Doesn’t smell great on me
I was hoping for a hippie, patchouli scent but I didn’t get that at all on me. I smell peach but no coffee or chocolate. Not something I would buy.

The Best I've Received so Far
Dark, reserved, sensual, perfectly unisex. Doesn't last too long after the initial punch. On me, the dark chocolate notes really come through.

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.

It smells like leather bound books and rich mahogany with some fine aged whisky thrown in. It's warm and masculine. It smells like sex with 70s-80s Burt Reynolds. I don't know how else to describe it. This is my new favorite perfume. I'm thoroughly obsessed.

This is probably not for everyone, but fortune favors the bold. I absolutely loved this from the first whiff of it. I'll be purchasing a full bottle very soon. It's so unique, so strident; it bursts into your consciousness. I have a new favorite and it is 1969.

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.

An Unexpectedly Genius Scent
This scent pleases my husband and me both! It is unexpectedly bold and a vibrant scent that is not for the shy at heart. I’d recommend this as a date night scent for him or maybe an everyday scent for her. It’s a truly unisex scent that goes above and beyond expectations. Bring your A-game with this scent, and prepare to be noticed!
