    Norma Kamali Incense by Norma Kamali

    An extremely pungent (excellent longevity and sillage here) incense scent that smells as if you are standing at the entrance to a Japanese temple in front of a large urn of burning incense. A bit animalic at the opening, it slowly mellows over time. The best from this line and worth the price if incense is your thing.

    Zagara by Norma Kamali

    A beautiful, gender neutral orange blossom scent, watery and light. As with most of the Kamali scents, it fades rather quickly and so is not worth the price.

    Moschino Friends Men by Moschino

    I agree - a very odd citrus scent that smells identical to the Lysol I use for my garbage can - it's kinda funny and a bit uncanny.

    Harmonie Creole by Comptoir Sud Pacifique

    Amazing fragrance - CSP: Please bring this back! Saffron, maple, cinnamon, ginger, pepper and amber. Like a more spicey/herbal D'Orsay le Dandy minus the booze notes.

    Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker

    It was ok...I personally thought it was just a little bland. But the day i smelt it well, i had smelt a few perfumes before it, so it could have been good. But i remember it didn't smell that great.

    Baby Phat Goddess by Kimora Lee Simmons

    Meh...it wasn't all that bad. But then again, i did just put a little sample on the tip of my finger. Overall the fragrance was on the way to being to "the same" i guess...not that great, pretty average.

    Lauder for Men by Estée Lauder

    Puzzling over what to wear, my hand instinctively reached for Lauder for Men, despite not having worn this in many moons. What seemed normal to me absolutely shocked my noble assistant. "Sir, I'd nearly forgotten what a remarkable scent this is! Truly the Santal Noble of its' time and, I should say, every bit its equal and then some!"

    This classic 1985 scent opens with an harmonius lead of citrus, green notes, florals, woods and spice, with musk also present; artful. As this progresses, the woods and musk, with a little spice, assert themselves and turn this scent in an even more masculine direction with excellent duration! Truly should be tried by everyone.

    M7 Fresh by Yves Saint Laurent

    Probably the only fragrance deviation from the original (ex. "fresh", "extreme", "sport", etc.) that is actually better than the original. Original M7 is great ... but it's a bit limited to cooler weather and pretty much of a nighttime scent. It's a heavy, deep dark scent. But M7 Fresh brightens it up tremendously and turns it into a scent that's very versatile and could be worn in any season ... day or night.

    A permanent staple in my wardrobe.

    Rumba by Ted Lapidus

    Rumba delivers what it preaches. The scent is loud and sweet and exciting and i can very well imagine a fun woman who likes to dance to tropical beats.It's not for everyone as it might be too much for some and it's better for fresher days and if you use it on a warm day you might pass out of hotness and dehidration! It's a scent that's on the verge of being tacky but never lowers itself to it. I would imagine that the woman who wears this has a smile on her face all the time and enjoys life and partying. Bold! Hot!

    Noa by Cacharel

    The top is very fresh and it's flowery from the start. It's a pretty scent but doesn't have an unique personality. Wait and the drydown gets even better and the best flowers and musks come out and has a green quality to it and green i mean fresh morning grass. It reminds me of a prairie. Very nice and very pretty, femenine scent. I assume it's for everyday wear.It has a good longevity on the skin.

    Chance by Chanel

    I have a sour feeling that Chanel sold out on this one. It's certainly below the other female scents from the house. It has a perky and musky feeling to it.The concept is nice, the bottle is ugly to me.I feel it has a bit too much patchouli for a girl's (not a woman's) fragrance but still there are people that will go for that. Sweet on the drydown.Totally uninteresting, sadly.

    Chloé Narcisse by Chloé

    Even though is a strong, sweet very flowery fragrance i happen to like it a lot and it reminds me of the comfort of home. The notes are loud and if you happen to like Balenciaga's Rumba , you might like this one too, as it has some similarities concernig power, longevity and sweetness but they -of course- don't smell the same. Very good composition!

    Escada Sport Feeling Free by Escada

    The best of the escada sport line, it's sadly discontinued. It smelled like rain dops and one of the real acuatic scents without them saying so. Very airy too, it does feel like you are free of something that's dragging you down. A happy fresh scent, not sweet at all, the drydown is good a bit musky and wet , not too long lasting and simple, but it's a very very good scent.

    White Linen by Estée Lauder

    Not too bad but not fantastic either. The Aldehydes have a major role here in giving this fragrance its allure. It doesn't really smell like white linen but that's not really important since it's an ok scent. Femenine and long lasting, it has a powdery feel to it as well.Not very elegant but it's nice.

    Manifesto by Isabella Rossellini

    Well i wouldn't call it a "manly" scent but it certainly is unisex. The fresh top has some flowery bits and goes on to become a bit sweeter and the base is musky and comfortable. I wasn't expecting much from this one but was gladly surprised. I once had a cd that smelled similar to this one and it was nice. I like it a lot and it's for everyday use in my opinion.

    Glow by J.Lo by Jennifer Lopez

    Contrary to what most people have said, i was expecting to like this one a lot, but came out very dissapointed. Just what really is so special about this scent? It felt simple, undone and not really elegant and a bit like a sink cleanser. Nop, didn't like it one bit, i'm sorry to say. The top notes are fresh and airy, a bit sour. The middle is ok but doesn't last long and the basenotes are messy and a bit sweet-powdery.

    Country Weekend by Escada

    The other brother of the pack, this one is just nice and very interesting, simple too as is all the sport line but it's very much like freshly cut grass and might be a bit too sour for some. Has an airy tone to it too like the other Feeling Free blue one. But Feeling Free it's better. i would get these 2 of the 3 pack. The orange one, called Sport Spirit is just not par with the others and it's a bit too sweet. Why were they all discontinued? Bring back Feeling Free and Country Weekend!

    Escada Sport Spirit by Escada

    Yes it's very unisex and sporty, a bit on the sweet side and citrusy.Very young and fun, simple scent. Not the best of the sport line.

    B.Clean Relax by Benetton

    Although it's a nice scent, this one has kept me guessing, as it really is an unisex fragrance. At first it starts just a bit femenine with fresh flowers and a soothing light swetness, on the drydown it reminded me of some of the notes present in Minotaure, so it feels a bit masculine but not too much either. I think the best feature of this was the basenotes but it doesn't last long. Didn't find it particularly relaxing but then again i naturally tend to move a lot and have not so much rest during the day. It's nice.

    B.Clean Soft by Benetton

    Of the B. Clean line, this is the one i like the least. It's kinda sweet and sunny but not in a nice way i mean it felt a bit crass and unfinished. It's simple as the rest of the line and sadly, it's the one that lasts the longest. It's very fruity but not in a "escada special editions" kind of way.It could have been better.

    Magnetism for Men by Escada

    Yuck, a fruity concoction that last for ages and sticks to you even if you don't want to. So very long lasting, Sweet, a bit metallic and very tacky. The juice is kinda green and it will stain.Powdery on the drydown.

    212 Sexy by Carolina Herrera

    I find that for a sexy scent, it feels a bit anonymous. I thought sexy meant sultry and atractive and demanded a bit of attention, but this one doesn't feel that way. It's an ok scent and has very pretty notes but they don't seem to develop on the drydown. It should have been called Demure..it's floral and has a very light swetness to it. For everyday wear i think cause at nightime it can be drowned by other smells easily. It's fresh as well. A simple one from Herrera. i thought it's not up there aas the rest of the Herreras.
