Abbreviated perfume & fragrance reviews from one man's perspective

L’Hetre Reve by Nez a Nez

I love good surprises.  I am always hesitant with scents that are comprised with elements of leather.  I know as a man, I should embrace that rustic side of me, but I usually find that the leather is just too heavy. When I first applied this to my skin, the leather was clearly present, but it mixed wonderfully with the spices of cinnamon and clove.  I can live with that kind of leather.  As a unisex perfume, I thought at first that this was a decidedly a masculine scent; manly but warm and very enveloping.  By the time I arrived at work, the magic continued but on a whole other level.  Still warm, but now sweet.  The leather dissipated and out came the light floral elements, a tinge of musk and a tinge of powder.  I noticed that as the day went on, depending on what I was doing, sitting at my desk quietly or running to a meeting very busily, the scent changed… warm, cool, sweet, powdery, musky.  It was like I was applying a new scent throughout the day.  My one downside is that by the time I got home, the scent had pretty much disapearred on me.  Well, I guess that just means that I’ll have to apply some more!
