#fragrancereview #fragrancereviewer #fragranceblogger #fragrancereviews #fragcomm #parfum #fragrancevlog #smellyarmy #sotd #sotn #fragranceoftheday #diorfragrance #diorhomme #diorhommeparfum My fragrance of the night is Dior Homme Parfum. Notes: iris, sandalwood, rose, leather, vanilla, ambrette, cedar. The signature Dior Homme waxy iris note combines with masculine woods and leather for a manly powerhouse of the 21st century. Rich, deep, complex, sensual and unique - Francois Demachy’s 2014 release is a wonderful signature scent for autumn and winter evenings. So it will be perfect for a night at the pub(s) in Rochester - former home of Charles Dickens.

#fragrancereview #fragrancereviewer #fragranceblogger #fragrancereviews #fragcomm #parfum #fragrancevlog #smellyarmy #sotd #sotn #fragranceoftheday #yslopium #vintagefragrance The original YSL Opium Eau de Toilette came into my possession this week. Get ready for a long note listing...coriander, plum, citruses, mandarin orange, pepper, jasmine, cloves, West Indian bay, bergamot, carnation, sandalwood, patchouli, cinnamon, orris root, peach, lily of the valley, rose, labdanum, tolu balsam, opoponax, musk, coconut, vanilla, benzoin, vetiver, incense, cedar, myrhh, castoreum, amber. This is a fragrance for women. Exotic, intoxicating, sensuous and nostalgic. Opium is perfume how it used to be done - in a good way. Reminiscent of a decadent and glamorous aunt giving you a hug in a fur coat this is a beautiful and powerful feminine scent with rich florals, spices and a hint of sin justifying the name Opium. Well worth trying if you stumble across a vintage bottle like this one. Caution: it may smell dated to some!

#fragrancereview #fragrancereviewer #fragranceblogger #fragrancereviews #fragcomm #parfum #fragrancevlog #smellyarmy #sotd #sotn #fragranceoftheday #diorfahreneit #valentinouomointense #opiumpourhomme Cheeky @smurfygurly went through my collection when I was out and picked out her favourite sexy men’s designer scents for autumn and winter nights. Her picks were Dior Fahrenheit, Valentino Uomo Intense, CK One Shock, YSL Opium Pour Homme EdP and Dior Homme Parfum. What do you think of her selections? The link to her YouTube video is in my bio.

#fragrancereview #fragrancereviewer #fragranceblogger #fragrancereviews #fragcomm #parfum #fragrancevlog #smellyarmy #sotd #sotn #fragranceoftheday #bargainoftheday #fleurdemale I was thrilled to find this for sale at a low price in Savers in the UK today. Now discontinued and starting to escalate in price Jean Paul Gaultier Fleur de Male is a true modern classic. This 2007 release is classified as an aromatic fougere and was created by perfumer Francis Kurkdjian who brought us the original Le Male in 1995. These are the notes of Fleur de Male: petit grain, neroli, chamomile, basil. At once fresh, floral, musky and animatic this scent is an enigmatic and potentially polarising one. There are some faint reminiscences of the original Le Male but a whole ton of powdery, floral, sweet and sensuous accords making this well worth owning alongside the original stripey torso bottle. We’re only seeing the tin in my picture as I have a decant already and am deciding if I really love it or if the sought after sealed bottle can pay off my mortgage in a few years time!!!

#fragrancereview #fragrancereviewer #fragranceblogger #fragrancereviews #fragcomm #parfum #fragrancevlog #smellyarmy #sotd #sotn #fragranceoftheday #gallagherfragrances #nichefragrance @gallagherfragrances Rose All Dae from Gallagher Fragrances is my scent of the night. Notes: apple crisp, plum, dark rose, brown sugar, tonka bean, stainless steel. This is a very rich, boozy, sweet scent. Reminiscent of fruits soaked in brandy - this sumptuous and decadent fragrance may appeal to fans of By Kilian’s Criminal of Love and Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille. Neither tobacco nor vanilla are listed as notes here but they are both apparent to my nose. Mix that with the pungent dried fruit note and a warming liquor like aura and you have a great night time scent for autumn and winter. Performance is very good too. I’m grateful to the company for sending this to me for review and will be discussing it more on my YouTube channel soon.

#fragrancereview #fragrancereviewer #fragranceblogger #fragrancereviews #fragcomm #parfum #fragrancevlog #smellyarmy #sotd #sotn #fragranceoftheday His and hers scents of the night. Midnight Couture Black Eau de Minuit and Masculine Eau de Minuit. Two sweet yet dark licorice based fragrances. The female Eau de Minuit features licorice, iris, jasmine, myrhh, benzoin and vanilla. The masculine one features ivy, anise, myrhh, licorice wood, oud, vetiver and olive wood. Great flankers to the originals with a darker edge but still retaining the signature anise accord and giving us two grown up takes on gourmand!

