Um samsara modernizado, com um plus de baunilha, grande rastro e fixação. Maravilhoso.

Sad to say, Samsara Shine is a disappointment for me. If I didn't know better, I'd think it was just a failed Samsara knock-off attempt, rather than a flanker. When I read some reviewers describe it as a more vanillic version of Samsara, I got SO excited. And while it is unmistakably a version of Samsara, it is only similar enough to remind me how great the original is. There is no way I'd ever reach for this with a bottle of original Samsara nearby.

A glamorous delight! A hint of green/citruses at the beginning and very luxurious and oozing with amber, sandalwood, vanilla and tonka bean stay with you for eons,quite phenomenal really. I agree with Lady Macbeth that it is very strong at first, and you do feel surrounded by warmth! Very similar to the original and gorgeous Samsara, with extra vanilla. I'm sad to hear that it isn't being produced anymore! What a shame. Such a pity as it has all of the attributes of a timeless, classic scent.

It's one of my mom's scents, it fits her, but I don't find anything floral green. For me it's too heavy, it gives me a headache. But on my mom it smells great.

Samsara Shine is a fantastic scent - the essence of of a confident and passionate woman. I have not come across any other perfume that magnetic!

Samsare Shrine is not produced anymore and very difficult to find.
Samsara is a wonderful creation, but it is also very special and heavy. It's not sold as expected, this for a mainstream fragrance that is full of Jean-Paul Guerlain's passion and love. They introduced a couple of variations on the original fragrance, which were lighter. But Samsara just needed more time to settle in, and is now a very popular classic. It's full of personality and warmth. Like "Shalimar Légère", Samsara Shine did not survived very long and it is not that spectacular. I classify this one with the other Guerlain mistakes of that period: Too Much Champs-Elysées, Cherry Blossom Delight, Cherry Blossom Fruity, Cherry Blossom Glittering, Colours of Love, Lovely Cherry Blossom Sparkles, Precious heart, Shiny Cherry Blossom, With Love, and Lights of Champs Elysées,. Cherry Blossom has been sold in Europe, but the other ones I have never seen. Sometimes they only release for the American and/or Asian market... . I admit that these creations are not really reflecting the Spirit of Guerlain. The position now is clear, but Guerlain and LVMH had to find the balance in their "relationship "after Guerlain was acquired in 1994. Un air de Samsara was on the other hand a very good release!
I just advise to try Samsara, and buy it in the eau de toilette or deodorant and body-spray if you want a lighter version. There is nothing better then Samsara on it's own!

I agree with lady macbeth in that it seems quite strong when first applied, but then dissipates to a lingering scent that stays with you for hours. I bought a miniature of this on ebay (I couldn't find the smaller, sample vial) because I really like the original samsara, which is definitely not for daily wear. I was hoping that samasara "shine" would be a little more toned down...it is. So much so, that it does not smell anything like the original samsara on my skin. There is only one thing that comes to mind when I wear this fragrance: DRYER SHEETS. That is EXACTLY what it smells like, and overwhelmingly so. I do NOT like this scent at all. I'm just very disappointed that I spent the $13 on the miniature and shipping so smell like something I could get out of adding an extra dryer sheet for a few cents. Dryer sheets...

Samsara Shine is an adorable sparkiling oriental in my opinion. The green notes vanish very quickly and leave a beautiful and cosy ylang-ylang and sandalwood trail. I love it as much as I love the original Samsara and I do not limit myself to wearing it only in summer.

Samsara Shine is one of my favorites for the late summer months.
A great scent:I love its signature base(tonka bean,sandalwood,vanilla)and the sweet touch of the floral notes of red berries!

I love it! It seems a bit strong when you first put it on but it has some specific warmth that surrounds you when you wear it. Perfect for cold days, just be prepared for people that will come to you to keep them warm ;)
