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.

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!

Karl Lagerfeld For Him Fragrance Review

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! 🙂

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.

Dior Fahrenheit Le Parfum was a very exciting fragrance purchase for me. It’s a very vanilla dominant and boozy fragrance with the DNA of the original Dior Fahrenheit but with a more comforting delicious take on the original Fahrenheit EDT. Gone are the harsh gasoline and rubber notes that were in the original EDT from the 1980s and now you have a very pleasant potent scent which comes off very syrupy.

After several test wearings of Dior Fahrenheit Le Parfum I’ve come to a conclusion with this fragrance. It’s a great scent as I said but it’s performance is another thing. It’s not great which is a bummer. Find out by watching my Dior Fahrenheit Le Parfum Fragrance Review to see what it’s faults are.

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.

Bond No. 9 I Love New York For Holidays is a solid release from Bond No. 9’s less expensive line. Once spray of I Love New York For Holidays and you are immediately put into the Holiday spirit.

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.
