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.

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.
No Thank You
As great as this scent sounded, I was extremely disappointed when I received it. To be clear, there was nothing wrong with it. It came on time, wasn't broken or anything... Just smelled kinda gross. In my opinion, it's more of a masculine scent and is extremely strong. From the notes listed I thought it would be a warm fall scent, but it wasn't.
Eh. Not my type.
45 to 54
Liked the scent
Liked the scent, just didn't last
One of my top 5. I had to purchase the bottle after trying this. So good!!!
Two thumbs up
Sexy and exotic just like the name promises. I was not let down. This is a very calm and sensual scent that you are guaranteed to be noticed wearing. Two thumbs up, this was successfully crafted.
35 to 44
Hands down a top 3.
Not my cup of tea
I don’t know about this one but considering it was one I didn’t pick I guess it’s okay. Too floral for my liking
55 to 64
I felt exotic and animal like with this fragrance. My husband kept smelling my body. I loved that.
The sent is light and subtly sweeter. Doesn't last all day type thing, but is a beautiful scent to wear out.
35 to 44
Complex, sweet, herbal, and exotic. I love it on my wife and she’s finally getting away from her go to cologne.
45 to 54
UNSURE about this one
I just sprayed once on my wrist to smell, and I'm not sure if I don't like it or if it needs to grow on me. I'll try it again, and see. Just can't make up my mind about it right now.
25 to 34
This scent is everything! I need the full bottle
Didn't love this one
This one wasn't quite my style. I think it was a great perfume but just not the right scent for me.
35 to 44
Nice smell. This is one I would buy again.
35 to 44
Not bad but smells more masculine in my opinion. I gave it to my hubby and he enjoys it.
25 to 34
Strong but lots of compliments! Definitely have to give it some time to wear off a little so the smell becomes one that others can pick up as you walk past but not that you are smelling the whole time!
45 to 54
This smells very nice. My only compliant is that it does not last long.
55 to 64
Strong Musk scent
Strong Musk Scent.
I placed my first order in Feb for 2 of them was on the 7th I just yesterday received my order for March but never heard back on the first order They took my first payment on 2-7 my second one on 3-7 I sent several emails I tried to find a phone number was told you can not call them That was my only response back after at least 4 emails I got one back sayng you can not contact them by phone I did cancel my account however I am out the first month and by the looks of it they are not going to even respond to me I am very disappointed becauase as for the perfumes they were not bad for the money but they are not a customer service friendly company and by the looks of it they are a fraud Just beware when ordering people I wish I had read reviews better before ordering
Not one I will buy
Subtle but nice not too strong.
Great but not for me
very florally, not a scent for me. However it wears well and lasts a long time. For those who like the type of fragrance it is it will work well
I love, love, love this scent. It makes me feel pretty.
I love the way it seems on me . But I also love how my room smells after Ive put it on.
Not the best
Smells like a grandmothers scent
Love the spicy scent!
I only need a half-spray of this stuff; it's potent! Smells beautiful. My boyfriend hates patchouli, but this is so skillfully blended that he actually really likes it.
It smells like a strong mens cologne..
very cheap smell
I had high hopes for this perfume but it ended up smelling like a cheap drugstore perfume on me. Very sweet and chemical smell
I love this fragrance. It’s spicy and clean and not cloying at all. It’s a little bit mysterious and a little bit fresh. I will be buying the full size!
Not a huge fan. I gave it to my sister and at times I like it on her but did not like it for myself.
I love the fresh yet musky flavor of this scent!
It Smells Like Something Else
Although I cannot for the life of me remember what it is. I can distinctly remember what the small size bottle looked like and that I had bought it from Wal-Mart years ago. This though holds up, after hours the scent has settled down and smells amazing. I absolutely love this one and am kind of glad so many others hate it. I don't like smelling like everyone else.
Expected Exotic. Fell Short.
My face is scrunched. Disappointed.
I neither love nor hate this fragrance. I think the scent pattern is too complex. It neither leans more warm or fruity so I’m just overall very confused by the smell. I can for sure detect the peach and patchouli but that’s about it.
