Not happy 😩
This was my first scent and I am NOT a fan. It smells like men’s cologne. I will probably end up giving it to my son because it’s too spicy. I’m hoping that my other scents are better!

Very Unique
I received more compliments on this cologne then probably any other one I think because it’s very unique different than traditional colognes and normal scents. it’s very woodsy almost cinnamony with a hint of citrus just very unique

Unisex?
I feel as though this is an unisex scent. Not a bad thing, just it is something both sexes would enjoy. It is a very clean & doesn't have a seasonal feel to it. Very pleasant.

Perfection
It opens with lemon providing the sun high in the sky. This sets the stage for a high concentration of cardamom to take its place. There is a clever shift of actual citrus fruit to the lemon-tinged spice in the early moments. Blood orange comes next. In most fragrances the blood orange can get lost. When it is the featured player it gives it the opportunity to show off its richer facets. It creates a fantastic harmonic with the cardamom. In the base a set of white musks create a more expansive accord over the final development. Eau Contraire has 6-8 hour longevity and average sillage.

Fresh clean scent
A little too strong when first sprayed, but mellows into perfection in less than an hour and residual scent is clean and herbal.

Who in their right mind would want to smell like this?!?! This is disgusting and why I cancelled my subscription. You forget to put your choices and they give you this garbage. Smells like dirt and oil

Quite nice
There are definitely days when I don't feel like wearing a floral scent, so I turn to this one. The blood orange goes a bit sweet on my skin, and that helps to balance out the masculinity of the scent. The dry down keeps the lingering sweetness from the orange, but it's mostly spice from the cardamom. It usually wears for 4-5 hours and is fairly easy-going. My favorite time to wear it is right after a workout.

Simple, yet refreshing
A sparkling, fresh citrus scent. Nothing groundbreaking or unique, but a quality fragrance. Wears close to the skin and lasts a reasonable 4 - 5 hours, which is expected of an Eau de Cologne formulation.

Eau Nomade?
Is this the same as Eau Nomade? Because that's what the decant label says. It's a sweetish, spiced orange. Further on the masculine side of the unisex spectrum. I don't enjoy unisex scents as much as I did before my pregnancy, so I gave this one to my husband. It's nice on him but not my favorite. I agree there is a cheapish vibe to it, a sort of chemical undertone. And it is rather fleeting, as are many citrus scents.

I like the initial scent but it leaves a strange "after smell" that doesn't sit well on my skin. It has more of a cologne smell so that it's unisex. A little too overpowering for my tastes.

Very good lasting life though it can only be noticed subtly. This scent is great to wear (esp for me in the gym or rehearsal) but I wouldn't buy it because of the synthetic tone underneath the sparkly blood orange. I'd recommend if you don't have sensitive skin.

A burst of ginger with a softer citrus following. The cardamom's there, but subtle. Low sillage and longevity.

Disappointing - cardamom is one of my favorite notes. I get a LOT of ginger and not much cardamom at all. Opening reminds me of the opening of Hermes Jardin d Mousson but not so wet. The citrus is there but feels synthetic to me. Definite fizz and sparkle though; the overall effect is like mixing gingerale and Fanta. Not bad but not what I was expecting.

This fragrance is just ok, it is not my favourite with my body chemistry. I get a lot of muted, almost stale smelling, cardamom, but none of the blood orange. It has good sillage and decent longevity, lasting around six hours on one spray.

I like this but cardamom notes don't come across well on my skin. I find this to be 'masculine' in a pleasant way, without that toothpaste-y note that dominates many colognes.

I love this scent. However, it is not long lasting and the silage is very light. I would put more toward the masculine end of the scale, but it is intoxicating.
