Here's what other people are saying about Imperial...
The most beloved of all scents from the house of Boadicea is this powdery Oriental beauty showcasing one of the most beautiful English lavenders I have come across. The perfume opens with this gorgeous lavender surrounded by birch, rosewood and angelica. The brief heart is all floral with notes of freesia, rose, jasmine and geranium. The perfume settles on an ambery patchouli note surrounded by slight hints of sandalwood, labdanum, leather, oud, musk, guaiac and sandalwood. The overall feeling is of regal warmth just as the perfume is named. Unisex with moderate to strong projection and very good longevity.

This scent is complex and fascinating: it's cold and clear and sharp, like a knife in winter. But it is undoubtedly regal and commanding. This is the perfume of a winter queen: powerful and beautiful. The lavender and birch draw you into the halls of her palace where you are haunted by notes of rosewood and white flowers. Wandering deeper, you encounter the rich oud, sandalwood, and patchouli. Though the notes at times war against one other, the result is a stunningly elegant and sophisticated scent that is at once unique and haunting.

Smells like some kind of medicinal herbal tea sweetened with too much honey. I can smell every note, and they all seem to clash. Very unbalanced. It could be my skin, as other reviewers seem to really like this one. Try if you want to smell like an apothecary, but not for me at all.

The French have an expression - jolie laide - which means beautifully ugly. This is a jolie laide sense in the best of ways. There is a tension between the oud and the florals that shifts back and forth as the 'battle' surges and retreats that keeps this interesting all day long.

gentlemen, this fragrance is very nice. having recently ordered a slew of BtV fragrances, i have discovered a number of very likable scents from this house. Imperial has a very pleasant opening but i find its longevity to be most impressive. the individual components of this elixir combined well to produce a quality product and as such, i've resigned myself to a full bottle purchase in the future.

Having ordered the sample with doubts about whether I could handle the strength of these ingredients, I enjoyed the first whiff very much. I let it dry down, and wanted to just roll in it the way I've seen canines roll deliriously in something they've found with smell. It's beautiful and sophisticated. It reminds me of something just out of reach of my memory that made me happy in the past. Love it.
