Abercrombie and Fitch First Instinct review

ABERCROMBIE & FITCH First Instinct Eau De Toilette for men

One of the brands to reckon with when it comes to top-quality wears is the Abercrombie and Fitch. If you are a fan of their top-quality casual wears, you would have noticed that Abercrombie and Fitch are also not new in the fragrance market. Over the years, they have released several different fragrances exclusively in their stores. However, if I’m to pick one of their launches that stand exceptional to me, it was the release of the Abercrombie and Fitch First Instinct cologne.

Launched in 2016 by Abercrombie and Fitch, First Instinct is the first fragrance to be sold out of the Abercrombie and Fitch boutiques. It is an irresistible Fougere Aromatic Amber that is meant for the confident men, who are not afraid to express their feelings.


Abercrombie and Fitch First Instinct is silver-grey in color and arrives in a clear glass bottle with the look of undulating water. In addition to its striated silver cap, the bottle has to its side, a silver plate that displays both the brand and the scent name.

The composition

Abercrombie and Fitch First Instinct cologne has a sophisticated fruit and floral top notes opening that will surprise many people who try this scent. The base notes comprise a mix of smooth warm amber and Suede musk, creating a faultless mix of oriental warmness and fougere elements. Although it is described as a fougère just like Fierce, one of the things I like about it is that it swerved off of the fierce architecture.

Whether you are going on a date or an important business meeting where you don’t want a scent that will be offensive, First Instinct would make a perfect choice for close contact encounters. Unlike anything else I can think of, this cologne is easy to wear, has a unique scent, and the formulation is not terribly long-lasting. This can work in its favour as the scent is extremely not heavy or overpowering (unlike other men’s cologne), making it perfect for everyday wearing.


Undeniably, this is one fragrance that will not look out of place on any dressing table. Since it is an easy-to-wear fragrance that I think many men will love, I’d suggest it as being the perfect choice when buying a perfume as a gift. I can’t imagine classy men not loving this beautiful fragrance!

Bvlgari Goldea review

Bvlgari Goldea

Over the years, Bvlgari has been a leading force in the fashion industry. It has cut out a niche in the market for those that actually know what they want with regards to an amazing product line as well as those that will never settle for anything other than perfect. If you are familiar with the name Bvlgari, you would have known that though it may be among the newest brands on the fragrance industry, it has been releasing top-quality fragrances into the market.  With several different Bvlgari perfumes to choose from, one of its recent releases and a bottle I would happily buy and buy again is the Bvlgari Goldea.

Features of Bvlgari Goldea

With an oriental and sensual fragrance, Goldea remains the unique expression of the Bvlgari perfumes. Featuring a stunningly beautiful sunny-yellow bottle which personified the light and the gold, and containing a bright, golden musk masterpiece, Goldea has a powerful scent that can stir up a sense of elegance and warmth in every feminine. It is harmless and modern, not overpowering and easy-to-wear to offices, date, night out and virtually any comfortable gathering.

The composition of Bvlgari Goldea

Goldea isn’t much fruity, but contain floral notes that are more than average. The start notes include Raspberry, crystal musk, bergamot and orange blossom. The heart consists of golden musk, ylang-ylang, and jasmine. The base notes on its own, include a mix of amber, velvet musk, papyrus, and patchouli. The mix of all these ingredients gives a juice that is sexy and charming. Goldea is a refined and an elegant fragrance, and the lasting power is quite good. Bvlgari Goldea could be worn anytime, but I prefer to wear it when the weather is not too cold or hot.


Although Bvlgari Goldea is quite expensive, it is truly worth the extra expense. It is not just the excellence of this charming perfume that gives it a high price; the packaging is also enticing and exquisite. However, it is affordable as well. Bvlgari Goldea is available in 25ml, 50ml and 90ml Eau de Parfum.


There is no doubt about Bvlgari Goldea being an amazing fragrance, but I have two objections to it. One is its lack-luster longevity for a rather expensive fragrance of its type. And two, its sickly sweet scent. To this, I will advise not to overdo it. All the same, Bvlgari Goldea is still worth having!

Mugler Cologne review

MUGLER Cologne Eau De Toilette unisex

Even though he started his career in the fashion industry, Thierry Mugler is among the leading fragrance manufacturers in France. Of all his fragrance releases, one that really got everyone talking is the Cologne. If you are looking for a perfume with sexy and an appealing scent, choosing Mugler Cologne can never be a mistake. It is nearly the perfect cologne for me; the one I don’t get tired of.


First released in 2001, Mugler Cologne is an amazing, modern and elegant fragrance for men and women who are into fresh citrus perfumes. It is a seductive Mugler creation with lots of soapy qualities, and cologne Eau de Toilette that evokes the conventional eau de cologne with its pure fresh and intoxicating scent. This captivating fragrance is captured in a sleek green designer fragrance bottle.


Mugler Cologne starts with sharp, clear green and citrus notes, which is instantly followed by a clean fresh fragrance. The top notes comprise a mix of Neroli, Bergamot, and petitgrain, with a soft white musk in its base notes. It has much of the musk so it lasts longer than the conventional colognes, but do not become irritating. Additionally, it has an inexplicable “S” note at the heart – an ingredient kept as a secret. All these ingredients are mix together to arrive at an agreement that is pure pleasure.

It is a wonderful inspiring fragrance for summer months, even when your Eau de Toilette seems too much or when you are tired of your other fragrances. Just like other Mugler releases, Cologne has a reasonable lasting power of about 4-6 hours and an inoffensive fresh scent of cleanliness, with light undertones of wood and orange blossom.


Mugler Cologne has somewhat unusual qualities of its own, which makes it very attractive and charming. However, the only shortcoming Mugler Cologne has is that after about an hour of applying it, it becomes a skin scent. Other than that, it is a nice, citrus scent to have, but I will recommend you do not overdo it.

Victoria Secret Bombshell review


If you are conversant with the fashion world, the name, Victoria Secret will not be new to you. Victoria’s Secret is a huge line of women’s premium fashion, lingerie and beauty products that are perfectly designed to make women as stunning as possible while also looking extremely seductive. Aside from being a leading brand in the cloth line business, Victoria’s Secret also takes great pride in producing top-quality and award-winning fragrances. One perfume from Victoria’s Secret fragrance collection that I may buy again and again is the Bombshell Eau de parfum for women.

Features and Composition

The Victoria’s Secret Bombshell comes in a glowy sweety bottle that is exceptionally tempting. Made from the blend of freshly cut fruity floral (Purple passion fruit, Shangri-la peony) and vanilla orchid, the bombshell has an appealing feminine scent that will make you feel sensuous in an instant as well as smelling super sweet all day long. It is light, crisp and clear with grapefruit as the note that is most prominent. The beautiful balance of the constituting ingredients gives it an energetic and sweet type of scent. Apart from making you look stunningly beautiful, it will also perform wonders for your mood.

On me, the Victoria’s Secret Bombshell has a surprising complexity and smells that is simultaneously warm and refreshing. In addition, it is easy to wear, not overpowering or murky and has an encouraging staying power, which makes it perfect for casual or office wear in summer/spring seasons.


Although the price is on the high side, it is still affordable compared to most other perfume brands. If you want to feel more comfortable and elegance, a couple spray of this scent on your outfit will offer a gorgeous smell all day long.


Overall, the Victoria’s Secret Bombshell has a pleasant scent, giving you a cool, fresh yet sexy fragrance that is perfect to be worn anytime. But be careful of the quantity you squirt, as it can be extremely strong. With the Victoria’s Secret Bombshell, a little will go a long way. Definitely, I’ll buy again!
