David Yurman Exotic Essence - exceptional! Love it!
David Yurman Exotic Essence, is exceptional! Love it!
I didn't pay attention to the scents and it was a little stronger than I expected.
The Scent hit my nose and I loved it!!!
I got plenty of compliments..Love the scent!!
Love how it's both sweet and spicy. Just the right strength and lasts pretty well
Had to use it for a while
.when i initially smelled it it didnt smell feminine .... but when i put it on my skin it was amazinggg
This is very amber-y. Slightest bit floral but I love it. Not exactly what I'd normally wear but its different and I like it!
I WAS VERY HAPPY WITH IT
Strong and The fragrance intensifies!
This fragrance smells absolutely amazing! It is a little strong at first spray, but as the morning goes on, it intensifies and becomes a more sexier fragrance. This is truly the perfect date night fragrance!
i liked it
It was kinda stinky
It’s smelled like a nursing home
Strong but not overbearing. Very sexy scent
It was okay
Nice for evenings but maybe not everyday
Smells like an old lady, probably won’t use it
Not my style
Old smelling and too strong for me
I didn’t like for me. I gave it to someone I work with and they loved it.
This scent is very nice but doesn’t last long on me.
I love te spice sents it just likes to was told it would be
It smelled like the perfect combo of savory and sweet💖
This is definitely not for me. I feel like the scent is borderline obnoxious.
Love DAVID Yurman.
Name sold me, Scent told me
Heavier than anticipated, passed it along to my teenage son.
This one blew me away, and definitely not in a good way. It is EXTREMELY strong, and quite old lady/old man-ish. Very masculine scent, and I can see the exoticness that others have mentioned but the moment I smelled it on my skin, I ran to the sink and washed it off. Completely not what I was hoping for and definitely nothing I'd ever wear again. Can't get the smell out of my nose...
Very Nice Fragrace
Was very surprised how much I loved this one! Kind of exotic without being old-lady! Would buy this one.
I sprayed it and fell in love with it!!! Exactly the kind of scent I prefer
It was not for me. I like soft smelling perfumes.
It’s a nice scent.
I like it. It was in line with dolce & Gabbana the one. And Jennifer Aniston Original perfume. Scents of Summer.
Smelled like it was old and spoiled... it was horrible.
Did not smell like any perfume but a chemical. The scent was long gone....
Very sexy smell
I loved this scent and people told me I smelled amazing, but I feel like it didn’t last all day and I like my scents a little stronger.
A Surprising Twist
So this fragrance has all the notes I normally gravitate to (amber, sandalwood, vanilla, patchouli). Once I tried it I was completely surprised. I was expecting it to smell similar to a lot of my other go to fragrances but not at all. The patchouli in this one definitely is the star of the show. A bit strong, at least with the first spritz, but it mellows out soon after. I usually prefer patchouli as a supporting actress but it worked out great for this fragrance!
It’s ok not what I expected
Awesome! Just the right amount of spice and sweet! I love it!
Love this one!
It really does smell exotic! I love scents that have a sultry, spicy smell and this one fits the bill
The smell is very classy and spicy!! Absolutely love it!!
Not for me
Smell was very strong which is good for value, but it smelled like it would appeal to senior ladies
Too Heavy For Me
Smells great but it’s not a good fit for me.
smells like an old lady fragrance
I would not recommend this fragrance
Has a unique smell!
It’s so exciting to receive these perfumes. It’s the highlight of my month! This was very sultry stayed with me a long time and I absolutely love it!
Rustic and Earthy
Has an expensive smell
Not for me
It was too pungent for me, didn't seem mesh with my chemistry and didn't last either which was fine because it gave me a slight headache.
I love a masculine scent but still feminine. Just wish it would last longer.
Exoticly Yurman D.
This is a most amazing personal fragrance scent to Me! It is all I expected with the fragrance notes I chose! I'm searching for a fragrance with the essence of Christian Lacroix ABSYNTHE It is my Life, My Soul, My Living, My Death, My Rebirth, My Everlast(ing) My ETERNITY
Didn’t make me feel pretty
Love this but wish I would last longer.
It is something I would buy.
Not a fan
This smells very old and overpowering
Not to strong but strong enough.
Love the smell but not on me...way to strong.
It wasn’t special, didn’t last long !
The scent was just ordinary. I think the designer was not involved in the process. Great jewelry! Stick to jewelry!
absolutely love this scent. I get so many compliments when I wear it. definitely my favorite by far
Love this so much!
Definitely a new favorite of mine! Intoxicating & a must try for anyone who loves spicy & woodsy fragrances.

David Yurman Exotic Essence
I love it! I love the patchouli notes and the woodsy scent! You can smell the hint of peach and sandalwood! I love the choice I made on my first purchase! I would definitely get this again! I made the perfect choice.
This is my most favorite ones I like these type of scents
Smells like the beach and suntan lotion!
This is such an amazing fragrance! I think it’s unisex. I love smelling it on my boyfriend, but I also love to wear it. This is definitely my new favorite!
Not so intense
I wear it to work
This was just entirely too strong of a fragrance and it was just too oriental
25 to 34
Warm and lovely
I love the warmth of this scent. It is a little more masculine but I like that it is not overly "perfumed" in the sharp chemical sense. Seems to last all day but is not overwhelming.
Just Right for Me
Love this scent. Great for work & social outings.
This does not smell good at all.
This fragrance it not pleasant at all I will never use this..
Love it. Goes with my body chemistry.
Didn’t last at all.
This is a sensual fragrance, not overpowering. It's perfect for outings or a boost of confidence.
I prefer sexier, spicy or woodsy smells. This one was all of that with a distinct peach overlay. I could definitely smell the peach which I thought I’d hate, but I got so many compliments.
Love this, it smell wonderful on me. Received lots of compliments.
Not a fan of the scent
Fabulous opulent mysterious
My new favorite
This sexy scent is the perfect day time perfume for me. I am a mix of Brazilian and danish so I find myself trying to find balance in life so often between the parts of myself that are so different. Like my love for art and appreciation for science. I love sexier scents but I have been looking for more everyday scents that aren’t too strong or too boring. This one is perfect for me
Not exotic to me at all... doesn't smell that great.
Almost gone, need more much sooner.
35 to 44
Too Masculine for me
This scent was far too strong and masculine for me. I like a spicy scent but this was just way too much. I felt like I smelled like an old man.
Sexy as hell
25 to 34
LOVE this scent!!
At first when I sprayed it I didn’t think I was going to like it. After I put it on and wore it for a few... I fell in love!! I also like to mix it with Carolina’s good girl- such a pretty mix.Wish it lasted a little longer but I feel that way with almost every scent nowadays!
35 to 44
I was excited when this fragrance arrived as the notes are right up my alley. But after I put it on for the first time I was disappointed. There was nothing wrong with the fragrance, it just doesn’t last. I literally can’t smell it after 1 hour.I’m a fan of woody fragrances and this is a nice, mellow woody scent. It has a nice creaminess to it from the vanilla and sandalwood. If you are looking for a strong, rich, complex fragrance, this is not it.
Nice winter scent. It lasts all day.
