Reviews of Child

Very strong, almost overwhelming white floral. The jasmine dominates (I don't find it indolic, just syrupy) and I also smell violet and rose. I don't get any musk during the drydown, just a continuing floral (the violet does become more prominent) along with something that smells like a sheaf of white paper.

Child isn't terrible, but I'm not sure where I'd wear this. It's a bit much for daytime, and I don't find it sexy. A happy hour fragrance, maybe?

Top: Vanilla, Lilac, Faint Magnolia.
Heart: Jasmine, Tuberose, Violet.
Base: Crème Musk, Rose, Mimosa.

I'm not a fan of BWF's, and don't wear them well, really. But of the whites I like jasmine the most - it's such a beautiful note. But I was still surprised I liked this one. Child is a rich, intoxicating Pikaki Jasmine fragrance, fairly linear, voluptuous, strong, somewhat hypnotic. The deal about this fragrance is something I read on another site and agree with - it possesses an enigmatic power and confidence. This quality makes sense of the fact it's popular with actresses in Hollywood. I see the relationship there.
It's about more than the notes. A feminine power player. One to wear if you want to exude confidence - nuff said.
Note: I layered this with SL Fumerie Turque when I wasn't in the mood for the BWF aspect of it, and it was smashing. Still a powerful floral but with a little toughness and roughness.

l find this to be a soft & pretty jasmine/pikake, with just a touch of indole. Like a softer, much less challenging version of Lust by Lush/Gorilla perfumes. A couple of hours in there's a subtle touch of musk, but otherwise it's quite linear. The sillage is good for an oil, & it lasts around eight hours before fading. A warm & friendly jasmine, very pleasant to wear while pottering around on a spring day.

This is a very pretty indolic jasminey/soapy clean scent! I first tried it out as a sample and enjoyed it enough to buy the 1.3 oz. roll-on. It really is lifts my spirits (must be the Jasmine), people comment on how nice it smells but I don't get any sort of musky drydown...although it could just be the way the scent carries on my skin. If you're interested in trying "Child" I would go to "" and I believe they have it set up where you can try a sample vial for a nominal fee..I'm pretty sure they carry "Child"...although don't quote me on that. Mind you, this is a pretty heady floral but the right person/personality can carry it off! Enjoy!

Child starts out as an indolic sweet floral and ends up as a soapy clean fresh musk closely resembling Amazing Grace by Philosophy. Being that Child is a limited edition and quite pricey (abour $100 per oz.) I'd rather spend $40. on an ounce or so of Amazing Grace. My point is that it's not bad, but certainly not worth the $. I turn a neutral thumb.

I spilled some Child on my glasses case, and was nearly retching after an hour of sniffing it (this was one of those cases you hang around your neck). I finally realized what had happened, and took off the case, and immediately the nausea/motion sickness effect faded. I agree with shesamazingnyc...Child is very linear and uncomplicated. I WISH I had gotten a musky dry down, but instead all I could detect was a sickening sweet cloying jasmine/floral mess. My glasses case still has a faint wiff of it after being washed, and 2 months later! And why did she call it 'Child' if it's supposed to drive men wild? Isn't that rather creepy?
