Christian Dior Leather Oud Review With Special Guest Coco!!

Christian Dior Leather Oud Review With Special Guest Coco!!

Christian Dior Leather Oud is a very challenging fragrance to wear. Every time I have someone smell it they react to it very interestingly. So I decided to get my friend Coco on camera to experience the wonderful and very challenging perfume Leather Oud by Christian Dior. Watch to see how Coco reacts to Christian Dior’s Leather Oud.

I myself rarely pull for Leather Oud anymore. My nose appreciates animalic scents but I find it very very difficult to wear Leather Oud. I usually prefer scents that are pleasant and I really do appreciate Leather Oud but as mentioned find it very difficult to wear.

Like a pendulum swinging my nose will appreciate it again sometime soon and sooner than later I will pull for the big boy Leather Oud to wear. But for now it’s always fun to watch how people react to Christian Dior’s Leather Oud from the Privee Collection of perfumes!!!

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

Jovan Intense Oud Fragrance Review

Jovan Intense Oud Fragrance Review

How about an oud fragrance that smells great and only costs 10 bucks? Well I found it and it’s called Intense Oud by Jovan. Jovan has been making some excellent inexpensive fragrances since the 70s and they have released a gem of a fragrance now with Intense Oud along with 2 other fragrances as part of their Oriental inspired collection of fragrances which also includes Secret Amber and Silky Rose.

Those of you that thought about getting into the oud world of fragrances but found oud perfumes to be too expensive then this is the one you need to try. It’s a very nice oud and inexpensive. Jovan Intense Oud reminds me of other more expensive oud fragrances by the very popular niche brands like By Kilian and Maison Francis Kurkdjian and even others. What you get with Intense Oud is a quality fragrance that could be bottled in a more expensive fragrance brands fragrances and sold for a lot more. Except that it’s only 10 dollars. Such a steal this is and I highly recommend it!!

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! 🙂

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!

Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Collection Tender Oud And Desert Oud Review

Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Collection Tender Oud And Desert Oud Review

Dolce & Gabbana’s Velvet Collection fragrances Velvet Tender Oud and Velvet Desert Oud are pleasantly surprising in scent and quality. I loved them upon first sniff and they are excellent perfumes. But when you have your fragrance wardrobe full of oud fragrances and rose and oud combo perfumes are these two worth adding to your collection?

Velvet Tender Oud and Velvet Desert Oud smell excellent as I mentioned it already and perhaps they are worth owning if you don’t have any other similar fragrances or perfumes in your collection but if you do I think you better think twice.

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.

Tom Ford Oud Fleur Review – My First Impressions ReReview

Tom Ford Oud Fleur Review – My First Impressions ReReview

Tom_Ford_Oud_Fleur_Fragrance_Review

This is a rereview of Tom Ford’s Oud Fleur. Why am I reviewing this fragrance again you ask? Because of the mistake made by the store that gave me the samples. Not sure why this would even happen but the store had marked Oud Fleur and Oud Wood in reverse. And what the associate gave me was Oud Wood thinking it was Oud Fleur. What I sniffed was Oud Wood not Oud Fleur. So a rereview is in order for sure.

Find out what I think of Oud Fleur now? Do I love it? Or do I not like it? Watch my video! 🙂

Dior Leather Oud from the Dior Priveee Collection is such a complicated and controversial fragrance so I had to really stop and think about it before reviewing this fragrances. It’s very tough to wear also as I have to really think about my whole day before putting it on because I get reactions from folks that are not all positive.

If you do not know about Dior Leather Oud then you must because the dominant note in it is Civet. If you do not know what Civet is then watch video to find out more. If you know Civet you either like it or hate it.

What do I think about Dior Leather Oud? Watch video to find out. For a quality fragrance Dior Leather Oud rocks it’s one of the best but smell wise??? Watch to find out now!

Tom Ford Oud Fleur Fragrance Review

Tom Ford Oud Fleur Fragrance Review – My First Impressions

Tom_Ford_Oud_Fleur_Fragrance_Review

This new Tom Ford Oud Fleur release is nice. For someone that hasn’t smelled Oud Wood they might find this very unique but it underperforms for me as it’s very very similar to Oud Wood with just a a slight added rose note thrown in for mixing things up a bit. And when I say slight I really mean slight. I hardly get that rose note. Where is it?

Oud Wood does not perform very well on my skin and personally with my first impression I think this might do the same as it’s very similar to Oud Wood. I haven’t tested out the new Oud Wood relaunch or rerelease but from what I’ve heard the new Oud Wood is very similar to the old Oud Wood.

Tom Ford Tobacco Oud Review

Tom-Ford-Tobacco-Oud-Fragrance-Review

Another excellent fragrance release from the Tom Ford Private Blend fragrance collection. What does Tom Ford Tobacco Oud smell like? We’ve heard of comparisons to Tom Ford Amber Absolute from his Private Blend collection as well as Tom Ford Sahara Noir from his signature collection. This is definitely an amber dominant fragrance and the oud is there hidden with big does of tobacco, ashy, dirty tobacco with incense characteristics! To me this is an excellent fragrance for someone that loves amber based fragrances. For the lover of tobacco in fragrances Tom Ford Tobacco Oud is perfect for you. If you’re into smokey, incense based fragrances then Tom Ford Tobacco Oud will be perfect for you.
