    This one seems made for summer and summer seems made for it. Bahiana is very suitable for the hot typical weather of Bahia and seems a sophisticated and balanced composition of fresh, citrus notes over flowers with a soft and sparkling aroma, with discreet fruity touches and a light woody base. Very comfortable on days that you don't feel like wearing anything because of the heat.

    Woodsy coconut - something new!

    This scent says "tropical" to me, right from the get-go. It is a fruity, woodsy coconut and is incredibly well-executed. This is not your typical summer fragrance—light, refreshing, and warm at the same time. During the dry-down the woods and musk take over, which to me feels confusing in a tropical scent, but I would definitely wear this every once in a while. It's so creative and fun in a grown-up way--a truly original summer scent.

    I like Bahiana. It is a basic fragrance indeed that mainly smells of freshly squeezed orange juice. Its airy and sweet tones makes it a grat refresher for hot summer days. Basenotes are slightly woody-musky and some other fruits like mango show up. Completely unisex. Mental picture is Brazilian beaches with this one.

    Bahiana is basically a woody citrus with some floral thrown in but, whereas other fragrances of the same genre tend to dry down to harsh and overly synthetic woody bases, this one smells extremely well balanced.

    The usual woody-citrus structure is enriched by a remarkable tropical fruit vibe and slight clean-musky/ambery undertones. The fruity notes are photorealistic but, again, they smell so natural and sophisticated as opposed to the usual plasticky and sticky vibe I get from other fragrances with similar notes. Overall, Bahiana strikes as a modern composition but the srong heritage of Maitre Parfumeur Et Gantier is clearly remarkable throughout and serves as a big plus to turn this fragrance into one of the best in this genre. If you're looking for a unisex summery fragrance that's easy to wear yet anything but dull, this is one to keep in consideration. Very nice.

    The top-note is enchanting with orange and mandarin, the main chord is tropical with coconut - underneath the pleasant top and middle there are some notes which seem inconsistent and disturbing. The scent is extremely light - and the formula, trying to be trendy and topical - seems shallow and shadowy...a pale green with aspects of coconut. very poor staying powers, high price - nothing I'd recommend.

    Light Blue clone! I'm sure this scent must have redeeming qualities, but I simply can't get over the eerie similarity to D&G Light Blue - and I needn't reiterate how I feel about Light Blue.
    It's grating and pointy-sharp and I don't want it on my skin or anywhere near me. All citrus and splintery wood, not at all the tropical cocktail I had anticipated.
