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.

As always please watch, subscribe, rate, comment and share this video. Thank you so much and stay tuned for more videos very soon!!!

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.

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!!

If you like Roadster think it with roses added. That’s how I feel Cartier Declaration d’Un Soir is. The DNA of Cartier fragrances is in Cartier Declaration d’Un Soir. I’m loving Cartier Declaration d’Un Soir! 🙂

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.

Bois_1920_Sushi_Imperiale_Fragrance_Review

 

Bois 1920 Sushi Imperiale is the holidays in a bottle. It’s a very comforting, relaxing fragrance with a dominant note of cinnamon! At times I get a very apple pie type of a vibe and at other times I get an apple cider type of a vibe so apple is king with this one. It smells excellent and perfect for fall and winter.

Just imagine wearing this excellent gourmand like fragrance for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners and smelling great. People around will get a whiff of your scent and be wondering what it is! If you haven’t smelled Sushi Imperiale yet do so soon. You’ll fall in love with this smooth, relaxing somewhat boozy fragrance.

Sushi Imperiale is my first Bois 1920 fragrance and I’m hooked now and want to explore more from this brand.
