Red Temptation Women - Zara

Red Temptation Women BCR 540 gets cedar super dose
I fell for the hype and snatched a bottle when it was finally restocked despite not being a huge fan of the Baccarat in the first place. I was looking for a take on the original rather than the actual dupe, which at this price point...

Osmanthus - Molinard

Osmanthus A basket of apricots and a fresh cut bouquet on a summer morning
This osmanthus has a ghostly nature. It doesn't linger but rather continuously reappears as a fluffy innocent cloud. Lots of ripe apricot here. A light yet somehow rather saturated floral apricot I would...

Not overly original yet safe amber that leans masculine. Not too sweet, has a bit of musky freshness. Medium longevity and sillage.

It's mainly about coconut supported by a breezy ozonic/aquatic background. If you like freshies and coconut - this is for you.
A thicker, more syrupy and on me - less medicinal version of the EDP. I prefer this one as it seems to have more "integrity", so to speak.
Rather heavy amber with noticeable patchouli in the background, sweet and rich. Can get cloying. Shines in the late - late drydown.
A dry vanillic almost powdery (not in a cosmetic sense) oud, with the lightest touch of (unlisted) rose. Oud & vanilla read almost 50/50.
Good performance ✓ Quality ingredients ✓ Recognisable ✓ Polarising ✓ Personal tolerance X (due to the dentist's accord).

Plain & simple: this is a very, very close dupe for NR For Her (the black bottle). Good for touch ups over the original or as a standalone.

It is a nice and classy inoffensive chypre with a delicate fruity twist for everyday wear. Not a statement, rather mellow, good for office,

The pear makes it somewhat distantly similar to Hugo Boss Deep Red, but this one is drier and more sweet. The dry-down is quite fresh.

In the search of perfect composition. Why music is closer to perfumery than we might think.
I was never at ease with hunting perfume by the note. There are several reasons for it. Firstly, I am not familiar with every note out there (can anybody tell me where I could possibly test out the hyraceum note?) and even the ones I am familiar with can be split into two categories – the ones I have smelled...
