One of my favorites!
When I first put it on, it smells powdery, but once it melds with my own natural scent, it smells amazing! It's the only one that my boyfriend has commented on about how good it smells on me. Guess I need to buy a big bottle of it. LOL

Like it, don’t love it
I’ve been hating my monthly picks lately,but surprisingly kinda like this. It’s more perfumey than my normal scents(I usually wear Nitro Noir or Montale Chocolate Greedy). I actually like this layered over the Nitro Noir from Kieran NYC, to give it a more grown-up, sexy nighttime vibe

Powdery
This scent is hard to describe, it's a very powdery scent and it's hard to pick up the rum and coconut. I can't smell the coconut at all so it's probably just the rum I'm smelling. It's an OK scent but not for me.

I like it but very powdery
This is a nice scent BUT I was expecting something a little more spicy and not as powdery. Yes, it does smell primarily of a very floral baby powder but I like it just fine. If you are into flowery, powdery scents, then this is the one for you. I like how it smells very clean as well but all I really smell is the strong baby powder smell.

Underrated
I just got this perfume as my newest subscription and I think it's fairly underrated here. It's definitely something unique! On me, the opening is baby powdery and warmly orange blossom-y which fades fairly quickly into a dark, warm, very spicy and almost incence-y fragrance. I would probably describe this in an original YSL Opium type category. It fades out into sweet yet still spicy woods-y notes, almost cedar like and very crisp. Mysterious and alluring. A good night time, winter scent.

I LOVE Etat Libre d Orange but not so much this scent. For reference, my favs are Fat Electrician and Remarkable People... both of which are more woodsy, spicy and etc. This is a bit too sweet and floral for me. Beautiful for the more girlie, but not for me.

Baby Powder - disappointment
I guess i should have read the reviews first. The description sounded inviting as well did the way the product is described to smell. I tried it on and all anyone could smell was overpowering baby powder. Not sure how the name and ingredients end up smelling like that, but would not suggest wasting money on this fragrance. Just buy some baby powder....

Too Baby-Powdery.
This may be the third and last fragrance I've tried by this label. Each one has been a disappointment. There is nothing 'lustful' about this fragrance. Starts off offensively powdery and dries down to a common knock-off perfume. I was hoping for warm and complex and got Love's Babysoft's annoying cousin.

Not happy
I sighed up with sentbird through a friend.. Still have not received my first sent or the free one it was supposed to come with. Nor did o receive the little case. I have received second month that I paid for, but was not the sent that I put for. They have charged me 3 time and I’m just tired. I was trying to give them time to correct it. I don’t think they will. Trying to cancel subscription 😪

if you'll get hold of customer service they'll take care of any problems you have this really is a good website I had a little bit of problem in the beginning getting started but once it got moving I've been with him about 2 years now and every month they're just like clockwork so if you'll call customer service there's a phone number here on the website they'll work with you to straighten it out

NOT WORTH ANYTHING
A few years ago I joined Scentbird and I loved it. I loved the concept. After about a year or so they started messing things up. I was promised credit, new shipment and received nothing. I quit for a while and decided to try it again. Well it’s happening again. Pay for two and get only one. This is by far the worst company ever. I’m going to cancel again but they already charged me for two of course so again they get free money

Scentbird was my favorite thing..till this summer. It took two months to get my last order. I was promised first a free case. Then a free scent. Then 10 dollar credit which would mean spending more money. I finally got my scent 6 weeks late with nothing. I cancelled my subscription.

The issue that you’re complaining about has been explained by Scentbird and has nothing to do with the scent. You’re review lowers the score for the scent which is unfair to those of us who use them to choose the fragrances.

Not just lust, love it!
Hard to decribe, seems true to the listed notes, blends in a seamless smooth scent that is classy and balanced. Powdery, creamy, floral, sweet without being loud, sharp, or over the top. I was worried about how strong the coconut would be. I love Creed Virgin Island Water, which contains a coconut note but doesn't smell heavy, dried or like sunscreen or hair products. This is not similar, but the quality of elegance and sweetness with balanced by some freshness is the same. The darker notes like rum and leather are present, but in such a gentle way that it doesn't overwhelm it all. That a perfume can manage to be floral, fruit, leathery and kind of gourmand while still smelling balanced is truly special.

True Lust
The initial scent on my skin is powdery and somewhat smoky, but given time to work with my own body chemistry it ends less powdery and more sweet through out the day. At the end of the day I can definitely smell the jasmine and sandalwood. I liked this scent and plan to queue more from this brand in the future.

Nice scent, doesn't last
I love the leathery dark scents and this one doesn't disappoint in the complexity of the fragrance. Longevity? Nope. As in 20 minutes later I could only smell a hint of it on my clothing. Unless I feel like applying every half hour, this one is a thumbs down.

Naww, I’m alright
To me this smelled like a mixture of a musty man, and incense. After it dries down the mustiness goes away, but to me it’s not worth it. I wouldn’t buy a bottle of it, and it’s actually more a winter or fall fragrance.

Powdery....
While I was reading the reviews saying this scent was powdery I was hoping it was just a matter of smell being so subjective. It's not /that/ subjective....This has an overwhelming powdery scent. I tried so hard to discern different notes but all I could detect was a freshly opened bottle of baby powder. There is a litttllee floral to it thats nice but its quickly overwhelmed. Not my favorite.

Something Different
Straight from the bottle it smells like baby powder, almost exclusively. However on the skin it comes to life. The leather and rum over power the coconut (for me at least, there are so many variations of a coconut smell that they may have used a more true coconut smell and less of a sweet version). By some miracle the jasmine comes through very very well. If you like the leather, but still want something feminine and floral I would recommend this fragrance.

Not My Favorite!
The notes listed for this scent had me very curious and excited, especially the coconut and rum notes. Unfortunately, the violet/powdery note is very overpowering. In the first hour of wearing this, I kept thinking I smelled like baby shampoo. As it dried down, I started to notice the leather note, which was very nice. I didn't find that it lasted very long, but it was very strong in the first few hours. I also found this to be a VERY feminine scent, and am surprised that it is listed as unisex.

True Lust is sexy and old school glamour....
I LOVE Etat Libre D'Orange (aka ELdO), and own a few of their scents. True Lust is definitely one of their sexier, more glamourous scents...definitely an evening date night 'fume. Think of the back in the day, vintage smell of a woman's lipsticks in a leather bag. Also in her bag is her bottle of scent, maybe a scented silk scarf. I enjoy True Lust very much! Glad to have this in my collection, and would consider a full size bottle if the right sale came along.....
