I've had this multiple times and it is a very nice scent, but its not my personal favourite. It smells VERY Floral and it doesn't dry down any different. Whereas I prefer more vanilla, fruity and floral scents all mixed together.
This has awesome sillage and lasting power, I know this because I would always receive compliments when wearing it. Sometimes it would even be too strong for me even to handle and I would get migraines.
The bottle is also gorgeous, purple with a butterfly lid. All in all, a very nice feminine floral scent. It's also very affordable and there's usually some good discounts on it.

Lovely scent, flowery with an airy, fluffy marshmallow soft sweetness. And of course a sexy smokey incense in the drydown.
Very feminine and girly.
Pretty unique and original for a celeb perfume <3
poor sillage tho ;(

This is a lovely smelling perfume! For me, the lasting power is absolutely horrible. I spray it and it lasts about a minute, then it sits VERY close to the skin, like, if you held your wrist to your nose, you could only JUST smell it. Very bad :/

Very respectable and fresh take on a gourmand-floral scent, and I really don't find this generic-smelling AT all, although for some reason it does remind me of other amber-white-florals like Alien.
Notes include: sea breeze, marshmallow, tiare flower, gardenia, amber, patchouli, Morrocan incense. The sea isn't so much salt as it is a soft ozonic freshness, and that disappears quickly. I personally find the marshmallow and fleshy tiare quite prominent, and these 2 notes stay throughout the scent's life on my skin.
I think it's misleading for people to say this is a vanilla scent because it's not. There's a warmth and sweetness from the amber and marshmallow, but it's NOT vanilla.
I also dislike heavy incense and patchouli, but surprisingly these notes are very soft here. As it dries down, soft wisps of these notes turn M into a plump, powdery, minty marshmallow.
Girly, but smart!

I have the 100ml EDP. I've had it for 2 years now. I spray it 2-3 times a week in the morning once or twice and there's still more than half left. There's only a quarter gone. Defiantly worth getting the largest size if you love the scent. It lasts ages and is well worth it :)

I've tried to wear it several times, after a friend bought this for me a couple years ago. And, I must say, I'm not very picky about trying scents, and I don't have a hugely sensitive nose by any means. Still, and I think, this is quite telling, I find it overly warm and sweet, and the combination is kinda nauseating. I just can't get into this one at all, which is sad, because the bottle is, admittedly, cute!

Omg this Is by far my favoritest smell!!!!!!! Its sooo sexy and warm

This is the sexiest scent to me. It reminds me of summer and the beach and toasting marshmallows. Why I find that sexy I don't know lol but I def do. Its a nice warm toasty vanilla-y exotic beachy scent. It's dark yet sweet. I think it's quite unique actually. I get so many compliments when wearing it, it just suits me so nicely. Love the bottle too.

Last winter I did go through a faze in which I was fond of this and found it to be a sort of warm, rich scent. Now to be quite blunt it makes me feel nauseous. It's a little overbearing and seems easy to overdose on as I have noticed many people wearing it, I recognize it right away even if they are sitting across the room. The bottle itself is pretty but I found the lid a little bit tacky, and not very delicate. The lasting power is better in comparison to other sweet celebrity fragrances, but I still find it too heavy. Would not repurchase.

It's not the best. It's just really not my style. It's too strong and overwhelming for me. I only used it about twice and it's been sitting there. It gives my a headache and I think my mother would like it better than me.

I liked this for the pretty purple bottle with the butterfly shaped lid it possesses notes of Moroccan incense,soft warm marshmallows vanilla and some floral notes thrown in on me this. Sigh yet another gourmand flop smells like burnt marshmallows carbon monoxide and rancid pesticide that had been sitting in a shelf way over its expirey date. Yup I kid you not Now I love the smell of vanilla and sweet things like marshmallows but I don't feel clean wearing this scent its way to cloying and I feel dirty and I don't mean in a raunchy way it does however make a good toilet spray this perfume is yucky booo!

I love this. It's the deepest scent I've ever owned and really loved. I don't think it smells like candy at all. The marshmallow and incense is what I smell and is what seems to linger around when I wear it. It lasts all day on me also. It makes me think of dark hot summer nights and toasted marshmallows. Love the bottle also. The purple butterfly shape is my all time favorite perfume bottle design.

OVER-HYPED & OVER-PRICED
M opens like sweet & sugary rice straight away. I so wanted to experience that sea water. Sadly, nada - no salt water taffy for me, just sugary rice. However, as a sugary scent, M is more well-rounded than many others that I've tried recently. I think it's the patch ... and the mystery rice.
Unfortunately, M is not long lasting & has no projection. I'm at hour 3 after 6-8 sprays. My DH can only catch a whiff by nuzzling my neck, which he says smells like candy. The only thing more spent than M on me is my sample vial of EDP, which is now empty.
M is certainly pretty enough, and I can see how it has appeal. Yet to me, M is no different than any other celeb sugary scent du jour. With Love, Halle, Fantasy, Fancy, etc. -- Pick one of these, they last longer.

I bought this a few years ago and rarely wear it. Wearing it today on a warm autumn day and really enjoying this one. Yes, marshmellow is the predominant scent with this one. If you are looking for a gourmand (ie. sweet, non-floral) but don't want chocolate or caramel (Angel, Fancy), try this one. The bottle is also a stand-out. This was Mariah's first and probably should have been her last.

I got this as a complimentary sample from someone selling me their Nina Ricci Nina fragrance. I expected it to smell like one of those rich old lady perfumes and got quite a surprise! First putting it on, it was all harsh chemicals and alcohol- my sister remarked that it smells like a hospital...
After a couple of hours, you get the heavenly smelling drydown- all creamy marshmallows layered with incense.
I'm very puzzled about the frequent comments about how people can't smell the incense, because I think it's very prominent! Being someone from a religion where incense is frequently used, I can't say I hate the smell of incense, but I'm not really a fan of smelling like I just went to the temple!
Nonetheless, the marshmallows are just too lovely to forgo. I will be getting a 30mL bottle of this!
Update: I was trying to remember what the marshmallow note reminds me of... the small cupcake dolls from the 90s, with the big hats and skirts you can fold up to make a cupcake! Yummm! : )

I personally don't like the way this perfume smells. I prefer light, citrus, flowery scents. This scent is very deep & I just don't like it. But I do love the packaging & the shape of the bottle. I love the color purple & the butterfly is very cute. It also comes in a big box, which is shaped like an over sized engagement box. But basically, I don't like the scent so I will not be repurchasing.

Yummy sexy and kinda dramatic. I love this scent it has the right mix of sweet and dark that matches my personality really well. I love it. The bottle is my favorite thing in the world I love butterflies and the color purple. It looks so adorable on my vanity and is so fun to use everyday.

This is a fragrance that had to grow on me. Maybe my chemistry changed because I do like how this smells on me now. On me, it smells smoky & like marshmellows with some powder in the drydown. It's really heavy, totally a winter perfume, don't know if i'd repurchase but it is nice.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair, Warm Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
This smells delicious! The scent is warm vanilla & spice. I'm a vanilla addict when it comes to perfumes, and this perfume has a lot of vanilla. Love it, love the price, love the bottle, love it!

I was looking for a new perfume, and found this one. It's very nice feminine scent. The bottle is so pretty to look at which drew me into it. I wore this a bunch of times, but find I can only use tiny bit as it seems over bearing for me. It seems to work better for me in the cooler months. (and I mean cold months) I made the mistake of putting this on, on a hot summer day, and went off to the mall shopping and it was gaging me so bad I had to go home and wash off! Definaltey more of a winter perfume.
