3.3 out of 5
It was okay
I'm not sure I'm a fan of pumpkin in my perfumes, it smells okay at first, but after a few hours it smells musty
Very nice flavor fragrance
This was a delightful surprise. I was not familiar with the product so decided to see what it was all about. It is an elegantly soft aroma and am very happy with the choice.
It's a little musty smelling for me. I can imagine other people describing the smell as complex.
I enjoyed this..
This scent reminds me of my grandparents house in a lovely, reminiscent way.. not like powder but like natural and lightly flowery with like ginger.. I don’t know, it’s light and nice but I don’t smell pumpkin which is why I wanted it..
I like this better as a fall scent - it seemed musky and orangey to me
What a unique scent! When I read the insert it said pumpkin and I was like, hmmm. But I can’t describe this scent. It is such a unique balance that I can’t pinpoint what’s in it. I love the woodsy sexy scents, my mom loves clean and flowery, and somehow we both love it.
Not My Thing
Does not smell good on me.
Cosy! Different. I love it.
Smelled way too floral and WAY too strong!!
When I received this scent, it smelled like it was super old. Would *not* recommend!
I liked it
I’d save it for holidays because it’s more of a warm occasion smell. I wouldn’t get a full bottle but I did like it
Not to bad just was weak by lunchtime
I love it
Simple earthly pleasures elevated to the devine
This scent took two simple words, placed them in a very sensual context and did them some serious justice. Also probably had them doing the least shameful Walk of Shame the morning-after has ever seen, too. It opens with an unabashedly sweet and candied lemoncello note reminiscent of the richest iced lemon pound cake. It is to be relished and floated in and absolutely adored. A jaw-tightening musk rushes through not seconds later and illicits memories of that first long-anticipated kiss with your crush and those morning-after moments that still make your skin tingle; carrying your shoes to your car while hurriedly answering early-morning texts was never so much fun! Finally it closes out with round notes of dark chocolate and coffee, two of a small family of flavors that can inspire moments of sensuality and physical indulgence without risking a citation for violation of public decency. Just like most hot nights and summertime crushes, Like This moves fast and is but a memory all too soon. That is its sole shortfall. Luckily, reapplication is a far sight easier than kindling a long resolved romance.
Smelled like an old lady perfume
Sweeter than I expected but nice!
I enjoyed this! I wasn’t sure how I felt about it initially, but it dried down really nicely and softened out.
Fancy at Waffle House
This perfume initially smells like a fancy lady’s perfume. Very strong floral scent that is mature. Then you get a feel for the “under” smell, which smells like pancake syrup. The strong floral scent wears off after an hour or so and you’re just left smelling like pancake syrup. I didn’t get any pumpkin vibes at all. It takes about 3-4 sprays to get the scent to last about half the day. That makes it pretty overpowering at first. But if you only do one spray, which makes the nature floral scent perfect, not only do you not get the pancake syrup scent at all, but the scent goes away entirely in less than an hour. I didn’t hate the scent. I just wish the pancake syrup scent mixed with the floral scent instead of feeling like they remained separate things. Or maybe I wish the pancake syrup scent was stronger so it held up to the floral scent.
Sweet and spicy
A tad overpowering for me...but of the other ELdO I have tried for ladies Including the unisex...this one is more in my scent preferences... Spicy orange with hint of floral...maybe a crisp musky base Like aquatic colognes...I prefer a Soft sandalwood base
I didn’t like it
I liked it out of the bottle, but when sprayed I didn’t like it. I can see the comparison to Etat Libre d’Orange’s Noel au Balcon, but IMO NaB is way better.
I quite like this fragrance but I don't think I would repurchase.
not my style
I didn't like this fragrance at all. It reminded me of something that an old lady would wear. I threw it away.
too soft for my taste, but pleasant and unique
This smells crisp and citrusy out of the bottle, and dries to a subtly spicy pumpkin. I'm a fan of earthy, woodsy scents, and it has a bit of that, but it's a little too far in the floral/sweet direction on me.
Not for me.
Not crazy about this fragrance.
Not my favorite but I don’t hate it
I was hoping for something more musky- gingery but didn't get that at all. Very floral with a pleasant pumpkin undertone. Some people will love it, unfortunately strong florals never seem to work on my skin so I'll be giving this away.
I like it. Just not something I would buy.
I liked this it’s very fresh
new scent for me and I loved it
How would you describe this scent? Is it fresh?
This is a perfect everyday scent that I can wear to work and not worry about it being overpowering. Great for the summer months in my opinion.
Not too Femme
I typically go for more masculine scents, I like this one a lot. It does have a hint of femme with the citrus overtone, sometimes there are hints of a perfume that my Aunt used to wear when she was younger from Bobby Mac.
