SPRING FRAGRANCES '17


I wanted to compile a little Guide of some of my favourite fragrances that you need to look out for this Spring Season!

Within this Guide, I will be talking about my experience with each fragrance, and I will be covering the most important aspects of any fragrance; 

  1. Notes featured within the fragrance
  2. Longevity
  3. Sillage
  4. & the scent itself

     DIESEL - ONLY THE BRAVE: HIGH

- Top Notes: Ginger, Mint, Grapefruit, Yuzu

- Middle Notes: Geranium

- Base Notes: Amber, Woody Notes

The opening of Only The Brave: High begins with a fresh, citrusey burst that soon settles and dries down into a more woodier and spicy feel. The longevity of the fragrance lasted for up to 5-6 hours upon my skin which I found rather impressive in terms of how light it felt, and the sillage was light-medium which I would have expected given that Only The Brave: High is an Eau De Toilette! I found the fragrance to be better suited for daytime, and was an overall clean, fresh scent!

PACO RABANNE -    INVICTUS: INTENSE

- Top Notes: Black Pepper, Orange Blossom

- Middle Notes: Laurels, Whiskey

- Base Notes: Ambergris, Salt, Amber

Out of these fragrances listed, the Invictus: Intense is one of those that gained me a lot of compliments! A more intense, powerful version of the Paco Rabanne - Invictus original, but any similarities stop there.

I found that this version was more dense, and sat on my skin for up to 4-5 hours. The sillage was medium-heavy, and I found this fragrance to be better suited for a cooler, Spring evening!

        RITUALS - OASIS VERTE

- Top Notes: Pink Pepper, Grapefruit, Lime

- Middle Notes: Ginseng, Bourbon Geranium, Rhubarb, Violet

- Base Notes: Vetiver, Patchouli, Atlas Cedar, Oak

A strong, earthy fragrance that opens with a sharp burst of the woody and citrus notes. The longevity of Oasis Verte lasted for up to 6-7 hours on my skin, and the sillage was heavy, with a loud projection. I found this fragrance better suited for the daytime.

PENHALIGONS -        ROARING RADCLIFF

Top Notes: Bergamot, Tarragon, Rum

Middle Notes: Ginger, Rose, Tobacco

Base Notes: Amberwood, Beeswax, Cinnamon, Honey, Leather, Tonka Bean

My personal favourite as Roaring Radcliff certainly lives up to its namesake! The opening of Roaring Radcliff is sweet, and settles with a muskier, smokier feel to the fragrance. A loud projection, that isn't afraid of drawing attention to itself, perhaps more suited for the confident, collected gentleman.

The longevity lasted for an impressive 7-8 hours, the longest lasting within this guide! Definitely more suited for the evening/nighttime I found! I also must point out that I particularly love the design of the bottle, unique and quirky!

          DAVID BECKHAM - MADE OF INSTINCT

- Top Notes: Grapefruit, Fennel, Carambola

- Middle Notes: Violet Leaf, Sage, Pink Pepper

- Base Notes: Cashmere Wood, Balsam Fir, Moss

Made Of Instinct is a woody, yet fruity fragrance. The opening begins with the sweetness of the Grapefruit note, and soon dries down into a woody, more 'green' fragrance!

The longevity of Made Of Instinct lasted for 4-5 hours upon my skin, and the sillage was light-medium. I would recommend wearing this fragrance during the daytime, perfect for that cooler Spring day.
