  1. My collection is locked up away from light and temperature fluctuations. It is always a challenge keeping a large collection preserved and secure.
  2. Nick, with all the liters you have, how do you store them? Do you keep them in their boxes away from all sources of light? What about temperature fluctuation?
  3. Thanks for the feedback as I used this one in high school and I wanted to check it out, but I heard it was very different from the one I used back in high school. Your delineation of it as helped me tremendously. Great " trio"of purchases there btw. Enjoy, mate. Have a great day! Paul H.
  4. I only have a very faint memory of the original that my brother owned 25 years ago. To me, they seem in the same ballpark. The new one opens with a fantastic citrus accord that is similar to a lot of neroli heavy colognes but this one is a touch less dry than normal. After 20 minutes the citrus accord disappears deep into the background and you are left with a dominant combination of nutmeg, cloves and oak moss which is very 80s, very musculine. To me, the drydown is not so leas ant because I am not a fan of these notes at the best of times. And unfortunately projection during the drydown is average. I only tried this one at home so will have to give it a wearing in public to form my final opinion. If it doesn't please me then, it may find itself for sale on the bay.
  5. Nick, does the Armani Eau Pour Homme compare to the original? Thanks, mate. Paul H.

Synthetics vs naturals

by NickZee on 20th April 2017 at 10:27 PM

A natural ingredient is very complex, so some facets will reflect the beautiful door the relevant note is famous for, while other facets will carry bitterness, earthiness and other elements that the perfumer or the user don't want to be there. High quality synthetics address this problem by separating

Do fragrances "Mature" in the bottle? Royal

by NickZee on 3rd January 2017 at 08:39 PM

2) The perfumer will need to overload the volatile topnotes to ensure they are present

any point in reading reviews?

I myself am too lazy in my reviews to achieve this but occasionally I try. I review mainly to keep track of my own thoughts,

Wearing women's fragrances?

In the first case, the masculine/feminine descriptor has no purpose, "wear what you like". In the second case, the feminine/masculine distinction can often be a useful descriptor if it has been carefully considered by the fragrance house. But note breakdowns and ultimately your

TOP 3 most stunning OUDs.

I only own a handful so my top 3 will not be very informative, but I have tested dozens and settled on these usual suspects that reportedly contain the synthetic interpretation of oud but no actual oud. There's no shame in synthetic interpretations IMO, these each benefit from a rich/oily/woody/leathery accent that is attributed to oud.

1. Nasomato Duro - clean masculine woody
