I love perfume, and I love reading what others feel about it, but most of the time the wonderful descriptions go over my head, and I almost feel left out –I just smell perfume. Yet, with Apres l’Ondee I actually get it. It has a cool stillness, like after a thunderstorm when the clouds part and rainbows appear. It’s an exquisite moment captured with the delicacy of a watercolour. Lovely.

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Djedi [DISCONTINUED]

Feb/13/2010

There is something dark and strange about Djedi. It has an almost solemn quality, like something being burnt in a temple. It's smokey incense rises over a rich leathery bass, which has all of the "thickness" associated with old Guerlains. However, the customary vanilla is nowhere to be found, but given the dry nature of the composition, the almost sweet facet of the civet is as …Read more

Fragrance - CHANEL - Pour Monsieur

Feb/11/2010

It would be so easy to pass Pour Monsieur by, as it might seem like just another traditional mens cologne. However, on closer examination it reveals itself as one of the most beautiful classic fragrances on the market. It's a very understated chypre, with a bitter-sweet base of oakmoss and woods contrasted with the citrus top. While that might not seem particularly exciting, the quality of …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Vero Profumo Onda parfum

5.0

fromJasta

Jan/29/2010

Onda is an unusual fragrance that juxtaposes the dry greenness of vetiver with a no-holds-barred animal base. I have never come across anything like it, although the base did remind me of the late dry down of Amouage Gold for men, although Onda is almost startling by comparison. Over a soft sweet note of decay, there is a pungent brutal smell of some savage animal. With the untamed raw smokey …Read more

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Vol De Nuit Evasion [DISCONTINUED]

May/11/2009

With all the talk about what has been going on at Guerlian since LVMH took over, I didn't really expect too much from VdN Evasion, but as I was in Paris I couldn't pass it up at the airport. When I got home I was delighted to find a fragrance that is pure Guerlain. I like the original Vol de Nuit, and while this fragrance smells very different, it resembles it in character. Both …Read more

Mar/21/2009

On my search for my favourite perfume, I have bought hundreds of bottles over the years. Many times I find something and fall for it, only to get bored, or find the quality lacking after prolonged exposure. I have to admit that I all but ignored Chanel for a long time, but have now come to admire the house greatly for the wonderful combination of quality and elegance that makes up their best …Read more

When I started using this cream I noticed that my skin felt very firm, and to me it looked much better in the mirror than it did before. After a few months people started to tell me how well I looked, so I doubt it was a case of the emperor's new clothes. I had previously used other products of course, and some of them were very good, but this cream gives me that little bit extra, so …Read more

Fragrances - Aramis - Tuscany Per Uomo For Men

Tuscany is one of the greatest '80s fragrances. It is a wonderful woody spicy blend with a fantastic and unmistakable presence. Luckily it is not so ubiquitous that everybody knows what you are wearing. Let's hope this is never discontinued.

Fragrances - CREED - Royal English Leather

5.0

Mar/06/2009

This is a great leather fragrance, and probably my favourite Creed. It is very dark and there is no attempt to tone it down like many other leather fragrances, although it dries down into a lighter and sweeter fragrance, with a touch of opulence. Layered with Millesime Imperial it is wonderful.

I like this fragrance quite a lot, although there's an aquatic opening note that I'm not quite sure about. Overall, it is a very pleasant, cool and laid back type of fragrance that could be worn by anyone, in any situation. Another great quality it has is that it can be layered with other Creed fragrances to create a custom blend. I now only wear it in combination with Royal English …Read more
