Strong scent
I like more flowery, citrusy perfumes. This perfume was to over overpowering for me. It does last, so that's a plus. The scent has a strong incensey/smokey smell.

It is a masculine smell that I find fades
I love the smell of this one but find it fades faster than others or my sense just grows accustomed to it more than my other scents received. Over all though one of my favorites.

Middle of the road.
Unisex, sometimes when people say middle of the road we think of it as a bad thing. With this one think middle of the road meaning balanced. Pleasant and clean scent

I absolutely love this fragrance. It definitely smells like its name encens, but with softness/powdery scent. I wear it during the day at work/weekends.

Incense indeed
Don't believe the Scentbird description that this is a "lightly spiced" scent. It is an extremely heavy, rich incense scent. It's not bad, but it's too heavy and cloying for the summer, when I got it. I think I need to re-order my queue!

I thought I'd love it more
I thought based on some of their other fragrances and the notes in this one that I would love it more, but it smells soapy on me which isn't my favorite. I was expecting more incense.

My new favorite perfume!
I noticed this perfume lasts longer on fabric than the skin. Wanted to give a heads up since I noticed other people mentioning that it doesn't last long but after 3-4 days I still smell the scent on my clothes. Overall, love this pepery and mature smelling scent.

Adequate
This reminds me a lot of Estee Lauder's Pleasures, which is a good thing. Encens isn't nearly as overpowering though. It has a bold opening which dries down to a pleasant background incense. I never got the pepper. Really quite feminine for something which is described as unisex. Perhaps a little generic for my taste.

This scent is very "dry". Did not care for it AT ALL. In fact, I sprayed it on myself when it came in and I had to shower and change clothes. Waste of a month...

Tolerable after it fades
I found this scent to smell much like soap or shaving cream. It’s waaaay too strong at first but eventually fades into a clean, woodsy scent. This may work better for a man.

Peppered sex
I super love this unusual peppered scent. The first time I used it, i was unsure. But the more I wear it, the more i love it. My husbands likes it and says it reminds him of smoky pepper. The touch of smokiness pairs nicely with pepper for a sexy/spicy scent.

I LOVE this scent, very unique and complex. Comes across clean with a unique incense smell then lingers on a peppery note. So different and lovely. This is a great and very different unisex fragrance! Can't get enough.

Cologne Review
I enjoy the somewhat Smokey smell of this cologne and the overall earthy scent it intells. I would just say the smell can be a little overpowering.

Nice quality juice.
This is a very safe office or casual scent IMO. Leans feminine to my nose. Wish there was more incense and pepper with less amber. Overall I would say this would be good for a woman to wear.

Subtle yet overpowering
It's not easily recognized that cologne is being worn. Scent is very earthy and at least in my opinion, nasally offensive. I didn't subject others to a smell test on this one as even if they approved, I wouldn't wear it because I don't care for the scent.

Sultry
This is a strong, spicy scent that does remind me of incense but not in a gross overpowering way. Nice if you want something spicy and musky that isn't old lady-ish. It's not one of those unisex fragrances that leans hard toward feminine, but it's also not super masculine (a unisex fragrance that actually smells unisex, what?)

Amazing!
So happy I chose this one. The last two I got where okay, but not me. This one is 100% Me. My husband immediately agreed it was made for me haha. Its a very woodsy, perfume smell.. its almost addicting, i just keep smelling it. Its really unlike anything else ive smelled. I love perfume but always feel like its hard to pair something to me that isnt essential oils.. everything always smells so fancy, and fake on me. Found my new favorite, obsessed.

I honestly did not like this scent. It was the most awful smell ever. It reminds me of older ladies. I wasn’t impressed at all and won’t ever order it again the smell does die down a bit after it’s on but it’s still a no for me. I will give it to my aunt

gets attention
It defiantly has a leather and floral scent with some spice to it. And is pretty strong when first put on, but it does fade out after a few hours or at least with sweating. I'd sauna spray to two before a date or interview ect. Don't put in for ride over to somewhere if it's going to be hot. Good scent little weird at first but you really do kinda like it pretty quick

Uniquely smokey
I love woody scents, especially when mixed with pepper, leather, and having an underlying feminine flowery note. This was right up my alley. Its more complex than than just 'smoke'. It mellows after awhile, becoming an addictive, subtle scent, that constantly gets me compliments.

Too much pepper
Was hoping for a scent a little more on the nag champa side when I read that it has notes of incense. It’s super peppery.... like black pepper and doesn’t seem to last long at all. Not my taste.

Not a fan of this at all!
I had high hopes for this fragrance, but it is awful! It smells very perfumey & overly strong. After it dries down it is much more tolerable but the initial spray is so offensive I don't know if I can ever bring myself to wear it.

Not for me
I have been a Scentbird customer for more than two years. This is the WORST scent that I have tried thus far. To me, it is like squirting black pepper all over. The middle and bottom notes of incense and musk last only for a few minutes and then it all but wears off. However, please, as you read this, take my review with a grain of salt because scent, fragrance, and reviews are all highly subjective, which I'm sure you know. This is just not a scent that I would ever wear again, nor would I want to be around someone who is wearing this.

Interesting....
The black pepper definitely slapped me in the face when I first sprayed. It dries to a nearly-exclusive myrrh scent on me. I love myrrh, so that's fine. There's something that's just not quite *there* for me, but I can't put my finger on it. Decent longevity and good projection.

Not my style
Overall, the smell is very light. Not too overwhelming, but it just was not my style. I am trying to figure out what exactly it was. It also could be that this particular scent does not sit well with other oils in my skin. To me, it is more of a night time scent. It does not smell bad, it just was not for me.
