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.
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!
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 enjoyed this fragrance, but the silage on the EDT is next to nil. I liked it enough that I started looking for the EDP, only to find out that this fragrance has been out of production since 2012. Also, the EDT is available on various sites for as little as $15.
I thought this was going to be a warmer, more sensual fragrance but it smelled very feminine and crisp when I first sprayed it and dried down a little more warm. On me it wasn't a strong scent it was very subtle which I don't like. It's not bad but not what I would call exotic.
Loved this fragrance! If you like fragrances that have deep woody, peppercorn or tobacco notes you'll definitely love this scent. It's deep, rich & sexy. Might be a bit too masculine or exotic for a lot of women but for me it is perfect. If you are someone that likes earthy smells like patchouli but want something that is a little more complex you'll love this scent!
This perfume smells like a rug store to me. It's a little too masculine and spicy. It's not a scent I want on me at all, and I tend to go for heavier, musky vanilla-type scents. It's pretty bad in my opinion.
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...
