Just another Aventus?
This one smells just right if you fancy the (fruity) Aventus DNA. I do own a 2017 bottle of Aventus and that one is much fruitier than the one my friend has (from 2011). Vibrant leather is a nice scent on its own tho, even if it is pretty close to Aventus without “being Aventus”. I like the smell a lot and I don’t mind the very soft sillage. Not every scent has to project like crazy if you ask me. But the longevity is about 2-3h on me and then it’s gone! Zara Rich Leather (which I also own)last a bit more, but that one is a bit mor woody and more zesty/harch in the opening.

Compared to CDNIM and l’aventure, I prefer the smell of Vibrant Leather edp. But my absolute favourite one that is NOT a clone of Aventus, yet similar vibe has to be Mancera Cedrat Boise! And Vibrant Leather reminds me a bit of Cedrat Boise in the drydown.

“What’ve U been smokin’?”
Beautiful, if you enjoy the smell of weed! It is exactly the opposite of every fresh, shower gel, blue scent that is mass produced.
Right from the bat you’ll get that cannabis rounded up with oud and incense. I also get some tobacco and coffe in the drydown, but the weed and oud are there pretty much all the way.

Projection? About 4-5h on me. Longevity is huge on my skin, and I basically have to wash this off. It lasts me 12-15h on skin. So go with one spray to start with.

If you spray your shirt, make sure it is a dark one. This will leave a stain (black juice).

Also, do not ware this if you are driving. If you get pulled over, the cops will believe you smoked some green. That’s how sweet and strong the weed note is in this joint.

All hail the Ferrari line...
Jeez... I really like these Ferrari ones! This house is really proving that it is possible to bring high quality scents to the masses for an extremely reasonable price!
What I especially appreciate with this line is that we all get a chance to try/own frags with certain notes/feels that more often are common in nieche world. Don’t get me wrong, these are most likely to be crowd pleasers. They are just a bit different than your avarege Dylan Blue, YsL Y, Blue de Chanel, Azzaro Chrom etc.
These are blended more the way a nieche frag is, just in a more mass pleasing way and the offer a distinct note in every release.

With that said, this one starts a beautiful Lavender note that’ll stick with you all the way (more or less). There will also be a sweet (not clawing sweet) Vanilla/Tonka mix after an hour that will carry this warm yet fresh scent forward. Some times I get a feel of ambroxan although this note is not listed.

All in all, in my opinion Bright Neroli and Radiant Bergamot (I do not own noble fig... yet)are both more zesty and uplifting than this one. But this is just as gorgeous and in my world as certain! Spring, summer, fall... work, home or at the mall.. you can easily rock ‘em all!

Another hyped Ferrari...
Once you spray this one you'll get a zesty bergamot blast together with some lime and ginger. The bergamot is a bit syntetic, but not bad at all. I really enjoy this intro! But i have to say that it does smell quite a lot different on skin than on paper (duh!?!?). After about 30min the bergamot tones down and the nutmeg and geranium enters. A bit of sweetnes but not at all a "disturbing kind of sweetnes", like rather pleasant sweetnes. This lasts around 4-5h on my skin and sits close to the skin after about an hour.

In my humble opinion this one is not as bright as "Bright Neroli", but it is really good. Both are made for spring/summer, but Bright Neroli is more uplifting to my nose.


As allways, don't bother the gender talk... Just spray on whatever you'd like!

There’s something wrong with the price...
Wow! Just wow! How is it even possible that some fancy frags with poor quality can end up having the same price as a kidney on the black market and yet get hyped, and this one with such an amazing quality can go for under $25?
In my opinion this one is so much better than Neroli Portifino (does this mean I have all the haters comin’ my way?). And I mean that because of the smell, the performance and the price. TF bottle looks nicer, but besides that... nothing, niente, nada.

Regarding the “does it lean masculine or feminine”-debate ... Who the hell cares? Just wear whatever you wanna wear and you’ll be fine! The frag on its own do not have genitals, nor does it have any specific sexual orientation:)
