I have loved Cinnabar ever since the first day our paths crossed back in 1980. I thought I met heaven on earth and I was right. Cinnabar is a beautiful and strong fragrance. A little goes a very long way. Because of this, I only wear it in the fall and winter and when I apply it, I spray it up in the air and then step under it to catch the mist. The scent is incredible and unique. I have never experienced anything else even close to this scent. I have gotten so many compliments on this fragrance. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring back the dusting powder, soap, and body lotion! They were all so amazing!!!
I have been wearing Cinnabar for over 30 years, since high school. It was often the only fragrance I owned - no need for anything else. I've never worn anything that people complimented more. Even others that wore Cinnabar said it smelled better on me. I recently needed to restock. I wasn't thrilled with the new bottle design, and was heartbroken to discover it didn't smell the same either. It's flatter and less spicy. There is a slight, weird, sour, citrusy scent I never noticed before. It doesn't last like it used to. The scent gets weirder as it wears. Not only does it not smell like Cinnabar, it doesn't smell good on me at all. Even my husband and son are telling me I don't smell like me. Please, please bring it back.

I was disappointed with this new Cinnabar fragrance, I wore this back in the 80's and I loved it, this doesn't come close at all.

Probably a change in my chemistry!

Like many, I've worn Cinnabar for 20+ years. As a single mom I mostly saved it for special occasions. My daughter told me that whenever she smelled Cinnabar it made her feel happy, like somethin magical was going to happen. I wanted to buy her her own bottle but it's not the same! I still have an old bottle and I sprayed it on one wrist and the new bottle on the other wrist. There's no way they are the same formula. What I was hoping to pass on to my adult daughter to wear and make happy memories with is not going to happen now. I hope you go back to the original formula.

I was expecting a spicy, warm oriental scent. What I got is a headache inducing nausea spray. It's odd because it almost smells good, but there is a note that I can't really identify but it smells like cheap musk mixed with spice. Just not the Estée Lauder quality I've come to expect. Very disappointed. I've read many of the reviews and unfortunately I don't know what the original scent smelled like to compare.This isn't worth the price, you could get a cheap drugstore musk and it'd be a dupe.

This is a outstanding fragrance and I get compliments every time I wear it.
Baba Mouse from El Dorado
This is one of my all-time favorite fragrances. It is warm and a little spicey, but not heavy. Just a small spritz reminds me of being in Europe at a small cafe or an evening in the Western United States on the beach with a campfire. There is a touch of flora, like an evening stroll through an oriental garden.

Was excited to find this scent was still available. Wore it years ago. I normally wore this in the winter because it is heavier and seemed to go with wool and sweaters but just used it this past week and I like it all over again

I have always loved Cinnabar. It reminds me of being in a market place in Singapore.
When I smell it I want to close my eyes and breath it in.
Adrianna from AL
I received this as a gift and it smells exactly like Big Red gum. It's pretty intense and is possible to give a headache but I like it a lot. It wears pretty well on the skin but personally I think it works better on back of the knees pulse points than wrists and neck since it's quite strong

Many years ago Cinnabar was my favorite perfume. After being away from it for so long, I remember now how much I love it. The spicy, sensual fragrance is magnificent!
Lissy65 from Saint Pauls, North Carolina
I'm now 55 & have worn this ever since i was 14 yrs old when i used to swipe it from my older sister. Sure i wear other perfumes too but this has always been & will always be my signature scent. I could smell it 24/7 & would never get tired of it.

