My mom has worn this occasionally since its release. I just sampled it on myself this morning. Of course, the initial scent is very sweet, dark vanilla. However, the drydown, on myself, is smelling quite similar to MKK! I do have a tiny bottle of parfum en route to me; I may also buy a bottle of EDP (which is what mom has) - it is very inexpensive. I paid only $60 for a 1/3oz bottle of vintage (though I doubt it has been reformulated) parfum!
Of my 2 most-recent fragrance purchases (full bottle blind-buys) - Bogart pour Homme & Encre Noire - I am hard-pressed to decide a favorite. They are both scrumptiously dark & mysterious...& sweet. This one seems richer, more luscious I think. Very dark & unique...maybe like smoked licorice haha - I love it :P
I like this scent - it smells clean & fresh to me...never smelled it on anyone else, so I cannot comment on that aspect. I can say that this one gets me many, many compliments from both sexes :D
