3.8 out of 5
This scent is reminiscent of a spring garden and fresh linens...
I really loved this fresh clean scent. It was perfect for those hot humid days of summer. I felt calm and pulled together. It was a clean scent but the sage gave it a little edge and kept it from being too boring and basic. Very disappointed that the bottle sold out so quickly I really wanted to buy the full size.
Love love love this scent. This is my daily go-to but I'm sad it's out of stock...
Great scent but not my personal favorite
I like this scent but don't love it. It's fresh and light and reminds me of the clean linen smell. The scent didn't last long and it's very mild.
Clean & fresh
I loved this everyday scent. Complimented but never overpowering.
Clean and mellow
This is a delicate, warm, but clean scent. Totally wearable everyday and doesn’t fade too quickly or get overpowering if you get active. A timeless, linen smell - like taking a long nap in a clean bed on a breezy summer day under an open window.
Clean and feminine. Great summer scent
Prefect for everyday
French clary sage
THIS IS THE BEST ONE YET! Lots of compliments on it! It was not available to purchase the full bottle so I had to go else where to purchase.
I had high hopes for something fresh and herbal but this turned into straight Bath and Body Works sour on me.
One of my favs.
Nice clean scent.
Decidedly strange pairing but mild
I suppose it’s all in the scent’s title but I found the execution disappointing. The strongest note that rises to the surface imo is the cotton/linen element, mixed with an unidentifiable floral note. My first thought was that it was bad. I generally try to give a scent a second try and upon further attempts, it’s been a bit more enjoyable especially after a few hours. Great, it’s not a failure but it’s also not winning any awards.
Very clean scent that I still notice over five hours after applying. Linen and citrus notes. Great light summer scent.
Clean and fresh
Clary sage is generally a favorite herbal smell of mine. This fragrance had lots of citrus and linen scent as well, leading it to be a lovely summery scent that smelled so good on my skin. Like others, I found I had to reapply a bit more than other fragrances to keep it fresh, but I didn’t mind that. I got compliments on how I smelled all the time the month I wore this! I will definitely be buying a bottle soon.
Does not last
I love this scent. If only it lasted more than 10 minutes.
This perfume is light and fresh. It doesn't seem to last that long but I don't like perfumes that are over powering. I would give if 4 stars if it lasted a little longer.
I'm enjoying this fragrance. Not quite as green or herbal as I was hoping for. The bergamot is very pronounced so a little more citrusy than I'd hoped but still very nice and fresh. One of those you can spritz on anytime which i love.
Fresh and clean
Love this one. Doesn’t last as long as I’d like it to but it’s fresh and clean smelling. A “green” scent
Pretty good -
Liked this one when I first got it, but eventually lost interest. It's a clean, fresh scent that's good for summer.
Exactly whay i wanted for my first scent! I love the smell! Light enough to wear every day but would be easily used for going out on a date. Love love love!!
Liked this one
It had a nice clean scent to it, but it wasn't as long lasting as I'd like. It made me think of Philosophy's Amazing Grace(? I think that's the fragrance? One of the Philosophy scents at any rate).
Clean, fresh scent
I love this scent. Perfect for the cooler parts of spring. Light, not heavy, doesn't last all day. Smells very "green".
I really like this perfume for an everyday product. It doesn't last all day, but I rarely find clean, light perfumes that do. Great match for my first fragrance, based on the quiz.
Fresh, crisp and clean. It’s exactly what I love to wear.
The scent is nice, very light. But it doesn't last more than a couple of hours.
This is a nice, clean scent. But it's just not "me." The notes are woodsy and aquatic (I normally love aquatic).. it's just a bit of a plain scent to me. Pleasant, but plain.
Fresh & light
I liked this perfume very much. It wasn't overpowering, but it did last. Nice and light.
Didnt last on me
The scent was awesome but it didnt last long on me.
I am totally impressed by this beautiful perfume!!! What a nice surprise of the scent and amount!! It is exactly the kind of perfume I love to wear! So clean and crisp!!!
Beautiful soft scent, but it's gone too soon.
