    Acqua di Selva by Visconti di Modrone

    Thumbs Up for the Rich, Green, Oily Original Configuration. (by Victor)
    I still have a bottle stored safely from decades ago that smells terrific.
    Yes, it is powerful, Yes it is Green and Yes it is Masculine-that's what I like about it. It's unapologetic in it's projection.
    But...
    Big Neutral for the New Formulation.
    It's light and a skimpy shadow of it's former self.
    Poof! Within minutes it's gone. It is Watered Down, Transparent and cheap.
    So sad Really.
    Find an original bottle produced by Victor for the best formulation of a classic.

    Aqua Fahrenheit by Christian Dior

    This one is a winner. You can wear this anytime of the year. It has the original Fahrenheit DNA but without that gasoline vibe everyone mentions. I catch the grapefruit in this. Very well made. Don't cheat yourself, treat yourself.

    Boss Soul by Hugo Boss

    A bit of a synthetic-sharp start develops into what initially appears to be another peppery-fresh and bland scent, but after about 1/2 hour the drydown gains in depth, adding a wood note that is supported by a bit of vetiver, musk and tonka-based sweetness that distinguishes it from
    similar products with little personality.  On me it never is really that sweet but quite smooth with a touch of balancing brightness.  Overall quite acceptable, with a decent longevity of about three hours.  One of Boss's more convincing creations.

    cK One Shock for Him by Calvin Klein

    Well, well, well :) I see people are coming around to ththisfragrance. It's a good thing too because, it's simple, this is a work of art. I saw a review that stated that the bottle design was ugly. I mist disagree. I like it, personally. It reminds me of my favorite holiday: Halloween. When I smell this, I think of Halloween and I feel Halloween. The name is fitting; I feel shocked when I smell this and it energizes me and puts me in a confident and romantic state of mind.

    WHAT IT SMELLS LIKE: cherries, vanilla, tobacco (all three blended ABSOLUTELYPERFECTLY TOGETHER)
    PROJECTION: strong until the 3rd hour
    LONGEVITY: I've pulled 14 hours out of it ONE TIME but most of the time its 4-5 hours

    Rogart by Molton Brown

    I'd have to disagree with the review below. I find this to be a very robust, quite masculine, spicy-woodsy, slightly earthy scent, sweetened by maple syrup but not to a point where it enters the realms of sickly or overtly feminine.

    I would agree with the comments regarding good projection however, and also in the sense that I too, love it.

    3# Nota Di Viaggio - Ciavuru d'Amuri by Meo Fusciuni


    An Ode to the wonderful floral note of jasmine, an indolic, fruity, green and sensual jasmine. I feel soon the impression to detect a figgy presence in the middle of the introductive citric/aqueous and fizzy blast, a sort of figgy-lacteous vibe which creates a natural link with the indolic and botanic floral note of jasmine, in order to elicit an extremely sensual and almost delightful and edible sort of attar. The lacteous figgy temperament counteracts the initial sparkling/aqueous feel, fixing down a more dense floral essence. Some faint green/musky accents enhance the general naturalness and i feel so the impression to stand in the middle of an enchanted land full of green hills, immaculate streams and floral yards. The aroma holds on its run sharper and with a well combined jasmine/fig leaves accord till the dry down which is finally less humid, more dusty and overcasted due to a minimal touch of frankincense that dries and balances the wet naturalness of the elements. Unfortunately the sillage is really faint, at least on my skin, and the juice remains shortly projecting along its breve run in the air. I suppose that the really poor lasting power depends on the extreme naturalness of the raw materials and the total lack of synthetic additives. The fragrance is more properly feminine in my opinion although could be confortably worn by men at once.

