It’s a pleasant scent overall. Smells cologne-y, smells aquatic. Sometimes a bit icy or mentholated. A bit spicy. I guess you might consider it “green”, but it doesn’t really remind me of the world of plants. It’s not burning my nose or giving me a headache, but the overall effect is a bit harsh and synthetic to me. I find I am going nose-blind to it rather quickly, though others are smelling it more clearly. Some fragrances have me smelling my shirt all day. I don’t think this will be one of them. I am ready to move on after a couple of hours.

Fragscent Perfumes introduce High Quality inspired impression of 212 VIP Black by Carolina Herrera. Has slight similarities to Pure XS, but it is softer and smoother. I like the use of Lavender here. Not too sweet. I like it much more than 212 VIP Black Extra. Black Extra is brash and pushes the Lavender towards an aquatic feel. This is soft, clean, boozy musk. Longevity is just fine
Great fresh business fragrance suited more for cold weather. Its not sweet at all its something I would wear during an evening walk or a dinner night – masculine and fresh. More suited as a day fragrance i would say. Love it very nice and pleasant smell with a very, very long lasting smell.
212 VIP Black by Carolina Herrera is a Aromatic Fougere fragrance for men. 212 VIP Black was launched in 2017. 212 VIP Black was created by Carlos Benaim and Anne Flipo. Top notes are Absinthe, Anise and Fennel; middle note is Lavender; base notes are Black Vanilla Husk and Musk.
Beautiful, I ordered a few samples just because I wanted to try Cactus Garden, but this is my favorite by far, I ordered a 10ml decant within a day. Longevity is GREAT for me! but my skin seems to like fresh/aquatic perfumes. As to sillage, my boyfriend noticed it from a meter away, but that was within the first hour so not too sure. Nonetheless, a potential fave. I can see why people might think it’s generic upon first sniff, but the way it personally interacted with my chemistry was phenomenal. Wow wow wow . Not gonna lie I was skeptical about LV Colognes but THIS BLEW ME OUT OF THE POOL! So luxurious!!! Absolute summer , totally unisex, very luxurious and I love love love it! Was my first LV & my 2nd was California Dream and THAT is a VERY CLOSE 2nd as well. It reminds me of sundowners at Ocean Beach in San Diego. But even some say the longevity or sillage is not worth the price, I NEVER JUDGE by a weak performance. I love skin scents as well and believe no it everything should be loud AF. Hope everyone is safe and healthy & smelling their best! 💙
Alexander II is an impression of Alexandria II by Xerjoff is Masterpiece and sits in my TOP10 best fragrances I’ve ever smelled. This wasn’t love at first sniff. I got a sample in the begging of my fragrance journey.

Fragscent Perfumes Introduce high quality inspired impression of Apogee perfume by Louis Vuitton is nice delicate floral perfume. leans a bit mature. reminds me of a lazy Sunday morning by Maison Margiela. quite green, very floral, very light citrus, perfect for hot summer days because this one does not go sour, unlike most citrus perfumes. longevity is meh, lasts about 5-6 hours on my skin. a bit of a citronella scent in the opening. after the 3 hour mark, it smells nice and powdery but has no more projection.
This scent is more apple brandy barrel than actual apple brandy. The oak and sweet resin are big players that really dominate most of the odor profile. The vanilla and cedar really take a backseat to create that pseudo-boozy baked apple note, ever present yet playing second fiddle. But the oak is there in the open, it’s heaviest in the mid, and it’s still hanging around in the dry down. That’s not a knock on the fragrance at all, as it still plays out wonderfully. It’s a bit linear in that it doesn’t stray from it’s name, but that’s its strength. Very rich, very high quality, and expertly crafted.
Apple Brandy is fairly pleasant, more so than most of the other Kilians, but second to Straight to Heaven.
These 2 actually are not that dissimilar, I find they share the same basic DNA and they differentiate in some important details, for example Apple Brandy has a very evident apple note, which I am surprised to not see listed in the pyramid. Also the vanilla is more intense here. As the 2 fragrances progress, the differentiate more.
Apple Brandy gets a solid like.
Apple | Rum | Cedar Wood | Oak | Vanilla | Labdanum
Fragscent Perfumes introduce high quality inspired impression of Aqua Di Gio by G. Armani, It feels fresh but not as sharp as the typical aquatic scent, the freshness gets round up by the smell of jasmine (flowery sweetness). The canola and the flower mix its what I feel as I am walking.
