Great for the office! Woody, strong, manly, a confident man wearing tie and suit.
Only thing that upsets me a little bit: has a sweetness that doesn't match the concept. If it was a wine, I wouldn't drink it. Still a good one, though.

Top is a bit green and fresh/citrusy. Goes to a clove-like smell, quite interesting but turns quickly into a drunk old man and cheap shaving foam blend. Besides, everybody uses this cologne.

It projects well and has good longevity. I wish people could stop compare Barolo with this. Barolo is spetacular: sweet, woody and classy. Nothing more to say about.

Um dos melhores perfumes brasileiros até o momento. Compete de igual para igual com os importados famosos, diferentemente do resto da linha Boticário, que é mais genérica, mais simples. No meu caso, o Malbec fica com um cheiro levemente adocicado, muito agradável, com um toque de cheiro de vinho. Projeção e longevidade são boas.

O Malbec atende perfeitamente a proposta que oferece: um perfume que se assemelha a um vinho (além de ter Alcool Vinilico na sua composição)

Malbec, inicia-se bem fresco- algo como casca de laranja, especiarias picantes,folhas bem aromáticas e um cedro de barricas.
Logo evolui como um bom vinho tinto, para um aroma mais adocicado- como frutas secas (ameixa seca) e um leve toque de baunilha.
E permanece assim: amadeirado, adocicado e especiado até o fim.
Ele fixa por 6-7 horas, mesmo em dias frios e a noite não aumenta muito a fixação. Quanto a projeção ele projeta bem por 2 horas no calor (somente), mas depois fica rente a pele.
Perfume digno do sucesso que faz no Brasil.
Gostei, mas não compraria novamente.

Fragrância/Fragrance: 7/10
Fixação/ Longevity: 7/10
Projeção/ Sillage: 7/10
Versatilidade/ Versatillity: 7/10
Try/ Buy/ Pass: Try

Malbec meets perfectly the proposal of the frangrance: a perfume that is very similiar a wine (It has Wine alcool in its composition).

Malbec starts fresh like an orange peel, spices, aromatic leaves and a cedar barrels.
After this, it looks like a good red wine: sweeter aroma-like dried fruit (prunes) and a touch of vanilla.
And remains: woody, spicy and sweet until the end.

Malbes has a longevity of 6 hours, even on cold days and at night does not increase much teh longevity. The Sillage is good on the firsts 2 hours, then it gets close to the skin.
Perfume that deserve the success that's doing in Brazil.
I Liked it, but I won't buy it again.

I wouldn't wear it but it's still a good perfume.

If there's the need of some choice about Malbec and Barolo, this second one is the best from O Boticario!!

Way better than Barolo, imo. This one is a hit here in Brazil. The reason is simple: it is probably the best offering by O Boticario. Malbec is a successful attemp to create a scent that resembles a demi-sec type of wine made with malbec grapes. The fragrance has, indeed, a very strong smell of wine and woods. It is very masculine and has good projection and lasting power.
Unfortunately or not, Malbec is quite possibly the most overworn fragrance here in Brazil for the past years. It's maybe a good option to people who live in another country though, because despite of its popularity, it's very original compared to other modern fragrances. It sure does deserves a try!

Thumbs up for Malbec.

Ok, talking about this fragrance is kind of like complicated for me, as it doesn't please me. I'll try to be impersonal.

Malbec is a phenomenon in Brazil, is the most sold-out fragrance by O Boticário, you can feel its smell everywhere around here.

Take it serious: this is not for summer or hot days, it is too strong, maybe that's why I don't like it. I live in Brazil, a very hot country and people don't mind on wearing it at any time what makes its smell unbearable to me sometimes.

It gives a strong citric first impression, going into a more fruity aspect because of the Malbec grape seeds oil and then you have a woody completion. Be sure about the grape scent, it is very pronunciated. My worst complaints about Malbec are the lack of balance among the notes and the strong appeal to grape scent, which makes the fragrance sickening.

7/10.

Embora seja muito forte é um ótimo perfume. Infelizmente você não se torna nem um pouco "especial" ao usa-lo, já que todo mundo conhece e usa-o.

There is a liquid soap with grape seeds that is sold in the O Boticario stores that I find pretty enjoyable. I still love the perfume itself (more than Barolo by the way), but man... I smell it EVERYWHERE!

Excelente. Não parece com nenhum (Só com Barollo da mesma marca) outro. Novidade no mercado internacional, apesar de já estar antiguinho. Único,elegante. Recomendadíssimo.

Love it! Very yummy! I´ll give one to my boyfriend.

Uptade: It's like Barolo indeed, but I think Barolo is safer and this one is more edgy.

Barolo: Woods.
Malbec: Spices.

I know Malbec, Barolo and special edition of malbec: "black" gran reserva. In my oppinion malbec it's not strong fragrance and too acid also, is too bother. My prefer is black version, but unfortunatelly her it's launched just five to five years. until it's launch, Barolo is the best in my opinion.

It's very good, it has a scent that really reminds of wine.

Unfortunately, now it became so popular... you can smell men wearing it everywhere.

Nice to see this brand here, and a surprise too, since most of O Boticario's scents are not properly "perfumes", but "colognes". I remember the first one, the now classic "Styletto", a hit when I was very young. This Malbec was the last scent from Boticário that I`ve tested, and in fact I bought a bottle. I had some reservations about it since Malbec is a hit and many people in Brazil already know it, and because on the paper I thought it was a little strong; I also read this opinion (about being strong) in some brazilian foruns. But, different from other scents, Malbec smells better on my skin than on paper, and, at least for me, is not strong (in the sense of being overwhelming). I don't know if you could say that is a "wow" type of scent, but makes its mark since sillage is pretty good, and longevity too, by that matter. Feels fresh, no doubt it is masculine, and I find it pleasant. A shower wouldn't make it disappear so easily, but I love the reminiscent smell that rests. A scent with a wine note? Well, yes, I think I can identify that note. And I like, as I like the bottle, and as I like wines ":-). Since I`m still not an expert, I don`t imagine another scent to compare to it right now, and give a better picture about Malbec. Great!
