Forest in Thailand.
Absolutely loved this fragrance... This will take you for a walk through the agarwood forest in Thailand.. Clean pleasant and not at all overpowering... This is definitely one to keep !

Love the complex fresh scent
This one snuck up on me. And now is a favorite. It?s fresh and floral and woody at same time. I really enjoy the smell and smile while I?m wearing it.

Spicy, but not heavy
I liked the woody smell, and it wasn't as heavy as the Malin & Goetz Cannabis. There's a singular note that runs through it - it's the name, after all - but it's not simple or uncomplicated. It reminds me a little of incense, but the best incense that you smell when you travel overseas. I love this one. I'd call this unisex.

Fresh and spicy
Fresh, spicy and aromatic on first spray. Then I catch citrus, mellowing down to a slight woodsy scent. I like it! Great for spring time.

Not for everyone.
It's Lemony Spice! That's the best way I can describe it. It stays on for about 4 hours and then you'll need to refresh it. It was not one of my favorites. I don't know if a man would have better luck with this fragrance. Sorry :(

Wasn't too sure at first..
I wasn't sure I liked this scent at first. It was extremely strong when I first put it on, but once I aired out I actually really liked it. It's very woody and even after hours have gone by, I could still smell it on me. I loved it! It's very different and not what I was expecting at all, but I'm actually surprised with how much I like it. My boyfriend is a fan of it too ?

Very sweet, then very green :(
I did not care for this fragrance. I thought I would as I love woody, spicy scents. However, this one was at first extremely sweet (not flowery sweet though, more a candy like sweetness). It did die down to a very green scent fairly quickly. The green grassy scent is ok but nothing special. Shortly after you smell the green, the scent goes away completely. Not a favorite.

Not a woman's scent...
I really didn't mind the smell, even liked it on my husband, but this is definitely not a woman's scent at all. Very masculine, like smelling the inside of a wooden box. I like androgynous, but this perfume went complete;y overboard. It's a masculine fragrance, very tough men fragrance.

I tried to wear it twice
This perfume is not what I expected. I like musky earthy scents but there's some added elements to it that I can't quite handle. It's a relatively strong scent. Possibly if I were to go out for the evening I might wear it. But it definitely does not seem like an everyday type of perfume.

Possibly unisex?
This perfume is very woodsy, with an almost spicy undertone over earthiness. It actually reminds me a lot of an old, favorite perfume oil I used to buy from Lotions and Potions at the mall, called Earth. I love this fragrance, but a little goes a long way. The first time I tried it, I think I sprayed too much on a concentrated spot, and it left me a little headachy. I haven't repeated that mistake, and it hasn't given me anymore headaches. Earthy, woody, musky... I think it'd work just as well for men as it does for women. It's really lovely.

I don't hate it, but I'm not sure I like it, either. It has a very heavy lemongrass overtone - almost too "Pledge Furniture Polish" smelling, honestly. It does mellow out after awhile, but it certainly won't be getting much use from me.

I like this fragrance a lot. It starts off smelling deep & clean like cedar & citrus but then it starts to mellow out after time and has a softer powdery scent with just a hint of musk. It's definitely a scent that is perfect for summer & autumn and pretty much any occasion.

Not my favorite scent, but I also am very partial to very sweet light scents and this was definitely musky. Whenever I first put it on I always dislike it, but after it mingles with my body it does become a very "familiar" scent to me. Not sure what memory it is bringing back, but it always feels like it's on the tip of my tongue. If you want something that isn't gender specific and has a sharp scent, this is it

this is a very masculine scent, musky and sweet. My hubby kept asking me why I was wearing "his" SPICEBOMB cologne. I told him it was my new perfume, he said PLEASE DON'T WEAR IT AGAIN. LOL!! :-) It's definitely spicy which is not bad for some people, just a little too heavy on the musk scent for me.

This is the first review I've written after 10 months of receiving perfumes. I have had some very nice fragrances but this Japanese Agarwood by Lisa Hoffman captured an essence of "Me" that just instantly connected me to the beauty of a pure natural transcended state! I have searched and searched for that sensual blending of nature and this is it. I just ordered the rest of Lisa Hoffman's fragrances because in reading about each one I know they will bring a whole new sensual experience to me. If you want a different angle on fragrance give Japanese Agarwood a try. I haven't worn it out yet but then I wear perfume for "Me" not for what others think! This just made my day!

This smells very good but isn't what I was expecting at all. It's not for me. The citrus almost works against the heavy incense to create a fragrance that's very green in many ways. It definitely leans a little too masculine for comfort in a humid climate.

I really had high hopes that this would be a slightly light, agarwood scent, but there really is no oud smell to it, as far as I can detect. It smells mostly of pink pepper and maybe a little something sweet at the end. I would classify it as a sharp, fresh, peppery scent, which didn't work for me, as I was looking for a heavier scent.

I have been with Scentbird for about 5 months now and so far this is my favorite scent yet... It's very unique!!! When you first use it, there is a fresh clean citrus smell. As the product matures on your skin, a woodsy scent begins to bloom. I think this is a sexy scent and not for the timid. It's bold and confident too. I am tempted on getting the full size bottle!
