A Vanilla and Tonka bean Bomb
SOTD (Scent of the Day): Mandarina Duck Black EDT: As of 02/11/19

A good sweet and citrus scent, to me is a generic in a good in way, vanilla and tonka bean are my favorite notes. It's good decent fragrance nothing mind blowing, again the vanilla, tonka bean, and tangerine to my nose are the major player from beginning to end, with the bergamot sneaking in and I detect as well the floral notes, sandalwood, cedar and pepper in the back ground. Notes are pretty well blended. It's suited for fall/winter seasons, and is a must have.

Mandarina Duck's Pure Dud...
Mandarina Duck Pure Black starts off as a Memoire d'Homme Ricci clone... This is a very bad thing, as that scent was one of my biggest mistakes when I blind bought it many years ago. Things do develop differently with Pure Black, specifically PB has black pepper and tobacco notes that develop after the horrible opening. To be fair, this part of the scent is more appealing, but the ugly top notes still remain throughout, and I can't help but continuously think about the loathsome Memoire d'Homme by Ricci. I like PB better than that scent, but that is not saying much. Longevity with Pure Black is mercifully brief. My advice is to steer well clear of this two star out of 5 rated "pure dud".

Vanilla & Tonka on top of citrus and woods. It's a pleasant sweet and semi black fragrance. It lacks a bit of perfomance but I like it!
