L’Artisan Parfumeur Tea For Two Review

L’Artisan Parfumeur Tea For Two Review

I finally got the chance to review this beauty of a fragrance from L’Artisan Parfumeur. I brought my two bottles of Tea For Two from Paris last January. It was on a discount shelf. I love it and have been falling in love with this scent even more and more every time I wear it. This is the discontinued gem that everyone who put their nose on fell in love with.

Good news is that Tea For Two is being rereleased by L’Artisan Parfumeur! WooHoo! This stuff is so good I’d say get in line first to purchase it. It’s a classy fragrance from the master perfumer Olivia Giacobetti!! Delicious tea based fragrance that is going to delight anyone who loves a smoky, spicy, tea fragrance with gourmand touches. The only reason this one is getting a rerelease is because of the popularity it had and folks asking for it to come back so it is. This is one of my favorite comforting scents ever. Do please check it out.

Charenton Macerations Christopher Street Review

Charenton Macerations Christopher Street Review

Charenton Macerations Christopher Street is a beautiful leather fragrance which reminds me of some of the powerfhouses from the 80s but in a more updated, refined, modern interpretation version of it.

Charenton Macerations Christopher Street is big and bold but not loud and obnoxious. It’s a unisex leather fragrance that will wow us men and satisfy the ladies as well.

Just in time for fall and winter fragrance wear time I think Charenton Macerations Christopher Street will be perfect for the cooler months. Christopher Street is perfectly named after the famous street in New York City. Please check out Christopher Street and you’ll enjoy this excellent indie release by Charenton Macerations.

As always please watch, subscribe, like, comment and share this video with everyone you can. Thank you!!

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! 🙂

Costume National Homme Fragrance Review

Costume National Homme Fragrance Review

This is a Woody Aromatic fragrance with dominant notes of cinnamon and cloves with patchouli and sandalwood and citruses. It’s one of the best designer fragrances I have purchased for a long long time and Costume National Homme is niche quality and could easily be worth double what it’s selling for.

Seriously the nose behind Costume National Homme is Dominique Ropion who is the nose behind Portrait Of A Lady by Frederic Malle and you can see some similarities with the two dominant notes of both fragrances, cinnamon and cloves. But it does stop there as both fragrances take on a life of their own.

If you’ve been wanting to check out Costume National Homme then now is the time as this is an excellent fragrance and would be perfect to wear in the fall and winter! Thanks for watching.

Parfums De Marly Herod Unboxing and First Impressions

Parfums De Marly Herod Unboxing and First Impressions

This is just a quick video showing the Parfums de Marly Herod unboxing. With a surprise gift from Parfums de Marly. I was’t expecting that gift and it’s quite unusual to receive a gift like that from a perfume brand!!

Herod is quite an awesome scent. Tobacco is becoming one of my favorite notes as of late and Herod has totally blown me away with how great it smells. It’s one of the best tobacco dominant colognes/fragrances that I’ve ever put my nose to. It smells great. Parfums de Marly can easily be one of the best tobacco dominant scents ever. Believe me it’s quite amazing!!

I’m curious now to try more from Parfums de Marly as I’m blown away by Herod. This is of course Olivier Pesheux who is known for a lot of Diptyque fragrances and of course the infamous One Million by Paco Rabanne.

Xerjoff Casamorati Lira 1888 Unboxing And First Impressions

Xerjoff Casamorati Lira 1888 Unboxing And First Impressions

This is my very first bottle of one of the most expensive fragrances I have ever bought and so far so good. Well I’m very very impressed with Xerjoff fragrances so far. The packaging is awesome. The bottle rocks even though it’s a bit gaudy! Lira smells great, I love it. I’m like a kid in a candy shop here and opening up a fragrances that I’ve been anticipating for a long time. And this Xerjoff literally smells like candy, sweets so it was a perfect unboxing. Watch the video to find out more.

Histoires De Parfums Moulin Rouge Fragrance Review

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!

Hermes Ambre Narguile VS Bois 1920 Sushi Imperiale

Hermes Ambre Narguile VS Bois 1920 Sushi Imperiale

There are a lot of similarities between Hermes Ambre Narguile versus Bois 1920 Sushi Imperiale. But when you wear the two side by side even though they smell very similar there are lots of differences between the two.

I’m a huge fan of both Ambre Narguile by Hermes from the Hermessence collction of exclusive fragrances that you can only get at the Hermes boutiques and Bois 1920 Sushi Imperiale. Both are great to wear in cooler weather and are perfect scents to wear during the holidays. I tend to get a lot of compliments from wearing these scents especially since you’re close to family and friends and everyone seems to smell the fragrance on you. If you haven’t tried either of these fragrances then you should give them a try as they are excellent gourmand scents.

Find out what Ambre Narguile and Sushi Imperiale have and not have in common by watching this video!

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.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian – Lumiere Noire Fragrance Review

Maison Francis Kurkdjian – Lumiere Noire Fragrance Review

Maison Francis Kurkdjian – Lumiere Noire Pour Homme is one of those rare fragrances with a dominant rose and patchouli note that’s perfect for everyday wear. Lumiere Noire is a fresh spicy rose and patchouli dominant fragrance that I love to wear. It smells clean and lasts a long time but this is not a beast. It’s soft, warm, sophisticated and classy for everyday wear.

If you don’t like rose in scents you will like the rose in Lumiere Noire Pour Homme. If you don’t like patchouli in scents you will like the patchouli in Lumiere Noire.
