3.5 out of 5
My first scent and I love it! Subtle and sexy. Really makes me happy I started subscribing with Scentbird.
it was a little too old lady for me
almost has a baby powder thing going on, do not dig it but after time it evens out
Not to my tastes
I like it
Smells delicious & as described!
Love love love! The scent was as described & smells wonderful! I'm so looking forward to future fragrances that will arrive!
I like a scent that has more spice. This one is exactly that.
I want more!!
Fits me to the tee
Because it's such a warm scent, I'm not sure if I'm already used to the smell, but it doesn't seem to be super long lasting. Maybe some hacks for long time wear could help.
Pretty, just not my style. At all. The title is pretty decieving
I did not like the perfume
This perfume gave me a bad headache and it made me sick to my stomach. It did not go with my chemistry. I gave the perfume away. I hope I don’t get anymore perfume’s that have that smell, really a bad smell on me.
This scent was/is to me for the much older crowd who like a “stiff” scent
I thought it much more powdery than the description. It was well balanced, I'm not a big fan of powder notes.
I like more of a fruity smell
Just not my scent. Smells a little baby powdery
This was nothing like I was thinking it would be. I gave it away. Too powdery to me!
But the undertone I did like
Should be under oak
very fresh and unique uld buy this perfume again, not too overpowering ...
Wasnt sure at first
Upon first spray I was sure this was too strong, but walked into the cloud and came out smelling like heaven. May consider purchasing.
Just not my style. Kinda of like Victoria secrets older aunt. Sweet. Kind of mature but not quite old lady. Sultry baby powder was another good description. I also found it to be very strong. Not bad overall though.
Not quite what I was looking for. This fragrance does not smell bad AT ALL. Just not what I expected based on the description.
The smell was not pleasant to me.
I reminds me of warm pipe tobacco with a softness about it at the same time. Nostalgic but not old.
I would love to leave a review, but since all I got was a cardboard tube, I cannot. NOT HAPPY AT ALL!!!!!! 😡😡😡😤💔👎👎👎UPDATE: I recieved the perfume, It's not for me, smells like baby soft.
No product, so thanks for sending me packaging. It smells like paper and plastic, awesome!
It has a strong powdery smell that fades into a slight leather smell. I’m not sure how I feel about it to be honest
I liked this one a lot.
Very mature scent
Didn't smell bad, just wasn't for me
More of a mature fragrance
Smells great. Didn't get any compliments on it. But just wasn't my cup of tea.
I can really smell the rum and coconut. Like a Oceanside cocktail on a dark stormy night.
Not amazing, has a fresh, sultry, baby powder scent. Not bad, but not my personal vibe.
Love it! But it just doesn’t last very long for me
The description is exactly spot on. I love it.
I dont like the smell
no it stinks
I love this
This smells so so good! It’s lightly sweet and powerful! It almost smells like a cigar but in a good way
Haven’t used it much
Donor remember it.
Sweet & Dark
It’s a sweet dark scent. It’s not overbearing and lasts a while.
I'm not crazy about this one because it's too powdery for my taste. The longevity is great though.
a little to strong
While it has a powdery finish - it is classy and sexy
I simply liked this one
love this line
i like the etat libre d'orange line. most of the perfumes they have smells good and matches my body chemistry. i always get compliments when i wear their perfumes when i go out. i cant go wrong when choosing their perfumes.
Smells amazing right out of the bottle. Musky, dark. Mysterious. Then after it dries a bit it runs towards the powdery sign. Might pull less powdery with a mans chemistry but ehh. I don't hate it.
The scent lives up to its name
smells like a one night stand...this is so sexy! Strangers tell me I smell incredible.
It doesn't last:(
It smells great but doesn't stay on, it seems watered down like a body spray.
On the sweet side
This surprised me. I don’t love too many sweet scents as the tend to overwhelm my sense, but this was wearable for me. Interesting enough that I couldn’t stop smelling it.
Does not smell like described
Smells overwhelmingly like baby powder
I love, love this!! It is fresh and sassy. Several
Not what I thought it would be. I don't smell the orange at all. Very powdery like baby powder. Then turns to musk.
Lovely scent. Has a bit of a baby powder finish that I wasn't expecting.
I didn't like the smell. But that's okay I didn't see leather in the ingredients and i don't like musky smells.
A miss for me. I am a "perfumista" with over 500 perfumes (if you count decants), so I "get" what this perfume was trying to do. And I know Etat Libre d'Orange is a more challenging brand, which generally I appreciate. But the spices didn't blend well with my body chemistry and wound up smelling rather stale, like old cigarette smoke.
