melon, watermelon, sweet melon, great sillage and there is a lot of it .... I got it as a gift, but I like to trade for something else

I approached it with interested and high hopes. It's a 5 star perfume after all. But it's charm, whatever it is, is wasted on me, as I cannot find it. I tried and I tried, I re-applied my sample many times. Aqcua di Gio with a dash of cocoa powder and orange.

Since Molto Missoni is one of my favorite (now discontinued) fragrances, trying on Missoni Missoni eau de parfum I was hoping for a repeat of Molto. While no where near Molto, I find MM wonderful in it's own right. The first time, I was disappointed but then, a second spritzing revealed something fruity, floral, but also musky, in a good way. Definitely high-end and not something I smell on every other woman I like this so much I've ordered the body lotion. I've got a huge fragrance collection, am VERY selective in what I buy and wear, and am happy to add this to my collection. Thanks to the woman who included the lotion benefits to her review!!

I'm never quite sure what I think of Missoni. It's odd to me. It's interesting in that I would describe it as a chocolate floral. Which initially sounds like it would be really good, but I think for me the execution doesn't really pan out. I like the idea, but not the actual combination here, it's a bit too strange. It also has sort of a slight melon note that wafts in and out and confuses my nose. But, I can see where it might work with someone else's chemistry. If the idea of chocolate floral sounds appealing, then I would say sample it. It is very different, and I don't dislike it, it just confuses me.

I have worn this now a few times and my experience is a bit different than most. First I smell citrus. It is a sharp citrus smell along with something I can not pin-point, I would say aquatic in nature. Then it goes through a creamscicle phase maybe ten minutes. I love orange creamscicles and sweet scents, but I dont want to smell like this. Fortunately it changes, some note, I dont know what, comes into play. It is warm, but sleepy at the same time. I would liken the scent to opening with a hot, lively and sunny beach and the drydown to be dawn...or maybe sunset on the same beach. It is hard to describe. And yet it doesnt strike me as special or unique. I cant describe it well, it confuses me...but it still bores me. I usually prefer darker, sensual scents. I am NOT a citrus girl so maybe im not the best reviewer for this. I will say to any citrus lover out there that this is, to me, a sleepy and strange citrus. Not clean and invigorating. Either way, no sale.

Missoni, my compliments. Missoni is multifaceted floral fruity that is also woodsy and nutty, even spicy in some whiffs. Sophisticated to the hilt! A natural tossled beauty with intelligence and a wholesome sense of humor. Its January and I am going to wear this for a season and go from there but; Missoni may be able to go year-round. Its true, I do favor Maurice Roucel's perfumes in general but this one is his perfect showcase. Reflective of Missioni fabrics - artistic weaves of color and texture. Very chic.

I don't agree that this is a fragrance for sandalwood lovers, as I have a terribly low tolerance for sandalwood and this one is very appealing to me. First on, I get a strong chocolate and hazelnuts note, very strong, with a sort of dirty dust edge, like it's gone bad, and a touch of citrus underneath that gives it an aquatic feeling. This dries rapidly to a well-blended combination of that lovely chocolate/hazelnuts note with the citrus notes being very clear and crisp. It reminds me somehow of Byblos in the crisp, clear citrus. Very nice, very different. I don't get most of the other notes at any time, but it's definitely a golden gem of a perfume worth trying.

Another perfume that I searched HI and LO for. When it first came out it was only carried at higher end department stores but I found it and love it to pieces. A very rich and smoky fragrance that really suits me. If you like sandlewoods, vanillas, musks, and the like, you just may like this one.

This is one of the most unusual floral fragrances I have tried. The opening smells like daisies and dandelions, which is weird because they don't really smell that much in reality. Somehow, they managed to capture that fleeting smell and make it quite intense here. Then, it gets sweet but not unbearably so. The drydown is a strong musk. I can't really compare it to anything out there so it's fairly unique which may be a big plus nowadays.

Well, I suppose I am in the minority here. I adore this scent! It's obviously a love/hate scent even more so than Angel which alot of people can stand-in moderation. I happen to only gravitate towards scents that are different and out of the ordinary. I wouldn't be caught dead in something like D&G light blue where everyone knows what you're wearing. Missoni is definately offbeat and quirky, and requires a curtian "grace" to pull off. I love those kind of scents. Now onto the fragrance.
Missoni is very hard to describe. It is as decribed on Sephora, however, thinking about the notes is one thing and actually smelling them is another. When I purchased my samples off Ebay I really didn't know what to expect. Once I sprayed it on I was instantly hooked. It starts off with a sweet fruity note, I almost smell melon and orange at the same time with a hint of chocolate, then 5 mins later the lush florals come in and heat up the scent. I really do feel like I'm basking in the sun at some Italian resort...The drydown I find is ambery and warm and soft with a hint of the fruits florals and that delicious chocolate. I do get a slight similarity to Angel or even my HG Lolita Lempicka in the drydown. It only lasts about 3-4 hours on me but that's ok because I like my fragrances to be light and soft. I think 2 sprays is perfect and it's perfect for the warmer weather as it needs the heat to work it's magic :). I have only had my sample for the past couple weeks and everyone that has smelled it on me ie: husband, Mom, Dad and brother have said it smells amazing ( they would have no trouble telling me if it was awful!) I think it all comes down to chemistry with this masterpiece. I don't understand the reviewers that say it smells like rotting tuna with sugar sprinkled on top!? If it works for you go with it and rock it ladies! I can't get enough of this! But definately try before you buy, you'll find yourself intruiged...

