Wasn't expecting much... Love it!
I wasn't expecting much from Perry Ellis's "M", but was pleasantly surprised. This fragrance can be found on the market for a great price. It's your typical sweet scent - almost cola vibe. I can't really smell the Star Anise (would have liked to). It is beautiful with the vanilla, tonka bean, cinnamon and cashmere wood. This reminds me of Frank Olivier's Red and a few others out in the marketplace, and that's okay. I would definitely wear this fragrance in the fall and winter and will spray liberally. The only thing is this doesn't project as much as I would like, but still reasonable for the price point. I give this a 7 / 10 and is a great pick-up. I recommend this fragrance if you like sweet and spicy.

An alluring capital m
[short review]
Sometimes I buy perfumes just because I am curious about them, after reading a review, or hearing a well stated opinion.
When that happens and the perfume is inexpensive (like "m"), I just buy the flask. Porsuing a sample or a decant may be tiresome and sometimes the final expense is bigger that the cost of "the real thing".
Many times, when a blind buy of an inexpensive perfume happens, I just end up with another unused scent in my closet.
"m" is really inexpensive, hard or impossible to find in my country and has been extensively recommended by a Youtube reviewer that I don't really care or trust. So... I just blind ordered it a couple of years ago!
"m" turned out to be a gem and I still really like it a lot.

It has a strong vibe of Allure Homme, although I don't consider it a clone, with an all-around type of spiciness and sweetness that makes it particularly eclectic and versatile, besides having a scent that I particulary like. On top of it, the flask is really handy to carry in one's pocket.
It could be another very aromatic gourmand with cinnamon, vanilla, tonka and star anise, but the seasoning with fir and cashmere wood proved to be very effective.
All the people around me like it and it turned out to be an unexpected compliment getter. The performance isn't great, but not too bad either.

Happy whiffs!

So yummy.
It's been a while since I had Allure Homme. And I have to admit, back then it didn't really knock me out of my shoes.
But this "M" here is the absolute hammer. The relationship to Allure can definitely not be denied. But it smells even better to me. Softer, more pleasant, tastier etc.....
Not to mention the ridiculous price you pay for it. Total class.
And I was very reluctant at first whether I should treat myself to this blind purchase. Thank God I did. It remains in the collection and will be bought again if necessary.

one of the few bad recommendations from Jeremy
Normally I agree with almost all of Jeremy's recommendations I have discovered through him this passion and found many great scents. But I don't understand that recommendation. Smells for me if I had to describe it like rotten, synthetic crème brûlée. I love winter scents, but this one doesn't work. I had to do the dishes.

Yes, smells like...............but better in it's own way
Yes, very much like Allure Homme by the great house of Chanel.

Though I do prefer this much more so, why?
First off.....pricepoint, so much cheaper!

Second-darker, in my opinion, Allure has white flower notes like Jasmine, Gardenia and such along with peach making it not only softer but powdery.

Third: This is more masculine, Allure's white flower, peach and coconut notes give it a feminine leaning.

Fourth; long lasting and great projection.
As I write this it is the middle of winter here in the northern hemisphere and such a great time of year for Perry Ellis' M.

Sweet and dry - Good choice for fall and winter
I do not get much cinnamon from this, but something akin to a fresh tobacco accord. Of course, cinnamon is listed as a note and tobacco is not; so, take my words with a grain of salt.
As far as I can tell, people who like CK One Shock for Men might find this a good choice for fall and winter. It might be a little too sweet and dry for summer. I do not suggest that CK Shock and PE m smell alike, (or even close), but at least for me, they fill similar spots in the rotation. PE m is sweeter, and less tobacco-ey than Shock, and Shock seems to project and last somewhat better than PE m. At any rate, a pretty good choice at current prices (as of December 2015) for people who do not have anything against any of the listed notes.

This fragrance is really alluring.
I am glad it does not smell too much like Chanel's Allure. It's a bit sweeter and more casual.

Cinnamon, vanilla, tonka bean and musk are the outstanding notes. Really musky. Apply 2 hours before sexy time. Great success.