This wasn't what I picked I was sent something because what I was suppose to receive wasn't available. But this didn't match my selections at all. Want full refund. It's horrible
I really like the scent of this spray, it aligns with my preferences, but it doesn't last anytime at all. I would have to use so much of it it would be ridiculous considering the small container one receives.
I love the spicy notes, and it lasts.
This was not what I expected.
Maybe something my grandma would like.
It’s not a bad perfume. I just wasn’t expecting to smell like a nursing home..
Like nothing else
I don’t even know how to describe this one. It’s warm and delicious, yet grounded. It’s not too girly or flighty, but it’s decidedly femme. It lasts forever. You can smell all notes, and yet somehow none individually. It’s a truly unique scent. I say try it, even if you hate it, it must be experienced.
Elegant fresh fragrance
Smells like fall
Loved this. I smell like a pumpkin dessert
I have tried a few scents by this house and they intrigue me enough to keep trying them. While Noel au Balcon is a favorite of mine...a sweet-spicy orange Christmas in a bottle type scent. ELdO's Like This is pumpkin, and a light ginger. Its not sweet or citrusy (on me), and not woody (although woody types may enjoy this scent most). It reminds me of the pumpkin puree that goes into a pie (before you add any sweetness to it). It's homey, comforting, soft even. My guy is more a fan of this one than I as he fell asleep sniffing my wrist while i read in bed yesterday. Glad i tried a sample, but not for me. Remarkable People was a bit more my style, but i much prefer ELdO's Dangerous Complicity for a soft and comforting die down scent.
Not for me.
smell like your cool aunt
Love this scent
Very fun perfume!
Wonderful warm autumn scent that's just slightly spicy.
Did not care for the smell. Does not smell like citrus.
I like that this is citrusy and a bit musky. It is just slightly strong for every day.
Ginger and molasses overpowered this scent. It is not one I enjoy.
Orange all the way!
This smelled like tobacco on my skin. I couldn't get past the tobacco smell to find out if any of the notes would come through after dry down.
sweet and flat
just wasn't for me, better for a younger woman/girl.
I love citrus scents but this is a disappointment. I was hoping for a clean crisp fragrance but this is powdery and strong floral notes. It reminds me of an older woman’s fragrance from my childhood. It’s a “no” for me.
I’m disappointed that I didn’t smell any pumpkin in this, that was what i was looking forward to. It’s mostly ginger then nutty with a hint of cinnamon. The dry down is nice, the ginger fades and it’s a nice subtle spice.
I love this scent!! It's fresh, clean and have a crisp citrus note.
Warm and Clean
this perfume is somehow both warm and fresh at the same time. The ginger and citrus give some spice and freshness while the pumpkin and floral notes make it more cozy. Interesting scent that definitely lasts a while. It gets a bit sweeter and more subtle as the day goes on.
Loved it...but scent didn't last long. Would cost a mint to keep the scent going

Fall but not too much
I was all excited to try this one as I live in Florida and do not really get a "Fall". I think it fit the profile but did not last long enough for me. It smells like Pumpkin Spice which is what I was hoping for. It has just the right amount of pumpkin and not too much of the spice. I gave it a 4 based on the fact it wears off too quickly and has me wanting more throughout the day.
25 to 34
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.
25 to 34
Wore off very quickly and was a little too "warm" for me.
45 to 54
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!
45 to 54
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.
25 to 34
Did Not Enjoy
I spritzed this once and already knew I did not like it. It smells like old orange cleaning liquid to me. Not a fan.
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!
35 to 44
25 to 34
Not a fan
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.
35 to 44
Smells like the start of fall.
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⭐.
25 to 34
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.
35 to 44
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.
25 to 34
It’s alright, dries ok into a sweeter scent but definitely does not smell like pumpkin and is kind of overpowering at first.
55 to 64
Etat Libre d Orange
Did not like this fragrance. Body chemistry did not mesh well.
25 to 34
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.
45 to 54
Light and unusual
This is not how I imagine Tilda Swinton smelling at all. This scent is comforting, casual. This could easily be someone's signature scent.
25 to 34
Very Citrusy-- not quite my style. was able to give it to someone who loved it though!
35 to 44
25 to 34
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.
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.
One of my favorites!
Bright and clean but still sexy. Long-lasting without being overbearing
not what i ordered
I ordered Michael Kors Wonderlust and got this instead. It's fine, but I'm annoyed.
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.
Definitely get pumpkin pie from this.
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.
I like it
I don't really smell the pumpkin, but do get the ginger. My nose likes it.
Better after the drydown
Starts off sort of medicinal but then dries down to somewhat pleasant. I don't love it though and would not ever purchase a full size bottle.
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.
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 didnt really care for it
I got this weird starting smell out of the bottle, then on my skin it turned this weird earthy and almost cat urine smell on me. It smells ok if I spray it on my cloths but if I heat up it goes funky again. Just doesnt like my PH i guess
Thank you. First note I smelled was urine.
