Green Tea Bamboo by Elizabeth Arden

Green Tea Bamboo„Not too light nor too heavy but nice”
Green Tea Bamboo is another flanker of the renowned original Green Tea. The structure is pretty the same, this time the main vibe is more greener, leafy, floral, and woodier, yet not too sweet nor fruity as the other interpretations. To me, it's...

Agua Fresca by Adolfo Dominguez

Agua Fresca„A Wedding Wreath with Barbershop Soapiness”
Agua Fresca is based upon marjoram, whose botanical name means "joy of the mountain" in Greek, and was actually first used to make wreaths for use as wedding flowers. This was because Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, was believed to wear...

ZARA 7.0 reloaded! It's identical to that one, and closely akin to Éclat d'Arpège pour Homme. A great summer scent for working days, either!+1

If you're accustomed to Acqua di Giò pour Homme, just cut the salty marine accord out, bring the fresh wild berries accord in. Here you are!+2

Elysium„ZARA plays with Synthetic Man-Made Molecules”
ZARA's just released threesome man scents for the incoming autumn and winter seasons. They are all EDP in a 50m size, each one based upon a synthetic molecule with some complementary notes. Noteworthy is the number 4 replacing the letter A in the name. Ambrox is sweet, Cashmeran is woody, and Coranol is flowery.I've quickly tested them all, and right off the bat one is closely akin to Calvin Klein Reveal for men. I promise I will review them very soon.4mbroxThis molecule delivers sleek elegance and powerful...

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

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.
