First ahhh I tested the bottle straight from the mail because I couldn't wait haha.
 
In the bottle, it smells like mango syrup, like melted gummy candy. Wet and initial dry down is more of the same. And then! It becomes a little green and less candy like, such as when you eat a mango and you eat the flesh that's closer to the skin. It is now a very ripe mango, perhaps overripe, and it takes on a creaminess that reminds me of...sunscreen? (For whatever reason, this scent reminds me of Disney World, Animal Kingdom in particular.) A few minutes later, no more candy; it smells as if I have my nose to the skin of an overripe mango. I'm pretty happy that I got the bottle.
 
I found this to have fairly decent throw as I only applied the tiniest dab to my wrist and I was getting whiffs of it as I went about the house doing things.
 
I don't find this to be foodie at all. At the end of the day, it's a bit floral/perfume-y on me.

That first review is spot on. First impression smelled like what mango candy tastes like: not really mango but more of a super sweet interpretation of mango (think watermelon jolly ranchers vs actual watermelon). Then a sharp, not-quite-ripe piney mango. And now it's creamy mango sunscreen and yeah, Animal Kingdom ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

This is really yummy and has a lot going on for a single note. Definitely has a floral aspect to it. I don't know that I'd layer this one; it's complex enough to wear on its own.

In the Bottle: Yummy, juicy mango pulp. Like the kind you can get from Indian grocers that come in, like, a gallon-sized can that you open and make delicious lassi drinks out of. Nomnomnom

 

Wet On Skin: Wow. That's amazing. It's morphed a bit, and there's a decidedly "green" undernote to the scent, which is pretty unexpected, especially being a single note. It's working, though, adding some complexity to the scent.

 

Dry Down: Yeah, I don't know the how or why, but both my partner and I also concur with the Disney Animal Kingdom thing. It *does* also smell like yummy tropical sunscreen and *also* like maybe a tropical gummy candy. I don't know what kind of layering I might do with this scent, but it's certainly a pleasant enough smell on its own.

I'd agree with the reviews above, in the bottle it's a juicy, sweet mango, almost over-sweet, kind of like mango candies. On my skin, this green note comes out and the sweetness of the mango candy smell goes down a couple notches. On dry down, this smells like a mango sunscreen - and I'm totally okay with it because I love the smell of sunscreen. It's not a bad sunscreen smell at all. Like a tropical mango candy with like a sunscreen after tone to it.

Bright juicy mango candy. In some instances it kind of reminds me to mango pudding. If you like sweet blends and have been craving a mango blend, give this a whirl. Medium throw and wear length.

Surprisingly wearable form of mango, sweet but not cloying. Almost floral, edge of almost perfumey.
Very good, definite keeper.
