Description
Power Ballad is a bold fragrance inspired by 1990?s-era power ballads, mix tapes and glam rock, to recall a time when people still bought CDs and raised their Bic lighters at concerts. Grapefruit, poplar buds, and fresh mint stage dive into cumin, anise, and cedar in this retro mashup of citrus and spice.

Not for everyone
The description caught my attention but it was a bit too musky for my taste. The only way I can describe the smell was "funky". If you're into that, this is perfect for you.

Yuck..
I?m sorry but this was the first fragrance that was sent to me when I subscribed to Scentbird. I had no idea how it smelled I simply took a chance on it because the bottle caught my eye, needless to say once I received it I was highly disappointed ?. I emediatly unscrewed the cap and poured it down the drain, I would not recommend this fragrance to anyone. Please do not buy!!!! If you do your going to be pissed once it arrives?~. I now know to only pick scents that have 4 stars or better!

Just Not My Favorite
This perfume is very unique, but I find that it's just a too woody for me. It starts out bright and fresh on the first spray but then it quickly turns to a sharp woody fragrance. It could definitely be a unisex fragrance but I find it works better as a men's cologne.

More ballad than power
A nice scent, although a soft one. To me, it's a typical soft pencil shaving fragrance with some vetiver - kinda like the smell of clean new paper. I get no citrus notes whatsoever, even though I was hoping for some grapefruit (one of my favorite notes). A slight floral quality shows up after dry down. At least it has a decent longevity - even after several hours (8-10), it is still perceptible as a skin scent and on my shirt.

It has a very unique scent. When you first put it on, the first thing you notice is the smell of cedar. As it dries you don't notice it as much. It calms down and has a smell that just settles into a pleasent aroma.

For me, this perfume was spot on. Light, no floral scent. Had a touch of masculinity but still feminine. I think the citrus with mint was the homerun

Beautiful floral scent
I appreciated the fresh & strong floral notes but found it a little overly feminine for my personal taste. I would consider this more of a springy day to night perfume; however, it does lack some in staying power & needs to be reapplied often. Overall, I would say this one is worth a try!

Howdy folks, from The DFW Metroplex, TX. First impressions are a bit in your face, strong on the black pepper side but, (First a Warning) if you have an empty stomach while you?re rushing to get ready for work and just finished brushing your teeth and then sprayed this in particular fragrance on yourself yourself, you might get a little nauseous just because it?s a bit overwhelming so I highly implore you to treat yourself to a really tall steaming stack of pancakes first! LOL!!!

As a fan of a good power ballad, I wanted to love this one, but it just wasn?t a hit for me. I hadn?t read reviews prior, it was the name that sang out. I see where members have mentioned it smelled musky in them - I didn?t detect that on me. I envisioned some musky/rosemary/citrus/boozy concoction, but got a leathery/cedar scent that reminded me more of opening a chest of old clothes in my grandmothers attic. It didn?t stay with me long - about an hour later I could barely detect it. I gave it a second try a few days later, but still can?t get into it. I guess with it?s name, it could have smelled like stale beer, sweat & weed - which might have even helped. My least favorite in over of two years of Scentbird sampling.

This is my new favorite scent. It?s definitely more toward the masculine side of unisex but I think Iit smells amazing on my skin. I may have to buy a full size of this for the season. For me I think it?s a wonderful fall fragrance. I prefer lighter more floral for the hotter months.

I did not like this scent in the bottle but it transforms on my skin! It's got this peppery/spicy note that just works on me. I love this and would definitely buy a whole bottle for myself. I think it works in all seasons and all circumstances. It's sexy for going out but light enough for the office. Love it but I love another one more so it doesn't get the full 5 hearts

I don't really smell any of the notes listed on the bottle - mostly it just smells generically musky to me. It goes on pretty strong, so that may be why; the power of those lower notes may be overwhelming anything more complex.

I could not love this scent more than I do!! It hits all my favorite notes, slightly masculine, spicy, and strong but also fresh and unique, with a softness. It's complex and interesting and definitely memorable. For sure unisex -- my husband and I have been sharing it, and it works well on both of us. I can't wait to try more from this brand. The comparison to Spicebomb was spot-on; it's my other favorite fragrance, and Power Ballad is a close second now!

This is a delightful woodsy citrus with gin&tonic made slightly furry by the addition of cumin. It also has quite a bit of longevity to it without being overpowering. It is definitely unisex. This is worksafe and great for summer.
