This oil is amazing. I always go back to it. It smells so clean and fresh. For sure one of my favorites.

Upon application this is a harsh jasmine. After it melds with your skiin about half an hour it becomes something akin to the Philosophy line of fragrances--very nice and clean smelling. It strangely bears a closer resemblance to resemblance to a mimosa scent (such as St. Barth) than a jasmine soliflore.
Overall, it is very nice but, given the price, there are lots of better options.

Child is a clean, musky, jasmine-y scent on the skin. I do not recommend sniffing from the bottle as it smells very harsh right from the bottle. On the skin however, its is transformed to a lush sexy skin scent. This one gets me many compliments. The roller does let out too much oil though so instead of rolling it, I dab it, as there is always oil on the ball when I take off the cap.

EDIT 2/22/13: HG! I love this perfume oil so much! I have always favored white floral fragrances and this has earned its status with me. Such a soft, pretty jasmine scent. guys really do go crazy over it! ;-)
As other reviewers have noted, this is a fragrance that either works for or against you. It all depends on your chemistry. For me, this works! I get TONS of compliments on how great I smell - really clean and soapy. It's a pikake floral with subtle musk and fruit undertones. I get a certain, slightly beachy, marine accord with this too that is NOT suntan lotion. I live in the high desert - a far cry from the tropics - and even in the middle of winter, the warm freshness this exudes on me is not out of place. It's a true all season, all occasion fragrance for me.
I have to laugh at the "furniture polish" comments because though I smell the citrus (neroli?) - on me, it translates into fresh - I can see how it could come off as furniture polish on some! Likewise the comments about it being a cheap deodorizer. It seems like a lot of the *great* perfumes (Joy, Chanel no. 5) have this same problem though. They work for or against you - if they don't remind you of your grandmother! (Btw, I would not characterize this as an old-fashioned scent - but it would seem that is entirely subjective depending on a person's memories of a particular fragrance). If you can. try before you buy, but for me, this one is a winner!

I love Child perfume oil . I generally don't go for oils or roll on applicators because I find them messy and there's wastage with the remaining oil left on the roller ball ....but the exceptions I make are for Child and for Kai .
( There was a time when I did not think much of Kai but my opinion of it has changed too. Soft green fresh gardenia and now I love it. )
As for Child - it may come across as a simple boutique perfume oil with nothing much more than seemingly pikake essence and white musk but I think there 's more to it than that. Mutli layered floral oils with a clean soaring creamy musk .
It's not quite pikake ,not quite gardenia on me but just light fresh sweet white floral oil and then a dry down of sweet clean musk. I read that some people get a banana cream pie smell in the dry down and yes, I get that too ! The banana cream pie aroma is quite subtle though. The banana smell may come from synthetic jasmine used . Who knows. Child is a bit of a mystery to me. Mystery always attracts.
What I love about Child is :
1. The mysterious clean and sweet floral scent that is subtle and makes you smell divine.
2.The fact that is is handmade with love by Susan D Owens - I sincerely hope she continues making Child like that.
3.It is a USA made product and I will support that !
So there is a lot more going for Child perfume and .......not just celebrity endorsement.

I LOVE child. i have been wearing it for about a year now and cannot seem to get enough! I also love that it's a roll on applicator. Such a beautiful & feminine perfume.

After reading about this scent for years, I'm shocked by how much I dislike it now that I finally have it. I don't get gardenia, honeysuckle, or jasmine at all. I just get a sharp artifically sweet smell with a touch of curry thrown in. If my "child" smelled like this, I'd make her go take a bath. Very disappointing.

Granted, I'm more of a skin care geek and don't have an educated "nose" but I love this stuff. To me, it's a concentrated version of my other HG, Kate Spade, which is all jasmine and honeysuckle. I will admit that at first, I wasn't sure if it would give me scent-induced migraine but happily, it doesn't. At the beginning, I was very careful NOT to over apply. But now, I slap it on everywhere. DH loves it. Obviously, it is a love or hate fragrance but for those of us whose chemistry works well with Child, it's a dream come true.

After literally years of wanting to sample this, I got the opportunity and it is... a huge letdown. I do not understand the appeal of this stuff - sharp, with a plastic quality to it that I cannot get past. The website lists it as a jasmine floral, but this is a very sad interpretation of that.
