Charenton Macerations Christopher Street Review

Charenton Macerations Christopher Street Review

Charenton Macerations Christopher Street is a beautiful leather fragrance which reminds me of some of the powerfhouses from the 80s but in a more updated, refined, modern interpretation version of it.

Charenton Macerations Christopher Street is big and bold but not loud and obnoxious. It’s a unisex leather fragrance that will wow us men and satisfy the ladies as well.

Just in time for fall and winter fragrance wear time I think Charenton Macerations Christopher Street will be perfect for the cooler months. Christopher Street is perfectly named after the famous street in New York City. Please check out Christopher Street and you’ll enjoy this excellent indie release by Charenton Macerations.

As always please watch, subscribe, like, comment and share this video with everyone you can. Thank you!!

Jacques Bogart Bogart Pour Homme Fragrance Review

Jacques Bogart Bogart Pour Homme Fragrance Review

Jacques Bogart Bogart Pour Homme was a late discovery for me. It was released in 2004 and was composed by the well known nose Maurice Roucel along with Norbert Bijaoui. Those of you that have heard of Maurice Roucel will know that he’s got some very popular fragrances under his belt like Frederic Malle’s Musc Ravageur and Nautica’s Voyage among many other popular fragrances. So when I discovered this fragrance I knew it was going to be great. So when I received it I was immediately blown away by how great it is.

Jacques Bogart Bogart Pour Homme is a big barbershoppy style fragrance with a big dominant note of Tonka Bean. So you get patchouli, lavender and the tonka bean sweetens this fragrance up a bit. Jacques Bogart Bogart Pour Homme has excellent performance with awesome longevity and big projection. And for 20 dollars it’s a steal. Try this fragrance now you wont be disappointed.

Von Eusersdorff Classic Patchouli Fragrance Review

Von Eusersdorff Classic Patchouli Fragrance Review

Buy Classic Patchouli here: http://www.voneusersdorff.com/

This is my review of Von Eusersdorff Classic Patchouli an Oriental Woody fragrance with a big dominant patchouli note. That’s why this fragrance was called Classic Patchouli. Those of you into the patchouli note will love this one. It’s big, bold and all about a creamy, almost chocolately patchouli. Long lasting as well.

This is my first sniff of a Von Eusersdorff fragrance and I’m pleasantly surprised at how great this is. I’m looking forward to trying more by Von Eusersdorff including Classic Vetiver, Classic Orange, Classic Myrrh and Classic Mimosa.

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!

Imaginary Authors Bull’s Blood Fragrance Review

Imaginary Authors Bull’s Blood Fragrance Review

Once again I’m exploring an indie house and this time it’s Imaginary Authors! I wanted to start out with Bull’s Blood first as Bull’s Blood seemed like the most intriguing of the notes in all of the fragrances I received from Josh Meyer the nose and owner behind Bull’s Blood.

I’m actually pleasantly surprised at how great Bull’s Blood is by Imaginary Authors! It’s a great scent to start my exploration of the Imaginary Authors! And you know me I’m a huge fan of Rose and Patchouli in fragrances and this one is all about that but with a lot of musk and some leather or suede or material/cloth of some kind in the mix. It’s great. At times I get hints of Musk Oud from By Kilian. Overall a great scent. Check it out if you haven’t and stay tuned for more First Impression reviews of Imaginary Authors fragrances!!

Histoires De Parfums Moulin Rouge Fragrance Review

Histoires De Parfums Moulin Rouge Fragrance Review

I love everything about Moulin Rouge and I enjoy wearing this powdery, fresh fragrance. Days that I want something simple I grab for Moulin Rouge from Histoires De Parfums. I know that some men might find Moulin Rouge a bit challenging to wear as it does come off feminine but once you get past that you might enjoy it. Just think of the powdery qualities of Dior Homme Intense? Histoires de Parfums Moulin Rouge has the same dominant iris note that’s in Dior Homme Intense but they both go into different directions.

Histoires de Parfums Moulin Rouge 1189 captures the Moulin Rouge in a bottle. Just give it a sniff you’ll see what I mean!

Black Magic by Sebastiane Fragrance Review

Black Magic by Sebastiane Fragrance Review

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!

Urban Legend by Sebastiane Fragrance Review

Urban Legend by Sebastiane Fragrance Review

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.

Immortal Meadow by Sebastiane Fragrance Review

Immortal Meadow by Sebastiane Fragrance Review

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.
