I really like pink Sugar, and to me...this doesn't smell different enough to warrant buying it if you already own the original version.
I can see where some have commented on it being kind of hippie/herbally smelling....as that's what hit me first, then the french soap...then it fades. Dry down is "clean"...staying power is poor, sadly.
Think spicy orange creamsicle. Very mild, but longlasting. NICE !
I felt I had to speak up on this one, because I ALMOST didn't even try it based on some of the wildly exaggerated negative reviews I've read here. It's a really unique fragrance. Sweet, fruity and spicy. VERY nice. Staying power is good. I am not exactly sure if I "LOVE" it yet, but if you are looking for something different, this is it ! It's fairy exotic, and sultry...probably better for winter/evenings. Not because its "heavy" just because it's a little on the sexy side :) I haven't found that it "changed" on me, which is odd... because I seem to have that problem with MANY perfumes. I am overall very pleased with this. Disregard the harsh reviews on this one, they are inaccurate at best ! UPDATE: On me, this ends up with a very aquatic note hours after dry down, which I am not a fan of...still NOT horrible though. LOL
Just recieved in the mail today. IT'S wonderful :) LOVE IT ! Wish I could describe the scent, its very complex, to me not floral but creamy and deep. Vanilla, woods...eh, I can't pick out anything else really. Someone with a more educated nose, help me out here ! All I know is, it's a VERY SEXY scent. I hope my husband agrees :) It is nothing ALL like the original version IMO. The scent is very intense without being strong or overpowering. Doesn't have that powdery note to it that the original mist had. Which is a good thing. Smells very EXPENSIVE..Probably because it is the Parfum, and not an EDT. LUXE is a GREAT way to describe it... Taken from internet description : "Cashmere Mist Luxe Edition Eau de Parfum is a modern, enhanced creation of the original, concentrating on a selection of natural ingredients – the highest quality available in perfumery: Heightened notes of Watery Elements and Bergamot mingle with two Jasmine absolutes, Orange Flower, Ylang and Muget, enveloped by the creaminess of Moss, Blonde woods, Amber, Labdanum and Vanilla. The result is a concentrated impression with an unparalleled sensuous depth and texture."
OMG, I TOTALLY agree w/ 4mitchell, BELOW..lol, Baby powder with a hint of poo..I tried this a few years back and I just was stunned that I was constantly reminded of diapers when I wore it..My husband loved it, and just wearing it without closer inspection, it was fine, but I kept sniffing my wrists and thinking of diapers..I had a toddler at the time and kept thinking "maybe it's just me"...till I read the review below (thanks for that) I came here looking for a review on the LUXE version, I just purchased it online unsniffed :) I haven't gotten it yet...I am hoping when I recieve it that it has the scent my husband liked (he hates everything) but NONE of that diaper doodyness of the original version ! UPDATE:Just recieved LUXE version in the mail today. IT'S wonderful :) Wish I could describe the scent, its very complex, to me not floral but creamy and deep. It's a VERY SEXY scent. I hope my husband agrees :) It is nothing ALL like the original version IMO. The scent is very intense without being strong or overpowering. Doesn't have that powdery (baby poo) note to it that the original mist had. YAY !!!
Ewww..smells like aqua net hairspray on me. (????) At first spray...all I could smell was the scent of hairspray, then it developed a bit and I could smell the orange and chocolate, I was hopeful, but hope quickly faded,as it changed back to hairspray again, only now greatly intensified. Glad i got a sample first.

nice vanilla..but fades fast. I prefer the madagascar myself, which is more exciting, very complex and has better staying power.
Quite nice..but on me it faded way to FAST !!! pretty complex at firts..I smelled rose and gardenia initially..though they arent specific about what the 'florals" in it are. it faded to just a nice sweet non descript scent on me.
This stuff smells like the tangiest tangerine you can imagine..and thats about it unfortunately. It is too foody for me. Truly disapointing
I dont know what all the hype is about here. Why all the rave reviews ?? It does smell interesting in a toasted coconut meets sweet pipe tabacco kind of way..but thats about it. Its a bit of an odd combo I think. The coconut in it is nice though. But still I wouldnt want to walk around smelling like this.
Rich and exotic indeed !! I was hoping to love this one as the Garnet is my birthstone, and I do. I have to say that it is my favorite of all the sage machado oils. It is VERY complex and that makes it quite interesting !!!!
I smell the amber, but this turned on me a bit and ended up smelling like old perfume..ya know, like when it's sat too long ??
smells like cotton candy..but BARELY THERE. Maybe you can use this as a base for other scents..on its own it barely exists.
Smells of Vanilla and some fruity note and nothing more..pretty plain, but long lasting.
