Lovely herbal scent!
This is my 5th scent from the subscription, and probably my favorite. I has reasonable staying power on me for an EDT, and if the sillage dies down after time, I can still smell it on myself for most of the day for sure. I never underestimate what others can smell on me if I can still smell it close to the skin...even as sillage dies down. Have been looking for a scent like Gap Grass. My absolute favorite scent on earth is fresh cut grass...the chlorophyll released when driving by someone who's moving the lawn. Gap Grass came the closest to this for me. While Apsu is in the family, it's not it...but is certainly related. Lovers of Gap Grass would likely appreciate this one. While a primary note is cilantro in the description, I smell another herb - definitely closer to parsley. Maybe some type of hay or field grass? There is something mixed in that, on me, relaxes down to a subtle tart/almost salty (can't recall the proper word) effect to balance the parsley herbal smell. Be warned - do not overspray. I did and came close to getting a headache. You do not need a lot - this is no Jo Malone scent (that fades after 5 minutes) or other watered down aquatic or green scent. I find this fitting for spring through fall. It is as easily a sunny fall day as it is a mid-summer scent.

Smells like outside
This doesn't smell good to me at all. It smells like wet log or some type of tree smell it just doesn't smell good at all. Avoid it!

Green and bold
Have to say after reading other reviews I was concerned that I wouldn’t like it. Upon first spray, it’s the strong green and peppery scent of cilantro and that moment I fell in love with it. It’s cut grass and green fields. It softens up in a few minutes and a lot of the sharpness goes away. This to me is full bottle worthy. My only issues are no silage and longevity is 2-3 hours. Since it’s fairly linear, reapplication is easy.

Smells good
This smells very good. It has a hint of citrus and it's a bit tangy. However, it smells very good. But it doesn't seem to last that long.

Apsu
This is a very green smell. If you are looking for sweet - DON'T pick this perfume. Remember - its unisex, so don't expect it to be feminine. If you like the smell of fresh cut grass, it almost smells like that. I also think its a very bold scent, with woody undertones that make it very mature. I like this when I'm running errands or am out and about - but its hard for me to wear to work. When I'm sitting still and smelling it, it can be a little overwhelming.

Green Glue
This is the smell of fresh cut grass dipped in glue; the green is covered in chemicals. It smells the way a dandelion stem tastes.

I absolutely adore this fragrance. It smells so green just like the label. It reminded me of a type of fresh, garden, rained on, floral, ethereal vacation in the sun. I love it!

Give it a second or maybe even a third chance
Lover this scent! I get awesome green notes, very organic smelling, super fresh! But it didn't start that way. Storytime~~ So when I first tried this perfume I was borderline upset. I sprayed a tight, close spray on my wrist. I got a STRONG black pepper smell. I tried to give it a chance but wiped it off after a minute. So I have like 4 people who get excited a to smell my new perfume every month. As I explained to each person it smelled like straight pepper and tested it for them it grew on me, and I realized I LOVE THIS SCENT! I tend to do a large, airy, far away spray instead of the tight, close wrist spray.

Awful musk scent
It doesn't work well with my skin. I get this weird scent that makes me think of raw chicken. It's repulsive.

Great Green Scent
It's very mossy and green. I liked it a lot. Just wish it lasted longer and projected a bit more. It would fade almost completely on my skin after just a couple of hours.

Give it a chance
I need to give this one a little love here. I know this is listed as unisex but it's most certainly masculine leaning. To me, I get a sharp citral cilantro with the essence of fresh rhubarb and grass clippings. For me this one lasts and lasts. I have received compliments with this especially in the hottest days of the NC summer. I particularly like this fragrance because of it's activation when I sweat. I bartend on the beach and this scent starts to really throw itself into the crowd once I am fever hot. Better than what I'd smell like scent-less for sure. The scent is rather linear but it's a pleasant cloud of fresh green leaves.

Long lasting, woody, delightfully fresh.
I loved this one. It lasted what seemed like forever on my skin, and gave a woody, warm, floral musk that wore well throughout the day at my professional job. Not overpowering, but enough to leave a trace when I walked by someone. I got many compliments.

