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.
Harvey Prince Yogini 8.8 ml
I immediately fell in love with the sample size that I received in my monthly Birchbox that I had to order the full size. This scent is uplifting, light, slightly sweet, calming and good to use fresh from a Yoga practice or right before you lay your head upon your pillow at night. Very calming AND uplifting depending how you like to use it. Highly recommended to friends and fellow Birchboxers alike.
Not what I was expecting and not something that I normally wear, but a decent enough scent. This would be a great nighttime scent or one of those that you try when you want to venture out of your comfort zone a little. I approve.
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.
Surprisingly Nice Scent!
This product a sweet yet earthy scent to it - but a little goes a long way. Might consider purchasing the 8.8 oz bottle.
Smells very good
I got this in my birch box and it smells so nice and it's long lasting which I love. My mother asked me what I had on so she's probably going to get her own small bottle.
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.
I like the fragrance but it is a little to "woodsy" for me. I have used it a few times to break up the monotony of my normal perfume and I have gotten lots of compliments on the scent.
Beatiful, Calming Fragrance
I just received this in my May Birchbox, and I love the fragrance. It is designed to calm, and as someone with anxiety and high stress levels, it does just that. It's not an overpowering fragrance and wears off nicely throughout the day. I'm not sure how to describe the fragrance itself, but it's a little musky mixed with floral. I got so many compliments on it when I went grocery shopping after I had just put it on.
My new go-to
Got his as a sample in my April box. At first, I wasn't sure if it was going to be a keeper.
I tried it the first morning and when my husband and I got home from work, he told me that he could still smell it and it smelled so good.
People at work were asking me what I was wearing, they really liked it. I put my name on the waiting list and was just able to purchase.
