Scent 8.5
Evento by Roberto Capucci

Evento„Not for The Beatnik Wildsville's Wildman”
Evento Uomo is a contemporary fragrance from Roberto Capucci, released in January 2018 right after l'Homme Suave (aka l'Homme Sauvage). With Evento I happened to feel the same as with Encre Noir... Love at the first sniff! It has a special freshness...

Forever (Eau de Toilette) by Moschino

Forever (Eau de Toilette)„Who Dares to Smell Forever?”
Moschino Forever is nothing but another very good project by Nathalie Lorson, the perfumer I am in love with, who has created countless renowned scents like Bentley for Men, Lalique Encre Noir, Balmain Carbone, Montana Graphite, Armand Basi Wild Forest,...

Ain't no doubt Evento is uncannily akin to Aventus, the name is similar and so does the vibe. Fruity, smoky, leathery, and mossy bargain!+1

It powerfully revolves around three manly notes with the woody, earthy and animalic elements in the foreground: patchouli, vetiver, papyrus.+2

I am a big fan of ZARA Men's scents; however, I do not feel like enjoying this one. It lets me apathetic, showing no interest or enthusiasm.+1

It combines floral and citrus scents with a hint of cedar, musk, vetiver, and spice. It does not stand out initially but it grows in on you.

It's the banned fruit of Eros, it's all about fig, capturing three seasons in a bottle: spring's leaves, summer's fruits, and autumn's tree.+4

Waimea Waimea - Zara   Elysium 34 days ago
Zara Waimea is the Cupid Roman God, comparable to the Versace Eros Greek God. Eerily similar, Waimea is less sweet than Eros, yet awesome!+2

Elysium„​In Pursuit of Missy Spring”
We are nearly close to the middle of March, yet the harsh Winter seems as though it doesn't wanna go away. It is a lazy Sunday evening, the rain is falling for two days now and outward it is pretty cold, yet too cold for the imminent springtime... Ouch, Missy Spring does wanna come later on this year!Notwithstanding, the smell is the most subtle of senses touched by spring. Our sense of smell is, perhaps, the most powerful of all five senses. A particular odor can invoke memories and emotions that...

Hello Elysium, Thank you very much for your reading and your kind comment on my blog article! I myself do not always write affirmatively about a scent if it left negative impression - frustration, incompatibility - especially failed blind purchases w/o testing opportunity, relying on praising reviews by other people; I then try to add my experience hoping to spare anyone else that might repeat the same mistake I did, only because no one else mentioned anything else than positive things. Still, I try to honestly describe and explain why I perceived something differently and what I personally did not like about it (there are few exceptions like some very low quality "dupes" that really just smelt of chemical liquid). I appreciate reviews sharing sincere feelings and thoughts, as you said, (the same for everything else in life) and find that is what makes a review valuable and authentic. With best wishes to you, Anessa

Hi there, seeing ZARA latest Night pour Homme IV EDP for sale gave him a thrill... I look forward to testing it soon!

Albeit winter is not over yet, and the weather is pretty cold these days here in north of Italy, I do feel like spring is in the air. All of my winter scents will go soon in my wardrobe for a while, stored in a dark, cool and dry place, and I am looking forward to bringing the sprint ones back to life. I recently bought quite a few new fragrances I would like to see in action and provide you with my personal and humble opinion!

Have fun scentmates,
Gianluca

Today I am wearing Azzaro Intense, one of my Xmas gifts. During the lunch my friend came close to me, sniffed a bit my neck, and asked "what is that?". I was afraid to ask "why, didn't you like it?". He looked at me and said "it is so damn beautiful! You know, I don't like too much scents, but this... Oh man!"
Getting compliments from another man it so f@king great!
Enjoy your Christmas time.

Man's by Gai Mattiolo, I think I am addicted to this scent. It is so damn manly, musky, intoxicating. warm, and sensual.
I've had many folks remark how nice this cologne is. It is a distinctive mans cologne, quality is very good in this one, and its vibe reminds me of petroleum and floor wax, the good smell of course. Great for night out and intimate situations.
Mostly, I like the final masculine smoky-ambery-herbal virility. I love it, I absolutely love this fragrance. It has something not explainable, a power, it is just...capturing.

I believe that every perfume deserves to be smelled, no matter how much it costs or how famous it is. Then, depending on your mood, nose, and affinity, you might either like it or dislike it.
