Colonia Essenza by Acqua di Parma

First time i came across this one was in 2013 when i bought a suit for my brothers wedding (he was going to marry in Italy). The store also sold some niche fragrances and i tried this one and bought a small bottle.
I didn't use it much because it was then my most expensive fragrance and wanted to save it for special occasions. This summer i thought let's use it more before it goes bad or something like that. It made me love it more and more and so i recently bought a new big bottle.
This is one of the best fresh citrus colognes i have tried and it's longevity is amazing especially on hot summer days. I tried the other ADP Colonia versions but none of them is as good as this one i think. This will always be a regular in my summer rotation. Thumps UP!

Fahrenheit by Christian Dior

I don't wear it as often as i did in yesteryear but i still think it's one of the best fragrances out there. It's so unique and different from all the others out there. A true classic and very versatile one.

Contre Pouvoir by Brécourt

I don't have much experience with reviewing but here we go.
Contre Pouvoir is a light spicey parfum with a citrus and earthy note in the likes of Encre Noire (probably the vetiver??)
First time i sprayed this one on in the store i was immediately intrigued buy it. It was so different from the few fragrances i had. I got a sample to test it and after
a few wearings i went back and got myself a bottle.
Somehow though i don't wear it often now but every time i do i find myself thinking i should wear it more.

Dior Homme Cologne (2013) by Christian Dior

Wanted something more fresh for the spring and summer months and the SA had me smell Homme Cologne. I loved it right away. It's really fresh, almost clean so to say. It has nothing to do with the original Homme.
Works really well in hot weather, haven't tried it in cooler weather but i guess this one works anytime. I wish it would last a bit longer but with a large bottle i don't mind a respray. You also can't overspay this one.

Platinum Égoïste by Chanel

Got a sample last saturday at Douglas and decided to give it a try to the office today.
I'm totally disappointed by this fragrance. It doesn't smell at all, it was like i was wearing nothing! When i sprayed it on i got a whiff that lasted a few minutes and then it was gone. The whiff i got reminded me of some laundry detergent or soap and a vague hint of Cool Water.
Such a disappointment! I will sample the original Egoiste in the future, hope it has a better performance.
