5 stars for originality
This one is challenging for me. First time I sprayed it all I could think about was that nighttime baby body wash-- no idea why, as there are zero notes in common. I think it must be something about the slight honey aspect of the immortelle mixed with musk. I like it enough to keep it around and use as a wildcard when I don't know what to wear.

Not as described...
This scent was described as main notes of pumpkin, musk, ginger, tangerine and immortelle. However, the description I received with the scent depicted notes of pumpkin, ginger and heliotrope. I expected fruity and spicy, it is not at all. I found it dry (powdery) and floral with a hint of raw pumpkin. Not at all like the warm, fall-inspired scent I was hoping to receive. Headache-inducing. Ugh!

Not what I remember, sadly
I tried this years ago and it smelled of dried grass and wildflowers. This time, it smells like licorice first on, with a coffee feel. Maybe the pumpkin is canned and is imparting a caramelized feel? I don't know why it would smell so different (time, chemistry, the sample?) but this has tons of licorice in it and not much else. I soaked my wrist and that’s all I got. It then faded super fast to a faint skin scent, though that lasted all day. It's okay, not bad in any way, but the strange dark murkiness of it was odd. I had my sister try it and she got 100% white florals. It's fun in it's way, definitely different on different people, but I would not buy a full bottle or bother to sample it again.

Spicy Floral Goodness
This fragrance is wonderfully floral and spicy, not at all gourmand like the description might indicate. Longevity and and projection is outstanding, I can always smell this fragrance throughout the day and sometimes into the next on my clothes. Only 4 stars because this can get a little heady and be much too strong for some people, even if applied with a light hand. But overall this is a perfect fall scent!

I was really excited to get this scent as I thought it was going to be like fall in a bottle, but I was less than impressed. I really didn't get any pumpkin or musk, I primarily got tangerine and ginger, and it was way too sweet for for my liking (to the point it gave me a headache). If you like sweet and some citrus, this is the scent for you, just not for me.

I can smell the pumpkin and orange scent in this perfume. It smells spicy but fresh. To me it is perfect for September to bring in the fall. Does not last the longest on me, so that's why I only have it 4⭐.

This is my signature scent. It's everything that I want in a fragrance. It's uni-sex and has an undertone of oranges. It's so delightful. My only complaints are the price tag and the lasting power.

Fall, ehhhh.
I wanted to love it...truly. I'm in love with remarkable people by the same company. Let me preface this with, it isn't bad. The ginger comes through heavy on the front with the floral scent. After it dries a bit, you smell the pumpkin. Slight dash of maybe a baby powder scent after about five minutes. Granted it's mid August and it has a more fall, crisp leaves falling scent. Not a summery scent. The bright side is it definitely doesn't last long and if you put your nose to the wrist all you smell after a few hours is the faint sweet floral scent. Everything else has faded. Not a terrible scent. Just not for me.

Aggressive Ginger
I choose this perfume sample because I LOVE the scent of pumpkin in my skincare and haircare products. But I can't smell pumpkin at all when wearing this scent--all you get is the loaded spiciness of ginger. The scent had too much of a tang for me and I totally didn't get the scent profile I was looking for.

Amazing scent!
I am so glad I decided to try this! It's not a strong scent. It's light, sweet, warm & flirty. This is now my FAVORITE perfume in my collection. At first, I got the ginger but once I sprayed it on it smelled like some sort of delicious sweet ginger pumpkin pastry that you would only find during Autumn, lol. My only issue with it is that it doesn't last long which is making me go through the bottle quickly.

Pretty yummy
I’ve really liked most fragrances from Etat Libre d’Orange, so I was anxious to try Like This. I’m glad I did, and I know I’ll reach for it often. I don’t smell the pumpkin, but it’s warm, sweet and spicy all at once. I was shocked at how long a single spritz lasted-all day. It’s dry down is pleasant, and not overpowering. If you like sweeter fragrances, give this one a shot. It’s yummy!

Unique, cozy floral
After reading Bois de Jasmin's review (they called it "a strange and unconventional blend"), I expected something much more avant garde. It's unique but not particularly daring, which is not a bad thing. It's appropriate for work or evening wear. The edible notes like tangerine, ginger, and pumpkin aren't distinguishable, but they combine with the immortelle and heliotrope to make a mouth-watering floral. It reminds me of the sadly-discontinued Une Fleur de Chanel.

Airy and light and unisex
A unique and captivating fragrance. I don't get much pumpkin, but likely because it is pumpkin flesh - not cooked, spiced pumpkin. There's definitely a vegetal, garden smell in with ginger, heliotrope and eventually immortelle and musk. The vetiver keeps it from being sweet. It's airy and light and unisex, but intriguing. I keep smelling my wrist and smiling. Outdoorsy but cozy if that makes sense at all. It's a close-to-the-skin scent, so no big sillage but lasts for about 3-4 hours before I spritz again.

