Vesace The Dreamer Cologne Review

Posted by Dimitri on Mon, 09/24/2018 - 3:12 PM

The legacy of Gianni Versace is vast and enduring. Hallowed for popularising the Baroque, his designs are immediately recognisable. He was revered as a visionary and a dreamer. There's no surprise then, that he named one of his iconic masculine fragrances Dreamer, because he was always looking at mythology and astrology for inspiration.

The Dreamer harnesses two main components beautifully: lavender and tobacco.  It is this marriage that gives The Dreamer its sensational winning appeal. Sweet tobacco and aromatics cartwheel over a heart of iris, carnation and geranium and a base of vetiver, tonka and cedar. (Lovers of D&G Homme will appreciate the Dreamer too.) A favourite amongst men and women that places a bookmark firmly between the pages of the 90s, this Versace creation is revered as one of the best from this highly celebrated brand.

Romantic, rousing and timeless, The Dreamer is proof positive that perfumery is indeed an art, and that Gianni VersaceÕs innovation reaches well beyond his lifetime; and his sight, far beyond the stars.

Gucci by Gucci Sport Cologne Review

Posted by Dimitri on Wed, 08/29/2018 - 4:19 PM

 

The notion of sporting lifestyle fragrances is not a new one, and many perfume houses have built their reputation on producing perfumes that honour a sporting life (Hermes, I'm looking at you!) That being said, few brands are revered as highly as Italian fashion royalty, Gucci. Gucci by Gucci Sport (2010) is a fresh and vibrant eau de toilette which is ideal for men on the move!

Rather than training its focus on ozone or aquatic notes to furnish a sense of the great outdoors, this masculine fragrance is brimming with vivid evergreens. Luminous grapefruit, mandarin and cypress get the ball rolling, whilst fig, cardamom, vetiver, ambrette and patchouli provide support to the composition and a sense of grounding earth underfoot. The overall experience is refreshing, bracing and enlivening. This is arguably the perfect post-workout fragrance to throw in your gym bag!

Ideal for casual wear and for the weekend, Gucci by Gucci Sport impresses with its delicate balance of verdant greens and woods. A great mix of sport and sophistication. Viva la Gucci!

Colognes that Women Love on Men

Posted by Kristin West on Mon, 08/13/2018 - 4:43 PM

There are a lot of different reasons why people wear fragrances. Sometimes it's to boost confidence or enjoy a scent that reminds you of a special time in your life, and sometimes it's to impress another. If you are looking for a fragrance to impress someone special, or you want to turn some heads, here are some great choices that women LOVE to smell on men!

Mont Blanc Individuel

Individuel from Montblanc is a sexy fresh fragrance. It's somewhat sweet, with aromatic floral notes of lavender and violet, and very refreshing. This is a fantastic everyday scent and it smells amazing on men, without being overpowering or to heavy.

Creed Himalaya

There is something about fresh scents that are just SO attractive on men. Himalaya by Creed is a perfect example of this. The citrus in the opening with the sandalwood, ambergris and musk makes this a great everyday scent - But there is something special about it that makes you want to go in for another whiff when you smell it on a man. Casual yet mysterious. 

John Varvatos Dark Rebel

There is a sexiness to leather scents that can't be denied and Dark Rebel is no exception. A boozy, resinous fragrance with a touch of sweetness and all that leather...It's something that you can't get enough of, and neither can she.

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male

This is a classic, and for good reason. It's a universally fantastic fragrance on men. It has a Minty opening that dries down to  something aromatic and slightly spiced. It just so smells gorgeous and inviting on men. The warmth and spiciness of this fragrance is so attractive and there is a power to it that demands attention.