#fragrancereview #fragrancereviewer #fragranceblogger #fragrancereviews #fragcomm #parfum #fragrancevlog #smellyarmy #sotd #sotn #fragranceoftheday #diorhommeintense #diorhommeparfum #diorfragrances I used to think Dior Homme Parfum was the best version of Dior Homme but now I’m not so sure. Dior Homme Intense is also beautiful. The Parfum has a heavier and more masculine feel while Intense is a little more airy and powdery. Both utilise the distinctive lipstick-esque waxy iris note that defined Olivier Polge’s original Dior Homme Eau de Toilette (2005). Which is your favourite Dior Homme?

#fragrancereview #fragrancereviewer #fragranceblogger #fragrancereviews #fragcomm #parfum #fragrancevlog #smellyarmy #sotd #sotn #fragranceoftheday #brutfaberge #fabergebrut Tonight’s fragrance is Brut Special Reserve Spray Cologne. Notes: lemon, bergamot, anise, basil, lavender, geranium, jasmine, ylang ylang, sandalwood, oakmoss, patchouli, vetiver, tonka bean, vanilla. A textbook barbershop scent that is actually used in barbershops(more than can be said for MDCI Invasion Barbare!) Musky, soapy, aromatic and masculine with florals and sweetness keeping it likeable and sensual. Great value at little over £10 a bottle online and with one of the most iconic fragrance bottles ever designed. Fans of YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme and Penhaligon’s Sartorial have no excuse not to own this as the benchmark stylistic descriptor for the genre. Not necessarily the best fougere ever made but one of the most important and pretty darn good for sure.

#fragrancereview #fragrancereviewer #fragranceblogger #fragrancereviews #fragcomm #parfum #fragrancevlog #smellyarmy #sotd #sotn #fragranceoftheday #gallagherfragrances #foahperfumes #alharamain Some beautiful bottles today. I am very fortunate to have been sent these fragrances for review: Gallagher Fragrances - Rose All Day and Fineapple, Foah - 11, Al Haramain - Amber Oud Gold Edition. I’m looking forward to reviewing them on my YouTube Channel. All are interesting although not necessarily my cup of tea in every case! Very different fragrance houses with different styles. @foahperfumes are now available at Harvey Nichols in the UK. What diversity and choice we have now in the world of fragrance! Have you tried any of these? Which are you most interested to hear about?

#fragrancereview #fragrancereviewer @cecilezarokianparfumeur #fragranceblogger #fragrancereviews #fragcomm #aurasublime #parfum #fragrancevlog #smellyarmy #sotd #sotn #fragranceoftheday #nichefragrance #bijonparfums #gourmandfragrance It’s great when a fragrance does exactly what it says on the bottle. Aura Sublime from Bijon is one such scent. Released in 2015 and created by perfumer Cecile Zarokian this one features the following notes: bergamot, lemon, iris, hedione, ambergris, vanilla, tonka bean, woody notes, benzoin, musk. There is a lovely burst of fresh bergamot in the opening and a creamy, airy and enchanting base of vanilla, benzoin and tonka. Fans of Dior’s Feve Delicieuse (which means delicious bean) - which showcases the beauty of the tonka bean - may find much to enjoy here. Xerjoff’s Lira is another good comparison. I’ve pictured a bottle of vanilla essence as that is the most glaringly obvious note but there is a beautiful interplay of freshness, florals and sweet accords occurring in this potent and complex Extrait de Parfum. Try this if you can!

#fragrancereview #fragrancereviewer #louiscardin.official #fragranceblogger #fragrancereviews #fragcomm #parfum #fragrancevlog #smellyarmy #sotd #sotn #fragranceoftheday @louiscardin.official Today I’m trying out these two rather nice and affordable scents from Louis Cardin. Silver is a spicy, musky vanilla scent with a powdery feel and a synthetic but pleasing aroma. Very nice longevity and a great comforting men’s fragrance for autumn. Lumination is an aquatic citrus scent somewhat reminiscent of Acqua Di Gio by Armani. The bright bergamot opening and sea notes make it a very good daytime choice especially in warmer weather. I don’t think these are clones of any other fragrances and for just over £20 for 100ml they represent very good value and stand alongside fragrances by houses such as Armaf as being well worthy of your consideration. Both are Eau de Parfums. The company have a 20 per cent discount code 20FS and their website in the U.K. is www.louiscardin.co.uk. They kindly sent me these two fragrances for review but I am not receiving any percentage on sales or anything like that. #louiscardin.official

I have these three plus a decant of Intensa and a bottle of Leather from the ingredients series. Essenza is undoubtedly my favourite due to the richness of the soapy citrus aura which takes the feel of the original and Assoluta versions up to the next level!
