Infusion d'Homme (Eau de Toilette) by Prada

Infusion d'Homme (Eau de Toilette)„Linens From My Grandma’s Closet”
Infusion d'Homme is simply one of the best soap-smelling perfume ever, isn't it? it smells bubbly, aqueous and floral... ain't no like your typical men’s scent. If subtle, crisp, light, neat, powdery, balmy, unoffensive, polished are how you imagine...

Norrland by Zara

Norrland„The Conquering Blend of Citrus, Spicy, and Woody Notes”
To start with, I know it might sound weird to some of you but, I adore the smell of fresh cut wood in the morning... although, this time out of Zara's Tiveden and Norrland I choose the latter. It is woodier with a hint of pencil...

Now that I've just tested this one I know what Zara Denim Couture Extreme is closely akin to. So sweet, fruity, green, gourmand, and boozy.+3
I sprayed this morning just before dressing and when I reentered my bedroom a lovely aroma was lingering in the air. I think it's amazing!+1

It smells fresh and clean, mildly aromatic but mostly just fresh and clean, like a bar of soap.
Unique lovely smelling, soapy, genderless!+3

Such an eccentric cologne that might be confusing for most of the people, a love it or hate it kind. Unconventionally sweet, woody, musky.
A bouquet of fragrant sweet, woody and aromatic tones that will bring a sensual, calming and fresh perfumed sensation. Powdery and floral :D+2

The bottle is too ugly for my taste... yet the juice inside is so extraordinary, a spicy-powdery-oriental accord you will fall in love with!+2

This scent smells amazing, it's oceanic, with hints of flowers, a slightly fruity bouquet, and a tad of oakmoss, very sharp & neat smelling!+3

An infinite rush among pink pepper, vetiver, and moss. A spicy, earthy, and mossy accord that invigorates your sad and weak days. Must have!+3

Bois d'Argent is like a breeze quietly flowing thru a hazy silver birches dale at night. Ascetic incensed leather, and soft honeyed vanilla.+3

I seem it's a clear presence of wetness, it smells like a city after rain, and is not by chance that drizzly London was such an inspiration!+1

Elysium„​Summer Solstice is all about Adventurous Scents”
Are you ready to summerize your perfume wardrobe? Recently it was the Summer Solstice day and you should have made ready or suitable or equip in advance for gradually swap out your aromatic and floral dominant spring scents with more adventurous, citrus, green, aquatic, airy, breezy, and fresh ones more proper for the hotter sunnier months. The days are longer, the evenings are lighter and the mood is generally brighter during summer. When it comes to fragrance, the idea that freshness becomes a part...

Hello Elysium, I added all of the unlisted fragrances to research except the Ruh Khus (Vetiver) attar, as no perfumer is listed and it is labeled as "unbranded" (markenlos).

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,
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.
