This is an interesting scent. After spraying, it's a bit acrid and heavy with a synthetic citrus type smell up front. By the time it dries, it's a soft and spicy peach/woods/vanilla scent. It's quite pleasant once you get past the initial blast. Three stars because it has absolutely no longevity. Within 15 minutes, I can't smell it at all. Neither can my husband. Kind of a bummer...

I looove this! I will be getting another bottle. It starts out wood/forest like and then it softens to almost a light fruit. Can be worn during the day or evening because it is so unique!

Got mine today. At first scent, I think it's a little masculine and overpowering. It would be a good scent for evening, with key notes if amber and spice. Not my cup of tea, though.

I will cut right to it and say that this perfume is wonderful for anyone that loves warm, sensual scents! I personally do and I'm in love with this. The key note to me is amber, followed by a mandarin orange and slight vanilla scent. It isn't quite mandarin orange but I have no other way to describe the slight fruity under note! As I said you will not be disappointed if you love warm, sensual scents. Don't let what I said about he mandarin orange scent steer you away.

Definitely strong and different. Smells a little more "mature" but once it dies down a bit it smells so super fantastic! So hard to describe honestly. Just extremely different than I'm used to. But when I smell it on my sweater days later I can't stop sniffing it. I would get the sample again but def not an entire bottle.

David Turman Exotic Essence smelled horrible at first spray, but within 30 seconds it changed into a perfume I enjoy. Has a amber scent, with a light floral--Didn't give me a migraine. I'd recommend this scent for fall/winter..thats what I bought it for. Longevity from 1-10 is around a 7..I can still smell it 4 hours after 1st sprays. Happy with my choice!

This perfume has a very pleasant smell. I was worried when I read that it had a mature smell. I would consider it more sofisdicated and subtle on my skin. It has a strong note of patchouli, which is one reason I selected it. The scent itself fades, but still leaves a light trace behind. Overall, I'm very pleased with this selection!

I am kind of on the fence with this scent. I love the musk, woodsy, sandalwood scents but this one I think has to much of the vanilla in it for me. It doesn't seem to last very long. However, the hint of scent that does stick around seems to be more of a sandalwood and that I like. I am going to buy a full size bottle of this and wear it during the day. It isn't going to be one that I will save for big occasions though.

My favorite oriental scent, right now. It's deep, rich, and alluring with excellent sillage and longevity. Still on my clothes the next day. I would rank this one up there with the likes of La Vie Est Belle and Jimmy Choo Jimmy Choo EDP. If you prefer light, airy fruity florals, which I love too, you might give this a try. It's not typical, at all. Great for cooler days, evenings, and colder seasons.

I am surprised to say this, but I didn't like this scent. Don't misunderstand me, It didn't make want to convulse on the floor, clean my nose out with bleach, and burn the product in case it has infected me with it's scent virus. I love mature scents, but this just felt unbalanced. It has all the parts to make a great spicy and seductive smell but it just didn't pan out.

This smell is very strong! It starts off smelling like old lady perfume but after it dries down it has more of a fruity and musky scent. When I first sprayed it, I was sad because I didn't like the "older" feeling the scent had. After about 10 minutes I grew to like the scent but it still has a mature smell more appropriate for someone in their 40s; I don't know if I would wear this every day. This will be my back up for days I want something a little different.
