Not always rainbows and butterflies
[short review]

Does this perfume recall Stash Eau de Parfum Elixir? Yes, it does!
Does this perfume recall Santal Blush? Yes, it does!
Does this perfume recall Jeux de peau? Yes, it does!
I wonder if this perfume recalls Gucci pour Homme (2003) Eau de Toilette? Not really much, but it shows a vibe of it!
I wonder if the Adam Levine for Women price is similar to the price of any of the mentioned perfumes? Nah, not really!

Adam Levine for Women is an interesting very inexpensive perfume, with nice quality sandalwood, well-spiced, sprinkled with saffron, jasmine, marigold and powdery nuances, sweetened with vanilla and heated with benzoin. It is marketed as a feminine fragrance and bottled in a microphone shaped flask. The association with the name of rocker Adam Levine, lead singer and guitar of Maroon 5, also meant that this perfume was never taken seriously. This is not a feminine fragrance. Like Stash Eau de Parfum Elixir or Santal Blush, it is totally Unisex. Stash Eau de Parfum Elixir managed to rise to fame, but Adam Levine for Women has remained lost in the annals of time. Probably Sarah Jessica Parker appeals more to the masses than Adam Levine. As far as I am concerned, it is much to my taste and not at all generic.
Adam Levine for Women stands for an amber (or benzoin), woody, spicy, sexy, and slightly floral autumn/winter perfume. It reminds me of an autumn day with a warm jumper, coffee in hand and about to eat a slice of vanilla-scented pumpkin pie. This perfume is great for someone who loves a warm, spicy, woody scent. It's a little sweet too, and I consider it to have a unisex rather than feminine slant. It will disappoint any customer looking for a fresh and floral feminine scent. I may even go a little further by stating this perfume to be a hate or love affair, depending on your scent preferences. Based on the fact that I usually like a woody sweet oriental fragrance, I may also conclude that I am bound to kike this perfume very much.
However, it disappoints me a little when it comes to performance. It quickly becomes a skin scent and a quite intimate one after 4 hours. It dries down very quickly, and when spraying, I can't smell much beyond an arm's length away from my skin. You'd better spray some puffs on your clothes as well.
It smells much more expensive than it is, and while it's not exotic, warm or revolutionary, I found it very relaxing and warm, and quite suitable for pretty much any occasion. It's certainly one of the more interesting celebrity fragrances as far as how well it works, not being a chemical disaster, too watery and weak, or otherwise a cloying candy mess. Although it doesn't have many notes, it's well blended and creates a very nice, warm envelope around it.
The perfumer was Yann Vasnier, who, among others, made the Tom Ford perfumes Plum Japonais, Santal Blush and Black Orchid Parfum, among several other Tom Ford, Jo Malone and Mark Jacobs perfumes. Interestingly, he also made Toy Boy for Moschino. It's a quite appealing perfumer resumé.
The price is a real coup and some dealers are now trying to get rid of his stock. Enjoy this beautiful spicy sandalwood fragrance at a ripe banana price. It has a terrific value for money. I do certainly recommend it.

Music: Maroon 5 - "She Will Be Loved"

Budget sandalwood
It is a sweet floral sandalwood scent, but I'd prefer if it was heavier in the sandalwood. it becomes predominantly floral with time. The quality of the ingreients is not the best, but it is what can be expected in this price point.

Overall, quite good quality for the price, but the balance of the notes and accords in the aroma could be improved.

Tagetes, doesn't have to be
Tagetes I have every year in the garden, from early until November pure bloom beautifully in all colors. In the fragrance is 100% tagetes to sniff out, beautiful in the garden but I do not necessarily have to smell. Spicy and citrusy but warm is not with me, although vanilla is in it.
Is definitely unisex but for me he is nothing, will probably move on

If this is what sandalwood smells like...
... then I am blessed.
I was looking for "a slightly different fragrance" - not just floral or sweet or fruity or fresh. Nothing is against these evergreens, no, not at all. Still, every now and then I'm overcome with the desire to try something different, unusual, and thus make my fragrance wardrobe more special.
Jeremy recommended it as a good celebrity fragrance and after some research, it won me over.

And hach, it's where beautiful. It smells so soft and woody. Kind of what sandalwood looks like. A light wood, growing in warm climes.
The benzoin and vanilla give it a pleasant, cozy sweetness. The vanilla doesn't come across as pushy, but soft, nothing stings.
He is not heavy, but also not light, you can smell it already clearly.
I think you also notice the saffron in the opening, which is a bit harsher. It calms down though and then the woods come in tow with the vanilla and benzoin. Finally, the base notes dominate.
Saffron and sandalwood crushed with vanilla bean and crushed benzoin.
The fragrance is lovely, cozy, warm, present, soft, precious and not boring. Special!

I don't think it smells masculine. If then unisex - men are welcome to use it. A woman can wear it well, of that I have no doubt.

The bottle is fitting: a microphone. The lid is shaped like a microphone, this "woven metal" on top looks like a microphone basket.
Playful is also the black spray hose, which transports the fragrance upwards when spraying, which is namely black, like a cable on the microphone. I like that again, this attention to detail.

The Juice is quite oily when spraying on the skin - this gives me the impression of value, by the fact that the sandalwood is oily, I have the impression that abundant and good wood was used. Of course, this can only be a marketing trick ;)

Conclusion: I love it. I haven't smelled anything comparable ever. He is so special and beautiful.