You get aquatic notes topped with green notes ending up in sweet floral notes.
Cant judge the performance cause Ive just tried it, 3 hours till now its almost as just applied
Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani is a Aromatic Aquatic fragrance for men. Acqua di Gio was launched in 1996. Acqua di Gio was created by Alberto Morillas, Annick Menardo and Christian Dussoulier. Top notes are Lime, Lemon, Bergamot, Jasmine, Orange, Mandarin Orange and Neroli; middle notes are Sea Notes, Jasmine, Calone, Peach, Freesia, Cyclamen, Hyacinth, Rosemary, Violet, Coriander, Nutmeg, Rose and Mignonette; base notes are White Musk, Cedar, Oakmoss, Patchouli and Amber.
Fragscent Perfumes introduce high quality impression perfume of Aqua Di Gio Profumo. What can be said about this that hasn’t been said before? This is a good scent. Beginning I’m not a big fan of but wait like a hour after applying and when the magic happens. The incense note is so delightful and pretty magical to me. Every couple mins the incense just projects from me like crazy but in a good way. And that note just keeps projecting for hours. Amazing. Most scents I become nose blind to within the 2 hour mark, unless I put my nose right up to where I sprayed and noted this. 8 hours in I kept catching a waft of incense.
Acqua di Giò Profumo by Giorgio Armani is a Aromatic Aquatic fragrance for men. Acqua di Giò Profumo was launched in 2015. The nose behind this fragrance is Alberto Morillas. Top notes are Sea Notes and Bergamot; middle notes are Rosemary, Sage and Geranium; base notes are Incense and Patchouli.
Alpha by Fragscent Perfumes is high quality impression perfume of Aqua Vitae Forte by MFK, After sampling 8 fragrances from the house of Francis Kurkdjian, AVF catched my attention the most. It’s unique and so good, it might be leaning a little bit feminine but believe me it uniqueness makes people wonder what on earth they are smelling. Well, it’s a spicy combo of Ylang-Ylang and Sandalwood with a burst of lemons at the opening smoothened to perfection by Mr Kurkdjian. Simply Amazing!
Aqua Vitae Forte by Maison Francis Kurkdjian is a Woody Spicy fragrance for women and men. Aqua Vitae Forte was launched in 2015. The nose behind this fragrance is Francis Kurkdjian. Top notes are Lemon, Guatemalan Cardamom, Sicilian Mandarin, Ceylon Cinnamon, Bergamot and Pink Pepper; middle notes are Madagascar Ylang-Ylang and Tunisian Orange Blossom; base notes are Sandalwood and Haitian Vetiver.
Azrak by Fragscent Perfumes is high quality impression of Azrak by Boadicea Victorious. This fragrance is so gorgeous to me. I love the rose like opening that stays on my skin for about 2 hours, with great projections. The magic comes in the mid and dry down for me. There is this creamy sweet/spicy woody note that I get with a hint of rose in the dry down on my skin that is absolutely magical for me.
That is my favorite part of the fragrance honestly. I receive compliments every time I wear this fragrance.
Projection 2-3 feet
Longevity 8-10 hours depending on the day with wafts in the air.
Compliments are amazing
dry down is magical

Bergamot | Pineapple | Lemon | Cassis | Cardamom
Spices | Jasmine | Lily of the Valley | Rose | Violet
Another summer favorite and a joy to wear. Lovely minty, green, freshness with the unique ivy note that gives it a ton of character. High-quality, sprightly, luxe and beachy. Smells natural and lush and something in it reminds me of cactus or cucumber pulp. Doesn’t follow the usual summer tropes of marine notes, coconut suntan lotion etc and in its own way is quite groundbreaking, although not an artsy or avant-garde affair. Just plain feels good and sometimes that is all you need, especially in this day and age. Love it!
Beach Hut Man by Amouage is a Woody Aromatic fragrance for men. Beach Hut Man was launched in 2017. The nose behind this fragrance is Elise Benat. Top notes are Mint, Galbanum and Orange Blossom; middle notes are Ivy, Vetiver and Moss; base notes are Woody Notes, Myrrh and Patchouli.
Fragscent Perfumes introduce high quality impression of Black Afgano by Nasomatto, Black Afgano is for special occasion scent. Not the special occasion of a black-tie event, or going on a date, or doing anything with anyone. This is like a Halloween or a nice chill night. Since people in my area love amber woods with citrus or rose, they really wouldn’t tolerate this beyond a “what an interesting smell” then get annoyed if they have to spend an hour with you.