    1# Nota di Viaggio - Rites de Passage by Meo Fusciuni

    1 # Nota di Viaggio, the first one of the "fragrances inspired by travels" trilogy, is basically a cleverly appointed vetiver and prevalently a vetiver/patchouli citric combo with some green/aromatic trails and a final spicy/incensey aura (and not properly in my humble opinion a straightforward transparent incense). The note of vetiver is by soon on the edge while the patchouli comes out heady at distance, sharper and with a well balanced incensey/peppery dustiness around. The note of vetiver, for the main part of the trip, is not earthy/rooty (apart just a bit in the course of the first minutes) but smooth (despite the spiciness) and almost indolic/balmy because of the notable implementation of soothing balsams as benzoin. The initial combination of hesperidic notes (lemon/orange/bergamot), exotic spices (apart pepper i suppose nutmeg or cloves), grapefruit, woody/floral notes, ylang-ylang, may be a touch of smoke and smooth natural vetiver, reminds me soon the vintage Guerlain Vetiver which i used to enjoy at least twenty years ago. There is some spicy pungency around counteracting the smoothness in this phase centered over an exotic and natural starring vetiver. The aroma in this initial stage is indeed refreshing, citric and wet, so botanic and boise, heaven at morning. The more the aroma evolves the more the initial humid radiancy starts to fade towards a more intimate and dry woodsy/patchouli with the incensey Meo Fusciuni's landmark trail, which is anyway not dominant but ambiental. The aroma is peppery till the end and absolutely comforting, you can catch the vetiver also along the drier woodsy/patchouli dusty dry down. 1 # Nota di Viaggio is a well made and balanced day time/office juice with a touch of dreamy exoticism. Close to the skin and averagely durable. My positive rating is apponted because of the guaranteed attractiveness and extreme naturalness of the aroma, ( despite i find that a boise' vetiver/patchouli combo with hints of spicy/incensey dust is an olfactory way longly walked since now by the perfumers all over the world). Along the first part of the development 1#Nota reminds me a lot Vetyverio Diptyque, another versatile hesperidic/green vetiver in which the final dustiness is more spicy than incensey and the note of patchouli is a bit less pronounced than in here. I detect also some similarities in the dry down between 1#Nota and the new 2011 (darker than 1#Nota, more spicy and less citric) Sombre Negra Yosh, which is a more wearable (less smoky/gassy/rubbery than the previous 2010 formula) version which with the Fusciuni'one shares a vetiver/patchouli/frankincense/pepper/citrus/spices accord.

    David Beckham Instinct by Beckham


    I have effectively to agree with many previous reviewers, DB Instinct is a more than decently appointed fragrance, a dark and sharp vetiver/patchouli with the masculine final touch from the ambergris, a variegate citric opening and a dynamic, vaguely minty and sporty anisic accord. There is an undeniable peppery/spicy dustiness around and a virile citric vibe (i feel an initial strong bergamot and a final shadowy orangy temperament). I don't smell a subdued patchouli which is indeed really stressed and the vetiver is fluidy and darkened by the ambergris/spices/patchouli accord. A really virile and versatile juice with a certain level of elegance.

    Gigli Man by Romeo Gigli


    I've tested recently the Gigli Man new formulation (green color of the fragrance) and i'm not exactly sure whether it's the new version of this one or what else, just can write i found it overly detergent, far light years from my favorite (and horribly disappeared) Romeo Gigli by Romeo Gigli. Today this pale version is a poor laundry/detergent (finally soapy) tea/chamomile (probably the bamboo effect) with musky accents, some woods, an orangy vibe and a huge quantity of spices as cinnamon and cloves i suppose. Frankly nothing special.

    Viva by Fergie

    I've often thought Fergie to be gorgeous in a very strong, masculine way. The same could be said about her new perfume for Avon. I've been wearing the eau de parfum for about four hours now, and it's settled into a warm, lavender-herb scent that one would have to be close to notice. I would spray this on my bedsheets if I wanted to make a man jealous. Or, if I really liked him, I might just give him the bottle.

