Portrait of a Lady by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

Lasts for about 14 hours, the last of which as skin scent, pretty powerful rose and incense combo, very unisex and not just for ladies, it has a kinky and very dark vibe, one of the best outings fro Malle for some serious sillage it takes some serious spraying!

Imitation Man by Amouage

great and interesting leather, beast mode sillage and duration, a real homage to the 80's golden era of Alpha male powerhouses, this will make your hair chest grow and you will need a golden medallion on an open shirt and a selection of stereo 8 cartridges for your car stereo system!

London by Tom Ford

The rubber and stale steel,the brakes screechings
of the London Tube
late 80's
the old trains left this rubber raunchy
very singular smell captured here
the scent in itself not so much wearable
low persistence and low sillage
interesting concept
and a spectacular reproduction of one of the most original smells
the smell of London Underground
when it was a public company

Figment Man by Amouage

Wet soil and deep musky animalic notes.
Polarising to say the least, the opposite of a safe office scent.
Some said it smells of wet soil, others "wet dog" or "mould"...the choice it's up to you.
I blindly bought it and I don't regret it, this really a cutting edge for Amouage, you may love it!
Most likely you will hate it!
It's truly animalic and I really like it!
p.s. in the blistering sun this beast changes a bit of its shape a must try for deep enlightment!

Gucci Guilty Absolute pour Homme by Gucci

animalic leather with outstanding sillage, would not expect Gucci coming out with such a cutting edge juice! Surely not bland, their best outing in ages!!!!!

Pachuli Kozha by Nishane

it has a bit of that Mazzolari Lui kind of vibe, more sensual and refined though. Animalic leathery patchouly.
Worn today in serious heat, it's magical rises in air condtioned ambients, not for the faint of nose!
Serious longevity, serious sillage1
I love it!