Obsessed
I’m a little obsessed with this one! I love green/earthy fragrances and this one didn’t disappoint! When you first spray it, it DOES smell super overwhelming and not very pleasant. Let it die down!!! It mellows out to a fresh scent. I’ve received many compliments while wearing!!

masculine
I get cut grass and cucumber, maybe something woodsy--very sharp greenery with no floral tones to soften it. It is a nice scent for doing something outdoorsy, maybe working out/hiking, but not for work imo. My husband likes it but thinks it smells masculine. Great longevity, though!

Unique Scent. Light and Fresh
I really like this scent. I had several compliments that it carried a light cucumber impression. I also noticed a very light and not too sweet floral scent. 3 sprays in the morning lasted about 5 hours on my skin.

Very Unique
They are not kidding in the description when it is described as green. It is VERY green. When I first sprayed it I immediately spelled cilantro and cut grass. It cools off to a decent clean fragrance but definitely not for me. I will only use it because I hate wasting things. Very unique fragrance. There is no middle ground. Either you love it or hate it.

Very unique
This is a very unique fragrance. I did love it when I first but it on and it change and got a little spicier on me. I love clean scents. I cannot wear very heavy scents no more. My hormones have changed and I suffer from migraines. This one is tolerable.

Smells like fresh cut weeds, as in when you mow over a big patch of weeds with the lawn mower. 🤢 Won’t be wearing it, had to wash it off after a couple of minutes because it was so bad.

Very nice
This was my first try with Scentbird, and I was concerned about choosing blindly from online, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It’s a nice, crisp green fragrance, and doesn’t have the warm undertones that give me a headache. It lasts about four hours or so and is unobtrusive. I like to smell my own perfume but I don’t want to be that person that leaves a room stinking of perfume and Apsu rides that line pretty well. After wearing it for a month, I’d consider buying a bottle.

Terrible
Terrible. I chose this scent based on the reviews. At first smell it definately was a familiar scent. After about a week of wearing it, not getting a single compliment, someone says "i smell a stink bug" and it hit me. The cologne smells identical to the smell of a smushed stink bug. Extremely disappointed.

Sweet
I picked this scent because I like the smell of ‘green things’. The sugar smell is the top note and the grass is the underdog. It’s not as fresh as I would have liked. It’s vwry sweet.

nice original scent
At the first spray I sort of liked it. It is fresh, it is original! Is it delightful? No, not really. Something in it reminds me of a sticky face sweat. In France we kiss people on the cheeks to say hello, and Apsu reminds me of this particular non stinky but sticky face sweat mixed with an organic moisturizer.

Freshhhh
This is one of the most unique scents I've come accross so far. So basically, if someone took a huge grassy field covered in dew on a Sunday morning, concentrated the smell and put it in a bottle, you'd have Apsu. It smells freakin terrific. It's a light smell, so it's not offensive at all, but it sticks around all day. Perfect for the office. This isn't a seductive scent by any means, so maybe pick something else for date night guys. But if you want to smell great during the day, I highly recommend this to anyone who appreciates a nice refreshing scent.

Summer scent
Overall I like this, and it lasts pretty well on me with a pretty consistently similar dry-down. It smells fresh and summery, without being floral - it's more unisex in my opinion. It reminds me of grass and sunshine, in a subtle way. I don't think it'd be my go-to, and it gave me a touch of a headache which is why 3 instead of 4 stars.

A little boring?
I enjoy very clean, elegant scents. This was *almost* it. I cannot quite put my finger where it missed the mark, but it just fell short. When I asked for opinions, I usually got "its just okay"

It’s definitely very green
I was attracted to this scent bc of the glowing reviews, and also bc of the cilantro and violet notes. Violet is one of my faves, and I’ve been searching for something that incorporates cilantro. What could be better? This scent has grown on me. People love it; and it makes the hot days more bearable. It a great summer scent.

My first real hit on scentbird! Has notes that remind me of my favorite scent of all time, DSH Wasabi Shiso. Doesn't have a synthetic or cloying perfumey smell; it's really fresh and green. Lovely for spring/summer