    Theorema by Fendi

    It's really true, the time makes worse everything. After the orrible new Fan di Fendi Pour Homme (2012) i was smitten by a great serendipity, the old Fendi Theorema (1998), an amazing surprise. Elegant and erotic. Creamy and bold at once (it's not so easy in my opinion). Really an interesting floral/oriental, warm, highly spicy and enveloping. You can detect a sort of spicy and balmy orange/patchouli combo with a wonderful soapy ylang-ylang-rose trail. I detect the pepper and the yummy spiciness in general (cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, may be cumin). The aroma is absolutely unisex and delightful. The patchouli is the king, an ambery and comforting spicy/patchouli surrounded by balsams, light woods and soft musks. The real secret of this fragrance? In my opinion the secret is a sort of sensual acidity (similar to the one i detect in Costume National Scent Intense) which is absolutely erotic-carnal and "sweaty" but attractive in its spicy magnetism. It's an hard to find gem which i recommend everybody to dig around if possible. I'm going to buy a bottle as i can.

    2# Nota di Viaggio - Shukran... by Meo Fusciuni

    First impression: an exotic Mojito reminiscence about my trip in Cuba or about many many aperitifs near the shore in the southern seaside resorts in summer time. Minty, citrusy (mostly lemony) and aromatic. In a very short while a sort of tea/chamomile brewage expresses its claims inside the round of a really natural but too much "un-complex" concoction really pleasant for the lovers of the sparkling/fresh (almost fizzy) eau de cologne type of classic juices. Frankly i don't catch expressely the tobacco although in the dry down the aqueous feel recedes a bit leaving the stage to a sharper and faintly rooty/smokey aromatic vibe. The lasting power and the sillage are really poor on my skin and this element disapponts me a bit. Minimalistic. Well made but effectively unpretentious.

    Wood & Spices by Montale

    I love this one. I bought it after first sample from a small perfume shop in Venice. It's sweet and has depth. I just go easy on the trigger since it's potent. It was my wife's favorite as well of the ones I sampled that day.

    Pétroleum by Histoires de Parfums


    Petroleum is unique. This creative masterpiece deserves all the hypes that just a fragrance destined to become a cult one is worthy to receive. I needed to wait a long time before finally testing a juice that intrigued me since when i've heard about its inception. This fragrance is conceptually futuristic but arcane in the olfactory effects, extremely modern and deeply retro at once. I would talk about a gasolinic and ozonic aoud-amber-patchouli concoction. At the first sniff i'm in a while teleported back in to an obscure ambience of my childhood, probably my old aunt's bedroom, a shadowy, stuffy, musty, vaguely polluted and claustrophobic place full of wallpapers, old wardrobes, stored furs, leatherwears, smell of naphthalene and fuggy air. I smell on my wrist a potpourri of leather, mothballs, floral deodorants, detergent, moquettes, old velvets, boot polish (i detect indeed in this phase a vague reminiscence about by Kilian Pure Oud) and aldehydic grandma colognes. The first part of the development is medicinal, citric (mostly orangy) and vaguely spicy/earthy with its well calibrated dose of petrol, gasoline and high quality aoud while in a second phase the stark aroma tames down becoming an absolutely velvety, mysterious and vintage rosey/ambery wake with musky accents. In this phase you can effectively detect some airy/ozonic/mineral presence in the blend, the touch of genius which, while enhancing utterly the mystery of amber with its salty aftertsmell, introduces a lighter salty/sweet vibe that pushes up in the air the rosey/velvety ( spelaean and metallurgical at once) trail. Arcane and modern i write and indeed the final aroma reminds me at once an old stuffy ambience of my past or my latest visit to the dentist (with the typical waiting room medicinal smell jumping to mind). All can i say is that as a lover of weird and experimental alchemies, this evocative and futuristic aroma climbed in a while the highest peaks of my olfactory liking.

    Cèdre by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

    I first got a whiff of Cedre on a trip to London. I'd sprayed about 6 fragrances all the way up both arms and this one stood out as exceptional. Most people that do not like it think it has been given the wrong name, if you are expecting cedar / woody smell, look elsewhere.

    On my skin this is a very sweet sherbet / apple fragrance that settles into a sweet amber musk. A pleasure to wear form the opening to the dry down. Lasts at least 12 hours on me.

    Le Petit Grain by Miller Harris

    Very nice. Reminds me a lot of vintage Monsieur Balmain, which I adore. I believe the vintage Balmain is still cheaper than Le Petit Grain, though a bit more rare. Either way, nice citrus scent.

