Here's what other people are saying about Mojave Ghost...
Lovely! Musky, woody, warm, slightly floral--all perfectly balanced and perfectly subtle. I wouldn't quite call it a skin scent, but it does seem to blend into the skin rather than sitting atop it, if that makes sense. It's a fragrance that would lead one to say "you smell amazing" as opposed to "what are you wearing." Great for everyday. As much as I like it, I must agree with everyone else. It fades SUPER quickly. I'm going to try using it with a primer to see if that stretches it out a bit longer.

I should've gone with my gut--"looks like it smells soapy". Yup, smells soapy. No one is going to smell you until they "figure out" what you're wearing. The first thing I thought when I wore "Spirit of Dubai Baz" was "What? This smells like powder and it costs this much?" Later, I started really smelling it and thinking about it, and I came to appreciate it... but a Nurse told me the other day, "Are you wearing a soft powder fragrance?" That's what they're going to smell--the first thing you smell--they're not going to try to discern the individual elements (they have lives to live), they're going to go with the first overall impression the individual components. Soap.

This smells like a grown-up version of Cacharel's Noa, one of my first perfumes. Classy, clean, unobtrusive, would make a good scent for the office. Doesn't last very long.

Powdery, dry, desert, dusty, clean in the way that a desert is clean, empty in the way that a desert is empty. I can't wear it because it leaves me feeling unsettled. I gave it to a friend without mentioning that, and I think she likes it ok.

More sophistication than a shampoo, just a style note. Not fresh clean. Housewife suburban bathroom with carpet and a nightlight. Mom had little clay pink spheres in a clear plastic box under the sink. The pink powder smell. The man component is at the top of some white flower that reminds me of shampoo. Garnier Fructis? There is a persisting shaving+whipped cream that is really nice. I do think the clean sweetness that is not very powerful, makes it truly unisex. Cologne people would call it "weak." Sexy scent for an older woman. Inventive but still polite choice for a middle-aged man who drives the speed limit and goes to church. Especially with other man smells in the mix, like a shaving cream.

This smells like a new package of baby diapers freshly opened up and stuck to my skin. Clean, but unappealing.

I loved this sample--beautiful, casual and unfussy and sensual. A perfect every day perfume. However, there is zero longevity here. It is almost undetectable 30 min later, so this is a no go for me. Maybe the perfume oil that comes in a roller ball will have more longevity.

i ordered sunday by buredo to test and luckyscent sent me this one dont know why but everytime i get sent the wrong one its the best outcome because each and every swap is beautifull i blush with shame. on to the review: quirky fun playfull "milky" feeling start right from the beginning. then a full turnaround to a classic full on playfull flowery MUSK base. to the end a sparkling sillage is there behaving like a cologne. anosmia is quick with this one but its there with you..

The spiced, airy pear (sure, why not) at the top is delightful, but it may be a joy mainly for the wearer, as this modulates fairly quickly into a sandalwood that retains much of violet’s cool and a bit of magnolia’s close clamminess. (Magnolia being as it is the violet is drowned out entirely for a minute, but be patient.) Ambrette at the top and cedar at the base keep things warm in a fading-of-the-day fashion; I couldn’t discern any large ambergris presence, but I suspect it’s the source of an intermittent twinkling effect on the way to drydown. Sillage is minimal but pleasant.

Unobtrusive, everyday, humdrum, run of the mill, chorus girl who hides timidly on the back row so as not to be noticed if she make a faux pas. Any-day scent to carry you though routine errands, etc.

Destined to become a favorite.

This smells DELICIOUS! The magnolia and cedar is strongest on me. It's a very soft, creamy. It dries down close to the skin fairly quickly, but I feel like investing in the Oil instead of/in combination with the decant will fix that problem.

This review is for the perfume oil, which, in all probability, does not go through the same developments as the EDP... I find Mojave Ghost to be a beautifully haunting, fruity-floral, somewhat linear scent. Unfortunately for me, as a devoted fan of ambergris, I sniffed, and sniffed, but alas, could not detect it anywhere... And unfortunately for my wallet, I think I will now have to try the EDP as well, in the hopes that my beloved ambergris will make an appearance!!! For those of you who work closely with others as I do, this oil would be a lovely choice, wearing close and clean throughout the day. This lasted approximately 6 hours on my somewhat dry winter skin. Planning on adding body lotion to my aresenal!

A scent whose name truly suits it, because it is hauntingly gorgeous! Very compelling as in can't stop sniffing my wrist for the hours it lasts! I get a LOT of compliments with this gem. Not your ordinary frag and obviously some don't 'get' it, I'm so glad I do. Now I hope I get it for Christmas!

This stuff is phenomenal! Beautiful magnolia with a creamy, woody base and tons upon tons of ambrette. I actually don't get anything fruity, which is perfectly fine with me, anyway, I still love it. Lasts forever on my skin and projects like crazy.

"Like a pear grown on another planet" is spot on. Fruity without being sweet or obvious. It's like sampling local perfectly ripe fruit while in a lush garden on an overseas trip to a sophisticated, sunny, and exotic location. After a few hours that ripe fruit is gone though, and it's mostly floral. Too bad, it seemed quite promising but seems to disappear.

I was head over heels with my first bottle of Mojave Ghost. The second bottle I ordered had to be defective. No smell other than alcohol.....disappointed. I am afraid to order another. I just hate this.

I wanted to love this. I live in the desert and the name alone is wonderful. Other Byredo fragrances have been wonderful--La Tulipe and Inflorescence to name two This one--I must be anosmic. I get a faint floral for about 10 minutes and then it's gone. Vanished. Ghosted off my wrist. Anosmic is a personal reaction, so try it and see if works for you.

The name is definitely cool and based on the notes I was very excited to try this,but after wearing it 5 times I'm disappointed. The "Ghost" part of the name seems to be referring to the fact that it vanishes immediately and I can barely smell it even an hour after putting it on. It wears more like an EDT than an EDP. I have a very sensitive nose and am not anosmic to anything, but even after an extremely liberal application it is still very faint. It's pleasant enough when I bury my nose in it, but I want to be able to smell the scent I'm wearing as I go through the day. After I put this on I forget I'm wearing it because it's just so faint.In my opinion it needs a much stronger concentration!

I received this as part of the Byredo discovery set. Mojave Ghost is lovely - I can't stop sniffing my wrist. It is soft and haunting - unlike anything I have smelled before. This one is going on my wish list.
