I was excited when the sample came in the mail. I immediately tried some on and breathed in the delicious scent of warm, buttery custard! Yum!
So I eagerly sought out my boyfriend to see what he thought of it, and by that time the scent had shifted and morphed a bit. He thought it smelled exactly like popcorn, so I took another sniff and it was, indeed, reminiscent of popcorn, but I think that was just the effect of the definite aroma of salty butter, which had grown much more assertive.
The finish was worth the wait, though, as it emerged sweetly once again, bringing a hint of vanilla and creamy, buttery milk, and with an intimate warmth.
I smell like I should be on a dessert menu! I love it!

I used to wear CSP's Matin Calin as something of a signature scent the year it came out so I am very familiar with the scent. While it is a nice enough scent, TFS's dupe is like a very distant cousin to the original. This dupe is missing much of the milkiness that dominates the original fragrance and adds a touch of toasted coconut which isn't in the original. It also vaguely reminds me of Maple Brown Sugar Quaker Instant Oatmeal. For someone unfamiliar with the original and into gourmands, it might be worth sampling though as it has a pleasant scent.

i haven't tried the "real" version of this scent, this was an impulse addition to a sampler pack.
in the vial, i thought it smelled awful, but i know often as not perfume oils are very different on skin than in the vial, so i tried it.
it quickly morphed into a nice, milky-sweet, comforting sort of smell - a bit like sweetened condensed milk, maybe with a hint of something like a sweet roll (King's Hawai'ian bread, sweet pastry, croissant, something along those lines).
sadly that stage lasted less than an hour and it became a coconut monstrosity. and strong!
it became coconut cream, with toasted coconut, and toffee (more bitter than caramel).
probably amazing for folks who don't hate coconut!

I received my shipment today and I don't have enough superlatives to explain this version of CSP's Matin Calin. I ordered and received the 1/4 oz. pure parfum. First of all, when The Fragrance Shop suggests "a few drops will do", they're not kidding! The parfum is so very highly concentrated that if you use more than necessary you'll waste your precious "juice". I LOVE the fragrance development of this parfum. It's intense at first, then it eventually develops into the most gorgeous gourmand--milky, a bit of "burnt sugar" but not on the Creme Brulee side. True to the CSP Matin Calin, this one is a true comfort scent. So easy to wear, so long-lasting, and I haven't stopped sniffing my wrists since my package arrived. Those who love CSP's fragrances, both current and discontinued, will LOVE this! If you're a gourmand lover you'll love this! If you appreciate finely crafted parfum you'll love this! In short, you'll love this!

This is a wonderful, warm and comforting fragrance! I totally agree with Lisa's review; burnt sugar but not overly sweet and she is spot on - sandalwood is the perfect compliment to add complexity and depth! I love this fragrance. The perfect scent for a cozy winter evening with the one you love!
