Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Bruno Acampora - Blu

For some reason Blue reminds me of the Hilary Swank role in the Film Black Dahlia.It reminds me of a nymphoniac that has a bag of dirty and dangerous secrets.Ok maybe i'm exaggerating a bit But the aggresivness of it doesn't help me to think otherwise.This is TUBEROSE.And i like tuberose,and it's fantastic that it has sillage though the staying power is fairly average on me.When …Read more

Fragrances - Caron Paris - Narcisse Noir

I remember spliting the sample with three girlfriends and this one was very different in each one.But it smelled terrific and completely unique on me..In my skin it plays a great game of light and shadow.The notes seem to overlap one another with dirty and clean patches into the main body of scent. The bittter smoky but also green citrus of the start, the perfectly balanced jasmine of the middle …Read more

i thought that i would loveit first because i like all the other Divine scents and because i love dark roses in general.But saly this didn't worked in my skin.My mistake for sure it must be a thing of chemistry,especially after reading the other reviewers praise it so much.It's incredibly heavy on my skin and it suffocates me.Honestly i think it would have a spiritual carachter if it …Read more

The same old stuff of CCP, an ordinary artificial scent targeted for teens and overaged lolitas.The main compount to my nose is in the start heliotrope,the middle part is a not too bad floral bit of hibiscus and after it a highly stinky jasmine spreads it's' beauty 'on a bed of cotton candy vanilla with caramely powdery aspects.I f you like that type of fragrance then go for it.

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Eau d'Italie - Paestum Rose

Oct/27/2007

I'm rteally impressed from what Wyrmiax said.Really Paestum Rose it's like a male simbling to Poussiere de rose.As i had aproblrm with the fruitness of Poussiere this is much more close to my liking but i can really recognise the similarities.The problem with Paestum is the lasting power and the sillage, but still i like it enough so i wouldn't mind let's say a decant.I like …Read more

Oct/27/2007

Bal a Versailles was one of my first introductions on vintage perfumery and it was an absolute success.Now i'm on my third fb and i can't think my fragrance wardrobe without it.I absolutely love it and everytime i wear it people notice.To my nose is extremely modern so i don't want to hear anything about old ladies and the lot...The perfume starts with a very feminine heady honeyed …Read more

Fragrances - Keiko Mecheri - Loukhoum

Oct/27/2007

I have tried almost every Loukhoum scent in the market except AVA LUXE's version and although Keiko Meheri is not very faithful in the original smell of these delightful little desserts it's a very wearable one.It does have exceptional but soft sillage and it does have superb staying power.For me it's a very flirtatious scent although i don't have the need to own it.The floral …Read more

Fragrances - L'Artisan Parfumeur - Passage d-Enfer Eau de Toilette

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/27/2007

This one was really dissapointing. I had really high hopes for it from the notes and the description.I'm extremely sure that it's a thing of personal chemistry because although the first notes are realy adorable after 5 min Passage d'enfer turns soapy at first and later incredibly aftershavey and alcoholic.It smells strangely cheap and sharp.Anyway although the flower that PdE is …Read more

Fragrances - L'Artisan Parfumeur - Fleur de Narcisse

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/27/2007

I'm still slightly undecided about fleur de narcisse partly because i don't believe it deserves the price they asking for and partly because while i was wearing it i couldn't really smell it if i didn't stuck my nose on my palm. The weird thing is that a male friend of mine adore it and call it " the scent of the forbidden fruit" as he found it incredibly …Read more

Fragrances - L'Artisan Parfumeur - Verte Violette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/26/2007

This is more like it.I just reviewed La Haie Flerie, a very strong scent and now Verte Violette one of the usual fast dissapearing acts of the company. This is a ghost perfume.It doesn't last more than 15-20 min. on my skin ...But what a ghost!!!How beautiful it lingers with it's fragile and haunting beauty...The opoening notes with the green fruitiness from the raspberry leaves, the …Read more
