The Body Shop White Musk vs White Musk Sport

The Body Shop White Musk vs White Musk Sport

I’ve been a huge fan of the Body Shop’s White Musk For Men for sometime now and recently found White Musk Sport For Men at the Body Shop and wanted to give it a try. In the store when I smelled White Musk Sport I liked it. Although it did seem to be a bit on the light side but it had that muskiness of White Musk For Men but with like a citrus lemony thing. So I bought White Musk Sport and brought it home and was excited about having it. And unfortunately White Musk Sport was a complete let down.

White Musk Sport starts out very nice but dries down fast to something very metallic and unpleasant and nothing like White Musk For Men. I couldn’t wait for the metallic note to leave me as it was very sharp. Unfortunately it also doesn’t perform as good as White Musk For Men. White Musk For Men is a cheapie gem for me. It works great, makes me smell excellent and clean and fresh and soapy and I get compliments galore with White Musk For Men. Ladies seem to like this one on me a lot. Not sure why but it’s crazy. I think it’s because it has this very clean and soapy quality which is very nice!!

What are your thoughts about the two??

Annick Goutal Eau d’Hadrien Fragrance Review

Annick Goutal’s Eau D’Hadrien is one of my favorite citrus fragrances ever. This is a classic citrus aromatic fragrance launched in the early 1980s that still smells fresh today. The Annick Goutal house is the underrated niche fragrance house that needs to be discovered and I found it necessary to finally review this masterpiece fragrance since summer is just around the corner.

For anyone into the way lemons, sharp tart juicy lemons smell like then they would be very happy with Eau d’Hadrien because it’s like being served lemon juice or lemonade in a bottle. This isn’t a sweet lemon it’s pretty sour, tart but very refreshing. Those of you that live in hot, humid climates then Eau d’Dadrien is going to be perfect for you. Check it out. Annick Goutal fragrances if unisex come in two types of bottles. Eau d’Hadrien is a unisex scent so the EDT comes in a men’s bottle and ladies bottle. The EDP which is what I’m reviewing here only comes in a ladies bottle. But the scent is the same just a heavier version in the EDP.

I love Eau d’Hadrien and will continue to wear this masterpiece.

Eau de Cartier – Zeste De Soleil Fragrance Review

Eau de Cartier – Zeste De Soleil Fragrance Review

Cartier’s Eau de Cartier – Zeste de Soleil is an excellent spring summer fragrance that was released late last fall. It’s a citrus dominant fragrance utilizing yuzu, the Japanese grapefruit with the signature mint used in Cartier’s Roadster as well as passion fruit. It’s not a very busy fragrance with lots of notes but it’s a perfect grapefruit dominant scent that I absolutely love. If I hadn’t received such a nice big size of Zeste de Soleil I would be rushing out to buy this one as I would put it to use a lot this spring during the warmer days and of course the warm days of summer.

Those of you looking for a new grapefruit fragrance do check out Cartier Eau de Cartier – Zeste de Soleil as it’s definitely an excellent scent worthy of adding to any spring and summer fragrance collection. And it’s a great deal on amazon for $85 dollars!

Imaginary Authors Cape Heartache Fragrance Review

Imaginary Authors Cape Heartache Fragrance Review

I was very excited about the notes for Cape Heartache and I was right. I love anything with pine, cedar or anything foresty smelling. Woods, green, leaves, dried plants, dead trees, musty old forest. I love it. The only thing I was worried about Cape Heartache was the strawberry note I thought would clash but it’s surprisingly great here. So far I’m quite impressed with the Imaginary Authors collection of fragrances composed by Josh Meyer. What do you think of Cape Heartache? The Imaginary Author is Philip Sava who also has another novel called Memoirs Of A Trespasser. I will review Memoirs Of A Trespasser soon!

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!

Karl Lagerfeld For Him Fragrance Review

Karl Lagerfeld For Him Fragrance Review

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!
