According to this feature, singer-superstar Mariah Carey’s new signature fragrance, M, has some unusual aroma bases, including Moroccan incense, a flower called the Living Tahitian Tiare, and – get this – toasted marshmallows.
“[The toasted marshmallows are] blended in there,” she says. “It’s not like you’re gonna walk around smelling like marshmallows.”
I’m not exactly sure how the Elizabeth Arden-backed M will fare on the market, but I’ve seen the Australian website, read about the fragrance, and looked at the bottle. I am, to the say the least, intrigued. Having recently purchased for my wife Lacoste’s Inspiration (a simple, light, powdery fragrance that makes for everyday use) and Aigner’s Too Feminine Spring (a seductively Oriental, slightly sweet fragrance versatile enough for daytime and nighttime use), I’ve provided her with two signature fragrances that will last for at least a year, if not two, but I’m wondering if adding M to the mix may just work.
M can be as sensual as it wishes to be, but they had me at marshmallows.
