#fragrancereviews #fragrancereviewer #parfum #smellyarmy I ordered some new business cards. I don’t really go and meet people to give them too much but I’m looking to change that! What do you think?

#sotn #fragrancereview #fragrancereviews #boisduportugal #newyorkintense #nicolaiparfumeurcreateur #smellyarmy @nicolaiparfums Luca Turin believes New York Intense by Nicolai has restored the former glory of the original New York fragrance from 1989. He also had good things to say about the very similar Bois du Portugal (1987) from Creed but concluded that New York is better. Both feature a delightful green bergamot opening with a smooth and classy lavender and woods base that is masculine, mature and timelessly elegant. Have you tried both and if so which do you prefer?

#sorn #fragrancereview #fragrancereviews #sportdepacorabanne #vintagefragrance #smellyarmy When the weekend comes there’s nothing like Sport de Paco Rabanne to make a man feel good! Lime, mint, pine, oakmoss and patchouli combine for a truly invigorating masculine scent like no other. Rosendo Mateu’s 1986 creation gets a double thumbs up from me! Sadly it is quite difficult to find these days. What kind of world has half a dozen One Million flankers on our shelves but not one of Paco Rabanne’s best men’s fragrances ever?

#sotd #fragrancereviews #fragrancereview #fragranceoftheday #chanelfragrance #smellyarmy #parfum Today’s fragrance is Coco Eau de Toilette by Chanel. The perfumer was Jacques Polge. Notes: angelica, mimosa, frangipani, mandarin, cascarilla, orange flower, Bulgarian rose, jasmine, labdanum, ambrette seed, opoponax, benzoin, tonka, vanilla. A beautiful female fragrance with a spicy, floral character and a decidedly nostalgic aroma. One can imagine one’s mother coming down the stairs for a night out sometime in the 80s as this scent hits the air. A sweet, fruity, floral and intoxicating fragrance that is an all time classic.

#sotd #fragrancereview #fragrancereviewer #fragrancereviews #dioreausauvageparfum #francoisdemachy @francoisdemachy Back up bottle worthy! The original Dior Eau Sauvage (2012) is a classy, mature citrus aromatic fragrance with only three listed notes: bergamot, myrrh and vetiver. The fragrance smells a lot more complex and rich than that. It has a bright green citrus opening with a resinous, slightly sweet and woody base. There’s gotta be some lavender and a ton of of other aromatics in there that I can’t quite pick out. Some ISO E super , hedione or other magical unlisted aroma chemicals? Almost certainly. Whatever Francois Demachy did it worked and this is a wonderful masculine fragrance with great performance. It was reissued in 2017 with different packaging and a new formula. The 2017 version is also great but lacks the depth and mystery that the original achieves. Wonderful stuff if you can still find it.

#fragrancereview #fragrancereviews #sotd #freshfragrance #nichefragrance #cedratboise @manceraparfums #aventus #creedfragrance #smellyarmy Today I’m wearing Cedrat Boise by Mancera. Notes: bergamot, lemon, spicy notes, blackcurrant, fruity notes, water jasmine, patchouli leaf, sandalwood, cedar, leather, moss, white musk, vanilla. This 2011 release is often compared to Aventus by Creed. It is indeed similar and strikes me as a sweeter, more fruity and less sharp version of Creed’s bestseller. Cedrat Boise also lacks the smoky undertones of its competitor. Mancera’s offering has tremendous projection and tenacity and is much more affordable than Aventus. Even if the prices were equal I prefer Cedrat Boise. Highly recommended.

#sorn #fragrancereview #fragrancereviews #fragrancereviewer #extroaftershave #aftershave #freshfragrance Extro O’Selvaggio is confusingly labelled “Eau de Toilette Aftershave”. It is an invigorating citrus aromatic scent with a great lemon and bergamot opening and a crisp woody base. There is touch of menthol/eucalyptus in the smell as it’s an ingredient used to soothe the skin when this juice is applied to the face after shaving. Apparently the scent is based on Dior’s Eau Sauvage from 1966. Whilst there are many similarities this is no clone and has its own charming, classic, elegant and fresh aroma. Very inexpensive and well worth trying. Notes : bergamot, element, pomelo, amber, patchouli, musk.

