I love the bottle, the first thing that attracted me to this scent. It is simple and strong looking yet the color black gives it a mysterious quality, you don't know what's inside. Anyhow enough of my odd fascination with the bottle, I have been toying around with buying this fragrance for almost 2 years now! To me this scent seemed very grown up, sensual, urban, sexy, sophisticated and mysterious. Not something that I was ready to wear as I was still using teenager type scents. I still don't truly feel like this scent is "me" to be completely honest. But I wear it anyways as it smells so good. It is best worn on skin. I always spritz my clothes but that really doesn't do any justice. When sprayed on the skin it lasts all day and evolves into something that is truly your own. I love that this isn't overly sweet, musky or floral, it strikes the perfect balance between the two (so no headaches are induced). I'm a big fan of vanilla and this frag does it right. Though this is a sensual fragrance, I don't find it inviting, in fact it seems quite cold, but it is a fragrance that people notice. Nice strong feminine scent that is a good one to try if you are looking for your first "grown up" fragrance.

This is the nicest musk I have tried. I love Kiehls but have been searching for the long lasting musk of my youth. Having said that this is not it. What it is, is a beautifully balanced scent that you can live with. It is not overpwering tho' it hsd good staying power. the rose fades very quickly on me to a nice warm sexy smell. Not an earth shaker but nice to be around - will buy again
Cannot wear this, gives me terrible headaches after a couple of hours. I have tried a few times but get the same result. It really is a pity, funny thing I get headaches with SJP Lovely as well, so I think I am allergic to one of the ingredients.

Everybody raved about this so I got a sample... I don't understend why this is considered original and unusual... We've seen (smelled:-) this before. It is ok, but nothing special - flowers+musk

I tried this by accident a year ago and completely fell in love with this scent. I am a perfume junkie. I have received more compliments on this scent than any I have ever worn in my life. This is just a sexy, clean, erotic smell that is not disgustingly sweet like so many perfumes being sold today. I like sweet, but smelling like cookies and cake is not my idea of sensual. Actually, sensual, is the word that best describes Narciso Rodiguez. Men and women stop me when I am in elevators, grocery stores, and having my car washed to ask what I am wearing. I believe the notes in this scent are white musk, vanilla, maybe some orange and mild patchouli. It has a flowery smell. One of the women in my office always says that I smell like suntan lotion. I do not get that one, but to each his own.

Got a sample and this scent isn't for me - a little too heavy & cloying - I feel self-consciously overperfumed, like I might be annoying to people breathing the air around me.

This perfume is totally worth the price because a little bit goes a long way, and the scent lasts forever. I still have a sample from a year ago that I use on special occasions. I managed to find the large sized 3.3oz bottle for $25 on Ebay, so look there before having an anuresim over the price tag. This is a perfume for more "mature" noses. It's musky, sensual, and it will turn some heads. =)

Narciso Rodriguez for her is all musk, a bit too musky for me... When I wear it, I feel that I smell like a man! It reminds me of my old boss from Kuwait who used to wear a very heavy musky perfume! Not sexy or feminine in any way and I am sure that it could smell much better on a guy! Oh well, I bought this last spring, maybe I will like it better when I start wearing it in the cold weather...

Salesperson raved about this so I tried it on my skin; was sorry I did - on me very boring nothingness; maybe it's too musky for me but it's definitely not a perfume that I would bother buying

While the scent itself isn't something I would buy (I'm more of a sweet/fruity/floral person) both my mom and my best friend wear this and I love it on them. Great scent - very urban and sophisticated. Probably the best thing about this fragrance, if you like it, is its lasting power. You definitely smell it. Like instantly. And it lasts forever. Awesome fragrance.

This is SUCH an amazing musky fragrance. It is my HG fragrance for fall/winter or night. Kind of expensive, but totally worth it IMO.

i love the scent of the Toilette version better than the Parfum version, surprisingly. overall, a great scent though.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
Nothing special. I agree 100% with previous reviews, smells just like SJP's Lovely except Lovely is a hell of a lot cheaper.

It's not a terrible perfume but a little generic considering how the salesperson was raving about it's egyptian musk and everything.
It's a very light scent - a spritz on the wrist is hardly noticeable unless you sniff close to the skin, which is both a good and bad thing i guess. It's lasting power is ok (maybe a few hours) and smells like a fresh sporty, yet mild floral. I couldn't smell the musk and I'm one of those ppl who prefer floral orientals so that was surprising.
In general, I doubt I will buy this since there are so many other better perfumes out there for the same price point.

