Age: 25 to 34
Skin type: Sensitive
This is a very strong perfume
Kind of smells like an old lady. As the day went on it was better, but ehhhhh.
Don’t really like this at all
Smells like a grandmothers bathroom
It’s... okay. Kind of a weird scent.
Age: 25 to 34
Skin type: Sensitive
Fresh and floral
I love this scent. I wasnt sure about it when I first smelled it, but after spraying it on every time I smell it I like it more.
Age: 25 to 34
Skin type: Combination
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.
Age: 65 or over
Skin type: Dry
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!
Generic as its name
Light aquatic scent. Not much staying power. It's fine, but nothing special. It really is as generic as its name.
Age: 35 to 44
Wasn’t what I thought or expected but I do love the smell of this perfume just wish it was what I thought
I don't like the smell also the bottle leaked.
Clean and refreshing scent!
Absolutely love this scent I wear it when I go out with friends and I always gets asked about it. Love the Sweet floral tones
Smells nice but
Doesn’t last very long
This scent is just awful. It’s such an old lady smell
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 fragrance reminds me a clean fresh floral breeze, very non intrusive just like, Wow you smell incredible ♥️ I immediately fell in love with this scent, every note falls together beautifully
Issey Miyake—- Pew
I wish I could return this !!
I Love This Perfume! I Love the Floral Warm Scent Which is Soft And Not Overpowering.... I Get Complements Everytime I wear it! 💗
I can't do better than the reviewer who said "it smells like an old lady who smokes too much."
Did not like
I did not like this smell at all.
Very light. I like fruity smells so if you’re like me and prefer fruitier smells you won’t like this smell to much.
Smells like an old lady that smokes too much.
Does not stay on long
Scent is nice but dont stay on long. Disappointed
Yuck, Yuck and Yuck. First spray So Strong and over barring. Very old lady sent. Wears off fast, in this case THANK GOODNESS it did. Many years ago I had a bottle of Issey Miyake and loved it. However this is the second bottle I’ve tried on scent bird by Issey Miyake and absolutely did not like. So long Issey Miyake.
I absolutely love this scent!
I usually do not like strong scents but somehow this one is different. It has the right amount of floral that I love.
Did not care for the scent at all. Some fragrances give me headaches and this is one. That's why I do the scent bird so I can try new fragrances without the high cost. I can always give it as a gift.
Literally if I could give this scent 0 stars I would. Searched endlessly for someone who would take it before I threw it in the garbage. Definitely an “older 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.
Just not me
Just not my scent style. seemed a little more old lady-ish
Love this scent
This scent really makes me feel fresh. I have gotten so many compliments with this one. It's floral notes and freshness are head turners for sure.
I think I may have found my signature scent. Finally!
ME TOO! <3 it
Swing and a miss.
I really didn’t care for this one. It is a really earthy scent. Not my thing
I was not impress with this scent at all. Awful smell, Try again scentbird.
i bought a huge bottle at marshalls a couple years ago for super cheap. i liked other Issey scents but this is my fave. i thought it was discontinued so i thought I'd check on Scentbird & here it is yay! Love it so happy i can buy more!
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.
soft smell would buy bigger bottle
Wrong scent sent
The delivery was days late, It ended up being a woman's perfume not a man's cologne not sure what brand but it wasn't what was on the label.
I was not at all please with this fragrance. It's too sweet and floral. It made me sneeze like crazy. I was expecting a nice soft fresh scent.
It smells like a scent for an older woman. Mislead
I’m so upset this is discription is so missleading. This is the 3rd bottle of perfume I have tried from scentbird and I even read It said fresh and clean ,, and citrusy ( bull ) that’s what I say or smells like my grandma simular to white diamonds nasty!!! Old lady perfume perfect for 60s and up not for 30 year olds . So angry I’m gonna try one more scent and if I’m displeased I’m cancling my subscription. So upset ( please give a better discription on them people
I don’t like fruity scents and this is not fruity at all very deep
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.
The scent is so sweet, too much sweet for me. Not a light fragrance as I anticipated based on the description.
I'm not really a fan of this scent. It is light and clean, but it also reminds me of old lady perfume. lol It also doesn't last the entire day so you will have to spray it again later on in the day. Sadly, I probably wouldn't buy it again. :/
Did not like this, and I love all scents issey miyake.
Love it delicate fresh feminine perfume I give it a 10
Just perfect! Clean, floral yet gender neutral
It certainly is 'a scent'...
Too sweet and similar to an Alfred Sung scent.
I don't like it at all and I love this brand. What a disappointment.
I empited the bottle in two weeks. This is a must have! Crisp and fresh. Great for my migraines - no problems.
This scent is so GREAT!!!!... I love it.... not overpowering.... but makes you feel so confident knowing you smell so good.... got nice compliments.
