About Minotaure

The Minotaur is a reoccurring theme in Pablo Picasso's work, and this is where his daughter got the name for her only masculine fragrance. The name "Minotaure" is sculptured in the glass circling the whole bottle. The fragrance itself has citrus topnotes, herb heartnotes and basenotes of musk and amber.

Reviews of Minotaure

This is straight up nastiness, no other way around it.

It's like this weird and cheap body spray for Women. It's this fruity and non-descript concoction. Honestly, this is disgusting and in no way at all a smell for Men.

A chemical blob. A wall of aroma chemicals. Synthesized fruity notes laid onto a white musk base equals... Woman. Outside of the fact that this smells like it's a girls body spray, it's just not a pleasant odor. It's flat, hairspray like and totally feminine. Incredibly synthetic and this is from testing a first formula 5ml mini. Cheap garbage of a perfume. On a quality scale of 1-10, this is a solid 2. I hate this!

I used to wear this in the 90s and liked it... I bought very recently again from nostalgia and still like it but nowadays there are so many more beuatiful smells around
More like a summer day perfume, lasts and projects well

The original formulation is the world's best Creamsicle.

Minotaur has remained one of my top favorites and never fail go-to scent. Ever since I'd first smelled it in the 1990's, I've always been delighted by its balanced, dignified quality. Love the interplay between the citrus, lavender, vanilla, sandalwood and leather notes - a combo I tend to lean towards throughout the years in other fragrances. I thought this one was discontinued, or maybe it is? Anyhow, a signature scent for me!

Purchased at a discount online for only $20. I had read that this was a once great 90's fragrance, only to suffer from a reformulation change in the modern era. For the price I thought I would give it a try.

While never having smelled the original, the current version scent isn't bad at all. Very citrus-lavender opening, with hints of vanilla, leather and sandalwood underneath. I don't really detect much geranium or jasmine, but there is a little sweetness and gourmand like spice mixed into the middle. After about an hour it's mostly a vanilla, wood and spice skin scent.

It's a very nice scent, but doesn't give you much more than 2-3 hours of fragrance. I recommend a travel atomizer, so you can recharge as necessary.

I'll wear it this fall to dinner and a evening out, but can't see many other opportunities for it. If you can get it at a discount, it is very nice to wear while it's limited for wear.

once an heavy spicy vanilla/ leather oriental, after reform a utterly tamed ghost of the masterpiece this scent, now discontinued, once was.
Good duration and appreciable sillage only with heavy spraying!
