Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Madini - Nile

Mar/17/2011

Talisman describe this as a dark and oriental spicy boquet - well the spice I get but the darkness not - it smells like baked green apple with at least the main part of the cinnamon exchanged with clove. It's very nice balanced between the jucy green baked fruit and spice, a good foody that is not too heavy or too spicy or to sweet, a perfect autumn scent for those with a less sweet tooth …Read more

I'm a big Madini fan, but mostly I wear their Azehar, as I'm a hardcore orange blossom lover, and Azehar is one of my very favorite orange blossom / neroli scents (Azear is the strongest & headiest true OB I know). But lately i've found interest in more strange and odd scents, believing oud is the object of my seeking - I don't know oud very well, but I think it it is …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Lagniappe Oaks - Wisteria & Lace

Mar/04/2011

I dont know how Wisteria smells i real life, or how it is manufactured in perfume, but this is a fresh, slightly creamy floral, a little minty-ish to my nose, and that is no drawback - it's an easy to like & enjoy day-light smell, and the cool mint suits the composition well. It's subdued and natural and fresh - and a kind of stylish too - much more natural & better than …Read more

Fragrances - Andy Tauer - L'Air du Desert Marocain by Andy Tauer

Jan/07/2011

L'Air du Desert Marocain starts with a pine-y green twig note, and that part is very promising and nice, but very soon it morphes into a warm, dry smell that suits its name - I get sweet smelling wood burning in a hot, dry place - or at least the smells of this idea - it smells very smokey sweet & dry in the sense of not wet. Nice & interesting because the smoke is very realistic …Read more

A sample of this has been around for a while and getting no attention, and trying it again I had in mind a saleslady that told me one of L'Artisans scents was created to resemble the smell of a circus. Maybe that's the explanation for why the most dominant smell in Dzongkha to me this time is ... horsepoo! And I like it! It's actually smelling good - interesting and good, and not …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Madini Alma de Alma

Dec/22/2010

I'm a big Madini fan - not that I love everything they make, but some things they make I love so madly. Alma de Alma is one of my very favorites - it's sooo rich and smooth, and fresh and refined at the same time. It's definitely a resinous / balsamic scent - and ambers is not my favorite category of scents, but my interest for these kind of scents has grown after getting to know …Read more

It´s my son´s birthday today (yes, he´s born 9/11 and I was out buying lamb chops when he called me and told about the terrible news) – he has been using Jean Paul Gaultier´s «Le Male» since he was 17 and I knew he was out of it. I didn´t necessarily want to buy this but was looking for something similar. But I couldn´t find anything – there are nothing similar to this out there, it´s actually a …Read more

Aug/22/2010

This was one of my first parfumes; I wore it when I was 20. It was very interesting to find it again – and read all the reviews about it. I remember I never bought it because I found it dirty or sexy or something like that – I bought it because it was the only fragrance I could find & stand when I run out of L´Heure Bleue (and I wanted something different), and decided on this because I found …Read more

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Devita Solar Body Block 30

Jul/02/2010

I love this sunscreen – it is rich and fluffy and feels like velvet on skin - it’s not “short” and sinks in too fast, but lubricates well, still the finish is quite matte. I mostly use it on my face (on body now and then only if parts of my body have started to get burned but mostly I don’t spend that much time in sun), and since I do want some tan also on my face I use just a tiny bit over a …Read more

Fragrances - Dolce&Gabbana - Light Blue Eau de Toilette

May/01/2010

I like Light Blue. It’s one of the scents I can pick out in a crowd, and for years I always had to ask women what they were wearing when I noticed the scent. Now I have learned it’s Light Blue. I’m an orange blossom lover, and even if orange blossoms is not listed in this I perceive it as a well done chemical orange blossom scent – it must be the citrus (lemon) combined with sweet flowers …Read more