I sprayed this and 2 minutes later my husband asked what that stench was. I will say there is something pleasant hidden under whatever is at the forefront of this fragrance, I was hoping that sharp unpleasant opening note would fade and the nice amber vanilla juice would shine through but unfortunately that never happened. Even worse - it lasts, and lasts, and lasts - I could still smell it on my arm a little after my morning shower. There is a reason you've never heard of this perfume...
Gave Me Life!
I've been a member for some time and have many fragrances I like. I've recently been thinking about cancelling my subscription but decided to wait for the next shipment. It was Exotic Essence, a totally random pick, it totally surprised me!! I LOVE IT! Very exotic yet feminine and sexy, love the peach and mandarin undertones. I've had soooo many people say "what are you wearing, you smell great!: I'm buying this one for my collection. Exotic Essence is my signature for the fall, maybe winter! LOVE this unexpected, surprisingly wonderful find!!
I can't stop smelling myself. Such a different scent. This is the 3rd perfume Ive received and finally love. It's exotic and feminine without being over powering. It lasts forever....a good friend of mine said "what are you wearing? I feel like licking your arm".
Just didnt really like it
I cant put my finger on it.. but i just didnt really like this scent. Kinda smells dirty and cheap.
DAVID YURMAN EXOTIC ESSENCE
Bold femine fragance. It lasts all day and it not overpowering. Deinfintley makes a statement
Didn't love this at all like I hoped I would, it was too musky for some reason. It did last well I think though.
I really like this scent. I like the peach and other notes. The only thing is I feel like it doesn’t last very long
Love This Scent
I just received this scent for this month. I simply fell in love with it just from smelling it. I had to have the actual bottle of this; it's going to be one of my signature scents.
Great scent!!! Warm tones
Love this sent! The amber mixes well with the vaguely sweet undertones!
light floral scent
very floral and sweet. reminds me of a spring bloom
Omg! Love It!
I wore this scent ONE time so far and everyone I came into contact with inquired about this fragrance! I am definitely purchasing a whole bottle to add to my collection! I wish I could put it back into my queue a few more times!
Is there a rule that says we can't order the same perfume repeatedly?
This scent was a total let down for me. The sandalwood overpowers everything else and it smells like you're walking around with a burning stick of incense.
I thought I would love this one a bit more. Still like it a lot and is one of my go-to's, just not at the top. I do like Amber scents but something about this one I can't put my finger on....
Absolutely luxuriously edgy!
If the impression you seek is to appear modern, clean and all around "with it", this is your scent. This fragrance appeals to young, hip gals; who can rock either pearls and/or a leather jacket!! This scent is a treat.
This one was not for me. It smelled like it's more for a man with a little hint of something so that a woman can were it also.
I was disappointed receiving this blend. This is definitely for a male and has a strong masculine tone.
0mg it was awful. It smells like mens cologne. I gave it to my son
Awful.smelled like a bad mens cologne
I enjoyed this scent and others too some people said that when i wore this scent amd left the room the scent would linger.
Not for me
This was way way to strong for me. I usually wear Jessica Mclintok and thought I would try this because I really liked pink one that he has but not this one.
I thought it would be a clean and crisp outdoorsy scent, but it was too strong and musky.
David Yurman Exotic Essence
I feel it is too masculine and strong for my taste.
Sleek and Delicious
This is a real "yes, yes" perfume for me--I feel it would never be an inappropriate scent anywhere. It has that kind of big-name, professional, high-priced careful sweet/sexiness that makes me rely on it, like a Chanel. Usually I prefer niche perfumes and "of-the-moment" scents, but it's good to have a few of the big winners on my dresser too.
This has been my favorite scent so far. Love the smell of it.
From the first spray I was addicted . Exotic and refined in a bottle.
It wasn’t bad but wasn’t good
Love this perfume, such an amazing smell.
