Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Gourmand Coquin

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/22/2017

Another reviewer said it well that the boozy, rum soaked fruits and the chocolate clash in the opening of this and unfortunately I experienced the same thing. For such an expensive fragrance, and with my experience with other of the higher end of the Guerlain line like Anjelique Noir and Joeuse Tubereuse (both of which I love), I am surprised that this is so poorly blended as to have such a …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Zoologist Perfumes Camel EDP

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/20/2017

You need to like animalic fragrances to like this one because the overall feel is standing next to a real camel in the desert beside a dried fruit stand. There's oud in it too or something very similar that shows up quickly after the initial top notes of sweaty camel subside a bit but the main impression definitely shouts "camel". Many reviewers talk about the dried fruits and …Read more

Fragrances - Thierry Mugler - Cologne Eau de Toilette

Created with Sketch.

Dec/12/2017

Thankfully I received this as a sample because I was on the verge of blind buying it (usually not a good idea). I'm extremely glad I got a chance to try it first because once the short life of bergamot goes away you're left with a dupe of Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino. If you like neroli and want a nice clean cologne for summer this is definitely for you. The scent life was short …Read more

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - L'Instant de Guerlain Eau de Parfum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/29/2017

To echo many other reviews, this fragrance is just plain pretty! It surrounds you with a beautiful aura of magnolia and other white flowers and like a signature piece of jewelry or a scarf, complements I would think most anyone. It's not overly complicated and while I got good projection (2-3 feet), I would like to see a little more longevity. I think it hit the 4 hour mark then it was time …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Imaginary Authors O'Unknown

Nov/29/2017

This one came out to a huge amount of hype in the Vlog world centering around the "unknown" note in the fragrance. I waited in anticipation to try this one considering all the mystery around it.

The notes are: Black Tea, Lapsang Souchong Tincture, Orris Butter, Kyoto Moss, Musk Balsam, Sandalwood, & ??? - the ??? being the unknown.

On my skin it pulled nothing …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Imaginary Authors Memoirs of a Trespasser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/29/2017

To be fair I tested Memoirs of a Trespasser twice along with 4 other fragrances from this line. Applied lightly Memoirs is a basic vanilla with a little smokiness and nothing to write home about. But a decent testing reveals it for what it is: burning tires, burning wood mixed with an average vanilla to somehow smooth it out. This is their most popular fragrance and though it may appeal to those …Read more

Nov/03/2017

This review is for Al Rehab Choco Musk. After reading and listening to glowing reviews of this brand, especially Choco Musk, I shelled out my $6 thinking I'd be getting a nice gourmand for a seriously low price. Instead what I got was a horribly synthetic mess with almost no sillage, very little chocolate and the musk is almost rancid smelling. Although I understand how people rave about …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Xerjoff Modoc EDP

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/16/2017

Xerjoff Modoc is marketed as a high end vetiver-orris cologne for men. After reading many reviews and watching youtubers raving about it, I decided to give it a try. While many, many fragrances can be worn by either women or men, this one I found to be user-masculine. The vetiver was strong, dirty, harsh and overwhelming upon first sniff and the orris root just reinforced that harshness. It …Read more

Fragrances - Etat Libre D'Orange - You or Someone Like You EDP

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/09/2017

What a promising opening and disappointing dry down! The opening is a wonderful millage of citrus and mint that explodes off the skin. 2 minutes later it's still beautiful but wears very close with almost no sillage but still maintains that citrus/mint combination. However, just 10 minutes into the dry down all that remains is a very close spearmint note with the citrus barely there. The …Read more

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Tokyo [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/15/2017

I received a large decant in a swap a number of years ago and it's sat quietly in my fall/winter collection drawer since then. Obviously I didn't realize what I had. Paris-Tokyo has the most beautiful green tea opening I've ever experienced. There is no blast, it's a an enveloping experience, like being gently surrounding by the fragrance not overwhelmed by it. The yuzu fruit …Read more