Love this perfume. It's very warm & inviting. Reminds me of what my mother used to wear. Youth Dew. Fond memories of my mother when I wear this.
Glo from Picayune Ms
As a young woman I would try new fragrances. That was til I found Youth Dew and Cinnabar. I was in my forties. I would use Youth Dew during the day and Cinnabar at night. The more mature I got I preferred Cinnabar all day. I put it on every day whether I'm going somewhere or not. I out it on for me. I love it. I think it is the same fragrance. I do not think it has changed. I do think some women's sense of smell changes over the years. It lasts all day. I get compliments when I'm shopping. I love that. Now I'm 68. I still feel beautiful when I put it on. My only regret is that they don't make the fragrant body cream or lotion any more. I miss that so.
Shelly from Des Moines, IA
I agree with everyone who says it's not the same formula from 20+ years ago. It is definitely not as strong or as long lasting. I used spray some on at 6 AM and I could still smell it on me by 8 PM. This version is diluted and you have to reapply a couple times a day, but the scent smells the same.
Bett from Bagdad,FL
Cinnabar has always been my favorite perfume. I know it's an older perfume, and every time I go on the side, I fear that they've discontinued it. I hope they never do, I don't know what I'll do. It's the only perfume I ever wear. I've tried to find other perfumes that I like but nothing compares to it. Estee Lauder, never stop making this perfume.
Kat from Jacksonville FL
I used Cinnabar years ago. I loved it but started opting for lighter scents. It's time for new perfume and decided to try it again. Like some have said it has changed slightly but I think it's good. It's a bit lighter but it can afford to be.
Macmom from Fruitland, Idaho
If you like a spicy fragrance, this is the one for you! I love it and I would say it is unisex. A little goes a long way, so it does seem to last a long time.
MorganV from Austin, TX
I first bought this perfume when I was in secondary school. I have not worn it until recently. It is a very unusual scent and great for fall and winter. I wear a lot of suede, rich chocolate browns, sweaters in warm colors for fall and winter. This perfume seems to fit with my clothes and overall look. I love it.
Siouxzee from Tampa Bay Florida
I hadn't purchased this scent in sometime and read a few reviews that "it wasn't the same". So happy I decided I needed to try it again. I love love love Cinnabar, oh how I missed you. It's so warm ,spicy and cheerful. If you are a spicy fragrance person you really need to get this wonderful scent.
Alicia from Weston FL
I've been using Cinnabar for YEARS, and ever since it was redesigned (new bottle), it has never been the same! Before, every time I would wear it I could smell it on myself and men and women complimented me on this fragrance. I loved this fragrance because it was so exotic.
I would never buy it again and now I'm looking into switching to a Chanel fragrance.
Care from Ipava Illinois
Was so excited to find this , now being an empty nester , could buy my old favorite ! So disappointed when it came , not the same or even close .
Wish it was the same ! So very sad !
Shaz from phila pa
For some strange reason Estee decided to lighten the scent. It smells nothing like the original cinnabar. Please bring back the original scent! I bought this thinking it was the original scent only to be disappointed with the change they made. What a waste.
KathyM from New Jersey
I love this fragrance, Cinnabar, but unfortunately mine was finished. With covid19 restrictions, I couldn't go to my regular store to purchase. I figured that buying from the source would ensure I was receiving the true fragrance. Although, I read some of the reviews that the fragrance was changed, I thought they must be wrong. They weren't!!! What have you done? The scent is barely discernible after first spraying it. No richness at all. Obviously, there is no lasting quality. I am beyond disappointed. I will never by another Estée Lauder product again. The product is different. Someone at your company needs to dig out an older version and compare it to the current one you're selling. If it's not the recipe that's changed, then check your production of it. Please!!!

I have a couple of bottles of the older formulation. This new one is lacking.
However, I still wear it.
Used to be the best scent I'm the market from Greensboro NC
Cinnabar had been my favorite "go to" fragrance x years. The last bottle I purchased I assumed was a fluke. Nothing like the original I'd worn for many decades. Took it back to the store at the mall along with my bottle. Salesperson told me there'd been no formulation change. I invited her to compare. Several other customers did the comparison sniff test as well. Everyone could smell the difference and everyone (except the saleswoman) felt there was a major and "not for the better" alteration to the formula of this scent. I'd love to hear a response from customer service, but I'd far rather be provided with a means for ordering my beloved original Cinnabar again. It's absence from my life is a very sad and very missed item. Thank you for your attention to my concerns. Much appreciation for your investigation and reply to my post about my concerns. Thank you.