This has potential to be among the top for a fresh, clean, and alluring scent. However, it is far too weak for me. I don't like to walk around smelling like the perfume counter at Sephora or anything, but this one makes me feel like I would need to bathe in it to make it last the day. I love the freshness, the sweet but earthy tones, and the "right after a rain in a field of sage and wildflowers" allure, but I would need it to be a much stronger version to make a full sized purchase.
Nice summer scent
This light scent is great for summer.
I will be back for a full bottle because I will be living in this scent most of the summer. This is what to wear with a sundress and sandals, or your softest tee and favorite jeans. It isn't strong, you won't be walking in a cloud of scent. But you can tell it is made with quality essences. An uncomplicated, clean scent.
Lovely and light
I love this fragrance. It has a light woody scent, and makes you feel lovely and bright! I love to put this on after a nice relaxing shower and go to sleep in it because the scent is warm, inviting and comforting. It has fairly good lasting power, but you may need an extra spritz later in the day. Otherwise...quite charming.
Lisa Hoffman French Clary Sage
Love this scent. Will order more soon. This will be my summer scent. So fresh and clean
I absolutely love this scent! So fresh and makes me happy! I wish I could smell it allll day long.
Love this scent
This scent is so clean and fresh. Perfect for everyday wear especially in the spring and summer. Reminds me a little bit of the Philosophy Amazing Grace perfume.
I really liked this scent. It wasn’t overly strong and it smells very clean.
Love the fresh clean scent of Lisa Hoffman's French Clary Sage. Would purchase it again and again.
It’s okay still wearable
I like it it has a very different smell not one of my favorites but it’s soft smell and last a while
Love love love!
this one is a departure from my usual but absolutely love it! Clean, crisp, intriguing!
Fresh & Interesting, But Doesn't Last
I was pleasantly surprised by this perfume. It is very light and fresh without being too flowery or citrusy. The overall scent is hard to identify, which makes it quite interesting and intriguing. I was, however, disappointed that the scent wore off rather quickly.
Easy but interesting
I like this perfume because it feels very wearable but it is also still pretty interesting. The first sniff has the alcohol combined with the cotton. It wears down to that sage and sea water smell, with some subtle woody tones. This is a great office perfume that is different than more traditional "Coco Mademoiselle" that everyone seems to wear. I'd buy a full bottle of this happily, mostly because it is really wearable, either to the office or a nice weekend "around the house" kind of smell.
Old Lady Flowers and Sea Water
My husband actually told me he hated the way this smells, and he never notices any perfume I am wearing. I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about this fragrance. It is very watery smelling if that makes sense. It smells exactly like you'd expect an east coast seaside to smell but with floral undertones. I didn't get the clary sage at all in this. just old lady flowers and sea water. I am giving it two stars instead of one because it is a 'clean' fragrance because of it's citrus notes and overall it's not offensive in anyway. You could definitely wear this at work or school and have no complaints about offending the nasal passages of your fellow humans. That said I am going to toss this right in the garbage because it's just not me.
French Clary Sage
I was pleasantly surprised with this scent, it's light, herbal and clean smelling and does not project far so, it's great for office wear. Only received 4 stars because it does not have staying power in my 9 hour work day.
Great every day spring scent
Love this scent. It's light and airy. Perfect for spring and every day wear. I simply wish it would last on my skin longer.
So fresh, so clean clean
Super fresh aquatic notes with a hint of herbs. Nice clean scent.
My new favorite!
I have worn this everywhere since it arrived! It is clean, fresh, not flowery or powdery (which I hate), and lasted longer than I expected. Will be adding this one to my list again :)
Clean fresh scent that I enjoyed at first. After short time wearing became muted and faded quickly.
Not flowery. Perfect for casual wear. Reminds me of summertime and strolls through the park. This is a clean, grassy fragrance, just what I was looking for!
A very light fresh spring smell with just a hint of Floral Little ,Citrus and very clean
doesn't last more than 5 minutes
Smell is very clean but as stated in the title, it does not last for more than 5 minutes.
One of my favorites so far
This has a clean crisp unique scent. Not one person who's smelled it has said anything but how great it smells. I recommend it to anyone.
Fresh but quickly fades
The scent is light, fresh, and refreshing. I have it sitting at my desk at work for a quick pick-me-up spritz in the afternoon. Because the scent is not overly assertive, it does not clash with anything I might have put on in the morning. But, because the scent is not overly assertive, it is easy to miss, and it fades quickly.
