Chanel 19 does not have the black currant note that Molinard de Molinard contains. There is a slight steeliness, an impression of silver and metal (to me anyway) that 19 conveys, while MdeM is all about the garden. They are similar expressions of the green/floral family, but each is unique and worthy in its own right. Try 19 at every possible opportunity, try to snag a sample and wear it in different types of weather. Then you'll know whether to be saving up for it. Hope this helps!
