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!

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

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

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.

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!

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.
