Top 20 Spring Colognes and Fragrances

Top 20 Spring Colognes and Fragrances

Spring is here and I’m ready to wear my fragrances and colognes that are best suited for spring weather. It doesn’t get really hot here in San Francisco so I’ll be focusing on wearing fragrances that are best for mild weather. I’ll have the hotter weather fragrances ready though if I go to the Central Valley or LA where the weather is always warm!!

This year I decided to just do a Top 20 Spring Colognes And Fragrances video as last year I focused on spring and summer. Stay tuned for my Top 20 Summer Colognes And Fragrances video soon!

Poo Pourri Review – Fragrance For Your Poo!!

Poo~Pourri Review – Fragrance For Your Poo!!

Poo~Pourri is one of those miracle products that works. Works so well and covers up stinky bathroom smells after you go. It’s a secret formula that was created by the folks at Poo~Pourri and comes in a spray in a milky liquid that you spray in your toilet bowl before you go to the bathroom, or have a bowel movement. 4-5 sprays is all it takes. The essential oils push down the stinky smells of your bowel movement and push up the fresh lemony smells in the Poo~Pourri up in the air and your bathroom smells like you haven’t gone to the bathroom. It works great and everyone should know about this excellent product!!

Imaginary Authors Falling Into The Sea Fragrance Review

Imaginary Authors Falling Into The Sea Fragrance Review

Falling Into The Sea is the second fragrance review from the Imaginary Authors collection of fragrances. I thought the notes sounded the second best in this Imaginary Authors collection so I decided to review Falling Into The Sea next.

Falling Into The Sea smells great but it’s not a fragrance I would rush out to get. I’m more into the darker scents so I will stick to Bulls Blood for now even thous Falling Into The Sea smells nice. It’s a great composition of citrus notes like grapefruit, lemon and bergamot along with lychee fruit notes along with exotic tropical flower note and warm sand.

Falling Into The Sea is a unique fresh scent. Check it out from Imaginary Authors.

Why I’m Getting Rid Of My Bergamotto Marino by Gianfranco Ferre

Why I’m Getting Rid Of My Bergamotto Marino by Gianfranco Ferre

 

Oh yeah! Simply put it sucks in performance! I can use a 10 dollar cologne called 4711 for the performance I get because they are comparable. Also I don’t care for the melony salty marine or aquatic accord in this fragrance. So this is the reason I’m getting rid of Bergamotto Marino.

So you tell me! Did I screw up? I think I did good. There are a lot of other fragrances in the same category that perform much better. Try Mugler Cologne by Thierry Mugler or 4711 by Mäurer & Wirtz. If you double the price you can even bump up to Eau d’Hadrien by Annick Goutal for a real nice sharp citrus scent perfect for hot humid weather!!

Yves Saint Laurent M7 and M7 Oud Absolou First Impressions Review

Yves Saint Laurent M7 and M7 Oud Absolou First Impressions Review

M7 m

I finally got to experience the infamous M7 by Yves Saint Laurent. This fragrance was composed by the two noses – Jacques Cavallier and Alberto Morillas with Tom Ford as creative director during his short lived career at YSL while Yves was still alive.

yves-saint-laurent-m7_1

My first impressions of M7 is an excellent Oriental woody fragrance that I loved. It’s a shame that M7 by YSL is discontinued. Although it’s still around and still obtainable for around 200 dollars it’s unfortunate it’s discontinued. M7 has also been reformulated and rereleased recently and available. It’s a great fragrance as M7 Oud Absolu I think the original M7 is the superior scent.

M7 Oud Abssolou

I’m grateful I got to experience M7 finally and will think hard if I want to go ahead and shell out 200 dollars for a bottle of M7. If I’m desperate I’ll do it otherwise I’ll add a bottle of M7 Oud Absolu in my collection! Thanks for watching!

