Vawallpa's Perfume Reviews
A fruity affair
This is not your average celebrity scent. That is not necessarily a good or bad thing though. It is fruity from start to finish. I get grapefruit and passion fruit throughout with average longevity.
Mandarina Duck Black Extreme
You can smell the bergamot and pepper in the top notes. It quickly becomes quite fruity and almost smells like Xeryus Rouge but a bit more dark. Nice stuff :)
Mont Blanc "Joop Santal"
It does indeed share similarities to both Joop Homme & Creed's Original Santal. A very nice scent at a good price :)
Don't expect an 80's powerhouse :(
This is a complete reformulation. There is no trace of the original vintage Trussardi Uomo here. Although it is pleasant, it is not the ultra-masculine beast that the 80's version was :(
Davidoff Silver Shadow Pure Blend
This is a superb winter fragrance. The mix of saffron, cloves and cinnamon is outstanding. The original Silver Shadow was always one of my favourites but found that it was lacking longevity, and this corrects that, along with adding more spiciness and less powder. The notes are reminiscent of the smell of a cognac, maybe a smooth brandy or whiskey. It gives off a luxurious feel to the wearer and screams quality. Very hard to come by as it was limited edition and no longer in production. Why are so many great fragrances discontinued?
