Hmm, this does smell a bit like pumpkin pie or something else bready. It's cozy and a little bit strange. Also very quiet. There is a very slight bitterness next to the bready sweetness. I can't say I like it, but I think I can see why many others do. Seems like a good scent for baking.

This one was just not for me. Powdery and slightly Spivey, I just didn't like the mixture of notes. This one leans more towards the feminine side. This one could be a holiday scent.

Smells like a pumpkin spice latte. I guess there's a time for that? Hard to hate, but not very interesting.

I wanted to like this because of the Tilda Swinton connection, and ELdO have produced some frags I quite enjoy (though none that I consider FBW for me) - such as Fat Electrician (a bit sweet and cloying, and I already have vetiver frags), Je Suis Un Homme, and Eloge du Traitre (I already have Caron's Yatagan, which to my mind is better).

However. The opening of Like This has a familiar harsh, burnt feel to it - possibly a vetiver aromachem (as in Bel Ami Vetiver), but that wears off quickly. At the same time, it is quite sweet. And fleetingly salty. Well-blended, as in I can't pick out individual notes to start with. Doesn't take long before it settles down and becomes floral-ish (I get the rose), mild spice (cinnamon, ginger) and a bit of pumpkin. It's inoffensive. Meh.

In the far drydown, I finally get a recognisable vetiver, somewhat similar to Fat Electrician

It's not often my sampling selection misfires, but this was a dud. I might wear it on autumn nights out when something discreet and sweet-spiced would suit. But why bother ?

Ginger is a favorite note of mine so I like the way this smells and find it interesting. However, the immortelle flower and pumpkin combo make this a little too herbal and musky for me to call a true favorite. Late into the drydown I get something like maple syrup or fenugreek, weird. Bonus points for attempting something unique and interesting.

Projection is average and longevity is good but it fades to a skin scent after 4-5 hours.

High hopes for this one..Overall, it seemed pretty generic. The opening is a fruity floral, quite sweet. Then a gingery-woody phase, followed by another generic clean musk base. I appreciated the ginger-woody notes, but the strong opening and base constantly reminded me of other things i dont remember. Scrubbed. It was persistent.