    Sova by Slumberhouse


    Sova is not an easy fragrance for sure, indeed i would speak about an almost unique fragrance in the worldwide olfactory panorama. Sova is an atmosphere more than a marketed fragrance itself , the mental status of those that escaped out of the abominable megalopolis. This is an arcane smell, the scent of the obscure barns of the northern lands, of the flour mills, the aroma of the spices stores, of the farms full of antique leatherwears, dry barks, drugs, booze, haystacks, seasoned and resinous woods, conserves, heavy stuffs, hops and hay. The beginning is shocking with its dry hay and the bitter tobacco- licorice-piquant spices (cardamom, pimento, nutmeg) accord. The piquancy along the first hour recedes a bit tamed down due the implementation of hints of balsams, honey , beeswax and resins. In this phase a minimal touch of mildness (may be fruity-dry fruits-, may be spicy or boozy) starts to emerge from the abysses of the obscure barns, turning out some leather and animalic facets, probably because of the castoreum, (i detect vaguely the salty/dirty odour emerging from the haystacks in this phase, a whiff smelling about animal, cords and hay). After 5-6 hours of development finally a touch (even minimal and nor without its licorice type of bitterness) of sheer balmy mildness comes out prevalently from the honey/vanilla/cocoa/amber accord in order to express out a more appealing olfactory charm. Extremely comforting, evocative and warm but out of time and just "ambiental". An extremely sophisticated work deliberately appointed with the aim to elicit a sort of raw and "ostensibly un-sophisticated" smell for excellence. Sova is the archetype of the symbolic "anti-fragrance" appointed for the misanthropes of the forest, anti-idols and men of the far lands.

    Labdanum 18 / Ciste 18 by Le Labo


    This fragrance introduces all the olfactory complexity of the resinous note of labdanum, an element "di per se" arousing a multifaceted aroma with diverse facets, some of which are ambery, some incensey, some leathery/musky, some woody, others finally smoky, mellifluous and musty/mouldy. The perfumer creator decided in this case to support each of those nuances with the insertion of many accessorial elements as the musk, animal notes, resins, balsams, sweet-smoky tonka and a spicy patchouli which imprints sophistication and "importance" to the all whole olfactory fatigue. Labdanum 18 is an articulated white oriental. At the beginning for instance i detect the labdanum in its resinous outlook and i smell opposite types of accents, detect at once something detergent, soapy and rediant and something else vaguely smokey in the middle of a sort of ambery and musky general resinous feel, with fuzzy olfactory reminiscences about Ambre Fetiche Annick Goutal, E.Coudray Ambre et Vanille, Le Male Gaultier and Shalimar Guerlain. While at the beginning the aroma is more properly resinous, in the final phase of the development becomes really subtle and sensual even if almost evanescent on my skin. In this stage the scent is feminine in my opinion and really close to the skin (at least the mine). In the central stage the labdanum is overwhelmed by many other elements under my nose and it tends to disguise its substance and hide itself before to appear again in the base. Is properly in the dry down indeed, after some hours of development, that i detect more strictly the labdanum presence in its more stressed airy/boise' (almost incensey and anyway sharper) temperament. In this phase the juice is dry, cool with a touch of birch tar, musky and vaguely talky/eliotropic. An almost edible concoction for the lovers of the heavenly and immaculate ambery/resinous juices.

    Rume by Slumberhouse


    Rume is the Sova's naughty cousin. Both are sort of "country rustic fragrances" of the farm (i mean rustic in the effect but extremely sophisticated in the cause) and either introduce a spicy sort of vaguely bitter kind of accord but where Sova is more introverted, opaque and stressed over an hay-bitter tobacco-piquant spices accord finally tamed by barely mild balsams, Rume is sweeter, less assertive, less dry/stark, more resinous and more sweetly pungent, being centered over a bay leaves/cloves accord with a following burnt sugar dominant sticky temperament produced by the interaction between the huge amount of cloves and the resinous balsams/labdanum (roasted) chord. Where the bitter vibe in Sova is centered over a licorice accord here in Rume the ostensibly similar effect is bitter/sweet and sugary/smokey with all those honeyed cloves blended with balsams. Sova is by soon starker and drier, being all about hay, tobacco and piquant spices finally tamed down by balsams and honey but hardly sweetened and "coloured" while Rume is more aromatic and spicy in a sort of caramellous sweety way. Rume is delicious and evokes some spicy jammy cakes filled with honeyed fruits, dusty sugar and cloves/cinnamon. Another "ambiental" issue from an interesting niche brand able to conjure up in my mind far memories about a rural childhood spent in the middle of the nature in a full contact with animals, natural fruits, spicy meals, obscure barns, haystacks and workers of the land.

