    Default New from Oriflame: Manful

    From gb.oriflame.com:
    manful_ad.jpg
    Feel your desires awaken with this intoxicating fusion of exotic saffron, cinnamon bark and roasted tonka bean notes. Manful Eau de Toilette exudes carnal power and cries out for closeness. £13.95 for 75 ml.

    The name is a bit..much, but the notes sounds pleasingly spicy. I think it's been available since August/September, has anyone tried it?

    Agree that a better name could have been chosen. Don't often run into this brand except in my travels.

    Architect wasn't anything special at all, so not rushing to try this one.

    I must say the notes make it seem a dessert for starved supermodels.

    I got this perfume today, blind buy. Wow, I didn't expect it to be this girly. I was open for something new but this stroke me as a women's fragrance from the start. As it evaporates, things get a little better but just a little.
    This is a unisex fragrance at best, certainly not manful as they call it. It would smell alright on a middle aged lady maybe but definitely not the first choice for a man.

    Well, Oriflame is Swedish.

    Yeah, well if they're raising a nation of hermaphrodites, that's one thing but they sell most of their perfumes to Russians for god's sake :
    Anyway, they have a few very good fragrances. I like Signature and Ascendant best. And the rest is so, so ( I smelled around 20 of their man fragrances). But this one is the first that smells like lady's perfume.

    I'd like to hear some other opinions on Manful. Maybe there's something I'm missing here, and maybe there's somebody more experienced with perfumes to enlighten me on this one.

    Thanks for your impressions, espresso. So not really spicy then, that's disappointing to hear..

    It just seems different... Don't get me wrong, it actually smells nice and I enjoy smelling it... I'm just not sure how to feel about it. After several days I like it more than I did in the beginning but still I'm confused.

    I didn't ask anyone yet but I think that girls would like to smell something like this on a man they love. I'd describe it as a fragrance for a man who is blindly in love, oblivious to the world around him.
