Can I still comment on it?
Now what I want to say with my headline is: Does one read the commentary at all and if so reluctantly, or nevertheless rather to the joy, since there are still some lovers of this million juice...
Here in the forum you can read Kommis and statements from "bähh disgusting stuff" to (achtung quotation!) "A simply very good fragrance with a good shelf life and a very good fragrance" :-)

Personally, I face the fragrance as follows: It has been associated with a certain target group since its appearance, unfortunately.
But I also like him very much and I just don't like clichés. Just because said unpleasant people love the fragrance and overdose it excessively doesn't mean to me that I have to hate it. About Aventus, the almost holy grail of the fragrance world, every week a new thread is added, whether about the batch, or the batch of a clone, or also a request for a better clone of the clone... etc. there are no limits here.

At 1 million there are of course these twin fragrances as well, but they are or have been questioned less often, although there are also some good alternatives.
As far as the original 1M is concerned, only the first batch comes into my house. Unfortunately, the reformulation drama was also carried out here, so that this fragrance in its current version is history for me at the latest since the 2012 Absolutely Gold appeared, from here it was over with the "good" concentration, if not earlier.
I've just put on a splash of my 2008 bottle while I'm writing how a film lays on its skin and shines for a while before the drydown begins. (This phenomenon no longer occurs in the current version)
Of course, this one cannot be surpassed in the strength of this fragrance, Paco had to show what kind of product he brought onto the market!

In the first version, the blood mandarin, which quickly merged with the cinnamon, together with the leather chord and Givaudan's Amberketal fragrance, was an unparalleled scent explosion from the beginning and - well... was also found. Heavy, sweet, oriental, with a sillage against the wind and a shelf life that lasted into the morning hours and beyond.
Here everything was right, bottle, marketing, fragrance and finally the buyers incl. word of mouth which still lasts after 11 years! most of the time.

But today at least every third fan of this fragrance should notice that he is only a shadow of himself, at least if someone used him since his appearance. Blood mandarin, cinnamon, all right there. Peppermint? Where did it come from suddenly? Leather chord, what was that? Yikes? Where'd he go? He has become a short, meager performance.
Like when the Hip Hop and RnB Floor suddenly run out of music, or the fat AMG stutters because the gas is out, the always perfectly slimed hairstyle gets the first gray hairs. So it's the passage of time, best of all everyone stays at home, the cart in the garage and the smell on the shelf of the department store. D

I will use the scent of my remaining bottle for myself in a well-dosed way and indulge in memories, as it was a different time back then... Alternatively I can simply exaggerate and spray the scent up to the headache limit to show some people what they did to us before :-)

You bring back beautiful memories...
Yes, I wore it when it was fresh on the market, bought it spontaneously on the flight from Miami in 2008. It was loud, sweet-spicy, different. My environment only said: "He is very strong, don't spray so much of it". I sprayed 4 times and went on the ramble through the clubs at 21. I was approached positively. At that time he was unknown and extraordinary. I just sprayed it as a 2008 vintage and the blood mandarin paired with leather, roses and cinnamon awakened beautiful memories of that time. I agree with the previous speaker that it is a pity what happened to the fragrance. It is not so bad in itself, has only got a very bad image through wrong carriers

One million
Even though I'm late for appearing today I've become weak at One Million. First of all I have to admit that I do not have such an elitist olfactory organ as some seem to have. I have to like a fragrance..and last long whereas I don't care how far you can smell it..or which head or heart note it has. I leave that to people who create such scents...Some comments are still to smile at.Since I grew up in a country where such exclusive scents were very hard to come by I am amazed how easy it was for me to meet women. I can't imagine that you can hide a lack of intelligence, bad character or unkemptness with a good perfume..because at the latest when the effect wears off the facade crumbles. With perfumes, it's like any other thing in life. It's just a matter of taste. One likes it, the other doesn't and I mean exactly for that reason there are thousands of scents...

The ex-boyfriend scent bad.
One Million was my first "real perfume" what I bought with around the 16 years. Before that I only used cheap perfumes for 12 euros
Looking back, I can not even say why I bought this fragrance of all things. I knew the name and the bottle of our chic Goldbaren simply

and thought I do nothing wrong with it (probably like many in the age). The fragrance is for me a pure evening fragrance. Nothing for clubs but at a house party

or an undertaking in the city with a small group of people. The durability and sillage (8 hrs minimum) are really very good but here also caution is advised since,

the fragrance can quickly become too penetrating people. For the price and the performance it is for me a clear purchase recommendation. But there is also a BUT.

With no fragrance that I own I have often heard the comment,, "You smell like my ex-boyfriend". This is because the fragrance is very mainstream and just

In boys age 16-20 is very common. In itself, this comment is nothing bad the hey he was her ex boyfriend so she probably liked the perfume. Nevertheless, I do not find it

beautiful no own feature to have but only one of many to be.

A little too perfect
Made up, "styled" in New German, no little hair stands away, everything in its place.
The wardrobe (the outfit) meticulously selected, jacket, blouse / shirt, trouser / skirt fit perfectly.
The laptop/smartphone in the latest trend, everything seems to be perfect.
Now put on another scent....eye-catching-unobtrusive... "1Million" seems to be exactly the right one.
Perfectly matched, woods, blossoms and fruits seem to form a unity. Scent successful.
But where is the living, the unique, the individual?
What makes an individual? Your own note? May someone be "perfectly adapted" to the business habits . Someone may like to make a baby cuddle, appear particularly well-groomed and symbolize prosperity; a fragrance for all occasions. Flowery, citric, ambry-ledric, harmonious??
Exactly!!!! All attributes that are praiseworthy?!?
But also here the exaggeration is the death of independence. Too perfect, without corners and edges...
For individualists like me, the wrong scent....

Everyone talk bad about this perfume, but I smelled a sample and I liked it a lot. I now understand because it is a bestseller.

Bombastic macho synthetic ambergris.
It reminds me of cheep deodorant sprays. Matches the fake gold bottle.

''One million? I knew it, my ex boyfriend had the same perfume.''

What are the odds. Nice scent, though. Tacky bottle.
