"....in 2006, before I became a perfumaniac...."
:D :D :D LOL !!


No one likes that word, Andre, but Im sticking to it! 


I remember the first time I smelled MV2 - a woman was wearing it at least six feet away from me, but I was getting faint wisps of the scent. I loved it so much I had to go over and ask her what it was. That was over ten years ago and I've worn it ever since. I have received countless compliments and strangers just like I was, approaching me to ask what I am wearing. Now it's discontinued and I'm on my last two bottles from Ebay. The end is approaching...and I'm not ready to let go. I was hoping you might know of a company that actually does accurate scent-match perfumes or oils? Thank you so much for this post!


Hi Nishi,

Im so glad this was useful/enjoyable to you! I know what its like to love a discontinued perfume, particularly one like this that few people write about. Im sure there are people who will duplicate a perfume. I dont have any recommendations, however, and I know I would hesitate to do such a thing. Ill ask my facebook perfume group if they have any suggestions. In the meatime...keep hoarding!


I have the box of all three scents (did they sell them separately?) I haven't worn them for ages, but I think I will dig the box out and give MV2 another try.

Another MAC 'vintage' thing was those sets of three oils. I'm trying to recall the names.... I want to say Ubersouk, and Tarmac Flower...., and I forget the other one. They were odd but pleasant. But annoying in that you couldn't buy a three-pack set of all three oils. Each one came in it's own set of three. Which you would never use up, given the strength of the oils.
