Didn't Mix Well
I tried to make this scent work with my body chemistry but it was a no go. I've never smelled it in store or on someone else so I really am perplexed as to what the scent is.

Smells cheap
I didn't like this one at all. It smelled like a cheap perfume that an old lady wears. I'm very disappointed since it was the first one that was sent out from the quiz results. I changed up my entire queue after receiving this on. No way!

Didn't like at first but then...
I didn't like this scent at first because it came off smelling like an old lady just smelling the bottle. However, I sprayed my wrist and it was like angels sang! What a great scent that lasts and if you happen to spray your hair and then the wind blows your hair, the scent is sent into the noses of all around you. Not at all a bad fragrance. Multiple compliments for this one!

This is a delicious scent! It is great for winter and can be worn everyday or only on special occasions or even for sexy moments! It lingers, but I wished it lasted longer.

Norell New York is a very nice scent but just wasn't very long lasting on me. I know others said it lasted all day for them, but for me it seemed to fade rather quickly. I loved the scent though.

I remember this Norell from high school and wanted it back in my life. I liked that it's wasnt a scent that everyone wore. It did not disappoint. It's light but not to light with a classic scent that I loved and still love, prefect for work!

Norell review
This is not a perfume I would ever buy - very fragrant, and to me reminds me of something an older lady would wear - strong powdery scent, if you want something that the scent will stay around forever this is it! Not for me however

Norell
I wanted this perfume to be amazing, but it was not. Honestly, it smelled deep and heavy, which isn?t bad, but it smelled like every other deep, heavy scent I?ve tried. I wanted more spice than it delivers. And I wanted it to be more mysterious than it is. All In all, I will wear it when I?m in the right mood, but I?d never pay the price and buy a bottle.

I love this!!! This was my first Scentbird choice, and the opportunity to try this was the main reason for subscribing! It is amazing- complex, intriguing, simultaneously strong and soft, classy and ladylike but with a dark, sexy element. It's one of those fragrances that drive me crazy with sniffing it, trying to pick out the individual notes to articulate why it smells so good to me! When I first spray it, the main impression is green and powdery, then immediately a sweet heaviness- dark floral, musky, spicy. I think the first impressions are from the galbanum, pear, and orris root (iris). The next notes most prominent to me are the blend of jasmine, sandalwood, and vetiver. I think either the sandalwood or the vetiver are giving it that dark, "dirtysexy" note that I love so much and recognize from Shalimar Parfum Initial. And there is definitely something spicy, perhaps the orange blossom. When I first wore it, I couldn't decide if it felt super edgy and modern, had a cool retro vibe, or was old world European elegant. I've decided it's all three of those things, depending on my mood. I adore it and will likely invest in a full bottle now. I just don't see me being without it, now that I've tried it. For reference, some of my other favourites are the aforementioned Shalimar PI, Coco Mademoiselle, Balenciaga Paris L'Essence, RL Romance, Prada Candy Kiss. On the lighter side I love Light Blue and Jo Malone's Wood Sage & Sea Salt.

The package arrived quickly and was well packaged. I've tried removing the vile from the external cylinder but with no luck so far-hope I can by the time next month's fragrance gets here. This perfume was just an "ok" for me. My favorite perfumes are usually woody florals like Narciso Rodriguez For Her, Coco Mademoiselle, Nest's Indigo, Armani's Si, etc. I was expecting this to be similar based on the written description on this site. While I did find it to have a warm/spicy base that I liked, overall on me it smelled a little "grandma" - and I'm almost 50! There wasn't enough "brightness" in this fragrance for me-something I think it needs to temper the warmth. It felt too one-note as well, and I prefer layers and depth in a perfume. Not bad, just not for me.

I liked this scent, but it also isn't my favorite. I wouldn't buy it. It's got a strong spice scent to me, it's clean which makes me like it. But there's just a strongness to it that I wouldn't wear everyday. Still a good one to have and use when you're up for a bold smell.

I am so confused. This perfume smells nothing like it said and the reviews I read on it. Matter of fact it stinks. And I really don't know if I got what I thought I was getting because nowhere on my bottle or package does it tell me the name of the perfume I received. This is my first perfume from Scentbird. If next month is the same as this month I won't continue with this.

I don't know other people say this smells "generic"....... This smells AMAZING.... It's an AMAZING green floral. I would for sure wear this at night, but you can smell the peony, and Jasmine petals..... Then the violet and rose on the dry down... I would take a bottle of this.

This is a fabulous green scent that pays homage to the OG Norell but still smells contemporary. It's pretty much the perfect daytime warm weather fragrance--and definitely office-appropriate.

Overall classy, pleasant, and safe. The opening smells like spring.I don't get any of the fruity top notes, just the greenery and the powdery iris root. The flowers really shine as the perfume starts to warm on my skin, and it becomes warmer and softer throughout the day. I'd say there are many other similar perfumes, but this one is of a higher quality than most. No blast of alcohol in the top, no synthetic sharpness, and every element seems properly balance. I like it enough that I'll probably use it up as the weather warms, but not sure yet if I'm into it enough to purchase more. ...Another note: this smells the way I'd hoped Burberry London would.

It?s a pretty fragrance. I mostly smell the jasmine, peony, and vetiver. The problem is that it smells generic. I do associate this smell with a positive thing: shopping, because it literally smells like that scent when you walk into a department store through the make-up section. It?s good, but I want to smell like a goddess, not a consumer. I have no idea why they would name this New York. They should have named it Norell: Mall Anchor Store.

Norell is a more powdery fragrance and did not stay on long. I am not quite sure what the undertones are, kind of a Jasmine. Also it seemed to have more alcohol in it.

Hmmmm....this one is really hard for me. It turned out to be one of "those fragrances" that smells absolutely FANTASTIC on other people, but just doesn't go well with my own chemistry. :( I'm so sad, because I ended up giving it to a co-worker and she LOVES it! And her office smells like HEAVEN :( Therefore, while it's not for me, I absolutely LOVE how the air smells around here ;)

Hmmm....not crazy about this one. I expected it to be very floral, based on the description, but I couldn't detect any of the floral notes. instead it has a very strong, heavy scent...maybe its the orris ? I wouldn't recommend if you like soft, fresh florals.

This wasn't in my queue, yet was still sent to me for some reason. Unfortunately, I do not like the scent one bit. I can't decide whether I think it smells masculine, or old-ladyish. Either way, I'm not a fan and won't be wearing this, and am pretty bummed that I didn't get a scent I actually wanted this month.
