Phew, did not know I used to be gonna get into fragrances that a lot… It appears a lot larger once you have a look at a photograph of the gathering slightly once you simply take it as a right once you’re about to seize and apply some perfume within the morning or earlier than going out with somebody. However I’ve grown fairly obsessed with it and my checking account would not take such a heavy hit as I am pretty cautious.
I’ve tried to rearrange the fragrances from left to proper for chilly climate to sizzling climate. So principally in case you go from left to proper it will be stuff I might use for Winter, then Fall, then some versatile fragrances, then Spring, then Summer time after all. However I am not too strict on it.
Anyway right here we go:
Valentino Uomo Intense – This was my first candy sort of perfume. Completely cherished it the primary time I smelled it. I did odor Dior Homme Intense earlier than, however the sweetness and the powdery vibe from the Iris felt sort of female leaning and I wished one thing that’s extra unisex/masculine leaning. This one is a good compromise. My most used Winter scent.
Burberry London – Yeah, this one is for the Christmas vibes. I take advantage of it very seldom then. Nevertheless it brings me again to this particular time of the yr. The cinnamon, the leather-based, the woods and tobacco… god rattling! I haven’t got a scent that is practically as cozy as this one. Now that I give it some thought I believe I am going to sneak some on tomorrow anyway, lol!
Versace Eros EdP – It smells so contemporary and candy. You get the mint, the citrus and the apple. I believe the drydown makes it a bit extra mature and richer. What I do not know is that if I may use this on Summer time if I’m going mild on the set off. I actually did not care about this one initially after I noticed it within the store, then I heard about an EdP launch. Tried it within the retailer and the remainder is historical past.
Tom Ford Ombré Leather-based – Put a reasonably good dent in it already. I assumed I would actually dislike one thing that was actually leathery, I imply it is bought LEATHER within the identify in spite of everything. I used to be shocked by how a lot I loved smelling it. There’s some sweetness in it which balances it out a little bit. Smells actually unisex to me. Contemplating I really like carrying black garments and leather-based jackets/boots, that is my jam.
JPG Extremely Mâle – Jeremy Perfume eat your coronary heart out! I discovered this a technique earlier than I even went to look at this man, haha. Candy, fruity, loud, playful. It has its attraction. I snuck some on now and again in December, however I might actually take pleasure in it in a membership these days together with Eros EdP. My bottle is only a notch under nuclear.
JPG Le Mâle – Ah yeah, this one I used from a toooon of samples I collected through the years since I used to be a teen. 10 years later I pulled the set off on it, in truth that was only a week in the past. Gotta say it is value it, I am simply so acquainted with it now that it is nonetheless intoxicating to me. Humorous sufficient after I sprayed it on after such a very long time once more I used to be kinda shocked as a result of the opening looks like my Reflection Man pattern simply spicier, with the drydown being hotter, sweeter and heavier. Drydown’s completely different sufficient although, so NO DON’T KILL ME it isn’t as comparable as different individuals say!
Hugo Boss Bottled EdP – Had to purchase it. I just like the Boss Bottled DNA, however the EdT was so weak… It is not a efficiency beast by any means, however on my pores and skin it lasts for much longer than what different individuals’s critiques say (7-Eight hours for me), projection is okay, like perhaps 1-2 hours of reasonable projection earlier than it turns into a pores and skin scent.
1 Million Fortunate – Yeees, 1 Million, however this one is very nice imo. The hazelnut and honey actually do it for me. Unusually has a contemporary vibe to it than something overly heavy, in order that one felt extra like a Fall perfume. I am going to use this one lots this coming Fall.
Azzaro Needed By Night time – Used this a shitton final yr’s Fall. Fruity, with cinnamon and tobacco. Very nice smelling. It is candy however positively NOT in the best way of Invictus. Once more, nice performer, good projection.
La Nuit De L’Homme – Attractive af, nice for nights out. ‘Nuff mentioned. Efficiency is not dangerous in any respect, may very well be my pores and skin nevertheless it nonetheless lasts not less than Eight hours and I get about 2 hours projection earlier than it slowly turns into a pores and skin scent. Nevertheless it’s such a pleasant heat, inviting scent. Very intoxicating!
Versace Dylan Blue – Not a lot to say right here. Aquatic, bathe gel-y within the opening, within the base you may odor the incense. For some motive I really feel like carrying this one most in Spring, however I’ve been utilizing it on and off as a result of there’s simply one thing about it… I can not put my finger on it. Additionally fills a pleasant hole between BDC and Sauvage because it has elements of each.
Montblanc Explorer/CDNIM – Your typical Aventus impressed/cloned perfume. I am going to simply put these two collectively since you noticed these hundreds of occasions. CDNIM I want, I can recover from the opening as a result of I take pleasure in citrus however I additionally perceive individuals being turned off by it. Drydown’s wonderful although, def not as top quality however truthfully, 30 EUR for that efficiency? Shit’s nuclear. Explorer can also be an excellent performer, I did not give it as a lot of an opportunity again then as a result of I had it on a check strip and did not odor ANYTHING. On pores and skin it is beautiful, I may see carrying this in hotter climate. Inoffensive, fruity, contemporary, lasts about 6-Eight hours with 2 hours projection.
