Review of Hypnotic Poison by Christian Dior

By | 2013-04-18T15:26:42+00:00 April 18th, 2013|Categories: Perfume Reviews|

Hypnotic poison has always been a firm favourite among the men. Wearing this scent is always bound to illicit complements no-matter how “mainstream” it is. It was brought to the market in 1998, and was always the original Poison’s softer, quieter, more mysterious little sister. It does not attack the senses like Poison, but instead

Review of Cool Water for Women by Davidoff

By | 2013-04-18T15:16:42+00:00 April 18th, 2013|Categories: Perfume Reviews|

Created by Pierre Bourdon in 1996 Cool Water for women came off the back of the inordinately successful original Cool Water for men which catapulted the relatively new perfume arm of Davidoff to worldwide acclaim. Whatever you think of that original scent now, some say it smells dated, some think of it as rather cheap-smelling

By | 2013-04-18T12:20:50+00:00 April 18th, 2013|Categories: Perfume Reviews|

Too many perfume launches, not enough time, not enough days in the year in fact. That’s the cry from perfume reviewers the world over as they madly scramble about trying to find perfume and cologne samples, attend launches, sniff the actual fragrances, wear them, get the facts, and pen the perfume reviews. Regardless of this

Review of D&G No3 L’Imperatrice by Dolce & Cabbana

By | 2013-04-18T12:06:35+00:00 April 18th, 2013|Categories: Perfume Reviews|

L’Imperatrice (The Empress) is composed of the following notes: watermelon, kiwi, pink cyclamen and musk.  The  fragrance opens quite strong with a powerful aroma of sweet citrus fruits cut nicely by an interesting combination of kiwi and watermelon that synergise delightfully and come in at just the right intensity to take the edge of the

Review of L’Amoureaux 6 by Dolce & Cabbana

By | 2013-04-30T13:28:59+00:00 April 18th, 2013|Categories: Perfume Reviews|

L’Amoureaux 6 (translates to The Lovers) is composed of the following notes: bergamot, cardamom, juniper, pink pepper, spices, birch leaf, orris, wood and finally musk. Being that current perfume trends tend to dictate that most fragrances center around a kind of sugary sweetness that has been the bane of perfume reviewers’ lives for years,  L’Amoureaux

Review of La Lune 18 by D&G

By | 2013-04-18T11:46:29+00:00 April 18th, 2013|Categories: Perfume Reviews|

La Lune 18 (The Moon) is the fifth and final fragrance in the D&G Fragrance Anthology. Although you may imagine that this one was earmarked as the collection’s darker or midnight fragrance that is not exactly what you get here. Instead what you get is more of the same, a variation on the theme that

Review of Incredible Me by Escada

By | 2013-04-18T11:31:38+00:00 April 18th, 2013|Categories: Perfume Reviews|

Escada’s Incredible Me hit stores back in 2008 with an advertising campaign that was fronted by Lydia Hearst. Envisioned by the company as an “intercultural” scent, whatever that means in this day and age, it brings together exotic Asian elements with the vibrancy of the western world. Classified as a vanilla-based floral oriental it comprises

Review of Rose The One by Dolce & Cabbana

By | 2013-04-18T11:28:49+00:00 April 18th, 2013|Categories: Perfume Reviews|

Although D&G’s spin-off perfume that takes its inspiration from their 2006 release The One would have most of you expecting a rose centered fragrance with soft powdery gourmand texture this is not exactly what you inevitably get. If you go in for all that sexy advertising bumf featuring an jaw dropping Scarlett Johansson looking more

Review of Palazzo by Fendi

By | 2013-04-18T11:19:17+00:00 April 18th, 2013|Categories: Perfume Reviews|

Having been discontinued in many stores, Palazzo by Fendi was always something of a love hate affair with most people. Many mention it in the same breath as Thiery Mugler’s Angel, others site it as being closer to Karma by Lush. And although you’re not likely to find very many glowing reviews of Palazzo, for

Review of Femme by Rochas

By | 2013-04-18T10:36:44+00:00 April 18th, 2013|Categories: Perfume Reviews|

The Story behind Femme is that is was created way back in the forties by famous perfumer Edmond Roudnitska. The perfume was commissioned by Marcel Rochas and intended as a gift for his wife. The original perfume has been reformulated by Rochas with an view towards today’s perfume market and has been altered slightly. The
