    Lightbulb How good is Mauboussin by Mauboussin?

    A friend of mine suggested me Mauboussin bu Mauboussin. Though it is a feminine fragrance but he insisted that it is extremely good and can be used by males as well. I tried my luck to find it at local stores but its not available anywhere. Finally I found it on ebay ($40), but before buying (of course blind ) would like to have the experts views!!

    I have it and wear it, doesnt seem more feminine than say hypnotic poison. I get overripe fruity oriental, vanilla, bit of sweet tobacco later on. Its very nice and unique unique unique. Also love the M Generation also super unique very manly.

    I would venture to say this is an excellent unisex oriental scent. It is lightly sweet. The tobacco is clear enough to be noticed.

    You can buy this from many discounters in the U.S. You may wish to enquire if they ship outside the U.S.

    The notes: top notes of yellow plum, bergamot, red tangerine. Middle notes of white peach, Indian jasmine, ylang-ylang and Turkish rose. Base notes of amber, patchouli, Indonesian sandalwood, cedar, benzoic and vanilla.

    I like this one - I have it as the EDP. That's a bit overly sweet for me - the EDT might be a good choice. And I agree - M Generation is really nice.

    I had it but swapped it because the sandalwood chemicals were too much for me. I like Histoire d'Eau better, and you can get 1.35 ounce bottles on ebay now for $11 total !

    I did this as a blind buy and it was a home run. I love it.

    I think the EDP is usually recommended over the EDT.

    A little of topic but what are the chances this fragrance is faked? I got a 3.4 EDT but the glass on the button is chipped but it is smooth and appears to have been blown that way. Also, the fragrance is really light and lasts 10 minutes tops. Most of the reviews I have read insist that this fragrance is strong and lasts long. What are the possibilities my bottle was faked!
