    Mauvais Garçon (nothing “mauvais” in here really) is a warm-spicy scent with a “barbershop” floral heart (lavender and other floral notes I personally don’t detect clearly), a head accord of bergamot, something minty-green, something balsamic, spices (the pyramid is trustworthy – I get tonka, cumin, cinnamon, nutmeg), cedar and sandalwood on the base. The evolution is close to zero, it all goes lighter and softer. Honestly it smells much mainstream to me, in the negative sense: it reminds me of several cheaper scents, and I don’t get anything in here which shall be a “niche” feature (no particular high quality/creativity, and so on). Among others it reminds me of a couple of Cacharel’s, from Pour Homme to Nemo – just more floral, more herbal, incomparably less fascinating and less rich. Just a spicy-woody resinous floral scent without praise or blame... which I wouldn’t consider “bad” at all, rather just “nicely” mediocre.

    This is an excellent masculine smokey vanilla scent with some woody notes around the edges. The top opens with a bit of foodie yummisness, but in moments the vanilla starts to come through and continues for the lifetime of the scent. By the base, it has a full vanilla scent grounded by the woody notes which is a real joy to smell. It lasts 6+ hours on me. Sillage seems pretty good; I can't smell it across a room, but I don't need to bury my nose into my skin either, it hovers pretty nicely away.

    This is definitely on my list of frags to own for casual or evening use.

    Edited to stress that this is a smokey vanilla and can be coy sometimes. Sometimes the smokiness dominates, sometimes the vanilla is more up front on my skin.
