Marron Chic is Dior Homme on steroids. The iris is more concentrated and intense, just a smack in the face of facial powder. I happen to be okay with this note, but it can be rather off-putting. The gourmand tones are an orangey-chocolate, that, although excellent, are a bit too much. I'd say that the gourmand/iris notes function 50/50 when they should instead be maybe 70/30. It's okay, but definitely not for everyone, though I kind of like it. In general, I'd go with Dior Homme instead.
Smells like a basket case cousin of Dior Homme. When DH is refined and cultivated, this one is careless and cracked up completely.
Imagine low-quality brown play-doh ball that has been perfumed up with chocolate flavour.
Starts out very strong on me, but then its fading very very fast.
First sniff is unmistakably iris. Opens up like Ferre for Him or a non-sweet Dior Homme; lipstick. Goes into a doughy gourmand accord on the bottom. I kinda like this but am turn away by the cosmetic note.