    Je Suis Un Homme by Etat Libre d'Orange

    Amazing scent. It opens with exactly the citrus cologne burst you would expect Napoleon to wear (a bit like an Annick Goutal), but then transforms into something completely different. The dry down evolves into something that becomes part of you. It smells at times spicy, some moments animal, and others pure pheromones. This is a great modern take on the colognes of old, and I can see this rapidly becoming a go-to for me.

    L'Eau Froide by Serge Lutens Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido

    I'm probably not the right person to be reviewing this fragrance because I dislike most Lutens' output - too gourmande, heavy, spicy and sweet for me. Though they're always interesting.

    This is not treated like incense usually is at all, it's not spicy, religious and mysterious, it's freezing cold and stark. There's a huge citronellol gust which reminds me of toilet cleaner, along with the mint which I can never cope with in fine fragrance. Also a weird (defiantly non foody) citrus accord (think flash floor-cleaner) which adds to the "industrial bathroom" feel.

    It doesn't smell of anything I've ever come across in nature (not that that's a bad thing) It's completely stark and quite eerie with a weird fresh-air metallic edge (helional?) that really adds to the industrial ambience.

    If someone isolated the accord that makes mainstream men's fragrances so disgusting in that hissy metallic way (is it dihydromyrecenol and calone?) then built a clever sophisticated fragrance round it, it could smell a lot like this...

    Terre de L'Encens by Cloon Keen Atelier

    A lovely silvery mineral incense. It's cool without being stark (l'eau froide *shudder*). I can't detect iris in it all which is a good thing for me because I associate that with powdery old lady fragrances. But I'm guessing the iris is giving it the lovely silvery wood aspect which is mossy and earthy without being wet or loamy. It's very refined, restrained and sophisticated. An isolated windswept shrub in the dunes.

    Nostalgie by Sonoma Scent Studio

    A somewhat ambitious aldehydic floral bouquet in the grand tradition of Patou Joy and Chanel No. 5 sans the ostentation from a bygone era. NOSTALGIE certainly does what it says on the bottle but it does so with some restraint, like a hum of a melody. As much as I enjoy it I have to say I am a little disappointed the more sensual animalics had been left out in the translation, leaving one with the flash and glitter of old world glamour but without the seductive intrigue.

    Kote by Slumberhouse

    Josh Lobb does what he does very well. Kote has the hallmarks of Slumberhouse: sweet, clove, immortelle plus leather, tobacco, bigarade, tonka(?) and maybe a lutensesque lavender. This one has no dissonant notes (like grev, rume, and vikt), which is less challenging but so COMFORTABLE. Slumberhouse ia all about deep, deep coziness.
    I sometimes feel I should sell my 100+ bottles (at least thefall/winter ones), go to Oregon & buy everything this guy's made. Norne, Sova, and Kote are unqualified masterpieces.

