MV2 indeed is a yummy delightful scent; honey drizzled, warm and delicious. It feels like second skin, deliciously leaving behind me a sillage of sweet delight. It slightly reminds me of Pink Sugar but I find it more wearable, not as intense, not so much as cake-like. MV2 is something I would wear anytime, right for any occasion. This stuff just cannot be wrong. I love it.
An unusual, slightly masculine, rather remote vanilla fragrance from MAC. You'll find no warmth or coziness here, and on certain days the whole thing can smell a bit off. MV2 opens with a discernible lavendar - hence the masculine air -and then moves into a fairly sweet vanilla that's bizarrely grassy and a little lemony around the edges. All the notes have an airy, not-quite-real thing going on, as if they've been spun out of a laboratory and puffed up with helium; the whole fragrance seems to float just above the surface of the skin and never really sinks in at all. An oddly alienating fragrance that I can never decide whether I like or not; it's definitely a weird one. I do get the occasional compliment on it, though, and get the impression that it smells better to the beholder than the wearer. It also has a curiously good staying power; it goes on light to begin with but never really fades away, even after a full day. An enigma, this one is. BTW - I have a feeling it's on its way to being discontinued, as it's become near-to-impossible to find at the MAC counters I frequent. So stock up if you love it!
