Yes, it's special but....

I recently received a nearly full bottle of coromandel from my mother. I really do love this one. It's very rich, deep, and dark. Perfectly suited for a cold night. It's beautiful and unlike any other perfume I wear. I gravitate towards the easy-to-wear perfumes. Most often I wear sweet, fresh, floral, or fruity scents. Coromandel is different. Coromandel smells special and refined.

As much as I love Coromandel, it is nearly unwearable to me. It is by far the strongest perfume I own and it packs a wallop. It makes my Coco Noir seem like a body spray. Coromandel is also very distinctive.

A word of caution, I detect a middle note reminiscent of musty/mildew. It's fleeting and faint. The dry down is amazing. It is nothing short of beautiful on wool sweaters and cashmere scarves.

I've taken to wearing this behind my knees or ankles. If you are sensitive or have allergies, I'd tread lightly with this one.

I imagine that this will also smell wonderful on a man.
