Matin Calin captures what it aims to: warmed milk with lots and lots of sugar. It has a bit of a burnt note which I personally enjoy, rather like the sugar has begin to caramelize. Makes me think of slowly boiling milk in a pan, though, with the burnt note, I've probably left it just a bit too long. This fragrance doesn't change at all throughout, it is very simple and unsurprising.
It has poor sillage, you must be right up to the skin to smell it. It also has poor lasting power, pretty much gone in an hour. This is a thumbs up and positive review, however. It is recommendable. If you like a warm, milky comfort scent, Matin Calin pulls it off. Not sure I'd ever wear it outside the home.
Eww. This definitely smells like baby vomit. And I don't like kids, so this is not a good thing at all.
I think the tester must have been off -- it smelt like baby's sick. The sales assistant called me over as he had smelt earlier and wanted me to confirm that it was the worst smell ever and I almost gagged -- rotten milk mixed with toffee -- this wasn't auto suggestive, it was baaaad. If it wasn't off, I don't want to be near anyone who is wearing this. Makes Secretions Magnifique seem like a bouquet of flowers in comparison.
I like this a lot better than I thought I would. I mean… sugared milk? How attractive is that as a personal fragrance? Well, it does attract: it’s fun; it’s unique; it’s enjoyable. There is a weak milk note, a weak sugar note, and a weak vanilla note, and they combine to form this light and delicious gourmand, I think the reason I like it is that its lightness doesn’t allow it to get annoying. Very linear, but that’s not a problem in this case. Somewhat feminine as far as I’m concerned, but I wouldn’t argue if others don’t see it that way. I’ve seen the comments about incredibly poor longevity, but it lasts about an hour and a half to two hours on my skin. I like it.
I like the smell of Matin Calin, but to call this a body scent? I don't know. It's a little strange walking around smelling like butterscotch. They call it "toffee milk" but I don't smell the milk or the sandalwood. I do smell the vanilla and what they call "sugar candy." The scent is warm and creamy, for sure, but it's a bit too much like wearing food for my tastes. To each his/her own!
Fabulous! But only in the beginning. For real milk lovers. Very sweet, even sticky and although so far this is the first "milky" fragrance I find quite satisfying, I cannot wear it all day long. It is rather boring and the fresh notes that probably were supposed to add some life to the milk and sugar are disturbing.
The longivity is dissapointing.
