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!!

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! 🙂

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Ciel De Gum Fragrance Review

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Ciel De Gum Fragrance Review

Ciel De Gum translates to Sky Of Gum!

Ciel de Gum by Maison Francis Kurkdjian was love at first sniff. It was so good I wanted to immediately buy it but I held off for a day and went right back the following day and bought it. I loved how warm and spicy the cinnamon and pink pepper is in the MFK’s Ciel De Gum and how it’s balanced with the vanilla and amber notes. It’s delicious!

Ciel de Gum is exclusively created for the Gum Department Store in Moscow for it’s 120th anniversary so it’s sold in Gum Department Store exclusively or at the Maison Francis Kurkdjian boutique in Paris.

I love picking up rare and exclusive fragrances that are hard to find and get on trips and Ciel De Gum by Maison Francis Kurkdjian was an excellent choice. Anyone try Ciel de Gum? Do let me know.

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!

Tom Ford White Patchouli Fragrance Review

Tom Ford White Patchouli Fragrance Review

Tom Ford’s White Patchouli is one of those masculine women’s targeted fragrances that can be worn by men. It’s a patchouli dominant fragrance with lots of white floral notes. Men don’t be afraid of White Patchouli. I bought it on first sniff at the department store and I wasn’t even aware it was targeted to women. It’s warm and spicy with a heavy dose of patchouli and white flowers with hints of rose and coriander and some woodsy notes. Tom Ford White Patchouli is a pretty potent fragrance and does last all day.

Give Tom Ford White Patchouli a try next time you are in a department store and I would say you will be pleasantly surprised at how great it smells. If you are at all a fan of patchouli you will enjoy wearing White Patchouli by Tom Ford.

Mandarina Duck Pure Black Fragrance Review

Mandarina Duck Pure Black is one of those inexpensive fragrances that’s actually really really good. Mandarina Duck Pure Black smells great it’s and all about the citruses with the gangerine and the sweetness tonka bean as well as some black pepper to add some spiciness. If you’ve tried Ralph Lauren’s Polo Red and wanted it but thought it was too expensive then I would go with Mandarina Duck Pure Black as they are very similar with Mandarina Duck Pure Black being the better fragrance and less expensive of the two fragrances!

For the price at about 35 dollars on amazon you are getting an excellent inexpensive fragrance with Mandarina Duck Pure Black! 🙂 And the bottle is cool looking too!!!


Bond No. 9 Perfumista Avenue Review

Bond No. 9 Perfumista Avenue Review

Bond_No_9_Perfumista_Avenue_Review

Bond No. 9 Perfumista Avenue is a new launch from Bond No. 9. Perfumista Avenue didn’t blow me away at first but it certainly has grown on me on my second and third tries/wearings. It’s another fragrance that has a dominant rose note with a plum and leather thing along with it. At times Bond No. 9 Perfumista Avenue has a powdery thing happening too. This isn’t a big, powerful fragrance, it’s more softer but it does has lasting power.

Give Bond No. 9 Perfumista Avenue a try it actually will grow on you. If you like a nice rose or plum or leather fragrance I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised! Similar to Bond No 9 Perfumes – New York Musk and Bond No. 9 Perfume.

Sisley Eau d’Ikar Fragrance Review

Sisley Eau d’Ikar Fragrance Review

Sisley Eau d’Ikar Fragrance Review

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.
