I remember trying the original SpellBound in the original bottle. I kind of liked it. I appreciated the brassiness of it. It was complex and had an interesting vibe. I tried this new bottle the...

This review is for the new formulation of Spellbound, which comes in a standard bottle that Estee Lauder is using for a number of their classic fragrances. The new formulation smells enough like...

This is one of the fragrances I've been wanting to try for a while. I've not tried many scents before any formulation change took place, so all I know is what I can get now. I'm probably more...

I found the product in the new packaging was less fragrant and am really disappointed. But I found a website that is selling the original product. I would buy the older one.

There seems to be a lot of secrecy surrounding Lauder's revamping of their classics into similar bottles (ala Jo Malone). I was curious to see if they had been reformulated, which I was sure they...

This is a review of vintage Spellbound extrait, NOT the light greenish liquid above. The reviews below make me determined not to purchase the current rendition depicted above or any newer bottle...

There is something in this (or at least they way it smells on my skin) that I just can't deal with. The first hour on my skin lsmells like some sort of chemical you might find at a funeral home. It...

I'm a bit surprised by some of these comments. Has nobody ever heard of the fact that fragrances smell different when they react to the oils on different skins? I am one of those people who get...

This is by far one of my favorite fragrances. I love almost all EL scents with the exception of Pleasures. This perfume is very strong with a rich oriental scent. I do agree with the other...

This is absolutely one of my favorite fragrances in the world! Back in 2004, I was in my early twenties and was a counter manager for Estee Lauder. Of course, all of my friends were ooo-ing and...

I have really started to appreciate the beauty of Lauder frags but oh dear! Spurred in by reviews I bought this...smells just to big and floral and 80s to me, even though I think it was 1991. Felt...

After all the good reviews here, I went to the Lauder counter to try it...i can't tell you how disappointed I am. This is so awful. A disgusting, heavy scent with way too much incense.To me it...

This is my favourite EL fragrance after Youth Dew. Spellbound starts out lush, deep and smokey like the incense-smoke filled air of my favourite occult shop. Cloves and carnations. It melds...

One of my fall/winter favorites to warm up a cold day. A beautifully strong (but not overpowering) fragrance. Woodsy and oriental - awesome!

I am unashamed to say that to my nose, this perfume is a major fail. To me, many Lauder perfumes smell the same: powdery, aggressive florals that force their way down your throat and induce...

Spellbound has always been one of my favorite Estee Lauder fragrances. Sadly, when I worked for them it was not a top seller. It's so different from all their other scents, to me at least. It's...
