Ecco Bella Eau de Parfum Spray Ambrosia -- 1 fl oz
I see some people really like this product so I do not intend to offend anyone with it. To each their own! However, I found this particular scent to be overpowering and literally eye watering. I could smell this through the unopened box, inside an unopened shipping box. When I opened the bottle I almost fell over it was so strong! I knew I couldn't keep the bottle in the house and decided to freecycle it (later on I found out I could have contacted customer service since I had not opened it). I sealed the unopened bottle in a plastic zip bag I had received another product in, put that inside plastic yogurt container and then put it in a paper bag, folded over and rubber banded closed. It went home with someone else the next day but we smelled it for more than 24 hours later. That is some strong stuff. I couldn't imagine wearing it!

Complex and deep
A little goes a long way with this scent. I usually spray a tissue and touch my skin with the scented tissue. This is a wonderfully complex, fascinating, vintage scent, which feels very sophisticated yet nostalgic. It may be too traditional for some people, and also too heady for others.
I don't feel that the patchouli overwhelms the scent as others have said. I think this is a good winter scent, when the days are short, grey, and overcast . . . it kind of reminds me of Lush's Karma scent, but again, it's more complex.
Ecco Bella scents do not last all day long, but that I like . . . I cannot tolerate most scents which are so strong and chemical, with fixatives. These are lighter and do not have the chemical binders of most fragrances, thus they don't make you sick to wear them. But this scent is not for the faint at heart. It has a lot of power.

Mmmmmm.... I Love it!! : )
This is totally my favorite scent and it lasts forever! One spray is all you need! It makes me feel powerful every time I wear it. I am sooo excited and happy to find it here because I cannot find it in stores where I live and now I get to wear it everyday instead of just for special occasions! : )

for patchouli people only
just like the previous reviewer, MomofLG, said about the patchouli overpowering everything else. the description of the scent was so misleading. boo! i use this on occasion for aromatherapy purposes, but i don't like patchouli so much, so this bottle will last a lONG TIME. i think maybe i just smelled it too much as a teenager, idk. this scent does last last last, though, unlike the Bourbon Vanilla:(

This scent would be perfect if they took out the patchouli! The patchouli overrides the other scents and lasts the longest. I have never been a big fan of patchouli and mistakingly thought that the other ingredients would make up for it...I was wrong.
