    Default Re: Mouchoir de Monsieur, first time smelling

    Mouchoir de Monsieur is one of my top 10 scents, but I did not fall in love with this at first sniff. The top notes, which are very "civet-y," did not impress me.

    After a few wearings, however, I responded to the lovely lavender, fougere, vanilla. I was hooked.

    Anyone wish to share their experiences with Mouchoir?

    I think it's the lavender that seems to bring out the civet in the beginning, but as the lavender relaxes and mellows with the rest of the fragrance the civet doesn't seem so evident. I have to say though, I really don't mind civet in anything.

    My nose always wants to compare MdM to Jicky and Jicky will always be forever in my top 10. MdM always falls way short of Jicky IMO, but has it's place when I want the warm fougere but not so much of those sensual notes. There seems to be a lot more patchouli compared to Jicky and I really wish it did last longer on me.

    Makes me want to buy MdM immediately now! I love Jicky, would MdM be a safe blind buy?

    Not a safe blind buy. But if you are a Guerlain (and lavender) fan you really should try it.

    I concur with mikeperez23--not a safe blind buy. You must test this one first, and I would recommend a few times.
