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 Falling Into The Sea Fragrance Review

Imaginary Authors Falling Into The Sea Fragrance Review

Falling Into The Sea is the second fragrance review from the Imaginary Authors collection of fragrances. I thought the notes sounded the second best in this Imaginary Authors collection so I decided to review Falling Into The Sea next.

Falling Into The Sea smells great but it’s not a fragrance I would rush out to get. I’m more into the darker scents so I will stick to Bulls Blood for now even thous Falling Into The Sea smells nice. It’s a great composition of citrus notes like grapefruit, lemon and bergamot along with lychee fruit notes along with exotic tropical flower note and warm sand.

Falling Into The Sea is a unique fresh scent. Check it out from Imaginary Authors.

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!

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! 🙂

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

Man_Loves_Cologne_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.
