This scent is sort of soapy and fresh. I had to scrub. The sapodilla (think pear) is front and center with the magnolia and violet only adding some color around the edges. Easily forgettable. Reviews. It doesn't last long though, maybe 4-5 hours with very soft projection. This scent is welcoming and familiar. I have grown to really appreciate this perfume. Longevity is superb - I get 8 hours if not more. Huge waste of a good exotic sounding name on an otherwise light floral fragrance that is somewhat boring and could have been made anytime between 1970-2000. For sure, I will try other Byredo fragrances soon, my next purchase will be Bibliotheque, which also smells amazing on my skin. This smells like a niche version of Nautica Voyage with added nasberry note. It becomes a skinscent after an hour. I've been told it smells like a baby, in the best possible way. It's very inoffensive and pleasant to smell, and performs quite well. For those of you who say it doesn't last for you, Boooo Freakin Hoooo..............It lasts for me and ultimately, that is what matters, what it does for ~ME~. It's very inoffensive and pleasant to smell, and performs quite well. Nog geen reviews. Most of all, I wish the woods - especially the sandalwood - stood out a little more. With the crisp white box, and simple bold lettering, the slightly Celtic looking seals on the inner box had me intrigued. I own both MG and now SG so I could smell them hand to hand. Green floral classy masterpiece. Warm cedar in the base. You can really smell the violet. All I can smell is heavy soapy sweet pear. I disagree the negative reviews. It also smells EXACTLY like B&BW Desert Wildflower. To me, this smells just like Michael Kors Michael Kors.

It doesn't evoke Joshua trees, creosote bushes, coyotes, or dusty and windswept trailer parks on the edge of Barstow. Mojave Ghost is one of Byredo's buzziest scents, so I was eager to try it. I just want to smell good and sometimes simple is better...Mojave Ghost is simple and smells great. I love the whole black and white affair! Watered Down soft version. Definitely a feminine scent. Ahh, Mojave Ghost. Just a soft floral. Had I known about Mojave Ghost, I would have considered it over Daisy as Daisy has its own problems. I can barely smell this and don't find anything remarkable about what I do smell. I already reviewed this last year but now that I actually own this fragrance I have more to say. I love how it wears on the skin. A bit sweet, a bit aquatic, and bleh. If you like the soft, creamy & spicy part of Mojave Ghost, then Noa is the better and more affordable option. This is a whole lot of synthetic banana-coconut-orange "nothing fruit for about 7 or 8 minutes. Flowers used in this composition are on the fresh side of spectrum, not headache like many floral heavy scents. Softly spoken. It just proves how individual perfume art.....someone's treasure is another person's flatulent balloon. The release year is unknown. I have to say that I haven’t really fallen in love with any other of them yet, but it doesn’t matter – let me just review a perfume challenge. A true unisex fragrance, both men and women can wear this. I was curious by the name ghost. Sweet, fresh and youthful. Let’s face it, Byredo is expensive and it’s no secret that the performance is poor. Very easily likeable, but not lovable for its lack of character. Regardless, I can't deny it smells pretty good and distinctive. There's no denying it's one of the great names in perfumery, and it's moved a lot of product - much of it in completely blind purchases (yes, including myself). Never came across anything like this before, it is Unique. I think the sillage is in the mystery of this fragrance. Like sunrise in the desert. The sillage is moderate, but the longevity is great .. on me lasts 10+ hours. On my husband, however, this scent radiates a vivid, tonic-like succulence. Like other Byredo scents, there is a certain "translucency" or "space between the notes" - which is sort of ghost-like, if you insist on finding some literal relationship in the name. That's Mojave Ghost! It leans kind of feminine. This can project me to the driest Mojave desert, where I stand in the highest sand dune to catch the strong wind during the twilight! I have three samples from Byredo thus far; I have Black Saffron, Gypsy Water, and Mojave Ghost. Mojave Ghost is remarkably elegant, and hauntingly beautiful. Not worth the price tag and would not repurchase. It leans kind of feminine. I've never seen a sapodilla, let alone smelled one, but there's something familiar about the fruity element of the opening... but when paired with the floral elements, it has a really intriguing feel. At first smell, I thought it smelled just like Daisy by Marc Jacobs. I have so many questions about this scent. I couldn't review this at first. Very sensual, strange and mystic scent with a very good sillage and long lasting. Byredo Mojave Ghost Eau de Parfum, 100 mL DetailsThe Ghost flower is a rare species that dares to blossom above this baked hard ground. Fresh spring water, rather than tap water, so I guess that's a positive. The sapodilla note here is what makes this unique. This is just gorgeous. Mystics is really going on here. And nothing else really. That was an expensive blind buy. Fragrance story : In the xeric wilderness of the Mojave desert, trees and vegetation more ancient than many civilizations defy conditions that prey on human vulnerability. To my nose Mojave Ghost has no freshness whatsoever. And Violet, violet when done right is the scent that Cleopatra used to wear because it is a scent that loads up our receptors for smelling it and our brain can't register it after a while, then suddenly, wham, receptors are unblocked and the Violet hits you like you've never smelled it before. I am so passion by this scent and never encounter any scent as Mojave Ghost. I liked it instantly. I even pulled him to the counter once to smell the tester bottle, and he confirmed that the bottle "smells nothing like how it is on your skin". Right? I gave it 2 hours and eventually couldn't take it anymore. I was expecting something entirely different. To be honest, I can't pick apart and pinpoint all the notes but that doesn't bother me, as a whole it is beautiful and that's all that matters. In November I talked about the Atelier Cologne and Mimosa Indigo (review here) , today the perfume house is Byredo and the scent one of its classics - Mojave Ghost. Not an oriental by my lights. I don't think it says class or intellect nor would it garner compliments in adults as much ass others,but its just plain out good, well balanced, long lasting, and makes you feel happy! Now mind you, this a perfectly pleasant fragrance, just not what I expected. After loving Blanche so much, I got a bunch of samples of Byredo and Mojave Ghost was one of them. I feel like wearing 3 to 4 different fragrances in a few hours. I can barely smell it in. The initial sharp floral-citrus zestiness is not present in MG. This is an an aqua sunset, a golden pear orchard, creamy magnolia blooms, and a musky sandalwood wind that is hauntingly a ghost or whisper of spicy trade-winds from a far off ocean. Mojave Ghost doesn't seem to have this dry down effect, but it loses Daisy's femininity. Top notes are Sapodilla and Ambrette (Musk Mallow); middle notes are Magnolia, Violet and Sandalwood; base notes are Ambergris and Cedar. but I had to say that the dominant note here reminds me strongly of... lifesavers tropical rolls, remember the opaque pale-orange melon lifesaver? That's definitely an accurate description. This was a disappointing bottle, uh I mean sample. I can't quite stop smelling it! Very well blended and high quality, in my opinion. Im surprised by some people say this doesnt last long on their skin. I was expecting some kind of fresh pear opening but all I have is some waxy ripe fruit. This lasts, although I don't get much development on it.
