From CSP: "A delicious combination of ripe and juicy fruits with tropical flowers resting on a comfortable background of sandalwood and musk."
Mora Bella is an okay fragrance. It's forgettable, but at least it's not offensive. I wish they had not paired the strawberry and raspberry with jasmin, and then contrasted the citrus top notes with a sandalwood base. Too much going on, and that's why it's not particularly memorable as a fragrance.

I really like this perfume. There is something very mysterious about it. I don't think it smells cheap at all, as others have said. The dry down of Mora Bella is very deep, and rich smelling. This is very fruity (blackberry, cherry), with a soft musky dry down, and hints of the fruit at the end. This was formerly known as Fruit Savages. Their fragrances aren't annoying and fake smelling. They're very subtle, but you'll get a lot of compliments. I also highly recommend Comptoir's Vanilla Abricot fragrance - beautiful.
By the way, Trish McEvoy #9 is a copy of this perfume, not the other way around.

Quite refreshing fragrance of lemon and berries which actually smells very pleasant. What I'm not so fond of with this fragrance is that it's like a cologne...kind of goes on like scented water and doesn't last very well at all.

As someone else already mention Mora Bella smells cheap.Lately i've reviewed Harmonie Creole and Aloha Tiare and they have much more depth and in the case of Harmonie more intrigue.But this one is what i think of the company,hem ...cheap.Still i give it 3 lippies(maybe i feel generous today)for the bright lemony zingy opening,that lifted my spirits.Then you get of course the blackberries,and it's not better or worse than all the other perfumes than the other reviewers mentioned.Another saving grace is the clean and soft sandalwood on the end.not artificial CSP vanilla to exhaust us,thankfully.

I get so much from this scent (citrus, pepper, sandelwood, greens, berries) It does smell best on fresh clean skin and always shake the can/ bottle before you start spraying. It is a gorgeous very unique scent (at least to me). It not too sweet at all. I'm looking forward to what SO says, not sure he'll take to it. It's something I'll probley wear when I just want to have a clean fresh smell and only a day scent for sure. The fun and real desire of the fragrance is gone in less than 15 minutes. Not worth wearing with the price. I don't LOVE the end result of Mora Bella, and is another reason why I sprayed this so many times today (Love the 1st and 2nd part of this scent, though). Seriously want to spray it right now. Mora Bella is worth a shot but I wouldn't buy it at full price, ever, it ever again =(

A berries and cream scent, sweet but not nauseatingly so, with a nice juicy tang. I want to lick myself.

I'm in love. I have a bottle of this on its way, and I am literally counting the minutes.
This smells like Trish McEvoy Blackberry and Vanilla musk, but there are some additional notes I can sniff out:
Blueberry and Bergamot. I love blueberry just as much as blackberry, and it's hard to find that note in a perfume, especially done well. As for bergamot, it's a known anti-depressant and is THE reason I used to use Aveda Shampure even though it was hell on my hair. It smelled like bergamot.
There's also something else that sets this apart from other berry scents: it somehow smells clean w.i.t.h.o.u.t. (thank goodness, because I *hate* this) marine, aquatic, ozonic.
Oh, I love this one. I love it so much. I wanted to eat my arm off.
If CSP Amour de Cacao is Cocoa Puffs, this is a berry breakfast cereal in the same vein.

Mora Bella opens with a sweet blackberry note. It's a nice and juicy fragrance, feels light and uplifting on me. Juicy fresh fruits joined with some vanilla? dance of joy greeting the sun and life. I really like it.

The blackberry in this jumped out at me immediately. Very feminine and light. I do agree with other reviewers that this is too much like Trish #9, Philosophy Falling in Love, and MPG Eau de Mure. If you own one of those three, pass on this one.

RIS, I had read the reviews for this, and expected to not like it so much. My nose isn't as discriminating as some of the other reviewers, but I do smell a light, fruity scent at first. The dry down though, is heavenly. To me, its very warm, sunny, comforting, like a nap in the shade on a warm breezy day.
I'm not sure I would purchase, so darned expensive, I will probably seek an etailer dupe.

Oh, wow. I lost interest in CSP a long time ago, but I discovered Mora Bella when the SA at Bendel's sprayed this on me. As someone who dislikes citrus fragrances, I never sought out the original Fruits Sauvages, but this is truly lovely. It's a bit reminiscent of my beloved L'artisan Mure et Musc, but much fruitier, crisper, more citrus-y. I like it much more than fruity blackberry musks (Trish #9, Mure et Musc Extreme) because of the added sparkling citrus and woody notes, which avoid the "rotting fruit" effect. Also, amazingly enough for a citrus fragrance, this has tremendous lasting power--I still smell it strongly on my wrist almost 24 hours later. Notes: Pomegranate, sandalwood, musk, lemon, raspberry, blackberry, bergamot, jasmine, Marvel of Peru.

As with all CSP fragrances, it is pricey, but if you enjoy fruity, berry like scents, this is a good one and has staying power.
Try before you buy though, as it can smell MUCH different on you, than in the bottle.

I think this is really nice. A vanilla/musk/berry combo. The only problem is it smells like every other fragrance in this vein like Philosophy Falling in Love, L'artisan Musc Mure and Trish. It's pretty though.

The original is a masterpiece. I don't like the new formulation.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
Light, sort of tart berry that gives me the impression of grapefruit. I can't detect the sandalwood or musk until the dry down. It's a great blend. I like how delicate and airy this scent is, great for warm weather.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I didn't like it a bit!!!Smells like cheap men's cologne.
All those delicious things that are suppose to be there...where are they???
SORRY,I confused it with other CSP!!
Mora Bella actually not that bad!

A great scent.
This is the new name of CSP Fruits Sauvages (new Eaux de Voyage line), but, for what I can tell, the scent has also been slightly reformulated. It has a stronger berry note than before, less citrusy but still very fruity, with some sort of "effervescent feeling", warm and comfy, very nice. And the best part: the lasting power has greatly improved! Update: unfortunatelly, the lasting power and even the scent itself seams to vary from batch to batch...
