Even though I would never wear it, I would not mind having a colleague at work who smells like this. First I want to say I find it so artificial that the CDG fragrances now all seem very natural and friendly. Yes I can smell synthetic elements in Serge Lutens' Fleur d' Oranger and yes I know most of the things I have in my wardrobe have a lot to do with the disguised chemicals, but the perfumer of the 'LMT' really pushed the envelope it this respect.
At first it is very similar to the original: the initial explosion has so many ingredients it is hard to tell which of them truly dominate, but to me this super rich combination mostly smells like orange blossom, orange peels, nutmeg and lavender. Of course vanilla is also very noticeable, but it is not the main culprit for the incredible sweetness of this scent. I find it sad that the mint note is so shy. I adore minty notes. The mint could have been the light at the end of the tunnel and a very nice counterbalance.
To be completely fair and honest, I am glad I gave it a try, LMT is a lot of fun, it's very sexy + it is not much worse than the popular fragrance offerings of today, so I guess... ...yeah... that's it....
Pros: Dry down is way better than the original's
Cons: Nothing and everything at the same time"
