Got this in my May Birchbox to try. Like many others, I was not sure about the scent when I first applied it. The first notes were a bit strong, maybe the Egyptian Myrrh...then the sandalwood notes were just as powerful. Once I gave it a few minutes of overpowering my senses it became a scent that was sensual, memorable, and exotic. I can't explain it well but you are actually wearing the fragrance...it is not wearing you and the scent begins to be one where you just keep smelling your wrist because it smells soooooooo good.
Not the refreshing scent I expected
I ordered this scent based on the associations I have with yoga--words like refreshing, calm, and light come to mind. Instead, however, Yogini is more reminiscent of "a hug from my elderly grandmother," as my good friend put it when I let her try this scent. It is too heavy and sweet, when I was looking for something light and fresh.
Sample vs. Product...which is the true Yogini?
Really, really loved the Yogini sample we received in our monthly Birchbox (April?) and decided to buy Yogini in the 8.8ml size based on how good the sample smelled. Was a bit disappointed that the actual product didn't smell the same as the sample. It's still good...just a different smell. Thought it was just me...it's not; I had others smell both the sample & the product...it's like they are 2-different scents and not the same. Which is the true Yogini? The sample or the product because I liked the sample better than the product.
Really loved this scent! Its not too strong and smells amazing. Lives up to the zen claim also. Would totally consider buying this scent in the future.
I love the smell of this perfume and I love that it stays put but not in a super strong cloying type of way. It is flirty and a bit adventurous.
