The making a stink folks on YouTube said there’s a synthetic leather aromamecule called QBC or something like that? I don’t know the exact name but it’s in pretty much every synthetic leather fragrance so I’m guessing that note that everyone is connecting with is most likely that synthetic material. I’m sure someone on here will know the exact name for it.
Interesting. I’ll have to go check them out and look up that ingredient, I’m not familiar with it (at least by name) but I think I’ve smelled it in a couple Chanel’s and YSL, along with a couple Amouage.
For me this is where it is a problem, it is ALD but not comparable to any other ALD (even the ones I don't like, in terms of quality). It is at an ALD price but most people here are comparing it (in some cases unfavorably) to synthetic perfumes that are 1/3 or 1/4 the price. I think it was a mistake to market this as ALD.
Exactly! Shouldn’t have been priced this high either. If he did throw in some high quality expensive ingredients I feel it was a big waste of those materials. I wouldn’t buy Manly even for half the cost though. Ive never felt like this for any other ALD either. I don’t like Baikal Gris but would trade 100ml of Manly for 1ml of BG. Because in BG I can appreciate the quality and also the artistic vision.
