Blooming Rose - Gianfranco Ferré

Blooming Rose The Power of Love
Today I would like to present the fragrance Blooming Rose created by Alexander Lee, an emerging perfumer of the historic Mane essential house. The new creation takes inspiration by the flower emblem of the heart and romanticism: the rose. This...

Roccobarocco Uno One, No One and One Hundred Thousand
Sometimes our instinct, or snobbism it would be better to say, causes us to make wrong choices. It has happened to me before, and I’m sure it will happen again, it’s inevitable. This time I’m talking about my reluctance...

Sometimes I wonder why the combination of fruits and berries with flowers is so enchanting, and Blooming Rose confirms this. Divine roses!

Enduring Glow is much more mature than I expected, in a good way. It is a fresh and immaculate floral; it is sweet but subtle and discreet.

Less fruity and citrus than Vibrant Leather, here the wet, herbal bamboo's tone and the dry, earthy papyrus'a taste make the enchantment!

Definitely a Fall cologne, the dry vetiver embraces the bright bergamot with a coffee nuance underneath, and touches of chocolaty patchouli

Oh man, it's so sensual, provocative, deep, penetrating, with spikes of saffron, tobacco and something medicinal it's impossible to describe

If you like Coco Mademoiselle, and you’re looking for a softer and lighter take, this is for you. Underrated, cheap, yet of excellent quality!
This is a relaunch of Zara White SoHo, same olfactive notes, same perfumer Jerome Epinette. So, redundant if you already own the other one.

As far as masculine or feminine goes, this is right in the middle. A scent that is quite luminous. An exquisite sense of musky freshness.

A citrus, fruity, floral, dirty, sweet, and powdery. A hidden and underrated stonegem, luscious, captivating, powerful. So damn good!

It's like Creed's Aventus, smokier and more mineral, not as load as that, yet it stays closer to the skin although the longevity is average.

ElysiumHow About Revlon Charlie Purple?
As I am curious by nature, and I have both, I wanted to experience this mix on my own skin. The result is indeed excellent! The chypre and floral tones of Charlie Blue blend perfectly with the sweet and floral tones of Charlie Red, giving life to a new sweet, floral, and chypre scent. I first sprayed the Blue and then overlaid the Red. The result...

Elysium​The Scent of Moor's Head Pearl and Topaz
It is not often that you are on vacation and come across a perfume, or preferably two, that you don't know and have never seen around. Well, here's what happened to me last week on my way home after summer vacation. I was a guest of friends and while shopping, I was struck by the beauty of the packaging of these two perfumes depicting...

Ciao Gian, Thank you for your report with the 3 Avenues - I'm really glad you found them enjoyable :) I myself haven't tried any other than Night and NYC yet (Night got a review, NYC was fresh-modern floral, pleasant enough) but am curious about the other ones, too. I have the feeling the 5th Av. line really may be not too much and neat in a good way. Would love to hear your opinion on further ones!
Stay safe you too, and have a good weekend. Anessa

Hi Elysium, I just saw your comment to my review. Thanks a lot. Luckily, Zoologist allows me to combine my love for animals with some inspirational storytelling that comes to my mind when smelling the scents. Victor's fragrances are the most fun to review.

Ciao Elysium, grazie per il tuo commento per la mia recensione di 5th Av. Night. Adesso mi sento responsabile, ma spero che il profumo ti piacerà :)

Hey Elysium, Thank you for reading and your comment under mine's of 5th Avenue :) I hope you'll find it was worth testing, Sparkling White Diamonds may even be more interesting for you.

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
