Burberry Brit Homme Limited Edition
Ambré by Baldessarini
I have a sample of Ambré for almost 2 years now, always found it nice but thought I wouldn't like to pay the full price for it. Well, today I found it for ~35$ and instantly bought it.
To be honest, I don't really know what pure amber smells so I can't tell if the name is well chosen, but I'm sure I like this fragrance a lot yet.
Boozy ? Yeah, definitely, but in such a classy way ! It is a warm and soft scent, I feel nothing sharp in this one and that's exactly what I like in a fragrance.
The only letdown is it seems to be quite weak in longevity but... I always feel that with my new fragrances, so I'll have a better opinion about that in 1 month or so.
I'm glad I found this one, some people may find it generic, but in my little knowledge of perfume, I didn't smell something like that often. Very good one to add to my collection.
I found L'Eau D'Issey Miyake Pour Homme and JPG Le Male at Target on clearance. I paid around $25 apiece for 1.36 OZ sprays of each.
very good fragrance. love it.

bleu de chanel
Amazing fragrance for year round use.
I have managed to source an old favourite of mine... the wonderful men's Woody Oriental "Christos" by Greek-Australian designer Christopher Chronis. A scent that was discontinued over a decade ago, it boasts one of the more beautiful glass bottles that I have ever had the pleasure of collecting, in a deep violet hue.
And in keeping with all that is purple in hue, I also bought Guerlain Purple Fantasy.

So I finally caved in to the hype. After GIT, this has probably received the most amount of praise/hype/attention. Hell, it even has it's own section.It wasn't a 100% blind buy, it was more a calculated risk even though my lady friend only gave it a 5 on 10. My reasoning was 1. It's only £45, 2. It's called Pure Malt and I LOVE my whisky. 3. It'll be gone forever and I might as well just give it a go. I hope it lives up to everything it's said to be.
