    Jesus Holy Christ ... how can someone "LOVE" this skunk sweat ? I got a bottle a few weeks back , a blind buy going by the "best seller" reputation .... and man its gross !

    It smells like my GF's ( perfumed ) underarms the morning after a night-long of hot sticky sweaty making out ...

    How can this be termed a perfume ? Its a weapon to stay away from the crowd !! People in the elevator would step aside to make way for you ... its that bad

    Anyways , taste varies from person to person ... so nothing personal here .

    You give it too much credit, it's not nearly that interesting.

    This. On our side of the Atlantic, it's been completely taken over by the teen chav brigade. Completely unwearable unless you want to be one of them.

    I like One Million, kinda. It's a little sweet and borderline pour femme perfumish. It's nice though. Almost pretty. But...it's kinda candyish, and I just don't know that I want to smell this candy sweet. I'd rather there be some notes in it that are a little pungeant to kinda balance the sweetness. But if sweet is not a problem for you, it's a buy!

    I'm pretty sure no one has faked PM. That bottle would be a BEAR to copy.

    1 Million is great for the night. Woman like it, but, at least, here at Brazil, 90% of the guys has this one and use it even to the class at the day!

    If there was one fragrance I could destroy, it'd be 1 Million.

    The way people have bandwagoned this in England is actually disgusting. Everyone wears it, all of the 18-25 year old clubbers will wear this, like someone else said it's a pile of shit. Absolute shit. What makes it worse is you know people buy it just because it's one of the only scents they've heard of.

    Thank God I discovered this forum.

    sigh. more myth propogation. ppl who post so frequently should know better.

    OP - 1 million is becoming overused where I live, so enjoy it before it becomes an unwearable cliche. It's really hard to still like something after you smell it on roughly 1/10th of the guys in the club

    So do I, even if I seem to belong to the more powerhouse, old-school fraction, there is nothing wrong in liking One Million

    When I was visiting I got wafts of it in the tube consistently. Thankfully I'm in North America so I am actually able to enjoy the fragrance and be somewhat unique.

    Hey guys!

    I'm new to basenotes so don't give too much hate to me =)

    But anyway.. I recently just got a bottle of 1 Million and I think its pretty good. I hear its all the rage in Europe but I was curious if it was all that popular here in the States. I would rather not smell like the hordes of Fierce kids here

    I think it smells good in (small) doses. I'm not a huge fan though. My wife likes it, so it may go in the "wear it to occasionally appease her" category along with Le Male...

    It reminds me of Lapidus pour Homme for some reason. But I think it's unfairly maligned by noses-on-High. The blood orange and mint accord is well done and very masculine.

    Also, the bottle is very conservative and classy, quite a demure design sensibility there.

    Got a bottle this week. Smelled like burnt oranges and some sweetness to me. Gave it away. Also got Versace Dreamer and didnt like that. Maybe it is just me

    does the dry down of this annoy anyone besides me? I like the opening with the fruity bubble gum but later on it fades into something else.

    Kind of a strange drydown indeed. Hard to say what it's like though, but it does take me back to '80s power fragrances in its feel.

    I have to admit this is one of my most interesting scents. For me though half a spray is more than enough. Projects like a beast and lasts all night!

    I flip flop on this scent so much. But I will say it LASTS. I wore it for a whole day and I could smell it clearly the next day at work. It actually got a bit annoying. But it seems to last longer than any Mugler scent I have. For better or worse.

    I really hate 1 Million. I couldn't get past the opening bubblegum scent. Maybe I'll revisit this scent in a couple years.

    I got rid of my bottle awhile ago and the bubble gum opening was just too 'young' for me.... kind of obnoxious, too.
