Skin scent that definitely smells like the beach - salty, breezy, woodsy, little bit musky. No sweetness or heavy floral. I like this much, much better than the Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt, and it lasts longer, too.

I have no idea why this stuff is so expensive at $125/3.4 ml, and the bottle looks like something you'd pick up at Anthro or American Eagle, but the scent is …

Hairspray. Sticky, alcoholish, 1980s from a clogged up squirt pump, fake generic floral hairspray.

Very nice, inexpensive ($15 at marshall's for 1 oz), fragrance. I'm calling it The Poor Gal's D&G Light Blue, because it smells very similar. It's lemon/citrus, cedar, musk,but without the fruity apple element that Light Blue has. It doesn't last quite as long, more like 4-5 hours vs all day, but it's also 1/3 of the price of Light Blue.

The bottle is …

Re-sniffed this today at a department store, and I remember why Ioved this soooooo muuuuuch 10 years ago.

Light, fresh, citrusy, cedary, appley, vanillay, in the best way possible.

Only drawback is the ugly bottle, but I can live with that.

Very light, fresh, non-soap, non-vanilla/gourmand, non-cloying floral. This works for teens to very mature. Starts off a teensy bit strawberryish, then the light florals come out, mostly violets/teensy bit of gardenia, but nothing in a weedy/wildflower way.

The bottle is adorable, and slightly pricey, but

Starts off VERY STRONG, and vanilla, orchid, sort of like a Poor Man's version of Tom Ford Velvet Orchid (except this is less expensive than TF, but still expensive). Then the patchouli comes out and brings something Very Sour/Spoiled with it - maybe the Jasmine? And it stays. Through a Shower. Through the Night. Into the Morning. Through another Shower and a Loofah. Very sour/spoiled (not …Read more

Smells more like tangerines than oranges, but it definitely has a freshly peeled citrus scent. Then it mellows to some sort of floral and sandalwood. It's nice, but reminded me of the old BBW Tangerine Dream or whatever it was called splash, and it lasts about as long as a BBW body splash.

Overall, inexpensive, not gross, but not outstanding enough to repurchase.

Beautiful, beautiful dark non-foody vanilla, tonka bean, orchid almost cocnutty fragrance. It's subtle, but smells soooooo good - for literally five minutes, then it's gone. :-(

Huge disappointment. After hearing so many good things about this, all I smell is Beach scented potpourri - the kind that has a lot of wood chips and comes in a bag from Wal-mart or wherever.

I know Jo Malone scents never last very long, but this faded to nothing super quickly, and just smelled like Ocean or Beach potpourri.