#sotn #baccaratrouge540 #maisonfranciskurkdjian #duafragrances @duafragrances #fragrancereview #fragrancereview #fragrancereviewer #smellyarmy Tonight I’m comparing Baccarat Rouge 540 Extrait de Parfum with Casino Royale Nights by Dua Fragrances. The fragrance notes of these two are the same: grandiflorum jasmine, saffron, bitter almond, resins, cedar, musk ambergris. Having worn Casino Royale Nights several times I can say it is a very potent fragrance with tremendous longevity and sillage. The opening has a very strong almond note (it reminds me of marzipan) and the fragrance also has awoody, musky theme. There is a delicious fruity nectar like sweetness throughout the wearing of this scent and a surprise ambergris base that will please Creed fragrance fans. I will look forward to comparing the Dua version with the original more thoroughly in the next few days.

#sotn#fragrancereview #fragrancereviews #byman #dolcegabbanabyman #4160tuesdays @4160tuesdaysperfume #vintagefragrance #smellyarmy We’re celebrating Claire @smurfygurly getting a new job. Pink champagne and 4160 Tuesdays Shazam and D&G By Man are our scents of the celebration! Shazam smells like rich, spiced mulled wine and By Man is a musky fresh yet sweet lavender, cardamom and sandalwood infused scent that’s sadly very rare now.

#sotn #fragrancereview #fragrancereviews #fragrancereviewer #aramis #aramisformen #smellyarmy First released in 1966 and composed by perfumer Bernard Chant - Aramis Eau de Toilette is an intensely masculine, spicy and leathery fragrance. Notes: artemisia, bergamot, cinnamon, gardenia, pelargonium, patchouli, vetiver, sandalwood, leather, oakmoss, amber. This fragrance could be compared to Kouros by YSL or Antaeus by Chanel which both came much later. Aramis lacks the animatic musk, castoreum and civet of those hairy chested classics but makes up for it with the rugged intensity of its leather, woods and spices. The modern version may be somewhat tame compared to past iterations but is still one of the most magnificently manly designer fragrances we can buy today.

#fragrancereviews #fragrancereview #fragrancereviewer #creedfragrance #royaloud #sotn #fragranceofthenight #fragranceoftheday #smellyarmy My fragrance today is Royal Oud by Creed. Amidst all the fuss around the release of Viking by Creed last year - billed as the next big men’s release after Aventus - everybody seemed to forget about Royal Oud, which was released in 2011, a year after Aventus. It may not smell much like oud but this is a beautifully refined citrus, pink pepper and cedar wood combination that is one of the most sophisticated and grown up scents in the French house’s lineup. Notes: lemon, pink pepper, bergamot, cedar, galbanum, angelica root, oud, sandalwood, musk.

#dotd #fragrancereview #fragrancereviews #fragrancereviewer #rasasiperfumes @rasasi_perfumes_uk_eu @rasasi_perfumes_official @miguelboo #smellyarmy My new Fragrance arrival this week is Esraa by Rasasi. Notes: bergamot, ylang-ylang, saffron, orris root, cedar, gurjan balsam, ambrette, sandalwood. Recently I was watching renown fragrance writer Miguel Matos on a YouTube upload of a video initially aired on Instagram and he spoke in glowing terms about this one. The beautiful bottle and the price of just £18 for 65ml were enough to make me order it on the spot. 1st impressions - tons of rose and sandalwood and if I hadn’t read the notes I’d guess this contains oud. However, I’m a western perfume fan most of the time so this is quite an untypical member of my fragrance collection - even though it is apparently a hybrid of western and eastern styles. Woody, floral and exotic would be good descriptors and the bewitching and intoxicating scent certainly belies its meagre price. I look forward to getting to know this one better in the coming days. Thank you Senhor Matos!
