Eau de Toilette

The Scoop

Warm, airy and weightless – this is like wrapping yourself in a fluffy Eiderdown comforter and gazing down at the city as the lights begin to glow at dusk. Soft, fresh rose and dreamy orange blossom get a dash of electricity from cinnamon and float on a luxurious cloud of vanilla-tinged benzoin and smooth gaiac wood. Like Costes' cult-favorite first fragrance, Costes No. 2 was created by esteemed perfumer Olivia Giacobetti and is an outstanding example of her gift for creating a diaphanous dreamscape and grounding it with realistic, precise details. We could try to analyze whether it's the sharpness of the cinnamon or the resinous edge of the benzoin that so perfectly counter the velvety rose and ethereal orange blossom – but to be honest, this is so incredibly soothing and cozy that our analytical powers melt away. Sensuous and enveloping.

I like this perfume a lot, it was warm and spicy and bright enough to wear in summer. Definitely cozy and dusky. I noticed the rose and the cinnamon and the benzoin especially. It smelled very good, but a little too hotel-y for me.

This is the softest perfume Ive ever tried, so soft its annoying. Smells vaguely like a lightly spiced rose. Would NEVER buy this, its too plain, too boring, and too barely there!

This is the perfect fragrance to wear with a crisp cotton button-down when you need to feel put-together. It's a bit on the unisex side but still femme enough that you don't smell like you came from a boys' locker room.

I love it. On my skin it lasts for a long, after 8 hours, it's still there!

Pretty, but light and vanished in 5 minutes. At 25.00, would make a great linen wash/spray/room spray.

I need to update my posting. This is nice but so light on me (and my skin holds scent well). I put A LOT on too. Really disappointing but maybe it would work well in the heat.

I'm really liking this too...soft and soothing. Do wish it had more presence though but that might be remedied w/spritzing rather than dabbing.

Love it more than Costes 1. Softer drydown. More subtle.