I love his fragrances. Delicate Essence, Fresh Essence and Exotic Essence. They last all day and smell wonderful each with distinctive notes for any time of year. I like 'fresh' in the colder months because it's light and fun unlike winter fragrances that are warm and reserved. However, 'exotic' is for the sexy at heart and refined in character. Delicate is oh, so feminine. Get them all!! Add them to your que!!
Smells great but different from anything I've normally wear .. so it's taking a bit to adjust to but I really enjoy it
Never would have thought....
Never would have thought to choose this scent but my friend, who is also a subscriber, had it on and I loved it. Stays with you pretty well. Love the woodsy scent, but not too masculine. I will definitely buy this one.
I HAVE FOUND MY MATE!
It was my first time trying this scent, and i absolutely LOVE it! Just my type of smell, will be buying the big bottle!
I love this scent! Sexy and classy all in one perfume!
winter , strong
I tried this perfume twice wanted to like it more but i really smell more strong smell i wanted more vanilla /amber smell i did not get it. But it different more of a strong amber smell then anything good for winter. but not my fav.
Not for me
Strong scent. Couldn't tell what I was smelling & didn't want to find out. Will be given to mother or in-law. As stated- could be for someone else, just not me.
Mostly had a patchouli and soft amber scent to it. Hard to detect any of the other notes in it. It seems to last until about mid afternoon...so about 4-5 hours life.
Sensual and Flirty
I love this fragrance and how it works with my natural body chemistry. The scent is very intoxicating and great for date night!!!!
It is a nice scent - it lasts a long time.
I love it
It’s a very sexy smell
Good one to add to your rotation if you like warm, spicy scents. It's not too overpowering, I actually found that by the end of the day it wore off considerably. Still a good choice though!
I gave this a negative review at first, but after trying it many times, it grew on me. I thought it had too much of a strong spicy scent, but I grew to like it. It has awesome staying power and appealed to my boyfriend immediately. I've actually run out and considered repurchasing. If you do try it, I would recommend giving it some time before making a decision.
If your trying to hide something this is the perfect scent for you. It was very strong. I couldn't tell you what I was smelling. it was a bit over the top for me. I didn't even attempt to wear it. I was disappointed.
Hated this fragrance way too overwhelming!!!! Waste of my subscription for this month. Don't even feel like I can pass it on to someone else.
I did NOT like this at all! I tried it several days to see if it would grow on me....it didn't. Definite thumbs down!
This is SO ME! Euphoria is my scent but this is a wonderful addition!
I'd rather not wear perfume than wear this. Gave it three days, NOT for me. Too Sweet.
Warm, spicy, very earthy. It's very strong but so intoxicating, just want to keep smelling it. But for my taste it was a bit to earthy and strong. It's a beautiful scent just to much for me.
Loved this. Was concerned when I smelled it out of the bottle but one it’s got on my skin it was amazing!! I love it. My boyfriend loved it too. Looking forward to next month. Very sweet smelling!
Delicious scent, especially for the fall/winter. I would describe this as a more mature fragrance with long lasting staying power.
I love the smell of amber and spice in this scent. It goes on a bit strong but mellows put quickly and last all day! This will be part of my favorite scents rotation for sure!
Didn't really like. Spicy smell more for mature woman.
Very unique scent. Not very floral, more spicy. I wouldn't say it is an every day scent but maybe good for date night.
I love it!
LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!! It’s musky and warm, it’s very sensual. I like scents that make you feel like your partner needs to get close and take it all in, and this does that. It’s not overpowering but smells exotic and spicy. It feels like a warm fall serrated that wraps me up in soft, sensual scents of wood and musk... LOVE it so much I bought a full sized!
REAAAALLY loving this scent! Very classy & sophisticated! Love that it also has great staying power, stayed on all night without being over bearing! Would order this one again!
This is STRONG. I do one spritz on my wrist and I am good. If you smell it in the bottle it smells very unpleasant, but it opens up to be a pretty lovely perfume. It is pretty sweet, I do not get much spice from this. Smells like Red Door from Elizabeth Arden. Lasts fur a really long time on me.
I LOVE THIS FRANGRANCE!!!!! TOP OF THE LINE
