Too strong...
I did not like this scent, it is not my style. It is too strong for me. I like a lighter/softer scent. This one kinda reminds me of an old ladies perfume. Sorry.

It smells like aquanet
No offense. My Mom loves the scent its an evening wear to me. Its a bit strong, and over whelming as I am more of a light floral girl but it doesn't smell bad just a heavy smell. More like date night after a long hot day.

Sexy and fun
This was a surprise. I was not expecting the way this fragrance came out. I love Oscar de la Renta fragrances and this one is no exception. This is perfect for date night. When you wear it, it instantly makes you feel beautiful and sexy and your SO may not be able to start away from you. The notes of jasmine and tuberose really shine and i just felt absolutely lovely wearing it.

I gave this sample to my mother....it's a fragrance that goes better with her generation....unless your the type of girl who likes a stronger deeper scent....if so this scent has your name on it.

Brings back memories
Oscar for Women was my very first "designer" grown-up fragrance back in the 80's. I had high hopes for Esprit D'Oscar and it did not disappoint! Very similar to Oscar, but not the same. This fragrance is light and feminine, you wear it, it does not wear you.

Old and powdery, but in an elegant way.
At first whiff, this reminded me of my grandmother. Well not my grandmother per se, but surely somebody's grandmother. It was VERY powdery smelling, and that is saying a lot considering I tend to gravitate towards slightly powdery scents. It grew on me a bit after a few days of wear, and it started to make me feel like a classy middle-aged woman headed to the opera in her most expensive dress. Nice, yes, but only for special occasions. It doesn't quite fit my laid-back everyday style.

Not for the faint of heart
A lovely fragrance. Unabashedly feminine if perhaps a little in your face about it. A grown-up scent for a woman of class. A bit powdery and the staying power is amazing. Skin misted with Esprit will last all day, and on a sweater..it will last through a washing ;). I have to have the right mindset and mood to reach for this one, not an everyday fragrance for me.

I was looking forward to my first Scentbird perfume pick however much to my dismay I was disappointed. It must be a popular perfume with the older set because it reminds me of sweet little old ladies. It is a strong long-lasting scent that smells like musky baby powder. I’m going to read the reviews before I choose my next scent!

Not Happy
I do not like this scent at all. One spray was WAY overpowering and has too much floral scent for my liking at all. It sort of reminds me of that sweet little old lady that wears too much little old lady perfume. And I thought maybe it was just me not liking it, so I asked my mom, sister and niece to all try and none of them liked it either...too strong for any of us.

Musty not Musky
I wish I had read the reviews first :( This is for sure an old lady scent. And honestly, I probably wouldn't wear this in my 80's either. I tried to select based on the "notes" I usually like but I got it wrong. I haven't even worn it because I don't like how it smells directly from the bottle.

This scent is fresh, floral and sweet. It smells like soap or some type of cleaner. I feel like it is best for older women or it should be worn when you are going to the gym. I am not a fan of this scent but I don't hate it either. I think the violet and heliotrope are too strong and clash with the other notes.

I love this fragrance. I would consider this a classic scent, not an old lady scent. Everyone knows that it will not smell the same on a person as is does smelling straight from the bottle. Each persons body chemistry is different so I would encourage you to try it on before making a decision. On me it smells wonderful and my husband loves it.

This smells lovely in the bottle, but the moment it made contact with my skin it had a strange baby powder smell. Having cared for someone in hospice before, the scent (on my skin) reminded me of some of the fragrance that is used in home hospice personal care products. However, I can see how this would work with someone who has different chemistry than I!

I really do not like this scent. I sprayed it on myself a couple times one night and that was the only time I wore it. It reminded me of something my Nana would wear.

This is similar to Oscar de la Renta from the 1980's, but better. Exquisite in my opinion. Very sweet and powdery as it has heliotrope and tonka bean. I am an older lady but not elderly and I think it is a respectful nod to it's predecessor but lighter & joyful with the bergamot note. Even my daughter in her 20's thought it was very nice.
