Birchbox Breakdown

Like the famous spy Mata Hari, this scent is more than what it seems. It smells of flowers and spice and everything nice, as you’d expect from a vintage fragrance. But there’s something dark and mysterious about this scent, which taps into the seductive powers of rose, musk, and sandalwood. Consider us intrigued!

Not what I expected..
Purchased

Oh how the description of this scent lured me in and then left me hanging. I was expecting more sensual notes but instead I got the powder blast, very little iris( one of the notes that drew me in) and very little warmth from the spice and wood notes described. Yet, I can't say I dislike it as it has its charm with rose and on my skin some sort of soapy scent. So it's in rotation but certainly not at the top of the list and I'm relieved I purchased the smallest option available.

Mata Hari's Secret Weapon - a Powder Bomb!
Purchased

This was my first HDP scent, and a blind buy. From the description I thought it would be a safe choice, but WOW this was a total powder bomb! Great quality, depth, lasting power and sillage - but not what I was expecting at all. The only "spice" note I got was caraway, and there was hints of rose and iris - but all faint compared to the overwhelming powder accord. A beautiful, vintage-smelling fragrance, but not to my tastes at all.
