    Like a lot!

    it's different, to be sure, it's a little masculine, yes. But, I've found when I layer this with Flowerbomb, it creates a wonderful, heady, feminine man magnet potion. I literally had a guy friend ask to hug me again because I smelled so good. It's not for everybody, but if you can carry it off and tone it down with a layer of something else, it's a winner. — 10 months, 1 week ago

    Great perfume

    Boyfriend is a very unusual scent....slightly musky, slightly vanilla. Whenever I wear it, which is quite often, I get a lot of compliments. My only complaint is that it's a bit 'heavy' so I don't like to wear it in the summertime, hence the 9 out of 10 rating stars. — 2 years, 3 months ago

    Review subject

    I saw this on the list of "celebrity fragrances our editors are embarrassed to love," and I share the sentiment. I won't even test most celebrity perfumes because they inspire such feelings of aversion. But when a sample of this perfume was offered at Sephora, I decided to ignore the tacky selling pitch and give it a shot. After all, jasmine and vanilla are my two favourite notes (though there are...read more perfumes that include both which I hate). I was pleasantly surprised by the perfume and wound up purchasing it. It probably helped that I had only had the vaguest idea of who Kate Walsh was at the time (I've never watched Grey's Anatomy or Private Practice), and I probably wouldn't have bought it post-Billionaire Boyfriend (I REALLY find that one tacky), but I bought it and I do enjoy it. But I digress. As to the scent itself: I hardly find it masculin; it doesn't make me think of the way "a guy smells on a girl". Yes there are notes like musk and wood that are often associated with cologne, but they are found in women's perfume too. I'm not saying those who claim it is masculine are wrong, because I haven't smelled it on them and all perfumes are affected by body chemistry, I can only say that was not my experience. Like many (most?) orientals, it can go on strong. At first, the plum and amber dominate. Curiously, they dominate much more with the .5oz bottle I got than they did with the sample. I like the sweet plummy scent, but the perfume as first spritzed is not something I'd be inclined to wear. I much prefer how it smells after a few minutes: it is no longer so strong, and the night-blooming jasmine appears, and I can detect the vanilla woods. Neither the Jasmine nor the vanilla woods are as strong as I remember them being in the sample, which is unfortunate in my opinion, but it is still a pleasurable scent: sensual and intoxicating; sweet, but not as much as a more strictly gourmand perfume. The musk gives it a feeling of intimacy. Overall I find it to be a notably good formulation for the price - at least on me. I get the impression that it is affected a great deal by body chemistry, so definitely test it on your skin before deciding if it is for you. Is it my favourite perfume? No, but is probably the perfume that has been the best surprise; anyways I can't afford Prada L'eau Ambrée. — 2 years, 4 months ago

    Love this

    It smells fantastic- very earthy and woody. A bonus for me is it doesn't give me a headache like many perfumes do. — 3 years, 3 months ago

    Love it!

    I'll admit that I wasn't sure what to expect from a fragrance that "reminds you of a man", but this scent is wonderful! It's sexy...soft, sweet and a little musky. If you enjoy the orientals...think 212Sexy, Pink Sugar and Marc Jacobs Amber, you may want to give this a try. — 3 years, 8 months ago
