    Default Kelsey Berwin Fragrances...anyone??

    Hey guys,
    Has anyone tried fragrances from the Kelsey Berwin line? Apparently, they are all "natural" fragrances, so was just curious...


    Let me know!

    So, I tried Huberta and Zeus...

    Huberta - Has a middle eastern metallic oud kind of a vibe. Almost reminds me of Mancera Gold Intensive Oud.

    Zeus - This one is a total stunner! It smells like a more fruity version of Bleu de Chanel! Performs exceptionally as well!

    So, I have been trying to track Zeus down after seeing your review on YouTube. I think it came under a honourable mention or something. Anyway, It came in this morning and when I tried it, it instantly gave off vibes of Invictus and Lacoste White. Personally, i'll rather have Zeus than any of the other two. It's cheaper, lasts longer and actually smells better. However, I don't get any of the 'natural' vibes it is alleged to have. For a video idea, I suggest you do a smell off with Zeus, Sauvage, Invictus and Bleu de Chanel EDT, and of course, with Dani as the guest nose

    Thanks, but was looking for the manufacturer or "House" website, not an online retailer selling the scents.

    Update - found it but shows account suspended - http://kelseyberwin.com/

    Hahaha!! It's the opposite for me. Apart from the fact that the fragrance itself is lovely, the name 'Kelsey' reads like the name of one of my favourite upcoming country/pop singer... Lol

    Sampled a few of these today. Huberta smells just like Lattafa - Night Oud. Nice, but has an alt-sweetness that gets annoying after a couple of hours. Zeus was very nice - a little dusty, a little fruity, but modern man goodness. Trudie Sport and Cool Blue Man were a little generic. Nice, but generic.

    Overall solid fragrances, well worth the $10-$15 USD being charged at Beautyspin. The only unique one is Huberta, but it is only unique if you're not experienced with some of the cheaper Arab houses, such Rasasi, Lattafa, etc.

    Really need to get my nose on Huberta. I have given Zeus a few wearings and my conclusion is that at the top, you get Lacoste white on fruit steroids, in the mid, you get Invictus and in the dry down you get Joop Homme Wild. But Zeus has better longevity that all the mentioned frags. I like it, but I don't love it. But for the price, who cares? it's definitely worth the buy.

    Zeus seems to be the better one, according to the threads but it is not easy to find.

    Sorry for the refloat but is it true?
    I just bought Zeus and it says "MFG: 4 . 2016" It was made 5 months ago.

    It's a good fragrance smells like Invictus in a natural way very pleasant. Hope they still making this kind of natura scents.

    It seems that I do recall hearing that they did indeed go out of business. But......I thought it was quite a bit before your bottle was made chuso?! The mystery continues............

    At the very least, Beautyspin stopped carrying them, which was how most in the US were getting them. I was able to snag all 4 offered in the winter.

    Zeus is certainly a fruitier version of BdC that dries down to an Invictus kind of aura.

    Everyone have different skins.... But I have the zeus and it highly being compared to invictus.... But for some reason I get better performance on invictus than the zeus even though the zeus is in parfum.... That's on me though... It's worth a buy if u find it on a cheap price..... I paid 20 for it.... But I see it going higher time to time

    I actually want to try this out with hope that it will be a nice oud fragrance... I wish there was someone out there who owns it and is able to kindly give us an insight on what to expect.

    I saw that last night and order a bottle since it was inexpensive. I picked-up a bottle of Zeus a while back and..well, it's okay but nothing special; it kind of has that TJ Maxx feel to it so I'll probably give it to one of my nephews since I don't wear it ofen and it has a more youthful feel to it. Anyway, I'll report back next week after my bottle arrives.

    My bottle of Midnight Oud arrived recently and it was a disappointment. Midnight Oud starts off as a medicinal oud (which I certainly don't mind) but this one smelled cheap and synthetic...and it was very soft and had a metallic vibe to it. Moreover, it opened with a clear note of hairspray which I found to be very similar to the opening of many Al-Rehab spray fragrances. Honestly, it smelled very similar to $5 bottle of a 50ml Al-Rahab spray scent. Within 30-minutes the soft medical oud note is almost entirely gone and after 60-minutes I was left with a lightly sweet, lightly woody, lightly fresh-spicy skin-scent with a generic note of hairspray lingering in the background. It's not bad...but I got a bunch of these $5 Al-Rahab scents that are already in the ballpark...not worth the $20 I paid for it but you be the judge.

    Quickly becoming one of my favorite YT reviewers, and tells me all I need to know about this house (or at least "Midnight Oud" in particular).

    I own Huberta. I find it very similar to Lattafa - Night Oud, but perhaps toned down a bit.

    Only know and own Zeus- quite pleasantly smelling and well performing for its price, in fact, the kind of fruity EDP that also resembles CK One Shock, Obsession Night and other recent sweeter CK fragrances, aside from the similarities with BDC and Invictus noticed in previous posts, lasting quite long with few sprays.

    Will also try to test and then also share some impressions of other fragrances by this house.
