Mandarina Duck Pure Black fragrance notes

Reviews of Mandarina Duck Pure Black

The opening is nice but the drydown is boring, generic and powdery sweet. It reminds me of Ducati Fight for Me, which is a generic version of Boss Bottled.

Performance is average in projection.

Semi sweet with citrus(orange)fragrance with a considerate amount of vanilla and tonka. I've smelled something like MD before. Just can't put my finger on it. Overall, it's a decent fragrance. 7/10

great for the price

solid bergamot opening. great vanilla/tonka drydown. a safe scent that garners compliments. longevity is at 6 hours for me. if you don't wanna spend 50 bucks on 1 million or la nuit try this and ab millionaire which are great alternatives.

Pros: sweet clubbing scent
Cons: not an everyday scent"

Way too sweet and heavy. this reminds me of the type of fragrances that some guys wear to the clubs just because they think a strong perfume will get attention, truly awful. Ultra masculine in a wrong way.
The first sniffs give me a headache, I can see that alot of people like this fragrance, but I don't like it at all. The drydown is a little better, warm but not so sweet as the opening notes.
The only positive thing is the longevity, but for the fragrance per se this is a no-no.

Just a boring simple fragrance. An overly sweet tonka bean note dominates this one. I wish the fruity/citrus notes were less muted. Save your money, ya you! You! The one contemplating blind buying this because it's hard to get a sniff of it. Instead, go with Jovan Satisfaction for men, or Samba Kiss Me, they smell about the same, and are a small small fraction of the price!

Mandarina Duck Pure Black by Mandarina Duck - Initially, one is treated to a fresh orange. Tangerine, with its bright and tangy, orange facets, commingles with bergamot, with its bitterwsweet, orangey and a slightly peppery character. Indian pepper, with its earthy and woody mustiness, serves as an undercurrent, carrying the citric accord to the heart. Here, the citrus is subsumed by tonka bean, which imparts its creamy aspects of vanilla, cinnamon, clove, cherry, and almond. Orange blossom bestows its sweetly indolic, citric, floral accents. And, exotic, Tahitian tare infuses its softly sweet and creamy, tuberose-like and somewhat balmy floral. This remarkable melange flows nicely to the slightly tempering base. The resplendent tonka bean marries with a full-bodied, dark and faintly smoky vanilla. Woods, in the form of a creamy and soft sandalwood, as well as a greenish, balsamic cedar, winningly temper the sweetness. A pleasing drydown ensues. Far from being a dark and brooding scent, as the appellation may suggest, this wonderful composition is bright and sweet, yet retaining its masculine slant. Its projection is good, a 3-hour scent cloud before becoming a skin scent, and its longevity is average.
