Sweet sweet sweet

No doubt it is.

Initial notes are complex, still, there are notes quite difficult to identify, I would describe them as sweet fruits with some gourmand notes (I am thinking of raspberries with "caramel liquid" - this noun in French), some musks of the balmy, soft kind, far from animalic.

The development carries on along the same complexity, limited by the composition's longevity - twenty to thirty minutes from application it settles down to what it seems persistent light sweet cotton candy accords - if cotton candy smells tangy to the nose, be assure I can get the same feeling while trying to describe the composition.

Common sense tells me that if the wearer is not happy with M's longevity, he or she can apply more. The idea seems far from good: If I were the wearer doing that I would feel like having spread real cotton candy on my chest.

As a matter of fact, I can imagine a 30 year old woman smelling M on her. I think it would fit her.

Interesting sweet smell, not something worth having, IMHO.

BTW, I got a light headache after sniffing this.

For Him Bleu Noir (Eau de Toilette) Fast forward trip to soapy bliss
Pun intended. It does have the resemblances mentioned ad nauseam, however, as a reference. A very difficult concept to explain - the notes are analogous but the development is not, the general feeling is different: creamier, balsamic,...
