Reviews of Outrageous

There is a beautiful hint of fresh real apple in the beginning but unfortunately it is stampeded over by screeching white musk. Makes me feel like biting tinfoil. It is likely much more pleasant if you tolerate laundry musks better than I do but still I think it is not worth the price. Gone in 60 minutes.

My review is based on a couple of wears from a sample. I am so happy I did not blind-buy this, even in travel size.

I only smell some green apple and laundry musk in here. I hardly get any spice. In fact, Outrageous is closer to mass market fresh sporty-aquatic scents, dishwashing liquids and laundry detergents.

A complete misfit in the Malle line, I perceive Outrageous to be a poor joke that casual unsuspecting buyers might become a victim of. A cash grab, if there ever was one.

When I first tried Outrageous years ago, I HATED it. That mix of fake orange and weird synthetics so repulsed me that I avoided smelling it for ten years. Then, the publicity surrounding its 2017 re-release inspired me to give it another try, and so help me, I rather like it now.

I think what surprises me the most is how much of a blueprint this is for Aventus. It's all about the bright citrus on top of a rich mix of ambrox and woods with just a pinch of bleachy synthetics, but Outrageous has less bleach and woods than Aventus, focusing more on the creamy richness of the ambrox, and of course Aventus uses pineapple instead of the mandarin aldehydes employed by Outrageous.

In all, I'd rather just wear Aventus, as I prefer the pineapple and upfront woods, so I don't think I need a bottle of Outrageous, but the combination of freshness and richness makes sense to me now and is quite well executed, so a rather surprising thumbs up!

Memories: Hot, alive summer in Arizona. Charismatic presentations and seminars. Boldness in a bottle.

Who should wear this: Werner Erhard. A lively school principal at a Montessori school. Elijah Wood. Me.

Bottom line: I love the whole OUTRAGEOUS fragrance. Orange (or tangerine, really), bright, bold, incredible. It is one of my new top five scents.

generic, mass market, boring skin scent!

Screechy synthetic; metallic. This is one of the few scrubbers for me. Gotta go. (Combo gag/cough)
