It was beginning to border on being a teeenagers choice, and maybe that's where it's aimed? Just finished mine ( in the winter ) and it's a pleasant one.
Definetely not for a sophisticated and mature male. Nothing crazy but if you like a sweet type of smell ( not overdone but mid level ) with some other notes mixed to make it more masculine, you will enjoy this one.
Lol You could use the same analogy with Black XS, it's probably a bit too sweet, possibly a bit cloying and artificial for those of us who are further along the path of fragrance discovery, but despite our more sophisticated and educated tastes, there's a part of us that always yearns for the instant gratification of a fragrance like Black XS - I love it, I don't wear it outside my home, but hey, the world of fragrance is a diverse and beautiful one, I will always have a bottle of this wonderful offering in my world.

Mango extravaganza, I don't care if it's not in the notes, is way too obvious.
As for age appeal: I think it can work as a casual scent for 30 , just stick to colder weather and wear sparingly in casual situations. This part of the perfume is not bad, totally unisex, but I think better suited to teenage girls.Deep and dark sweet fruity notes of the heart are replaced by woodsy notes and amber in the base.In such sweet surrounding amber tends to take a tobacco nuance, while the musk tames the extreme masculinity of this scent.This EDT used to be as strong as an eau de parfum when it was released.I bought another bottle from 2016: you still find the same ingredients as the first batches, with approximately the same proportions, but now it smells more like an eau de toilette.
