Lyric82's Review of Musky Garden by Mancera

I honestly feel like the reviewer below me received a sample of the wrong fragrance. It’s could not be further from what I smell. There is nothing burning, no tobacco, it’s highly feminine, and it doesn’t smell woody in the slightest. The only thing I agree with is that it has a slightly muddled feel to it.

What I think this smells like, if you took Coco Mademoiselle and mixed it with Valentino Donna Born In Roma Yellow Dream. I even tested this theory, and I was correct, that’s exactly what this smells like.

I’m sure you’re familiar with the coco Mademoiselle scent, because who isn’t, but I’ll describe the valentino because that’s not as widely known. A citrusy and rosy musk. The musk is synthetic but clean and fluffy.

The musk in this is very similar, and I think that might be off putting to some, but it’s not for me. I like this because it’s pretty close to Coco Mad, but different enough that you don’t feel like you’re wearing something that everyone has used and/or smelled. And it also lasts longer.
