I have to agree completely with Gother who left his/her review in 2013. This fragrance lasts at most an hour. For one who detests fragrances that others can smell from a distance and prefers subtlety in fragrance, makeup, and clothes, this is just too darn subtle for me. I succombed to the hype, having spritzed it on at the uber chic boutique in my area, Kima Zabete. I think I was buying into …Read more

I'm a man and I love this scent. At first I was concerned because I thought it leaned more toward the feminine. However, with a man's chemistry, it's something all together different. I love the bright opening that transitions into a woodsy sent and then dries down to incense with hints of powder. I receive numerous compliments and I'm very seriously thinking about making this …Read more

I came back to buy another Byredo fragrance when I was visiting Warsaw (I cannot recommend an excellent perfume shop Galilu in Mokotowska Street with very helpful and knowledgeable shop assistants) and I was toying between this and Seven Veils. As SV was sold out, I came out with a very generous sample and an oil version of this one (I was travelling with hand luggage only and in the end decided …Read more

Not my scent. The Barney's sales associate told me that Gypsy Water was one of their most popular scents. I sniffed the bottle and it seemed promising, but on me I smell a brief burst of lemon that transforms rapidly into incense. It reminds me of what my car's seatbelts smell like at the moment, which absorbed the CK Obsession my SO had sprayed on his shirt. If that sounds like your …Read more

This was my first incense-based fragrance. I bought after a long search and I fell in love with the incense heart. However, it is quite a complex scent, with a head of lemon an pepper and a base of amber and sandalwood.

It is quite a heavy, winter fragrance. I also love the round, simple bottle and the black top. However, I find its lasting power slightly weak fir such an expensive …

I have heard great things about this fragrance and it was recommended to my by the SA after I mentioned I was looking for something light and casual for everyday. I sprayed a couple of fragrances on and I was drawn to this one. It smelled soft, like sandalwood with an interesting twist. However, I sprayed more on later in the day, and the scent was overpowering and literally made me nauseated. I …Read more

I would define Gypsy Water as a fragrance for the fragrance shy, as it is very feeble, almost undetectable I'd say, and discreet.
This alone makes it a very elegant fragrance, if only... I could smell it!
Byredo house defines this as a Woody Aromatic fragrance for women and men (it's more masculine than feminine). Similar to a cologne, just a little bit deeper on the aromatic …

Very light and transparent on me, almost like scented water. If I splash it very generously, it becomes deliciously radiant, reminding me of Laura Biagiotti's Tempore Donna minus the chocolate note. It's a peaceful scent. I sometimes wear it to bed.

Masculine, powdery sandalwood with leather notes. Not bad, but I don't care for it. It's almost old fashioned, like something a grandfather would wear from the 1920s. I like the oily neroli-based colognes from that era, but this one is dry and powdery with a sandalwood edge that turns me right off. Not remotely something I would wear voluntarily, while not being offensive.

First of all, let me say “thank you” to the wonderful MUAer who suggested this review today (Spring Pansy, it’s you!). I got this bottle during spring last year, wore it a lot then, and just neglected it during last spring and summer. But I am glad I am wearing it today… early fall afternoons are still good for it!


Why am I saying all that? I will explain if you keep on reading …