Dior Sauvage – Acquired the EdP, significantly better than the EdT imo. And lol Door Sausage.
(JK it is good, idc if it is imagined to be generic, no person the place I dwell intends on shopping for fragrances at this worth level).
Prada L’Homme – My favorite workplace scent. I’m within the workplace lots, so having that many blue/inoffensive fragrances offers me some selection. However whereas having so many, having nearly half of this one left says lots. It is contemporary however in a not overdone, contemporary laundry sort of method.
Dolce & Gabanna Okay – Probably not as blue of a scent as I assumed. It is bought a fruity freshness to it, only a slight bathe gel vibe once more, pretty spicy however is rather more rounded than the EdT imo. Actually robust within the longevity division. Preliminary sniff wasn’t tooo spectacular nevertheless it grew on me, like a TON.
Armani Eau De Cedrè – Certainly one of first actual thought by means of perfume purchases, it was my signature scent final yr. Woody, inexperienced, fragrant, barely powdery and citrusy with a touch of black tea. Performs amazingly effectively on my pores and skin, not less than 10 hours with 3-Four hours of stable projection. So many unsolicited compliments, humorous sufficient.
BDC EdP – No rationalization wanted right here. Barely woody, barely citrusy, with some incense. Additionally heavy dent on this one, it simply WORKS. If I needed to choose only one out of the blue fragrances, it will be this or YSL Y EdP.
YSL Y EdP – Kinda considered Invictus after I first smelled it. It is fruity and contemporary, it smells barely artificial so perhaps that is the place it is coming from. However oh boy it smells a lot nicer. I positively go mild on the set off if I’m going to the workplace as a result of the efficiency is rattling good. I can inform this one can be nice in Summer time!
Prada Amber Pour Homme – Turned off by it on the preliminary odor, nevertheless it grew on me and I really like this now. Veryyy soapy, positively soapier than Prada L’Homme. However the drydown hits the mark for me, massive time. Not your typical generic perfume. Efficiency can also be not less than 10 hours, projection is nice.
Aqcua Di Gio Profumo – I get only a tiny little bit of cucumber with this perfume. It is aquatic, however is smokier and spicier than Profondo which provides it that extra mature really feel. Longevity is about Eight hours, projection is nice for the primary 2-Three hours or so earlier than it dials down right into a pores and skin scent.
Chanel AHS – Only a good, contemporary scent. Very inoffensive, longevity is about 6 hours for me, give or take. It is bought a really good heat drydown from the tonka, amber and vanilla. Nevertheless it’s nonetheless very a lot appropriate for warm climate, I really like carrying it on Summer time nights. Eau Excessive would carry out higher ofc, however I really feel this one is way hotter within the drydown and is extra for Summer time nights solely or colder climate.
Chanel AH Version Blanche – Identical as AHS, love carrying it in Summer time. It is bought the AHS DNA, which is reworked right into a creamier, extra citrusy model. Performs practically the identical because the OG AHS for me.
L’eau D’Issey Shades Of Kolam – Did not see this one right here in any respect. Acquired it for affordable on Black Friday. 125 ml for 20 EUR? I am in. From having smelled nearly solely designer fragrances and VERY few area of interest fragrances… it is a distinctive Summer time scent. It is citrusy contemporary, nevertheless it has… I do not know, a mildly creamy and natural vibe from it? Have to be from the inexperienced tea and cashmeran. Anyhow it is one way or the other grown on me lots. Not many prefer it or find out about it in all probability, however I really feel like I might use it alot this Summer time. Sadly it is bought like solely 5 hours earlier than it turns into a pores and skin scent slightly shortly. However for Summer time, that is completely acceptable.
Bvlgari Aqva Atlantiqve – I believe I smelled the common Aqva and I used to be like “Nope, overlook it”, and simply let or not it’s for the flankers aswell. However I gave it an opportunity by attempting this one as an alternative… Yup, positively aquatic once more, nevertheless it’s positively doing its identify justice. Additionally the efficiency is beastly, a Summer time perfume that lasts not less than 8-10 hours… Rattling.
Acqua Di Parma Colonia Essenza – Did not use this one in a looong time and you do not even see it on right here! Why’s that? Properly I lent it out to my buddy for some time for just a few days. Very clear, citrusy cologne. Good different to my Version Blanche which is on the creamier facet. On my pores and skin it performs higher than what most individuals say once more, so higher try it out in case you’re intrigued.
Honorable mentions (samples):
Amouage Reflection Man (white floral, amazingly contemporary and clear smelling. Actually top quality), Amouage Interlude Man Black Iris (Love every part about it, the Oud took a while getting used to. I posted a thread about me disliking Oud nevertheless it’s okay with this one as with Versace Oud Noir now. I simply do not know when and the place to make use of this one as a result of it is reaaally robust, all I would like is one spray from my pattern)
Hope you loved studying!
