Bentley For Men Intense Review

Bentley For Men Intense Review

Bentley For Men Intense is a boozy, ambery classy men’s fragrance with a budget price tag. It smells masculine and lasts a long time and is better suited for cooler months or evenings and formal occasions. Well it’s perfect for office settings too but go easy on the trigger with this one as it lasts a long time.

If you’ve smelled a fragrance called Idole by Lubin you will find similarities with these two fragrances although the similarities were more present with Idole EDT rather than EDP which is only available currently but either way both fragrances have a rum dominant note that’s very intoxicating. Bentley For Men Intense is a fragrance that’s a great deal and full bottle worthy!

Ralph Lauren Supreme Oud Review

Ralph Lauren Supreme Oud Review

A great smelling, short life oud fragrance from a designer house by the name of Ralph Lauren. A bit late in the game for Oud fragrances here but as I said it smells great. I just wished it lasted longer than the 2/3 hours I sprayed it on. If you think of Tom Ford Oud Wood with a little bit of cinnamon spices then this is Ralph Laurent Supreme Oud. It’s an EDP concentration.

This is an introductory video with Jeffrey Dame of Dame Perfumery. We discuss the entire current collection of fragrances in the Dame Perfumery catalog. My favorite being Dark Horse a new release with the dominant notes of guaiac wood, cinnamon and cloves. So delicious!

Imaginary Authors A City On Fire Review

Imaginary Authors A City On Fire Review

Imaginary Authors A City On Fire Review With Josh Myer. This is a quick review of A City On Fire by Imaginary Authors at the Imaginary Authors workshop in Portland, Oregon. This was also such a treat to sit with Josh Myer himself at his own workshop to sniff some of the notes in the perfumes he’s created including A City On Fire. Josh and I discuss A City On Fire and the notes that went into making this excellent smoky fragrance.

Josh also mentioned that he has some new perfumes in the works and one of them is a rose dominant one which I can’t wait for. I now am the proud owner of 4 perfumes from Imaginary Authors and the lastest of which is The Cobra And The Canary with A City On Fire, Mosaic and Bull’s Blood! Thank you for watching my Imaginary Authors A City On Fire Review with Josh Myer!

Top 5 Vetiver Fragrances

Top 5 Vetiver Fragrances

Here’s a list of my current Top 5 Vetiver Fragrances with an honorable mention and a couple of vetiver based products you can use with your vetiver fragrances such as Lucky Tiger Deodorant and Aesop Deodorant. I’ve been a huge fan of vetiver based fragrances but started with of course the most infamous of vetiver fragrances and that is Guerlain’s Vetiver. I have worn this one since the late 90s and have thoroughly enjoyed wearing vetiver as a fragrance. Vetiver is basically a perennial grass that is native to India. A lot of vetiver is farmed in places like Hait, India, Java and Reunion.

Montale Black Aoud Review

Montale Black Aoud Review

Finally my first niche perfume purchase in Spain and it turned out to be Montale Black Aoud. A stunning, rose and oud perfume that’s targeted to men but it’s totally unisex, that reminds me or hints at Bond No. 9’s New York Oud. And don’t forget Montale Black Aoud also has a big dominant note of patchouli so it makes for one intoxicating masterpiece of a fragrance. I absolutely love this fragrance and even though I discovered it so late I am happy to have Montale Black Aoud.

Carolina Herrera CH Men Review

Carolina Herrera CH Men Review

After 6 years from it’s release, Carolina Herrera CH Men is finally getting the hype it deserves. I hate to give in to the hype as well but as I’m traveling Spain I see Carolina Herrera fragrances all over the place even though Carolina Herrera is not Spanish but Venezuelan background with a fashion business based out of New York City. The Carolina Herrera fragrances are licensed through PUIG a Spanish based company which releases fragrances!

I bought CH Men because it’s actually a great scent and one I had not gotten my nose on prior to this trip. It’s a nice sugar dominant leather and vanilla scent with hints of Violet. I loved it but it’s not anything extra special. It’s a great scent but something very accessible and pleasant. Could actually be an everyday scent something you can wear most every day, for work and situations like that but it’d not something that’s going to blow your mind!

Dior Homme Parfum Fragrance Review

Dior Homme Parfum Fragrance Review

I have finally gotten my nose on Dior Homme Parfum and man what a fragrance Dior Homme Parfum is! It’s unbelievably beautiful, intense and very sexy stuff. One of the sexiest fragrances I have put my nose on. The creamy, chocolatey cacao notes that’s in Dior Homme Intense has been intensified to make it very delicious. In addition the leather notes is quite big here too. Almost a slight bit animalic. Don’t be turned off though as it’s not a gross or bad animalic note. It’s still very very sexy.

If you’re a fan of DHI then you will really love Dior Homme Parfum. One of the best releases of 2014 in my book. Niche or designer. Get this stuff now!!!

Thierry Mugler Mugler Pure Havane vs Reyane Insurrection 2 Wild

Thierry Mugler Mugler Pure Havane vs Reyane Insurrection 2 Wild

I have really been enjoying Reyane’s Insurrection series of fragrances lately. First there was Insurrection 2 Pure by Reyanne the Aventus Killer. Then there was Insurrection 2 Dark which smelled like Spicebomb and now there is Insurrection 2 Wild which smells like Pure Havane. I mean Insurrection 2 Wild smells so much like Pure Havane I’m baffled at how close they are. The issue is if you compare the two together side by side you will notice some differences. Especially when you first spray Insurrection Wild but once it dries down they both become very very similar and you can’t really tell them apart.

This is really great because those of you that have been wanting a bottle of Pure Havane and have not bought it because it happened to be too expensive or just didn’t want to spend that kind of money then it’s time has come. Because Insurrection 2 Wild can be purchases for under 25 dollars. Whereas Pure Havane is suggested retail for almost a hundred dollars but it can be purchased for around the 75 dollar but still a good $50 dollar savings if you end up with Insurrection 2 Wild instead of the real thing.

Check out Insurrection 2 Wild. You’ll see it is very very close to Pure Havane. And if you don’t compare the two you’ll even think you are wearing Pure Havane. Performance was pretty darn great too!!