I have both the perfume and the lotion, and far prefer the lotion. I also have a small jar of the body cream which came in a Neiman;s gift bag.
The perfum is a bit much (sweet/heavy/cloud-bomb with a lot going on), HOWEVER, the lotion and the cream both are just what i was hoping for; Moisturizing, with a wonderful 'dry=down- scent that people comment positively on. I'd tag it as a cross between a light gourmand and a floral.I'm always looking to save time in the morning, so a moisturizing lotion or cream which leave me smelling wonderful all day does the trick!

I remember the very first time I ever smelled this, on a scent strip in Vogue magazine. I was flipping through it frantically trying to find the source that was making the magazine smell so good. This has got to be the most interesting, warm smelling concoction of notes I've ever worn. I'm not usually one to wear fruity scents and this is undeniably fruity. However the gourmet chocolate note gives this a richness that I love, and I'm actually a freak of nature that hates the taste of chocolate. The fact that that is my favorite note here keeps me intrigued. This gets lots of compliments which is the reason I invested in a bottle. Ironically, every compliment was exactly the same, " You smell so Good! " I truly, truly, advise everyone to try this on your skin before making any hasty decisions. This works well on me because it's very compatible with my chemistry. On someone else this could smell like quite simply, a mess. It's not cheap either, making the necessity to try it first all the more important.

Gorgeous. Unique. Intriguing. Modern. Addictive. Sensual. Undeniably Sexy. Though the seductive notes are familiar, they meld together like a work of art. This makes them difficult to pinpoint and isolate and adds credibilty to this Missoni design. If I were pricing this fragrance, I would set the price much higher. It is that exquisite.

There is a whole lot going on here. I pick up on a melon smell at first, and I don't care for melon smells. Then it gets a bit earthier, and the melon starts to smell rotten to me. Very unpleasant fragrance. I can appreciate the composition, but it makes me ill after a short time.

Tried it as a sample - and felt.. nothing. It is not offensive, it is not pleasant. I feel it just does not smell like much of anything. My husband, however, accidentally mixed it up with his little Dolce/Gabbana sample and sprayed it on - and I loved it on him. Go figure

The poor rating is for the way my chemistry interacted with Missoni; if it worked, I suppose I could die for this perfume. I love Missoni's knitwear and gourmand fragrances, so I could not wait to get my hands on this one. But alas, no chocolate, no orange, no nuts; just one huge ashtray. Crestfallen, and unwilling to accept reality, I come home, digest my experience and go back to the shop the next day. And what do I get this time? Dirt! I am flabbergasted. Sisters who can get the desired effect, please enjoy it for me, too.

I got a sample of this and it really strikes me. Most of the time when I smell new fragrances I have the same reaction - yuck. This one is really interesting. Fruity and chocolaty and dries down nicely.

Well, I must be a minority here, because everyone who says this is offensive is probably into some floraly type smell that I might find offensive. That is the only answer I can come up with. This smells like the richest, most decadent things I can think of. It only gets better on me, and I will admit that the initial spray is a bit strong, but what happens afterwards is so warm and inviting, I can imagine being wrapped up in the softest warmest blanket in front of a fire and nibbling chocolate cake. I get the hint of orange and chocolate, but I also smell a bit of rose and spice. I normally gag at the scent of rose, but somehow, this works. I am really shocked at people's strong opinions on this one. I actually have people ask what smells so good all the time and then ask what I am wearing. Maybe it is just the mixture and will not work for some chemistry, but if you hate flowery floraly grandmotherly scents, then this one might be for you, as I would call it the antithesis of old or refined. More sultry and wild.

It was Turin & Sanchez in their "Perfumes: The Guide" who dubbed this concoction a masterpiece. I find many of their reviews helpful, and even when I don't, I can generally see where their appreciation comes from. But five stars for this one? Utterly mind-boggling. Knowing that it should be a chocolate scent makes some sense of this one, but as a smell, it simply doesn't work. Its florals, or something, clash with chocolate, and create a dry-sweet-jarring combination. Dog food, sugared tuna? Yes. When it dries down, it gets a little better but I haven't decided if it is because the scent changes, or only because it fades, as I haven't had the stomach to wear this one for a full day. Turin & Sanchez do mostly praise its structure but what's the point of having an ingenious time evolution of the scent if you can't stand its smell? Two stars because it is at least interesting, and memorable, even if in a disastrous sort of way.

I had to go make a special trip to smell this at the department store just for kicks because of all the bad reviews. I read in the Allure magazine that this fragrance was given 5 stars by some big wig perfumer/reviewer. What a contridiction with all the bad reviews here but getting a 5 star rating by a professional.
All I have to say is YUCK, YUCK and triple YUCK. This smelled like the dirt in my aunts yard where her dogs run. Something very rotten and off. However...I have not been able to stop smelling it! It smells horrible to me, but I keep taking a whiff of it and I don't know why! It is like there is some sort of pheromone in it that has me wanting more even though it smells like dirty armpit. That is truly what it smells like...like a person has body ordor and they have put some powder on to cover it up but it isn't really doing the job. It comes out a mix of body odor and powder.
When I took the first whiff at the store, I said out loud "disturbing". And that is exactly what this fragrance is---disturbing.
