Cartier Les Heures de Cartier: L’Heure Folle X EDT Perfume Review

Cartier L'Heure Folle perfume

Cartier has Les Heures de Parfum Collection. It’s a collection of more “exclusive” perfumes (AKA in fewer doors). I’ve tried quite a few of them and I’m actually surprised by how many of them that I like. For example, I like L’Heure Folle, a fruity (sans florals) fragrance.

Malle Carnal Flower EDP Perfume Review

Malle Carnal Flower
She’d sit very close to me…and she smelled of tuberoses, which is not my favorite perfume, not by a long shot.”

Blooming Dream Quattro perfume

Aren’t we all sick of winter? Well, let’s try to break out of this winter funk with “green” perfumes that bring to mind spring buds and summer sunshine.

Instead of household chores, I’m reminded of old school masculine fragrances from the 1950’s. It’s lemon, pine and spicy black pepper. If it were a color, it’d… Continue reading

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male EDP Perfume Review

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Mâle is a classic, a real blockbuster worthy of its own space in the Perfume Hall of Fame¹. This perfume, even 20 years after its release, can still be smelled on a friend, a stranger waiting at the crosswalk, maybe even you or a loved one…it’s still everywhere. After its successful release, It’s inspired many impostors (from designer to niche). And I even swear that I’ve sniffed spray starch and laundry detergent trying to… Continue reading | 9 Comments
