    Tiziana Terenzi - Afrodite

    Smells like.... a regular lotion smell plus some citrus. Then add a dose of fruity shampoo.

    It's not bad, but it smells.. um.. like commonplace smells you're used to amalgamated together.

    Hm.

    Edit: Okay, the drydown is a good bit better. Not full bottle worthy for me, but it's not bad. A nice vanilla / cocoa aspect comes out.

    Miller Harris Le Jasmin
    WOW! The opening is an unexpected sharp blast of fresh bergamot, very natural and jolting. It eventually settles into a soft green floral jasmine with that bergamot just peaking through. There's also just a hint of skank that somehow reminds me of L'Air de Rien.

    I am gonna wear the hell out of Le Jasmin this summer.

    Versace Man (2003)

    A very smooth tobacco scent with a greenish edge. Descriptions had me expecting something heavier and stranger (references to "grape soda" in reviews had me expecting a bit of Lalique Hommage, but whatever grape note is present here is fairly subdued). This blends in pretty well into the designer landscape of the past few decades. It's more interesting than some, and unusually well-blended for designer fare, but it's not especially complex or arresting. Kinda like some of the better Varvatos fragrances it's enough to get a slight nod but doesn't offer enough depth to sustain fascination.

    I've been wearing it for about two hours now. Not sure if I have much of an opinion so far. It's just there. I don't dislike it, but it's not doing anything to win points either.

    Yessir. I have Intenso, which is pretty damn good, IMO. And the overwhelming majority here seems to think that the D&G Pour Homme is so much better, so I went ahead and grabbed a bottle. It was a TJ Maxx $25 bottle, so no big deal. Just kind of a let down.

    This is a good one. A woody scent with a subtle sweetness. Been smelling my arm for the past 5 hours. Definitely on my list of fragrances i will explore further.

    Versace Dreamer.
    Pretty tidy - definitely see that it is in similar vein as Lalique Hommage. Have a feeling this'll grow on me.
    Thinking layering up with Hommage wood (!) be a treat, softening the somewhat polarising opening of Hommage.

    Xerjoff - Jebel

    It's like... jasmine + a lime mint. The amber and carnation might be giving it a spicy feel also?

    Edit: Also smells like there's salt or something in this - kinda throws it off for me.

    Memo - African Leather

    Smells like the nicest hamster cage you've ever smelled.

    lol. Cedar wood chips? And something else that is SO DARN FAMILIAR but I can't quite place it, ugh! Like... Terre d'Hermes or something! Someone help me figure out what it is.

    Edit: oooh, now the cumin is coming out..
    Edit: Don't really see how this is considered a leather frag. Smells like a woody spicy to me. /shrug. Good stuff though.
    Edit: Oo, and sweetness also! Is it true this has been reformulated and is pretty weak now? This is pretty good stuff, though I'll smell like a hamster cage a lot. hah

    L’artisan Bana Banana. Wasn’t expecting much based on fragrantica reviews but to my surprise the banana note actually lasts quite a long time on my skin, probably one of my favourite gourmand fragrances. To me it reminds me of banana flavoured ice cream/dessert.
