Was willing to give 'Bijou Romantique' a try...
The reason i started my Scentbird subscription was to try new perfume houses and new or unusual scents, in short, to step outside my comfort zone. I ignored the negative reviews and ordered it anyway, hoping to be impressed because the notes, according to Scentbird are coconut, vanilla, bergamot ... all scents I adore. This perfume was NOTHING like those notes! It was not a good scent on me, from start to finish. Bijou Romantique overpowered me and seemed to be a very mature scent, granny-like some reviewers noted. The sad thing is the sillage and longevity of this perfume was incredible- I continued to smell it on me throughout the day, and even on my clothes I had been wearing for days later! It was too powdery and reminded me of an unpleasant expired bottle of sunscreen. Try it if you must, but after my second chance spray I had to toss it. 😫

Better than expected!
Was very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the fragrance! Love trying new things I would not normally have access to without committing to making a larger purchase!

horrible old lady smell
This is a very strong scent and smells nothing of what it claims to. Alls I smell is baby powder and old lady. I dont smell any of its front or back tones. I realize different smells smell differently on other people, however I have had a couple people try it as well so I didnt feel like I was going crazy... and thats all they smell as well. I made the mistake of spraying it right before work and by noon I had a headache from it. no thank you! This is a HARD pass....

Powder House
Bijou Romantique opens with a sweet, vanilla blast with a tinge of bergamot. It dries down nicely into a woody, powdery coconut. I've heard it compared to Mugler Angel Muse and Guerlain Shalimar; if the two had babies, one of them could be Bijou Romantique.

Very overpowering and unpleasant scent
I thought it would be somewhat citrusy, as that is my scent preference and this was suggested. Horrible scent. Powdery, floral and not in a good way. It almost smelled like that scent from the 80s, Chantilly, that you could buy at the Walgreens counterr, but worse. It gave me a terrible headache and I wished I could have sent it back an gotten something else. Do not recommend this fragrance at all.

Strong and Clingly
I wasn't a huge fan of this scent. It lends a hand to scents that grab a hold of everything and is just too loud. I did like the one review that spoke of applying before bedtime and it was still around in the morning, I might try this technique to calm it down.

Not good
I wasn’t sure of the scent in the bottle, so I took a chance and put one spray on to try it out around the house. Big mistake. It was even worse on. It kinda smelled like someone was trying to cover up the scent of cat pee by covering it with baby powder. Thankfully I was home so I could change immediately.

Not my kind of scent
I'm not a fan of the scent. I'm more into floral sweet scents.

Mrs.C's review
Grown up coconut. Delish. I wanted to bathe in it. Complex but not heavy. Powerful but not obtuse.

Delicious!
I really liked this one! Not too sweet, I think I was expecting a more citrusy scent. It’s more warm & rich.

That sexy yum yum
This scent reminds me of Tom Ford Noir but it’s creamier and sexier. Definitely a winter scent. Dries down very softly on the skin and has pretty good staying power. I sprayed it before going to bed and my skin still had a faint scent which never happens.
