Hello fellow fragheads,

Once in a while when you test hundreds of fragrances sometimes it just gets too boring perhaps or too easy. But once in a blue moon a fragrance just blows your mind. Today , minutes ago I was working on my fragrance review on Timbuktu from Artisan and this fragrance just blew my mind.

I remember when I first got it (I believe I have a video of me hating it on youtube) I hated this stuff. It was too much for my nose. This is why I test and test and test and test until my nose has wrapped itself around the scent, because hey when we buy a fragrance we don't want it to smell good to us for a few days or weeks. We want to experience it perhaps for years and decades. To really review a scent I go through the good and the bad. Initial impressions with a scent can last over a week perhaps a month but after long term use you will either get bored, hate a note or two in it, learn to love it , or just grow with the scent. Timbuktu just woke my ass up today and said hey ! I'm a masterpiece !!! Yes you are. If your a scent head and enjoy scents that challenge your nose then Timbuktu is something that you MUST try. It's not something most people would wear as a day to day fragrance but it's a work of art.



I'd like to announce today that I have decided after months of thought that I will return to youtube in September of this year. I will enjoy my break off of youtube and come back stronger then ever. I am planning to have at least 100 full reviews done and ready to shoot once I am back and hopefully the videos will continue to flow once I am back.... thank you for everyone's support and I can't wait to continue our journey together

Luckyscent Haul !

Hey guys another fragrance niche haul at luckyscent. First and foremost let's take a look at my first fragrance I bought which is Artisan's Premier Figuier. I just love figue's and the cooling sensation they give so I decided to get the very first figue based fragrance in the game which is this one. We will see if I love this one just as much as I do with Philosykos.
Next is the reason why I did the haul in the first place. I have been searching high and low for Black Afgano ever since I got the sample of the black juice. It's been rumoured to be discontinued and it was off the market for so long. Well it's back and I snatched the bottle right away. I can't wait to add this to the arsenal. Costly tho, for 1 ounce it was 150$. Much better then the ebay cost at the moment for a bottle going for 200-400.
Next is Frapin's L'humaniste. I can thank my youtube friends for this blind buy. So much hype and so much love for this fragrance so I decided to see what the fuss is about.
Talking about youtube hype. How about the Cereus line ? They are getting tons of love on youtube and I decided to blind buy number 4 and see what I can get from it. A summer scent that I am really interested to see what it gives me .

Working on....

Today is a day that I am finally done doing final touches on all uncompleted fragrances reviews. So it's time to work with some new fragrances, this is something I am always excited to do. I chose two fragrances that I have had for a few years now and are in a huge need to be reviewed. Usually I pick fragrances that I have had for a while and that I have worn already a few times so I know usually what I am getting from the fragrance which makes the testing time for these fragrances much shorter then usual. So today I picked the original He Wood. I have only reviewed He Wood Rocky Mountain Wood and gave it a great score on my channel but how will the original do when it's reviewed ? Usually flankers never outshine the original but this time I think we might see the pupil beat the teacher.

Next I picked a Givenchy fragrance. It seems like forever since I tackled this fragrance house and I chose it's gourmandish fragrance called Very Irresistible. This one is really interesting and personally I think is one of the better Givenchy fragrances on the market. We will see how it stacks up against other fragrances in the same genre.

Working on...

Since I am back working on some reviews I decided to let you guys know what I am working on at the moment. Nothing big right now just working on finishing a couple of cheapies. Including Cuba Red & Playboy Hollywood. These reviews were almost complete before I decided to hang it up so now it's just a refresher course on them and finish up my thoughts on them, they will both be future reviews in October/November 2011.

A Return to youtube ?

I'm sure most of you have heard of me taking my leave of youtube, and wondering what is in store for me. Well things have changed in the past 3 weeks for me. When I left youtube for good, I knew that the community was in good hands and that me taking a leave would not hurt the community but make it grow and others would feel motivated to bring up the level of content on their own channels. Truly I needed the time off and I needed the time away to focus on other things in life. Well at that time I knew a certain few people would let me know that I needed to stay but I never knew it would be like this. A flurry of emails and videos on youtube have showed me that this little thing I thought I was doing perhaps maybe a little bigger then I thought. It comes to the conclusion that I am thinking of returning perhaps.... let's just say I am keeping the window open. Good news if your a betting man is that I have resumed testing fragrances for reviews.
