Not a good smell for me.
I recently got the other bottle of this that was the natural scents in this set and loved it, so I thought I would try the other end of the spectrum. I can't stand the smell of this. This is literally like sitting behind an elderly couple at church. Strong old lady perfume and a chemically aftershave smell all in one bottle. Be warned this is also VERY strong smelling.

This is Not a Blue Bottle 1.4
It was okay, but it smells a little odd to me. It reminds me of an herb shop mixed with a crafting store. Has an interesting spicy aroma. Might be a seasonal cologne, but not something I would wear most of the time if ever really.

This perfume reminds me of the traditional Aveda small (probably due to the Ylang Ylang) which I love. I enjoyed it.

One of the worst perfumes I’ve ever smelled
I wish I had read the reviews before getting this. Because now I’ve wasted $16 for nothing. I wish you could send things back at least once.

Not for me
On me, the scent was intensely floral. It reminded me of my sister’s perfume choices, so I gave it to her.

Heavy but not overpowering
This is a heavy scent with a lot of depth. It worked best with just one spray, rather than 3 separate pulse points I might use with a lighter fragrance (e.g. fruit or water scents). Everyone I shared the scent with agreed it smells pretty off-putting in the bottle but on the skin it's very nice. There is a musky, almost patchouli or incense-like aroma at first. It's very long-wearing and mellows pleasantly over time. I enjoyed it enough that I would try the companion fragrance, too. I would recommend this for other women in their 40s or 50s as it reminds me of popular scents women wore when I was young.

Woody spice mix
Starts out smelling like mouthwash? with woody, spicy undertones. Luckily the initial medicinal smell dissipates in about 10 min or so, and you're left with just the wood and spice. Should be able to pair with something vanilla and use it up during wintertime... I hope. I tried, I learned. But this was two two-star scents for me this month. Major Bummer.

one note ruined it
On paper this was superb. On my skin, this started out wonderful, unique and different- 15 minutes later.. all i could smell was a super sharp amonia note and that note IS strong -hits my nostrils like i ate a bowl of wasabi. tried to layer it to see if it can be redeemed. the answer is no. i think someone may have the body chemistry for this and it would be fab- but not for me.

Smells sharp and aggressive, like floor cleaner with a floral/fruity overlay. I'm actively mad that a perfume could be this awful.

Uhhh...no.
I appreciate unique scents and prefer perfumes with complexity. This one is definitely both of those but it just doesn’t seem to work. It smells like bug spray and mouthwash with a top note of cinnamon. When it dries down it smells like cheap old Avon cologne.

I love it!
A very unique scent. A little goes a long way! A rich and earthy grounded amber; smoky wood, dark damp soil, sweet resins and hints of cardamom. If a California sunset had a smell this would be it!

Not for everyone
You get a deep and smoky earthness with some dry and complex florals. In other words, It also manages to have a musty or sour woody smell aspect to it too. This is very different, complex and might even offend the casual fragrance person. If you tend to like citruses or normal fragrances, this is not for you. I find this nice and something different for fall and winter.

Smells like a ylang ylang scented Lysol. I usually give fragrances a few try because sometimes it takes a while for me to “get” them and then I end liking or loving them. Not this stink bomb, it’s on its way to the dump as we speak.

Disappointed...
I guess I didn't read the information well enough. I LOVE the original This Is Not A Blue Bottle and was so excited to see it as an option. It's actually why I finally subscribed to Scentbird. This is 1.4, and unfortunately totally different than the original. If you like patchouli, this is the perfume for you. Unfortunately, I'm not a huge fan.

Interesting and pungent
This is an interesting fragrance. Herby and kind of citrusy and bright. Reminds me of crushed leaves from the garden with a lemony brightness (but not true citrus). Not something I will use as a usual go-to, but I am glad that I put it into my queue to experience.

Unique and Bright
Unique cologne, very heavy on the lemon but somehow works. Great for spring.
