Warm, sweet, spicy, versatile, unisex, agreeable
This is my first wearing of Galleria Parfums Shades of Seduction, an aptly-named warm, sweet, spicy scent that’s cozy and alluring in a modern, unisex fashion, with some of the standout notes being vanilla, cardamom, pink pepper, patchouli, and woods. It definitely leans more sweet than it does spicy—it’s not as spicy as Dusk to Dawn or Victorian Tobacco, for example—but it’s not as creamy and bright as Dream Woods. It’s a very easy-to-wear, relaxing but interesting yet still not overpowering semi-spicy option that’s quite unisex and contemporary while not being too quirky for the mainstream crowd.

Shades of Seduction might actually be the most agreeable of the scents from the line that I’ve smelled so far, just ahead of Dusk to Dawn. One needn’t be a fan of gourmands or a prominent tobacco or leather, for example, to like this, but rather just enjoy the modulated spiced vanilla vibe that is the dominant feel of the fragrance.

The retail pricing is $205 for 100ml, in extrait concentration, the same for all seven initial entries in the line. It performs quite well, not as strong as the very strongest of the line that I’ve tried so far, Victorian Tobacco, but still nicely for a scent of its type that leans toward more cold weather use.

Overall, it’s roughly on par with Dusk to Dawn as far as creativity and utility, still not quite as outstanding as Victorian Tobacco but nonetheless well-executed and, like Dusk to Dawn, quite versatile.

Shades of PDM
I have blind bought all 7 Galleria fragrances. This is my 6th review. I totally get the Layton in this but a smoother, softer version. It opens with an undeniable blast of Layton. Not a sharp and a little sweeter. I get a cranberry scent in this up top. As it dries down , it stays smooth and heads into that Vanilla finish but a darker, woodier vanilla. Not overly sweet. I get the comparison but I wouldn't say it's a direct clone. More of an indirect interpretation that is a four season winner. Great stuff and so far my favorite of the line. The atomizer on Galleria fragrances are beasts as well. If you like Layton then feel free to blind buy away.

Shades of seduction
In the Opening It does remind me very much so of Parfums de Marly Layton and stays that way for about 25 minutes and then starts to get a little sweeter and darker. The patchouli and woods really poke their boner at you as it dries down. There's something almost Oud like that I detect like a tiny bit of stank buried deep in the background. For me this gets an 8/10 I really like it
