An unisex subtle fragrance with a Thierry Mugler DNA type
This is a very nice Eau de Toilete, although I qualify it as quite subtle.
It seems to have an EDC concentration, although it says EDT on the label. Even the bottle size - 200 ml in a Spongebob square shape - is more common in EDCs rather than in EDT's.
I love the scent. It's a very pleasant Oriental fragrance. It's not intrusive. Its scent together with its subtlilness will get you some compliments for sure.
It opens with a pleasant semi-sweet coffee note that will be present till the beginning of the drydown.
In the heart notes we detect strong notes of rich lingering sandalwood, blended with balsamic elemi resin (amyris wood) that will last till the evolution final, and will persist during the drydown, although as a fainter accord, and outshined by the semi-earthy strong patchouli that will make itself dominant in the bottom phase.

A couple of comments:
- I consider the performance as under average: Less than 4~5 hours longevity with 3 sprays; One arm lenght sillage at the most; It projects for 1~1.5 hours.
- Nice inexpensive price - 200ml bottle - €13.50 in Showroomprivé. The big 200 ml bottle is so inexpensive that you may spray the juice freely at your will. This way you will get an acceptable performance with this very alluring fragrance. The amount of compliments is far superior from what you may expect with such an inexpensive fragrance.
- Damn fantastic notes: Top notes - roasted heavy scented coffee; Middle notes - sandalwood and elemi resin (amyris wood); Base notes - earthy patchouli. During the evolution of the top and middle notes, I also detect an herbaceous green and dry faint note similar to vetiver.
- You need at least 6~8 sprays on skin to add 50% more performance: but if you want to take advantage of the fragrance subtleness just do the usual 2~3 sprays. You can always respray a couple of hours later. You should also spray twice on your clothes to help the performance to ramp up.
- Even if this fragrance is advised for men, I really do think it is an unisex scent. The perfume DNA is similar to a mixture of three Thierry Mugler perfumes, but for a fraction of their individual cost. It really opens like A*Men Pure Coffee and halfway its evolution becomes similar to a combo of Angel and A*Men till the end of the drydown.
- Although it suggest you vibes of the three above mentioned fragrances, in reality it is a very unique fragrance. I don't know any other fragrance with this magnificent blending of those Mugler juices and, at your own choice, decide for the subtle behaviour with fewer sprays or adding some stamina with more sprays. Nevertheless it never reaches neither the Thierry Mugler fragrances projection, sillage and longevity, nor the price per application.
Do not consider Bois & Pluie as a Mugler clone either due to its different blending evolution or because it causes different reaction both in yourself and in the people around you. Overall this fragrance is just a bit sweet. It's not as gourmand as the mentioned Mugler perfumes. Thierry Mugler scents are all about screaming "I AM HERE!", while the Pascal Morabito cologne just whispers "would you mind?".

My overall rating: 8.0/10.0
Note: If Pascal Morabito would double the performance to a true EDT or EDP concentration, I would rate it 9.0/10.0
