I wear this because I don't want to smell like a candy bar or a teenage girl. The EDP lasts for hours. Sexy yet classy. Worth the bucks.

Very boozy and spicy and even soapy with lots of depth. Basically it's warm Amaretto, and jasmine on my skin.
I'm on the fence with this one. I like it but, I'm not in love with it.
Reminds me of Creed's Jasmin Imperatrice Eugenie, but I like Jasmin Imperatrice Eugenie more. They both have that spicy base with boozy jasmine on my skin.

This is my end-all be-all perfume. Every single time I wear it people stop me to tell me they love the scent and ask "what is it"! I'll have strangers stop me in stores. LOVE it!

First, I must say that I will probably not wear this frag myself for another 10 to 15 years. It is veeery mature, full bodied, spicy, and almost androg. That being said, I totally adore when my gramma (my very jazzy gramma) wears this. She gets tons of compliments and all her daughters (my aunts) have gone out and bought for themselves. It is complicated with many notes. Most people who do not like it say they cannot stand the tobacco. I do not find the tobacco to be overwhelming. The dry down is a spicy floral. And only a dab will do.
My gramma is very picky in fragrance. She finds one she likes and wears for years. Before this it was Givenchy Amarige. She has turned down: Juicy Couture, CK Euphoria, D&G Sicily to name a very few.
The take away: very distinctive, spicy and mature. For the woman who has everything.

I see two entries for the Dragon here on MUA and I presume this is for the pure perfume version, which IMHO is fantastic. I actually like both pure perfume and eau de parfum, however, I tiny bit prefer pure perfume to EDP. Unlike EDP, pure perfume does not open sharp and remains soft and yet lingering on the skin all day long. I have not gotten any bad comments on this one, that it's strong, unpleasant, etc. On the contrary, I received tons of great compliments, especially from men. I have read reviews where this fragrance is compared to Angel, etc, but I completely do not get any resemblance. I dislike Angel and I love Dragon. The only fragrance that this slightly resembles (and very slightly), IMHO is Prada's Amber (white box). But even that is a stretch. It is a very expensive fragrance, if you buy it in the store you can expect to pay $375 CAD for 30 ml pure perfume, but on Fragrance X, 50 ml refill pure perfume (if you don't care for the fancy bottle) is $100 CAD.
I must admit I wasn't too crazy about this fragrance at first, as I tried EDP which tends to open a bit sharp, but it settles very quickly into a gorgeous fragrance and if you want to completely avoid the sharper opening, then go for the pure perfume. This will be a staple in my collection!

I'm surprised by some of the reviews here. This is definately not your floral that most MUA'ers love. I'm not into notes but It's a soft sweet spice. I can definately appreciate this.

I appreciate aggressive orientals (I love Must de Cartier) but I don't get this one. Maybe the good stuff comes at the end... I did not stick around for that -- had to wash it off immediately. Apparently my nose is not sophisticated enough for this Cartier frag as I thought it smelled horrible. Can't imagine anyone deliberately putting this scent on with the intent of a positive impression.

Ha, what polarized reviews!
I picked up a sample of this and have worn it four times now. It seems to work for me. I enjoy the spiciness. It's not overwhelming on my skin. I don't think it will ever be a favourite but I'm enjoying it too much to be without it. I'm on the look out for a bottle.

When I brought my nose to my wrist, the fire knocked me back so violently I nearly snapped my own neck. Kiss of the Dragon is no misnomer, although it feels more like Dragon's Breath...hot (not to be confused with warm, because warm connotes a certain sense of comfort) and fiery like the goddamn flames of Hades licking at my reeling senses. I am at the vast hall of a Chinese Taoist temple where the suffocating smoke from 100,000 burning joss sticks have kicked both my trigeminal nerves and lacrimal glands into a feeding frenzy. Smack in the middle of the hall, a huge pot of Chinese medicinal herbs is brewing at full steam, emitting the foul poison of herbal dregs. In the meantime, Dragon's Breath blazes a fiery path through my nostrils, fries my brains and continues its journey of destruction down my poor esophagus, triggering a physical reaction akin to a heartburn. I am strapped to a chair and trapped in this purgatorial chokehold, in the company of a scorching scrubber I utterly gag to be rid off (brutally tenacious, so what else is new?). I get zero floral and all smoke and spice. Never again.

Smells like marzipans lying in an old coctail cabinet (note of wet old wood) + angelica jam + earthy note. Too sweet. Try Scent Intense by Costume National - it is lighter and more sophisticated.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Black
Le Baiser Du Dragon is one of the most gorgeous parfumes ever. First, the bottle - deep amber liquid, elegant black and red design reminiscent of classic Chinese art - and of course a dragon's fang inside!
Then, the scent. It's hypnotic, elegant, mysterious mix of spice, wood & a touch of exotic flower.
* Amaretto, Gardenia, Neroli.
* Iris, Musk, Cedar, Bulgarian Rose.

