Tribute by Amouage

TributeTobacco Rose
I was thrilled to be able to sample Amouage Tribute Attar, but when I first applied it, my heart sank. Tobacco, tobacco, and more tobacco, with just a hint of Taif rose peeking through. I was so disappointed. But then... A waft of incense, and the Taif...

Mandragore by Goutal / Annick Goutal

MandragoreA piquant citrus refresher
This is a simple yet winning fragrance. It opens with the distinctive citrus scent of bergamot, but with pepper. Later, it shifts to a minty lemon, with the pepper remaining close to the skin, and the ginger and anise get a chance...

Boyfriend by Kate Walsh

BoyfriendIf only all boyfriends--and girlfriends--smelled like this!
When I first tested Kate Walsh Boyfriend, courtesy of a manufacturer's sample provided by one of my online shopping emporia, I was pretty sure that it would be at best meh, at worst a scrubber. How wrong...

Les Exclusifs de Chanel - Cuir de Russie (2007) (Eau de Toilette) by Chanel

Les Exclusifs de Chanel - Cuir de Russie (2007) (Eau de Toilette)Sophisticated Leather Floral
Cuir de Russie is a beautiful leather floral. The aldehyde and citrus opening is typically Chanel, with bergamot most prominent. The jasmine and rose are most noticeable after the first brief minutes. I perceived the leather quite...

Iris silver mist by Serge Lutens

Iris silver mistCold Iris
This is an astonishing fragrance. The opening is a bit carroty, but then it is pure iris. The proudest one in your garden, standing alone. Despite the wet earth clinging to it, the iris is disconsolate and lonely, but the iris would never admit to such...

Les Exclusifs de Chanel - Bois des Îles (2007) (Eau de Toilette) by Chanel

Les Exclusifs de Chanel - Bois des Îles (2007) (Eau de Toilette)Swanky sandalwood
Bois des Iles is swanky! You can tell it is a Chanel right away, because of the slightly citrusy and very aldehydic opening, typically Chanel. The heart is floral, and I detect iris and jasmine most prominently, but they pass rather quickly, and Bois...

Liaisons Dangereuses by Kilian

Liaisons DangereusesPseudo-hyacinth opening; Unsweetened plum drydown
I am fascinated by the range of responses to By Killian Liaisons Dangereuses. Some people find this composition very sweet, even too sweet, while others not at all. My own idiosyncratic experience consistently involves...

Absolutely Irrésistible Givenchy by Givenchy

Absolutely Irrésistible GivenchyIt's true: absolutely irresistible
Absolutely Irresistible is deliciously good. This fragrance opens with a scent that can only be described as a big, zesty, juicy, realistic mandarin orange. I love, (I can't say that word enough), how Givenchy has created a fruity...

Red Door Revealed by Elizabeth Arden

Red Door RevealedA much tamer version of Red Door
I rather like Red Door Revealed. In my opinion, it's like a younger version of the original Red Door, something that a young woman can wear without smelling ghastly or too grown up. Red Door Revealed opens with some subtle fruitiness,...

Only The Brave (Eau de Toilette) by Diesel

Only The Brave (Eau de Toilette)Not so brave nor attractive
Very rarely do I dislike a male fragrance. Unfortunately this fragrance was the first masculine scent that disappointed me. The first thing I thought when I tried Only The Brave, was that it smelt rather bland and boring. It certainly...
