I thought I liked this enough to buy it. I had a sample and it smelled like Hanae Mori Butterfly to me (which I love). Upon owning a whole bottle though, I quickly realized this was a non-laster and totally depthless. It's quite nice (sweet, marshmellowly, something-else) when you first apply but all that quickly goes away. I also have the body lotion which is hideous, it seems to take all the notes from M I didn't like and and leave out the few that I did. M is boring. You'd be better off with Fantasy or Pink Sugar, if you're looking for "that kinda thing.".

One of my fav perfumes ever! It has a beautiful sexy subtle tropical-ness to it which I love. It's not fruity or too foody scented, it smells like a warm summer night and marshmellows if you can imagine that lol :)
I love Mariah, butterflies, and the color purple too so I love the bottle. I can see how some call it childish though. It's girly and fun!

OMG what a beautiful fragrance!!! Got this today, 50 ml edp spray for $20.00, what a deal!!! Had tested it before but decided to wait until it goes on sale as celebrity fragranceds tend to do! Loving this, I can see myself loving this as much as Fantasy!~!! Maybe even more! Sprayed this on and it softens to a lovely ambery smell with hints of marshmallow but not overly sweet, very well balanced fragrance. I had gotten a compliment on it once when i tested it in the summer from a man.....i can see men going crazy over this one!! Bottle is lovely too, with heavy sort of glass, giving it an expensive feel to it. Well done Mariah!!!

This is a clean, spicy, peppery, hint of powder and fruit scent.....has an east indian flair to it, I think I saw a description saying it had Moroccian spice in it, thats a good description....decent lasting power....I haven't decided just how much I like it.

House is EA. Marshmallow. Gardenia. Amber. Hell yes!!! All 3 are top faves for me and the fact that this settles as a powdery perfume means that this is most definitely a staple perfume for me. All 3 notes listed above are delightfully evident!! I cant pick the "sea breeze accord" ( wth?) but I am in love with this perfume, one of only 3 HG perfumes for me I reach for this very often!! I originally got this in a twin pack with Luscious Pink and I can say that this is the better of the two, and something I keep going back to. This is another warm scent (most of mine are, personal preference) so if you are a warm scent fan then give this one a go. My only grudges are longevity and sillage, both are rather average, I take an atomiser with me when I wear this fragrance. But overall 5 lippies for a perfume that is pure love!

I initially tried this out in Ulta and my first impression that it's sweet (that initial marshmallow note blast). Sweet but not Pink Sugar sweet. I gave it some time to get to the drydown before making my final decision because I didn't know where it was going to go. on me, "M" becomes an ambery incense fragrance with a touch of tiare with hints of the marshamallow and patchouli.
Being the budget-conscious shopper (cheapskate) that I am, I couldn't fathom buying at full price. Actually, by the time I got around to trying it, it was already available at a discount retail stores like TJ Maxx and discount fragrance websites and drugstores. I bought my first bottle at CVS (.5fl oz for 12.99). As far as the packaging, the bottle is cute but I never really give a thought to bottle design as long as the sprayer is easy to use on it (which this is).
When I choose a fragrance, I never give a thought as to who, besides myself, will like how it smells on me. For the most part, I like to wear my fragrances close to my body meaning I don't want to be the sillage monster. I don't want anyone to smell my fragrance before they can see me. This scent isn't too strong but could possibly be over applied. I've received compliments on it hours after I've applied it, so it does have relatively good lasting power. I like this for an everyday, casual scent. I have repurchased as I've almost used up the first bottle in a short amount of time for me (less than 5 mths) considering I have lots of fragrances. Five lippies :-)

I sniffed it in a department store when it came out and immediately dismissed it as "blah". However, after reading the notes which sounded quite intriguing to me, i decided to give it another shot.
Top Notes: Marshmallow, "Sea Breeze" accord.
Middle Notes: Tahitian Tiare, Gardenia.
Base Notes:Amber, Patchouli, Moroccan incense.
Marshmallow, amber, incense? I'm so there! Anyway, shortly after deciding to sniff it again, i stumbled upon a small gift set of it and, at the spur of the moment(yes, that's how i make lot of fragrance purchases, Lord, help me!) i decided to give it a go. Ok, it was only $19 so I feel justified.
My first spritz did not make me fall in love with it by any means. It seemed very blah and generic. Thankfully, that died down in a matter of seconds and lovely sheer scent of amber and incense took over.
Now, i don't smell marshallows at all which is a shame because i was hoping that i would. I finally figured out that weird note in the initial spray was "sea breeze" and tiare which doesn't come through at all after that which is just as well. On my skin, it smells almost exclusively of incense with tiny bit of I lamber. Lasting power is decent. I sprayed tiny spritz 3 hours ago and it still lingers softly on my skin. I would describe it as "sheer oriental" thats very soft and sensual. It lays close to the skin and whispers instead of shouts. I think this would be a nice perfume for a date because its definately sexy but not OTT and you have to lean close to someone to smell it.
I prefer bolder perfumes but I think I will enjoy using my small bottle. Not sure if i will repurchase but only because i have lot of fragrances.
I'm surprised that lot of people thought it was very sweet. I didn't think it was OTT sweet. I think if you wear light florals and fruity frags you mayn't like this but if orientals are your cup of tea, then this maybe a winner. I like the bottle too(contrary to other reviewers i didn't think it looks cheap, i think it looks unusual but i guess it depends what you like)
