Dries down to a wonderful scent!
I wasn't sure I liked it when I spritzed it on- really sweet, but with a tang of apricot behind it- but after the dry down it was marvelous! I can definitely smell the honey, apricot, and orange blossom, and the ghost of patchouli and cinnamon, and it blends into a soft, delicious scent that has me sniffing my wrists to get more of it!

Lasting scent
At first, the smell is a bit strong and cologne like but it dries down to a more sweet and complex scent that lasts a long time on me. I definitely smell the honey. It is a warm, cozy scent perfect for fall and winter. Love it!

Christmas in the tropics
This frag lives up to exactly what it promises, playful naughtiness and all. Smelling of spiced stewed fruits, it’s such an odd perfume that it actually puzzled my spouse as to what it was supposed to “be” until I described it as ‘Christmas in Hawaii’. True, you can smell the tropics behind the spice.I loved all of the notes on paper, but for one reason or another I wasn’t overly fond of the fragrance. I guess I’m not a fan of stewed fruit. Since that really is what this smells like, If you’re excited by the idea—or if you're looking for a tropical scent with a Christmassy kick—I would still recommend this scent as a good one.

Use sparingly
Nice but strong fragrance. The citrus and patchouli are very prominent. This should be worn lightly and given time to air out before trying to judge the scent.

Another scent that I don’t love, but don’t hate. The floral seems to take over (at least for me), and I expected much more of a warm, spicy scent, so was disappointed.

Very strong. The Patchouli is over powering-i am not a pachouli fan- and the orange is more of a strong rine smell than actual orange. I wish there was a way to return this. Also, husband hated it. Hope I get something better next time.

First try was a thumbs down.
No where on these scent notes does it include patchouli, however, it is one of the first things listed when the perfume arrived. I enjoy the cinnamon and orange notes in this, but it is not a scent I would ever wear. Just... ick.

Spicy, sweet and delicious.
At first, I thought this was a little heavy & mature smelling. By midday, I decided this sweet & spicy scent was like a delicious hug - I have gotten so many compliments on this one and it's on my list for a full bottle purchase. It's more of a wintery scent, so I'll hold off at least until Fall, but it's definitely going in my rotation. My favorite ELDO scent now.

Sweet and inviting
I’m incredibly happy that I purchased this one! It smells amazing. Perfect for winter months-it’s sweet and inviting, but not sticky sweet at all because of a bit of spice. It does smell a bit like the holidays. I get asked what I’m wearing all the time-if you’re on the fence, go for it with this one. It is so good!

A classic oriental
First blast is a big indolic jasmine, which soon mellows out to a lovely spiced honey. The jasmine is present but not overpowering, and this is overall a very classic oriental, old-school but not outdated. Lasts a long time with good projection.

Nice enough. Doesn't last very long though
I enjoy this perfume. The citrus is strong at the start, and then the warmer notes kick in, but it just doesn't last very long. Disappears completely in about an hour. Probably a good thing if you're heading to an office, but I couldn't even smell it on myself.

Reminds me of Amarige Givenchy
This perfume is amazing! I smell the honey which makes it a warm scent 🍯 and then the cinnamon gives it a spicy kick. It reminds me of fall. It’s sexy and I love it! There’s a citrusy clean element as well that I like.

Not for me
On paper, this sounds wonderful, cinnamon, honey, apricot. In reality, it’s pretty cloying, especially the opening note. Huge blast of spiced orange and it’s not good. It’s very familiar, but very strong. I think the orange blossom would’ve been enough OR the mandarin orange, not both. It’s more warm than spicy as it dries down, but still way, way too sweet. Since everything here should blend together well, I have to assume either the proportions are off or one or some of the ingredients are not high quality. It actually doesn’t smell cheap, but something is just plain wrong. I can’t put my finger on it. More something I would spray in my lingerie drawers than something I would put on my skin.

