    Outrageous! by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

    I am not sure why is this classified as a women's fragrance on basenotes. It is not overtly feminine by any means. Even Barney's is selling it as a men's fragrance! Now to the fragrance: It smells like a mixture of wet paint and children's cough syrup- atleast for the first couple of hours. Of all the Malle creations, this smells the cheapest. Its one thing not liking the smell. But this one smells CHEAP! Even Coty Aspen might exude more quality than this one! The drydown isn't half as bad, and is a bit reminiscent of Guerlain L'Homme for men. The only reason I would give it a neutral is for trying to create something different and for originality. It fails in every other regard.
