Tribute Attar by Amouage

Bought this tribute in december in amouage shop in Muscat, Oman.
the best oil you can get out of the middle east!!

Got my nose in several attars, but this one stood out as it's simply outstanding.
intriguing character and ungraspable beauty.

Bought my ex the attar homage (chew on this!), for it's the best onecan leave behind when gone: the attar smell.

French Lover / Bois d'Orage by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

French lover definitely is silly name for a scent full of class and honour.
Bois d'orage is an encounter of hart and soul,
Of style and dash, phlegm and passion,
of incense and vetiver.
The best marriage I know, without the pushed sweetness from amouage...
It's an up and down from enigma to evidence and back again.
It's a bull's eye.
Get it!

Knize Ten by Knize

knize ten - the velvet foundations for contempory modern looks
use its leather to walk the miles you always wanted to end but were afraid to begin.
use the sweet complexity to talk the words that make you entertain.
use its personality to get yourself company.

you don't need to smoke cigarettes in order to get the best out of tobacco.

Interlude Man by Amouage

quality stuff from Oman again.
the famous incense married off to modern wood and spices,
let there be harmony.

Géranium pour Monsieur by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

I once read a humoristic quote on purple rain Prince: he who's barely tall enough to glance out over a pot of geraniums.
this bottle of grasped geraniums could lift him up easily.
It is a royal scent made for the most classy moments as it is sofisticated to the bone.
It behaves like an angel on your shoulder that explains you by expressing the subtle but fundamental nuances of your style and statements.
How distinguished can a scent of flower get.

Musc Ravageur by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

This one rules.
a scent with a courageous personality.
in your face as it is.
Where your words are thinking again, this fragrance is shouting out loud what you are thinking. Sex. again.
But don't let the shouting mistake you, the voice that goes with this scent is sexy and warm, deep and clean, amber and musk.
Tricky though, you beter wear this aura when you're selfconfident!
otherwise this scent will quickly take the lead and rule over you

Fumerie Turque by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

a loaded one from Lutens,
I got involved into good fragrances and buying them by Lutens.
maybe that's why a few years later I can tell a Lutens smell out of the rest of the world.
FT stands out from the rest of the Lutens for there is an sharp edge to this one.
The complex and fine cut smoke counterparts the sweet, warm and thick layer of flowers and vanillaised honey, making the result and interesting up and down between light and heavy, light and dense, discretion and presence.
A perfect fit for the vintagedays chasing through europe currently!

Carnal Flower by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

This one hits!
If roses can shoot, then you find some in this bottle.
fits a multilayered personality, or when you're a bit unstable it will suit different moods.
Soft enough for a sofa flirt with someone you barely know,
complex enough for a difficult night out with a bunch of odd people
straight enough for professional encounters
spicy enough to party,
hard enough to hit.

the editions FM provoke...
in this case my appetite for seduction.

Tubéreuse Criminelle by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

The archteype Lutens, imo.
Sweet and sliceable thick, more rose than you can get by other means.
a refined and precise extraction of roses, but a bit too present and monotonous from my angle.
Maybe one of the friendliest fragrances out there.
But don't play hide and seek wearing this scent, they'll hunt you down in a second.
