Montale
by EvitaVilla | Perfumes & Brands
...Montale has the reputation to use synthetic oud. And honestly, they gain their reputation only with influencers (I had 2 or 3 French influencers in my mind, and they are clowns). Also their shop in Paris is a total joke. Too many red flags for me. One of the most beautiful oud I have ever smelt is RuadeRuade , but it's an expensive one.

eBay Buyer Made Poor Decision on Chanel No. 22
by EvitaVilla | Perfumes & Brands
...A lot of bad decisions here ... but I bet someone learns their lesson today.When I was young (and innocent) and when LV bags were not as expensive as they are today, I bought a LV bag on Ebay for a supposed good price. The seller created a whole story of their job at a LV factory in Italy  (BS at its finest) bla bla bla... The bag was of course totally fake... Since then I don't buy on Ebay.

SALTED CARAMEL AND SALTY VANILLAS
...I suggest Sea Salt CaramelSea Salt Caramel , it's rather unusual as it's not too sweet and has a fresh and clean vibe. Creamy but not gourmand.I am also thinking at Mystic IncenseMystic Incense , this one is not sweet at all, but mixing incense with salt caramel is interesting.For a sweet one, I suggest Lait de VanilleLait de Vanille , I had the opportunity to test it (in my search for my ideal vanilla) and even there is no salt on the notes list, it has a salty vibe.

Best animalic fragrances
...Have you ever smelt Sécrétions MagnifiquesSécrétions Magnifiques ? It's definitively the most animalic scent I have ever smelt.But never ever blind buy it, you might find it repulsive. I had the opportunity to test it last week and the lady at the shop sprayed it outside. It has a soft and almost innocent opening but it becomes quickly a scent from hell.

Best masculine rose fragrance
by EvitaVilla | Perfume Recommendations
...Did someone try Rose & CuirRose & Cuir ?It's an interesting rose without rose and despite it's classified in women categorie, it's more masculine than feminine. My husband, a big bald man with a beard, borrows my bottle regularly and he doesn't smell like a Delina princess 😄

Perfume as a medicine
by EvitaVilla | Perfumes & Brands
...When it comes to perfumes, going back to where it started and reducing your collection to those which really count (brings back good memories or give comfort) is not a bad idea. We are all allowed to enjoy a "simple" Air du désert marocain or Air du Temps or Eau de Rochas each time everything (and I am not reducing "everything" to perfumes) is overwhelming and out of control.I bet we are many to share this state of mind these days.Haut les coeurs !

Fruity summer fragrances that don’t smell juvenile

... I sprayed it on a paper note as a reminder and want to add that after a moment the tea base note takes the power over the musk and rhubarb stays there all along.
