    Default Hanae Mori (HM)

    I tried this one, and I personally liked it.

    It is a fresh scent, which seems great for the summer, but it also had a sweet floral scent to it. Looking at the ingredients now, I see the lavendar, iris and jasmine, for the floral midnotes. In the basenotes, we get into more interesting scents like cedarwood and amber, as well as the gourmand vanilla, chocolate, tonka bean. This is probably what many people would call a fougere fragrance, but a fresh one.

    I only sampled it once, so I can't develop a full opinion, but when I try it again, this could likely get an 8 out of 10, in my book. But to me at least, it stood out from the crowd of boring fresh fragrances.

    Your thoughts on this one?

    I own a small 30ml EDP bottle and like it. I get mainly the lemon on top and vanilla in the base.

    I voted "like it." It is a very good fragrance that is not really my style, but its certainly worthy of purchase IMO if you like the genre.

    Found it to be horrific. Love strong, long lasting gourmands but hate the shrill floral aspect of it.

    I once was walking behind someone wearing it. They were walking really slowly and I kept having to stop to maintain around 10 metres of distance because it was making me feel ill. Sold this last week. Second worst blind buy behind Fuel for Life by Diesel for me.

    never got gourmand except one time when i woke up in the middle of the night smelling vanilla. Mostly, I just get the floral and sharp citrus that I do not care for

    I like it a lot. I think I would love it, if I had less in my wardrobe, I would reach for it more. Actually just the other day I was looking through my 130 or so fragrances and found myself wondering which ones I could do without. I could only drop down to around 50 or so, and H.M. was one of them. A nice fragrance for Spring especially, with a creamy side to it. Very much along the lines of Arpege pH, but more complex.

    I often find myself craving this sweet lemon bomb. It reminds me of a time when life was very simple (for me personally) and I often use this when I want a bit of a pick-me-up.

    It's quite a daring combination of scents. I hate it on some days, and I like it on some days. I seem to like it more than other people who are smelling it off of me though.
