Smart

The Scoop
Take a luxurious line-up of sultry heavy-hitters – heady jasmine, luscious vanilla, exotic sandalwood and creamy musk - and blend them carefully with a supple buckskin leather note and what do you get? An intensely sensuous scent that is somehow still mellow and soft. The elements are all there – the rich sweetness, the luminous white flowers, the spiciness – but there is something about the leather that quiets them and holds them in balance so that none of them gets out of hand. If you have ever owned a fine leather watchband that picked up traces of your favorite scents and blended them into a new and magical mix, you will know what we mean. And if you have ever spent time searching in vain for a fragrance that replicated that mix, you will understand why one Luckyscent staffer shrieked for joy when she sniffed Smart for the first time. Smart is not a loud scent, but it has intensity -- the richness of the elements creates a hushed extravagance. Quietly opulent and extremely sexy.

Smart is an absoutely delicious fragrance. It's one of those fragrances that you want to smell all day. People ask constantly what I'm wearing. It's light and sexy at the same time.

I would give this to my niece to wear on day out with her friends... If I had a niece. Pleasant, innocent with a dash of sophistication. A younger woman's fragrance.

A Fallish-powdery scent, with no redeeming qualities.

ooh...smart. this fragrance is my everyday go to. I've noticed actually that as the weather warms up this scent takes on an almost beachy feeling, something I didn't notice in the cooler months. The scent is warm and comforting, but also very clean and fresh. Fresh and Warm aren't usually two notes I find in a fragrance but this one does it so well. I get lots of compliments while wearing this, people leaning in to sniff me. I've heard everything from shaving cream to showers on this one and i guess that must be the leathery note. All in all this is a great, deliciously complex perfume.

Smart is a lovely, soft musk with powdery violet, sandalwood and leather nuances, but it's really nothing more than that and doesn't justify the high price tag.

Beautiful and subtle. I was rather surprised, as I've worn perfumes with leather or buckskin notes in them, and they never seem to smell like the real think. In this case, it's a happy accident. It has a lighter feel, and with my skin chemistry...it gives off an almost incense note during the drydown, which lasts for some time. It also has a very faint sweetish note, which tempers the darker notes. Very bottle worthy. Goes on the short list.

Alittle violet, jasmine, sueded leather, clean, fresh, not soapy. Perfect! Will be my next FB!

Mmmm, soft, cozy, and clean, without being soapy. Brings to mind a variety of odd associations in the opening: Murphy's Oil Soap, Love's Baby Soft, the now-discontinued line of Fresh Milk lotions and soaps. The drydown is worth the wait, as the medicinal notes fade away and one is left with a scent that is all at once warm, soft, and bright, like a string of softly glowing globe lights. I don't get a ton of leather (sorry, buckskin) but there is a twinge of the butter-soft suede note found in scents like Serge Lutens Daim Blond and Annunziata Kama. If you like your leathers exceedingly soft, try Smart.

The only notes that I could pick up on are the buckskin and musk, the fragrance wasn't very feminine and a bit boring.
By Anonymous - from Chicago on 2/16/2011
RAID and my grandma's furniture polish. Sorry, it just has a chemical, early 80's kind of association for me.
By Anonymous on 2/14/2011
Have you ever experienced a fragrance that for the most part you enjoyed but had that little note of nostalgia that you couldn't quite put your finger on and weren't sure if it was a good or bad thing? I experinced that with Smart. I couldn't figure out what that note in the background reminded me of. It seemed like something from the past. Something chemical, almost plastic. And I think that ultimately there is something that reminds me of RAID pesticide in the basenotes of this perfume. It reminds me of my grandparent's summer cabin when I was young. My grandpa would spray for wasps and the scent of RAID always remained in the background. Oddly I don't completely hate this scent but it is an odd association. I'm going to try it again another day to see if I have the same reaction.

This is my favourite of the Andrea Maack collection. Subtle yet complex, the sandalwood and musk keep the floral notes from becoming too sharp.
By Val - Pharmacist from London on 2/5/2011
Smart really does smell like a sweater that contains the gentle ghosts of several oriental fragrances. It's a pleasant blend of powder, musk, sweetness and spice that lasts all day without being loud. It's the kind of scent that makes people want to lean in for a hug.

After two years of chasing the notes of a fragrance that I could love as much as the discontinued Escada Private Collection, this one dropped into my lap. They share very little in common & I wouldn't usually look twice at something with violet, jasmine or sandlewood notes. And yet here it is -- that truly sultry & magnetic fragrance that makes men lean in closer & closer. I love it even more than Private Collection as it doesn't quite go into the maybe-too-sweet phase. As a woman, I don't find this terribly masculine at all -- the leather stays nicely in the background. All I know is that I can stop searching now & am ordering a bottle!

I'm the first to review this? Oh my. I'm shocked no one else has showed up ahead of me to rave about this fragrance. I'm usually not a lover of jasmine, or of violets, or of fragrances with any sort of leather in them. I also tend to be picky and will give up on a scent if it doesn't work perfectly. I love this. It's amazingly well balanced and as the description says, it smells exactly the way a good leather watch band smells when you take it off after wearing a musky-floral perfume. It has amazing staying power but isn't heavy and overwhelming. I'd also add if you're a woman who would love to wear more masculine fragrances because you adore the way they smell on men, but they don't quite work on you, this is one to try. I'm ordering a bottle.
