I love this scent. I kept on testing it at the store before I bought it and I'm glad I did. It is a very sexy, noticeable scent which I like. I think it is better for nighttime than daytime. It has nice amber, woodsy tones but isn't too strong. Very good sillage and staying power. It isn't overly feminine and isn't floral at all. I like scents that have a slight masculine edge to it and this one does.
I sampled a tester today since it doesn't launch until 12/1. Overall, I was very underwhelmed. It smelled simply like vanilla but also with a musky almond scent to it also. It just smelled very much like the other BBW fragrances. I have a difficult time with BBW fragrances lasting on me. They disappear quickly. Nothing special in my book. Will not purchase.
I didn't like this compared to the other Lavanila fragrances. It has a very sharp note to it that I can't place. It was very unpleasant and strong. It reminded me of 80's fragrances. My favorite Lavanila is Vanilla Blossom. This one just didn't cut it.
This has a pleasant citrusy smell that is very unisex. It smells very clean. In fact, it reminds me of Jean Nate. The one bad thing is the staying power. It is gone very quickly. Couldn't smell it at all after about 30 minutes. Would not purchase for that reason.
This is very fruity. It reminds me of Hawaiian Punch. I think Escada has done way too many fruity scents. They all smell alike after a while. While not a bad scent, it wasn't very unique.

This smelled very ashy on me. Like burnt wood. Not at all pleasant. I couldn't stand it and returned it. I don't think I would like this on a man either.

This smells very beachy and tropical. I actually liked the scent very much. Staying power was average. The cost is very expensive considering you get such a small amount. It would take three of these to equal one regular size fragrance. When you look at it that way, the cost is about $70 which is expensive for a MAC fragrance.
At first spray, I thought I liked this fragrance. But, then it dried down to a very strong, powdery, old lady smell. It really was quite awful. I returned it.
This is a beautiful, sexy, sensuous fragrance. I can smell amber, a little patchouli and rose undertones. The rose is a nice rose though, not an old lady rose. This would be a great evening scent. Lasting power is very good too. I gave it a four instead of a five because it is so expensive! It is even more than Chanel fragrances.

This just smelled like a generic department store perfume. It has that strong perfumey smell that I don't like. I love Armani Code so I will stick with that one.
I had mixed feelings when I first smelled it but thought I would wear it a day to see how it wore on me. It never grew on me. On me, it has a very strong lemon and peppery smell. I didn't find that attractive at all and I couldn't wait until it wore off.
This is a very loud fragrance. It thought it was overpowering and smelled just like Tresor. This is the type of perfume that would make people want to get off the elevator a floor early.
To me, this has a very soapy, powdery smell. I liked it when I first sprayed it on but then it starts to annoy me after a while. It has a very cloying smell and it starts to irritate me. I think it is too strong too and may offend others,
I really love the scent but not as much as the original Be Delicious. This one is much softer and has more of a berry scent to it. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because this one fades really fast whereas the original Be Delicious (green one) lasts much longer.
I really tried hard to like this one because I love the other two Be Delicious fragrances (both the green and red bottles). However, this one is overwhelmingly patchouli. Plus, it has a very strong bug spray scent to it. The drydown isn't any better. I ended up returning it.
