Bentley For Men Intense Review

Bentley For Men Intense Review

Bentley For Men Intense is a boozy, ambery classy men’s fragrance with a budget price tag. It smells masculine and lasts a long time and is better suited for cooler months or evenings and formal occasions. Well it’s perfect for office settings too but go easy on the trigger with this one as it lasts a long time.

If you’ve smelled a fragrance called Idole by Lubin you will find similarities with these two fragrances although the similarities were more present with Idole EDT rather than EDP which is only available currently but either way both fragrances have a rum dominant note that’s very intoxicating. Bentley For Men Intense is a fragrance that’s a great deal and full bottle worthy!

Ralph Lauren Supreme Oud Review

Ralph Lauren Supreme Oud Review

A great smelling, short life oud fragrance from a designer house by the name of Ralph Lauren. A bit late in the game for Oud fragrances here but as I said it smells great. I just wished it lasted longer than the 2/3 hours I sprayed it on. If you think of Tom Ford Oud Wood with a little bit of cinnamon spices then this is Ralph Laurent Supreme Oud. It’s an EDP concentration.

Tauerville Vanilla Flash First Impressions

Tauerville Vanilla Flash First Impressions

Tauerville Vanilla Flash Review, my first impressions of this wonderful boozy vanilla fragrance with Andy Tauer himself. I think Andy Tauer has given us another winner of a fragrance here and what a deal it is too, $63 dollars for a EDP concentration in a 30ml bottle. Wonderful stuff for sure, I really do love Vanilla Flash and continue to wear it over and over again. Please check out Vanilla Flash and Rose Flash by Tauerville Perfumes or Tauer Perfumes from Andy Tauer!

Canvas & Concrete Fragrance Primer Review

Canvas & Concrete Fragrance Primer Review

Canvas & Concrete Fragrance Primer Review. Canvas & Concrete Fragrance Primer is one of the most unique products I have ever found. It literally makes your fragrances, cologne or perfume last much longer. Plus it doesn’t mix in with your body chemistry or your own funk and makes the fragrance smell like what it’s supposed to smell like not mixed with your funk.

When I first heard about Canvas & Concrete I was a bit skeptical but for 20 dollars I was willing to take the chance. So I tried it and it really does extend the life of your fragrances. This product works better with fragrances that you really love but have poor performance. Or if a fragrance smells differently on you compared to when sprayed on a strip.

Try Canvas & Concrete Fragrance Primer and you’ll see the difference!!

Top 5 Vetiver Fragrances

Top 5 Vetiver Fragrances

Here’s a list of my current Top 5 Vetiver Fragrances with an honorable mention and a couple of vetiver based products you can use with your vetiver fragrances such as Lucky Tiger Deodorant and Aesop Deodorant. I’ve been a huge fan of vetiver based fragrances but started with of course the most infamous of vetiver fragrances and that is Guerlain’s Vetiver. I have worn this one since the late 90s and have thoroughly enjoyed wearing vetiver as a fragrance. Vetiver is basically a perennial grass that is native to India. A lot of vetiver is farmed in places like Hait, India, Java and Reunion.

Top 15 Cheap Fragrance, Cologne Blind Buys

Top 15 Cheap Fragrance, Cologne Blind Buys

This is my video with a list of 15 best cheap, fragrance, cologne blind buys! I blind bought everyone single one of these fragrances and they are all proven excellent fragrances I highly recommend for the budget conscious fragrance collector or someone who is just starting the fragrance hobby of buying and collecting and wearing fragrances.

A lot of the fragrances in this collection are from smaller houses or some are even niche brands but all are excellent scents and most perform awesomely. Most of these fragrances were cheap when purchased and all should still be inexpensive. As prices do fluctuate because of the supply and demand I can’t guarantee that all of these fragrances will still be cheap but most likely most of these colognes will be inexpensive enough to have in your collection.

Thierry Mugler A*Men Ultra Zest Review

Thierry Mugler A*Men Ultra Zest Review

Here’s a video about the latest Thierry Mugler release A*Men Ultra Zest. This is certainly perfect timing for a fresh orange dominant release for spring. It’s a bit bigger and bolder than Pure Wood and performance is also better.

I originally wondered about this type of a release. Oranges with the Mugler A*Men DNA but then once I received it I was happy with it. I like the orange cream soda type accord with this fragrance and love the way it smells.

There’s one disappointing factor with this fragrance and only one the drydown. Please watch to find out.

Xerjoff Lira vs Laurence Dumont Tendre Madeleine

Xerjoff Lira vs Laurence Dumont Tendre Madeleine

I’ve been a huge fan of gourmand fragrances and am always searching for the best gourmand fragrance finds. I found Laurence Dumont Tendre Madeleine by a suggestion of someone and ended up buying it. I loved it. It is a true fragrance of baked madeleines. Yummy stuff!!

When I bought Xerjoff Casamorati Lira I didn’t know anything about it. It was a very expensive blind buy. Almost 300 dollars. That’s a shocker of a price for a 75ml bottle. I received it and I was like I already have this fragrance. It’s called Tendre Madeleine. So please watch the rest to find out what I think about Xerjoff Lira vs Laurence Dumont Tendre Madeleine!
