Bogart Citytower by Jacques Bogart

A fresh oriental; I can't stop snifing my wrist.
Never smelled something like this before.
Great projection and longevity: 10/10.
Bravo Jacques!

Molinard Homme I by Molinard

Boriing, out of mood, already scent. Thumbs down !

Fleur de Figuier by Molinard

A classic unisex figuier scent extremely pleasant to wear, chiefly during summer days (very refreshing). A cheaper alternative to Dyptique's Phylosikos.

Odeur 71 by Comme des Garçons

GREAT ! No hesitation if you want to smell "different " : this is definitely an anti perfume and you won't smell like if you had used an eau de toilette... You will smell (it is very difficult to describe 'cose this frag is very abstract) "fresh" and "clean" but also... dusty ! I didn't like it at all when I first sprayed it (smells too much like a burnt tire ; luckily this frag goes away pretty fast) but 1 hour after, when it has warmed and developped... !

S-ex by S-Perfume

Seems nice ! Probably I won't get it in France (never heard 'bout such a brand...). Is it the same kind of frag as "Rem" from Réminiscence ?? ("Rem" smells like "summer")

Rêve Indien by Fragonard

Delightfull just like an Eden if you love orientals. Also wearable by open-minded men... in the EDT version of course...

Santal by Fragonard

What a GREAT success !! Fresh but spicy and classical, this fragrance is a must have ! If you visit Nice, France, go at the Fragonard boutique in Eze : take the bus at the central station (2-3 euros), enjoy the trip (beautiful and romantic panoramas over the see), discover the old and high located Eze village, and go to Fragonnard's for cheaper prices : I recently bought a 20.4 oz (600ml) for only 50 euros !!!

Capucine by Fragonard

Laurent, you're absolutely right ! I'd just add that it's such a complex fragrance based on opposite sides : it can be either rich and extravagant or as innocent as a baby powder !!

Baroque by Fragonard

Just like in a boudoir... Said to turn over very fast...

Givenchy Gentleman by Givenchy

Definitely modern but classic, absolutely anti commercial (it almost stinks within 15 minutes untill it warms on your skin), this eau de toilette is completely gorgeous : masculine, woody, spicy and soooooo chic(if you like patchouli) ! A real must have !

Rem by Réminiscence

Hi ! I'm definitely in love with 2 perfumes fromp Reminiscence : Patchouli (men & women versions are the same fragrance in 2 different concentrations) and REM !
Talking about REM, which is a "sea scented" mediterranean perfume", (there are men and women versions; the masculine juice is exactly the same as the other one but in a lighter version; so, for the same price, you'd better buy the women version !!!) : imagine the soft smell of your tanned and salted skin after an entire day spent on a sunny beach. Imagine sand, sea, wind, tanning cream and refreshments, and you will (may) get quite the picture ! One of those rare and incredible moments ! One of those rare perfumes you will hardly smell !! Top notes : bergamot, cyclamen, notes of oceanic ozone. Heart Notes : honeysuckle, geranium, palmarosa. Base notes : musk, vanilla, coconut, patchouli, mysore sandalwood, tonka bean.
Rem is not another Acqua di Gio clone ! It is absolutly different and UNIQUE! it is not a perfume : it is an "anti perfume" : every one will ask you about this beautifull smell, but no one will be able to recognise one of those ingredients 'cause wou will smell "summer" ! http://www.reminiscence.fr/flash.html

Patchouli Homme by Réminiscence

Exactly the same fragrance as the woman version but in a lighter way. So, for the same price, you'd better buy the woman one (which is a bit like an eau de parfum) ! If you like sweet but strong patchouli, this one has definitely no rival...

Patchouli by Réminiscence

Exists in 2 versions : woman or man; the second one is exactly the same fragrance as the 1st version but in a lighter way. So, for the same price, you'd better buy the woman one (which is a bit like an eau de parfum) ! If you like sweet but strong patchouli, this one has definitely no rival...

Jammin by Réminiscence

This perfume is in fact unisex... Smells a lot like majijuanna. Not one of my favourite ones, but nice...

Ile d'Amour by Fragonard

Also wearable by men... A kind of Givenchy "Insensé Ultramarine", but in a different way...

Passage d'Enfer by L'Artisan Parfumeur

If you love gothic experiences, you will also like "Avignon" by Comme des Garcons !!

Teck by Molinard

Nice but so old scool ! Women fragrances are so much interesting at Molinard ! BUT , if you do like Teck, you still can order it at : www.molinard.com. OR, if you go on vacations in France, Nice, just go at the Molinard boutique to get an incredible discount : I recently bought a 10 oz (300 ml) Habanita bottle for only 74 euros !!!

Rafale by Molinard

Nice but "soooooo" old scool... Women fragrances at Molinard's are so much interesting.... Try "Ambre" or or "Habanita" (be light when you spray) which are unisex.

Madigral by Molinard

Nice but "soooooo" old scool... Women fragrances at Molinard's are so much interesting.... Try "Ambre" or or "Habanita" (be light when you spray) which are unisex !

Habit Rouge by Guerlain

If you like Habit Rouge, you will certainly LOVE "Habanita " from Molinard ! In the 60's, Jean-Paul Guerlain created Habit Rouge, being EXTREMELY influenced by Habanita. The main differences : Habanita (nowadays marketed for women, but originally unisex fragrance) is stronger, much more radical and complex than HR. It is also said to be one of the most powerfull and long lasting known perfumes (it is incredible how it stays on your skin !!!Soooooo economic !). To my mind, and nose, I only now buy Habanita from Molinard ! Should you buy Habanita, be extremely light when you spray (!) or you will smell like a drag queen (so much concentrated than Habit Rouge !). By chance, if you visit France,Nice, go at the Molinard boutique to get a cheaper price : I recently bought a 10 oz (300ml)Habanita bottle for only 74 euros !Waooo : 2 years of fragrance in front of me !!!

Comme des Garçons Parfum by Comme des Garçons

Waouu ! Such a USO (unidentified smelling object)! Love it : absolutely medicinal and addictive ! I'm in love with this brand I recently discovered : it is so far away from conventionnal fragrances you usually buy in Europe (Dior, Channel...). If you like USOs and sea scented perfumes, try out "Rem" from Reminiscence...

Un Air d'Habanita by Molinard

Nice for women... definitely commercial : ylang-ylang, jasmine... Absolutely unwearable for men at the opposite of "Habanita" originally designed for men...
15th March, 2007

Ambre by Molinard

A real success : easy to wear even during summers. If you like amber, do not hesitate, it's a must have !
15th March, 2007

Habanita by Molinard

Also wearable by men (it was originally designed for them), but be extremely light when you spray it or you will smell too much like a drag queen ! Guerlain has been EXTREMELY influenced by Habanita when he created 'Habit Rouge for men' in the 60's; it's similar but in a different way I'd say... maybe 'cose the fragrance is lighter).
