Wanted more wood and smoke
I think all these perfumes smell way too feminine for the scent profiles in the description. It’s really annoying.

Not bad, not good.
This was a pleasant scent, just not as expected, or described. I didnt get a very "book" or " library" scent as many others did, instead I smelled spices, especially clove. Not that it was unpleasant just different for me. The scent also didnt last long once i sprayed it on, it kinda just fizzled out after an hour or so. Again nice smell, just wanted more

Actually brought back memories of the late 60's
When I first spray it on, it is a bit too sweet, with a slightly medicinal smell. On drydown, it is fabulous! Not too overpowering, and a faint memory of the fragrance is still thwre at the end of the day.

Not what I was expecting
I was a little nervous about this choice. I picked it because of the chocolate and clove notes. However I'm not a huge fan of patchouli so I really didn't know what to expect. The first spray smelled heavily of patchouli and I was extremely disappointed. It was the only thing I could smell for the first few minutes. As it dries, the smell of the rose and the peach really comes to the forefront. The notes of clove and chocolate never surfaced for me. So, I like it because I love roses and peaches but I really wanted that chocolate-clove smell. I don't understand the people who got leather and cognac at all. It's very fruity floral.

Overall I liked it...has a strangely comforting quality I greatly enjoyed. Didn't really notice it too much throughout the day, but when I did it was nice.
Would buy a full size, if I already had every other scent I wanted.

Historically Elegant
Reminiscent of evening strolls in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Crisp yet Smokey and elegantly mysterious. Mystically enchanting!

Very Unique
The fragrance opens with a blast of pachouli and I worried at first that it would be too masculine, but immediately the spicy scents of clove and chocolate start to unfold. Behind that, the peach note develops, and the dry-down finishes with a soft, warm rose with what I believe is the cardamom rounding it out. This is definitely not a hippy scent, and is hard for me to classify--maybe a bit mysterious? It does seem like a scent from the past, but not old fashioned, which is unique. It lasts 5+ hours on me, and is intense for the first 2 hours before becoming more subtly floral and soft.

Too clove-y
Smelling straight from the bottle, it reminded me of a medical ointment (think ben-gay). Scent mellows out a bit and softens on the skin. Still, the main scent I'm getting is just smoky clove, like the cigarettes goths smoke. Not for me.

Grandma’s Purse mixed with Deep Woods Off
I waited in anticipation for this - I changed my que last minute from “Light Blue” to this... 😞 Not for me in the slightest - and with it being unisex I thought maybe my hubby would like it for himself. He spritzed it and asked why I would want him to smell like “a mix of granny’s purse found at a flea market and bug spray?” I the scent profile is right on - but not in the whimsical, earthy way I thought. This is why I ❤️ Scentbird - I get to try scents without financial regret.

Campfire & Warm Sweaters
This is my first scent delivery, and I’m quite thrilled that the description was so accurate. I walked around the house asking random children and adults to smell me upon arrival, and it seemed to be pleasing to most, although my daughter claims I should spray my mouth because I had coffee breath. My partner didn’t notice the difference between this and my $13 Pacifica (full bottle), so I can’t say I’d buy it again but it is pretty and a little sexy.

Much more masculine than the notes would indicate
This definitely has a lot of bitter dark chocolate, but the other notes tend hard toward the masculine given the introduction of clove. It is almost smoky.

Astringent?
The opening is very astringent-like. Maybe too much alcohol? Then it turns I think spicy, but not in a good away. It was somewhat pleasant once, but all in all I didn’t like it. Montale’s Aoud forest reminded me of this scent.

Psychedelic spice
The scent from the bottle almost turned me off but Histores de Parfum has sold me on another scent of theirs. This is an adaptive cologne. On me it’s almost peachy, with spicey and earthy undertones that compliment the fruity aroma. On my little brother it is more cedar wood and citrus dominant. So this scent may not work with your chemistry all that well but you won’t know until you try.

I shouldn't have picked this one, very prominent rose
Draws inspiration from 1969, so the fragrance has a "dusty" quality to it & the "dirty" patchouli that was closely associated with hippies. I don't mind either of those things, my issue is the rose. I don't normally like rose & this has lots of it. If I spray it from a distance it's okay. I like it more after it dries down but I'm still a bit disappointed with this one.