Old hippie lady
I wanted to try something different but I should have known better than to go with a Patchouli base. The first rush was like walking into a dingy thrift store with incense burning to cover the smell of moldy old books. To be fair, it is complex, and the dry-down wasn't bad. I just don't want to smell like an old Stevie Nicks poster.

There is no patchouli in it. It may smell bad to you, but don't think that a) all hippies wore patchouli and b) that you have a right to be so incredibly rude.

Mulled Wine
I would describe this perfume like mulled wine. With all the spices and the orange it immediately makes me feel warm and comfy. I think the strongest scents in this perfume are honey and orange. I really do enjoy the scent but I wouldn't really want it as my every day perfume. I do find myself smelling it A LOT however It is very potpourri smelling and I think I will use it to freshen up my apartment or something. It will get used, but just not on my person.

I really wanted to love this, but it smells like walking into a candle store during Christmas-time.

Very unique
On me, this scent is much more sweet than spicy. It's extremely unique and has actually been my favorite of the three scents I've tried so far. I do feel like it's more of a fall/winter scent. I absolutely love it (and I'm 41)!

Warm, spicy but sweet
On first spray of this scent I smell honey very strongly. I detect the spiciness but it's not overwhelming. There is a smoothness to the scent. It is a warm scent, definitely for the fall/winter months. It's just okay for me. I have to admit though, that right after I spray it I always get the thought of bug repellent. Something about it reminds me of bug repellent and that could be the citrus mixing in.

Not So Spicy But Warm and Sexy

Gourmand done right
This is a really well-rounded scent. Vanilla and honey are noticeable but don't make the scent sweet because they're so well balanced. Other notes I pick up are neroli, apricot, cinnamon and musk. Citrus is bright in the beginning but mellows out in the dry down. This perfume has great lasting power on me and I find myself catching whiffs of it throughout the day from my skin & clothing. This is a grown up gourmand, I love it! Great perfume for "warming up" the winter months.

cozy winter scent
I agree with the other users who said this doesn't have great lasting power, but it was beautiful while it was on. I'll start by saying my body chemistry doesn't like citrus scents and I think they all smell like oven cleaner on me so it was risky choosing this for my monthly sample but I really wanted something Christmasy and the risk paid off. The initial spray was all orange and I thought I'd have to scrub it off, but it dried down to a beautiful sweet and spicy scent that was more cinnamon and honey than anything else. I got used to the starting point the more I wore it and I'm definitely going to be purchasing a full size next winter.

Nice Gourmand
Fruity and sweet, this is apricot, cinnamon and vanilla over a woody base that keeps it from veering into cloying or foody territory..this is still very much a fragrance. Reminds me a bit of Aspen or Nest Citrine, only more fruity.

Smells sorta like incense (if that's your thing!)
Upon first smell, really reminds me of nag champa/sandalwood incense. Very woodsy, not so much floral. Once the scent has had time to settle into the skin, it sort of loses that smell. Probably wont be getting again.

Love it
It's a Christmassy version of the Tilda Swinton Like This. It has many similarities. More vanilla and cinnamon but I still get this pleasant sweetness in the dry down that is almost identical. Same gourmand, homey, candle smell. No complaints, that's what I like in the cold months.

I love this - I don't normally like fragrances that are too sweet or too food-like, but this manages to strike a good balance between a spicy floriental and your average vanilla/honey gourmand. It's a teeny bit animalic on me at the end but juuuust enough. Perfect for holiday parties. Note: this smells completely different on my skin than it does sprayed onto a tester or into the air. It's much more interesting on the skin.

Not a fan of this one. As other reviewers have noted, it's not nearly as complex as the description would suggest. It mentions vanilla-tangerine and honey, but all I got was orange/citrus, and not a pleasant one at that. I thought this would be a good choice for the holidays, but this doesn't remind me of Christmas at all. An artificial orange scent, with old lady undertones, sadly. :(

And I love honey, so it’s not really a bad thing. It’s a great perfume with a lovely smell. It’s just not what I expected. I will wear this all the time, though. I’m very glad I got it!

