MIA Fragrance Review: Gentleman Eau de Toilette Intense by Givenchy (2021)

by Varanis Ridari on 13th June 2021 at 05:15 AM
Truth be told, I haven't been the biggest fan of the fragrances reusing the "Gentleman" designation from the original Givenchy Gentleman (1974), which the house has at least been gracious enough to keep around (a shocker considering most designers outside the biggest ones have sacked nearly all their legacy masculines by this point), but there have been a few here and there that passed muster. Gentleman Eau de Toilette Intense (2021) proves to be another such example of one that I like,

MIA Fragrance Review: XX Artisan by John Varvatos (2020)

by Varanis Ridari on 9th May 2021 at 06:44 AM
John Varvatos XX Artisan (2020) doesn't really smell like a true part of the contiguous Artisan (2009) line, but rather more like an unused formula for something else dressed up in Artisan wicker and slapped with the same XX anniversary trappings as John Varvatos XX (2020) of the same year. I'm not saying this is bad, but also not saying it's good either, and if post-bankruptcy Varvatos fragrance (now mostly an imprint under direct control of EA Fragrances like Giorgio and Claiborne) has showed

MIA Fragrance Review: Beau de Jour by Tom Ford (2020)

by Varanis Ridari on 20th April 2021 at 04:18 AM
Not a lot has changed between the release of Tom Ford Beau de Jour (2019) as part of the private blend line and Tom Ford Beau de Jour (2020) from the signature range, but the tweak is worth mentioning. Most importantly, the packaging update to more-closely resemble other newer entries in the SIgnature line with the ribbed cylindrical bottle, plus the slightly nicer (but still expensive) price tag, make Beau de Jour as a semi-permanent addition to the masculine line up a bit more appealing for some.

MIA Fragrance Review: Y Le Parfum by Yves Saint Laurent (2021)

by Varanis Ridari on 2nd April 2021 at 12:26 AM
When I smelled Y Le Parfum by Yves Saint Laurent (2021), I fully got what I expected. Everyone in the upper-mid designer space dances to the beat of Chanel's drum, but can't quite master the moves in much the same way because unlike Chanel, they're beholden to corporate overlords that maximize explosive short-term profit growth over long-term sustainability, meaning they can't afford to take the risks or set the trends like Chanel does, but rather will follow marketing data and demographic research

MIA Fragrance Review: Ferragamo Intense Leather by Salvatore Ferragamo (2021)

by Varanis Ridari on 1st April 2021 at 10:58 PM
Ferragamo Intense Leather by Salvatore Ferragamo (2021) is ostensibly for fans of the original Ferragamo Eau de Toilette (2020) from the previous year, so there isn't a ton to say for people who tested that and found it completely unwearable. WIth that in mind, I'll keep my thoughts on this flanker pretty brief because to expand upon it is really just talking about the original pillar and you can read that over at the relevant review for the scent. I guess it's something of a nod to Ferragamo for
