I hated this one badly! It just stank! It was very strong and chemical like. A bit marine like. I don't wear these kind of scents too well. My husband thought it was the original Aspen just newly repackaged. Nope! So wrong! I love the original Aspen though! So clean, light, fresh and outdoorsy.
I liked this on me. It was fun and upbeat. A bit loud, but not too overpowering. It came out a bit fruity and soft like. Usually I hate that. But this just worked. It's a happy-go-lucky kind of smell.
Strong and longlasting. Go easy when applying ladies! Didn't work for me. Too chemical like, very sharp, in your face scent. No softness here. Got a vomit-like feeling wearing/smelling this stuff. Potent! Hmm.....a good bug spray perhaps. On the right person, maybe. Then again, maybe not.
Middle of the road here on this one. It smells nice on my sis and on a friend I knew. On them it was airy and soft, fresh smelling and a bit floral. On me, I smelled like suntan lotion, not that that's really bad, but, not what I expected. I still like it though. I never can do anything really powerful so I stick to the softer perfumes and this one is light and uplifting. It's good for summer since it reminds me of the beach. UPDATE: I just got a two pack of this stuff. A small AND a big bottle, and out of my cheapie collection, this (and Jovan White Musk!) lasts the LONGEST! My husband and boys said I smelled really good. It is a nice warm scent. I still get the whole beach thing with this, but it's actually pretty on the dry down! I think I'll stick to this, at least for it's longetivity! The next morning I could still smell it! It's getting bumped up to a 4 from a 3. I can't wait to pair this with some nice scented lotion! Okay, once I had finished the mini, which lasted FOREVER, I went on to the bigger 2oz bottle. It smells slightly weaker and it doesn't last as long. I have to reapply it a few times throughout the day. Thank gawd it's cheap! Still a keeper, but I wish to gawd I could find the stuff in the frosted bottle! Now that was just SUPER STUFF! And where the heck is the lotion at?????????? LOVED that! Also, when I went out for my yearly dr. exam/blood work, everyone said how nice this smelled.
They changed the formulation didn't they? It doesn't seem as crisp and sharp as I remembered........It's softer, light, but fresh and clean smelling. It's still a winner for me. Definitely feminine and never loud. Very other-nose friendly. I think of spring when I smell this. My mom used to wear this all the time and we all loved it, which made me buy some. But I swear it's a bit different. Still good though.
Thumbs up here. It worked well for me, but then vanilla and musks always do. It's sultry, dark and rich, but not overpowering. It also stayed on awhile. Didn't care much for that Vanilla Musk though. Too boring and soft. Too plain. This is a bit seductive. Daring. Bold. Confident. Sexy. You get the idea!
Another favorite here! Soft, light and very feminine! Never overpowering. But, it didn't stay on me for very long, which really sucked!

I hope my mom liked this last Christmas. I thought it stank. But she likes these potent, rich, creamy, sultry, dark scents. To me it was a bit loud and in your face stuff. On the right person maybe it'll smell just right.
This is probably one of their best scents. It's light, fresh, crisp and pretty. Kinda outdoorsy, but soft-like. Not at all overpowering and it stays on awhile, too. My husband wears the men's cologne and everyone likes it. The men's is also light, not too loud like alot of men's colognes. Okay, I like this alot, but the more I wear it, it seems to fade quickly! So, the lasting power isn't all too great, but it is a nice scent! I also have the lotion and wear that, along with the perfume, and it STILL does NOT stay on that long! I nearly bathe in the stuff! Lasts maybe 30 minutes! And the lotion is thin and sticky that it leaves me dry!
This smells good in the bottle! NOT on me! It didn't stay on too long, either, which, in my case, was a good thing. On the right person this would smell nice, though. It was a sour-like smell on me, almost like BO/sweat/stinky sock. Now the men's version is very nice and a bit elegant!

I see so many good reviews here! But this just stank bad to me! Way too spicy! However, it did stay on for awhile, so that was good, I mean, not for me! I passed it on. I do want to try the Lilac one.
This is my favorite everyday scent! Not strong at all, subtle and clean smelling! It's fresh and pretty. I always come back to this one! It's also other-nose friendly. Never had any complaints with this one. Update: I have used up two bottles of this stuff, recently, and I have to say, that it stank horribly(yes, I still wore it)! I bought the 2oz(like the pic shown above) and noticed that it's darker, earthier, muskier and heavier than the stuff that's in the 3oz. In the 3oz, I LOVE it! It's a powdery soft floral musk! SOOOOOOOO different from the 2oz! UPDATE: I just don't like this anymore. It seems different to me and on me. It has an earthy spicy smell to it that I hadn't noticed before, lacking the soft cleanness that I had once loved. And it does not last as long as it used to. I guess my chemisty has changed? I now do better with Coty's Wild Musk and Skin Musk, both of which I used to dislike.
My mom used to wear this, along with two stinkies: Emeraude and Tabu. I would definitely choose this one over those other two! This is nice, soft and not overpowering at all. I also wore it and it lasted awhile.
This stinks bad. My mom likes this and that other stinky one, Tabu. I don't know which is worse. I guess on the right person it may smell okay, but I'm not sure. The bottle is nice, though. And it seems to last awhile on my mom.
My mom loves this stuff and it does smell nice on her. I've tried it and thought it wasn't too bad, just musky. It depends on the person I guess! It's very strong, so apply lightly. I could even smell it after I had washed my shirt! I do think it's better as it wears throughout the day, but at first............Well, not so much. Someone mentioned that this smells similar to Youth Pew? OMG, no way! Now that stuff really does stink! Update:I guess on some it does smell a bit heavy, but on me, all I get is amber. It's not bad, just not very complex. Oh, and I don't get the "HOOKER" vibe that others have mentioned. It's actually a calming scent on me. As I said, all I get is an amber powder scent. Slightly musky.
