    I wonder if this will smell in reality as the notes make me imagine it will as most of the Mercedes range has been quite ho hum apart from Black Leather which is fairly decent.

    It's a very nice woody chypre with a nice vetiver-oud mix which performs very well at least on my skin.

    just got this on thursday. its a very nice soft vanilla, incense, soft kinda scent. even though its not listed i pick up like a myrrhe type of accord. projection is moderate at best and it lasts about 8 hours. very impressed by this and one of olivier cresps best for MB so far. might even be back up bottle worthy.

    The hype on this one had prices going crazy for a bit there, but it's now come back down to the affordable zone as you'd expect for the Mercedes line.

    It seems to be uncredited, but others have indicated that this was another Olivier Cresp scent (which would make sense), which speaks to why the blending here is commendable, especially given the pricepoint.

    It's very, very similar to Cologne of the Missions, just a touch smoother and less sticky. So if you're looking for a good "vanilla extract" style vanilla, this is as good as you'll do without jumping way up the scale in pricepoint for something like Guerlain SDV. In a blind comparison with Indult Tihota, I actually preferred this.

    I don't layer my fragrances, but this would be a great layering vanilla for those who do.

    On me this is very strong. The initial blast is almost too much-I was about to write this one off completely, but as it dries down I definitely get what others are saying-Vanilla Extract and Ambroxan.I really don’t smell any jasmine and if there is incense-it’s weak. If you have this a few hours before a date, I can see it being an appealing fragrance for that occasion, but beware, give it time to calm down! It’s loud!!

    I keep smelling this on my wrist and I’d say I can smell benzoin too...it has a slight tiger balm/medicinal quality!
    Current Top 5:

    Prada Luna Rossa Black, Bortnikoff Musk Cologne, Mancera Cedrat Bois, Versace Eros, Santa Maria Novella Muschio

    All Time Signature Scent: Kiehls Musk

    Have to say this is a fantastic vanilla scent. In comparison Guerlain SDV smelled like vanilla essence you pour into cake batter. The Mercedes is a bit more complex and wearable.

    Yeah, my estimation of this one has grown a bit since my post above (which was already fairly positive). A very good creation, this.
