Matthew Williamson Fragrance Reviews

I was gifted this rather beautiful large bottle of MW yesterday by a wonderfully generous (Angel wearing) colleague who knows I love perfumes! What a doll! I wore it to work today and was complimented several times on my fragrance by different people.

This is in a similar vein to Amarige to me but much lighter and less spiced. I would have sworn it was a fruity floral, I don't get any vanilla but now after wearing for a day, I understand the oriental part - it is the opening which deceives with a massive burst of lime, gardenia and jasmine which quickly (& I mean quickly, like 5 mins or like walking straight into a flower shop, then out again) drops down to something light and imminently work and daytime friendly and highly inoffensive.

I am potty about gardenia so this bottle will get a good workout with me but will definitely be relegated to the "safe" zone in my perfume drawer! After wearing Cinnabar, I cannot detect more than an aldehydic hint of cinnamon in this fragrance, which is fine by me - nothing can (or ever will, I suspect) replace Cinnabar for cinnamon perfumes for me!

Finished my last bottle a couple of weeks ago. Such a shame this has been discontinued. It was a very classy and classic fragrance.

This is very floral with a fresh spicy edge, a lot of lime and ginger. Gardenia too strong for me though.

I just got a sample of this, its quite nice. The initial blast is not brilliant but as it dried down I started to really enjoy it. Not sure if I'd purchase it but it is a lovely everyday perfume. Reminds me a bit of Amarige d'Givenchy

I was disappointed with this after the unique collection - this is mainstream and boring. I can't remember what I didn't like about it, but I gave it away to a friend who didn't like it either!!

A big (yet soft), tropical, creamy, white floral scent paying tribute to the beautiful gardenia flower!

Amarige M went on holiday to a beautiful luxury beach resort to relax. She had massages every day with exotic oils & enjoyed the vast array of intoxicating white flowers that grew on the terrace. She drank fresh lime & ginger cocktails stirred with a cinnamon stick. At night she rubbed in a creamy gardenia & vanilla body souffle & fell asleep with a smile on her deepest, softest heliotrope bed. Her dreams were filled with sugar & spice & all things nice.

I struggle to enjoy big, ballsy white florals but this is rather lovely & quite luxe-beach-babe. It may have the olfactory equivalent of everything bar the kitchen sink but it is not at all "synthetic" & will be a crowd-pleaser for summer.

This may be soft and not too sweet-but it is dreadfully synthetic. The opening is fresh, lovely, and I stop liking the scent within 15-30 min. The florals are a good combination, but they leave the kind of strange chemical taste in the mouth when I inhale deeply. Enough synthetic florientals already.......

I wore it one day and liked it, tried it again another day, and I felt irritated by the fake quality. I will try it again, to try to identify how long the cinnamon lasts, and figure out how long it takes to dry down. I was so put off last time I didn't try to further nasally understand this scent.

I love how the floral stays so true to smell and the Cinnamon is to die for! Actual cinnamon. Unlike anything else I have ever sniffed. I really think this is well done.

I bought this reading a beautiful description made me curious. But I did not like it:( Very weird fragrance, made me sick. Sorry, the packaging was so beautiful. Would make a great gift, adults maybe?

I agree this is a beautiful fragrance. It is, in my opinion, not a perfume for someone very young, although it is not an "old lady" smell.

It is a lovely warm and quite alluring scent, and perfect for a romantic evening.

You can usually get this perfume for a very reasonable price.

This one is a dream, a tropical dream without the typical coconut tropical thing going on.

Somehow the spices combine with the jasmine (sambac?) and turn very beachy and beautiful. I never would have guessed the number of spices in this one, elegantly blended and crafted.

I bought my bottle for a song at a discounter, but I probably would have paid more for this lovely scent.

Beautiful fragrance. I found many negative reviews, but I do not agree. It is very soft, and unfolds into a very interesting fragrance. I love the gardinia in it. I don't find that the frutiness is long lasting.
