Starts out way too citrusy but (at least on my skin) moved towards the spiced fruit, my partner and I both agreed it smelled best after an hour of wear. Very mellow.

I love this smell. Very woodsy, musky. Reminds me of the smell of the woods after the rain. I love it.

It smells sensual, not sure that the fragrance lasts as long as I would like it to, throughout the day.

Very sexy and spicy fragrance, but still feminine and delicate. Many people complimented me on it, it's a subtle showstopper!

A slight hint of powder lays underneath light florals... this is a lovely scent.

The scent didn't last at all, so I can't really say if it's a remarkable one.

This fragrance captures spices. I find it to be ambery, gingery, and warm in a fresh sense, however I also find it lacking something. It's almost as if I'm wishing for an oud note or something "sticky". If I may, I feel like this perfume contains some of the best ingredients from the East, but was concocted by a Westerner and therefore, doesn't fully capture the perfume's name sake. The longevity is only a couple of hours, maybe three tops. After that it settles on the skin.

This is a "grown up scent" . It's great for winter. It lasts all day.

Very, very mature fragrance. And when I say mature I mean I think of my 80 year old grandmother, because this is something she would wear.

My favorite perfume is Miss Dior, and this was a bit similar, but it does not last on me nearly as long. It's less sweet smelling than Miss Dior, so I wouldn't say this is a good scent for younger girls, but overall its a good, somewhat mature smelling (without being overpowering at all), scent for the autumn :)

This scent was not for me. It had a strong musty scent that I didn't like. I could barely get the hints of chocolate and raspberry.

LOVE this. Everyone I've shared it with loves it. What a great scent. Perfect spring/fall scent with a bit of spice and a lot of fruit/citrus high notes.

I prefer more woodsy, vanilla, creamy smells ....that being said This was not really my favorite. It was so sweet and fruity it came across as a very heavy alcohol smell .The amber smell was a bit heavy and ruined because of the fruity smell . It didn't smell horrible just kind of different not at all an intoxicating I got to know what your wearing perfume .

This was an interesting scent to me. I tend to prefer scents that are light and fresh, which this isn't. It is definitely a patchouli influenced scent, which doesn't tend to be my thing. However, it did dry down a lot milder than on first spray, and I ended up not minding it. I'll reach for it when I want something a bit exotic, but won't buy it when I'm out.

Oriens smells better than I imagined! It's a lovely scent; a hint of floral and background of fresh, light powder. I recommend trying it!

"this smells good but if you have any sensitivities to strong scents i.e. migraines consider yourself warned. its a bit strong, which would be good for the evening and the winter."

"I really like this scent but it gave me a migraine. I am super sensitive to smells so when I sprayed this I thought it had a great smell to it and it was sexy but I got the migraine soon after. Sad face, I have to swap this out now. As for the notes, I feel this is a more mature fragrance and comes off a bit older than my age but I do love the spiciness of this fragrance. So far my favorite to date would be Flowerbomb if you are looking for something that goes along with the notes from this scent."

Love this scent. It's sophisticated and versatile. I wore this when I knew I had plans after work. I would put it on in the morning and it would last all day. It isn't overly sweet and has a spiciness to it. I actually plan on purchasing a full bottle when my sample runs out.

"This is a beautiful sweet sophisticated scent that could blend into any season or any time of day, I think. The patchouli isn't too strong, but keeps the florals and the sweetness a little bit sexy. I think the berries come out pretty strong, but this is definitely not a little girl scent. You could wear this to work or out on a date and you would smell great. I took off one star because it has a pretty soft projection, and I prefer fragrances like this to have a little more gusto."
