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!
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!
Wish Upon A Star by Sebastiane is the fourth fragrance that I sniffed from the collection of Indie fragrances by created by Robert Elder. This one is another grass scent but this has other notes in it like anise and magnolia. This might come off a bit similar to Immortal Meadow but they are slightly bit different. Might sniff both to see which you like better or if you like both get both fragrances. My favorite so far is Espresso Royale and I enjoyed the coffee gourmand qualities of that fragrance along with this and Immortal Meadow.
Last and final video for Black Magic coming up very soon, so stay tuned for that video.
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.
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.
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!!
Annick Goutal Nuit Etoilee one is a classic mint and pine scent and it is perfect for everyday wear. The mint in Annick Goutal Nuit Etoilee is a dried mint and not a fresh mint so the mint comes across like a mint tea. It’s beautiful, fresh and spicy and comes off a bit dark, mysterious and magical. I would wear this to work and use it is perfect for the person that wants to smell great but not make a statement with their fragrance.
If you haven’t tried Annick Goutal then start out with Nuit Etoilee. If you like Cartier Roadster then you will love Annick Goutal Nuit Etoilee!
Sisley Sisley Eau d’Ikar is one of those rare citrus fragrances that’s resinous and powdery at the same time. A very unique fragrance with hints of the Mediterranean all throughout as it utilizes the Mediterranean landscape for the notes that compose this fragrance. This is the second fragrance now from Sisley that’s wowed me and I’m starting to fall in love with this brand.
Sisley Eau d’Ikar is perfect for summer time wear but deep and rich enough to pull off by wearing in the spring and fall too. It’s dominant note is the mastic resin native to the Mediterranean.