Definitely super smoky, dry amber, tobacco, coffee incense.
Big salute to Mr. Olivier Polge. For me, he is one of the best perfumer out there period. every scent that he creates, gets the hype every time until now. like Dior Homme ’05, gets the hyped. Valentino Uomo, gets the hyped. The One EDT/EDP, gets the hyped. F Black by Ferragamo, gets the hyped. Spice bomb, gets the hyped. BDC Parfum, gets the hyped. and some other creations that he is part of like Midnight in Paris also gets the hyped. La Vie Est Belle line and PR Invictus gets the hyped.
Hands Down to Mr. Polge. We Gentleman here waiting for more creations from you.
op notes are Lemon Zest, Bergamot, Mint and Artemisia; middle notes are Lavender, Pineapple, Geranium and Green Notes; base notes are Sandalwood, Cedar, Amberwood, Iso E Super and Tonka Bean.
Fragscent Perfumes introduce high quality inspired impression of Blue Sapphire by Boadicea Victorious. Blue Sapphire’s opening is built upon the contrast of candied citruses and rose set against the herbal tones of camomile, sweet and sour, airy and profound like a love calligraphy written on water.
But make no mistake about it, this is a kaleidoscopic masterpiece, and it darkens as it transitions into the heart, highlighting the honeyed sweetness of jasmine and marigold rounded by the lemony facets of magnolia to reveal a scent of hypnotic proportions, reminiscent to a cloudless midnight sky.
Towards the base, the exotic florals are penetrated by the darker edges of patchouli, the warmth of amber and the smoky shadows of agarwood, capturing the essence that is directly linked to the powerful qualities associated with the blue sapphires, known since ancient times as a symbol of power and strength.
Summarizing, Blue Sapphire is the ultimate celebratory elixir, unabashedly opulent and divine beyond words.
Blue Sapphire by Boadicea the Victorious is a Amber Woody fragrance for women and men. Blue Sapphire was launched in 2013. The nose behind this fragrance is Christian Provenzano. Top notes are Lemon, Chamomile, Sage, Tagetes and Saffron; middle notes are Rose, Indian Jasmine and Magnolia; base notes are Agarwood (Oud), Patchouli and Amber.
A soapy, fresh-faced rose, almost watery. The musk smells clean and fresh. I thought the base would be sweeter but it isn’t sweet. Soapy soap! Almost unisex, it could be worn by a women too, I guess.
Pleasant and inoffensive, a safe blind buy as far as “cheapies” go.
Edit: in cold weather it is morphing into sweet and nutty, lovely still. The Tonka and vanilla take the stage!
Fragscent Perfumes introduce high quality impression of BR-540 by Maison Francis Kurkdjian .
Maison Francis Kurkdjian and Baccarat to celebrate the crystal manufacturer’s 250th birthday. The woody scent releases a poetic alchemy, a highly condensed and graphic olfactory signature. Breezy jasmine facets, radiant saffron boost the ambergris mineral notes and the woody tones of freshly-cut cedar. Bright and sleek, Baccarat Rouge 540 eau de parfum caresses the skin like an amber and woody floral whisper.
Love this here. Yep, opening is full of cloves son! Reminds me a lot of L’Instant De Guerlain somehow, in the opening, which I love as well. Then… It slowly transforms into this beautiful barbershop style foggier that is as unique as the house is.
I didn’t have any issues with the cloves after the 1hr mark, nor was performance an issue. Although I think this should get more love than it does. At least a 9/10 for me and full bottle worthy if you like to smell like a man!
Bracken Man by Amouage is a Aromatic Fougere fragrance for men. Bracken Man was launched in 2016. Top notes are Cloves, Cypress, Lavender, Nutmeg, Lemon and Bergamot; middle notes are Geranium, Cedar, Cinnamon and Sandalwood; base notes are Patchouli and Musk.
Excellent leather scent, long-lasting and sillage.
Brazil is a rich oriental fragrance which made by oud-wood, incense, musk & some saffron leather like accord which this part exactly reminds me of Guerlain santal royal. It has some exotic facets in dry down that I like it.
As other Fragscent’s exclusive luxury collection fragrances this one is simple, high quality & so powerful in longevity too. Special choice for men wearing during fall & winters that can be match with leathery outfits IMO
Brazil by fragscent is an Amber Woody fragrance for men. This is a new fragrance. Brazil was launched in 2021.
