Deco London Lawrence EDP Perfume Review

Deco London Lawrence

Deco London is a line of perfumes inspired by vintage style and the 1920’s. Unlike many modern niche lines, the fragrance has marketed its six fragrances as either “feminine” or “masculine”. For the most part, we all know this is marketing; fragrances are enjoyed by everyone. But, I see why the line did this since vintage perfumes were often marketed this way.

I found all three of the masculine fragrances to be well-done with a versatility that should have broad appeal. They’re the sort of scents that… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Armani Code Pour Homme

 

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

It’s my birthday today, so I’m already feeling old. But, this fragrance is really making me feel old. I can’t believe that Armani Code was launched over a decade ago. I feel like this is one of those masculines that just came out, but geez, that was ELEVEN YEARS AGO! Yes, there have been many flankers, but I clearly remember this one launching in stores (so many ads in magazines too). And I clearly remembering smelling… Continue reading | 12 Comments
