Sometimes, extreme wood can be a problem. Especially when you wake in the night and need to pee. In this case, Extreme Wood from @ks_susskind is extremely pleasurable. Giving off a similar vibe to Aventus (pineapple & birch aren't notes) this is fresh but with plenty of smooth depth.
My scent today is Gentlemen from @ks_susskind. From the outset mint is a major player. Bergamot is adding further freshness whilst Ginger provides a pleasing dash of spice. Under this fresh top is a very smooth mid and base with Sandalwood, Musk and Ambergris. Due to it's smooth depth I wouldn't describe this as a 'freshie'. It is another very versatile offering that is subtle in profile but noticeable in it's performance.
Scent of The Day : Tom Ford Oud Wood: I've always slept on this for some odd reason, maybe it's the performance. I revisited it halfway through the summer and fell in love. A gorgeous combination of woody notes and a sweet base. You can't go wrong with this.You'll catch me at a black tie event on this.
SOTD Camel by Zoologist
Straight from the off this has an Arabic feel to it which continues through its entirety.Smokey dried fruits,spices,animalic aspects and musk fill the composition with both a sweetness and dryness.The rose flitters in and out that gives it a floral element and we finish of with a warm woody base with a vanilla creaminess.An ideal fragrance for cooler days and months and one that both pleases and challenges but without pushing the boundaries too far.Zoologist continue to impress as I slowly work my way through their catalogue of creative nuances and imo are one of the most exciting brands to date 😎😎
My scent today is Silk from @ks_susskind. The only notes listed are Cashmere, Musk and Oakmoss. To me this is silky smooth. I get an extremely pleasant 'talcum powder' accord mixed with a lovely creaminess. I'm impressed!
My scent today is Black Influence from @ks_susskind. Notes of Cardomom, Nutmeg, Benzoin, Vetiver, Vanilla, Musk, Cedar and Tonka Bean complete what is an excellent fragrance. I find it to be pleasantly soft and subtle with a sweet slightly powdery profile. I don't find this boring or generic. Quite the contrary, there is something about it that makes this immensely pleasurable to wear. Factor in the low cost and I'd say this is definitely a house worth checking out.
SOTD Sacred from the house of Louis Cardin @louiscardin.official.
Not a new house,but a house that in recent times has taken a back seat,but have chosen to once again put themselves back in the limelight. My good friend chris from fragmental uk and I will be talking in a little more depth about this company and giving our impressions on a few of their fragrances in an upcoming “live”. Sacred is real hidden gem and imo is a mixture of two well known fragrances which won’t disappoint ,without giving too much away vanilla and spices play major parts and the composition certainly lasts and performs well. So keep an eye open for the up coming “live”to find out more about this little beaut 😎😎😎
Giorgio Beverly Hills:parfum coup de poing des années 1980
Crée par Francis Camail ,ce parfum floral gourmand de 1981 incarne l’Amérique jet set de la côte ouest ,éprise de liberté et de luxe .
C’est un parfum solaire ,terriblement puissant où les fleurs blanches capiteuses sous sous les feux de la rampe:
la Tubéreuse fatale accompagnée de fleur d’oranger,de jasmin,de gardénia ,de narcisse s’envole dans un éclat magistral d’aldehydes et de mandarine .
Sa puissance est renforcée par l’ajout d’ylang,,patchouli,muscade,iris,Santal et un trait généreux de vétiver.
Son sillage opulent et tenace en fait un parfum de caractère qui ne laisse jamais indifférent
et qui a toujours aujourd’hui ses admirateurs.
Il changeait des parfums légers et frais en vogue dans les années 1970.
Son packaging rayé et jaune est également immédiatement reconnaissable!
