Lovely Scent
“Smells like a happy baby”, said my adult daughter when she smelled it. And she’s right! This is just so lovely. Reminds me of massaging my babies with oil after a nice sudsy bath. (All the melanated queens who subscribe will know exactly what I mean). I will add another one of these to my queue since my daughter now owns mine.

Very powdery
I was hoping the overpowering powder notes would fade to something complex and alluring, but they never did. After two hour I had to wash it off. It seemed to only have a single note on my skin.

SUPER powdery
If you like powdery fragrances then this would be amazing. At first it smells like straight up baby powder but after it works into the skin the different notes start to peek out. A very light smelling but strong perfume. One squirt is enough to smell good all day.

very powdery and light. smells clean, but not crispy - it's more of a soft scent. i wish it lasted longer though. even spraying on clothes and hair it seems to fade rapidly

Nice Unique Fragrance
Love the unique scent, but really does remind me of Not A Perfume by Juliette Has A Gun. That being said, both are clean, refreshing and definitely unisex without leaning into too masculine or deteriorating into a floral.

I love Not a Perfume but it doesn't last on me. Is this one long lasting in your opinion? Can you still smell it after 2-3 hours say on your wrists?
Helpful?

This smell is confusing
Honestly- when I got this in the mail I sprayed it and hated it. The powder smell was extremely overwhelming and not my preference at all. I decided to give it a try for work one day just to use up the bottle and after it sat on my skin for a few minutes I actually loved it. I have literally no idea what it smells like, it's like nothing I've ever smelt before but everytime I swear it I can't stop smelling my arm. I can't give it a 5/5 just because the powder is still a little strong for my taste but it's a very sexy, fun, different smell. I love it.

Don’t be too quick to judge this one
I’ll be honest and say I was very disappointed with this one when I first opened it, and smelled it from bottle and sprayed on paper. The first impression is VERY powdery, which I normally hate. I decided to try it on my skin anyway, and was surprised at the difference. This is a fragrance that has to be worn to be truly appreciated. I’m sure it’s not great on everyone, but I absolutely love this on me. It still is fairly powdery at first, but dries down to be very watery/oceanic. And, my husband, whose chief comment about most fragrances is that he doesn’t like them, immediately told me that he loves this one, so that is plus!

Elemental and Fresh
This fragrance has a very fresh and clean sensation to it. Almost feels like a crisp wind blowing down some rocky bluffs. It's got a very unisex vibe to it, very ideal for a workplace or professional setting. Not a very strong or long lasting fragrance, but it's unique and fun to wear when you want to change it up. The notes in the description say "mineral" and "ozonic" which makes much more sense after I got to smell it. I remember reading that wondering what does that even smell like? Curiosity got the best of me, and figured it would be one of those i' d just have to risk and test it out...I ended up loving it the more I wore it, would definitely pick up another vial or a bottle from the retailer when I'm out.

although this fragrance may smell a bit like powder, on skin it takes a different tone. the cologne has levels.. like 3 stages . Everybody who smelled it on paper felt mediocre but loved the smell on my skin

Completely Balanced
I wasn’t expecting to totally love this one but it’s becoming one of my favorites. My husband loves it on me and he rarely comments on my perfumes. It’s a balance between light & feminine and heavy & masculine but somehow they don’t cancel each other out. It’s a like the Yin and Yang of fragrances.

Meh. Didn't move me.
I thought it might have a lighter or more watery smell, considering it's counterpart is so heavy. I don't even know how to classify the scent. It's heavy but not musky.

Pleasantly surprised
From the description I thought I would love this but based on reviews I wasn't so sure. on first impression I got minerals, fresh and powder. I wasn't so sure it would be for me. as the day wore on, it settled, and while I did still pick up the underlying powder I also go the mineral and musk undertones. This one has staying power, is alluring, a bit sophisticated and yet can be worn every day. It isn't my day to day favorite, but definitely one I am reaching for more and more.

Cannot express how much I LOVE this scent
If you're looking for a very unique, fresh, and bold scent, THIS is your go to. It would be unlike anything else that you have in your collection, and it will definitely add range. I cannot emphasize how unique and delightful this scent is. I believe that it's a must-have if you are looking to expand your scent profile.Despite it's Parfum concentration, I would not classify it as overpowering or "heavy." That being said, don't mistake this for being subtle or short-lasting. It's uniqueness makes it very bold and noticeable, while still being pleasant and refreshing. Also, the scent ages beautifully throughout the entire day. This is 1 of only 2 scents that I have bought a full-size bottle of after trying it out in my Scentbird subscription. Cannot emphasize my love of this fragrance enough!

Surprisingly Lovely
I never tried a fragrance that boasted only “artificial” notes, and so I really didn’t know what to expect. This fragrance is a nice burst of freshness, and there is something so lifting about it (probably the aldehydes) that keeps me smelling it all day. It has modest lasting power and sillage, but in this case, that makes it an intimate perfume. My boyfriend kept leaning in on me to smell it. I would buy a bottle once I’ve used this. Definitely worth your try if you are intrigued.

Unique but Very Accessible and Wearable
So the least important thing is what other people think about your perfume, because it's really your self-expression that matters. That said, I have never received so many compliments on how I smell and questions on what perfume I'm wearing! It's actually much lighter than you would expect, and the throw isn't too far but is noticeable for the first little bit that you're wearing it. It's pretty fresh and not heavy. As soon as this bottle is used up I will be purchasing the full size, and I'm looking forward to adding this to my permanent collection.

Not awful, but not for me
I usually adore scents with that sharp, mineral tang to them, but to me, this one smells like baby powder gone wrong. I can't detect the minerals. It's quite heavy, almost cloying. I would have given 1 star, but my son adored it; maybe it just doesn't work with my personal chemistry. To each their own! 😊

Not what I ordered
I loved the original one! I ran out and put it in my order again. And got 1.5. I’m not a fan. It has a very heavy baby powder smell to it with a sight sweetness. I suppose I wouldn’t mind it on a girl but I’m not a fan of it. I will just have to order the original one again and hope then set the right one next time

It's ok
It smells good and is quite loud during the initial 20min, after that it comes down fast. Smells very clean and fresh, then a musky punch hits you during the dry-down. I would probably buy a whole bottle if it just lasted a little longer
