Summary: This review is for vintage Samsara perfume. I have my older bottle from when I was a perfume SA in the 90s. On initial dab, I get a blast of powdery tonka bean. As it develops, approx two hours in, I get beautiful rich jasmine and the ylang ylang gets greener.
Summary: I'm wearing a 2004 sample of Samsara EDP today. Hmm, I remember it smelling quite distinctive in the 80s but this just smells nondescript to me. Maybe it's another one 'they' have sadly changed. Could just be my nose I suppose. Powdery nondescript floral.
Summary: I've written a review for this fragrance before but it was for the EDT. I just received the EDP today and I think it might be a vintage because the top of the bottle is metal and doesn't come off. So first off, same juice, different feel and strength for sure.
Summary: I first experienced the beauty of Samsara back in 1989. I was only 12 years old when my Mom was gifted the Parfum by my Grandma Mimi. It was, and remains one of her absolute favorites. Fast forward 26 years and here we are!
Excerpt: I cannot forget that I am a grown teenager from the 80es and that I knew what luxury and overpowering perfumes was. Samsara reminds me of that happy year, 1989, when I left my home and went to study at university...

Pros: Clean & Fresh, Great Smell, Great Value, Long-Lasting, Not Overpowering, Sensual
Summary: Samsara eau de parfum - I must confess this was not an instant love for me. It was rather disappointing, all those beautiful notes but none were revealing themselves to me. Instead all I had during the first couple of hours was something similar to a disinfectant.
