Fire Water by Comin

Fire Water„True Myth for Weirdly Normal Men”
This perfume is utterly another great discovery in Comin's collection. It's truly nice, sort of dry spicy and hot, yet not in a heavy way, surely not a strong, bold spiciness and definitely not overpowering. I reckon the Fire part is the chilly and sharp...

Eau de Iceberg 74 Amber by Iceberg

Eau de Iceberg 74 Amber„The Dark Side of the Amber Fall”
Eau de Iceberg est. 74 Amber was a big surprise to me. Quite a few years ago I strived for getting Eau de Iceberg est. 74 original, whose smell is developed around the unusual Kingwood, so distinct, with rosewood-like odor when being worked or warmed......

I get a powdery sweet amber accord with an underlying essence of wood. Kind of like an inexpensive nod to YSL l'Homme Intense for cool days+1

GT GT - New Brand   Elysium 13 days ago
It's an aquatic, aromatic, and woody scent that's deeply well-bred and powerful, phenomenal, one of the best on budget release. Must have!+3
An aromatic, gourmand, and woody fragrance, yet a bit oriental away from the fresh redolences. The bitter almond is addictive but not sweet.+1

One of fall scent favorites of mine. Old school raw leather, dark patchouli, earthy vetiver, magically mixed with aromas and red blossoms!+1

A warm ray of light... Imagine a bunch of fruit salad laying on a bed of flower petals served in a wooden bowl, all seasoned with ambroxan!+1

The bitter orange blossom note is so prominent that reminds me of the gorgeous traditional Neapolitan Easter Wheat Pie smell, aka Pastiera!

Just bought it, starts with a bright and spicy citrus accord, the heart warms up with woody and odorous tones, and fades greenery and mossy.

Whoa! Refined and fascinating masculine scent, in which patchouli and cedarwood harmonize bloody well, and stands out from dawn until dusk!+1

Just tested... it opens up with a wondrous non-orangery citrus blend, which quickly unveils woody and rooty vetiver. Unexpected pleasure!+1

There is just a sign of oud, then plenty of spicy cinnamon and animal musk, with a powdery amber in the background. Flawless for a night out+1

Elysium„​The Club, the Intense, and the Edition Monte-Carlo”
In the latest years, Sergio Tacchini released three real doozy men's colognes entitled Club, Club Intense, and Club Edition Monte-Carlo. I have no clue whether the last two are deemed to be flankers of the original one, certainly, they smell completely different from one another. I came across those three unknown gems barely a week ago, a perfume store was offering them at a convenient bargain between 40% and 50% the retail price, and I decided right off the bat to test them all. In the beginning,...

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

Hi there, seeing ZARA latest Night pour Homme IV EDP for sale gave him a thrill... I look forward to testing it soon!

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.

Your enthusiasm for fragrances is truly infectious, Gianluca. Keep the good vibes flowing!
