  • Absolute Scentualist: This was probably my least favorite of the CM flankers thus far. There was something really sharp and synthetic in the top notes and after that left, there was just a more tenacious version of the original CM. A pity, really, because some of those bath and body products look really lovely. I still love Liquid Nude and Luxe wasn’t too bad, either. September 10, 2012 at 12:22pm Reply

    • Victoria: I haven’t smelled it yet. Disappointing news. Some CM flankers have been very good. I was hoping that the bath pearls are nicely scented. September 10, 2012 at 2:12pm Reply

  • maggiecat: I liked Liquid Nude as well, and do like this new one quite a bit. I find it soft and not as synthetic as the original – very easy to wear, pleasant scent for when one wants to be inoffensive as opposed to adventuresome. September 12, 2012 at 2:29pm Reply

    • Victoria: “When one wants to be inoffensive as opposed to adventuresome” is a great way of putting it! Yes, we all certainly have those days. 🙂 September 12, 2012 at 4:16pm Reply
