Soft sandalwood and vanilla perfect for casual day
I love casual and down-to-earth scents which convey feeling of being outdoors, but many of them are so harsh and chemical. Gypsy Water is such a beautiful exception in this category. The scent is a natural, soft and creamy combination of woods and vanilla spiked with ever-green needles and juniper berries. It has a perfect balance of being casual but not boring, linear but not simple. Gypsy Water is my jeans and sweater companion to cuddle with on cold November nights. Lovely, easy to wear and natural, I could never go wrong wearing this scent.

The lemon and bergamot opening makes me think of a windy day outdoors – refreshing and natural. Yet, right away, the warm rays of sandalwood and vanilla shine through the scent making it soft and comforting. The iris adds just a touch of powder and pine-tree and juniper berries keep the composition winter fresh. The scent has a bit of a linear quality but it does not bother me at all, as the composition is absolutely lovely. It is a soft scent, which makes it a great every day casual scent. And though it is quite light, it does lasts for hours.

Gypsy Water is not the scent that will shock you with its super complex composition or fireworks of notes. But it is a scent that I will take with me on a winter skiing trip, a walk in the park or everyday at work. It was such a pleasure to wear that I finished my sample in no time and now craving for the full bottle. Overall score is 8.5/10

Multigeneric light citrusy slightly sweet slightly woody vaguely floral scent
I was reminded of two perfumes upon donning Byredo GYPSY WATER: Giorgio Armani ACQUA DI GIOIA and Fresh BROWN SUGAR. It's less sweet than both and certainly better made than the former, which can become quite sticky, if liberally applied. These three fragrances are united by their citrusy-sugary freshness, with GYPSY WATER seeming to be made of the best quality materials--as it should be, at a price at least twice if not three times that of the other two.

GYPSY WATER definitely smells nice, no argument there. It reminds me a lot of the entire house of Fresh line-up and could almost be one of those perfumes except for the more nichesque drydown, which features some subtle greenish and floral elements, along with the lightest touch of incense.

I like GYPSY WATER, but probably not enough to acquire a bottle, especially since the longevity is not very good on my skin. I think that for now I'll stick with my house of Fresh perfumes when I'm in the mood for a multigeneric light citrusy slightly sweet slightly woody vaguely floral scent.