I'm on my second bottle of this gorgeous fragrance. The first bottle was the pure perfume, a gift from DH when it first came out. I recently purchased the EDP cheap on line, and I am not disappointed. Lasts just as well. Don't know the exact notes, it's described well by others. But this is a beautful oriental fragrance that lasts and lasts. It is very rich, and it smells very rich. I have really dry skin so I need a heavier fragrance. This seems to work well with my chemistry and I get lots of compliments on this one. This is my favorite fragrance from the Cartier line. And it doesn't smell like all the other ones out there in today's market, you know all the fruity-meh-florals. I'm getting tired of those! This one is so French and elegent.

The description of the fragrance in the reviews below seemed exactly what I liked: a sweet and warm oriental with almond tones. Well, I did smell the almond tones for about 10 minutes. Then there was nothing on my skin, just a bittersweet (which soon turned completely sweet) smell. Incredibly faint although I sprayed 2-3 times, was gone in an hour max. There was nothing after an hour on my skin, and while it lasted my husband and I both rated it as the worst out of 4 perfumes I tried that day (the others being cinnabar, knowing and pleasures delight by EL). Definitely not going to buy this one.

I was never too keen on the bottle, the design just doesn't appeal to me. I like the fact that the bottle is quite heavy though. I have the small 30ml one.
On first application it was like a dry version of Angel. Without the chocolate and sweetness. Perhaps it's the patchouli.
This fragrance is way too heavy for me to wear though, not really me at all. I sold the perfume for a bargain price, I hope the buyer enjoyed it.

Really like this. A LOT! I dont feel that I can wear something like this all the time, but I might anyway. Very sexy, very feminine, and in a class of its own...which is how I would view the wearer of this wonderful scent. I dont know about everyone else but on my body, with my chemistry, this could never be a mans scent! NOT EVEN CLOSE. I believe I saw someone say that, must be their chemistry. Andway this is complex floral gourmand oriental. HAHA! Really, though...it has it all and describing a fragrance does nothing, you have to smell it on your body. I really dont see just anyone wearing this, maybe could see about 1 for every 50 women seeming right in this smell unlike all the popular sugars, allures and euphorias that everyone and their Aunt Lillian are wearing. Not that they are bad, they are actually good, just kinda boring to me. Dragon is unique, doesnt cater to everyone, which is why i love it.
EDIT : I just tried the edt. Totally different. It starts a bit masculine...quite a bit. It dries down though and does smell good but not as rich as the edp. I can smell something spicy citrus with the edt i believe. And then it is gone. Lasting power for edt is nonexistant. GO for the edp!

I love this scent! I have a lot of Cartier perfumes and this is one of my favorites. So glamorous. My skin must do really good with oriental and strong scents because I always get compliments when I wear them. I'm so glad! :)

This is an absolutely beautiful perfume - incensy and spicy, with a sweet almond body to it and just a hint of floral. It's rich without being overpowering, but on the other hand it just screams hypnotic power and class. I'm totally in love with it, particularly because I don't think many people in my age group reach for it. It's mysterious, sexy, and just a little unusual. I love it.

Le Baiser Du Dragon EDP... I've received this as a reco many times based on my other fall/winter perfume faves. Well today, I finally tried it, and Wow! What a find. Classifed as "Oriental Woody" by osmoz.com, smooth as velvet, and very well made, I will be purchasing a full bottle of this today -- seriously. It has everthing I adore in a fall/winter fragrance. It's exotic wood with a touch of incense on me (must be the benzoin). I get very, very little of the almond, and that's fine with me! Also, this is officially the first scent that has a distinguishable Vetiver note that I find appealing. While I believe Le Baiser du Dragon is meant to be a "evening" fragrance", it's so smooth, I will be wearing this to work. This is truly a welcomed addition to my perfume collection. 5-lippies!!! Advertised Notes: Top note : Amaretto Accord, Neroli blossom, Gardenia, Middle note: Iris, Cedar, Musk and Bulgarian, rose for the perfume, and Base note : Vetiver, Patchouli, Benzoin, Amber

I think this is a very pretty fragrance. The first time I wore it, all I basically smelled was almond, but now not too much. The top & mid notes are the best, but the drydown for me, not as exciting. I haven't gotten any compliments on it yet, as I have from my other scents, but it is feminine & classy. It is softer than I am used to, but some women may like that. Wish that first hour would last longer...
EDIT: I've worn this pretty much every two days for the past few weeks, and it doesn't excite me, it's pleasant, but not as good on me, as probably it could be on the right person. It's weird, when I smelled this originally when it first came out, it smelled quite almondy to me, now it seems more floral. It's pretty, but not quite me, I think. Doesn't last long in the EDT strength, for me anyway. EDIT: I realize that I had initially smelled this in the EDP, and I bought the EDT. There definitely is a difference. The Edt seems to be more flowery, and less almondy & incensy. Phooey!!

Le Baiser du Dragon EdT is a very special kind of passion bottled.
Equally intimidating and voluptuous.
Wild woods and the power to fly...
Vetiver, neroli, patchouli and an exhausted lover's breath breath-like vanilla base that couldn't be softer...
The best it smells the morning after. Lingering in my hair it stirs up the most exciting memories...
