I really had high hopes for this scent. I adore Kiels products and I looovee Cucumber so I thought I would love the Cucumber Essential Oil. When I put the fragrance on my pulse points I smelled a chemical based cucumber scent that was very strong and didn't smell natural to me. That is just my take on it--man made cucumber scent. For that reason, I wouldn't purchase this scent again. I have to say though, for someone that liked this--it would be the perfect summer fragrance if you don't mind smelling like a salad (which I don't). I am still on the lookout to find the perfect cucumber fragrance (I just really hoped that this was it).

Since my usual fragrance Angel is too heavy for hotter weather, I had been looking for a lighter scent for summer. IMO, nothing is more refreshing in the heat than the smell of cucumber. This essential oil obviously smells like cucumber, but there is also a slight sweet and floral edge to it. A tiny dab lasts all day and the little glass vial I purchased for about $12 should also last forever. A great value for a very cool summer scent!

I LOVEEE ITTT!!! If you're a cucumber lover, this is the scent for you! If you're not, you may like it, too. It smells like cucumber (obviously), but it also has a certain natural perfumy thing about it that you dont really get from just smelling a cucumber. :) Just a little dab behind the ears and on the wrists gives you a soft, long-lasting fragrance....PS: my boyfriend lovess it! ;)

This is a great scent--a nice cucumber fragrance without other strong notes to detract from it, at least to me.

This is a delightful perfume essence. it's light, green, very wearable and has a faint sweetness without being overly feminine (in fact this scent is often worn by men). The sweetness seems to be floral - lily of the valley, perhaps. The primary impression I get is of fresh green cucumber peel and seeds. I can't detect any trace of musk in this, but that just goes to show you how much YMMV! When I wear this, I get loads of compliments. I like to layer this with a tiny dab of Kiehl's Original Musk - the effect is light, clean, but somehow very sexy. Despite it being a light, green scent, it has very good lasting power and doesn't turn on me.

UPDATE: it seems my chemistry has changed since I first started wearing this. Where it used to smell fresh and light, I now detect a muskiness and a heaviness when I wear it. I still find it pleasant, but it's no longer the favorite it once was.

Ordered this from kiehls.com in the 1/8 oz size..it's a very nice light cucumber scent with a little lily in the undertones..very nice for anyone who doesn't like a strong or too floraly fragrance. I would recommend trying the smallest size as I did, even this will last a long time as you only need a light dab.

Packaging on the size I have is a very plain glass vial with black screw cap.