This scent demands attention, but its not loud. This scent smells like a person who means business in a good way
I absolutely love this fragrance! This has become my go-to perfume from now on...no other will do!
The name says it ALL!!!
Yummy, strong, and lasts!
Very soft scent. A scent you can wear everyday and feel that it is not overwhelming.
Gross !! rum smells way to strong and dont like the leather smell either. I dont like anything about it. Had to wash it off i was literally dry heaving from the rum. It doesn't smell feminine at all its so gross.......
45 to 54
Warm Slightly Masculine
Perfect for a date night, not overwhelming. Like sitting in a comfy chair with a rum & coke w/lime.
I like this, it's dusky and sultry
45 to 54
Lousy all around from scent to delivery
The package arrived damaged and leaking everywhere. The scent absolutely stunk up my entire house and was unbelievably strong n overpowering. Hence whybi cancelled my subscription n no longer choose to do business with thiss company. If cant deliver on time n unbroken then get the hell outtacthe business or loo east reimburse ur customers for the inconvenience
A really beautiful Jasmine heavy sexy floral. Not arresting on my but really nice, good lasting power and good opening.
Love this!!! Smells amazing
Too heavy and powdery... not sexy at all!
25 to 34
powdery and old. I got ZERO leather.
Very powdery with leather
This one is almost all powder, with a hint of something citrus that follows for a brief moment. Not my thing. Does die down to a less intense powdery scent that is soft creamy leather. Sadly, another bust from these guys for me though. Have tried some odd and unique scents from them. Still in love with Noel a Balcon, but these guys may be a one-hit-wonder for me.
It doesn't grab me...
The scent when I initially applied it was almost medicinal ...It put me off a bit then dried down quickly to a vague leather scent that is not too pleasant...
Love this and Remarkable People. I think it balances unisex scent really well. It also works if I layer it or on its own
It’s a nice smell, but very strong powdery type scent—reminiscent of baby powder. I couldn’t finish the sample, as it was just too heavy.
Smells nice but not much staying power. Soft and a little powdery but pleasant. Office scent
Scent was too strong
Not what I thought it would be
The scent is more of a teenager’s baby powder perfume from the dollar store!
It smells amazing
35 to 44
When I first opened this and sprayed it on a piece of paper, I was disappointed. The first thing I thought of was baby powder. I sprayed it on my wrist and waited a few minutes, and it wasn’t so bad after all. First note I smelled after spraying it on myself was leather, then I noticed the rum. This scent does have some masculinity to it, but that makes it mysterious for me. The coconut notes are perfect. I would definitely recommend it as a fall/winter fragrance.
45 to 54
True lust not so lusty!
Very powdery doesn't last very long.
Didn't like the smell
Smells like my Grandma’s couch.
I’m not sure why I went with this one since I had a feeling the notes probably wouldn’t work with my chemistry... I should’ve listened to my instincts. Yuck. If jasmine and leather work with your skin, go for it. Otherwise, no thanks.
Baby Powder Nightmate
Smells like old lady and feminine hygiene spray. My 62 year old mother said it “wasn’t bad”.
35 to 44
Love this sent. It's sweet and spicy at the same time. I don't detect any coconut. The scent lasts a long time. It's more of a date night scent but id wear it anywhere.
didnt like it
I wouldnt buy this
25 to 34
Dupe that I’ve been looking for..almost
My signature scent has always been the aromatherapy line’s Jasmine Vanilla from bath and body works. They discontinued it a year or so ago and that was a sad time for me. I have struggled to find a dupe that captures the true essence of what I consider to be a masterpiece by a mall store. Well..this stuff is the closest I have found! It has the powdery notes, the jasmine, etc. but it really lacks the sweet vanilla base that BBW served with their version. The sweetness really helped to cut through the almost cloying powder element. Also, I would say the jasmine notes in this perfume are “dirtier” if that makes sense. It has almost a bitter smell to it after dry down. I really like it- I will wear the sample til it’s gone- but I won’t purchase a full size and hear you me (that’s a thing people say, isn’t it?) I will continue to search for my precious dupe! :)
I like woodsy or patchouli scent and this combines both with a bold aroma. This is my favorite!!!
45 to 54
Love this fragrance
I loved this fragrance. It was warm and rich. Not too feminine.
45 to 54
Not a fan
I did not care for this one, love so many of the others by Etat Libre d'Orange, no to this one though
25 to 34
It smells like baby powder
35 to 44
I love the light fresh scent of the orange! It smells light but crisp.
Orange? I think you reviewed the wrong scent..lol
25 to 34
not too impressed
Doesn't last long but it is a nice scent. BUt just nice. a little bit sultry - goes on strong but calms down.
great combination of scents loved it
35 to 44
Good combination of fruity and floral.
