The number Pi starts off 3.141592.. and just goes on for ever and ever. Computers are sitting there as you read this working out more numbers to add on the end of it...

Reviews of Pi

Sweet and powdery. That powdery feel gives it a bit of an "old lady" feel, kinda unisex, but overall this is pleasant and enjoyable, even today. Has some similarities with Bulgari Black, minus the rubber and add some almond-vanilla sweetness.

It's a little loud and heavy in the opening hour but calms down and settles into a softer scent. Seems okay for everything except hot weather. Lasts all day on my skin.

Notes and reviews dont resemble my experience. To me? Johnson and Johnson Baby Magic. Which i like, and use. But never thought, "Man, I wish this baby lotion would project a bit." Thumbs down.

I remember this being one of the first few scents I've ever tried, and I fell in love with it right away. My feelings have tempered a bit since finding plenty of things I love since then. But it's still lovely. It's sweet, but not shouty or cloying. The almond is done well, sometimes in other fragrances it can come off a bit old-womanly to me but it doesn't here. I don't know if the changing, never-ending nature of Pi describes the scent all THAT well, it's fairly linear to be honest. But, it smells good so that's fine by me.

This is a good one. It seems to have a seamless transition from top through to base. That is, the opening is sufficiently soft and doesn't stand out so as to smell completely different as it dries down. However, I must say that the vanilla stands out nicely but is not overpowering (at least I know what that smells like).

To me, this fragrance is the definition of November, leaves, cool air, pretty crystallized morning dew grass with a beautiful sun shining in it, a nice jacket, and good vibes and a good day. It's gonna be a feel good day if I throw this on. I know it will be. It's just one that I have to have in my collection along with play intense. Both are must haves. I love this one but I just wish it lasted longer. Over 6 hours and projected for longer but I'm half way through my bottle after 4 years with over 30 fragrances to choose from

Easily a top 10 in my wardrobe. Sweet and not overpowering. Winter scent for sure.
