WHAT I SMELL: Cedar chips and cat pee; that’s M/Mink’s opening to me. It’s incredibly urinous and surprisingly I’m not offended. There is a bit of honey that tops off the cat pee…maybe that’s what keeps it from being completely repulsive. After a good 20 minutes or so, M/Mink begins to mellow and the patchouli brings a bit of sweetness in. There’s also a tinge of incense that is ever so light that it seems to fade in and out. Beyond that, M/Mink doesn’t develop all that much. I don’t love it and I don’t hate it…this is one of those fragrances that you really have to be in the mood to wear.
Base: Patchouli Leaf, Clover Honey, Amber
THREE ADJECTIVES THAT DESCRIBE M/MINK: urinous, curious, modern
BOTTOM LINE: M/Mink is dichotomous in that in sniffing it part of it feels warm and cozy while at the same time there is something very remote about it. M/Mink is also what I call a fighting scent. That means that I would wear something like this when I don’t want to be messed with cause I’m just not in the mood!
