It is very green, minty, a little floral, and has a huge wow factor. What we get is vanilla, mint, lavender, cinnamon & tonka all the time, while the previous iteration (vintage) at least had some nuances added to it (like you could have noticed cardamon, cumin or woody-base).
The vanilla is so smooth and creamy, and combined with that lavender and cinnamon... It still smells like Le Male though, but for most users who had vintage one PUIG iteration, may seem to be a little plasticky & shallower than vintage *. Seems like the bottle you have has gone bad :( Having recently received a sample of Le Male that came with another fragrance purchase, I remembered how much I enjoyed this scent.
Again, this isn't a knock or criticism against the seller, the bottle appears totally legit. TBH, I like the way the sample I received not to long ago more than this vintage bottle.
There are a few more bottles around the same time period I'm considering buying but if it's not going to be the stuff of legend then I may just buy a current release bottle.
The base contains vanilla, tonka bean, sandalwood and cedarwood. It's still outstanding I wore this 2 days ago and it still smells great every time I spray it on.
Yet, it's not a feminine vanilla, which is kind of hard to pull off with something sweet like vanilla.The top notes are composed of mint, lavender and bergamot. That's just my opinion don't come at me, I'm not an expert) I only like fragrances. high versatility, no matter where but it is so good! Scent 9 Longevity 6.5 Sillage 6.5 Quality 7.5 This is obviously much better than 3.70 rating in the real world.The heart is composed of cinnamon, cumin, and orange blossom. When I spray it, it makes me feel sick to my stomach bcos it reminds me of the smell of hospital and I can't resist it because of it's SOOOO sweet opening with SO MUCH mint . Some people thinks it's older and copied too much like Cuba gold.A few minutes later I could hardly smell it at all.So I either went anosmic to it immediately or something's off.It opens with notes of Fresh mint is a symbol of strength; the tradition is represented by lavender; vanilla gives warmth and tenderness.
