Hey all. Just got my wife the standard mfk br540. I am having a bit of the common nose blind issues with it where a direct sniff i maybe get one blast then it almost becomes a subtle skin scent. But what i am getting is a big blast of what feels like the fragrance fog that stores like hollister use to pump out into the malls on a toxic level. Im assuming this is a big ambroxan bomb or perhaps iso e super? Does anyone harken back to those kids stores when they smell this. I just cant see this frag as a huge beast mode sillage monster that it is touted as. I love the initial whiffs i am getting but soon after smells like hollister ambroxan bomb to me!

Any better luck with the extrait?

Thoughts on the nose blind thing with this?

Frag was purchased on fragrancenet. Not sure if this can matter. Thanks

I smell it fine. However, I have both versions and I don’t think the extrait would be better. I actually get more ambroxan from the extrait vs more IES from the eau de parfum. I don’t know if you are the same, but I know I have an easier time smelling diluted IES than ambroxan. I base that on my initial tests of Molecule 01 vs Molecule 02.
