Tauer Perfumes L’Air Du Desert Marocain

Tauer Perfumes L’Air Du Desert Marocain Review

I found a masterpiece again and that fragrance is Tauer Perfumes L’Air Du Desert Marocain or simply known as LDDM. What a beautiful Oriental spicy fragrance this is. All the great fragrance notes that typically go into the Oriental fragrances like cumin, amber, coriander plus notes like cedar, vetiver, petitgrain, jasmin and rock rose to make for a beautiful, velvety, creamy fragrance.


On first sniff Tauer Perfumes L’Air Du Desert Marocain was great but it was at the end of a night at a perfume event and my nose was experiencing fatigue. Second time I tried Tauer Perfumes L’Air Du Desert Marocain and I got really excited and fell in love with it. This was my first official sniff and finally I purchased Tauer Perfumes L’Air Du Desert Marocain on my third sniff. I love this one now and it will be in full rotation for me this coming fall and winter seasons. The nose behind Tauer Perfumes L’Air Du Desert Marocain is Andy Tauer.

If you’re into the Oriental style perfumes then get your nose on this masterpiece. It’s excellent!!

Commodity Goods & Whiskey First Impressions Review

Commodity Goods & Whiskey First Impressions Review

Commodity Goods fragrances are exclusive and the only place you can buy the fragrances are from https://www.commoditygoods.com mail order. The unique thing about Commodity Goods is you can order samples and try them at home. They are called The Try At Home Fitting Kit: https://www.commoditygoods.com/fitting-kit and you receive samples from the Commodity Goods collection that you sample at home. And the fee of the fragrances will get applied towards the purchase of one of their fragrances. I think it’s an excellent concept and definitely worth exploring this new unique fragrance perfume house.

I immediately liked the idea of Whiskey so I ordered Whiskey blind and I’m pleasantly satisfied with what I got. And can’t wait to order more from Commodity Goods.

As always thank you for watching, subscribing, commenting, liking and sharing this video! 🙂

Imaginary Authors Memoirs Of A Trespasser Fragrance Review

Imaginary Authors Memoirs Of A Trespasser Fragrance Review

Memoirs Of A Trespasser is nother great fragrance from the Imaginary Authors collection of indie fragrances created by Josh Meyer. This a masculine vanilla fragrance that a man can pull off. It’s a big, bold, woodsy, earthy vanilla. It has slight touches of booziness which I love.

Memoirs Of A Trespasser author is Philip Sava again who also wrote Cape Heartache. The two fragrance compliment each if you think about it. They are both utilizing woods and earth for the notes.

I’m very impressed with Imaginary Authors and can’t wait to go through the rest of the collection of fragrances in the catalog of it’s fragrances.

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.


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!

Karl Lagerfeld For Him Fragrance Review

Karl Lagerfeld For Him Fragrance Review



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!

Hermes Voyage d’Hermes Parfum Review

Hermes Voyage D Hermes Parfum Review

I was very intrigued with the Hermes Voyage d’Hermes fragrance concept the bottle that is but I wanted something potent so when the EDP was launched late 2012 I wanted to take a sniff and see how it was. I loved it immediately and I loved that it was a very fresh and spicy and man the cardamom is king in this fragrance. Those of you that love cardamom in your perfumes and fragrances and colognes should take note here. This is an Hermes fragrance after all so it’s going to be very fresh but with that spiciness from the cardamom.

With spring and summer just around the corner Hermes Voyage d’Hermes Parfum is going to be one of those fresh spicy scents that I’m going to be pulling for. It’s excellent and works pretty nicely. It has decent longevity and performance for a fresh scent. If you don’t know about Hermes Voyage d’Hermes Parfum check it out I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how great it smells!!

Bvlgari Aqva Marine Pour Homme Cologne Review

Bvlgari Aqva Marine Pour Homme Cologne Review


This is my Bvlgari Aqva Marine Pour Homme Cologne Review! Once again after testing an aquatic fragrance I’m not wowed by it. I loved most of the notes listed in this fragrance but the one note that didn’t excite me was the seaweed note. And sure enough I wasn’t really impressed with Bvlgari Aqva Marine Pour Homme. The one note that I don’t like in fragrances is the seaweed note and this one is seaweed heavy on my skin and comes off pretty awful.

Upon initial spray and on the top notes Bvlgari Aqva Marine Pour Homme smells excellent but it’s the dry down where the seaweed note comes through pretty heavily and strong . And this is where I’m turned off by Bvlgari Aqva Marine Pour Homme. It starts to remind me of Bond No. 9’s Coney Island which I do not like at all. If you are into Aquatic fragrances you might like this one. Check it out if you do! I on the other hand I’m not too happy with it.

Christian Dior Mitzah vs Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan

Christian Dior Mitzah vs Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan

Christian Dior Mitzah and Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan are two beautiful ambers that I enjoy wearing. They both have similarities but loads of differences as well. Unfortunately Mitzah by Christian Dior from the La Collection Privee has been discontinued. So if you’re craving another bottle of Mitzah then look no further as Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan will satisfy just fine.

Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan comes off a bit earthy spicier with the cumin and caraway seed notes in it. Giving it a bit of a BO vibe but it’s an awesome amber fragrance and one of the best. And Mitzah by Christian Dior is a pretty version of an amber with loads of cinnamon and honey. Perfect for cozying up. Mitzah was inspired by Mitzah one of Christian Dior’s muses. To see a full review of Dior’s Mitzah see video after Christian Dior Mitzah VS Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan video.
