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.

Gah--AWFUL scent!
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...

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!

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

Doesn’t last
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.

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.
