I wore this fragrance MANY years ago...like about 40 (yikes)! I like the change in it. Still a beautiful fragrance, lasts fairly well too.
Very nice but...
I really like this perfume. It's very elegant smelling and is ok when it comes to how long it lasts. I like it but I prefer the other norell I got more than this one. I'd say it's more of a date night or special occasions kind of perfume.
It was a nice scent but had no lasting value. I had used it many years ago and thought it was a darker color. Any way it's a very light scent.
It is okay
It is okay. It is fresh smelling but not floral enough for me. It is more "green plant" smelling. I didn't hate it but I didn't love it either.
I was really surprised by how much I love this scent. I've had it in my queue for a while and almost deleted it after reading the reviews!–so glad I didn't. I'm not a huge fan of the smell in the bottle, but something about this scent mixing with my body chemistry–oh man. It smells SO good. It's definitely sweet and warm, so a wintertime fragrance for me, don't let the negative reviews sway you!
I love floral scents. I enjoy and wear things that many reviews state are "grandma scents". This was too grandma for me. It was so sweet smelling on me that it was sickly. I tried layering it with a more woodsy lotion to see if that would tone it down. It did not. This is one I will be tossing. Yuck.
The scent smells nothing like classic Norell and really shouldn't even have the name! It smells like a variety of other department store perfumes that seek to mimic one another in order to have mass appeal. It is neither distinguished nor sophisticated. I was really disappointed!
Tried Norell Elixir before this one. Definitely like this one more out of the two. There’s a little hint of fruit and then it’s more floral. I like it.
Even my Hubby Likes it
My hubby usually doesn't notice my perfume this one he likes and even commented on. I love it I feel sophisticated and classy with out being "too old" of a scent.
Date night scent
Late night date night meeting scent
I was pleasantly surprised at how much i liked this classic fragrance.
I loved it and everyone loves the scent on me.
Yuck. I do not smell florals. Smells clean and soapy. Not for me
One of my favorites
I have reordered this scent at least 4 times now... i love it so much. It is a sexy scent and blends perfectly with my chemistry.
Not as Described
It has a peppery type of smell. I am not a fan
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.
Love the scent, very floral and pretty but does not last long. Smells
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!
I love sophisticated old lady scents, this is not one of them
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.
Strong and powerful, just a couple of sprays and it lasts all day. I wear this primarily top work.
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!
Long enough for me to even know if I liked it or not. The initial scent was flowery and then just gone.
this is an every day smell
It’s not bad, but it’s not one of my favorite I just wanted to try it up.
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
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.
First One I haven’t liked. This one honestly smells like cheap perfume to me. I’ll probably end up trying to give it away or just toss it.
This has to be one of my least favorite scents that I have received. The perfume stays with you all day but my boyfriend made it his mission to tell me how much I smelled like “an old lady”
I did not like this scent at all!! It screamed old lady!!!!!
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.
Love that it is not over powering
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.
Not what I remembered and the bottle was broken so everything was open the shipping cartons.
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.
Disappointed - not what I expected
Absolutely amazing. I never leave home without it! I receive so many compliments when I'm out.
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 norell is definitely different from the norell my mother used to wear. It's spiced up and made young again
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.
Used this perfume years ago. Not what I remember. However I'd give it 3 out of 5 stars.
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.
I really like this scent. At first spray it smells a little powdery and strong but the dry down is very sexy.
This smells heavy and woody on me. It can pass as a men's fragrance. Not quite what I'm looking for. My grandma likes it, so I gave it to her.
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.
Lovely fragrance!! It even lasts all day!!
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.
A bit too strong however I love the rose smell in it
Still waiting for this scent.12/24/2016
It was overwhelming and sort of like cologne
I found this to be a very unpleasant scent. Would not recommend this fragrance to a friend.
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 ;)
I do not like this fragrance at all. Smells like old lady
A little disappointed wasn't what i expected
WAS NOT A FAN OF THIS SCENT. SMELLS REALLY SWEET WITH A OLD LADY FRAGRANCE
I love it. Perfect winter scent. Spicy!
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.
Its a pretty scent. It starts off flowery/powdery but becomes less floral more powdery. Not bad, but just not my style.
Norell Elixir isnot my type of perfume. I like fresh, clean, and fruity type scents. This one is a is a little to heavy and musky to me.
I did not get this perfume on my queue, but my friend did and she said she smelled like an old lady. She then gave it to me and everybody loves it! It's smooth and silky, powdery and mellow.
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.
This smells like it is for an old lady
It was ok. Nothing extraordinary. Very floral. Scent had average staying power but did not last through 8 hour work day. I will use it up but wouldn't purchase it.
I love, love, love this scent. It's soft and sophisticated and fits my personality so well!
Not horrible but not anything that will get compliments-at least not for me... It smells like several perfumes together, it wasn't very distinct to me. Floral and powdery
This was much heavier and more pronounced than I prefer my scents to be.
I love this perfume. It's wonderfully balanced. Not too sweet & not too green. Has nice staying power. Most scents change on me, but I'm pleasantly surprised this one didn't. Received many compliments. I've found a new favorite, Thanks Scentbird!!
I'm not huge on anything floral but I really love how this scent stays on all day and it actually smells really good.
I liked this scent, it was fresh and sweet. It did fade after an hour or two, but I'll use the whole vile.
Fresh, very floral, and powdery. Seems to fade quickly. It's a mature scent that smells nice, but I would not purchase a full bottle or reach for this sample over any of my other perfumes.
