Summary: After testing Mahora for 2 days in a row I can say this was definitely not an easy perfume for me, but now I've tried it more often, it actually grows on me more and more. I'm looking forward wearing this during summertime. Some reviewers comment on the opening as harsh and not pleasant, but actually that's the best part for me. I love the opening and if the scent stayed lineair from this moment on I would be a happy woman.
A lovely fragrance ... but somewhat disappointing!
8 May 2013
Summary: Being the Tuberose nut I am, I have wanted to try Mahora since discovering it on various fora ... a scent buddy in Sweden sent me a very generous sample (thanks C!!), and while I find it lovely, I can't help being a little disappointed by it too. When one is a Tuberose junkie, it is very difficult not to favor the greats ... like Blonde and Fracas, and even some of the modern incarnations like Carnal Flower and Tubereuse Criminelle.
Summary: Mahora by Guerlain is tuberose done a little differently. I should have realised just by looking at the advert, (with Australia's landmark Uluru as a background feature in the Mahora photoshoot), that this was not going to be a straight-up, luscious tuberose scent. This tuberose is dry, a little bitter and green, mixed in with some wet sand.
Summary: I love Guerlain perfumes - they always have a complex story that unfurls as the fragrance opens up on your skin. Even if you wouldn't wear them, you can't help but admire their unique composition. Mahora will never be on my wish-list, because I would never be able to handle this kind of pushy, midnight lady. Mahora hurts me - she forces her way deep into my lungs with her sahara sand, aldehydes & heavy, honeyed flowers. I can almost taste her!
Excerpt: i have had sooo soo many compliments when i've worn this perfume,particularly during crisp cool days or nights.it can be a little 'out there' so if u wish to blend in with everyone else...wear something else!
Pros: Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Long-Lasting, Unique
Excerpt: If you like light and powdery scents, don't get this one. It has a unique and slightly mysterious tone. It's a total stinker to spray though. Undoubtedly the bottle was designed by some man who never tried to use it. It's worth the work though.
Pros: Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Long-Lasting, Sexy, Unique
Excerpt: I bought this fragrance for my wife. Once bought it she wants to have it for ever. I had looked for it for a very long time till I found your site. I am very glad that I could order this outstanding and highly unique scent for a very special occasion. Thank you very much. You made two of us happy.
Excerpt: This wonderful fragrance can be "dressed up or down" from morning through evening and on through the night....from less to more. I have searched for other fragrances to replace this one since not easy for me to find...but nothing else will do...I gave my husband two un-named choices...and he immediately chose Mahora...just like me. It IS me!
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Husband loves it, Long-Lasting, Nothing else comes close, Sexy, Unique
Excerpt: This Fragrance is truly feminine, yet sexy and sophisticated at the same time. Because it is an Eau de Parfume,the oil content has staying power. I use it as it suits my mood. Have received many compliments and it is not just an ordinary fragrance.
Pros: Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Great Value, Long-Lasting, Sexy, Unique
