An HG summer scent for me - I never thought it possible to combine aquatic with smoke, leather, and salt - but they did! Such an unusual and lasting scent! Some say this is masculine; I disagree. It is fresh and clean and really unique. Anyone who finds this too masculine can send theirs to me!

At age 53, I have looked as long as I can remember, for the perfect tinted moisturizer that would double as my foundation. This is my HG. #3 is perfect for my fair olive complexion. It isn't too tinted, gives my skin just enough of an even tone, light moisturizing, and with a little bronzing powder, I'm all set. I simply LOVE this product.

I love this scent. It is tart and lemony, with a hint of green leaves mixed in. This could easily become a signature scent for me in the warmer months, save for one thing. Like all citrus, at least on me, it just doesn't last. So sad... an hour? Two? Three if I'm stretching it. BUT.. super nice for a fresh blast of summer citrus right out of the shower. So nice.

I haven't written a review in ages, but this product deserves my time and energy.

I was hospitalized recently due to a severe allergic reaction. It was a nightmare of tests, blood work and 103 fevers. I was a mess.

When I was released from the hospital it was as though I had spent way too much time in the sun. My skin was literally burned and peeling. Worse yet - it …

Add me to the list of LOVERS of this scent. Sampling from a small sample spray - at first - it was an immediate flash to my love CSP Motu... with that wonderful salt water and seaspray smell... but wait.... something different here... a scent of a green eucalyptus type smell.... YUM

This is a complex ocean scent and it lasts and LASTS! A must have for ocean scent lovers

As per usual - the board goes one way, I go the other. I LOVE THIS SCENT!!!. This is quickly becoming one of my summer favorites. I love the smell of salt air and yes.. seaweed! This is truly a beach scent... and I suppose it really isn't going to appeal to everyone. But if you want to smell like the ocean REALLY smells like... not Coppertone, not island flowers, but truly how the ocean …Read more

As a lover of anything vetiver, this had to be on my list of scents to try. When sniffed out of the bottle, the cedar and woods come on strong and I wondered if this would be for me.

Upon application, although the woody top notes were the first to be noticed, I immediately detected my most loved vetiver, with just a HINT of lavender to soften and mellow.

The vetiver grew …

What a WONDERFUL scent! I received the vial as a goodie with an Ava Luxe order, and boy, what a wonderful surprise.

On first sniff - I get WOOD.. and lots of it. Not a cedar or pine so much as just a wonderful wood. Then at next layer, my friend patchouli sneaks up and says hello...

Ah.. the spice of pepper... and the clean fresh breathe of bergamot whispers from …

Have you ever sniffed a scent where from one minute to the next it is - love it, scrub it, love it, scrub it?

This was my experience with 31 Rue Cambon. What I can say, is that the longer I wore it the more I enjoyed it...

BUT... for the price, I should love every second. And I din't.

Boy - isn't chemistry a strange thing. I don't typically like fruits or musks - and yet I am strangely drawn to this one.

Out of the bottle I got straight blackberry jam... Then as it mellows and loses the top note, the musk.. a very feminine and non animalic musk rises and blends beautifully with the berry. There is something in this scent that takes me back to a …
