    Tibetan Mountain Temple by Pacifica

    Climbing to the Ascending Himalayan mountians of Kaliash your destination
    to reseach the ancient rituals of long ago holy men who Worshiped the Hindu
    Lord Shiva and he Beloved wife Parvati
    and when you almost reached the top
    you see the golden glow of the sunset
    and your greated by the Sadhu with there long locks chanting a alien language you never heard before.
    you here beautiful ringing of bells allround you almost set you in a trance. The intoxicating scent of incense floating to the mountians.
    the colors all around you
    and you see the most beautiful stature
    of the Lord Shiva with his black eyes
    Glazing at you.
    This perfume gives me that vibe.

    Je Reviens by Worth

    This is a Cheap Nickle & Dime Drugstore
    Supermarket attepmt on Chanel no 5 for the working Classes since the average
    Joe or Jane can't afford Chanel so they
    made this. the Aldehyde in this seems to
    be more synthitic more plastic then the
    earthy and more woodsy Chanel no 5.
    The color is Antiseptic like in Hospitals like the color of nurses
    And Doctors Scrubs or Bathroom Disinfectant with a Bright Turquiose
    Blue Liquid. There is a Leather basenote in this but it fails to have
    it's own Idenity in a trend of the once
    Popular perfume Trend The ALDEHYDES!!!

    Mugler Cologne by Thierry Mugler

    This smells horrible on my skin. I can't believe it's considered as a clean and inoffensive smell. My girlfriend didn't come near me for a day after I sprayed this on.

    L'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent

    Great signature scent. Very inoffensive, can wear it day and night, winter and summer. Great value overall and not as overplayed as Acqua di Gio.

    A Walk in the Clouds. or Fairwell to arms. In a Bottle.

    Azzaro pour Homme by Azzaro

    Got this blindly from marshall's, it was just 15 bucks.
    I'm very impressed, little bit too strong to wear often, but very masculine and my gf loves it!

    Chrome by Azzaro

    I don't get a metallic note from this, just a ctrusy aquatic.
    I'm not the biggest fan, smells like a cheap bathroom product to my nose, but I got so many compliments for this from women that I keep wearing it.

    Jean Paul Gaultier Classique by Jean Paul Gaultier

    Sexy scent in a God-awful bottle but a
    big warning to all of who wants to purchase the E.D.P apply on small doses
    because this is an siliage monster J.P.G
    in almost of his perfumes his motif is his
    signature sinuous curvy female torso like
    he's paying homage to the John Singer Sargent once scandalous portrait Madame X Like the portrait Classique is bold
    sexy and Shocking.

    It opens with Tuberose almost in a tradition of amarige but classique is
    creamier muskier and amberish drydown
    which is pervasive and the main basis
    for this is scent the only thing that is
    standing in the way into becoming a masterpiece is the tacky flacon and the
    cloyish aspect of the scent, for a while
    to does to get overwhelming and and gives headaches but way better then the other J.P.G Creation Ma dame that smells
    like dish soap so Jean Paul Gaultier
    is a flawed genius.

    Polo Blue by Ralph Lauren

    For me, this is the perfect scent for summer. I think the cucumber makes it for me. It becomes a very pleasant fresh scent without smelling like a bathroom product or axe deodorant.

    Brit for Men by Burberry

    This is such a pleasant smell, but I wish it held up better and more complex in the drydown. Incredible top notes though.

    Design by Paul Sebastian

    This has a Strong Siliage of Civet
    it just dominates this perfume it has a
    Waxy Lipstick kind of a scent it drowns
    out the other scents.

    Délices de Cartier by Cartier

    The first blast of Sour Cherries and
    in a couple of minutes it dries down to a scent of milky Musk and Vanilla.
    this has to be the one of the most unsual perfumes this and Jean Paul Gautier MA Dame in my collection.
    this frangrance is not for Everybody.

    Bleu de Chanel by Chanel

    I really wanted to like this one. Smelled incredible to me on paper. I thought this would be my new signature scent. Then I tried it on my skin and it smelled disgusting for some reason. I don't understand why but that happens with some smells (like Mugler Cologne as well).

