This is the soft, subtle version of Michael by Michael Kors IMO, smells quite similar but rather well-behaved. Unlike Michael, this never tried too hard to be sexy. It's more of the pure, creamy tropical floral than the strong tuberose with heavy incense base which is more floriental, like Michael. Just lovely and feminine. This is what I want Michael to be.

I don't detect much gardenia in this one. To my nose, it's more of the sweet smelling frangipani blossoms dipped in warm vanilla sugar and fresh, subtle coconut milk, with a whiff of incense burned nearby. So feminine and romantic. Never scream 'I want to be sexy' like some other tropical floral inspired by Tahitian monoi, with the strong white flowers and the overly sweet …Read more

I was so excited with the idea of blending sumptuous, buttery tuberose with sweet, juicy sugar cane. I love the smell of both but never thought they could be along side each other in perfumery. I love this kind of daring, 'out of the box' thinking about tuberose rendition so much that I ordered a sample of this and was indeed very impressed with the way it smells on me. This is one of …Read more

May/13/2008

This is the best orange-tuberose scent I've ever come across. It opens with a burst of fresh, citrusy floral (neroli, orange blossoms) with a splash of cool, minty green lingering to the drydown. The heart of this enchanting fragrance is pure white floral, tuberose, lily, magnolia and honeysuckle, delicate and ethereal. This drydowns to the honeyed-sweetness on my skin, reminiscent of a …Read more

I recieved a carded sample of JMC from a generous swapper and I liked it so much since it's heady white floral with the sweet, dewy jasmine/honeysuckle type of smell that I detected from top to middle note. I smelled just the hint of lemon in the base, enough to add the tangy-freshness to the fragrance but not too much. I was so excited about this and decided to order a bottle of edp. When …Read more

Delicious and intoxicating. Not sure whether there's orange note in this but I smell the tangy freshness cutting through the sweet, succulent jasmine/honeysuckle. The drydown is smooth, sensual and a bit earthy with dark chocolate, sandalwood and amber. The chocolate note is clearly pronounced, creamy and luscious, like authentic, high quality chocolate bar. This is the perfect combination …Read more

No offence to Guerlinophiles here but this is the only one Guerlain I appreciate so far. This is the best rendition of ylang ylang I’ve ever smelled. The first whiff is quite strong, reminiscent of the actual blossoms in my garden, with their high-pitched, sweet and fruity aroma. I also detect the sharp green edge which is similar to the real flowers. Then the high-pitched top note is soften by …Read more

Just have a chance to try Tubereuse Criminelle after shying away from it for a while. The description of this fragrance as dark and mysterious tuberose, even dangerous, sounds like it’s suitable for much more daring and sophisticated lady, not me, since it seems too complicated and difficult to pull off. Many people also commented about the bizarre top note which was described as anything from …Read more

Feb/17/2008

When I tried this for the first time, I thought it's too sweet for me. But one day I just dabbed a small amount of this on my arms to add a touch of warmth in the cold winter month and finally, I've learned how to love this. It's the most intoxicating and delicious scent I could eat my arms. Though it's nothing like the living frangipani in my garden, it's still very …Read more

Feb/16/2008

Can't rave enough! This is for the body but I also tried it on my face and loooove it! My T-zone is very oily but I can't use any oil-control cleansers cause they tend to be too harsh for my super-sensitive skin. Most water-based cleansers also make my face red, dry and strip. I thought I would never find any products to match my complicated skin condition but this shower oil has …Read more
