Reviews of Queen by Queen Latifah

There are 25 reviews of Queen by Queen Latifah.

Spicy oriental. Balsamic, warm, woody, aromatic, boozy, musky-animalic - citrus top notes are buried. It is a pretty good release, for a celebrity scent. Discontinued - I'll savor this to the last drop.

Can be overpowering if over-sprayed. Lasts quite awhile.

By all the warm balsamic notes & spice in the composition I should love this. It's not bad, and it's a tremendous bargain scent but on my skin it just emits a coldness, even a little waxiness of a funeral bouquet, that makes me want to skip over it's cute little bottle when choosing my scent.

I bought Queen "blind", because of the reviews here at Basenotes. The price is unbelievably low for the quality. I've also ordered several bottles to give as gifts; so far the recipients have been pleased.

Once it has dried down, I smell vanilla, tonka, sandalwood and booze. It is a warm, comforting scent, and is long-lasting. Sillage is moderate.

I usually don't review women's fragrances, but this one is fairly simple, and familiar to me. I used to own a bottle of Vanille Patchouli by Molinard, and they smell almost identical.

Here In Queen, I get an equal blend of vanilla, and patchouli. It's very well paired, it smells even a bit natural, more so the patchouli than the vanilla. This is definitley a unisex fragrance. This has much less projection than Vanille Patchouli which I like too, because with how sweet it is, I don't wanna project so much, as it can become cloying.

I can't say that I pick up on any notes other than vanilla, patchouli for the most part. Hours later I smell more tonka than vanilla. I also began picking up on tonka more toward the beginning. Not that obnoxiously sweet tonka either, which is a plus for me. I don't get any of the florals. Maybe a little musk and sandalwood in the base.

I've seen this for as cheap as 10 bucks a bottle, for a bigger bottle. A great buy in my view, and a pretty nice bottle too.

Wearing this today in 25* weather.....awesome winter frag that should be marketed as unisex IMO. Slight boozy/incense, sweet vanilla and tonka BOMB...with a light sandalwood and patchouli drydown.(not over powering gross patchouli either, but blended wonderfully as a background note here)

If your a fan of Serge Luten's "style" of gourmands, you gotta give this uber cheapie a try! Longevity and projection are stellar. How this can be had for under $10 for a 100ml, I have no idea?! Straight up CRIMINAL!!!;)

PS-the opening might be a little off-putting, but stick it out because the drydown is totally worth it!

Surprisingly I actually like this on occasion. It is very sweet for my normal taste, but as a diversion from the dryer scents I prefer, and for the ridiculous low price, it is a change of pace. I love all of the base scents but could do with less vanilla. I don't smell any of the florals at all just the sweet spicy incense.
