MdM is awful, as is Jicky. That cat poo combination of lavendar, vanilla, and civet is disgusting to my nose.
I think MdM and Jicky are very polarizing scents.
I applied MdM on one wrist and scoot off to the mall and squirted some jicky on my other arm, and i am wearing CpM.
MdM's animalic side came out when contrasted against CpM. MdM had a citrus opening which brightens it all the way to the drydown (which is the most wonderful thing I have ever smelled.)
Jicky smelled like someone stuffed up stalks of lavender into my nostrils and it hurt a little. Then the midnotes were the same as MdM. The basenotes however, were different. Jicky was softer and smoother and silkier, while MdM was more rugged, like what Habit Rouge is to Shalimar.
If MdM was released today, it would probably be called Jicky pour homme le eau citron or something.
