1 Million Prive Paco Rabanne Men’s Fragrance Review: Here’s What It Smells Like

Wednesday, 20th November, 2019

Paco Rabanne One Million Prive

When you think of men’s fragrances which have been popular in the last 10 years, you can probably guess that Paco Rabanne One Million would be up there.

It seemed right upon the release, every guy owned it, and yes, I am one of them.

And it was for a good reason, it was, and still is to a certain point, a good scent. I think of it as one of those which got really popular early on, and if you’re into scents like me, you don’t really wanna be wearing the same as every other guy, so I wear it less.

Different Strengths and Concentrations Of Men's Fragrances

What’s the difference between eau de toilette and aftershave?

If that’s something you’ve asked yourself (or the Internet) you’re not alone.

These days there’s cologne, eau de toilette, eau de parfum, cologne and even a couple of others. Are these just buzzwords, or is there a difference? It’s true they are not the same, and it’s not such a difficult thing to understand.

So what is the difference between eau de toilette, parfum, cologne and eau de parfum?

Clinique For Men Aloe Shave Gel Review – Is It Any Good?

Wednesday, 18th September, 2019

Clinique For Men Aloe Shave Gel Review

I got a Clinique For Men grooming set quite a while back, and since I was running low on my usual shave gel, it was the perfect time to try out the Aloe Shave Gel from the set.

The full bottle which you can buy comes in a 125ml bottle, and since this was part of a pack, it comes in a nice little sample size of 41ml, so around 1/3 of the size of a full bottle.

How does Clinique For Men Shave Gel stack up?

Here’s my thoughts.

The Best Sweet And Floral Fragrances For Men This Summer

Hey guys!

So we’re right in the middle of the summer, and you’ve probably already read my best men’s summer fragrances post, which lists the scents you can wear this season which are all really top colognes. But what if you want something that little bit different? What about something sweet, or floral?

Well, I’ve put together this list, the best sweet and floral fragrances for men. They work best in the summer, and they’re the scents which are just that little bit different. Most men’s fragrances have that bit of manly, masculinity to them, which I do like. But I also like something a little different, which is where these scents come in.

All the scents in this list are either fruity, sweet, floral or fresh…In some cases, some will have more than one note. Some are a bit marmite, you’ll either love them or hate them. The good thing about these kinds of scents is that not a lot of guys wear them, so you’ll stand out and be unique.

Here’s the best sweet and floral fragrances for men you can wear this summer.

Lacoste Elegance Men's Fragrance Review

I’ve already told you about my Summer of 2006, and how my Lacoste Cool Blue takes me right back there. It was a great Summer, and the next year I had another good one, and with that came a new scent. once again from Lacoste, this was Lacoste Elegance.

So it was the Summer of 2007, and I needed a new fragrance. I already owned a few, bought some more, but for one reason or another, I took my bottle of Lacoste Elegance with me on holiday. I think I took another bottle, but this is the one which I remember the most. I went to Bulgaria in the Summer, and this was a great fragrance for the nights.
