Oh So Disappointing :'(
Let me begin by saying I have a nose that can detect smells a mile away. Unfortunately, after applying Gypsy Water and even after sticking my nose directly on my wrist, I couldn't smell barely a scent of any notes, so I reapplied more. Nope! No smell. I even wondered if I had covid despite being able to smell and taste other things, just not Gypsy Water. Then I thought that maybe my wrist and body temperature was too cold, so I got into bed and under the covers trying to elicit a scent. That helped a bit, but not much...something mutedly sweet was there, but not remarkable. Maybe it's my body chemistry? I'm wondering if the faint and underperforming scent is the reason that Byredo offers Gypsy Water in hand and body lotion and hair perfume so that you can layer the fragrance to be able to smell it? Oh well, I tried, and I'm so jealous (and happy) for everyone who can smell this fragrance. Thank you Surrender To Chance for offering this fragrance in sample sizes.
