Reviews of M pour Monsieur

This one is a mystery to me. On a test strip, the citric opening is stunning and long lasting, and one is convinced of the quality of the ingredients (which is consistent with my expectations for this producer). The pyramid even lists mysore in the base. The problem is that all this high-quality stuffing translates on me to a stellar but short opening, sidestepping the floral heart almost completely, and moving to an anemic wood base. In short, this ritzy EDT acts pretty much exactly like a classic agua de colonia or similar EDC -- light, fresh, and ephemeral by design. Strangely, one remains somehow convinced of the quality of the ingredients and that there should be more to this, much more.

Here is the other mystery: unlike PerfumeCollector's view about the "high price" causing him to reduce a positive rating on the merits to a neutral rating, beautiful large 6.7 oz. flacons of this are now in the marketplace for around $20 -- cheaper than even drugstore agua de colonias. So while I will always have a use for things like Acqua Classica by Borsari Parma, Agua de Colonia Concentrada by Alvarez Gomez and 1916 by Myrurgia, I will now use this highborn Marc de la Morandiere offering for the same prosaic and proletarian purpose.

This time, in stark contrast to the only other review to date (from 3.5 years ago), I would say this is a "Neutral" rating on the merits but, if you care to grade on a price curve, that curve now tilts in a dramatically different direction.

Very elegant but otherwise nothing special. Very pleasant fragrance but there are thousands like it at a much convenient price. A sweet citric opening that turns slightly herbal before reaching the floral heart, to end up un a sweet woody drydown. As I say, very pleasant but not worth the price.
Very close to the skin scent with a decent logevity.
It gets a neutral from me mainly because its high price.
