Perfect for autumn/winter
"Warm" perfume, perfect for the cold season. A real cuddle when you are inside and there's bad weather outside.
A little rétro, a little powdery. It gives me the feeling of "old library atmosphere", a sensation that also Whispers in The Library by Maison Margiela gives me, but I find them different and both very interesting.

SO GOOD
I'm in love. This is another perfume I'd gladly add to my collection.
It opens citrusy and then evolves in a creamy floral that almost moves me for its realism. I adore frangipani but here jasmine is something wow, crazy, it feels like having flower petals right under my nose.
Unfortunately it doesn't have a big sillage and also the persistence is not remarkable.

Bottle

Cotton candy
I've bought the full bottle from a guy who didn't like this perfume, in my opinion because it's not very "manly" as the name suggests.
I confirm it's similar to Baccarat and maybe even more to Cloud by Ariana Grande, it's very sweet, it feels like being wrapped in cotton candy.
Very good persistence if you give many sprays in the same spot and especially on clothes. It remained on the skin even after the shower and I was very surprised by this.
My mum got in our house and said: "who's wearing Baccarat?" - me: "are you sure it's Baccarat?" - "no, but it smells like" - "to me it's more like Cloud" - "yes it's true".
Anyway, it's a pity it's been discontinued as it wasn't bad at all.
(decants available if interested).

Nice but...
As a good Adam Driver fan, I've been to the local perfume shop to smell Hero by Burberry, finally!
I’ll be honest, I expected much much more. Probably it’s because it’s 1 year that I’m exploring niche perfumery so I’m used to other kind of stuff even if I don’t disdain commercial perfumery... but this was so...”anonymous”/generic?
Like yes, it’s without doubts good, but it’s something I’ve already smelled. I’ve tried it both on the mouillette and on my skin, I 100% prefer the smell that leaves on my skin but it's not a perfume I'd buy (for me or as a gift for a man).
Plus even the name is not appropriate in my opinion, you can't call Hero a fragrance that is really normal/average and could be worn by everybody on every occasion, maybe in the office so you don't bother anybody.
Then you show me Adam as a centaur in the ad, nope! Not a centaur frag :'D It's obvious that I have expectations after that!

Pure fire and at the same time charm in a bottle
"Do not feel lonely, the entire universe is inside you. Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion. Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames."
Rumi, Persian Poet, 13th Century.
This is the quote by Rumi which inspired Nishane's Fan your Flame, an amazing (probably one of the best) perfumes I've ever smelled. A combination of coconut, tobacco and rum that gives a warm Caribbean touch to the sweetness of tonka bean and to the woodiness of Chinese cedarwood. Oakmoss completes the picture.
F.Y.F. is an extrait of parfum, this means that sillage and persistence are huge!

It's an unisex fragrance, in my opinion more masculine but it can suit women too without problems! This is why I decided to make myself a "little" gift and buy it, I just couldn't resist... I fell in love at first "sniff"
It's wild, pure fire, but at the same time charm in a bottle.
Preferably to be sprayed in autumn/winter because as I said, it's literally fire! HOT
The bottle is very elegant and it comes in a beautiful box with an amazing postcard. Well done Nishane!
