Intimately Beckham Men (2006)

Cheap, short-lived, yet sexy. Having a booty call? Beckham got your back.

As expected on a night like that, it starts with Liquor, so this is a ted boozy, thick and sweet. A delicious blend of amber and cardamom backboned by a jammy grapefruit. As you need something that will work fast, this is pretty much linear, and won’t change much, that sweet and delicate first impression will linger on. The amber becomes more prominent, joining there is the patchouli, making it even more tasty and a bit chocolaty, really appealing. It progresses turning pretty light, warm and comfy, like the afterwards spiced tea and cuddle. Don’t expect much out of projection, the name pretty much says it all. 
This is a very soothing fragrance, very seductive and comfortable to wear, so don’t get scared by the celebrity brand behind this. Metrosexual-sexiness in a bottle. Really think you should run to the next drugstore and give this one a try, and if you do, let me know.

Au Masculin (2000)

My First Olfactory travel, what an amazing adventure when this happens.
This woody-oriental juice feels like a dream, so welcome to the magic and enchanted forest of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by William Shakespeare. Your journey starts as you walk through the woods, sort of humid and cold feeling. Anise and  licorice notes that will swipe you of your feet, and make you see things that you thought didn’t exist. As you get lost into the dream, a powdery vanilla with a creamy sandalwood, will calm you down just as an alluring enchantment. As a Magic dust that makes you fall in love, be aware and ready for it, cause once exposed might not have an antidote. This fragrance is fall in a bottle to me, so get ready for the season to come. Just stay away in case you don’t like Anise.
If you wanna fall in love or is trying to make someone fall for you… If you want experience something new and travel just by closing your eyes, give this one a try, and let me know.

Z Extreme (2008)

Another attempt from the Italian Leading mens clothes house on a fragrance. This one had a lot of wearing taken out of me. Perfectly designed for a summer weather, it does great when living in the tropics. The Extreme version does have a back bone from the orignal Z, but this improves a lot from the first one. Not performance wise, but the smell. It keeps the sour-tart opening, yet this time quite citrusy. It dries down fast and sadly doesn´t change much, just become woodier as time passes by.
Oh well, if you are going to spend summer vacations on the southern Italy, or anywhere in between the tropics, give this one a try, and let me know.

Man Eau Fraiche (2006)

I really like when Perfume companies match the vibe from the fragrance with the bottle, this cut piece of ice tells you that this is going to be a cooling and fresh scent. That is how it starts, fresh and citrusy, sparkling and energetic, with carambola being the main note. Out of the Blue, it becomes green. Plenty sage and tarragon served on a cedar board. Perfect for teens or if you are looking for great workout-summery scent. Still, in my opinion a generic fragrance, middle of the road, this one was trying to be something and end up being nothing. It doesn’t have strong characteristics, it doesn’t push in any direction, with that being said, it lacks personality.
Even with all that, there is a nation out there of lovers of this, so give this one a try, and let me know.

Mora Bella (2005)

Have you ever wished to go back in time, when you were a child?
The name “Mora Bella” (Beautiful Blackberry), makes completely sense once you smell it. Starts pretty sweet and fruity, wild berries colored, just as a raspberry jam. It dries down to a creamy and musky fruity smell, slightly flowery, just like putting your head into a Froot Loops box while sitting on a jasmine garden. It doesn’t last long on my skin, yet for the time being you will get smiles, so there’s nothing better than that. A sweet fruity-floral, I pictures this as being the best signature scent for teenage girls, or even if you are in search for child memories, with that in mind g
ive this one a try, and let me know.

Usher He (2007)

“Appearance is something you should definitely consider when you’re going out. Have your girlfriend clip your nails or something like that.”

The Designer fragrance world has a lot of issues, and this fragrance falls into one of them,
Starts pretty interesting, sliced pineapples paired with some melons, soon (very soon) to be mixed with a nice and sour, as it should be, lavender. On the other hand, in a disastrous manner, it fades into the classic and non expensive musky-woodsy base. Fragrances made to sell out of a blotter. Still, I can even see its market, not only for the versatility, but for its mass market appeal. Like every coin this one has two sides, if you like celebrity scents and are on a budget go for it, try it, otherwise, waste no time, but still, let me know.

Allure Homme Sport (2004)

Sport, really?!
Well, every time we read that word, we imagine a very light and citric fragrance. So, I personally don’t agree with that word there (in the name, I mean), because the dry down is too thick to be considered a sport fragrance. Starts very citrusy and energetic with a blast of oranges, like having a glass of an orange pop on a deck of a sail boat. On the other hand, it dries down to a light woodsy with loads of white musk, becoming creamy and dense, with tons of tonka bean. From all fragrances I’ve reviewed so far, this is the most “signature worthy”, Mr. Versatile in a bottle, I can see anyone grabbing this at any situation. Definitely a compliment getter, yet the saddest part is that it doesn’t last long on my skin, cause I do enjoyed it quite a lot.
You must try this one out, but don’t do it on blotter, try it on your skin, and don’t forget to let me know!
