Too much like baby powder

Very nice
At first reminded me of Loves Baby Soft from my Jr High school days. After applied, just a more grown up sexy version. Clean, long lasting, not overwhelming at all. Will use this for everyday.

I absolutely loved this one! So disappointed that it only last for about half an hour. Wish it lasted longer! Nice fresh scent then under tones of the rum and coconut....great combo, now fix it to last longer please!

Too Baby-Powdery.
This may be the third and last fragrance I've tried by this label. Each one has been a disappointment. There is nothing 'lustful' about this fragrance. Starts off offensively powdery and dries down to a common knock-off perfume. I was hoping for warm and complex and got Love's Babysoft's annoying cousin.

I was really interesting in trying scentbird because the obvious of various perfumes being shipped monthly to try something new but after reading all these horrible reviews today I'm glad I didn't subcribe last month as I was going to! Thank you reviewers you saved me $$$

Not happy
I sighed up with sentbird through a friend.. Still have not received my first sent or the free one it was supposed to come with. Nor did o receive the little case. I have received second month that I paid for, but was not the sent that I put for. They have charged me 3 time and I’m just tired. I was trying to give them time to correct it. I don’t think they will. Trying to cancel subscription 😪

if you'll get hold of customer service they'll take care of any problems you have this really is a good website I had a little bit of problem in the beginning getting started but once it got moving I've been with him about 2 years now and every month they're just like clockwork so if you'll call customer service there's a phone number here on the website they'll work with you to straighten it out

NOT WORTH ANYTHING
A few years ago I joined Scentbird and I loved it. I loved the concept. After about a year or so they started messing things up. I was promised credit, new shipment and received nothing. I quit for a while and decided to try it again. Well it’s happening again. Pay for two and get only one. This is by far the worst company ever. I’m going to cancel again but they already charged me for two of course so again they get free money

Not happy!
Scentbird was my favorite thing..till this summer. It took two months to get my last order. I was promised first a free case. Then a free scent. Then 10 dollar credit which would mean spending more money. I finally got my scent 6 weeks late with nothing. I cancelled my subscription.

Pleasant Surprise
I’m somewhat a creature of habit so trying this frangrance was completely outside my comfort zone. To my surprise, True Lust has become one of my favorite scents. It’s sweet, flirty, and fun. Matches me perfectly! I would definitely recommend this!

The issue that you’re complaining about has been explained by Scentbird and has nothing to do with the scent. You’re review lowers the score for the scent which is unfair to those of us who use them to choose the fragrances.

I am new to Scentbird and I don't think I will be continuing this subscription. Customer service is non existent. You always get some automate email apologizing but I have never had a "live" person respond. My first order was a month late and I have been charged again but have not received product yet. I am sure there are better services than this one. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!

Not just lust, love it!
Hard to decribe, seems true to the listed notes, blends in a seamless smooth scent that is classy and balanced. Powdery, creamy, floral, sweet without being loud, sharp, or over the top. I was worried about how strong the coconut would be. I love Creed Virgin Island Water, which contains a coconut note but doesn't smell heavy, dried or like sunscreen or hair products. This is not similar, but the quality of elegance and sweetness with balanced by some freshness is the same. The darker notes like rum and leather are present, but in such a gentle way that it doesn't overwhelm it all. That a perfume can manage to be floral, fruit, leathery and kind of gourmand while still smelling balanced is truly special.

True Lust
The initial scent on my skin is powdery and somewhat smoky, but given time to work with my own body chemistry it ends less powdery and more sweet through out the day. At the end of the day I can definitely smell the jasmine and sandalwood. I liked this scent and plan to queue more from this brand in the future.

Nice scent, doesn't last
I love the leathery dark scents and this one doesn't disappoint in the complexity of the fragrance. Longevity? Nope. As in 20 minutes later I could only smell a hint of it on my clothing. Unless I feel like applying every half hour, this one is a thumbs down.

Naww, I’m alright
To me this smelled like a mixture of a musty man, and incense. After it dries down the mustiness goes away, but to me it’s not worth it. I wouldn’t buy a bottle of it, and it’s actually more a winter or fall fragrance.

Powdery....
While I was reading the reviews saying this scent was powdery I was hoping it was just a matter of smell being so subjective. It's not /that/ subjective....This has an overwhelming powdery scent. I tried so hard to discern different notes but all I could detect was a freshly opened bottle of baby powder. There is a litttllee floral to it thats nice but its quickly overwhelmed. Not my favorite.

Something Different
Straight from the bottle it smells like baby powder, almost exclusively. However on the skin it comes to life. The leather and rum over power the coconut (for me at least, there are so many variations of a coconut smell that they may have used a more true coconut smell and less of a sweet version). By some miracle the jasmine comes through very very well. If you like the leather, but still want something feminine and floral I would recommend this fragrance.

Not My Favorite!
The notes listed for this scent had me very curious and excited, especially the coconut and rum notes. Unfortunately, the violet/powdery note is very overpowering. In the first hour of wearing this, I kept thinking I smelled like baby shampoo. As it dried down, I started to notice the leather note, which was very nice. I didn't find that it lasted very long, but it was very strong in the first few hours. I also found this to be a VERY feminine scent, and am surprised that it is listed as unisex.

Sexy and Sophisticated
The first nose is powdery and complex. A few moments later it makes my lady bits quiver. Thus would be a super sexy scent for an evening date or selling a product. I felt awkward wearing it around my parents and at a work convention.

I didn’t catch the other notes since the powdery smell is so intense. I asked my husband what he thought and he said it smelled like baby powder. Doesn’t smell bad but not at all what I was expecting. Not for me.

True Lust is sexy and old school glamour....
I LOVE Etat Libre D'Orange (aka ELdO), and own a few of their scents. True Lust is definitely one of their sexier, more glamourous scents...definitely an evening date night 'fume. Think of the back in the day, vintage smell of a woman's lipsticks in a leather bag. Also in her bag is her bottle of scent, maybe a scented silk scarf. I enjoy True Lust very much! Glad to have this in my collection, and would consider a full size bottle if the right sale came along.....

This fragrance is very strong and almost like an old lady perfume when you first spray it. It calms down okay and smells a little better after but it is powdery and I can definitely smell the rum notes in it, almost too much. I might wear it once in a while, but it certainly isn’t my favorite. Won’t get it again.