Imaginary Authors Bull’s Blood Fragrance Review

Imaginary Authors Bull’s Blood Fragrance Review

Once again I’m exploring an indie house and this time it’s Imaginary Authors! I wanted to start out with Bull’s Blood first as Bull’s Blood seemed like the most intriguing of the notes in all of the fragrances I received from Josh Meyer the nose and owner behind Bull’s Blood.

I’m actually pleasantly surprised at how great Bull’s Blood is by Imaginary Authors! It’s a great scent to start my exploration of the Imaginary Authors! And you know me I’m a huge fan of Rose and Patchouli in fragrances and this one is all about that but with a lot of musk and some leather or suede or material/cloth of some kind in the mix. It’s great. At times I get hints of Musk Oud from By Kilian. Overall a great scent. Check it out if you haven’t and stay tuned for more First Impression reviews of Imaginary Authors fragrances!!

Insurrection Pure VS Aventus VS Fresco

Insurrection Pure VS Aventus VS Fresco

There’s been so much hype around Insurrection Pure 2 so finally I had to give it a go. I ordered 3 bottles. I figured if I didn’t like it I would give them away since they come in such great packaging. But what I’ve discovered with Insurrection Pure 2 is that it’s a great quality scent for the price. In fact I would pay more than 75 dollars for this fragrance. Creed Aventus is very very expensive but it smells great. It’s much cooler and crisper than Insurrection Pure 2. In fact Insurrection Pure 2 is sweeter a bit more amberier or with a sweet vanilla accord. I loved it.

And where does Ilum Dean Fresco stand here? Ok that stuff is crap. It does smell like Creed Aventus but it sucks! LOL! Could be fine for just everyday use but that thing just does not last.

Histoires De Parfums Moulin Rouge Fragrance Review

Histoires De Parfums Moulin Rouge Fragrance Review

I love everything about Moulin Rouge and I enjoy wearing this powdery, fresh fragrance. Days that I want something simple I grab for Moulin Rouge from Histoires De Parfums. I know that some men might find Moulin Rouge a bit challenging to wear as it does come off feminine but once you get past that you might enjoy it. Just think of the powdery qualities of Dior Homme Intense? Histoires de Parfums Moulin Rouge has the same dominant iris note that’s in Dior Homme Intense but they both go into different directions.

Histoires de Parfums Moulin Rouge 1189 captures the Moulin Rouge in a bottle. Just give it a sniff you’ll see what I mean!

Karl Lagerfeld For Him Fragrance Review

Karl Lagerfeld For Him Fragrance Review

Man_Loves_Cologne_Karl_Lagerfeld_fragrance_men

Man_Loves_Cologne_karl_Lagerfeld_men_bottle

Wow, this fragrance feels so damn rushed. Why? Why Karl Lagerfeld would you even put your damn name on this disappointing fragrance? You are an icon and trendsetter but not with your latest fragrance?

Those of you that are intrigued and are interested in sniffing the new Karl Lagerfeld do it then sniff Azzaro Chrome and smell the comparisons of the two as they are very similar. You might end up saving some money on this disappointing fragrance!

Karl Lagerfeld For Him feels like a rushed fragrance it smells like every other department store fragrance for men. Check it out as you’ll know what I mean! :)

Black Magic by Sebastiane Fragrance Review

Black Magic by Sebastiane Fragrance Review

Finally the last video for the great Sebastiane fragrances collection and this is first impressions review of Black Magic.

I was actually not that excited about Black Magic that’s why I left it to the very very end. I was not that excited about the notes so that is the reason it got left behind but I liked it and enjoyed it a lot and probably would own this one because it smells great. I should have switched it up with Urban Legend.

It’s a clean scent and could be an everyday scent and would be perfect for spring and summer wear as well. Now that I’ve sniffed and shot these videos I’d love to go back and sniff Sebastiane’s fragrances again and see how they do since I know a little more about the fragrances. I’d love to give Urban Legend another try to see if I like it after the second sniff.

Thanks so much for watching the series of videos for Sebastiane fragrances!
