Givenchy pour Homme Blue Label (Eau de Toilette) by Givenchy

Givenchy pour Homme Blue Label (Eau de Toilette)„Hedione, it comes from the Greek word for pleasure”
Givenchy Pour Homme Blue Label used to be my signature scent when it was released more than 10 years ago. I remember it was a classic woody fragrance, with a tinge of aquatic and floral notes. Originally, I was captured by the astonishing...

Acqua di Parisis Essenza Intensa - Oud Couture„LOEWE Esencia enriched with Oud”
I've got few Acqua di Parisis Essenza Intensa, yet Oud Couture and Arabian Roses where missing in my collection. I sprayed a couple of squirts on the sample paper, let the alcohol go away and then sniffed it... I got a whiff of something pleasantly...

I forgot how much I loved it till I decided to wear it this morning. Oh man, the citrus-spicy blend of orange and cardamom is so damn good!+2
A marvelous explosion of spicy Saffron, mild dark Rose, creamy Sandalwood, smoky Vetiver, and black Oud. So good for a cold winter night out+1

I thought it was just another 1 Million clone, therefore I always neglected it, and I was wrong. It is an uncanned copy of Paco Rabanne XS!+1

Accord N°2 Oriental is just too good to be true. Notwithstanding it's been released for women, it's good enough for men, either. Love it!!!+1

So, apparently, there is no vanilla in this potion. But the scent smells like vanilla and its name is Deep Vanilla, so what the fuss???+2

Once the weather begins to cool, we always find ourselves yearning for the comfort of a little extra craft chocolate. Just for the lovers!+1
The sweetest spin-off of Azzaro pour Homme. If my memory serves me, this one has the same vibe as Lancetti IL, my favorites when I was young+2
It is similar to Pure Havane, but not really a clone. It's a bit more masculine with a stronger tobacco note and a fainter vanilla & cherry+3

A great specific blend of spices, sweet almonds, and bitter woods, nutty I would dare. One can almost taste marzipan when wearing this. Nice+2

Elysium„The Old God and the New”
Have you ever found yourself obsessed with something? So consumed with something that you can hardly even think of anything else? A relationship, a new phone, a perfect body, your reputation, good grades, a magnificent cologne, a unique style—anything can leave you obsessed.Obsession is a vintage CK male cologne that belongs to the past century and it was my first oriental fragrance, which I wore in the late Eighty when I was twenty-something and I went through two bottles of this after high school...

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,

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.
