Imaginary Authors Cape Heartache Fragrance Review

Imaginary Authors Cape Heartache Fragrance Review

I was very excited about the notes for Cape Heartache and I was right. I love anything with pine, cedar or anything foresty smelling. Woods, green, leaves, dried plants, dead trees, musty old forest. I love it. The only thing I was worried about Cape Heartache was the strawberry note I thought would clash but it’s surprisingly great here. So far I’m quite impressed with the Imaginary Authors collection of fragrances composed by Josh Meyer. What do you think of Cape Heartache? The Imaginary Author is Philip Sava who also has another novel called Memoirs Of A Trespasser. I will review Memoirs Of A Trespasser soon!

Hermes Voyage d’Hermes Parfum Review

Hermes Voyage D Hermes Parfum Review

I was very intrigued with the Hermes Voyage d’Hermes fragrance concept the bottle that is but I wanted something potent so when the EDP was launched late 2012 I wanted to take a sniff and see how it was. I loved it immediately and I loved that it was a very fresh and spicy and man the cardamom is king in this fragrance. Those of you that love cardamom in your perfumes and fragrances and colognes should take note here. This is an Hermes fragrance after all so it’s going to be very fresh but with that spiciness from the cardamom.

With spring and summer just around the corner Hermes Voyage d’Hermes Parfum is going to be one of those fresh spicy scents that I’m going to be pulling for. It’s excellent and works pretty nicely. It has decent longevity and performance for a fresh scent. If you don’t know about Hermes Voyage d’Hermes Parfum check it out I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how great it smells!!

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.

Tom Ford White Patchouli Fragrance Review

Tom Ford White Patchouli Fragrance Review

Tom Ford’s White Patchouli is one of those masculine women’s targeted fragrances that can be worn by men. It’s a patchouli dominant fragrance with lots of white floral notes. Men don’t be afraid of White Patchouli. I bought it on first sniff at the department store and I wasn’t even aware it was targeted to women. It’s warm and spicy with a heavy dose of patchouli and white flowers with hints of rose and coriander and some woodsy notes. Tom Ford White Patchouli is a pretty potent fragrance and does last all day.

Give Tom Ford White Patchouli a try next time you are in a department store and I would say you will be pleasantly surprised at how great it smells. If you are at all a fan of patchouli you will enjoy wearing White Patchouli by Tom Ford.
