I've owned this for awhle now (full size bottle) and I agree that the almond is pretty overpowering. Especially for me, a guy. The only way I found to wear this out is to spray VERY lightly because it's so easy to overdo it.
But I will say this ... I think it's one of the best smelling fragrances on earth ... and when I'm home alone and not going out, I'll spray away at will because I just love almond and marzipan so much.
