Néroli Oranger - Matière Première

Néroli Oranger That one uplifting friend that will never let you go
Love fresh summer scents, but bored of Neroli Portofino and your Aqua di Parmas? Here's your next perfume for life! In short: simply a-ma-zing creamy fresh and dry neroli that lasts unexpectedly long on skin....

Park Avenue South - Bond No. 9

Park Avenue South Bond number 'no'
Opening with the most synthetic of synthetic apples I've come across in my fragrance journey, this is not the most pleasant of perfumes. It feels cheap from the start and lacks the depth and complexity we've grown accustomed to with these niche...

Another light, young, happy floral on a musky base with moderate sillage like many more from Zara. A synthetic easy grab.

Very uninspiring, bittersweet fruity mess with a cheap amberwoody base like so many others. Another Invictus from the same house.
Fresh luxury laundry and very expensive sun screen lotion. This is lavish tropical flowers and a cool breeze over hot white sandy beaches

Not worthy a full review. Super synthetic pink roses, which overpower anything else put in this fragrance, even the weird sour heart note

The sillage is the best part of this fragrance. Plastic smell all round. Super synthetic, scratchy woods and musk, and a piercing fake rose

Poor man's rose oudh wrapped in plastic, with spices from the back of the cupboard. This should not be a perfume. So synthetic it hurts.

I honestly gagged! Skittles-esque opening with animalic, terribly synthetic oud and a tiny splash of cheap rose. Ambroxan cant save this one
Icon Icon - Dunhill - 1 year ago

Sprayable cozy warmth. Pine, resins, leather, sweet port wine, soft tobacco note, woods; it's all there. The invisible onesie everyone needs

Incredible! The greenest of luscious greens, infused with the most succulent indolic sweetness of ripe figs. Smells refreshingly niche.
