Pikake Lei – This Hawaiian jasmine emits an enticing, fresh and sweet, heavenly scent. Catch a summery tropical breeze all day long by applying lightly to skin or hair.Pure Pikake with a hint of musk but the musk is barely detectable to me. A wearable white floral with a tropical beachy smell. I LOVE this. If you have Child or tried it but found it a little too much, try this. It's a much simpler, much more well behaved, much more low maintenance Child....and with a lower price tag and no smack in the face. I loved Child the first time I bought it, but the more I wore it the more I just did not enjoy it. I never repurchased it. Pikake Lei is not a headache inducer, You may think so for the first 5 minutes but just wait. Let it mellow and do it's thing. This is nice, very nice. Sometimes I layer this with Bobbi Brown beach and they play very nicely together.Not terribly long lasting, maybe 2-3 ours on me but it's easy to reapply if you get one of the roller balls and just keep it in your purse.

Oriental Musk – An enchanting scent; clean, spicy and sweet. As refreshing as a light, tropical mist drifting onto a palace balcony.This one was a huge surprise because I don't normally enjoy heavy musk and by the name, I anticipated it would be one but it was totally not what I expected. I don't even smell that much musk. It's very light, very clean smelling, I can't imagine this one offending anyone that you wore it around as long as you don't go overboard. To me this is a your skin but better fragrance, there, but barely there. I wish they listed what was in their oils. I can't detect any particular notes but it has a soft slightly fruity spiciness with the musk. Very clean smelling. A winner. This one smells really nice on my husband and for some reason, it is stronger on his skin than it is on mine. He loves the amber paste, that's his favorite. The best way to get these is order the samples, There is plenty in them so you can wear them for several days to make sure that you like them then order the larger sizes in ones you love.

Arabian Sandalwood – Woody, mellow and smooth with just a touch of sweet coconut and vanilla. Highly charismatic and irresistible on your sun-warmed skin.I love a good sandalwood. This is not one of them. I don't smell any vanilla or coconut. The first hour it is a scrubber for me. Woody, smoky, incense, everything I hate. After an hour or so, it is bearable and I do smell some sandalwood, but not in a particularly good way. This is more of a men's fragrance, not one I would ever wear.

Amber Paste – A warm, earthy, deeply sensual resin with a hint of sweetness and spice. Enhances meditation, relaxation and balance. Its enticing nature makes it perfect for men and women.This one is amazing. A 1 or 2 drops is all you need unless you want to scent the room. It is pure amber with maybe a hint of vanilla? Very warm, very long lasting. I don't get the incense, woods or smoke like some of the other reviews mentioned and this is a good thing, because incense, smoke and woods are not things I enjoy in a fragrance. In fact they instantly make them scrubbers for me.This is almost exactly like Regina Harris' Amber Vanilla which sells for $125 for 15ml. Of course the Regina Harris bottle is to die for and this one is really cheesy looking but for the price difference it's an easy choice. I have empty Regina Harris bottles and I bought the 1/2 ounce size for $28.00 which was enough to fill one of her empty, pretty cobalt blue bottles. A quick savings of 97.00. It is a paste so it's not easy to decant to another but it can be done.
