    Default Another sniffing marathon with quick notes

    Hugo Boss

    Boss Bottled – ok
    Boss Bottled Night – Wonderful, very similar to Armany Code – sample!!! :-D



    Aramis

    Natural Spray (I assume it’s the original) – :-( too potent & overwhelming, didn’t like it. The man that comes to mind is one that wants the attention of everyone in a mile radius, and has no sophistication to do it more subtly (sorry, Aramis fans out there!)

    Impecable – boring, smells like nothing, the TOTAL opposite of the original Aramis

    Aramis Gentleman’s Collection:

    Tuscani per Uomo - :-) sample!!!

    Havana – really great and different, but not for me

    Life - :-) sample!!!!

    Always – aquatic, not bad at all. Sample :-)

    900 – :-( not for me

    New West – really not bad! Sample! :-)

    JHL – not for me

    Devin – smells like a stable: hay and horse poo. Considering, is not bad – it’s actually interesting and nice, in a stable sort of way. (But not for me.)



    Vivienne Westwood – Naughty Alice: boring on my first sniffing a month ago; this time I liked it better. (Maybe I just want to like it because of the name.) Sample! :-)



    Vera Wang

    (before smelling anything, I already had preconceptions based on the brand name. No idea who Vera Wang is, but I don’t like the ring of the name; she sounds older (late 50’s), sophisticated in a very pretentious way, old-fashioned. Must find out who she is, to have a fairer idea!)

    - Vera Wang for Women – boring

    - Vera Wang for Men - :-(

    - Princess – nice at first, but it’s a little too soft… with a whisp of sugar. Maybe sample, or maybe sniff it again sometime.

    - Preppy Princess – too similar to everything else out there :-/

    - Rock Princess – fave of the princess bunch. :-) Sample!

    - Bouquet - :-) really must get some!! Bigger sample for this one. Too similar to Acqua Fresca. Sprayed some on my wrist and it remained nice.



    Bvlgari

    - Rose Essentielle – not bad for a rose scent! Very soft. Sample! :-)

    - Pour Femme – boring

    - Omnia (all 3: Crystalline, Green Jade and Amethyste) – boring

    - BLV EDP II – maybe sample

    - Pour Homme Soir - :-/ don’t like

    - Aqva Pour Homme - :-/ not bad, not great. Very salty. I much prefer Aqua Marine.

    - Aqva Marine Pour Homme - :-) verdinho (light green), fave from Bvlgari so far. Sample!

    - Man – not for me

    - Jasmin Noir – not what I’m looking for

    - Jasmin Noir (per man) - :-( not too bad, but…

    Default Re: Another sniffing marathon with quick notes

    And more! (These 2 posts were actually the result of 3 trips to the store. I know, I know - still too much perfume at once!)


    Prada

    - Amber Woman - :-( too spicy
    - Amber Men – reminds me of tia Ismelta's house
    - L’Eau Ambree – not for me
    - Tendre for Women – spicy, not for me
    - Infusion D’Iris (parfum) – not for me
    - Infusion D’Homme – not for me
    - Infusion de Tuberose – a bit nice, but not for me
    - Infusion de Vetiver - :-) sample!!! Very different, I feel like eating it!
    - Infusion de Fleur d’Orange – pleasant, but it reminds me of old people's house smell. Tia Ismelta's house again.


    Thierry Mugler

    - AMEN - :-( WAY too spicy!
    - BMEN - :-( less spicy than AMEN, but still bad
    - Alien - :-) pleasant, maybe sample


    Givenchy

    - Play (for her, pink bottle) - :-) get a little sample. Not as nice as plain Play, but has its own appeal.
    - Play (purple bottle) – nice, but I prefer the original Play
    - Play - :-) definitely a sample!!! This brings back a memory… something from O Boticario, from when I was around 12-13 years old. MUST get some!
    - Play Intense – not really the same style as the original Play… :-/ (I thought, perhaps the same thing, only more intense. But nah.)
    - Summer Vibrations – light, boring, maybe sniff it some other time


    Comme Des Garçons:

    3 (transparent bottle) - :-/
    Wonderwood - :-) Fantastic wood!!! Sample!!!

    Gardenia - :-( Yuk! Nothing like MOR or Jo Malone!
    Eau de camille - :-(
    Quel Amour! - :-(
    Eau de Chardette - :-) Like it. Different.
    Ninfeo Mio - :-) smell it some other time. Like it.
    Petite Cherie (blue lace – for boys???) – like it! :-)
    Petite Cherie - :-) pretty good
    Les Nuits d’ Hachien – re-sniff some day. Spicy, but maybe in a good way.
    Mandragore - :-(
    Grand Amour - :-(
    Vanille Exquise - :-( - smells like vanilla extract

    2nd sniffing notes:

    Costume National Scents - Gloss - definitely get it, very sweet and pleasant! :-D

    This is me going to a store, smelling everything until my nose practically falls off, meanwhile scribbling quick notes to register my 1st impressions on likes/dislikes. (I thought this was obvious?)

    That part was obvious. I just wasn't sure what sort of replies were expected.
    :-) ?
