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!!

Valentino has released an excellent fragrance and it’s called Valentino Uomo! The bottle for Valentino Uomo is quite beautiful and the scent is a beautiful almost gourmand warm and sweet scent. I specifically bought Valentino Uomo because of the gift set available at Nordstrom’s. Luckily I had extra gifts that came with my set which made it a lot more appealing to purchase. See the Valentino Uomo Unboxing And First Impressions video here to see which gifts I received with my purchase of the Valentino Uomo gift set.

Perris Monte Carlo Oud Imperial Review


Perris Monte Carlo Oud Imperial Review

Man_Loves_Cologne_Perris_Monte_Carlo_Oud_Imperial

WOW! What an excellent oud fragrance Perris Monte Carlo Oud Imperial is. It smells excellent. This is not a skanky oud although it does have an old musty, church/library type smell but it smells great. it’s big on the woods here and blackwood is the dominant wood note next to the oud so there’s a big earthy thing happening with Oud Imperial. Those of you oud lovers if you haven’t smelled Oud Imperial do so as it’s great. Big and potent. This Oud Imperial is on my to buy list in the near future, perhaps in the fall when the weather turns to cold again.

I would really love to explore Perris Monte Carlo more as I’m currently impressed with Oud Imperial. I tried Rose de Taif which I wasn’t blown away by but will have to try again in the near future as well as their other fragrances like Bois d‘Oud, Musk Extreme, Essence de Patchouli and Ambre Gris. Check out the Perris Monte Carlo house if you get a chance. You might end up liking something! 🙂

Urban Legend by Sebastiane Fragrance Review

Urban Legend by Sebastiane Fragrance Review

This is a complete blind first impressions of Urban Legend by Sebastiane fragrances. I was excited about this fragrance especially since it has orange blossom and ginger. But out of the three fragrances from Sebastiane Perfumes so far this is my least favorite. For some reason the notes didn’t work well for me but who knows this would work much better with someone else.

I’m usually a huge fan of anything orange blossom and I generally love anything with ginger but for some reason these notes along with the vanilla note didn’t work very well with me. It’s a good scent but you don’t end up loving everything you smell and this is one of them. Urban Legend also has a very classic vibe as well. Came off a bit like an older fragrance perhaps the name has something to do with it? Who knows but if you like the notes in this perhaps you should check out Urban Legend by Sebastiane.

Some of my favorite orange blossom and ginger scents are at the link below.

Immortal Meadow by Sebastiane Fragrance Review

Immortal Meadow by Sebastiane Fragrance Review

I chose to review Immortal Meadow second from Sebastian’es fragrances because I liked the notes the most just after Espresso Royale. The notes for Espresso Royale seemed the most exciting to me and I chose to review that first. But Immortal Meadow is all about fruity grass notes fragrance. The fruity notes come from the blackberry in the fragrance. It does start off fruitier and as it dries down it becomes less and less fruity. I like it less fruity as I am not much of a fruity fragrance lover or fan.

I am quickly reminded of Paul Smith for me upon initial spray before it becomes fruity. I enjoyed wearing Paul Smith for men as it was all about green grass a very groundbreaking scent to me when I first bought it. Now I wear Bond No. 9’s High Line and I do love that one. And Immortal Meadow is one I would add to my collection if I want another grassy scent.

Dior Homme Eau Fragrance Review

Dior Homme Eau Fragrance Review

Dior-homme-eau-for-men-review

This is my Dior Homme Eau Fragrance Review. I was very excited about this new fragrance release called Dior Homme Eau by Christian Dior. Since I had just discovered Dior Homme Intense and fell in love with it instantly I had to try and perhaps purchase Dior Homme Eau. Macy’s is marketing the heck out of Dior Homme Eau and each time I entered Macy’s I was approached by the sales associates to try the new Dior Homme Eau. Mind you I don’t shop at Macy’s that frequently but I go in because I use the USPS inside the Macy’s here in San Francisco.

I tried Dior Homme Eau at Macy’s and thought this is pretty similar to Dior Homme Intense which I own or even perhaps a bit more like Dior Homme which I have smelled but do not own. I decided to go ahead and do a purchase of Dior Homme Eau. Unfortunately once I started wearing it I started noticing marine or sea notes come through with this fragrance. And I’m not really a big fan of marine or sea notes in fragrances. The good thing is Dior Homme Eau comes off like a watered down version of the Dior Homme Intense that I have. And every so often you do get those marine notes but the disappointing thing about Dior Homme Eau is that it dries down to a boring everyday average fragrance that you can pick up for cheap at the drugstore. Nothing to write home about here it’s plan Jane. If you have a chance to sniff out the whole line from Dior of the Dior Hommes do so if this is the only Dior Homme flanker you can get then this might do you just fine but I think Dior Homme Intense is the king of the Dior Homme’s in my opinion. The drydown in Dior Homme Eau loses all the iris and becomes this boring old generic fragrance that you can find in a lot of boring generic fragrances. This is nothing to write home about and is a disappointment! 🙁

Jo Malone Earl Grey and Cucumber Cologne Review

Jo Malone Earl Grey and Cucumber Cologne Review

Earl-Grey-Cucumber-Cologne-Review

I was pleasantly surprised with Jo Malone’s Earl Grey & Cucumber cologne. I’m not the type that loves a lot of aquatic type fragrances but this Earl Grey & Cucumber is a winner for me from the Jo Malone brand.

The tea notes, the cucumber and water notes all work perfectly here in Jo Malone Earl Grey & Cucumber. This is a fragrance to wear during the warm months as it has a very refreshing and cooling effect during the warm months. I’ve been a fan of Jo Malone for a while now but lately have not been too excited about the fragrances but this Earl Grey & Cucumber from the Jo Malone Tea Collection is a solid release. This was released in 2011 then shelved then re-released again. If you haven’t smelled Jo Malone Earl Grey and Cucumber I suggest get your nose on it. It smells excellent!

Clive Christian V vs Bond No 9 I Love New York For Marriage Equality

Clive Christian V vs Bond No 9 I Love New York For Marriage Equality

This was an accidental discovery. This is my video for Clive Christian V vs Bond No 9 I Love New York For Marriage Equality. Sniffing Clive Christian’s V and Bond No 9’s I Love New York For Marriage Equality side by side and noticed how similar they are. They both have that smoky incense quality which is what makes me smell the similarities. Both Clive Christian V and Bond No 9 I Love New York For Marriage Equality are very similar but there are some differences as well. One of these is a lot sweeter than the other.

Even though one of these fragrances is 3-4 times more expensive and I’m sure you know which is the more expensive one but if you’re on a budget then you can try the less expensive option and be perfectly satisfied with it and the way it smells. And you know the more expensive option is a much much better quality fragrance but the budget one makes me completely happy without the more expensive option. Find out more by watching Clive Christian V Vs Bond No 9 I Love New York For Marriage Equality video.

Dior Leather Oud from the Dior Priveee Collection is such a complicated and controversial fragrance so I had to really stop and think about it before reviewing this fragrances. It’s very tough to wear also as I have to really think about my whole day before putting it on because I get reactions from folks that are not all positive.

If you do not know about Dior Leather Oud then you must because the dominant note in it is Civet. If you do not know what Civet is then watch video to find out more. If you know Civet you either like it or hate it.
