Hated it!
Yikes, I was surprised by how much I immediately hated this after reading such glowing reviews here and elsewhere. I wasn’t previously familiar with akigalawood and had to look it up. It’s fractioned patchouli which kind of makes sense based on what I smelled, but honestly this smelled like straight up gerbil shavings or cat litter to me. I was really turned off by it and it’s SUPER strong and long lasting. I could still detect it about 17 hours later. The dry down was the only part that was ok for me when the iris notes developed. I’m going to try it on my husband because he said he didn’t mind the smell. There was nothing remotely feminine about this to me.

Grandma Scent
This one was a huge disappointment. It's not that it just smells like a grandma scent; it smells like what grandma would've worn in the 80s. Reeks of camphor that doesn't ever fade after the dry down. It overpowers every other note. Don't trust the reviews on the brand website.

i'm not big on the girly scents and this baby was right up my alley. most notably, my mom's boyfriend had some feelings about it, it's my mom's boyfriend so im never gonna wear this around him again lol. ps for what it's worth my mom is not an old lady

I wanted unusual but not like this
I have been curious about Etat Libre D’Orange for a while and I wanted to love this fragrance. The first spritz smelled overwhelmingly of citronella or camphor. As it warmed up, it becomes much more complex and pleasant, but remains a bit more astringent than I’d like. I am 25 and I think this fragrance is a bit too “mature” for me, but it has a certain charm and sophistication. It is intriguing and unusual, which is what I wanted from Etat Libre D’Orange, but this fragrance is sadly not for me.

Peppery
This was a unique fragrance. Although not my favorite scent, it was not off-putting. A little too peppery for my taste. It's interesting that I never use black pepper on food and that's the one thing that I don't like about this perfume.

Woodsy and Mysterious
It definitely fits into the category of woodsy and mysterious. It is a little intense as well, but the scent truly did not last 15 minutes on me. The first time I used it, I was so excited and intrigued. It did smell a bit masculine at first which I don't mind, but that quickly faded and unveiled a nice feminine, amber-y side of the fragrance. However, like I said before, it didn't last at all. None of the perfumes I have been getting from Scentbird are long lasting. Needless to say, I don't ever receive comments on my scents because they are gone before anyone can smell them.

Masculine and spicy
I am not one to shy away from woody, semi-masculine scents. I like to wear a range of styles - this one is probably as masculine as I can go. While it does have a cologne vibe, I find it somewhat addictive and intoxicating. My partner and friends have all complimented me for the scent. Smells much stronger and more masculine in the bottle than when it wears on.

I wanted to like it
I really wanted to like this, however the reality did not live up to the expectation. Sadly, the top notes came off overwhelmingly camphor to me and reminded me strongly of Vicks rub. The dry down did improve a bit and a slight floral note did come out after about 20 minutes. It was far too medicinal for me to find truly pleasant.

Euphoric
This is one of those holy grail scents that evokes precious memories, heightens senses, emotionally relaxes and stimulates the mind in a positive way. It opens with a strong plume of Dragon Blood and Nag Champa insence that settles slowly into juicy orange, sweet exotic floral and warm musk. As the very long dry-down settles, spice and heat remain on the skin for hours. I would call this a gender neutral fragrance requiring a bold individual personality to carry off. I'm simply in love with this. My only fear is it appears to be stuck in the case it was shipped in and I may not be able to get it out to replace it with the same scent when this vial is empty!

Not Great
I'm a big fan of ELDO fragrances, but this perfume feels like it should have been given room to mature. There are really interesting elements here, but they are overwhelmed by a milky sweet dampness that would reasonably drive good people to open a window when they smell it. I really want to like it, but also wanted to stop catching whiffs of it on my skin as the day went on.

Akagalawood Goes On and On and On :)
I sprayed this on my skin in 100 degree heat. The opening was somewhat complex with other notes such as the floral and vanilla, however, the Akagalawood had staying power with no signs of letting me down for at last 7 hours. I woke up and I could still smell it slightly the next day. My determining pulse point for all fragrances is between my breasts which retains perfume scents for hours longer than any other place which ensures I am enjoying my Scentbird fragrances all day long.

I opened the top on thia tube and the smell that hit me was earthy in all the wrong ways. The musk smell was overpowering and what might have been a woodsy peppery smell was an assault.

I am so confused ...
Upon first spray, this literally smells like an old hippie. It is woody, earthy and downright dirty. But then, once it’s on the skin, it changes into something else. Sensual. Intriguing. Not quite old hippie or old lady but I’m not sure I could wear it in public without people asking who forgot to take a shower. I will say this... Allure rated it as a top choice for a reason. This is a very complex scent but I think I could wear it for an appropriate occasion. The jury is still out. Definitely not the same in the bottle as on the skin, but definitely for a more daring personality that’s not afraid to wear something outside the box.

This is probably not for everyone, you have to have a particular nose for this. This scent is not my taste at all. This reminds me of what I think a hippie would smell like. Ancient (lol) and like incense. The dry down is a tiny bit nicer and not as strong, but I still don’t like this scent. I thought the vanilla and iris would sweeten it up a bit but not at all. This is not a sexy scent, to me at least, but in general anyways.

Thought I would give it a try
I am on a ELDO binge at the moment, and after receiving and loving I Am Trash and Remarkable People, I figured I would give this one a shot. Not usually what I go for as far as scent profiles, but this house has a way of blending fragrances in such a way that they tend to grow on you the more you wear them. I REALLY wanted to like this perfume, but from the first spray I knew it was not for me. It’s not absolutely terrible, but I dislike the smell of patchouli, and it was so overpowering in this scent. After the dry down, it just reminded me of something an older woman might wear. I will say that the staying power of this fragrance is remarkable- I showered and could still smell it afterwards. So, that’s a plus, but it stops there. Ended up giving it to a coworker!

An amazing fall fragrance from the house of ELDO. The notes of vanilla and neroli hit your nose almost instantaneously. The akigalawood in the dry down is smells simply amazing. Its almost akin to ELDO's Herman A Mes Cotes in my opinion. I highly recommend.

It smells more like for men. When you first open it it has a strong smell that’s not delightful . But after you spray it on and wait like 10 min it calms down the smell . Sorry not a fan of this one
