Spice and Wood by Creed

The good: A fresh woody/citrusy opening, like a high quality cologne. From there, more warmth and some mild spice and cedar wood, in a pencil shaving, slightly dusty way. Nice balance and transparency. Good performance.

The bad: It's price. This smells classy, balanced and natural, but conceptually there's nothing groundbreaking and it's not particularly exciting.

The final: Reminiscent of a cross between the best of some the Lalique's for men (Lion, White) and Cartier's Déclaration. For those who can afford it, I could see how this can be a signature scent.

Azemour les Orangers by Parfum d'Empire

The good: Vibrant, dense, opulent citrus. Mesmerizing and daring with that punchy cumin and iodine kick to it. Perfectly solid from start to finish with a beautiful resinous accent in the dry down.

The bad: Can be a little too much in certain conditions or circumstances and the cumin can be off-putting.

The overall: Stunning piece of perfumery at a high value for money price-point! Not necessarily unique in concept but definitely among the only few who do it in such an overwhelming way. Nice!

Aoud Forest by Montale

The good: Evocative scent, somehow reminding me of the smell of hair or skin after a long, breezy walk on the seaside. Different and attractive in an atypical way. Solid performance.

The bad: A somewhat messy concoction, as if the result of a random experiment, rather then traditional craftsmanship. No oud, no forest.

The overall: Ignore it's name and put aside any traditional perfume good manners and you might find this one taking you on a trip down memory lane.
