    From a sample.
    Really interesting fragrance. Wasn't sure that I liked it right away because the combination of the notes are unique to me and they seemed to work by themselves. Notes include a floral spice, dirty green vegetation and ocean salt. The floral is kind of clove like, and the dirty green vegetation and ocean salt seemed to drift back and forth. Almost like being on a green forested shore, with a peppery floral fragrant on the air, as a wave washes in the scent of ocean salt becomes dominant. As the wave washes back out, the green and floral spice take back over. Definately an earthy green vibe with this one. Sillage was average, but the scent stayed with me beyond 8 hours, which I absolutely loved. Not sure where I'd wear this, but it's captivating none the less.

    Truly unique fragrance that I want to try again and probably again. Thumbs Up.

    The ivy in Boston Ivy approaches mint with it's cooling green sweetness and a crisp, clean air. Beneath it lies the smell of dirt, as if the Ivy has been pulled up from from the ground, shaken off, and a trace of the damp soil remains on its roots. The opening actually reminds me of the opening in Cartier's Roadster, which I like very much. However, Boston Ivy remains mostly linear with its cool, green top while moving gradually in the direction of a soft earthiness with a touch of spice. Roadster goes all over the place and leaves a bit of a chaotic mess in its wake. Anyway, I've really enjoyed Boston Ivy the times I've worn it. There may be a moment or two where a certain mustiness appears in the mix, but it disappears and is actually less apparent the more generously the perfume is applied. Projection is quite good--this is one that creeps up on you, so be careful with how much you apply. Longevity is about 6 to 8 hours. Very nice and I'd say almost perfect if you're looking for a naturally green autumnal scent.

    Off the beach and on to school!

    Boston Ivy is the perfect End of Summer and Back to School scent. It's got enough sea salt to make you remember summer on the beach, and the clover notes are invigorating and reminiscent of academia.

    DS and Durga do this kind of thing amazingly well - evocative green scents (try their Cowboy Grass as well.)

    Pros: wonderfully salty, long-lasting and dusky green scent

    My first fragrance by ds durga and wow am I impressed! Easily my favorite go-to scent for the springtime. Not quite as green as one might expect after reading the list of notes. Lots of clover. Very long lasting and high quality. Big thumbs up.
