Too bad that Max Mara doesn't exist anymore...
Hello
i was allowed to get to know the fragrance by chance during a perfumery tour shortly after its release and was immediately blown away: unobtrusive and fresh, just as I would like it to be in summer. And so very different from anything I've ever known. For years he was allowed to accompany me from May to September - during these months he was my favourite invisible accessory! I still have two flacons, have stocked up on them and keep them like the apple of my eye. No other summer scent could convince me so far, unfortunately. I got a lot of compliments for the fragrance, it is (still) my trademark in summer and I'm already crying when I think of the last spray that will come out of the bottle...

clean fresh sunny ginger citrus
MMMM This is so jummy. I wasent so shure if i even wanted to try this . But got it in a blind swapp:) Thank Heaven for that;) This is so fresh , citrus,ginger fizzy, sligthly spicy. This reminds me a bit off Hermes Apres la Mousoon,Not very close , but there is a similarity . I like the whit lily and magnolia that put in some warmth and also brightness to this Gem. It is sweet , but not cloying sweet . ealy lovely, if you like a different take on a citus perfume try this . lovely . thanks smellMe for swapping this to me :)

Update : I just got a coment from my youngest daughter on this one . she sayed , mm you smells just like lilac. And i took a closer sniff on my arm and there it was . I knew there was somthing that i could not put my finger one and there it was. It just like the real Lilac.. not like lilac perfume that often get a harsh feal to it aswell. But like Honey dripping sweet fresh lilac in early summer times . so so lovely.. I realy enjoy this scent
only thing i wish it was stronger and longer lasting

Be careful with this fragrance if you have allergies like I do. It really set them off. Runny nose, sneezing and a screetching headache. This one is a no go for me. Cloying to the max!

So much for expectations...
For some unbeknownst reason, testing Max Mara was something I had been looking forward to. I didn't know much about it, I barely know the brand and to be honest, nothing about the notes appealed to me, yet I felt a good testing of this fragrance was essential.

When it came down to it, Max Mara was pleasant but nothing overly exciting. It's a simplistic spicy floral with hints of sparkling citrus throughout. I had an image of elegance in my mind prior to testing Max Mara, and while it could indeed be worn formally, it's also rather casual and basic in its approach.

The heart was unfortunately quite nauseating for me as it took on an odd bitterness, which only smelt cheap and plasticky to my nose. The floral notes didn't shine like I thought they would, instead they were quite loud and brash. I was a little shocked that Max Mara could smell so synthetic and strange. I still haven't managed to come to terms with its disappointing composition.

Thankfully the drydown is really pretty. An almost gourmand-like blend of sugar and orchid, a blend that also worked well in Britney Spears Fantasy. For Max Mara to end with a somewhat syrupy sweet drydown didn't seem so befitting with its mature and spicy floral opening.

I found the sillage to be moderate and the lasting power rather commendable, however I'm not ready to recommend this fragrance to anyone anytime soon. Max Mara's Le Parfum, despite its basic and clean soapy accords, is Max Mara's best fragrance so far, at least in my opinion.
