NOT LIKE ANY BABY I'VE SMELLED?
This fragrance left me totally confused! This is definitely a middle of the road scent for me because I definitely don't hate it...but I'm not totally loving it either. I got absolutely no soapy or soft or powdery notes from this. The website places this in the "Woody" category but I'm definitely not getting that on my skin or with my chemistry. When I first sprayed this on, it definitely felt more feminine and had a light musk quality. I thought it had potential and I can see how several reviewers likened this to JHAG "Not a Perfume" because it certainly falls in that category as far as being a manufactured / chemical-type fragrance. The difference for me is that JHAG felt more feminine and musky in a pleasant way and this scent smells more masculine in the dry down, with more of a green/water accord. (Even though this is all chemicals). I would certainly say this passes as a unisex scent and depending upon your own personal body chemistry, it will change from one extreme to the next. Guys may say it's too feminine and women may say it smells too much like men's cologne. I don't think I'd buy this again because the dry down is smelling more and more like Raid roach spray to me. It's just a very strange scent and I prefer JHAG "Not a Perfume" over this hands down.
Smells like baby wipes in a weirdly good way
This smells like baby wipes a bit as first, be it an expensive and complex baby wipe smell, but as it dries down and sits on the skin for awhile the smell becomes more warm and is a nice subtle daytime fragrance. I don't think I would buy a full size bottle of this but it is pleasant and inoffensive. It is much nicer applied directly to skin than it is applied to clothing.
Has the right notes but
This has the right notes that i like but forsone reason they dont compliment each other like some other perfumes do.
It's hard to describe this, but it smells like a 70s sci-fi movie. Powdery, light, both retro and futuristic.
I love it. It was one of the recommended scants based on what I liked in the past and I definitely didn’t anticipate to like it so much. It’s warm + powdery but definitely not the diaper or soap kind mod powdery lol It could be considered unisex in my opinion. Really like it!
This in Not a Blue Bottle 1.5
I like it! Nice and clean smelling!
A clean powdery smell.
Smelled like soap
It smelled like soap then disappeared on me within twenty minutes. It was pretty soap, but soap.
For the mature
Smells like an older lady would like it. It’s very sweet smelling. Not for me
Everywhere I wear it people ask me what I’m wearing it smells amazing
Spicy but cool
This scent is one of my new favorites
Smells like baby powder
I don’t really like that, but it grows on you. It’s warm and smells like powder.
Love this accent
Love this smell
I did not expect to like it that much - but I do and I am thinking about buying the full bottle.
i loved it!
“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.
It just wasn't for me
I'm sure some people would like it but i didn't
I'm glad I sprayed this on something else and not my self. This smells like baby powder. Not what I want yo go around smelling like!
It’s a little different but smells great, it doesn’t last super long tho
Has Mineral, Floral, Aquatic Notes. It's a clean Scent
It's a light scent. Definitely not a strong scent.
I was hoping for a cleaner, light airy smell. It was heavy and powdery. very mature smell. not my thing.
Not that lasting...
I throughly enjoyed this scent, but it does not last like the others have. You definitely have to apply it again later in the day to keep it noticeable
Always receive questions about this
This scent is nice and clean smelling. I always get compliments and people always ask what I am wearing. Very appropriate for work or every day.
This scent is very exciting and dynamic! Perfect for get together or a serious night of dancing and partying!!!
It smelled like manufactured chemicals - not of nature, not pure. 😣
Not the best
I like the unisex scents a lot but this one was kind of off 🤷🏻♀️
Didnt really like this one
The scent is nice i just did'nt like it for myself
Not what I expected
Doesn't blend well with me.
I picked this because I was intrigued by the unusual scent profile. All I can say is that it’s very light and clean smelling. Great for a hint of scent in the office.
Never would have guessed
This is completely opposite of my usual scent preferences. I am in love with this. So fresh and unique. I will buy a bottle definitely.
Has a familiar scent to me . Fresh and strong enough but not overwhelming .
wasn't my fav
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.
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.
like a fresh, mature? baby powder
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
I love this scent, but it is very easily overpowering. A single spritz is more than enough.
Smells different almost every time I try it.
I ordered this perfume because I love clean, fresh, aquatic scents. This perfume smelled medicinal to me, almost like something you would smell in a hospital.
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?
it's just very artificial smelling which I should've kind of guessed! But the concept was interesting. Not bad smelling but very different!
i ordered this because i read on another website that one of the notes was IMAGINARY FLOWERS.
This is not a blue bottle
Smell is aweful
I selected something else and then this was sent instead. It is disgusting I might cancel now 🥺
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.
My go to perfume
my favorite scent thus far
Loved the smell its great!
to me its between men and women fragrance i loved it!
settles on my skin very well.
Smells like I’m in the clouds I love It
if you remember and liked wearing Armani mania you'll love this. clean slightly powdery but sexy
I didn’t expect it to smell clean but smooth . Lol it’s hard for me describe . But 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!
sorry wrong one
Lovely unique fragrance with light, powder and sea notes. Unlike anything else.
The description was enticing enough for me to order it but I didn't like it at all. It was very mature smelling, maybe just not my preference.
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.
my wife love it, ozonic, saltwater, casual, but could be elegant. awesome smell
gorgeously clean unisex scent. so many compliments from all genders
It reminds me of Juliette Has A Gun's Not A Perfume. It smells very fresh and clean. I like to wear it to work as it's not too strong. Although I wish it lasted a bit longer.
It smelt like baby powder
Test on Skin
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
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.
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.
not for me
all I can pick up is a masculine baby powder :-( I thought this would be great based on the description. but it's the type of scent that will give you a headache if you're prone to that
Favorite so far. I get asked by men & women what I have on when I wear this. Great lasting power and scent projection. Clean. Sexy. Wear it everyday!
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!
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.
Pleasing... A light, easygoing, soothing scent. Can be worn for every occasion every day. This will not make anyone's nose crinkle. Some may even smile.
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.

Based on the description, I thought I'd love this scent. Unfortunately it just doesn't do it for me.

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! 😊

I don't hate it. I like variety good to have just in case. Smells powdery and it's kind of light.
New summer fav!
Outstandingly fresh Summer scent. Very clean and not cloying. Sillage and longevity could be better for the price but it is a very good/unique scent overall.
25 to 34
It's a good smell. Very fresh. More of a once in a while type of fragrance. It you remember the Adidas like of fragrance, this would resemble them.

Lasts a long time but isn't overbearing. Hands down one of my favorite fragrances I've ever tried.

All I can smell is baby powder sadly.

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
Great Spring/Summer Scent
Great scent, lasts a decent amount of time. Reminds me of Thierry Mugler scents
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