This perfume is light, spicy, and complex in a good way - like a good citrus sangria or mulled cider. The online reviews billed it as a winter fragrance, but I believe it would be appropriate year round. It lasts for about 1/2 of the day, so it is not super long lasting. I received several compliments while wearing it, and intend to buy a bottle soon.

Noel au Balcon is a beautiful example of sugar and spice in perfect harmony. It's warm and inviting yet not overbearing, sweet and rich yet not at all cloying. I'd normally consider the notes as those of an undeniably winter frag but Balcon manages to shine in any temp. Definitely a sophisticated and multifaceted keeper.

Initially this smells nice and spicy with a citrus kick. However, after being on my skin for a while it smells more like an old lady scent. It's not bad, just not for me. It isn't overpowering and does last. I don't need a reapplication but I think for those of you who choose to do so it won't overwhelm you with fragrance.

Not as intense or interesting as I was hoping for, but still nice and pleasant. Not nearly as festive as I was expecting.

I love this scent. It's spicy and interesting. Not a sweet smell. One of my new go to favorites.

This is a nice perfume for the winter holidays, a little sweet for me, but I enjoyed being able to try it. I would love to see more Etat Libre D'Orange offerings here at Scentbird.

Wasn't sure what to expect with this one, but this is only perfume that caused me to involuntarily exclaim "Holy s**t!" (in a good way) when spraying on the first time. This is a strong, warm, somewhat sweet, sexy scent that doesn't smell like something a teenager or cheap stripper would automatically gravitate to. Definitely a unique scent! Strong when first sprayed on with good sillage. Fades down over time, as would be expected, but can still catch a whiff of it fairly late in the day. My new signature scent!

Love this. I'm going to get a second month of this for my winter perfume. This scent is sweet and warm but different.

This is a very sweet, spicy, rich and warm fragrance. Silage is quite strong, and it lasts about 2-3 hours on skin and up to 12 hours on clothes. It does not live up to its tawdry description however, as it is a perfectly ladylike Oriental scent. Definitely a Fall/Winter fragrance; it would overpower in warmer months.

I really love this scent for day wear. It's zesty, but with some spice too. It is not overbearing, although it goes on strong. It quickly settles down, though to a superbly wearable scent.

Nice and sweet (but not too sweet). It doesn't last very long though.

Blech, blech, blech - This smelled like an old lady who put on every perfume she ever owned, then went out to a rad dance party, sweated a whole bundle doing the jig with her dance partner, then forgot to take a bath when she got home, then went to sleep, and woke up the next morning laced in gin and perfume. No thank you. No thank you. No thank you.

From most of the reviews, you'd think that ELDO was the world's next Femme, or at least a sexed-up Ambre Narguile or Nuit de Noel. But what I mostly get is Angel, if not in notes, then in spirit. Not that that's a bad thing, really, but what my nose interprets is far removed from the hyperbolic promises of extreme naughtiness that so many reviewers have breathlessly lavished on this concoction. I appreciate the initial blast of cinnamon, but it fights with the orange note in a way that doesn't read as mulled spiced wine so much as mall store candle. So, yeah, if X-rated by today's contemporary standards means a bit of musk and some spices, hey, taste is subjective, so who am I to judge? I'll just stick to the classics like Shalimar et al, if I want some true-blue skank.

I was not a fan of this one. I tried it a couple of times and the smell was almost making me nauseous. I agree with the other reviewer that said the first spray is brash and smells like a Yankee candle. When it settles it reminds me of orange cleaner and has a chemical smell. I normally love all the scents it's comprised of, but something about this doesn't work for me. This is the first scent I dislike enough not to use and will be giving it away.

I love other Etat Libre D' Orange perfumes. However, on my skin this perfume reminded me of bug repellent spray. Sadly not one I cared for.
