MCMC founder Anne McClain was inspired by a free-spirited friend to create this ethereal perfume. Part of The Stories Collections—a group of scents inspired by McClain’s personal experiences—it’s the embodiment of feminine flair. The top note of vanilla quickly translates to a honeysuckle when it touches skin. The lasting note is peach, and its lightweight essence personifies the story of Phoenix.
I love the story that goes along with this fragrance, and couldn't wait to smell it. Wow! It has a delicate earthiness, and it really got nicer the longer I wore it. Love!4
I thought this fragrance was very unique; i don't have anything like it in my stash!! Fresh with a slight hint of a woodsy note. Dries down nicely and has decent staying power4
Perfume is definitely subjective but this scent was not for me, nor apparently for my co workers. My office mates could smell it on me and they thought it stunk.1
It is nice smelling. It definitely last longer than most perfumes. Definite plus! More earthy3
I absolutely adore this amazing modern take on vanilla and peach - floral and sweet without being overly so. Highly recommend it, beautiful scent and packaging. LOVE!!5
it smells really really good a bit different from other perfumes. I dont understand some of the other reviews, but anyway i really liked it, but for the price tag I wish the scent were longer lasting.4
Perfume is hard to describe but I really liked this one. The vanilla is really nice but not overpowering, and I get more peach than honeysuckle. It seems like the perfect summer scent! I've gotten tons of compliments on it from strangers. Always a plus :)5
Like some of the other reviewers, I can't pinpoint what I didn't like about this perfume. There's something about the fragrance combination that just doesn't work for me.2
I'm not much of a perfume gal and at first I thought this was too sweet for my tastes, but after a little while it mellowed into a fantastically addictive scent. I literally couldn't stop smelling my wrist. A bit too much comes out of the sample at once—large drops instead of a mist—so you have to be careful when applying. I'm thinking maybe some of those who reviewed this negatively had this problem? It can be a bit strong in larger quantities—but so can most perfumes. I've never been particularly fond of any of the perfume samples I've received in my 1+ year with Birchbox, but Phoenix is fantastic. Most perfumes smell pretty generic to me, but this unique and intriguing.5
I really love this perfume. I personally didn't feel like it smelled like a grandma perfume in the least. It's light, it's like that smell that is in almost all popular perfumes right now with out the overly sweet candy, powerful smell.
I put it on with out my husband knowing I made a change and when he hugged me his nose went right to my neck sniffing away. "You smell really good". He had no idea I had put on something knew, it wasn't over powering he just thought it was my normal stuff toned down. I told him it was a totally different one and he wanted to know what it was.
My mother smelled it and since I'm into the more younger smells like Viva La Juicy and Fire and Ice, she said that this was a "ME" perfume. It goes along with the kinds of things I would like but she too felt it was lighter.
I really like this stuff. The cost is the only thing keeping me away from buying a whole one.
