Eau de Hongrie Fragrance Reviews

I see a few comments that say this is a dupe/ similar to Ginestet Botrytis. I have both and I totally disagree! The honey in Botrytis is waxy and sticky whereas the honey in this is light and sweet, almost crisp. The wine note in this meshes beautifully with the honey, I get equal parts wine and honey and the drydown is where the immortelle shines through. Botrytis has a dried fruit base, I get beeswaxy honey and preserved fruit. Both are beautiful but very different, imo!

I’ve run across a few honey scents as of late, as this is one more to add to the pile. Eau de Hongrie’s sweet, but not overly so. It’s a buttery, somewhat floral, somewhat citric scent that’s steeped in a dry, woody-honey, but there’s not much else to look at. The company blurb declares this to be a “modern version of ‘Eau de la Reine de Hongrie’” but I don't get the connection. I wrote a piece on the Osmothèque a while back where I sniffed their holding of the original “Eau de Hongrie" and I recall it being camphorous and quite herbal. This is neither camphorous nor herbal, and I’m having a tough time differentiating between it and the myriad of other honey scents I’ve smelled, some of which were celebuscent cheapies. It’s pleasant enough, but it reminds me too much of a muted Ginestet Botrytis—a better, more interesting scent overall.

This smells really lovely.. You smell the booze, and also dryness from the woodiness and immortelle, and kind of nutty.. this dry sweetness reminds me a bit of PG's Praline de Santal or L`Artisan's Mechant Loup.. It smells lovely and very luxurious.

I want to buy this. My friend got one for her birthday, and wow, it s just amazing. This is something, I ve never smelled. This fragrance is just unique.I applied a little, and is lasted for a quite long time. I applied some on my shirt, and it lasted for almost 3 days. It's very refreshing, I don't consume wine , but this perfume wants me to try that Hungarian wine. It changes your day, when my friends smelled the smell, they were just astonished.

I think I m in love with this perfume. I see someone mentioned Tokaji wine. I ve never tasted that wine, but I can feel a wine aroma. It's just great. I want to try that wine too maybe I ll have a greater experience with this perfume.

100 ml for 165$ is a good investment. It lasts long, it has a strong aroma. As soons as you open it and apply it, it maintains that aroma, it doesn't give you any new surprises in that sens. I like that is unisex, my husband tried it, and he liked it a lot, although his not that perfume user guy. He loves this one. When we went out last week to meet with some friends, we applied the perfume, and since than our friends said that this aroma is our aroma. It has a natural smell, it reminds you of nature.

It's worth to purchase it. It s just fascinating. It s full of surprises. It has a dominant smell, after you have applied it, you see the other nuances. It s just briliant. Combining wine, perfume, it gives you a life taste you ve never imagined.

This is something unique. If you are familiar with wines, you ll know the feeling.I think I never experinced something similar. It s like when you are reading a text and suddently you see beyond the text, and decode the message.

It opens with boozy scent of raisins and honey on me, quite strong. Then dries down to smooth spicy honey scent with tonka - reminds me of chocolate. It's not too sweet, just a beautiful gourmand. Longevity and projection are great.

I had the pleasure of sampling this beauty today. It had such a light sweet gossamer honey note with the lightest touch of wine - just a kiss of wine. I think my eyes rolled into the back of my head when I sniffed it. I will say that it wore pretty much exactly like Hedonist - same honey note - and they were too similar for me to justify purchasing it, but all day long, I kept sniffing my wrists and sighing.

This fragrance is mesmerizing. I love it, and it being unisex is new for me. I've only purchased female fragrances but I think this will be my first. If you're into honey, this one is for you.

This is a tricky one, cause I know very well the Tokaji Aszú! If you expect this to be just like that, you will be disappointed, however if you stay open to the experience and just wait to see how the perfumer interprets this delicious wine specialty, you will be surprised by the subtility and research that is behind it! It has the winey aspect, it has the sweet aspect, it has the spicy-citrusy side that are all present, but taken to a different level, rather impressively! Very big sillage, if you like that, you should definitely try!

I must update my review, to be fair, as I sampled this perfume again. Hongrie opens quietly, but it blossoms as it remains on the skin, retaining a bit of complexity into the drydown. It smells like honey syrup and maybe some herbs and a little fruit. Sillage is decent, wafting up to my nose here and there but never overpowering. I still think this is a cousin to Botrytis and Escada Collection, but a little more down-to-earth and more natural. I am tired of Botrytis and will sell it. Hongrie is a perfume I might consider for purchase as something in the same vein, yet different.

Dears, this is the best gourmand-honey-wine scent, and yes, this is so Hungary! Ez igen! Ez a magyar virtus parfümben. Telt, kerek ízek és aromák, ilyennek képzelem el a magyar illatot! Köszönjük, Viktória!

My newest crush... When I was about 10 years old, my parents brought Tokaji from their trip to Hungary, they allowed me to taste a tiny drop of it only - and all those childhood memories just came back all of a sudden. Mesmerizing scent!

FOR A WOMAN: It looks like Viktoria has concocted a fragrance that allows you to rest in peace while you're still alive. Welcome to your tomorrow. This has all the fancy add-ons to pacify your hedonist ways. The girly aspects are outlined by the continuum of maple. In the fragrance world, the note of jasmine can be a little nudnik but here, it rests subtly under the balsamic work never interfering in Hongrie's catering purpose of satisfying sweet tooths. Heymoe9, if I could give you 17 balloons, I would. I wholeheartedly agree with your comparison. This does parallel the Original Hedonist. Peachy-floral vs. Honey floral: That's the dichotomy of the fragrances in question.

FOR A MAN: Unless you're Ruby Rhod from the 5th Element, welcome to your NOT so promising future. For masculine purposes, this could benefit from a different kind of spirit(alcohol) for a certain kind of booziness. The fellas see wine in the line up and want "wino." Do keep in mind, this fragrance isn't meant to be boozy. The tokaji in conjunction with everything honey fortifies this as a feminine fragrance. The lemon and grapefruit is baby-faced and doesn't really add the requisite umph to qualify this as unisex(the citrus was the last line of defense before deeming this totally feminine). While wearing this fragrance, you'll definitely learn something new about yourself. You're gonna find out how much you can truly tolerate honeyed fragrances because this has some serious hang time. On another note, this is a jasmined version of Stephane Humbert Lucas's Une Nuit a Doha.

FOR WHOMEVER CARES: I think Fragrantica's gender-neutral tag gives way to unfair pressure. If they had labeled this feminine only, it wouldn't be scrutinized for not living up to the label of unisex.

Ooh, I really like this!
Just got my samples today and tried this one first. I have a horrible head cold and this perfume even bypasses my stuffed nose and invaded my senses with a smooth opening of honey, then the wine starts to blossom.
I don't get much citrus, but the clove and sandlewood are stars in this. After 2 hours it is still wonderful. I hate to say it, but it reminds me of the original hedonist, for a better price.
I see a full bottle in my future.

I also received the sample, its smells very nice but very strong and long lasting... I think the sample is gonna last for a while before i decide to buy the bottle... (though the bottle is 100ml which is big enough to last for a while. a good investment :)

I love Tokaji wine, so I bought a sample of this fragrance and it is wonderfully reproducing the spirit of tokaji without making you feel you are wearing a wine on your body. (You wouldnt smell like you are drunk lol)
It is sweet, powerful and long lasting.

Oh,how I would love to try this perfume! I adore boozy scents and this one has some of my favorite ingredients. The addition of tokaji wine makes terribly intriguing.

That's the problem when I browse Fragrantica. It can turn into a bit of a Tantalus agony at times. Sigh.
