Stuck with the scent for a whole month?!?
I was new to ScentBird. Issey Myake was my first scent on my preferences after taking the scent quiz, was truly awful. Wow they were wrong! I wanted to return this right away and get my money back was actually a waste of money! I couldn’t return so I canceled! This is an old person scent don’t recommend!

Not for me
It's a very soft scent, but I'm not sure how else to describe it. I just know I probably won't wear it again. I may even give it to my grandmother, it's more of her type of scent. I like mines with a little sweetness. I love this brand, but not this scent.

Liked it better once it dried down
I thought I would try this one out since I love Issey Miyake Nektar. And I adore Issey Miyake men on my husband. So when I first put this one on, I couldn't believe the sharp note. It was so heavy and smelled like old expired perfume. It took about 30 mins for that sharp note to go away and then it smelled just ok. It lasted a long time, but not my favorite at all. Not sure if I will wear it again, may pass it on.

Not my favorite Issey Miyake Scent
I did get some compliments but it was not my favorite Issey Miyake scent. I have worn multiple Issey Miyake scents but this was one that was unlike I've ever smelled for. It is a scent that I did get compliments about but I don't think I will wear it again.

This perfume has a pretty floral scent with a little spice at the end. Unfortunately, it didn’t last through the day. Even though I’m 52 it still reminds of something an older woman would wear. It’s not for me. For these reasons I could only give it 3 stars!

Quite Nice!
I didn't know what to expect with this one? But I do remember being quite fond of L'eau D'Issey back in my youth. This fragrance evokes the same, clean, light fresh scent of its predecessor without the Oriental notes. The Lemon Verbena note is quite prominent after you get past the horrible alcohol smell that most Eau de Toilette fragrances all have, and why i generally don't like any of them. I had to take away 1 star because this simply doesn't last and would be the main reason why I wouldn't purchase a full bottle of this on my own. However...if this came in a Eau de Parfum version, I might be tempted to buy it. If you like Mrs. Meyer's Lemon Verbena soap, then you'd probably like this!

Layered and musky
This scent has many layers, with an overall musky vibe. My husband loves it, but for me it's a little too aggressive. I tend to like sweeter, lighter scents so if musky is where you lean to, you'd love it.

Green, fresh---gorgeous!!
I've been trying new scents though Scentbird for about 7 months now, and so far, this one is my favorite!! I have the original L'Eau D'Issey fragrance and bath products and it's very pleasant but never grabbed me like this one---I've loved green fragrances like Lauder's "Aliage" and Balmain's "Vent Vert" since the 1970's, but the clean transparency of "A Scent" gives it a living quality--like being in a garden after a spring rain. There is a cool, wet, botanical aura about this fragrance but it also has great style and presence---it's is both organic and elegant and creates an almost zen atmosphere of calm and serenity around the wearer. I absolutely love it!! To quote Marie Condo---it "gives me joy!"

Let it marinate a bit before deciding
This scent is quite the dark horse. I wasn’t excited about it when I first sprayed it. It’s really”green” smelling and quite strong at first. I can see why people say it smells old lady-ish. However, on dry down, it gets complex as you can smell the green morph to light florals mingling with the green and then it just smells of soapy heaven. I couldn’t stop smelling myself! If you’re a fan of clean/soapy scents, definitely give this a whirl. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!

No no no no. Very grandma/old lady-ish, but not powdery. Just like an old lady sitting next to you in church doused in perfume that singes your nose hairs. I might use as a linen spray, but won't wear ever as a perfume. Really don't care for this scent. It's clean not flowery, not really powdery but very much an old woman scent.

This just isn't a scent for me...
I normally like sweet scents with a hint of something dark or devilish about them. I got this scent knowing full well that it was outside my comfort zone, but I wanted to expand my horizons. When you first put this on - it smells like you just walked through a Macys perfume counter area. It's an immediate harsh perfume-y smell. But stay with it for a minute. Because once that first attack is gone, it dries down quickly to something a bit bright - you can smell the verbena and a subtle floral that drifts through. I do smell a hint of honeysuckle, but the other floral scent is beyond me. I have hyacinths outside my front door and this doesn't smell like that - at least not the hyacinths I've smelled. It's fresher than that. Wear time is decent, but it's not a full day wear kind of thing unless you spray more generously than I. I pop two spritzes onto my wrists and it's almost completely gone by lunch. Overall if you like fresh bright smells with a note of florals this might be great for you. For me, it's just not what I'm looking for.

Strong sweet flowery scent
I have mixed feelings about the scent. I LOVED Cannabis and expected a similar scent. When this one arrived I spritz and it was strong for a while .....hours strong. I smell like it until morning. So if you like to keep that just spritzed strong scent go for it. As for me, I got a headache. I did get compliments....but it smells a bit grandma-ish to me.

I almost love this. It's very strong and interesting. I've had bad luck with my past five perfumes and it's made me disappointed, however I got this one and I love it. It's a pleasant surprise. I think it's nice and floral and isn't too 'ooh what is that strange smell?' it's more 'who is that? They smell really nice'. If you've had bad luck like me, I think you should give this a try although I don't believe it lasts as long as I'd like.
