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!

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

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

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.
