Not good IMO.
Ronnie the Limo Driver from the Howard Stern show apparently bathes in it, and Howard is repulsed.
What does it smell like?
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.

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.
Be yourself! Everyone else is taken!
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.
