I really like Dama very much. It is a soft and feminine scent that is perfect for year round wear. I also think this is a perfect daytime/work scent. It is soft and unoffensive. To me it smells of soft vanilla, powdery iris and oppoponax. I find it very similar to Plaisir without the gourmond cinnamon thing. It is absolutely gorgeous. I am contemplating a full bottle. I still like Plaisir better but Dama is equally beautiful in its own way.

I adore this scent! This is definitely one of my staples. I don't detect any grapefruit (which is good for me). To me this is a warm vanilla, lemon and cinnamon scent. It sounds like a strange combo but it is truly unique and 100% beautiful. I could bathe in this stuff. My only complaint is that it doesn't seem to last long enough on me. However, I have ordered the body oil and lotion as well so I'm hoping this will help. Gourmond scent lovers have got to try this. It is definitely FBW!
I adore this scent. It is a soft and feminine fragrance that is woody, creamy, clean and lightly spicy all at the same time. I have to disagree with others who have called this strong or assertive. I find it soft and unobtrusive. This is definitely FBW and I have just purchased my second full size bottle. If you like spicy scents but sometimes find them a bit too masculine, you definitely need to try BB. Its spicey and very feminine at the same time. A truly gorgeous scent!
I Love it!!!! Warm golden oak and sweet wood to my nose. The drydown is exceptionally beautiful! FBW for sure. This, to me, is one of Serge's best scents yet.
A soft feminine gorgeous fragrance. I find this has a very innocent and almost baby-like quality to it. Other times, I get more of the white heliotrope sweetness. The overall feel is always the same.... its very comforting and very sexy. Almost angelic :)
After reading about this, I fully expected this to be just a "so-so" type fragrance. However I am amazed how incredible this actually is. I love this scent! To my nose, I would classify this in the POTL type catagory in that it is an emotional experience to wear this. Its almost like when you put this on and catch a whiff, it evokes a very pleasant surreal feeling. This fragrance is very complex and has alot of depth to it. It is absolutely gorgeous from the very second it touches your skin to its gorgeous drydown. This is definitely a scent that is worth purchasing the full size.

This is amazing stuff! I purchased a sample because of rec's on the skincare board and am so glad I did! I have been using it for almost 2 weeks and it has made an amazing difference in my skin! I have been lucky and been able to use it nearly every night. I had to skip a night or 2 when my skin was feeling sensetive. This did cause peeling quite a bit but thats what gives the beautiful results! It evened my skin tone, has already lessened fin elines and my face is soooooo soft! I love this stuff and will be re purchasing!

I guess I am in the minority here. I purchased this because of all the rave reviews I read here. Unfortuately after 4 weeks of use, I still did not notice a difference. I was so hoping this would help with fine lines and red spots, but from what I can tell it has done virtually nothing. Im so bummed! Plus, although I have applied sparingly, this stuff dries up and kind of turns to something that feels like dead skin. Ya know how when you get that dead skin thing going after being in the sun and you have to exfoliate it off? this is what I have experienced on my face after using this stuff. It turns clumpy even though I hardly use any. Maybe I just got a bad batch or something but after this experience I still am searching for that one product that does what it claims to do.
What can I say about this incredible scent! It was love at first sniff! This scent gets me so many compliments every time I wear it. Its a gorgeous woody-floral that has wonderful lasting power in the EDT form. I can only imagine the parfum! I think everyone should try this scent! Its beyond words. I love it!
This fragrance is a perfect choice for cooler weather. Its a very nice amber-vanilla scent with a hint of creamy orange upon initial application. If you like ambery vanilla scents, this one is worth a try...definitely! Its gorgeous!
This is an absolutely beautiful addition to the L'Artisan line of fragrances. I agree with other reviewers who describe a biscuit-like note. When I very first sprayed this on, I instantly smelled a strong resemblance to Serge Lutens Rahat Loukoum. Its not "foody" per se, but lightly sweet and almost edible at first. It smells of a slightly sweet milky dough and when it dries down, I get a powdery cedar-type scent as well. Its very much like a more feminine Pasage D'Enfer once it dries down (imo). Very nice.

I can't stress enough how lovely this perfume is! To me it smells of almonds, vanilla and a hint of sandalwood and suntan lotion. I get many many compliments when I wear this. I absolutely love this stuff.
I received this in a swap from a lovely swapper and I am so grateful. I love this scent! To me it smells like a mix of Lea st Barth and CSP Harmonie Creole. Its so yummy! This scent really screams Autumn-time. It smells of spicy cider and caramel apples. Absolutely lovely! Now I want a full bottle!

I love this stuff! Very reminiscent of cream soda and root beer. It is a very beautiful, fun and unique scent. Very hard to describe, but I do agree with other reviewers who said it has a sasafrass smell to it. Very yummy!!! Lasting power is pretty poor, however like many CSP scents.
Hmmm...a very peculiar scent. My daughter says it smells like "a hampster cage". And ya know...it kinda does...but it smells good at the same time. Anyway, this is a unique fragrance. The jury is still out on this one.
