Vanilla and Spice=Everything Nice!
This is beautiful. I smell cinnamon, my fave note but it's not listed as a note in this. It has a "Play-Doh" vibe to me n that's a good thing. My only issue is that the projection and longevity is horrible. I like HUGE, BOLD, SMACK YOU IN THE FACE SO YOU REMEMBER ME type of scents, lol. And this is not that. It's relatively cheap (if u shop on eBay) for a niche brand. It'd get the highest rating from me, if only it didn't turn into a skinscent within an hour.

Just didn’t like the smell of it. Honestly smelled like old lady perfume. And once again I forgot to add an item to my order so I just got shipped this and don’t think it’s rite that when they auto ship they pick something with hardly no stars at all. I’m still paying every month for the subscription at least send me something that is popular !!!!

Not great
Even though there are descriptions, I still don't know how these are going to smell. It's so hard to tell if I'll like an aroma profile. It seemed like I would like it, but I don't. I don't like ordering perfumes online, I really need to smell them first. I don't understand how people randomly pick scents without experiencing them first.

GROSS! Discontinued my subscription cause of these stinky old dated fragrances and when asked them to replace they said they would BUT GUESS WHAT THEY NEVER REPLACED ANYTHING SO JUST GO TO ULTA AMD BY YOUR FRAGRANCES INSTEAD OH OR AMAZON TOO !!
They are a lousy fragrance company and won’t replace anything even tho they tell you they will and they are old and dated fragrances not worth it just order on amazon or online ULTA store

LOVE AT FIRST SNIFF
I've had sent bird since the spring, I get two fragrances a month period this is the first time I've ever liked one. Most smells, smell cheap to me. Most smells remind me of a hundred people before that I did not like. This smell on the other hand, is unique, smells expensive, and last with a light sent until the next morning's shower. The sent is not overpowering. Good for everyday. Powder, amber, bergamot, ylang ylang, clary sage, velvetier, coconut, and vanilla, marry for a warm complex sent. I'm generally a Prada Les Infusions Mimosa, and Iris buyer, but I might be purchasing the full size of this sent. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Love it or Hate it
Oh ELdO my Love. Your scents are either a fabulous wonderful WOW in my collection, or a total flop. You are so experimental, i always try you with NO expectations, knowing full well you could be my new favorite, or downright awful. I see many many (many) reviews that hate your Bijou Romantique. Yet i find you to be a thick, spicy sweet, (even romantic) sexy surprise. You're intoxicating. Some may say heavy and cloying. (A little bit goes a long way.) You mellow and soften to a powdery drydown. ELdO followers, just ignore the image that italian lemon and bergamot topnotes and popping pink berries on a breezy tropical summer day evoke. This is NOT that. Instead focus on the the spicy floral sage and ylangylang, the thick earthy heavy vertiver and patchouli base, paired with vanilla coconut sweetness. It's like waking up on an island vacation, with the musky spicy scent of sex still on your skin from the night before, and hints of the body oil you wore to the beach yesterday adding to the allure.

Heavy, Sweet Fragrance
Very heavy, sweet and powdery fragrance with notes of Vanilla - maybe I will like it better in winter, but for summer, I would not wear it. I think this could be a unisex fragrance and would be appropriate for either a man or a woman. Just not my style, but I'm open-minded and will continue to try it, hoping the fragrance will develop while on my skin.