25 to 34
One of my faves
I love this scent!
45 to 54
This is a more of an evening type of scent like going out on the town or out with friends.
35 to 44
The perfume smells really good.
35 to 44
One of my favorites!
When I first put it on, it smells powdery, but once it melds with my own natural scent, it smells amazing! It's the only one that my boyfriend has commented on about how good it smells on me. Guess I need to buy a big bottle of it. LOL
25 to 34
I didn’t like this scent. It smells like something my grandmother would wear.
45 to 54
Like it, don’t love it
I’ve been hating my monthly picks lately,but surprisingly kinda like this. It’s more perfumey than my normal scents(I usually wear Nitro Noir or Montale Chocolate Greedy). I actually like this layered over the Nitro Noir from Kieran NYC, to give it a more grown-up, sexy nighttime vibe
Powdery old lady
Old lady overwelming powerful powder like scent
I love that it is a little stronger fragrance, and it stays with me longer. The scent is also good for me to meditate with. It has a real purpose for me.
This scent is hard to describe, it's a very powdery scent and it's hard to pick up the rum and coconut. I can't smell the coconut at all so it's probably just the rum I'm smelling. It's an OK scent but not for me.
I like it but very powdery
This is a nice scent BUT I was expecting something a little more spicy and not as powdery. Yes, it does smell primarily of a very floral baby powder but I like it just fine. If you are into flowery, powdery scents, then this is the one for you. I like how it smells very clean as well but all I really smell is the strong baby powder smell.
I just got this perfume as my newest subscription and I think it's fairly underrated here. It's definitely something unique! On me, the opening is baby powdery and warmly orange blossom-y which fades fairly quickly into a dark, warm, very spicy and almost incence-y fragrance. I would probably describe this in an original YSL Opium type category. It fades out into sweet yet still spicy woods-y notes, almost cedar like and very crisp. Mysterious and alluring. A good night time, winter scent.
Too Much like Powder
If you like baby powder smell then you will like this but i didn’t care for it.
I would absolutely buy a full size of this. It is not a light floral. The rum lends it a richer tone. Love it. Update: Bought it still love it. So glad i got into this brand. They have some very different options in the market
I think it smells a lot like baby powder, i did not like it at all..
Etat Libre D`Orange~ True Lust
Really love this scent! From the beginning to the end, it smells delicious.
Spicy and sweet
I love this scent. It's dark and subtle, and sexy
Love Most of this Brand but not this one
I LOVE Etat Libre d Orange but not so much this scent. For reference, my favs are Fat Electrician and Remarkable People... both of which are more woodsy, spicy and etc. This is a bit too sweet and floral for me. Beautiful for the more girlie, but not for me.
Wrapped in wings
I love this! It makes me feel wrapped up in Angel feathers.
This is one of my favorite scents this far. It is sexy and elegent, it evokes thoughts of sexy date nights, with a candle light dinner that ends I the bedroom.
Let the spray settle... it’s worth it.
It was a little overwhelming with the first spray but dissipates quickly to a beautiful and simple daily wear. I like this layered with Molinard’s Figue
I'm not sure how all these things blend together because it definitely smells like rum with traces of leather but it also reminds me of baby wipes?
Smells citrus. I love it. I get compliments all the time wearing this a scent
Baby Powder - disappointment
I guess i should have read the reviews first. The description sounded inviting as well did the way the product is described to smell. I tried it on and all anyone could smell was overpowering baby powder. Not sure how the name and ingredients end up smelling like that, but would not suggest wasting money on this fragrance. Just buy some baby powder....
I usually find good in most scents this one is nasty. Don't waste your time.
Loved this smell wish it lasted longer though
I did not care for this scent! It had a very strong powder smell. Way to much for me!
Too much like baby powder
I did not like giants fragrance at all. It smells like very strong baby powder.
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!
It was kind of grandma smelling
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 $$$
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
Oh no! Im scared. I just started my first month....good luck.
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
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.
Having the same problem still haven't receive my order. I received an email stating disregard my last email and that my shipment will be sent out within a couple of weeks couple of weeks added to a month. Promises. .....know problem with scentbird taking my payment,
There is a notice on the website stating that they are relocating their facilities and that there will be delays with shipments.
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!
I am not happy with scentbird at all! Charged me 2 months in a row and when I finally received it 1 was all leaked out! No customer service
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.
Im not happy with the last two minths either.... Been nothin but problems
I have sent many emails NO RESPONSE. I was promised a free scent in August and got nothing.
I am paying for 2 a month and being charged for it -- getting ONE --- I am not a happy camper
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!!!
