N° 125 Wood by Stradivarius

N° 125 Wood„Just Too Ordinary To Wear With A Straight Face ”
Yesterday was Friday, and I usually finish work early on Friday. So, I thought about going for a walk in a big shopping mall, to shake off a week of work. And it was precisely then that I came across a clothing store called Stradivarius,...

Jaïpur Homme (Eau de Toilette)„The Hawa Mahal Heart In A Bottle”
Situated at Badi Choupad, Pink City of Jaipur, Hawa Mahal is also known as "Palace of Breeze" and was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh, the grandson of Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh, who was the founder of Jaipur. It has 953 windows on the outside...

I get a lot of similarities between n° 125 Wood and JPG Le Male. At least, in the main notes. Vanilla, lavender, and cedarwood are dominant.
An excellent oriental composition in almost every sense of the word, it's woody without being vexatious, and spicy without muting the others

I heart this scent and I am puzzled about the low rating. The wet, watery, and woody accord is so unique, and maybe it does not please all.+1

Ain't sweet, far from it, it's a very amber and dusty accord, and it's not openly green like its peers of that time such as Krizia Uomo.

Just tested, this is astonishing, so cute, so clean, so smooth, so warm, so unusual, so unique, so woody, so leathery, the One like no One.+1

This is a great cheapy to have in your collection, so if you can get past the lavender-heavy opening, you may be pleasantly surprised.

Cuir de Nuit is far from leathery, rather it is all too vanillic. The vanilla you get here ain't gourmand nor bourbon but woody and smoky.

Tonka isn't the protagonist, the star is benzoin, with its velvety finish and pronounced fruity note reminiscent of stewed Morello cherries!+1

The overall accord's waxy nuances, sweet rose odor, hay-like, many people might dislike it, yet many others might feel relaxed by this smell

You've to love the woody accord to fully appreciate this perfume. Imagine entering a sawmill where cedar logs are sawn... and here you are!+1

Elysium„ZARA, the Thunder Feel, and the Metallic Spirit”
In late 2018 ZARA released to the market a couple of colognes classified as masculine, in EDP concentration, a great package, a heavy and magnetic cap, a superb sprayer, and a plentiful 120 ml bottle colored with translucent shades outside and liquid silver inside... which almost justify the higher price...

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
