Gypsy water is my HG fragrance. I haven't found a perfume that sits so well on me and lasts so long since first trying Chanel No.5. (And I think this one is more suited to younger women too).

Top: Bergamot, lemon, pepper, juniper
Mid: Incense, pine needles, Orris
Base: Amber, vanilla, sandalwood
It took me so long to actually buy this because the scent keeps changing the longer I wear it. I would try it on while shopping, fall in love it with, then go back the next time to buy it, only to try it again fresh and decide I don't like it anymore. I think it was coming across as too spicy for me on the first spray as opposed to the warm, comforting vanilla smell I was growing accustomed to as I wore it.
This scent is marketed as 'unisex' however I would find it just a little bit too sweet on a man. MissLewis writes a review on the Mecca website:
"This scent wears impeccably. It's not too sweet, not too feminine or masculine, is not cloying and is not going to overpower your senses. The base notes of vanilla and sandalwood are the most prominent when warmed by the skin. To me this parfum feels like fresh laundry. If you idenitfy with the notes you will probably dicover this to be your signature scent as there is an intangible quality about the blend that makes you feel like you were meant to wear it. Gypsy Water is divine."
I only wish my fresh laundry could smell like this perfume! I definitely can relate to feeling like I was meant to wear it. I feel clean, confident and complete with a spritz of this fragrance.
Gypsy water can be purchased from Mecca Cosmetica in Australia at $158 for the 50ml bottle or $235 for 100ml. This is a very steep price for me but I could not resist treating myself to this one especially since adopting it as my 'signature scent'.
Have you tried Gypsy Water or any other Byredo Perfumes?
