I actually do like this scent, but I can't say that I LOVE it. It's a white floral and I could detect lily, jasmine and something that smelled like it could be gardenia. If you like your florals almost crystal clear, this would probably appeal to you. It's a smooth, elegant scent and has nothing really unusual or "dirty" about it. However, the same qualities that make …Read more

<p>After sampling this scent at Sniffa 2007, I finally splurged and bought a bottle this spring. I'm so glad I did! Normally tuberose and I do not get along well(Fracas being the notable exception), so I had been reluctant to even try this scent.</p>

<p>However, on my skin, I get mostly gardenia and something ever so sweetly green from this perfume. I get a …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Sinfonia di Note - Poudre d'Epices

<p>The longer I wear this scent, the worse it gets. I felt as though I was racing through the circles of Dante's Inferno as it headed for the drydown. This scent starts innocuously with a burst of floral aldehyde. As it starts to dry down, I notice a hint of pepper - that's as much spice as I got. For the most part, this scent morphed into a sour green scent with occasional …Read more

<p>*shudder* Oh, I just get the shivers when I think of my experience trying this scent! I got a sample from Beautyhabit. From the description, I expected orange blossoms, citrus and other white florals. I love citrus, I love orange blossom and even though I'm a bit of a white floralophobe, those notes generally like my skin.</p>

<p>From the descriptions of …

<p>I didn't expect it, but this is definitely my favorite of the Sinfonia di Note line so far. The more I wear this scent, the more I like it. While it has a gourmand touch on my skin, it really isn't a super-sweet, overpoweringly dessertlike scent. I get the feeling from reading other reviews that this scent must be very different on everyone who tries …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Sinfonia di Note - Saveur d'Artichaut

<p>Hmmm...this is a rather unique one. I had to try this artichoke-inspired scent a couple of times before I felt as though I could really describe it. It's a very earthy scent and as I wore it, I could also detect densely green and herbal notes to it. As it dries down, it seemed a little rough, but I still like the overall effect of the scent. While some earthy scents seem a …Read more

<p>I generally love citrus, so I did have reasonably high hopes for this scent. It ended up being a slightly sharp, rather ordinary orange, though. I was somewhat disappointed. The sinfonia di Note scents sound lovely from their descriptions, but they just aren't doing much on my skin.</p>

<p>Ecorce d'Orange starts off as a juicy fresh orange on my skin. …

*Ugh* I loved Safari, so I wanted to like this scent. Like at least one other reviewer, I had heard that this scent bore some resemblance. when I tried it, though, I found myself deeply disappointed.</p>

<p>The vanilla and patchouli in the base give the scent a warm feeling. I also detected black currant - however, warm black currant mixed with vanilla and patchouli can …

<p>Like many on the frag board here, I jumped right on the chance to get a set of samples for the new Seven Skies scents. All of them sounded fabulous to me, and I couldn't wait to try them. Chelsea Girls, with its promise of an intoxicating, seductive scent blended around the scent of rose, especially called to me. I'm looking for a nice, sexy fall/winter …Read more

My second foray into the Sinfonia di Note samples fared slightly better than the first, but it's still no great shakes. The ad copy at Luckyscent describes this as a sexy but playful scent. I love sandalwood and I had wonderful images in my mind of what a musky sandalwood-floral scent could do. It sounded like the perfect date night scent.</p>

<p>Sadly this only …