Nice and Simple
A nice and refreshing scent, however it doesn't last very long. I spritz 3 on my neck and two on my wrists, and by the end of the day the scent is pretty faded. It's not too overbearing, which I like. Just wish it lasted longer.
French clary sage
I was hoping for more frangance. It’s nice but, doesn’t last long.
It doesn’t last very long and smells a bit too much like a cleaning product but perhaps it’s just not for me.
French Clary Sage
It barely smells and doesn't last not more than 5 minutes and wears off.
Fresh and clean
This scent is very clean smelling. It reminds me of Rain kissed leaves from bath and body
I really liked Clary Sage. It was fresh, yet still accessible for the winter months. The only thing is that it wears off quickly. I guess that means you just have to buy more.
Light scent but not for me
Didnt love it. Light scent.
Reminded me of light perfumes I wore in grade school- clean and fresh. Scent seemed to wear off quickly, needed a lot to be noticed. Didn't hate it but had no wow factor
This is a light fragrance, not bad. but smells like something you can get at BBW or Macy’s.
Absolutely love this fragrance. Just in time for spring.
Has a nice clean scent to it but it doesn’t last long....
clean, fresh smell
I really love this scent. I just wish it were a little longer-lasting.
Light and Fresh
Very pleasant, light, fresh and clean. Smells like fresh air with a squirt of citrus and finished off with a tiny little hint of lavender. Its too light to wear right now in a Michigan winter but will be perfect for hot summer days. Very nice.
Clean Floral Scent
Clean floral scent, reminds me of spring and summer. A must if you love the smell of clean cotton and floral together.
Not my fave.
It smells like bug spray.
Love this sent!
Long lasting, professional smelling.
Fresh and clean
I don't know if this is exactly what I was expecting but I do like it. It has a nice fresh clean smell to it. I don't really smell the sandalwood though.
This scent is quite strong, just one spritz seemed too overwhelming for me. Very feminine scent, great for date night out.
Not what I was expecting - but a really unique scent! Herb-y and soft. It is very strong when first spraying it, but the scent dies down quickly. Not over powering, which I think is great for work places or for when you are around others who are sensitive to strong perfumes
I love this one. I can't stop wearing it long enough to review the other 2 I got this month. It's floral and fresh but the sandalwood gives it another layer so it's not a perfume my mom wears. I would wear this every day, every where - even when I'm bumming around at home and even to work out because I want to smell it all the time. I think I'd wear this on a night out with my girlfriends but on a date with my husband I'd wear something a little spicier/muskier. That's the only time I'd switch. Great pick!
Fave so far!
I love clean light scents, and the sage in this one makes it very unique. It reminds me a bit of Greece and a bit of New England in the summer. It smells absolutely awful upon first spraying, like Lysol, but after a few minutes it mellows into a sophisticated soft aquatic scent that I find intoxicating. It actually lasts a long time, it's just extremely subtle.
Smells very fresh and isn't so overpowering that you feel sick. However, it may be too light for people who prefer stronger scents.
Not for me
This perfume is too earthy smelling to me and has a household cleaner smell to it.
I love the scent. It is clean, fresh, and lovely...it is one of my favorites.
French Clary Sage
Love love love!! It’s clean, aquatic & lasts all day! So far this one is my absolute favorite scent!
Didn't care for it
Wasn't what I was expecting based on the description and other reviews.
Not my favorite. It didn't smell very good. Not at all what i was excpecting based on the description.
I was not pleased with that fragrance at all. It did not linger on my body. It did not make me feel as if I was in love or at least like. It made me desire to go and take a hot shower. Please, do not send it to me again and remove it from my selection. I gave it to my daughter and maybe she will have better luck with it!!!
I was very disappointed. I sprayed the perfume and the scent lasted on my body for at least 20 minutes. If I am going to wear perfume....I want it to last at least a few hours. The scent is very nice but I would not recommend.
I loooovvveeee this scent. Light and fresh with shuttle sweetness...really impressed me. A new must-have! Im considering choosing this for all of samples!