Hold it for women
I came through a fairly well-known YouTuber on this fragrance he had touted as a unisex and very good sandalwood fragrance. Well at the low price immediately bought blindly and then the disappointment. So mMn he is 1000‰ for women and so much Promille you would also need to classify him as a men's perfume ;) Way too sweet, the sandalwood note just very hidden and it's apricot/peach scent is present hard as nails. The rose still comes out quite strong. Those notes don't go away either. I'll maybe try it on my sister.
Unfortunately, for me a bad buy but he is for women a pretty solid perfume that I would also like to smell one.

Blind chicken can find a peach
Spontaneously I associate a fruit, also orange, at least a citrus fruit, with zest, only slightly acidic plus something very delicate smoky. The citrus disappears with the top note. What remains is a light scent of zest, the other fruit and a hint of smoke. At the second test I also mean to recognize a short undertone of fig.

The fragrance has a light, bitter sweetness.

I'm thinking of gardenia at the first test, but at the second the impression of gardenia is even stronger. At the same time the fruit unfolds in full opulence.

In the course the heart note forms a soft, fruity-powdery melange. What fruit is that? It's hard to tell. It is most likely to go in the direction of peach, so the fruit could not be a fruit at all, but also osmanthus. Flowers are there anyway, but the Gardenienstelldichein lasted to my joy only few minutes. Instead, another flower appears now: Peony?

Furthermore, the fragrance is rather sweet, but not maltol-sweet, nor honey-sweet, but much more discreetly blossom-sweet. Also in the background there is a hint of resin, maybe even tea, so that the overall impression is balanced and does not fall into sweet-fruity arbitrariness. This ever more powdery resin and tea breath could also indicate a little iris. Iris sometimes arrives in my nose like this.

In summary I feel the heart note as a relief of powdery peach/Osmanthus teas, which becomes less sweet and a bit tart in the course of time.

Gene base, there is no significant change, except that the intensity quickly dwindles and the fruity is the first to fade into the background until this experience ends gently powdery and minimally smoky and woody.

The whole fragrance looks very natural, friendly, cultivated and high quality.

It is intense in head and heart note, but no wummser and I can imagine it on both women and men.

The shelf life of about 4 hours, not counting light, later remains of powder, was surprisingly short for me after the brilliant and varied entry phase
However, after 12 hours of washing my hands, during which my forearms got wet, I suddenly have the scent very clearly in my nose again. Maybe he needs a little more humidity than on these two summer days with temperatures around 30 degrees? Perhaps the course and durability are somewhat different in less extreme temperatures and rainy weather?

This fragrance is No. 1 of my blind test series, I have tested it completely blind. I also wrote the comment text before I knew the resolution. I took it 1:1 from my puzzle blog, so it might read a little different than my other comments.

Many thanks to FrauLohse for the rehearsal and many thanks to all who contributed!
4-5 more samples are waiting for testing...
I'll report!

Pleasing Powdery, Vanilla & Woods Overtake The Leathery Florals & Spices
Seeing Adam Levine's fragrance I was intrigued. After all, the frontman of Maroon 5 is incredibly sexy (at the least to me) and I was curious what he would slap his moniker on and call his own in today's world of celebrity fragrances. Would it be sex in a bottle?
The first time I splashed it on , I did indeed, smell sexual skin. Was my mind deluding me? Perhaps. But this is a skin scent. I'd say it is the Indian Jasmin that's responsible for the animalic smell I was getting. There's a bit of leather going on here and Saffron is the culprit there. Adam Levine for Women is a pleasing, powdery, vanilla, sandalwood skin scent. Hours later, light sweet florals make their way in and announce themselves. The leather and florals may make an entrance, but they stay in the corner most of the time, talking to the spices.
The longer this sits on me, the more powdery and woodsy it becomes. It's not a fragrance to dazzle but more a perfume to relax with, to enjoy pleasantly and one to wear in cooler weather with blazers, open neck shirts and scarfs tossed nonchalantly.
It's soft and feminine and its projection is close to the skin. Share it at times you want to be close with someone. Its lasting power is quite good-minimal four hours.
Simple rectangular bottle with the name emblazoned across it with a pretty cap. Perhaps layering it will bring out the sillage, I don't know, but there are sets available. This is a designer fragrance that reminds me of Flowerbomb or Hypnotic Poison(not as spicy) on its drydown for me.

Adam Levine for Women
I've tested this one out a couple of times now. I can't stand the men's version but I admit that this women's version is better than that one. I still don't see this fragrance as being anything really outstanding though. It's pleasant enough, but nothing really special. For some reason I can smell gardenia in this, yet it doesn't seem to have gardenia in it. I am not a gardenia fan by any means. I usually find it too strong and overpowering and I don't like that I'm detecting it here. There are very few fragrances who manage to incorporate gardenia just right so it blends in instead of standing out. This perfume seems generic to my nose and a tad boring. In a sea of sweet-fruity-floral celebrity fragrances, this one does stand out as being different but unfortunately something seems to be missing that could have made it totally unique and wonderful. For me, this one is not "full bottle purchase" worthy.

A very interesting celebrity scent in terms of its impact. It's not a chemical disaster, too watery or a cloying candy mess.

Surprisingly similar to "HARD CANDY", which is also (un)surprisingly dirt-cheap. This amps up the (effervescent, candied) oranges, though.
