Rambo sent me a 1 ml sample of this, completely out of the blue. It was love at first smell. As a first approximation of what it's like, I'd say that it's in the ballpark of YSL Opium--the feminine one, not the masculine. But it's rounder and a bit lower-pitched that that. Also, there's a fair bit of patchouli, which is what really takes this scent over the top, IMO. (I like patchouli, but I'm not a huge fan of the note. But it works absolutely perfectly in this scent.) After one day of wearing it as my SOTD, I knew I had to get a bottle. It was a limited release, though, so it's not easy to find a bottle. As soon as I found one, I jumped on it.
I should add that there's another fragrance called George Sand by Histoire de Parfums, but that one is completely different from the MPG.
