The Body Shop Of A Man EDT

In fragrance on July 30, 2011 at 4:11 am

Notes of this cologne are bergamot, lemon, fig leaves, cedarwood, amber, teak, geranium, coriander, marine, and tarragon.

Available on 100 mL / 0.33 Fl.Oz in a matte green bottle.

Of A Man can be categorized to unisex fragrance. It also has unique smell, not overwhelming like other men fragrances out there. I love this especially on my busiest days at work, makes me fresh and constantly in a good mood. Hope TBS would release the perfume oil version, so I can carry it with me anywhere.

Oriflame Mirage EDP

In fragrance on July 8, 2011 at 9:12 am

Mirage is Oriflame’s new perfume, mysterious and enchanting. Experience the exotic journey and awaken the hidden passions with every drop of this composition; a blend of seductive elemi notes, mandarine, orange, roses, jasmine, intensive vetiver, amber, sandalwood and vanilla.

Mirage is enclosed in a special designed elegant bottle of dark green colors with golden trim, ideally suited to the magical nature of this mysterious fragrance, as it conjures images of magical charms and miraculous recipes.

Available as 50 ml EDP.

Some people say, Mirage advertisement is alike Anna Sui Forbidden Love.  I think Oriflame probably underrated because it’s a lesser known perfume house. But I do think that any new Oriflame perfume launched, it reminds me of a famous scent. They are not just copy the scent, but also picture, the bottle color.. and stealing the idea too.

Mirage has amazing silage and staying power. I love heavy perfumes since I was at junior high school, so Mirage suits me well. But this is not as heavy as Yves Saint Laurent Opium. I would rather categorize it as an evening scent, but sometimes I do wear it in the day too.

Top notes: orange, mandarin orange, elemi

Middle notes: vetiver, jasmine, rose

Base notes: sandalwood, amber, vanilla
