Vera Wang For Men Cologne Review

Posted by Dimitri on Mon, 06/11/2018 - 2:46 PM

Arguably best known for her sublime bridal fashions, US designer Vera Wang pirouetted onto the world stage in 2002 with her first feminine perfume release, followed closely in 2004 with the masculine counterpart 'Vera Wang for Men'. A woody spicy fragrance, it succeeded in capturing hearts with its sophisticated and wildly seductive charm.

Vera Wang for Men opens with lip-smacking yuzu - a delicious Japanese citrus, which accompanies a leafy green accord for a brisk and shimmering flight. Moments later, a delectable heart of woods and spices unfurls: sweet nutmeg, pungent tobacco and smooth suede all climb over a trail of anise and precious sandalwood. Vera Wang for Men is (admittedly) the perfect scent for a groom or groomsmen and also for romantic nights out. It somehow stays warm and enveloping whilst remaining clean and transparent.

Lovers of Tom Ford’s signature scent Tom Ford for Men, or Dolce & Gabbana’s The One will appreciate all that Vera Wang for Men has to offer. Fresh, classy and refined, this is a skinscent that begs to be explored.

Bvlgari Aqva Marine Cologne Review

Posted by Dimitri on Tue, 02/20/2018 - 9:46 PM

Bvlgari’s AQVA series has endured well over a decade, and the original, launched in 2005, spurred on a steady slew of lip-smacking successors! Aqva Marine, launched in 2008 is still today a winning aromatic aquatic scent for men, and one that YOU should have in your wardrobe!

Harnessing the scent of the sea, Aqva Marine is brimming with notes of posidonia seaweed… this forms the backbone upon which it’s abundant fresh and crisp notes are perched. The scent opens with bergamot and orange blossom, and is imbued with rosemary which gives it a nice green slant. White cedar in the base anchors it to the skin for many hours. The sharp oceanic and ozonic coolness washes over you in waves. A thirst-quenching, brisk and uplifting tonic, Aqva Marine is perfect for school, the office or casual daytime wear, and at night, its the prefect accompaniment to a crisp white shirt and jeans.

Bvlgari continue to explore the fathomless sea with other flankers of Aqva, and all are worth checking out. Their freshness and marine saltiness make for an excellent all-rounder!
