M (Mariah Carey) Perfume by Mariah Carey, Award-winning musician Mariah Carey gifted the world her debut fragrance M (Mariah Carey) in 2007 . Crafted by perfumers Carlos Benaim and Loc Dong, the scent combines balsamic, floral, smoky, spicy, powdery and sweet accords, resulting in a balance of delicate and intense aromas that easily make it a great choice as a signature scent. It opens with top notes of marshmallow and marine accords before blooming with a heart of gardenia and tiare flower, imparting its distinctive tropical feel. This perfume finishes strong with a base note combination of patchouli, amber and Morocco incense. Its bottle features a butterfly sitting atop a delicately crafted bottle, the brainchild of Elizabeth Arden design director Jean Antretter.
