Good. Elegant. Somewhat masculine. It smells of viburnum essential oil (soapy, sweetly cologney, herbal, with something that smells like an adhesive tape). Similar to Romance by Ralph Lauren, but without the roses and daylilies. Romance - flowers = Libertine. 4 lippies, because there is also a wafer/dirty sock note in the base that annoys me. But I really love first hour.
Akin to Trussardi Jeans, but 3 times stronger. Resinous, "red", feminine, for romantic occasions, not oversweeten. Cherry + resin + jasmine.
It's OK. Flowery, elegant, soapy, metallic, a bit watery, everyday scent. Lychee/Papaya scented green tea + roses + delicate daylily undertone+ "salty" note of marigold + smell of an adhesive tape (the same chypre note as in Libertine by V.Westwood) + masculine cologne. It's light, but can give a serious headache.
A dirty, wet sock filled with rose petals.
Burning tv's back + ink + fecal note + rotting canned pears and peaches. A sad, chemical "sultry freshness" of the 80-ties. One of the ugliest I have smelled.
Similar to Beyond Paradise Estee Lauder (which I adore) but without fresh, minty-cologney note. Essence is more creamy (possess the creaminess of Fragile EDP) Both fragrances Essence and Beyond Paradise are just like a day spent inside a stuffy orchid greenhouse. I detect only pink, purple orchids, jasmine and delicate apple-like note; there is no gardenia I know, which smells like candied orange peels + jasmine + weird champignons/earthy/cheesy note.
Lemon/Lime peel + wet cardboard + wet thong + delicate apple-like note. Strong, for choleric dynamic young girls, too popular. I don't think it's "light blue" - rather "loud chartreuse".
Beautiful fragrance. Bitter, green. Smells like Baltic sea, crushed stems of bulrushes, knotweeds, gypsyworts + sun-dried laundry + warm sea breeze.
So beautiful! Spacious, crystalline, clean, "teleporting" into other, parallel life worlds, so cold and bright, shiny. Smells of fresh ground black pepper + violets + lavender + skin of red apples (really). A must-have! I don't detect any citruses. Skin by Trussardi is similar, but warmer, more intrivertic and feminine.
Unique. Similar to Eau de Cartier. Dry and bitter, very light, not sweet at all. Smells like suede + lemon + green apple + cedar pencils.
It smells like a synthetic scented green grape candy + a little hint of the air freshner "Forest". Eccentric alien. Cold. Not even romantic. Asocial and "radioactive" fragrance.
Crushed stalks of dandelions + detergent.
Disappointment. It 's not a fresh "blue" scent, it's "yellow". Very synthetic, plastic. Smells like old "Nivea" cream + ginger note.
Cucumber salad + a few raspberries. No lasting power.

Rum + sweet ambre. Beautiful, sexy, joyful, spacious, teleporting into another space. Big thumbs up!! It is a bit similar to Le Baiser du Dragon by Cartier, but Le Baiser is much more sweeter vulgar and plain.
