Mojave Ghost fragrance notes

Reviews of Mojave Ghost

Perfume for people who don't wear perfume. Or better put perfume for people who wants to smell like they have something on. Had to spray a lot of this juice on in order for my husband to smell it on me. Took over 30 minutes of wearing before my body heat allow me to actually smell the perfume and it smelled like I used a different bar of soap to wash, I had to really press my nose into my skin to get anything. Spraying on a paper strip only allowed a slight floral-fruity bit to be noticed.

I'm surprised this particular perfume has a cult-like following on the Instagram boards. It's like an expensive nothing-burger, perhaps I don't get the 'in joke' with this perfume.

This smells like a niche version of Nautica Voyage with added nasberry note. It's very inoffensive and pleasant to smell, and performs quite well. It basically smells aquatic, clean, and fruity. It leans kind of feminine.

Byredo Mojave Ghost walks the unisex line well while performing admirably for a warm-weather-leaning option.

Full of magnolia with other supporting elements like sandalwood and cedarwood, I'm mostly miffed by how the top notes---somewhat unfamiliar to me---factor in. They ambrette seed and sapodilla fruit. I'm curious, as I know neither, but they seem to facilitate sweetness and freshness that complements the burst of magnolia that comprises most of my experience of the fragrance.

MG performs a bit better than most of the Byredo fragrances that are geared, in my opinion, toward warmer weather use, perhaps slightly better than the Sunday Cologne EDP that I own, and on par with some of the other EDPs in the line that aren't like the heavy-hitting 1996, for example.

Overall, a pleasant experience, and one of the better productions of the house of Byredo.

This is a ghostly scent indeed -- there is hardly anything here! Extremely faint, somewhat sweet, no distinguishing notes. The little scent that wasn't there.

I felt compelled to leave a few notes on Mojave Ghost because there are so many negative reviews for what I think is an innovative and fresh - in every sense - fragrance. Named for the Mojave Ghost flower which grows in very dry desert areas the fragrance resembles the flower in concept only but that works because the scent is very dry and ethereal, ghost-like and also hauntingly dry in a mystical desert floral manner. The opening smells like a light sugary melon ball syrup shaken with magnolia flower essence which is an extremely light sweet floral but there is a slight purple slash of violet that sends a small dark cloud over the sunny sky. This light airy floral is carried outward on an inflationary burst of synthetic cedar and ruggedly sunny ambroxan. The result is a dry sun baked desert air scent with a slightly brooding reclusive floral tone.

Though very different in name, Mojave Ghost reminds me a bit Gendarme which is slightly greener, bolder and probably not all that similar after all. The primary limiting factor of Mojave Ghost is the sublety or lightness and a light sugary white floral musk that doesn't really fulfill the name. Adding a dose of agave essence and a bolder violet ?? more ambrette, might help this fragrance. As it is, I like the name and don't mind the fragrance too much. For product concept it rates 9 of 10 stars. For fragrance effectiveness I would rate it 4 stars of 10. So I must give it a neutral overall rating.

Future Jason:

Super interesting. You get very little fruit, compared to what others have mentioned. At the outset, this is almost all floral, in the vein of the way Eau de Cartier wears for you.

Flowers mashed up in wet clay. It's like a pottery class in a field. Not just unisex, this is what the asexual class wears. Androgynous. Purposefully confusing. A scent for Bowie.

Towards the end, it takes on a bizarre stressed out brightness, like a small car's engine compartment after traveling on the autobahn. It's this last bit that has brought this review down from positive to neutral over time. It may even become negative, but I doubt you'll wear it often enough to find out.