I thought this would remind me of fall, but instead it just smells like sunscreen. Spicy sunscreen.
Too strong and does not smell good at all.
Smells very strongly of pumpkin & despair. Felt sick the entire time I wore it
Little too spicy
I was excited for this but it's a bit disappointing. It has a full spice and sweet scent with a sour finish. There isn't much complexity to it
A gorgeous, unique smell for sure! I absolutely love this scent. It's perfect for autumn and has a nice spiciness without being too over-powerful. Lasts all day which is a plus and got loads of compliments! if you're looking for a unique spicy scent, this is definitely for you.
I loved this scent layered and long lasting. Designed by Tulsa Swinton.
This smelled great!!! Not to heavy just enough fragrance lasted all day. Great light fruity!!!
The cologne has a very spicy smell. Not hot spicy, but it’s definitely a kitchen spice smell mixed with some floral and citrus. I love it, but masculine cologne wearers go elsewhere.
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.
Honestly, not really one of my favorites. It wasn't horrible, but I won't be choosing this one again. It was a bit more mature than I was hoping for and doesn't really smell the way it was described.
This is one of my new favorite scent! Its very clean smell and can wear it any time.
It smells like sunscreen with an after whiff of orange. Terrible. It does not smell like most of the notes listed.
i really liked this scent but wasnt sure the first time i tried it so i gave it another chance and really loved it im not sure which notes stand out the most its a little spicy and warm
This is such a gorgeous, unique fragrance. Time to buy a bottle of this liquid gold.
Spicy but candied scent
I enjoyed elements of this scent, but I would’ve preferred it to be crisper. It’s got a definite heavy ginger scent, but the additional notes give it a candied ginger lasting scent and I would’ve preferred it without the heavy sugariness.
Nothing like described
i ordered this hoping for a nice spicey fall scent. NOPE! This perfume is awful. It smells nothing like any of the notes listed. It is hard to explain what it smells like but the description is not right.
So light and warm
this scent is so light and warm smelling it reminds me of a cashmere throw blanket. It feels sexy. It feels warm. It feels beautiful. Very lightly sweet, a bit soapy at times, and absolutely lovely. EVeryone raves about how great this smells on me.
Love, Love, Love
Libre is one of my favorites and I have not found a fragrance I did not like. The light citrus scent in Like This is wonderful. And it is proven men are attracted to citrus scents!! Highly recommend from me <3
not bad, but not for me. sweeter than i was expecting and dries down to a generic white musk scent on me quickly.
It smells awful. Take it off the market. Doesn't even deserve 1 star.
Not as described
This perfume is awful. I would not have guessed any of the notes listed. It has a fake black licorice scent to it.
Reminds me of fall. It has a subtle scent, however it’s just not my particular favorite. Last for about 5hrs ..
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 think Like This is sweeter because of the tangerine & pumpkin. I love the way Like This changes as it wears down. I wore it to work & kept having coworkers ask me what scent I was wearing. I didn't want to tell them because I want it to be all mine!
I like it. But it doesn't last long
I really liked the subtle fruity smell of this perfume. Not too strong, just a hint of grapefruit. It smells so good that I added another to my que.
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.
My fiancé and I were coming home from dinner and we stopped by the post office and this scent was there. I sprayed a small amount on my wrist to try it and he and I both loved it. The next day my mother in law came over and complimented me on my perfume. My fiancé said I needed the big bottle and he wants to spray it in all of his vehicles so it smelled like me. ❤️
I did not like this smell. I can't even describe it...tried to give it away to several woman I work with and no one would even take it. Would not recommend.
I did not like this smell, it had a strange sweet musky smell and was not for me, even my 8 year old daughter won't wear it
I did not care for this one, it had a strange smell, even my 8 year old said so
I just love this scent. It wears so well and smells awesome all day long.
I just love this scent. It wears so well and smells awesome all day long.
When I first sprayed this perfume, I loved it. THEN.... 10 minutes went by and it morphed into a syrupy, old musk smell that gave me a headache. I tried it two more times (on different days) and the same thing happened. I'm disappointed :(
Not a fan of this scent. The initial spray smells great but as it dries down I smell a syrupy, old, scent that is heavy on the musk. I'm nearing 50 years old but even I feel this is an 'old lady scent'.
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.
I don't have anything to complain about with this fragrance, but it just doesn't wow me or isn't memorable to me. It doesn't seem to be unique or have that magic. I would not buy this fragrance bc I only buy the ones that really intrigues me. It is ok to have around as a spare or to wear to the office though.
The opening is bright and sunny orange and neroli as it settles The immortal takes over with pumpkin giving earthy support and ginger as a background note keeping the sunny warmth. This is a late summer/early fall dried meadow to me, bit it is also surprisingly elegant.
Disappointed in this perfume. Pumpkin caught my eye but it smells nothing like the described notes. Really didn’t smell like much at all to me, even when I sprayed on my clothes.
