  1. Un Bois Vanille by Serge Lutens Review

    by , 6th February 2013 at 02:49 PM (Riding the Thermals)
    This is what I thought L'Artisan's Havana Vanille would smell like. This is a smoother, more harmonious, cohesive, and pricier version of the same concept. Like Havana Vanille, it too, does not smell like the most natural vanilla, though Un Bois Vanille is warmer and silkier, with the supporting notes lending the slightest amount of depth and complexity in a very complimentary way. That said, Un Bois Vanille still reminds me of a woman with a fresh blow out and highlights, wearing a Tiffany's charm ...

  2. Gilded Lily by Ineke: Review

    by , 6th February 2013 at 02:24 PM (Riding the Thermals)
    Thank you so much, Ineke for the gorgeous sample collection.

    Gilded Lily is dark, sexy, and masculine, yet it miraculously manages to retain a powdery fresh quality, never becoming cloying or sour as it develops on the skin. It only continues to open ever more gracefully, warmed by labdanum in the base. This fragrance is unique and seamless from start to finish.

    Gilded Lily perfume is a tough, beautiful, Japanese-Italian girl from Queens. She is exotic and petite, ...
  3. Perfect Bliss by Sarah Horowitz Parfums: Review

    by , 6th February 2013 at 02:21 PM (Riding the Thermals)
    On first application, there is a radiating brightness from the yellow sweet and acidic tropical fruits, but Perfect Bliss does calm down on the skin fairly quickly, and within about ten-twenty minutes the vanilla, cedar and patchouli come floating to the surface of this natural and harmonious tropical fruit-scented pool, with flowers growing all around its edges.

    As the scent develops on my skin, the arrival of the cedar, patchouli and vanilla against the sugary acidity of the fruit, ...
  4. Tom Ford for Men Extreme by Tom Ford: Review

    by , 6th February 2013 at 02:12 PM (Riding the Thermals)
    Tom Ford Extreme begins with an oxblood leather couch in the study of a famous psychiatrist. The study is lined with books and the sprawling hardwood desk contains a silver letter opener, a meteorite paperweight, and other lavish clutter. Next to the desk is a pipe chest, where an extraordinary collection of pipes from all over the world, fine tobacco, and spiny brand new pipe cleaners all wait silently in the dark.

    This rich but reserved fragrance opens with a salty creamy leather ...
  5. Brooks Brothers New York Gentleman Review

    by , 5th February 2013 at 03:30 PM (Riding the Thermals)
    Brooks Brothers was generous enough to accommodate me with a small bottle of New York Gentleman, the masculine counterpart to New York for Ladies. NYG has the peppery opening of a 40 watt light bulb (powered by true to life verbena and bergamot), which gradually dims down to a comforting green glow stick, emitting a trace of warmth from spice and vetiver. At one point, it feels like it almost wants to turn aquatic, but veers away just in time. Whew...

    The citrus is front and center ...
