Here's what other people are saying about Odeur 71...
I've worn this all week. No one has said a word, unlike when I wear one of my more signature scents like Tihota or What We Do in Paris is Secret . But I love this scent. It's deeper than a traditional skin scent, but still light. The description is slightly challenging to wrap my brain around, as I know the scent of hot lightbulb, which might be an inspiration, but certainly not what I smell on myself wearing this. We all have a personal skin smell, right? Not that we can detect our own, necessarily. However, if I could choose that smell, I would choose this. So I'll buy the full bottle and come as close as I can to this actually being MY scent.

Never mind the esoteric description. If you love the smell of fresh-cut green wood, spring leaves just opening in a Northern forest, that first promise of spring, something that manages to be both bracing and sensual, get this. There is nothing like it on the market and though I am buying it now, it reminds me of one lover who wore it a decade ago. Wear it to remind someone of you--'cause it will because there is nothing else like this on the market! (By the way, it works for bold females as well as for males!)

Totally can't smell any lightbulbs or dust in this one - it's really strong, spicy, and masculine at first, and eventually fades to a warm, male sweetness. Doesn't smell terribly novel, but it's nice all the same.

I like everything in this scent except the floral note. It's not so pronounced to be unwearable by a man, but I wish it was even more understated in the opening.The drydown's good, but I've been told more than once that I smell like clean laundry when I wear it (diluted fabric softener is cheaper). I'd wear this in summer when it's over 85 degrees in the plant. Skin scents are the way to go in hot, humid weather.

I really love this fragrance. Slightly more forgiving than 53, with less of an alcoholic tone to it. Has a nice, warm, spicy, verdant, metallic smell that is surprisingly easy to wear.

71 was unexpectedly strong when I first sprayed it on my wrist. I didn't like it at first, but after about an hour or so I found myself smelling my wrist. I also felt its more masculine than unisex; its spicy and didn't really work for me. Its good, and I like it, but not for me. This would be something I'd much rather smell on my boyfriend :)

This particular scent wears very well, and goes through subtle variances as the day goes by...I have personally found that it reaches it's "peak" after a couple hours on the body and gives off it's best.

It's a well crafted fragrance that delivers a herbacious and harmonious blend that captures the imagination. It's clean but what is so intriguing is it smells of tea, and has drier note of what smells like tobacco, and a barely perceptible hint of peppery bee balm. Also mix in a splash of downy wafting out of a drier vent at the same time. I guess what people call ozone is what I liken to the fact that this airy fragrance has a dynamic quality that almost breathes with you because each inhalation is different as the moments pass. It smells like a man after he takes a shower and before he puts his deoderant on, which is to say that it's familiar but totally unique all at once.

it smells very masculine on me... definitely not my type of scent..

so sad... this smells like a cool-toned chanel no. 5 on me... really, i have one on each hand right now to compare. not getting any hot lightbulb at all... the little bit of ozone is nice, but the intense cool/masculine feel is too much for me. i'll stick with CDG 3...

to me it smells like pencil shavings, not in a bad way. like the soft warm wood smell but also the metallic smell of the graphite. all in all it is a little too cool-toned for my taste, reminiscent of those "sport" fragrances, with only a bit more depth and interest.

I've been wearing this since it came out, and I absolutely love it. It makes me feel sexy and it's a scent that not many people even know about, so you feel totally unique

smells like the 80's. close your eyes and smell it. it is a little strange and unusual like day-glo socks and sideways pony tails definately unique

Love this scent. I don't get anything burning as expected nor do I smell dust on a hot light bulb; and I have enough dust on my light bulbs to know the smell. I do think that this smells like Odeur 53 but more serious and manly. It knocks 53 out of the ring. this being said I love 53. 2 amazing scents.

John from Boston has his definition of synesthesia wrong, and not sure how it's germane to the review of this fragrance, although as a synaesthetic, I can tell you that this fragrance smells like a wound cut with warm glass. And that's a good thing. (John, if you can taste the color blue, you might be a synaesthetic. Everyone can imagine how dish soap tastes just by smelling it, however.)

Every scent is unique to each individual, so this is just one womans opinion/experience, I thought it smelt like an incontinent old woman, so its not for me.....

*stimulus of one sense*

Synesthesia is a scientific phenomena of the five senses where the stimulus of of sense creates an unintended automatic response in another sense. Sorta like you you can taste dish washing liquid by smelling it. If you know the feeling of a hot lamp or light bulb this would be the smell. Has to be experienced.