    Veni by Histoires de Parfums

    Today i care about the first one of the new trilogy ( of fragrances appointed to set down a reconnection with the powerful natural elements), i mean Veni, namely the reconnection with the element of earth and a new Mr. Ghislain's perspective on the commercial side of the olfactory square. Whatta surprise (and it doesn't mean necessary in a good way)! As an Histoires de Parfums's great admirer i approached this new release expecting to discover a new brilliant work of experimentalism or anyway something more than vaguely classic, obscure, "neo- vintage" or decadent while my serendipity had been about a more common talky, fresh/warm and watery amber/musk fragrance with a widespread spicy sweetness (supported by the implementation of resinous galbanum and caramel). With all the differences of course, this fragrance could be located, in the course of its talky/liquid (sweetish, aromatic, resinous, yet more than vaguely creamy/intoxicating and herbal) beginning, in the same clan with Le Male, Luna Rosa Prada for men, Bogart Pour Homme, Penhaligon's LP No. 9 For Men and could be "conceptually" standing in a second time (when the "sweet talkiness" a bit recedes and a wet, light, sweetly spicy and milky-vanillic woodiness stands out) more properly on the same stage with some common sweetish talky/woody/watery releases a la Borsalino Panama, Ferrari Black, Nomad Crabtree&Evelyn, just vaguely a la more aromatic Rocabar Hermes (just for the spicy/creamy woodiness) etc, (but in some case with a more pronounced woodiness). Frankly Veni doesn't enbody my archetype of favorite smell and i find the aroma utterly boring and already roamed hundreds of times in accordance with the current mainstream taste. Sincerely i detect a too much pronounced final sweet ambery/musky woodiness as common in many recent releases i don't crave for. My neutral rating is confered because of the great Mr. Ghislain's talent and cause the Veni's aroma offers a far less synthetic and bombastic alternative for the lovers of this olfactory theme.

    P.S: testing again the juice on my skin i notice that, in the initial-central phase of the evolution, before the sweet spicy woodiness evolves, several trails conjure me up some Japuir Homme's nuances.(Japuir is more lemony-floral, less spicy but with a commonly appointed usage of balsams and boise notes).

    Harrods Amber by Bond No. 9

    I love Bn9 New York Amber, and reviewed it awhile back. Herrods Amber is the same thing, only a lesser concentration. I confirmed this with a Bn9 Representative. It is still wonderful, the sharp amber saffron and pepper combination is incredible. Save your money and buy the New York Amber at a higher concentration of fragrance.

    Volkamaria by WienerBlut

    Such a beautiful beginning like if i`m waking up from wonderful dream. Melody starts from iris, mandarines and olibanum resin, first "sings" mandarin, then comes iris and then all is left is resin, as a base also sounds bergamont and tonka bean but they dont attract too much attention, they make the scent sound like bass guitar, simply cause without them it wouldnt be so smooky-woody, it would be just floral-fruity light music, so here`s the male voice in this melody. Interesting and unusual. "WienerBlut acquired and cultivated specimens of this plant before actually deconstructing and rebuilding the original recipe."

    Nejma Five by Nejma

    It`s not very good composed scent but ingredient were good. So it starts from fruity top note - grapefruit, then comes bergamot and strong vetiver`s sound. But bergamot and vetiver come at the end with patchouli. And in the heart there`s jasmine, aoud and rose. It must be good after so many beautiful notes. It is probably for someone. But i feel like it lost balance a little. Maybe in other scents this floral accord wood be a great company for woodsy notes, veriver, aoud, patchouli but unfortunately not this time. It is just ok, not much impressing. And i`m sure i won`t even feel it on my skin after hour or so.

    Esvedra by Laboratorio Olfattivo

    ESVEDRA - MYTHS and LEGENDS around this Mysterious and Magical Rock island

    Located off the Southwest coast of IBIZA lies the mysterious rock island ES VEDRA, almost 400 m in height, made of limestone and surrounded by many myths and legends.

    - Some say: - it was the island of the sirens in the Homer epics
    - it was the holy island of TANIT, who came to Ibiza as Phoenician goddess of fertility and heavenly
    mother and became IBIZA’s patroness
    - that specific sacrifices were performed on ES VEDRA in her honor.
    - they saw UFO’s over the island and
    - the IBIZAN Hippies say it is an ancient landing place for ’inter-galactics’.
    - ES VEDRA is the tip of the sunken civilization of Atlantis,
    - part of ES VEDRA was used to build the ancient Egyptian pyramids
    - one can make a wish as soon as the island ES VEDRA comes in sight.In this fragrance opposite notes come together. It`s the first time when vetiver appeares so gentle and soft with powdery musk, lemon and coriander, this spicy note isnt agressive but calm and chilling.. And all together they create a harmony, a melody of notes.
