'Citrus chypre' = how do I get it on my husband?
Purchased

For context: I've been wearing this long enough to get to the heart but not the entire drydown. I love citrus scents and was totally willing to use my 20 percent discount to pick this up, because there were no retailers where I could smell it live before buying. I'm glad I did, although it reminds me distinctly of Eau Sauvage, but minus the disco -- and that's probably reason enough to wear it, since I always wish Eau Sauvage smelled less like the seventies. The chypre qualities of this fragrance make me think of it as a masculine, and I have no problem wearing them, but it would be ten times better on my husband.

Classic

Not sure if this is the same sample I got. Mine says Modern Muse but when I searched it this came up. Its by Estee Lauder. Anyway, this perfume has a great classic smell. Like a Chanel or something. I really enjoyed it.

I got this in one of my first birchboxes and wanted it ever since. I finally took the plunge and I'm so happy with it! Definitely recommend.

At first I didn't like this perfume I thought it was way too strong. But after a little while I actually liked the scent a lot. It lasts for many hours I really love that you don't have to keep reapplying. Now I just have to save up some money to buy a bottle since I used all of my birchbox sample.

Amazing scent!

This is probably my favorite Birchbox sample of all time - I saved up to buy a bottle, which I am certain will last for ages.

At first, I didn't really care for it. I thought it was too strong in the bottle, a bit mature for my taste. But I put it on one day and was converted. Once on it mellows, and smells like an afternoon out of a history book. A unique scent - but be careful, a little goes a long way. Definitely a high quality product.

Signature Fragrance

I convinced my boyfriend to get me this perfume for Christmas after using up my Birchbox sample too quickly. This is seriously my favorite fragrance of all time. I'm a believer in this brand - and although the price is a bit steep... I think it's totally worth it.

Perfect Summer Scent!
Purchased

Very " citrusy" which is what I love when it comes to the fragrances I wear. If you want something that smells very clean with citrus undertone - this is for you. It also lasts all day long which is great and something that we all can appreciate!

A fine fragrance but waaaaaaay overpriced!

I thought this smelled just fine. It wasn't outstanding, nor did it smell bad, just OK. BUT there is NO way it is worth $165. I can't imagine ever paying that much for a fragrance unless it had hypnotic powers that made everyone that smelled it fall in love with me.

Way too "mature" for my taste

I opened my sample of this, and immediately I was reminded of my grandma. This smells exactly like something she would wear. But as for me, I will stick to less sophisticated purfumes

This must be mine!

I just got around to trying this sample this weekend as I'm not usually a fragrance person but wow! What is so amazing is that this is somewhat of a full fragrance that is a bit heavier than anything I am normally drawn to but, perfectly balanced and wearable. This is truly a unique and beautiful blend and is definitely on my wish list!
