I bought this for my wife but I wear it all the time! To me, it's a very dry rose and not at all a powdery old-lady perfume. Might even be nice to layer with Tauer's L'Air. Shanti Shanti -- a terrific (unisex) fragrance!
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.
A desert island fragrance, for sure. Both beautiful and unique — I love it.
<del>To me it smells a lot like Clinique's Happy for Men. A pleasant enough scent, though fleeting as the sillage and longevity aren't very good.</del>
On second thought, I've come to really enjoy and admire this fragrance. I'll be wearing it a lot this summer for sure. I wouldn't want to be without this one in my collection. Just marvelous.

unfortunately for me i bought a bottle, came home and sprayed it all over myself. until it started to wear off i just wanted to hurl. i am completely blown away by how awful this stuff is. stay far away. you have been warned....
I really wanted to like this but just couldn't get past the sour green olive note.
This is my the first oud fragrance and I purchased it unsniffed. Wow -- a blast of skunkyness and funkyness. Took some getting used to but now I've grown to really love it.

I was turned on to this from a Chandler Burr review in the NY Times. It deserves five stars for sure. Totally gorgeous.
Purchasing this one is a no-brainer. Along with Gucci PH, the best of the mainstreams for men.
To me it's the mango that makes this one so unique. I love the dusty incense. Perfect any time of year. I need to pick up a second bottle soon cause I'm running dangerously low.
Love it. Every man should own this one.
I bought this for my wife -- I love it on her!
Big giant thumbs up. Superb, amazing, cool. This is the real deal. I wear it in wintertime. There's nothing better.
I could see why this one gets such mixed reviews: it's cloyingly sweet and somewhat unusual. I like the immortelle note. I really like this fragrance.
My favorite tobacco-scented fragrance. I like it even more than the wildly popular SL Chergui. Tabac Aurea is must-have -- it's the one I reach for come autumn, along with Rose 31 and Like This.
I bought this for my wife -- but I wear it as much as she does. It's terrific.
I like to wear this one in the summer. It's a good fragrance, though it's a shame the bottle is cheap and messy.
This is my favorite from the CdG line. Unique and beautiful fragrance that can be worn year-round.
Big thumbs up. An all-time fave. It puts me in a happy state of mind whenever I wear it.
