    Eww.

    A strident citrusy / vanilla combo on top joined by earthy / orris-y notes. It evolves into a piney / incensey thing with a super-cloying vanilla bone structure. A strong deja-vu vibe pervades the fragrance throughout while I can't help from thinking that if they just tamed that vanilla down, this could have probably been much nicer.

    No.

    Gypsy Water smells like lemon Hostess cupcakes tempered by a dose of dry woods. It's in the same ballpark as Diptyque's Eau Duelle and Liquid Night by A Lab on Fire (citrus/vanilla/woods dominant fragrances). Gypsy Water, however, opens with more of an edible, gourmand quality as there's something of a sweet baked bread note to it. As it develops, it takes on a cardboard accord which does a nice job of tempering the sweetness, adding masculinity to the scent, and making it a bit drier overall. I like Gypsy Water and think its a well-made fragrance, but since I already own a bottle of Eau Duelle and prefer Liquid Night's innovative use of Hinoki wood, I will not be purchasing this. However, had I smelled this on its own without experiencing the others first, I would definitely consider buying it as its a very nice scent--relaxed, easy to wear, and just a bit sensual. A solid, casually styled offering from the house of Byredo.

    Warmth by soon
    The combination of aromatic herbs as rosemary (may be others) and berries from the forests as juniper berries or pine needles (joined with dry elements as cedarwood, incense, bergamot, pepper and tart citrus) conjures me initially in perception the olfactory classicism unfolding from some notorious aromatic chypre or citrus aromatic from il Profvmo (Imprinting), Dyptique, Loewe (vaguely 7) or Penhaligon's (Blenheim Bouquet for instance); it actually happens for a short while (with the base notes immediately emerging), just till when a "gypsy twist" comes to be instilled in the aroma by an amber/vanilla denser fluid able to attenuate the initial classic aromatic tartness and bringing out a more rounded woody/vanilla heavy embrace. The "balsams' intervention" is actually too much marked since the beginning and it obstructs a full aromatic performance from the woodsy/tart notes (by soon enveloped in a warm embrace frustrating the citric/aromatic effects). In the average, anything to add.
    Pros: Incensey/woodsy aftertaste
    Cons: I'd have preferred less amber-vanilla"</p>

    Vanilla notes always stand up with that one, even, it is very reminiscent of Dyptique's Eau Duelle.

    Nice fragrance but imo never full bottle worthy while Eau Duelle is around.

    I bought this because I thought it would be awesome. I wish I got the same experience as a lot of reviewers but I didn't. This is what I got from Gypsy Water: a ridiculously cheap white musk with its usually imperceptible cloying aspect amplified here to the 10th power and flowers growing from toxic waste lands joining in to sing a song of self conscious terror called Gypsy Water. I don't know why I thought it would smell differently on me than in the bottle. The bottle sure whispers what is to come.
