I only wish the bottle were larger! I guess I'll have to order a larger size next time. The shipping was as much as the perfume in this sample size package. I fulfilled my wish to smell what Mary put on Jesus's feet. It is delightful. I'm saving up for a full sized bottle now!

Some reviewers call this scent "rank," "old," and "not what expected." Although I understand those opinions, we must remember that the oily perfume used in antiquity was nothing like today's perfumes that are named after people like Brittney Spears, Paris Hilton, the Olsen twins, and Beyonce. I would expect Spikenard to smell rank and old. That is the charm of it. I don't think Mary anointed the feet of Jesus with a light scent of lilacs and roses. True, spikenard does smell old and rank, so I do not wear it outside my home. Instead, I rub a few drops on my hands when I pray and study my Bible, and it enhances my experience of Scripture reading.

The front cover of the item says it is spikenard, but its ingredients are myrrh and cinnamon.

Spikenard is a wonderful rich and spicy fragrance. It wears well and lasts long. I have had many positive comments on this fragrance where ever I go. I went on a trip to India and even had many good comments from people there. Also, it is hard to find good Spikenard cologne or perfume. I am happy with both price and quality of this fragrance. Will be ordering again! Thanks.
