The Body Shop White Musk vs White Musk Sport

The Body Shop White Musk vs White Musk Sport

I’ve been a huge fan of the Body Shop’s White Musk For Men for sometime now and recently found White Musk Sport For Men at the Body Shop and wanted to give it a try. In the store when I smelled White Musk Sport I liked it. Although it did seem to be a bit on the light side but it had that muskiness of White Musk For Men but with like a citrus lemony thing. So I bought White Musk Sport and brought it home and was excited about having it. And unfortunately White Musk Sport was a complete let down.

White Musk Sport starts out very nice but dries down fast to something very metallic and unpleasant and nothing like White Musk For Men. I couldn’t wait for the metallic note to leave me as it was very sharp. Unfortunately it also doesn’t perform as good as White Musk For Men. White Musk For Men is a cheapie gem for me. It works great, makes me smell excellent and clean and fresh and soapy and I get compliments galore with White Musk For Men. Ladies seem to like this one on me a lot. Not sure why but it’s crazy. I think it’s because it has this very clean and soapy quality which is very nice!!

What are your thoughts about the two??

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! 🙂

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! 🙂

Wish Upon A Star by Sebastiane Fragrance Review

Wish Upon A Star by Sebastiane Fragrance Review

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.

Christian Dior Mitzah vs Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan

Christian Dior Mitzah vs Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan

Christian Dior Mitzah and Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan are two beautiful ambers that I enjoy wearing. They both have similarities but loads of differences as well. Unfortunately Mitzah by Christian Dior from the La Collection Privee has been discontinued. So if you’re craving another bottle of Mitzah then look no further as Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan will satisfy just fine.

Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan comes off a bit earthy spicier with the cumin and caraway seed notes in it. Giving it a bit of a BO vibe but it’s an awesome amber fragrance and one of the best. And Mitzah by Christian Dior is a pretty version of an amber with loads of cinnamon and honey. Perfect for cozying up. Mitzah was inspired by Mitzah one of Christian Dior’s muses. To see a full review of Dior’s Mitzah see video after Christian Dior Mitzah VS Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan video.

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.

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! 🙂

Christian Dior Leather Oud Fragrance Review

Dior_Leather_Oud_Review

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!
