Smuggler's Soul by Gorilla Perfume [Lush]

I've been away from the cologne/perfume game for a while, until my brother came back from Alaska with this gem. Now I've never really been big on sandalwood fragrances, either they are to strong or smells like an elderly person but this is different. It's very fresh and musky! It smells mature but the vetiver blends in to make it fresh, I believe ages 23 and up can pull this off. I love the other safe oils they use in this, I own the one in the little tin can and will be buying a few more plus they're book on Sandalwood and they're travels to find the best quality of sandalwood and the history. 5 out of 5 I truly love this and recommend it if you love anything sandalwood, this might surprise you!

Fierce by Abercrombie & Fitch

This is very spicy and fresh! Its a very masculine scent that will easily draw people in, it may be overly used but its used a lot for a reason...this smells very sexy! A man of confident's, a man that knows you only live once, a man that is..Fierce!!!

Very Sexy Platinum for Him by Victoria's Secret

My girlfriend smelled over 60 fragrances and out of all she picked Very Sexy Platinum! It smells like Abercrombie and Fitch Fierce that grew up and is no longer a man whore but a gentleman. Very fresh too!

Grabazzi by Gendarme

Its very clean, spicy, musky and I do get the coca cola fissy note! Its such a unique scent, i cant wait to buy the deodorant and hair and body wash. Almost time to buy another bottle, a 10 ozl bottle that is!

Green Irish Tweed by Creed

This is such in amazing fresh scent! I smell from the first spray a fresh opening of citrus,then after about 15 minutes i pick up the violet leaves with iris. Then after 2 hours to its drydown i get a very soothing green,clean scent.

I'm deffienelty buying a bottle of this just because its such a great clean safe scent and the longevity is 8 to 13 hours on my skin.

5 out of 5!

Gendarme by Gendarme

Fresh! Cant get any fresher than this, gendarme started very citrusy with jasmine and about 2 hours drys to a soapy fresh i just got out of the shower scent. I believe this is good worn anytime. The projection on this frag is amazing!

Water Calligraphy by By Kilian

I really liked this one,i got the jasmine and a strong grapefruit right away and in hour later i believe i smelled the magnolia. 2 hours later it smelled so aquatic with the jasmine and magnolia mixed together. So good,so creative. By Kilian is my favorite fragrance company for a reason :).

Rive Gauche pour Homme by Yves Saint Laurent

This does really have a barbershop/aftershave/barbsol shaving cream feel to it. Im very very pleased. It has my thumbs up. Such a great timeless masculine scent!

Bamboo Harmony by By Kilian

Right from first blast i get a very strong fresh smell of bergamot andd bigerade. 30 mins later i sense the white tea and leaves but the bergamot is still present. In hour goes by and i smell nothing but the tea :). 2 hours later tea and some spices with a hint of leaves. By kilian is one of those companys that are very "unique" and "rare". Very very good,i love it.

Gendarme 20 by Gendarme

Has the same gendarme scent with a huge kick of "white linen", i prefer this if i want to smell like the original but with a little more drive to it.

Le Mâle by Jean Paul Gaultier

Opens up with sweet lavender and by the hour i get a nice spicy fresh vanilla and as the hours go by i pick up a slight cinnamin,and all i smell now is vanilla and what i believe is "mint". Very good :).

New Zealand by Demeter Fragrance Library

Starts off very herbal,then after 30 mins i start to smell a woody mixed with grass smell,then after about in hour i picked up water or perhaps the ocean. Makes me want to go to NZ more and more. Great cologne but i dont think it would be something i would wear on nights out,mybe my personal alone scent.

Amber Oud by By Kilian

I really like this one it starts with amber and vanilla with a woody spicy vibe as i waited a couple hours it smelled similar to Musc Ravageur but a little more creamier if that makes sense. But in the end it dries down to a woody creamy oud scent. I like it another great scent by By Kilian,they never fail to impress me.

Sung Homme by Alfred Sung

I love this scent to death,its pretty much like irish spring but with a little funk added. It's a nice soapy/masculine scent and that's just all she wrote. I'm buying another bottle as soon as it runs out,which could be soon :). This is also a soapy scent that I find mature and very masculine.

L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme Extrême / Eau de Parfum by Guerlain

I really liked this one! I can see the resemblence in it's scent to Givenchy Play Intense but its way more sweeter. It starts out with nothing but coco and coco and 3 hours later,its a sweet coco,like in expensive chocolate you would smell at chocolate shops in malls. Really good scent :).

Musc Ravageur by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

The Scent: Right off the bat i smell amber and tonka i believe,not bad but im prepared to wait 4 hours for the drydown. About 3 hours later,i can smell the resemblence to a cinnabun. In hour later its like a cinnabun with spices and the tonka is still their.

I have been putting alot of use to this masterpiece,to make sure it wasnt all hype and it is what its suppose to be " A Masculine Scent " or " The Romantic Guy Scent ". I will only wear this for a romantic setting and im pretty sure this sample can hold its ground for the right time..and perhaps buy a full bottle which will last me forever.

Sweet Redemption by By Kilian

This is my second favorite scent from the By Killian line behind the brilliant scent in " A Taste Of Heaven ". This scent starts off with a sharp Orange smell and after about in hour the vanilla starts creeping in and you got a Vanilla/orange and a little musk to it on its final drydown. Beautiful scent and a beautiful ending to By Killian's unique,beautiful line of scents just AMAZING!

Love and Tears by By Kilian

Love and Tears brought a whole lot of jasmine from the start. And then in the later hours dried to a jasmine musk. Very good for women of course but will still keep it for my own personal like for the smell.

Beyond Love by By Kilian

I smell a sweet jasmine from the first spray,then after in hour im picking up rose. Then after 4 hours the rose is still present but a "sweet rose". I really like this fragrance after the second try.

Liaisons Dangereuses by By Kilian

This scent opens up with peach to me and after 2 hours is a nice cinnamon fruit that only last 3-4 hours for me. Mybe will last longer in colder weather. I like its scent for what it is.

Straight to Heaven by By Kilian

This has a huge rum opening for me and it dries down to a rum/leaves mixture. Not really my cup of tea but il wear it on occasion.

A Taste of Heaven by By Kilian

This is the scent ive been hunting for,i asked on basenotes for a floral/green/vanilla and some said curon homme but others really suggested this one and i bought a sample awhile back and i gave this fragrance time and it turned out to be one of my favorite scents. Even master piece worthy. 5 out of 5 and it last's on me for 14 hours.

Raw Vanilla by Coty

Very nice scent,its starts off with a strong soapy smell and then dry's down to a sweet (still soapy :) ) vanilla. Very good refreshing smell if i say so myself.
