Oh, man, this was gross. Saw this in a CCO, and I was all excited to be able to try it out. My boyfriend was pissed that I did, and so was I. It turned into some sort of baby powdery, gross, cheap scent on my skin. Like someone else said, it smelled like Mr. Bubbles! I will say that it has great staying power, because I immediately found a restroom and tried washing it off, but it lingered …Read more

Sexy, dirty, sensual, dark, deep ~ yet not overbearing or headachey. I simply LOVE this. This would work for the rest of winter as well as spring evenings. It has a hint of a floral, but it isn't overly sweet. It makes me feel absolutely fierce and sexy. It is most definitely feminine and this is one of the most unique fragrances I have ever tried. I am going to try and purchase a back-up as …Read more

this is my go-to fragrance for a gritty, urban night out. my friends and i call it "ripped fishnets" because it has :just: the right hint of edgy and dirty to it. the top notes of violet and ylang-ylang kind of hit you over the head but it dries down into something much more subtle and wearable, yet still cold, floral, and slightly unapproachable. i love it by itself or layered over my …Read more

I just purchased this based on Annie's review on Blogdorg Goodman. I have never gravitated toward violet fragrances but I love chypre and her review of Jolie Madame got me hooked...one of the best purchases I have ever made. So anyway, I bought Asphalt Flower based on her review and so far I am not disappointed. When I first put it on I thought maybe I made a mistake and wasted my money but …Read more

This smells like Mr. Bubbles bubblebath circa 1990. With a slight hint of dirt/leaves? SO if you want to smell like you just rolled in the dirt and jumped into a Mr. Bubbles bubblebath, this is the scent for you. Seriously though...that is what it smells like. lol

I totally agree with the review below me. I bought this on an impulse too because the SA just loved it and had me smell of it. (Don't they "just love" everything they sell?) I loved it too!

It has a funky scent. I really like it as well as the name. I think that for around 1/3 of an ounce, $20 is a little steep. The price is OK, I just think MAC was ripping me off by …

I just picked up the scent as an impulse buy at the MAC counter. I never would have noticed it, but the SA pulled it about and told me how much he loved it. I just took one sniff and had to buy it.

$20 is super cheap. It smells like a cold violet, but it also has a licorice/anise vibe. It really smells like the season.

glossy violet and iris petals, vanilla and patchouli …

Honestly, this really smells like Violetrix. I know because I have Violetrix. Violetrix was one that HAD to grow on me - I did not like it at first. However, I really enjoy the scent now. It is one of the more unique scents that I own. Asphalt Flower is probably the same way - you might not like it at first, but boy can it grow on you! Asphalt Flower, like Violetrix, is a cold, somewhat …Read more

I purchased this product online against my better judgement after reading the reviews. It smells awful and very cheap. There is somewhat of a powdery scent to it and some violet hues, but there is some loud cheap smell that is over powering. This is not a light flowery scent at all. This is going right back. My nose is still recovering. I think of Obsession or some other loud scent when I smell …Read more

Love, love, loved this in '99 when it came out. An oil perfume that really does smell like dirty violet - almost leathery. Reminds me of a wonderful time in my life when I first met my (now) husband, slaving away in a bookstore together and trailing this sillage of dark, flowery goodness...
Word is they're bringing it back for Fall '09, and this time I will stock …
