Vilhelm Parfumerie Mango Skin was created in 2018 by Jerome Epinette. A fruity floral that is on the TikTok Rich Girl Cult Faves list, it goes on with a glorious citrus sweetness that is like the best day of summer. Notes of mango, blackberries, black pepper, wild orris, black lotus, jasmine, patchouli, vanilla, pink sugar.
From the brand - "With a single bite, you can feel the mango in your veins. Wild colors, endless skies and untamed happiness: breathtaking South Africa becomes the backdrop for this expressionist burst of blackberries, mango and black pepper. A ripe fruit that reveals its complex flavors — a cocktail of wild orris, black lotus and jasmine that leaves behind patchouli, vanilla and a hint of pink sugar.."
Fragrantica - "Smells like a warm, beautiful, relaxing summer day. Like a Saturday morning that you don't have any errands - you just wake up feeling great and head out to see what's up in the world.It's feminine and tropical-fresh (without the fresh notes) without being too much. It's bright and fruity, but in that just-enough type of way."
Fragrantica - "Mango Skin showcases the sweet and juicy aspects of a ripe mango, but also has tart and sour fruity notes to it due to the carefully worked-in blackberry. There are definitely spicy, peppery undertones. This scent screams summer, it's fizzy and sparkling, but not light. Just very happy and uplifting. The patch and vanilla base and the deep sugary sweetness add some weight to it."
Fragrantica - "I was in some private island sunbathing under the warm sun getting ready take a bite out of a ripe succulent mango dipped in the finest pink sugar. And as I sit there enjoying this raw juicy mango, I catch the aroma of a beautiful bouquet of the most luscious tropical flowers next to me as the breeze hits my nose and drives my senses wild. Mouthwatering juicy mango fresh opening with a mixture of exotic tropical flowers that lingers and evolves with the right amount of sweetness (not gourmand) without ever being too cloying. There’s no coconut so don’t mistake this for suntan lotion kind of tropical fruity smell. The mango does settle a bit down the middle and in the end but you still can smell nuances of it that flow throughout the journey of this scent. On my skin it is an intoxicating olfactory concoction that draws many, “what are you wearing, you smells so good!”
