This is one of the most intriguing fragrances I've ever tried. I love AB Egyptian Goddess, Chinese Rain, Tropical Rain, and Patchouli. From reading the description of this fragrance, it seemed I had found my perfect scent. Instead, I found the most interesting scent. This oil is so confusing to me. I still don't know solidly whether I like it or dislike it. When I first put it on, it smells like someone squeezed out a cloud of baby powder in my direction. I should mention that baby powder is a repulsive scent to me. So, immediately I was put on guard. However, shortly after applying it, it changed to a strong chalky scent. By chalky, I mean it smelled exactly like a stick of chalk. For whatever reason, I quite like the smell of chalk. Admittedly, it is quite similar to baby powder, but it is different enough that I actually enjoy it. As it dried further, it developed into a very pungent clean and soapy smell. If I smell the skin where it is applied, I do detect a powdery rose scent along with faint vanilla. I do not smell jasmine or sandalwood at all. I have tried this a few times since I purchased it to see if I can make a final decision on it, but I have not yet. My next step is to try it at work and see what other people think. If I get positive reactions from it, I will probably decide I like it since we all know what it's like to be around someone who you think smells delightful, and if I get negative reactions, I will decide it's not worth the mental and emotional effort to force myself to make a decision. I'm not going to wear something that is off-putting to those around me. I'm now kind of nervous to buy other AB scents aside from the ones above because their description for this one was so incredibly off.

I have been a long time fan of Auric Blends' Egyptian Goddess and I recently became a huge fan of Love. Decided to order Sandalwood Vanilla as I go down the line of trying some of AB's various fragrances. I really enjoy this one for times when I want to feel cuddly and warm. For it's price, this smell is very complex. It smells sweeter in the bottle than it does on my skin. To me, it smells a little spicy with the top note being more creamy vanilla and the base note playing more with the earthiness of the sandalwood. It is also lovely when layered with Bath and Body Works "Magic in the Air". The two combined capitalize on the powdery, cozy vanilla note. BBW MITA body spray doesn't have much staying power but when layered up with the SV, it seems to stay put. Also, I like that the earthiness is emphasized when layered with Pacifica's "Spanish Amber". These Auric Blends scents are so incredibly versatile and cheap. Which is probably why I continue to wear their fragrances and have been for about 13 years now. Sandalwood Vanilla is the perfect fall/winter scent. It's reminiscent of curling up in front of a fire with a certain element of smokiness in the dry down. Will definitely buy again.

To start, I have been a long time fan of Auric Blends Egyptian Goddess. I bought my first bottle at 18 and, even at age 30, I find that I still love it. After reading the description for Love, I figured it would be a safe blind buy. Well, I just got my bottle and I am very pleased! This is a beautiful, subtle scent. Musky yet floral. It's a scent that stays close to your skin. I get the feeling, though, that it's like EG in the sense that if it blends enough with your natural smell, you might not be able to smell it all that well. This has been my experience after wearing it for a few hours. Other people definitely notice, though! We'll see if I get as many compliments as I do with EG. In short, I will buy again. But the beauty of Auric Blends is that, while cheap, these oil perfumes last FOREVER. So I probably won't need to replace this for at least a year.

A beautiful, romantic scent perfect for a date. Comes off a little strongly musky out of the bottle, but dries down to a slightly sweet floral that’s very relaxing.

I've been wearing Egyptian Goddess for over 10 years and I have yet to find anything else that I never tire of. It's cozy, warm and sensual. It's my signature scent. Egyptian Goddess blends so well with my body chemistry I forget I'm wearing it until someone tells me how good I smell! It is long lasting, subtle and appropriate for everyday wear. I bought the 1.87 ounce bottle over a year ago and since a little goes such a long way and I use that bigger bottle to refill my roll-on..I've barely put a dent in that bottle :). If you're wondering whether or not you should buy this, I say "yes, definitely!". If you want something subtle but warm. Musky yet not overly so. If you like Egyptian Musk scents, this is for you! Never gets old!