Lovely
When I first got this scent, I was not overwhelmed. It's pleasant, a warm and cozy type of scent, but subtle. I was hoping for something a bit bolder or longer lasting, but this grew on me. A few months later, and I am buying a full bottle as soon as possible. It's an "anytime" scent and works well in the office. With an extra spritz it could transition to evening for the more subtle people. It's not a vanilla, but I think people who like vanilla scents with a hint of mild spice (think chai, not chili) will love this. While this might not be a flashy scent, it is one I hope to make my signature. Warm and mildly spicy without being sweet, not overbearing, and not "juvenile" or too old.

Weird & wonderful
Fall in a bottle, without any of the "pumpkin spice" cliches. A vegetal rather than sweet take on pumpkin & an excellent use of immortelle, whose maple-like and hay-like facets are showcased here. Smells like a memory of your mom baking pumpkin pie on a breezy autumn afternoon.

Torn on this one
I debated whether to give this 3 or 4 stars, but I think it ultimately isn't a scent I would use more of once my sample is gone. The first notes I get when spraying this are fleshy pumpkin and some sort of kitchen spice, possibly clove, although the description says ginger. The mixture is a little too realistic, more like groceries instead of like a warm fall-scented candle. The spice fades quickly, and I get a faint but unpleasant pumpkin smell for maybe an hour or so. At this point, I stop sniffing my wrist because it makes me feel a little ill. A few hours later, a light, cinnamon-y sweetness emerges out of nowhere and lasts for the rest the day. It's unclear if the cheerful, lovely drydown redeems the weird opening.

Potpourri spice...
So I finally received my November fragrance... it’s now December 8th. 🙄 Let me start off by saying I am a huge fan of Noel Au Balcon. (Which is a great cold weather/holiday fragrance; definitely worth checking out!) That said, Like This may be in the same family as Noel, buuuut unfortunately I fear it’s just not as good. Other reviewers say things like “smells similar to potpourri or air freshener.” Sadly I Immediately scoff and assume “oh what do they know...” Please scoff at my review cuz, Like This smells just like that; straight up Air freshener. Ginger Spiced, cinnamon-sweet holiday notes. Warm, clean and inviting. Ho ho ho. It’s not terrible mind you. In fact I will admit, while I was waiting in the check out line someone did comment. Just don’t expect your classic scent; it’s outside the box. Enjoy.

I received my December 2018 order right near the end of the month, if I'm not mistaken; prior to that, I had not received ANYTHING in the mail from SB since like early October-ish, IIRC? From ≈ late October/early November, I suddenly began to receive what was in my eyes an extraordinarily-unusual influx of Scentbird notification emails, the kind letting you know that they've deleted a particular fragrance choice from your preset queue of selections for *one* reason or another, and they just wanted to keep you informed of anything that'd suddenly changed, & aside from those aforementioned, I'd not received any additional shipping data - electronically or otherwise - or explanatory-/apologetic-esque emails of any kind *whatsoever* since then, until this morning - Saturday, January 26, 2019 - wherein I discovered not 1, but ~2~! tracking-info messages in my mailbox, each containing details for a separate fragrance package, both of which were set to arrive by Monday at the latest, but which seemed more likely to already be out for delivery & en route to my residence with today's bundle o' bills, oddly enough...one of the scents in question was January's; the other, freaking **NOVEMBER'S.** Almost February 2019 before I finally ended up getting my November 2018 order, which December somehow got around mysteriously without incident. Hopefully they are now all sorted out & have administratively-reorganized with the arrival of another new year + a clean slate to start fresh from so we aren't made to suffer the adversely-ill aftereffects of such poorly-executed, unbelievably-chaotic, corporate-level business decisions of such similar ilk.

I didn't know what to expect when I read the description. I think I chose this because of Tilda Swinton, and I'm very glad I did! I get a soft spiciness, but it's more of a gentle warmth, not the zing one would expect. "All the comforts of home," describes this perfectly.

This is my favorite. It's unique and unlike the other scents I've tried from scentbird. I'm reminded of Dune but only because they're both spicy & complex.

I'm giving it a 3.5 personally, but gave it a 4 because I wouldn't want to discourage anyone else from trying this one. I love the first blast, it's very mandarin orange and fresh ginger, with a slight sparkling ginger ale feel. This part was awesome, what later unfolded was rather interesting, I felt I smelled a bit like an auntie's spice cabinet. There was that bit of musk, and I'm not a musk gal, but mixed with the light spiciness it wasn't so bad. Give it a shot, it's certainly interesting.

At first it bursts forth with ginger, like the Origins perfume, and I couldn't tell if I liked it or not. About 20 minutes have passed and the dry down is a nice sweet, gingery, slightly pumpkiny, nutmegy, warm, a little citrusy perfect for fall smell. I would describe it as fall-fresh, as opposed to summer-fresh. The ginger notes are strong. I like it right now, but it could grow on me as I use it more.

Grown pumpkin
At first blush it almost seems too fruity or sweet for me, but that dries down almost immediately and it becomes just sweet enough for summer, and evolves into a more comforting scent. Most people pick the pumpkin and ginger for fall, but I find Like This to be a scent that carries me through the seasons. One of my favs.
