I smelled this a few months ago. Very nice.
David Yurman, a luxury American jewelry company (fragrance license belongs to Clarins), launched DAVID YURMAN LIMITED EDITION, which is now available at David Yurman retail stores and Saks Fith Avenue. The suggested price is $250 for 2.5 fl. oz. (75 ml) of Extrait de Parfum. The quantity of bottles for the US market is extra limited (only several hundred bottles will be sold).
David Yurman Limited Edition embodies the embrace of precious, rarified ingredients. Natural Agar Wood (Oud Wood), the most prized woody note in the Middle East, works in synergy with exquisite Rose Taif, a hybrid of Bulgarian Rose and Turkish Rose.
The decadent accord is surprisingly juxtaposed with top notes of crisp coriander, geranium, saffron and raspberry. At its heart, violet and night-blooming jasmine mingle, adding a daring extravagance of scent. For the grand finale: the irresistible appeal of warm suede, creamy vanilla, enticing musk and earthy sandalwood.
Reflecting its exotic nature, the fragrance arrives in a faceted crystal bottle of plush crimson red, embellished with a sculpted gold cap inspired by David Yurman’s iconic cable design.
Are the David Yurman fragrances unisex? I haven't paid them that much attention, other than liking the way the bottles look

I didn't care too much for the first release. Not too much interested in a sequel.
This was close to a winner for me, but not quite. I get both the rose and oud in a big way (I'm a bit hypersensitive to oud), and I would call it exquisite except that there is a plastic-like note that I just can't shake, and it bothers me like a pebble in my shoe. I really think it's worth sniffing - it's nice and powerful. It's up there in a class with Noir de Noir, Rose d'Arabie, and some of those other powerhouse oriental roses.
Very unisex and very different from the first release. There is homage to the original, but that's it. They could have easily called this a totally different scent. But yet, stylistically, it's very "David Yurman" - big, but with enough of it's own self-confidence to brazen it out and not be (IMO) gaudy. I think his jewelry has a certain sexiness which is captured in this scent as well.

Can't understand why a men's line was never launched by Yurman ......????
