Today I visited niche perfumery shop @leparfumlechic in Bratislava. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. The biggest surprise for me was niche house @zoologistperfumes which has very unique content and high quality scent. If you will be in Bratislava, go there and just enjoy this nice place! 👍🔝
Byron Parfums Review –
A huge THANK YOU to @Byron_parfums for allowing me to do this review! I got a bottle of Pirates, and samples of the (hugely hyped right now) Mula Mula and 0.9.
Pirates – I am glad Pirates is the one I got a full bottle of. I am falling so in love with the note of jasmine these days. Pirates is a huge jasmine bomb. Along with a musk, and ylang ylang, this fragrance is amazing! It does have a pear note that is prevalent in the beginning along with a pretty dirty tuberose note. Luckily, the tuber goes away and I am left with a lovely with floral-white musk collaboration that is divine! On me, it performs like a beast! My wife loves this one on me as well, but it is definitely unisex enough for both of us to share.
Mula Mula and 0.9 – Although I receiver samples of each, they are very small and I look forward to testing them further. Mula Mula, upon first sample, is a powdery-fruity-leather scent. I would love to have a bottle of that as well, and just may purchase one in the future, it is THAT good. As far as 0.9 goes. It smells like a really generic fragrance that doesn’t perform well. At least, that is my take on it.
Thank you, @byron_parfums for the opportunity to review these products!
Refreshing and realistic mint with a very light non-cloying and non-creamy vetiver. These two notes along with an almost inappreciable mandarin and a hint of musk complete a fragrance whose main note is ... soil tincture!
Refrescante y realista menta con un ligerísimo vetiver no-empalagoso ni cremoso. Estas dos notas junto con una casi inapreciable mandarina un toque de almizcle completan una fragancia cuya nota principal es...tintura de tierra!
A well blended Incense, ash, labdanum, clove and a bit of leather. After a while, the Ambergris appears and brings a salty accord. It is a warm, smokey and resinous scent. Right in the exact point between dry and creamy.
Una muy buena mezcla de incienso, ceniza, ládano, clavo de olor y un poco de cuero. Después de un rato, el ambergris aparece y aporta un acorde salado. Es un aroma cálido, ahumado y resinoso. Justo en el punto exacto entre seco y cremoso.
Dulce, ahumado y resinoso ámbar con azafrán y haba tonka. Es un ámbar muy original y diferente al de otros perfumes que me da una sensación de olor a cuero e incluso algo parecido a goma
Sweet, smoky and resinous amber with safron and tonka bean. It is a very original amber, different to the other amber-based fragrances. It has a leather and rubber-like vibe to my nose.
So glad to discover those high quality perfumes of @rookperfumes I definitely recommend to try them.
Many thanks to @rookperfumes for sending me samples of their perfumes.
What surprised me the most about Rook Perfumes is that the notes are very realistic and the quality of the perfumes is extraordinary. Certainly a pleasant surprise.
This perfume will delight the tobacco, suede and leather lovers, among which I include myself. Exquisitely simple, realistic and perfectly well blended. It opens with a beautiful tobacco note and dries down into a leathery/suede note.
Este perfume hará las delicias de los amantes del tabaco, la gamuza y el cuero, entre los que me incluyo. Exquisitamente simple, realista y perfectamente bien mezclado. Abre con una hermosa nota de tabaco y seca con cuero/gamuza.
This is not the typical neroli perfume. A powerful musk shares almost the same role as that note. Other flowers such as narcissus and orange blossom are mixed in the base, as well as the ambergris that add a salty touch to the perfume. The whole blend feels clean and soapy.
Este no es el típico perfume de neroli. Un potente almizcle comparte casi el mismo protagonismo que dicha nota. Otras flores como el narciso y la flor de azahar se mezclan en la base, así como el ambergris que aportan un toque salino al perfume. Todo el conjunto da sensación de limpio y jabonoso.
Very realistic note of cypress accompanied by other green notes like pine or grass along with wood transports you to the heart of a thick forest. A light incense and musk complete the fragrance.
Nota muy realista de ciprés acompañado por otras notas verdes como pino o césped junto con madera te transporta al corazón de un espeso bosque. Un ligero incienso y almizcle completan la fragancia.
