Not good IMO.
Thread: Does anyone here wear Mambo?
Ronnie the Limo Driver from the Howard Stern show apparently bathes in it, and Howard is repulsed.
What does it smell like?
Not good IMO.
It's Ronnie's signature scent. I have no idea why.
I blind bought Mambo a few years ago, when I was just starting out with my fragrance collection.
When I first smelled it, I was off-putted. I immediately realized this is the same scent a mechanic wore at my local auto-body shop (he was in his early 20s). This is the type of scent young adults wear. I can totally see them clubbing with it on.
To top it off, it's EXTREMELY strong. It's a projection beast. That's why I totally understand where Howard is coming from on his disgust of the fragrance. I would be too. It's both very synthetic and strong, double the trouble.

I can see why Howard would think Ronnie bathes in it. A couple sprays of this could take out a whole room.
For the price, it is not bad.
I used to wear it, but gave it away. It has a TdHness to it, but it is dated and STRONG. Spicy, a little synthetic, and I will not buy again.
I wear it occasionally in summer. Hard to describe, I think of it as a bright, lively scent.
It was a winner of Best New Fragrance of the Year in the Basenotes awards many years back.
I guess the crowd is different here nowadays.
Haha. Yeah, I caught that episode. Was wondering what it smelled like too.
Top 5 Winter Frags:
1) Tabac Rouge
2) Scent of Peace for Him
3) Amyris Homme
I think Lou Bega wears it. He layers it with Chanel No. 5
OMG, where's Bigsly?
Snarky is as snarky does.
Very generic and synthetic and strong.
I'm not OLD...I'm VINTAGE!
Mambo is REALLY bad. I used to have a bottle, and got rid of it for 5 bucks. It's an orange based fresh fragrance, that gets mangled by chemical smells. One of the worst chemical smelling fragrances I have ever smelled. Steer clear of this one.
