Coromandel is a delicious patchouli dominant perfume by Chanel from their Les Exclusifs De Chanel collection of fragrances. I have had so many people tell me how great this is and I finally got a chance to do a first impressions review of Coromandel and I’m in love. This is definitely a full bottle worthy fragrance and not just a small bottle I’ve already ordered a large bottle and can’t wait to dig into the bottle and start smelling gorgeous!
Coromandel is all about white chocolate and patchouli and delicious dessert of a fragrance and one could call it a masterpiece composed Jacques Polge. Definitely worth getting your nose on this one! What is a coromandel? According to wikipedia: A Coromandel screen is a Chinese wooden folding screen coated in dark lacquer that is carved before being painted with gold or varied colors. Some may be decorated with precious stones.
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!
What a masterpiece is Portrait of a Lady by Frederic Malle. It’s truly one of the best rose based scents that I own and the cool unique thing about Portrait of a Lady by Frederic Malle is that it’s not too rosey of a rose scent.
Frederic Malle Portrait Of A Lady has just the right amount of incense, patchouli, cloves and cinnamon with the rose that it makes it a spicy, warm and beautiful Oriental perfume. Even though Portrait Of A Lady by Frederic Malle is targeted to women I think it’s unisex enough to be worn by men. Portrait Of A Lady uses the most beautiful Turkish roses to create this masterpiece of a perfume. Portrait of a Lady is very high quality and very expensive but don’t pass this perfume off as a feminine rose dominant perfume it’s very masculine in fact I believe it should be targeted unisex but we can’t help that now.
Tom Ford’s White Patchouli is one of those masculine women’s targeted fragrances that can be worn by men. It’s a patchouli dominant fragrance with lots of white floral notes. Men don’t be afraid of White Patchouli. I bought it on first sniff at the department store and I wasn’t even aware it was targeted to women. It’s warm and spicy with a heavy dose of patchouli and white flowers with hints of rose and coriander and some woodsy notes. Tom Ford White Patchouli is a pretty potent fragrance and does last all day.
Give Tom Ford White Patchouli a try next time you are in a department store and I would say you will be pleasantly surprised at how great it smells. If you are at all a fan of patchouli you will enjoy wearing White Patchouli by Tom Ford.
Bond No. 9 Perfumista Avenue is a new launch from Bond No. 9. Perfumista Avenue didn’t blow me away at first but it certainly has grown on me on my second and third tries/wearings. It’s another fragrance that has a dominant rose note with a plum and leather thing along with it. At times Bond No. 9 Perfumista Avenue has a powdery thing happening too. This isn’t a big, powerful fragrance, it’s more softer but it does has lasting power.
Give Bond No. 9 Perfumista Avenue a try it actually will grow on you. If you like a nice rose or plum or leather fragrance I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised! Similar to Bond No 9 Perfumes – New York Musk and Bond No. 9 Perfume.
