Red Aoud - Montale

Red Aoud Another Day, Another Oud
You are enjoying the most beautiful sunset of your life. The sun is immense, and it shines like a colossal ruby ​​red ball in the sky full of clouds. Twilight gets darker every second, and the sun tints the sky with incredible hues of gold,...

Bright Rose - Zara

Bright Rose Like Walking Into A Florist At Midnight
I came across ZARA Bright Rose a couple of years ago, yet I haven’t worn it to this day. Dense, musky, a riot of tropical flowers and foliage. Quite dreamy, this perfume is very similar to a boudoir. The composition is a modern...

It isn't a sweet or greedy amber. It's a structured amber infused with the intense smoke that is incense and the leather that is labdanum.

We're talking about a very purified Oud, quite docile compared to most Middle Eastern offerings. It's a spicy woody creamy oud-based scent.

The oud is subtle, discreet, and wrapped in birch tar, creating a smoky, leathery background. The base is a huge castoreum bullet!
Red Aoud Red Aoud - Montale - 22 days ago
The dustiest Oud I've ever smelled. A rose's cloud scatter of saffron and cumin, backed by a fine base of vetiver, sandalwood and tonka.
An ultra amber oriental fragrance, in which all the notes of sweet benzoin, dirty patchouli, smoky incense stand out. 100% unisex to me!

It is a speck of naturally sweet dirt with beautiful dark mosses, not squeaky as I can find many clean mosses. This perfume is sumptuous.

This scent's outrageous! It opens with resinous incense note, the heart is dirty and flirty, and the finish is a smoky and aromatic tobacco!

The most sought after creamy blend of coffee and vanilla with a smooth taste of hazelnut that finishes beautifully. What a wonderful flavor!

The pastel pale pink bottle with its scent so soft, musky, and feminine that can make you fall in love every time. The Sultan’s Concubine.

I've got a lot of compliments. It last forever yet it's so damn intimate, not offensive for closer people. Creamy tobacco and dirty vanilla.

ElysiumSo Little Knew, Yet So Extremely Valuable
In the previous post, I told you about some of the perfumes I love, but which last very little on my skin. Today I would like to tell you about some perfumes I did not know, but that have turned out to be surprising. It may have happened to you, too, to read a review, a comment, or a statement of perfume you know and discover that...

Elysium​So Damn Sublime, Yet So Miserably Ephemeral
Have you ever craved for a perfume, because you read some excellent reviews, because you wore it some time ago, or more just because its olfactory family and the notes that compose it go well with your tastes, and you have ventured a purchase blindly? The desire increases with the wait; the perfume becomes part of your collection;...

Caro Gian Luca,
Il 2021 è stato un anno di incontri e giochi con i profumi solo a casa.
Che nel 2022 possiamo annusare i profumi ovunque vogliamo.
Buon Natale!

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
