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.
Summary: Cette fragrance mythique est à la fois sensuelle et prodigieusement spirituelle, envoûtée par le bois de santal et par la fleur d’ylang-ylang voluptueuse. Cette dernière est incontournable pour les amoureuses des notes boisées et balsamiques.
Summary: this is a wonderful classic from guerlain. i had a 5ml vintage EDP for awhile, and unfortunately i can't wear it because there is a persistent, disturbing "deep woods insect repellent" note on me, this is present in the current formula too but instead of eventually fading away it remains throughout,...
Summary: wowowoow... i just sprayed a heavy dose of samsara edp at the counter. It clashed so sharply alongside the more "modern" compositions i've sampled. Samsara is loaded with perfumey ingredients. Big sandalwood, ripe ylang and jasmine, the indolic kind; with a hefty "cat-piss" note!
Summary: Review for 1988 edp: Samsara opens with a sharp clear iris and bergamot accord, which slowly fades into jasmine, narcissus and just a touch of rose in the heart. On my skin, this only lasts for about 20 minutes before the dry down arrives.
Summary: i adore this scent, its wonderful. however i can't wear it. I've tried many times & it doesn't settle well on me, on other people its beautiful but i just can't pull it off which is such a shame.
Summary: They just dont make orientals like this anymore which makes Samsara even more desirable. Opening of ylang-ylang, powder, and dry sandalwood that follows up with mostly jasmine, iris and tonka to intertwine and lift up the sandalwood on a royal pedestal. Warm and enough sweetness.
Excerpt: I use it every day . I was able to wear to work as a nurse because it is very light and not over powering for the patients. Very strong perfumes give me migraines but not Samsara. I have received many compliments while wearing it.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Not Overpowering
