A whisper of a perfume on me, hardly anything, washed out to the point where I am seriously doubting its freshness. And yet there is something to it that I half suspect I would like. There's a whiff of pineapple, a fleeting hint of it. Hells bells, I have to find me another bottle to try. Other reviewers attest to its strength, the spice, the musk. Not in my bottle, which came from an online …Read more

I've been wearing Courtesan for 3 days now, and having swapped for it unsniffed, I am happy to say that it's a real winner for me.


Like other reviewers have noted, it is subtle, but definitely present, with an average sillage that fades considerably in less than 3 hours, and then it becomes a subtle skin-scent.


Courtesan is lovely to me because …

Sadly, I couldn't get past the extremely sweet pineapple in the beginning. It was really intense on me.

I bought this fabulous perfume having never smelled it first! (Quelle Horreur!) I bought this fabulous perfume on the recommendation of some fellow Perfumistas whose opinions I value - some of them on various perfume blogs, and some of them right here on MUA.

It happens that I adore Courtesan. It is a beautiful yet subtle fragrance. There is something vaguely familiar about it, not …

One of the sexiest scents out there. It is a sweet spicy scent with notes of the bakery and apothecary. I get mixed spice, honey and vanilla. Lovely and unusual and doesn't get nearly enough love imo

Good Lord this scent is sexy! It certainly has the right name because I find this scent to be outrageously carnal and alluring. It is a floriental really, with top notes of fruit drenched in liquor and cinnamon with a flower bouquet heart and a soft peachy base. It features notes of: cinnamon, cardamon, clove, pineapple, red berries, bergamot, orange blossom, magnolia, jasmine, rose, sandalwood …Read more

This was my first head-over-heels-must-have fragrance...and it was because it was sort of a "tabu"scent....heady/naughty/sensual/spicy/sweet. It was everything I want in a fragrance. Very indicative of it's name....it is seductively beautiful to me. There is an under current of a dirty note as mentioned previously, that is mild enough that it just hints and does not overpower. …Read more

Not bad! Courtesan on my skin is simply cherry-sweet and powdery balanced, and with just a hint of cumin-like spice in its deepest heart. I now regret ordering such a small sample since I'd love to mist it on here and there and test-drive it on a grander scale. Interesting and memorable. Glad to have sampled, will most likely repurchase a larger quantity in the future.

Courtesan, made by the Worth Family, is perfectly named. I almost blushed when I first smelled it!! At first sniff, it smells like expensive makeup and perfume, and then *bang* it smells DIRTY. Dirty in a hot, sexy and almost raw way. WOW. It smells like a beautiful woman walking down an expensive street in Paris after having an "assignment" with the president.

I'm not hating on this perfume. However, it has the overly perfumed rankness of a young, inexperienced girl who is too brash for her own good, and doesn't quite know what she's doing. Or a stripper who does. (Sorry, I had to say it, this -is- a stripper perfume). It smells like something else I have smelled many times... like parties in the Northeast about 10 years ago. …Read more
