  17. Re: The Master MPG Reformulation Thread [Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier, Reformulated]

    The top notes of the older formulation are far richer and more complex, slightly herbal and a little more unisex IMO. The new is a more linear lemon/berry/musk which fades and lingers as a berry/musk...

    Re: Any Feminine MPG's good on men?

    Fraicheur Muskissime is almost more masculine in the top notes and settles down to a light berry and musk skin scent.

    Eau des Iles could easily be pulled off by a woman. This is more feminine IMO...