This is such a great scent!!!!! I love it so feminine .... not overpowering but it makes you feel good because you smell great... got great compliments.
I love the scent. I don't know if it's just me , or that maybe I don't use enough ,but the scent fades. ...
I was super excited to get my new scent, and upon opening and spraying it, I LOVED IT! Then after about 2 minutes, I really hated it. There's a scent that's in it that makes me sick to my stomach. After wearing it for an hour I couldn't smell it anymore. I think I will re-gift this one.
I have to loot Lee love the scent! And everyone who smells it comments about it definitely will re-order this fragrance!
I love L'Eu di Issey so I thought I'd try this. It's nice but not as good. I would probably order it again.
I actually used this scent all the way down. I loved it. It is a bit mature and Issey Miyake is known for the "chemical" smell. But I personally like it. His scents are so different. I wore this one all of the time and I received compliments on it.
I felt sick after smelling it. the smell took a long time to wear off
It was an ok scent kinda powerful stayed on all day so I guess that's a good thing!
I was surprised. Because I love Issey Miyake the perfume I was excited to try this one but it was not sweet or soft in any way. Very strong citric which is not good with my body chemistry
i was not impressed with this scent at all. it smelled like it would be more suited for someone in there 60s. def not for me
I must say... I AM IN LOVE!! this scent is so me!
Does not smell like the discription at all, AT ALL. This is not fresh or clean smelling. It's strong and heavy. Can definitely see why this didn't do well for them. Also, I just realized this scent is 20 dollars at Walmart and Scentbird is how much?? .... We're suckers.
Great scent. I have received many compliments on this fragrance. I like citrusy fresh scent and this smells so fresh and clean with a hint of flirty. Highly recommend... ps I don't think it smells like grandmas unless your grandmas perfume game is strong :D
I liked it but it reminds me of my grandmother's perfume so it's not something I could wear often for that reason, I gifted it to a friend.
Smells nothing like the description. Reminds me of a cheap fragrance from Walmart.
The scent wasn't very bad when I put it on although it wasn't my particular type. It doesn't last long at all though.
Not very impressed. The smell was not for me.
Dissatisfied... So far I haven't received any scent that fits the profile that I submitted...😕
Kind of old ladyish. Very strong.
Quite strong but has a nice scent
Did not like this scent AT ALL. It was way too strong and caused my allergies to act up.
A little strong but I works. I like it.
Sorry but this is not Issey Miyake, you guys completely swapped this out for something else. I'm a huge fan of that scent and this is not it AT all. What a huge disappointment seriously.
Not for me. Maybe someone older.
If you like light clean scents then this is not for you. This smell is for someone older. I put it on and smelled like cut grass all day. :-(
Was not pleased with the sent it does not work with my body chemistry,and equally and pleased with the fact that the little spray bottle does not work well.
Was only able to get a small sample of the fragrance due to the spray container not working well. The amount of the fragrance that I did spray on does not work very well with my body chemistry. Want to return it!!!!!!!
Very fresh, floral. I'm not sure if it for me.
Not for me personally. A bit old lady-ish to me
Absolutely love this scent. Fresh, crisp and perfectly unisex. Perfect for all seasons.
It smells like a of soap... Im not impressed 😝 Im sad cuz I was hoping it was gonna be a fav
It's a little strong at first when it settles I'm in love ❤❤❤ my new Favorite date night Scent
I hated it!!!! One pump and it went in the garbage!
Not sure what to think of it... my husband says it smells like soap. Im kinda disappointed, Ive heard good things about this brand. Does the smell get better the longer you wear it, cuz Idk if it is something I can wear all day.
I love everything by issey miyake....thanks
HORRIBLE!!! I literally tried to give it no stars. Smells like a room full of over spritzed 90 year old Grandmas (because Grandma's don't have to be old ;). I sprayed two squirts on my wrist to test it out and my fiance literally made me scrub my arm and then proceeded to air out the room and spray Febreeze. No...just no...lol.
It was horrible. It smelled like grandmas rose water. My dog literally ran away and I'm not making that up.
I never received the scent I would like to know how I speak to someone about it
I loved this scent! It's fresh and clean without being overpowering or too strong.
A nice fragrance for someone else. Not my style though...
It was okay smelled a bit masculine to me though
Did not like this one at all! Very heavy.
This is a darker scent than I expected. The florals are pretty strong. I would probably still wear it for an evening event, but would go easy on the application. It's a little cloying and headache inducing.
Very musky. Too masculine for me.
Definitely not as citrusy or fresh as I expected it would be. Smells a bit heavier than anticipated, but I find it to be a good scent to use for the gym believe it or not.
I love this scent. Very refreshing and last all day.
Im not sure I liked it it's really femanim
Will definitely purchase full size bottle
