Dark Purple is like biting into a ripe, cold plum plucked from a small, ice cube filled bowl. The opening?s mouthwatering rush of fleshy, wet plums and oranges fades into cool, snowstorm fresh geranium paired with powder-dry roses and sharp patchouli. Bright nuances of woods and musk anchor the base.

I love this scent
This scent smells like fresh linen and it?s a pretty strong at first but then it gradually fades out into a smell that just lingers around your clothes all day! I recommend for summer or on days you just want to feels fresh.

Strong but I?m in love. Unfortunately it gave my boss a headache, and I really like my boss. But I love it sooooo much I?ll just wear it on the weekend . I can?t really describe this scent. It makes me feel sexy. Just enough sweet with some spice

Dusty Rose
You've read a million reviews that say a perfume smells like a grandmother. Well I'm here to tell you that this "perfume" smells like my grandmother's bathroom. Yes, her bathroom. The only "note" I get from this is old, dusty, rose soap that's been sitting around since the 50's. I love all of the other notes mentioned in the description and in others' reviews, but I can't detect a single one of them. This is the first time I've felt like I just threw $15 away.

This is the perfect mix of fruity with just a little musky dark scent. The only thing I?d say goes against this is that it doesn?t have much staying power. But overall I was pleasantly surprised at how much i love this perfume!

Strong and Spicy
It's not an awful scent, but it is very strong and can be very off putting for someone very sensitive to smells. For that, it definitely should not be an everyday scent. Good for after workout or going out at night

It's very over powering. One spray could last a few days. I ended up passing it on to my mother. It's definitely for an older woman. The rose smell is way to much.

Dark purple
1st of all purple is my favorite color. When I sprayed the perfume it was a very sultry and fruity mix. I love it! Very unique in my opinion and will be worn on cold & rainy days.

Unique
Very unique smell and not for everyone. I like it, because it's unlike anything I've ever smelled. It's musky, it's fruity, it's strong, slightly overpowering and lingers around for a long time. Would recommend if you want something different.

I quite like this fragrance, but I could see how its not for everyone. It is a very strong fragrance, not for daily wear or for work at an office. 1-2 sprays will last you all day. If you like roses ,woody notes, and strong scents than give this fragrance a try.

I absolutely LOVED this fragrance! It was very very intense so its definitely not for everyday wear however it is definitely one that someone will notice. I don't think i have ever had a perfume before that you could follow the change of scent through the dry down as much as this one. I was super impressed, cant wait to try more from this brand.

This is a strong scent that lasts all day. I like a sultry scent so this works well for me. This scent is not for everyone & I think it's a little too heavy for warmer weather. The scent that lingers for me is the patchouli & rose. Normally not a fan of rose but mixed with the patchouli & musk makes a great scent for a mature, confident woman.

This one opens with a blast of red currant berry and amber, then it fades to a nice plumy-jasmine, still with a strong amber note. Once it finally dries down on my skin, all I get is a strong rose and red currant. Its nice, but I think I would've liked it better as a candle. Its biggest down fall is the sharp chemical smell that you get with the rose and amber, especially when it's still wet on the skin. Unfortunately, that sharp smell usually means too many cheap synthetic fragrance oils were used, and weren't balanced out with enough real ingredients.

This is a very strong scent! Normally i like strong scents, but this one stinks. It is very harsh. Almost has a burnt smell to it. I sprayed it twice on one wrist & that was hours ago, i can still smell it very strongly. After the burnt smell dies down there is almost a baby powder or light flower smell. So glad i was able to test it first!

This is a really strong perfume, can really smell the fruit at the beginning. To me, (I'm 30 years old) has a more mature smell to it, reminds me of a posh older lady. I also don't care for the base smell that lingers on my skin, it makes me smell like a black walnut tree. I will say that it does last a long time, it's just not for me.

I got a sample of this in my Birchbox a long time ago and I remember absolutely loving it but...I could not stand it this time around. It was so strong it gave me a headache (and I?m not particularly scent-sensitive) and it was a bad strong, almost alcohol-y, I could tell it had some really nice undertones but they never came through. Hopefully next month will be better!

I was pretty hesitant to try this scent after reading reviews about how strong it is but went ahead with it because it's called Dark Purple. I wish I could say I loved it. The issue specifically with me is, I cannot smell it! My brain cannot pick up these notes and I'm pretty letdown over that because everyone (men and women) compliment me all the time on how good it smells. I just wish I could experience it for myself! I'm giving this a 4 because everyone else seems to love it.

Either this perfume was adversely affected by shipping in hot weather or it smells nothing at all like the notes described. Very cheap floral "Avon-like" were overwhelming and it dried down to a vaguely fruity body wash smell. Also tested it on paper and pretty much came up with the same thing.

I really wanted to like it, because I love musk and patchouli. Something about it is smells smokey to me. It is also quite strong, so I would not consider this office appropriate or something for a first date. I liked the tiny hint of floral to it. The scent definitely matches the bottle and does remind me of the color purple!

I chose Montale Dark Purple as my first scentbird fragrance. I found the fragrance to be a dark berry vampy type scent. The fragrance seemed a bit strong at first spray but as it layed on my skin for bit I loved it. I loved the fact that I could smell it throughout my day. I am glad I chose this fragrance and will give this one another try. If you love Tom Ford's Black Orchid or Tom Ford's Velvet Orchid then give this one a try. I think you can't go wrong with this fragrance, but that's just my opinion.

Dark Purple is very deep, alluring and sensual. It beckons to your senses and causes you to inhale deeply as it wears throughout the day. For me, it wears really well, and it lasts throughout the day. Also, it is strong initially, however, not so strong that it could induce headaches or become overbearing. I definitely recommend this amazing scent to anyone considering themselves "Grown & Sexy"
