Intro to My New Fragrance Review Series

I have a few long-time hobbies, and one of them is fragrances. It’s not a common one, which is one of the reasons I take pride in developing a unique preference and insight into this relatively niche industry. “Scent” is a damn subjective category. What some people find pleasant, could very well be harshly hated by others. I enjoy hitting fragrance stores and trying out different smells in my free time. Over the years, I have tried out possibly over a hundred different fragrances and developed a sharper sense in identifying typical notes such as citrus, bergamot, vanilla, cinnamon, pepper, leather, tobacco, and oud, to name a few. Obviously, on various occasions I might misidentify the scent notes, but overall I’d like to believe myself to be a semi-expert when it comes to perfume and cologne designs.

This post serves as an introduction to my upcoming series of short articles on the fragrances that I own. Despite being such in love with fragrances, I try not to go crazy and become an “injudicious fragrance collector”, and would only purchase a scent when I’m “really feeling it”. To date, I own and have owned around 10 different fragrances, which include (subject to change):

  • Boss Bottled (aka No. 6) by Hugo Boss
  • Mercedes Benz Intense by Mercedes Benz
  • English Oak & Hazelnut by Jo Malone
  • Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Homme EDP by Gucci
  • Jimmy Choo Man EDT by Jimmy Choo
  • CK Be by Calvin Klein
  • Black by Ferrari
  • Voyage by Armaf
  • Sauvage by Dior
  • Coach For Men by Coach

Each fragrance will have its own review as an individual post. I will not on any account persuade the reader to buy a certain fragrance or assert what’s “best” for you. I also promise to give my wholehearted opinions towards these scents, regardless of brand and price. Lastly, I am in no way associated with any of these brands — so rest assured, there will be no sponsors influencing my choice of words. Every fragrance that I write about is either purchased by me or given to me as a gift by family.

That’s all for today, I’m really looking forward to putting out the reviews in the coming weeks.
