Gold Oud by By Kilian

Used to own it. Sold it cheap. Needed to rid myself of this. After a few wearings, it smelled like a mature Women’s scent. Rose Bouquet shower soap. Strange thing is, I received more money for the Coffret sold separately. Good riddance.

Russian Leather by Memo

Tested Russian Leather for several days. In that span I received several compliments. One I was told it smells sexy on me. I don't look for compliments, they are a bonus.
Russian Leather comes off as Very Green. I love Green fragrances, so this is for me. Being that it's loaded with Cypress, Cedar and Pine Needles, I would consider this a Fougère. The sharp opening has a briskness to it, like walking into an arctic blast of cold air. Picks me up, pulls those shoulders back. Mid starts to turn Herbal, which I love. I was wearing this in warm February air. So this is very versatile. Some say it's a Winter scent. Not to me.
The base starts to kick in and after 4 hours Russian Leather is still going strong on my skin. Projection is above moderate. The Leather starts to peak out, it's a fine Leather. You get some green Patchouli leaves, not dark or dirty. Tonka smoothes it out. Find myself wafting my shirt to get billows of this fantastic fragrance. This lasted a good 8-10 hours. This is full bottle worthy to me and I will purchase it this week.

Baccarat Rouge 540 by Maison Francis Kurkdjian

I love it. Doesn't get the love it deserves. Some say it's too sweet or too feminine. I can name a lot more fragrances men wear, that come across way too Feminine.
The floral aspect in minimal. I get more wood. So I would say it's an oriental Woody. Well done by Mr. Kurkdjian.

Carven Homme by Carven

So I forked out $15 dollars. This scent is worth every bit of the hard earned cash I paid for it.No wonder it has been discontinued. I applied it at 7am, gone by 10:30. I litrrally have to bury my nose into my skin. The top is to die for, after that, nothing. I will be using this for the gym....

Sunshine Man by Amouage

I blind bought this and I am not disappointed. It is a little on the sweet side. This is definitely a good citrus for the fall. The Lavender and vanilla dominate the middle. The dry down is a bit woody, and I do get an amouage signature smoky vibe. It works on my skin. This is different for Amouage, along with Beloved, they move away from incense and resins. I'm okay with a different scent. Very creative.

masculin Pluriel by Maison Francis Kurkdjian

Just bought this today after a few weeks of testing. This is a straight up masculine Lavendar fragrance. Longievity is 5-7 hours with a moderate projection. I do not like loud fragrances and this is done just right. The mid to dry down keeps me sniffing for wafts from my shirt. Between 4-6 sprays is just right, if you like heavier feel free to do more. Great work scent, excellent for daytime casual wear. Great job MFK....

London by Tom Ford

I sold mine. This fragrance is a Cumin bomb and stinks. I wore it 3x and had enough. It was a blind buy due to the lack of availability in the U.S. I do not recommend this as a blind buy. London leans towards feminine. Farewell....

Gold Leather by Atelier Cologne

Absolutely fantastic! My signature LEATHER scent. The booze at the top neutralizes the medicinal harshness As TF Tuscan Leather has. I'm wearing this since 11am this morning and 6+ hrs. later it's still kicking. TF Tuscan Leather is a great Fragrance, for me, this works better. Very comforting....

Costa Azzurra by Tom Ford

Full bottle worthy. A fresh masculine summer fragrance with a pleasant woody dry down. I was skeptical at first given a sample at Neimans. I returned and sprayed it on and it was a total different fragrance. Dabbing does not give this fragrance justice. The longevity on me is a good 5-7 hours with 6 sprays. Becomes a skin scent after the 7th hour. Sillage and projection are a good arms lenght. Took off my shirt in the evening and smelled it next morning. It remained on my shirt. I left the room and came back about a half hour later, the room reeked from the shirt. My fiance' said she can still smell it on me. I'm happy! Great stuff!

Vétiver by Creed

I kid you not. I wore this today for the first time in many years. A female coworker at the office referred to me as the one who smells like a million bucks.
It's crisp and comforting. I applied 4 sprays at 9am and here it is 6pm and still wafting....

Blamage by Nasomatto

Great fragrance. Sweet at the top, some say peach? I get a little wood, leather, some Vetiver. Musk. Tomorrow in the heat will be my first full wearing. I sprayed a little on my hand and it's definitely a wearable warm weather scent sprayed with a half pump. The dry down so far has Black Afgano DNA. Very good and worth the blind buy.

Neroli Portofino by Tom Ford

I Just bought a bottle on ebay, 50 ml for $100. I applied it around 11am this morning and as I am typing this review it is still wafting, the Lavender is prominent on the dry down, a little amber, very slight. Would I pay full price? Yes if I have to. Great bargain. I was looking for a good summer fragrance with a tropical feel. Virgin Island water has too much Coconut to wear casually. Neroli Portofino with a white tee and shorts is unbeatable. Give it a chance, I used up a Bloomingdales sample and decided to make my purchase. It was available cheaper, why not....

Royal Oud by Creed

Love it! Great fall Fragrance. I'm an older gentleman and this fragrance is very sophisticated. I wear it to the office and get compliments daily. Ouds vary so I'm not concerned about it. I favor the Bergamot, Cedar, and musk. I spray 2 behind each ear and once each on the back of my hand, spritz a touch of water on my hands and smack my face once on each side. DONE! A coworker used used my phone to give a quick shout to someone and she said her hand smelled like my fragrance and could not stop smelling her hand during her drive home. Love it!
