Mister Marvelous fragrance notes

Reviews of Mister Marvelous

In trying the EDC version of Mister Marvelous, I was expecting roughly a performance bar set by the EDC of Gypsy Water, and MM turned out to be the same---a fresh, fleeting fragrance that leaves a lot to be desired in the area of performance while simultaneously suggesting that the EDP version could be promising.

MM is a citrus, green, slightly floral mix that doesn't lean especially masculine despite seemingly being characterized that way. Main notes include mandarin (not the fruit but the leaf, hence the greenness I get out of it), neroli, lavender (again, GREEN lavender, though I'm unfamiliar with its distinction from most lavender), and cedar.

It's a nice scent, for sure, and one I'd like to see a more robust version of, so I'll have to try the EDP.

Mister Marvelous is hungover and just dropped an effervescent tab of Alka-Seltzer. Dad? I'd scrub it but luckily it only lasts for minutes.

Woody/citric with a touch of balsams

Immediately with Mister Marvelous i detect on my skin the citric cedarwood really intense (sour), woody (perfumed about sandalwood, bamboo and cedarwood), juicy (orange and mandarine) and almost fizzy (or better, properly fizzy like a more sparkling kind of Eau de Cartier). This initial orangy temperament in its run (you can predict soon to become less citric and more balmy) reminds me a sort of Buxton Black Angel (citric and later balmy) without this marked cedary woodiness or a sort of more orangy (but less green/aromatic) Buxton Wood &Absinth. The juicy woody tartness lasts for a while with its fizzy and sparkling orangy (mandarine more than orange) vibe. In the course of the development the floral note from the neroli flower starts to unfold its more delicate effect and reduces the fizziness. I don't detect the listed green notes at all but just cedarwood, citrus and balsams in the body of this citric chypre finally soothed by an amber/vanilla/musk intervention a la Ferrari Red ( which is finally woody and smooth but in a less intense/citric/cedary and more balmy way). In this phase the woodiness emerges with more clearance while some balminess (even anyway slightly dusty/aromatic) starts to express its soothing effect straight from the amber/vanilla combo. The floral vibe keeps on to be starring for long over a woody but smooth orangy bed. I feel this aroma too much common nowadays with all those really woody (and often finally balmy) new citric/aromatic generations. In the average and yes, similar to Armani Pour Homme in a more woody/citric and less spicy/mossy/green way. Poor longevity on my skin.

Pros: Sparkling for a while in a citric way
Cons: Common and with a faint lasting power"

Mister Marvelous good and bad

Mister Marvelous is one of those fragrances that creates an atmosphere or "air" around a person that immerses your space with the clean, original aura of Byredo Mister Marvelous. The smell of the "Mr. Marvelous Air" is crisp, clean, slightly green, a bit of pineapple and very dry - almost sanitized in a way. Mr. Marvelous smells like a marshmallow and pineapple summer salad that is a popular dish here, served at picnics and gatherings during the summer, with ingredients of pineapple, marshmallows, celery, lime jello, cherries, cream cheese/ or cream, pistachios or pecans - all mixed up. This is a refreshing salad when weather is hot and so is Mister Marvelous refreshing to smell. Smells like the salad tastes - refreshing, creamy sweet and tart pineapple. This is what is good about Mr. Marvelous.

The bad part of Mr. Marvelous is that to get to all those sanitized cool pineapple green pleasantries you have to endure a very harsh and bitter chemical initial smell. This harsh unpleasant smell is especially noticeable if you sniff the scent up close - wrist to nose - and it stays like this for the first half hour or so. I am sure many sniff this off a tester, experience disgust, then scrub it off. But it changes after a while into a better fragrance. Once the bitterness starts to fade then you have a very unique fresh clean scent that has quite powerful silage and that creates a pleasant air all around - it is Marvelous.

Pros: clean, radiating, refreshing
Cons: noxious, harshly synthetic for the first 30 minutes

I bought this recently, and having plonked down an extravagant amount of money on a 100ml bottle I am bitterly disappointed.

The fragrance itself is lovely, but has absolutely no staying power at all! (I normally get what would be considered fairly standard longevity with most fragrances.) Between 1 and 2 hours in and Mister Marvelous is barely perceptible, even on fabric. I not only feel ripped off, I feel like an idiot for rushing my decision in the store and not letting it sit on my skin for longer.

Calling this an Eau de Parfum is misleading, this has less longevity than the lightest of light colognes.

Clean masculine scent. Very similar to Armani Pour Homme. Lavendar and Bamboo sitting on top of a wood base. And yes, to pay this type of $$, I look for something that's more than just "nice".
