Alcott by Alcott

Alcott„The Fierce Intense Knock-Off is Here”
Alcott for men is a little gem, sold for 15.99 euro here in Italy, and occasionally at 11.99 euro during the Black Friday. It is an EDP, excellent value for that price... anyway, what about the scent, what is the smell? When I saw it in Alcott...

Grigioperla Uomo (Eau de Toilette) by La Perla

Grigioperla Uomo (Eau de Toilette)„Grigioperla for the Modern Gentleman”
Grigioperla Uomo is my most recent buy from La Perla, still remembering how gorgeous was the first Grigioperla I bought in 1991. Together with the scent bottle, I got a quite big miniature made of metal, which I should still have stored somewhere...

Quite possibly one of the greatest cheap fragrances I've ever smelled, closely akin and likely inspired to Dior Homme. A men gourmand scent.+1

Sophisticated and a little smoky, but not in a burning sense, creamy, leathery, it's yet another exceptional fragrance from the house ZARA.+1

It's not a strongly scented cologne, yet warm, masculine and woodsy when it heats up. It will lightly stay with you all day long as well!+1

Ever since I was young, I have always loved to smell great. Cologne head all the way. Now that I am older I still love going to the mall or local shops to smell the latest fragrances. Always looking to make my collection of scents larger :)

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
