The people who give this a thumbs up either seem to be anosmic to the iodine/milk/metal accord, or admit that it's vile and unwearable, but admire ELdO for selling it. I have a different take, this scent is vile BUT wearable, which makes it OK by me.

I can smell this, and the previous reviews describe it well enough. All I have to add is that it reminded me of another notorious fragrance, Sécrétions Magnifiques by Etat Libre d'Orange. SM contains this in its base, and while l'A smells like a freshly opened pack of that white adhesive tape they used to use in hospitals, SM (after several hours) is funkier, like bandage tape after it's been used for a few days, with a bit of dried blood. I prefer more full-bodied perfumes so I won't be buying a full bottle, but this would be good on days when you can't use a full fragrance, or as a gift for someone who doesn't like heavy perfumes.