Just beautiful. One of my favorite fragrances for men – I love the feeling I get when I wear this one. Rose, powder, musk, a hint of bergamot-style citrus. And not a girly rose smell either. Elegant, very English, refined. Picture a suited man holding a rose and this is what he’d smell like. Longevity is 2-4 hours – reapply if you must! Cheap as chips and well worth adding to your collection, or a starting point for a man on a budget.
Top notes are Ginger, Cardamom, Green Mandarin and Bergamot; middle notes are Wild Rose, Nutmeg, Cedar and Spicy Notes; base notes are Tonka Bean, Cedar, Gray Musk, Oriental Woodsy notes and Patchouli
Guava, grapes, ripped peels of guavas and grapes on an aged chunk of wood. It’s incredibly a photographic perfume. It evokes memories. It’s nostalgic. And yet it’s soapy, humid, balsamic, as if washed out by the basic smell of olive oil. This perfume is so many things at once. The only constant is my love for it!!
Burberry London its the weather itself. Brilliant!! A multi-layering of sensations and aromas. One of my signature scents.
Top notes are Cinnamon, Lavender and Bergamot; middle notes are Leather and Mimosa; base notes are Tobacco Leaf, Opoponax, Guaiac Wood and Oakmoss
This stuff is good. I swear when I get wafts through the air it almost comes across like a really deep woody coconut smell. Very strong too.
The dry down after a while is really really nice. Turns into this kind of smooth creamy woody silky amber scent with a hint of sweetness and a nice aromatic quality. Definitely gives me the vibe of an old school scent that you may have smelled on an older gentleman at some point. One of the good ones. The kind of scent that sort of captivated you even though you knew nothing of fragrances.
The original Pasha eau de toilette has that strong urinary smell that I find totally off putting. This new Partum retains very little of that awful DNA, but when the top notes start to fade, some clashing notes from the base arise and the result is an unpleasant smell covered up by the boozy sweetness. As a whole, Pasha perfume has some interesting nuances, but it also has its rough edges.
Clive Christian 1872 perfume by Fragscent Perfumes is High Quality impression.
Beautiful, gorgeous, green and sweet Fragrance.
It’s very close to Green Jeans though this has a slight middle skew of light florals where as GJ was about the coriander.
So, this would sit on my rare shelf of killer citrus scents like Houbigant Duc D’Vervin L’Extreme, Tres Bien Institute Cologne L’Italien, Jacques Fath Green Water EDP and vintage EDT, acqua Di Parma Colonia Club and Tom Daxons Cologne Absolu. Not one of them the same… in fact I get occasional whiffs that remind me of Houbigant Cologne Intense…
Edit: I’m reeling in my suggestion about the dry down… it tends to fade a fair bit between two and five hours to an oily residue and closely resembles Cologne L’Italien and definitely the slightly off putting green tarragon finish of Houbigant Cologne Intense – so not a great performer in longevity but when it does work it’s gorgeous and this does seem to be in the cold. Ironically this means Green Jeans as an EDT last longer!
1872 For Men by Clive Christian is a Citrus Aromatic fragrance for men. 1872 For Men was launched in 2001. The nose behind this fragrance is Geza Schoen.
Writing another comment. So what has made CDNIM so successful I think is the smoky-leathery accord combined with the lemon. This is what drives me crazy, and drives others crazy, when sniffing CDNIM in the air. I recently got my hands on the Limited Edition Perfume version (LEP) and it is powerful. A shock wave of radiating masculinity and smoky sexiness. Don’t get me wrong; Compared to the EDT the differences are negligible in terms of smell but the EDT and LEP are smokier compared to the EDP. So i would vote for the EDT and the LEP, which is more expensive but has better longevity, projection and sillage.
Club de Nuit Intense Man by Armaf is a Woody Spicy fragrance for men. Club de Nuit Intense Man was launched in 2015. Top notes are Lemon, Pineapple, Bergamot, Black Currant and Apple; middle notes are Birch, Jasmine and Rose; base notes are Musk, Ambergris, Patchouli and Vanilla.
Lemon | Pineapple | Bergamot | Black Current | Apple
Fragscent perfumes introducing high quality impression of Cool Water Men with the name of Acqua Fresca, Acqua Fresca is impression of Cool Water by Davidoff is an Aromatic Aquatic fragrance for men. Cool Water was launched in 1988. Top notes are Sea water, Lavender, Mint, Green Notes, Rosemary, Calone and Coriander; middle notes are Sandalwood, Neroli, Geranium and Jasmine; base notes are Musk, Tobacco, Oakmoss, Cedar and Amber.