    Initial by Boucheron

    At first you get the scent of orange
    wrapped with spices and warm amber
    Cozy fragrant Imaginings of a Old Victorian Fireplace on christmas eve
    a rocking chair rocks back and forth
    comly listioning to the sound fire
    Crakling Misoltoe on top of the archway
    faint sounds of tinkling music boxes playing. or in the scene from The Age of Innocence when Madame Olenska and Newland Archer suble erotic chemisty

    or russia Before the revolution when
    Tsars ruled with Ambered walls decked with fine paintings of great masters
    Leo Tolstory with his Anna Karenina
    Onegin wondered though
    St Peter's Squaire Like a Person without a soul after his Doomed love for Tatyana. the sweet Soft sounds of the balakas playing. this was a world
    before Lenin Stalin and Communist Regime
    Distroyed it Forever.

    these are the thing i imagine when i wear this. a bittersweet Sojourn in a bottle.

    Paper black Chinese Caligraphy on the paper beautiful
    exotic dolls with lucious silks and brocade Ivory Beaded curtians Hanging
    in hallways incense buring. the pharmacist with his long gray beard
    in blue silk costume.
    conjors up to me A medicine show of the wild west.

    Pour Un Homme by Caron

    Lavender conjures up many myths and legends Lavender was the favorite of
    queen Elizabeth I it cures insect bites
    it calms the nerves and helps you sleep
    the floral it's self inspired artists &
    poets.

    it makes me think of a sleepy small
    town in the south of France with a small modest chapel and fields and fields of Lavender with elderly
    townspeople playing cards children playing middle aged women hanging linnen on the line to dry in the warm sun and your walking though these fields obilvisious of the thing around you the scent put you in a trance
    just walking losing sense of time
    and you stop in a middle of the fields lay down and rolling though the hill of lavender and fall asleep.

    Le Mâle by Jean Paul Gaultier

    I used to own this. I think it is beautiful and girls love it. However, I feel like it's not a very masculine smell, and it is so overplayed that I don't want to smell like everyone else.

    L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme by Issey Miyake

    One of those smells that smelled great on paper, but turned into a disgusting mess on my skin, just like Channel Bleu did. Unfortunate...

    Grey Vetiver by Tom Ford

    I find Guerlain's Vetiver to be vile and unwearable, bug-spray like. However, this one is almost a perfect smell to use in the office, very subtle and sophisticated.

    Chergui by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

    I've been testing this now for the second time. The first time, it couldn't captivate me, it was dull. It took me a while to re-test it.

    It's warm and spicy in the opening, very comforting and perfect for winter.
    I kept on thinking that I red a review a while ago that someone was recommanding this for a wedding day.
    This absolutely does not fit for a wedding. I would say a funeral... .

    It misses flowers or something fruity. Normally that can work perfectly, I'm thinking about Le Feu by Issey Miyake or Feminité du Bois or Tentation by Paloma Picasso, the spicy smell. But here I always tend to mix this up with i.e. Miss Dior Chérie or something else that is fruity because it's so plain.

    All I smell after half an hour is incense. Although when I smell it close to my skin or on a piece of cloth, it's nicer, it's the air that it spreads that I don't like.

    I really wanted to like this one.
    Maybe I'm not the right person to wear it.
    I always keep on thinking how I smell to others when this creeps even in my nose for hours. Maybe they think I come from church (and I NEVER go there!):)

    Womanity by Thierry Mugler

    On me, it started out with a really fizzy, sharp and chemical citrus blast (grapefruit? Plus according to my boyfriend, superglue) and settled down into a sweet, milky, and rather nauseating fig that went on forever (and don't get me wrong – I love fig but prefer the greener take on it as opposed to the fleshy/sweet direction). As the fig faded out the famous marine accord became more evident. Rather like Salt Air by Demeter, but less appealing in combination with the icky fig. I appreciate the introductory notes because they were a bit odd compared to other mainstream frags, but that's the most flattering I could say about it.

    Opus I by Amouage

    Cumin is a spice I can't stand, neither in my food nor in a scent, of course. Amouage Opus I is exquisite in the beginning, but morphs into a very obnoxious curry-like concoction after 20 min - at least on my skin. The fragrance lacks balance and beauty. There are so many scents which are not as expensive as Opus I - and smell so much better...
