Smells distinctly like an old fashioned women's fragrance. I actually don't adhere to gender assignments on fragrance, I buy what I like, but this is too sweet and just strange on a man, or at least on me.

neroli no more...
The top note is neroli and it smells good for about 30 seconds. After that the fresh citrus scent dissipates into what smells sickeningly sweet white floral on me. Note: florals never smell great on me, but with the name Neroli, I was expecting more citrus and less floral. disappointed to say the least, but it may work on someone whose body chemistry jives with white florals.

Gentle, calming & refined
I love Rag and Bone. Oddity is my favorite Fall/Winter fragrance. Neroli is not as strong as Oddity, though still strong. However, the scent is much more calming than bold. It gives me a sandalwood/refined hippie kind of vibe. Fresh and somewhat musky.

Like a warm summer day
This really reminded me of a warm summer day at the beach, like sand and water. It wasn't a tropical smell like suntan lotion, but just really nice. It was calming and comforting, I was super sad when I used the last of the little bottle. I took off a star because the scent didn't last very long, which is a common theme among the scents from this site.

My second favorite
I got the package and put in on but the top notes were off putting. It smelled like something my godmother wore when I was a kid. 2 minutes later when the scented mingled a little, I loved it. Light and airy, a little sexy sweet. I am buying the big bottle. Love it!

Fine but not for me
This is my second least favorite of the Rag and Bone scents available through scentbird. My favorites in order: Oddity, Bergamot, Encens (would be second favorite if it just lasted a bit longer), Neroli, Cypress. It is the most floral and traditionally feminine of those listed. The musk definitely comes through as well. That being said, I still like it more than many other feminine scents and might wear it every blue moon just to mix things up. I do not think of this as unisex at all though.

The scent was extremely strong. There are some nice undertones that come out several minutes later, however it is very overbearing of a smell. Only one spray and it's too much. I can't imagine a place that this would be appropriate for.

This perfume may be one of my favorite that I've tried!! It legitimately smells like the beach in a bottle! I know that everyone's interpretation of a scent will be different, but to me this smells like suntan lotion, ocean water, and a day in the Sun. If you're looking for summer vibes without a strong floral smell, you can't go wrong with this perfume!

Strong Smell
At first, like many people here, I thought the smell was too strong, and "old smelling" but after it settled into my skin, I fell in love! my clothes still smell like it and I got so many compliments. However, I do not see this being a cologne. I am 22 years old and after about 20 minutes I feel like it fits my age. I would recommend this smell for night time.

Maybe someone will like this but
I do not. It smelled pretty in the bottle but when sprayed on me did not go with my body chemistry. The first notes are very floraly which smelled like carpet fresh and the after effects smelled like a mildew wet sponge. Which I believe was the pink pepper.

Seductive, sophisticated floral
The top note is almost too flowery for me, but it’s tempered by an intelligent amber and mysterious pepper. Deepens into pleasant, seductive scent that’s perfect for the office or a night at the theater. I didn’t get the citrus note, but the perfume is lovely and I’m happy to make it my everyday fragrance. Yay Scentbird!

Green floral great for spring
When I first sprayed this, it was so herbal that I thought it would be a bit too masculine leaning for me to pull off. It reads kind of like a Fougére fragrance, with a strong herbal presence. Then, as it settles into the skin, the green and herbal notes take a back seat to the more floral notes and it balances it and brings it back into my personal safety zone. It is a super fresh floral similar to Vert des Fleur by Tom Ford. (When I say similar, I mean it has the same kind of feel. But, they don’t smell anything alike.)

Nicely balanced
The honey and vanilla are what make this perfume so spectacular, I think. For whatever reason, my body chemistry works best with slightly sweet scents, but I'm in my late thirties, and I don't want to go around smelling like candy. The pepper and lemon help to balance all the sweet floral. The opening is a bit strong, so I usually spritz this on a good twenty or thirty minutes before I'm going to be around other people. (I have allergies, so I'm cautious about exposing people to strong perfume.) But it mellows considerably at the dry down into a gorgeously complex citrus floral wrapped up in warm, spicy sweetness, and it lasts 5-6 hours on me. I don't wear this scent every day, but I get compliments every time I do.

Ending up gifting this to a friend, I found out I wasn't a fan of jasmine but my friend absolutely loved it. At least it helped me determine what scents do and don't smell good on me and jasmine is a big no-no for me going forward. It smells lovely on my friend though!

Not a very "me" scent
I liked this more at first, but once I tried it on myself, I didn't care for it. It was too strong and floral/powdery. It stayed with me all day and it kind of made me sick. Mostly because I gravitate towards sweet and fruity smells, so this just was too mature for my olfactory senses or something. My sister loved it so I was glad to pass this one on. You can definitely smell the pink pepper and other notes, it just unfortunately was not my type.

Well done, but over priced, neroli scent
This is definitely a good grab for scentbird based on the cost of a bottle and what we pay per oz. The neroli and orange blossom are quite fragrant and dry down to a warm vanilla/honey base. I would consider a purchase if the price of a bottle was maybe half what it is ($150), but for now will enjoy my scentbird decant!

Loved it on once the front wore off
It definitely takes a minute to get used to the fact that this is intended as a unisex fragrance but after you do it just balances out so nicely. I deducted one star because I wish it lasted a little longer! The top notes are heavy (if you just smell it in the bottle without spraying at all it smells like grandma's old bottle of Emaraude) to the point that you def don't want to wear too much but you might need to reapply mid-day. Floral and a little powdery with some green grass notes in there as well.

Rag & Bone Neroli
Love the scent, but not as long lasting as I would like.

I'm the "old lady" that likes it, I guess! :/
Reading the other reviews gave me a giggle. I'm [soon-to-be] 42, and LOVE the scent. Oddly, it reminds me of my YOUTH. I took away a star, because, as others have mentioned, it has a peculiar finish.

Something artificial on the end
As some people have said, this smells a little like Tom Ford Neroli Portofino (which I love), but there is something on the end of this that is a little fake or artificial smelling. Maybe like baby powder or something? I couldn't wear this because of that quality.

Meh
I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either.. I suppose I am indifferent. It isn't the true Neroli, I was expecting.

Not a "youthful" fragrance
Not a scent I would ever purchase for myself. I enjoy alluring frangrances that make me feel sexy and young. This frangrance for me just fell short. It reminds me more of something my grandmother may wear for special occasions. I aas very excited since I've never tried a Neroli scent before but I dont really get any citrusy/floral notes. Its more fresh and musky to me.

Meh
The scent is okay, very woodsy. I just don’t think it mixed as well with my body chemistry as others.