Aventus by Creed. Aventus is a Chypre Fruity fragrance for men. Captures the modern woman or man scent. Captivating. Definitely need a strong personality to wear this scent. It changes character with time and carries beautifully into the night.
The former King of Kings and the scent that got me started on my fragrance journey in December of last year. The scent profile is fantastic but this has to easily the weakest fragrance. We giving you 8 to 10 hrs plus lasting guarantee.
If Elysium is Roja’s take on Aventus, then Danger is his take on Viking. A spicy, creamy fougere, it gives a lot of what people like, but takes away the pepper that was polarizing. Great scent, but the value isn’t there.
I thought Danger was the most captivating, and had the SA spray the perfume version on one wrist, and the cologne version on the other.
For several hours I kept sniffing both wrists wondering where I’ve smelled this beautiful fragrance before. Then it hit me. It smells similar to my favorite cousin’s signature fragrance – Shalimar. I was puzzled. Why would this remind me of Shalimar? Then it all came together. Roja Dove worked for Guerlain. Shalimar is from the house of Guerlain. I’m not suggesting Roja stole the recipe! However, perhaps Roja was influenced in creating Danger.
Top notes are Lavender, Lemon, Bergamot and Tarragon; middle notes are Violet, Lily-of-the-Valley and Jasmine; base notes are Cumin, Oakmoss, Vanila, Patchouli, Tonka Bean, Ambergris, Musk, Leather, Woody Notes, Cedar, Clove, Vetiver, Galbanum and Rhubarb.
Elixer 0.7 Fragscent.pk is an outdoorsy, masculine scent for men created in 2021. The refreshing blend of fresh apple, citrusy Bergamot, sweet pineapple, intoxicating rose and rich Cedar and sandalwood work well with hints of musk and Amber. This manly fragrance lasts for hours at the office and even intense workouts at the gym without fading away. This oriental-inspired blend is recommended for office wear and evening wear. Experience this potent, outdoorsy scent for yourself, and invigorate your senses.
It’s all about the dry down with Mr.Burbery EDT.Great.Sort of warm manly. Very pleasant.
But not the opening which you just have to go through to get there. Wait for it and don’t overspray.
Silage is also good if not perfect. Just right.
Longevity for EDT thumbs up. On clothes for days.
Top notes are Grapefruit, Cardamom, Tarragon and Mint; middle notes are Cedar, Birch Leaf, Nutmeg and Lavender; base notes are Vetiver, Guaiac Wood, Sandalwood, Amberwood, Benzoin and Oakmoss.
A very lovely, floral, daytime, inoffensive scent. I think most users wouldn’t have a problem with it, it is one of those scents that is quite easily liked… but I think because of its simplicity, that it doesn’t knock my socks off/amaze me either. But overall it is a very nice everyday perfume.
Top notes are Sweet Pea, Bergamot, Mandarin Orange, Grapefruit and Lemon; middle notes are Quince, Freesia, Geranium, Peach, Green Notes, Gardenia and Passionfruit; base notes are Damask Rose, Rose, Patchouli, Musk, Leather and Violet.
Tiger by Fragscent Perfumes is high quality impression of Nemer by Boadicea the Victorious. At first, this opens up with a strong earthy animalic oud. It’s dirty but smooth. Within the first 20 minutes, it gets a little stronger before the roses start to pop up. By the 30-minute mark, you get an even rose:oud ratio wrapped in a soft creamy cloud. At about the 40-minute mark, the Turkish rose takes the lead. This transition point–where the rose starts to pull away–is when you get that slight medicinal quality that some reviewers mentioned below. This is relatively short-lived, and it then falls back into the rose/oud harmony. After a little bit, the oud pulls up, but by now it’s morphed into a rich silky caress with sprinkles of soft powder. At this point there are a few cameos here and there; little bursts of green, fresh (almost citrusy), spicy notes—just little pop-ups like little fireworks.
After a lovely display, there comes the encore right back with the animalic oud, but instead of the cameos, you get little pair-ups of rose/patchouli, rose/sandalwood, rose/musk. As it starts to settle, it wraps you in a warm blanket and rocks you back and forth between the amber/vanilla/sandalwood and powdery/rose/oud combos echoing the latter towards the very end.
