I just received my large bottle today , and the presentation is a bit quirky , but overall impressive . I love this scent , the 3.4 ounce bottle is beautiful and right center on my perfume cabinet . I had just showered when package arrived so I was able to go in with a few spritzes . Heavenly rose , spicy with the cardamom and saffron , cocoa is there as well , I do get a bit of oud , but not overpowering , it's perfect . I will always have this on hand . Thanks , so much all those involved in the making of this outstanding perfume , bottle and experience ~
I bought the sampling of all 3 with this one being an absolute " love " with Spice must flow second . This one here is an amazing scentual of " chocolate and roses " on me , with a hint of spice . I love it , and will buying a large bottle of 500 years soon . I'm saving up to get the larger size and can't wait to add to my collection . One of the best
All my future wallets weep, this is where my fortune will flow. The scent is quiet power and deep thoughts.
All the purified smoke I hoped to smell is here.
If the spirits of trees could step out of their sunbaked pines and make love to me, they would smell exactly like this. It is all of the heat and warmth of a wood fire, with only a hint of the smoke. I am wearing this scent to bed, because I want to dream about how this smells. I have never loved a scent before like I love this one. I feel badly for all of the other samples that I haven't tried yet.
Attaquer Le Soleil Marquis DE Sade is a holiday in a bottle only I can’t figure out which one so let’s go with all the holidays in one container. The main note is cistus need I say more? For those who haven’t experienced cistus, it is a soft, fruity smell with warm wood overtones. It has a musky, clean, dignified edge. Mid-day the same as the first. I love rocking this scent. It makes me feel rebellious and the longevity is good. Defiantly feel like the outrageous Marquis de Sade when I have this on. Look him up on WIKI. Who knows what I might accomplish?
I believe I've sampled each and every scent they make now, have purchased some again, and again trying to decide which will be the lucky purchase. It's impossible to choose. But right now, today, with the world in complete disarray, I'm floating on some kind of high from this bewitching fragrance. Have been a fan of this company since our honeymoon in Paris 6 years ago.
I know this is probably a more masculine scent for some people. But, I don't care, I love it! It smells like fresh milled lumber. That sawdust smell of freshly sawn hardwood. I never realized how intoxicating a woody smell could be until now. Not a smooth cedar or any familiar woody element either, a sharper, heady smell that will absolutely make you incapable of doing anything but sniff it obsessively. Yes, I WOULD love a man that smelled like this, but I don't have one so I'll wear it for myself! Another masterpiece from ELDO.
I received my sample set and I’m not kidding, upon spraying this on the paper I immediately despised it. After applying all the scents to the papers, this was far and away my least favorite and I figured I’d never bother trying it on lest someone have the unfortunate experience of smelling me.
But that was before COVID-19. Since I’m not going anywhere, I figured I’d try them all on different days, and I finally got to this one. I can’t say it’s my new favorite, but I am genuinely impressed with what a difference is made by adding this scent to skin. It’s no longer the stale smell of grandma masking her lack of shower by too much cloying “rose artificielle”, instead I pick up the sweetly fruity lynchee and the blooming rose garden. It’s quite extraordinary, but you must love musks.
I recently ordered the 20-fragrance sample, based largely on the cheeky names given to many of them (Fat Electrician, anyone? HA!). After a fairly exhaustive testing session, I came away with 3-4 that I really liked (though many were rather special and told me a unique story, just not all were something I'd personally want to wear), and Experimentum Crucis topped the list. It is so fresh and clean and unique, I simply cannot get enough. I haven't received any comments on it yet, but I don't mind that, as it feels like something just for me. Every time I roll over in the middle of the night and get a whiff of it from my pillow, and I smile and sigh in my sleep. My only wish is that this was available in various sizes like most other; $225 is just a bit cost-prohibitive for my budget, even for this incredible scent. Until (or unless) this is available in a more economical size, I'll just keep ordering 10 samples at a time!
Just got a sample of this and sprayed it (while at work) and shortly after a guy walked into my office and commented it smells like "fresh laundry". Seeing how long it lingers but so far it's exceptional.
Got a sample of this and its love st first spray. A unique scent and last long on me. I'm definitely will purchased.
When first sprayed, there's a strong powder scent, but within a couple of minutes it dramatically changes to a clean, lightly citrusy scent that lasts all day long. This scent makes me feel happy and light.
I agree with the other reviews I have read so far on here, sweet smelling, unisex but leaning towards masculine, I keep smelling myself. I really enjoy this scent. It’s not a fresh scent but it’s a distinct smell from my youth. Have you ever been to a small town hardware store in the early morning and a round man in overalls and a denim cap has stepped in to get some sockets or hose reels for his at home project? He drives a 1962 maroon Chevy Impala that’s still purring like a cat, cause if you keep oil in them they’ll last a lifetime. When he walks his hefty self past you in the hardware isle, THIS is the smell you get. This is it.
The name is... eccentric? However, somehow I knew this scent was something that was going to fit me. I don’t know if I want this on my SO, or myself, I just know I want to smell it all the time. I admittedly love masculine, woody scents, and this... this fits the bill. It’s masculine, yet sweet and comforting... it’s like Mother Nature and your favorite dirty pub with live music had a love child with fall and all your favorite holidays, and also the most comforting things in your life. 10/10 recommend.
I bought the sample kit, and this has so far been my favorite. I. Can't. Stop. Smelling. Me.
I love it. It isn't some fru fru spray that goes away in 30 minutes, or that makes you smell like your 12 and going skating, but it's also not that smell that makes you seem like you 80 going to the early bird special with your flower hat. It's wonderful 👏
This scent is perfect for me. It leans towards masculine while still being sweet, and even though I am, in fact, a woman, it smells just the way I want it to. It progresses throughout the day, getting softer the linger you have it on. Beautiful scent, a great choice for my first ever perfume.
Top notes: Cedar Vetiver warm wood tones chestnut cream, olive leaves, myrrh, vanilla. Imagine going into a museum and opening an ancient chest of cedar drawers and there’s something sexy and slightly naughty inside. Mid-day update: Wood tones have settled down and now I would describe it as cream, vanella, musk. Softer as the day progresses into evening. This is very nice. I like it and upgraded from the sample to the 50ml.