Not a huge fan of this one. My favorite so far is Black Orchid so I'm looking for something like that and this is so earthy and not very feminine at all. In fact I found it a little awkward and do not recommend to anyone who may be a fan of Clinique's happy heart
Loved this scent. It made me feel fresh and summery
This was the first fragrance that I received from Scentbird - back in March - and it's still one of my favorites. There are but a few drops left in my tube. It is a very fresh, clean fragrance that is quite natural smelling. There isn't much throw, so it won't bother people who are sensitive to perfumes. I work in a fine dining restaurant and have always avoided fragrances if/when I am working on the floor as I don't want to disrupt the aromas and ambiance of a table. This is different and great to wear on days we have events. It keeps me feeling fresh & confident without overpowering me or anyone else with a perfume. I find it quite invigorating, which is odd to me as clary sage (the plant/essential oil) is a very relaxing and calming scent.
I love the fresh airy scent of this when first sprayed but as it dries down, there is a strange scent that I’m not a fan of. Could just be my how it dries down on my skin. It’s also not long-lasting at all. The scent is totally gone in 2-3 hours.
This perfume is lite crisp and very fresh. It reminds me of fresh laundry when you just take it out the dryer. You want to bury your face in it and just smell the deliciousness.
Very fresh and natural smelling.
i really don't like it at first but once it drys down its ok
with an update
I love the fresh woodsy smell of this perfume, it stays all day and molds with my personal body scent well. I get many compliments when I wear this at work. It almost has a vanilla scent to it by the end of the day, but I like it. update: The more I wore this, the more I liked it less. It's not an everyday scent and can turn way too sweet sometimes.
My first fragrance and I am in love with it! Very fresh and clean smelling.
Love it. It's sharp and fresh. Has a sharp almost licorice and citrus smell that fades into an herbal lighter smell. It lightens up fast but it lingers well on me. It's a scent that I don't feel is really dated.
This is a wonderful summer fragrance. Smells like sunscreen, but a pleasant one with many other notes. Finally something light and sweet vs overly "perfumey." Will look into buying a full bottle!
How to describe this scent? It's so unique! This was the experience I was looking for with scentbird. This morphing perfume hits the skin with a licorice scent mixed with ocean citrus and the lightest touch of a white light crisp musk. After about an hour this scent melts into your skin with your natural oils and creates this warm, summery, natural scent that drives me crazy. I like this perfume a lot. It's complex, sexy, evocative, and flirty. Only draw back is I am the only one who can smell it.... but when alone with the hubs that's a good thing! :::wink wink:::
First let me start off by saying how good this perfume smells. It has a very unique, fresh scentl to it. It would be my favorite except for the fact that it does not stay on long at all. I mean barely a lingering scent after an hour.
Love this scent, it's clean crisp and fresh. This doesn't overpower your sense with a heavy fragrance. Scent lasts a long time, big plus.
Love it. Clean and fresh. Feels like I've walked through my garden.
I really liked this. Fresh! Doesn't last long though
Adore this scent so much! It is the perfect blend of floral and aquatic, it's lovely. Unfortunately it doesn't last too long on my skin, but I truly do love this one.
This is a very unique scent. Kind of old fashioned, yet modern. Not for the younger crowd probably. I consider it classic and clean. Stays fragrant for hours.
This is my favorite perfume ever! :D
[I like light, clean, flowery scents...] Love it!!
I really like this one. At first spray, I wasn't so sure but it mellowed into a great scent. I am going to get this one again.
OMG Love this scent, I wasn't expecting to love it so much but it smells like the forest and the ocean at the same time. love love love.
Smells light and fresh but doesn't last long but we'll worth it its a 5
My new favorite!! this perfume is sooo clean and fresh! Has good staying power too. i will be buying this again. Lisa Hoffman perfumes are great. i hope you dont discontinue her line.
it was on okay nothing spectacular. won't purchase again
Very fresh with a nice woodsy follow up. Not long lasting, which is a shame because I love the fragrance so much.
I really loved the freshness of this fragrance. It also delivers a really nice punch of scent when you first put it on, especially if it's paired with a compatible lotion scent. However, it does tend to wear off fairly quickly. At first I was concerned it was just my getting used to the fragrance, but after asking a few coworkers & family members to smell me - it wasn't THAT awkward I promise - I was able to determine that the scent had simply run its course. I usually don't have this type of longevity issue with my body composition/fragrance reaction, but it is possible that this perfume simply doesn't last long on me and could last much longer on you. The first thing to remember in fragrance shopping is that we each have our own individual body composition and everything smells/wears differently on each of us.
