I finally got the chance to review this beauty of a fragrance from L’Artisan Parfumeur. I brought my two bottles of Tea For Two from Paris last January. It was on a discount shelf. I love it and have been falling in love with this scent even more and more every time I wear it. This is the discontinued gem that everyone who put their nose on fell in love with.
Good news is that Tea For Two is being rereleased by L’Artisan Parfumeur! WooHoo! This stuff is so good I’d say get in line first to purchase it. It’s a classy fragrance from the master perfumer Olivia Giacobetti!! Delicious tea based fragrance that is going to delight anyone who loves a smoky, spicy, tea fragrance with gourmand touches. The only reason this one is getting a rerelease is because of the popularity it had and folks asking for it to come back so it is. This is one of my favorite comforting scents ever. Do please check it out.

This is my Thierry Mugler Pure Wood Fragrance Review! I was so excited that there was going to be a new A*Men flanker by Thierry Mugler. So I was anticipating the release and finally I received a small mini decant or mini bottle. This video is my first impressions of Thiery Mugler Pure Wood.
Did I love Pure Wood? Did I hate Pure Wood? What did I think of Pure Wood?
Valentino has released an excellent fragrance and it’s called Valentino Uomo! The bottle for Valentino Uomo is quite beautiful and the scent is a beautiful almost gourmand warm and sweet scent. I specifically bought Valentino Uomo because of the gift set available at Nordstrom’s. Luckily I had extra gifts that came with my set which made it a lot more appealing to purchase. See the Valentino Uomo Unboxing And First Impressions video here to see which gifts I received with my purchase of the Valentino Uomo gift set.
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! 🙂
Parfums De Marly Herod Unboxing and First Impressions
This is just a quick video showing the Parfums de Marly Herod unboxing. With a surprise gift from Parfums de Marly. I was’t expecting that gift and it’s quite unusual to receive a gift like that from a perfume brand!!
Herod is quite an awesome scent. Tobacco is becoming one of my favorite notes as of late and Herod has totally blown me away with how great it smells. It’s one of the best tobacco dominant colognes/fragrances that I’ve ever put my nose to. It smells great. Parfums de Marly can easily be one of the best tobacco dominant scents ever. Believe me it’s quite amazing!!
I’m curious now to try more from Parfums de Marly as I’m blown away by Herod. This is of course Olivier Pesheux who is known for a lot of Diptyque fragrances and of course the infamous One Million by Paco Rabanne.
Xerjoff Casamorati Lira 1888 Unboxing And First Impressions
This is my very first bottle of one of the most expensive fragrances I have ever bought and so far so good. Well I’m very very impressed with Xerjoff fragrances so far. The packaging is awesome. The bottle rocks even though it’s a bit gaudy! Lira smells great, I love it. I’m like a kid in a candy shop here and opening up a fragrances that I’ve been anticipating for a long time. And this Xerjoff literally smells like candy, sweets so it was a perfect unboxing. Watch the video to find out more.
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!!
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.
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.
I loved the name of Espresso Royale by Sebastiane and I wanted to sniff it as soon as I learned about it. And what I sniffed was an excellent coffee dominant gourmand fragrance and very high quality for an indie niche perfume.
Anyone into fragrances like New Haarlem by Bond No 9 or Intense Cafe by Montale or even fragrances like Pure Coffe by Thierry Mugler (which I never got the pleasure to sniff) should check out Espresso Royale by Sebastiane. It’s definitely a winner in my book and who knows I might just end up getting a bottle of Espresso Royale.
