Reviews of M

A remastered release of a classic hit.

M has been one of my favourite leathers for quite some time. Its stereoscopic, spicy opening features a bright citrus that lifts the scent while hinting at the depths that are to follow. The leather here is well worn, polished to a gorgeous patina while warm spices add textural interest and lends the fragrance breadth. Imagine the dark sheen of a supple leather conditioned with oil infused with florals and spice.

I think it is fair to describe M as derivative of Bel Ami. It clearly replicates the same citrus, spice and leather accord. But the term derivative has negative connotations and I don’t mean it in this way. M is not a slavish cover version. If you think of it as a copy, it is more like a remastered track. It’s almost as if Roja Dove managed to secure the master recordings for Bel Ami and then proceeded to massage the entire composition, significantly boosting and dropping the bass line, adding more sonic colour and texture, and taking the ending in a different direction. Where Bel Ami fades out, M develops the scent further into muskier, richer territory.

If you are a fan of Bel Ami or just leathers in general, M is recommended. If you would like it dirtier than M, consider Roja Dove’s Fetish Pour Homme, which is my favourite out of all three, although be forewarned, it is a more challenging wear!

Nice enough but I get no leather and a cargo hold of cumin. It certainly projects. It's possible there's an alchemy happening on male skins but not mine, but I'd say go for something like Epice Marine at a better price. Antonia and Opardu are my favourites from this line.

I was expecting something more modern since this was made in 2010. Reminds me of two cheapies that I own, Mr. Blass and Carven Homme, but is darker and richer than both.

As DNDB has already stated, a spicy version of the original Bel Ami. Whoever blended this fragrance (not sure Roja Dove was 'hands -on') has done a terrific job -- just so smooth.

I paid full retail also and consider it money well spent.

Fragrances as good as this come along very rarely and should be treated with relish.

An oriental spin upon one of the very best spicy leathery chypres classics I've ever smelled... Bel Ami.

Did this cheap bastard pay full retail? Why yes, yes he did!

When one reads "The one that renders all others obsolete" or other such nonsense, one is inclined to roll one's eyes. I've read as much about M, not once but a few times, and my orbs stayed put. M smiles at perfection and perfection smiles right back.