Did not care for it. Slight medicinal/acrid scent
It smells somewhat old ladyish
Very fresh and feminine. Smells expensive.
THIS PERFUME MAN. It is so light, soft, and not overpowering at all. It has an earthy smell and reminds me of my adventures in nature during warmer weather. I love it. ♡
Light scent...non floral / scent doesn't last
Very nice scent - clean and citrusy smell
Love the earthy fresh smell of this fragrance. It comes on strong, but settles into a very organic scent. I really like this, my favorite remains the Clean Cotton Reserve, which I've just been notified Scentbird is no longer offering....boo hoo!
I love this fragrance! It's so clean and fresh; you have to try it. <3
I did not really like this one.
Might be the sage, I'm not sure, that makes me dislike this scent.
I thought that I would like this but was disappointed. I wasn't " herby" at all. Just another sweet flowery scent. It kind of smelled like a cheap body spray and had absolutely no staying power.
Fresh and clean, outdoorsy feminine scent. Not flowery or powdery.
This is my favorite so far. I was a little nervous, expecting it to be an overwhelming sage smell, but it's VERY light. The scent is very clean and light. Most perfumes burn the back of my throat and don't mix well with my body chemistry, but this is perfect for me.
I thought it was nice, if a little too "grandma" for me.
I loved this fragrance ! Reminded me of a slightly more mature version of Bath and Body Works retired green clover and aloe scent that I've been searching for.
This scent is lovely and super fresh. It's more of a body spray then a perfume. I have only had it a few days and it's almost gone. The scent fades quickly. You're better off to use it straight out of the shower than to spray over clothes. I would have given 5 stars if it lasted longer.
What a beautiful fragrance. Its summery light yet deep and sensual. I'm in love!
This was unique and fresh. I love wearing this scent . It isn't over powering and wont choke the room. Something I like to wear during the day
Light scent. Not overwhelming but I am not sure others can smell it on me.
This was far too sweet for my liking. As soon as it arrived it sprayed on a little and it brought me up short. It is too sweet and too powdery. I tried it again a few weeks later and didn't like it any better.
Fresh and clean - good for this humid first month of summer!
I really like this while it lasts. Although it's linear with very little development during dry-down, it's clean and refreshing, so I don't mind the simplicity. However, I sprayed this on pretty generously at about 10:00 am, and now (2:00 pm), it's totally gone. And it's not just that I got used to it. No one else can smell it on me, either.
Nice but no staying power
This is a clean, green scent, maybe a little spicy on first application. It's nice, but it's a basic green scent, not very distinguished. Clary sage, the plant has a unique aroma. I was expecting something more woody or herbaceous. Also it has no staying power at all -- twenty minutes after I apply it, it's gone. I like it, but not well enough to buy any more.
This is a light fragrance, perfect for spring. It is very clean and refreshing and makes me think of being fresh from a shower. The sage is light and not overpowering and throughout the day I will get a whiff of it as I move and I like it when you smell your own perfume and think - Ooo - I like that - oh wait - that is me!
I LOVE this perfume!! I sprayed it on at 10am, and by 7pm, I can still smell it. It smells very clean and a bit gardeny (spelling), due to the sage. I am a outdoors person and I adore this scent.
I liked it OK. Not my favorite, but I do like sage, so those notes are good.
I really enjoyed the freshness of this. Just the right combo of flowery, sweet, and clean. But i do agree with other reviews it does not last long, after about 5-6 hours it is pretty much nonexistent.
normally, I don't go for anything aquatic as it usually reminds me of toilet fresheners. But this perfume doesnt, it's very flowery on my skin, basically, all I can smell is fresia and just a touch of sandalwood. i like it after an hour or so, when fresia is almost gone and it smells sweet but not victoria's secret sweet. it's a great scent for rainy summer days at the resort
Smells like lemons its fresh pleasant but no staying power whatsoever..seems like all samples I've tried don't last...this is my first one from here...love the container the sample comes in !!! I've read somewhere to apply a little Vaseline and spray fragrance on it to make fragrance last longer....more and more I'm loving solid perfumes