What a surprise this one was! For the first few years after this was released, I recoiled in horror when I smelled this. I quickly judged it as too powdery and too mature for me. However, as my tastes and attitudes about different frag categories has changed over time, I've come to appreciate scents that fall in the "woods" category. I finally gave this one a try and was surprised how much I liked it. My first impression was that it was very round, sensual in a modern bohemian way, I smelled the soft musk, vanilla and flowers right away. But as the scent developed, I was expecting it to deepen, turn warmer, muskier, sweeter, but I was surprised to find it grew lighter. The floral notes quickly overrode the musk and amber and it turned sharp in an instant. I was pretty surprised and kept trying it again and again. But I came to realize that is just how it develops on me. I was disappointed, longing for that round, warm, musky softness to come back. Despite it not working for me, I'm thoroughly impressed by how this scent developed like it did. Definitely unconventional. I personally find this to be much more sophisticated and complex than SJP's Lovely. I'll be trying the EDP to see if it delivers what I'm missing out on with the EDT. I'm conflicted on the rating. I don't care for it on me, but I can appreciate a well made scent and the value of originality. This one is unlike anything else I've tried before.

This is a nice clean scent, not astringent, not headache-inducing floral, not fruity or musky. Just clean. It's not so strong that it'll give anyone sneezing fits, but not barely detectable either, and lasts for several hours. The problem is that it's boring - you won't offend anyone with this, but you won't seduce anyone either. This might be good as a present to give to a woman undergoing chemotherapy, when other scents are likely to augment nausea, to help her feel feminine. I personally will stick to BPAL Manila. The bottle isn't particularly interesting or attractive, although I like the look of pink and black together.

I love the smell of grape hyacinths and bilberries, with a hint of balsam poplar. It's an "indigo"scent. But I hate the big brioche lying beneath. It's not sexy, it's "yeasty".

I received a sample of this with a Sephora order. I sprayed it on my wrist and my first impression was that it smelled a bit tart (I'm thinking it must be the orange blossom I'm smelling.) In fact, it reminded me a bit of Kai (which I find smells rather awful on me since it dries down to a rather sour smell.) It was rather off-putting, but as I was going about my business doing things around the house, I kept smelling it and kept sniffing my wrist. Up close, it smells just a little bit tart still on me, but as it dries down, it becomes a rather soft, slightly creamy floral. I find this fragrance sophisticated, sexy, sensual, yet at the same time still appropriate for younger women. It is strong in the sense that you can smell it on you, but at the same time, the scent is very subtle. I like it! I will keep testing it out on me until I run out of the sample, then will probably purchase a bottle. Lovely! :)

I find Narciso Rodriguez for her (the EDT) to be quite a contrast of things. It portrays innocence, youth, well-mannered behavior and purity (floral), but at the same time implies lust, animalistic behavior and something sinful (musky). It's as though the essence of NR was meant to be that of a young girl blossoming into a woman. It's beautiful, curious, and intense in feminine feel. It's a true work of art! Aside from the innocent feel of NR, I get more of the seductive, lusty vibe because that is more of what I'm looking for. The musk is what gets me; gives it an almost primal feel where I just want to roll around in bed with a lover and feel as feminine as I am. It is unbearably sexy and is probably one of the only fragrances I've smelled that has taken me to that level of imagination. Oh yes, it's a favorite! :) The flowers make it youthful, the woods make it sensual, and the musk makes it seductively mysterious. As for the notes, I find it hard to get past the muskiness, but I do smell amber, woods, and what must be the osmanthus. I like it in the summer, but it's at its best in winter. I cannot get over this fragrance! It's a breakthrough in the perfume world.
Notes as mentioned on Bois de Jasmine:
Honey flower, solar musk, orange blossom, osmanthus, amberlyn, vanilla, tactile musk, tactile woods, vetiver

I wanted to hate this so much that I successfully avoided trying it for several years. I gave away about ten of those little sample sprays without even sniffing them. I refused to have little scented ribbons tied around my wrist. I didn't like the bottles, I didn't like the dubious advertising picture of a twelve year old blond girl with heidi plaits, apparently designed to appeal to passing paedophiles. I assumed it would be a boring sugary fruity cheap smelling mess but, I admit it, I was worng. It's lovely - the combination of soft musk, woods and honey smells like warm nutmeg on my skin, the florals are quiet and elegant and, although the opening is a little sharp (orange oil rather than orange or orange blossom) it quickly settles into something striking, beautiful and also very comfortable. I have eaten my words and in future I will not close my mind to a product without trying it.

ohhhh how my dreams of loving this fragrance are shattered! on paper it sounds really delicious and sensual.....Honey Flower, Solar Musk, Orange Blossom, Osmanthus, Amberlyn, Vanilla, Tactile Musk, Tactile Woods, Vetiver......doesn't that sound yummy? but on my skin, an idential twin to SJP's Lovely. which is NOT lovely imo. i'm not really sure which note makes it so similar to SJP's, but something does. if i were a fan of Lovely, i'd be IN love with Narciso's.....since it is a bit more "refined" than Lovely. i wonder if the EDP would be less similar? guess i'll go to sephora and give it a spritz!
