A crowd pleaser
Another one from the Liquors by Kilian that is going to make it into all top-whatever-lists on youtube afer last year's Angels' Share. The perfume is super likable. The fruity part is not too sweet, the woody not too tart. Together they are delicious, right in the middle of the balance between too straightforward catering to the tastes of the masses and the Kilian-esque elegance. Not super original, but super cozy and pleasant and probably going to be a success commercially.

Patchouli Chocolate
This is such a great chocolaty scent! Don't know what exactly produces this effect. I guess it could be the combination of patchouli, vetiver and ambery components, but this is just so perfect! Aromatic, deep, woody and most of all - chocolaty! However, it's not a simple edible chocolate, but a proper perfume! Love it!

Herbs of Mallorca
A herby soul of Mallorca! Just like the typical local drink, one can feel the island and its nature in this perfume. An aromatic mix of different herbs and wood mixes to form a tart, slightly bitter composition. Sandalwood comes through beautifully over time. A very naturally-smelling perfume. Like a walk on the island!

Orange Power!
A super powerful, lively, energetic and sunny orange-centered perfume! Like an explosion of oranges, with green leaves, twigs, zest and sweet fruity flesh. The leather accord gives an interesting and smart counterweight with its bitterness. Overall a very smart, modern interpretation. Super long-lasting and strong, especially for a citrus-themed fragrance! A very strong offering from the brand!

A 100% clone of Irish Leather by Memo. For better or for worse.
Love the way this smells - it instantly reminded me of one of my favorite perfumes of all times Irish Leather from Memo. And lo and behold - the list of notes (on the official booklets accompanying the perfumes) is IDENTICAL. Not similar, not sharing some notes, but 100% identical! No wonder they smell so similar! I think it wouldn't be possible to tell them apart in a blind test. Good thing I really love both Irish Leather and now this Argos creation. But it's the first time I encounter a complete 100% literal clone fragrance at such rarefied price point.

I wonder how this could have happened. Alienor Massenet and the creator of Argos had a completely identical idea? Or did Memo owners sell the formula to Argos? Or Argos are such huge fans of Irish Leather that they decided to copy it? We'll never know, but these two are 100% identical. You can choose which one to buy based on design and price, the smell will be the same.
