    Bigarade Concentrée by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

    Definitely the underlying the cumin/BO spice is similar to that used in Declaration, and I dislike it for the same reason as I dislike that Ellena scent... . This one has a bitter orange at the forefront that smells nice, but the cumin undertone ruins it for me. In Declaration, the BO note is more prominent, and as such makes me dislike that even more than this, but it still is "visible" enough to make this a tough one to tolerate for me, and folks in relatively near proximity. Very linear in nature as most JC Ellena scents are (not a bad thing in my book), but when the scent is rotten from the start, that does not help. I'll swim against the tide and recommend a pass on this 2 star out of 5 scent.
