I had just learned about Scentbird and sign up after reviewing the list of fragrance selections being offered. This Oxford Bleu was my first selection to sample. At first spray, I was not impressed, but after a bit of dry down, it showed more complexity and I was hopeful, then it became a bit powdery. I do not like powdery fragrances, yet I tried to stay open-minded as this one still teetered on the edge of like/dislike. I tried it a second time, waiting for the dry down of the top notes, passed thru the powdery middle, and finally found that what stood out most, was a definite pineapple scent. Now, pineapple should be appealing, right? Maybe if it was actual pineapple one was smelling but, in this fragrance, it was just a sour and tart smell, not something I would want to wear around others. I will probably give it to my neighbor, to whom I pass all of my cast-offs. She has different "scentsabilities"!
