#266 Inspired by Tom Ford's Beau de Jour demands a fresh, commanding entrance with top notes of Provence lavender and lavdender, which smoothly transition into the herbal heart notes of African rosemary, green geranium and mint, contrasting with a warm scent of oak moss and basil.
At the base, sensual and woody notes of amber and patchouli evoke a musky warmth. Together, the result is a long-lasting and sublime fragrance for men that is both sophisticated and energetic.
#267 Inspired by Hermes' new H24 is WOW. Just like most men, H24 has numerous layers. It starts off bracing and crisp with herbaceous clary sage and settles down into a second-skin softness, thanks to Peruvian rosewood essence (which, it’s worth noting, doesn’t actually smell woody so much as green and slightly spicy) and a man-made molecule called sclarene, said to mimic the scent of hot irons on textiles.H24 starts out warm and soft, with a distinctly rhubarb-esque woodiness. Convey an aura of a perfectly groomed gentleman with H24, a masculine fragrance that combines classic notes with the hint of something deeper and maverick in all its layers.
#268 Inspired by Jean Paul Gaultier's Scandal is fab! As the starting point they took a “knock-out” freshness, sage and the full-fruit mandarin, pulp and seeds included. That’s the head. Next, they brought in an uppercut “contact” with an overdose of totally addictive tonka bean, to create a truly delectable skin note. That’s the heart. Finally, they summoned into the ring a sensual vetiver to introduce the vibrant force of freshly cut wood. That’s the base. In all these points of delicious tension, a fragrance that boxes in all categories.
Top Notes: lavender, lemon zest, apple, smoke, earthy notes
Base Notes: patchouli, vanilla, lavender, vetiver

#271 Inspired by Dolce and Gabanna Light Blue Forever is amazing! The fragrance opens with Light Blue’s signature fresh top notes, an addictive duo of crisp Granny Smith apple and tangy Calabrian lemon, extracted using the traditional “sfumatrice” technique which allows the lemon to be expressed in its entirety. The perfume blooms with a new sunny floral heart of orange blossom and voluptuous white flowers, creating a joyful sun-soaked bouquet. This sensual heart gives way to a signature trail of Virginia cedar and cashmere woods, which melt into sun-warmed skin, enveloped by a seductive caress of white musks.
Top Notes: Pink pepper, elemi, bergamot, grapefruit, cinnamon, saffron, paprika
Base Notes: Tobacco, leather, vetiver
#406 Inspired by SpiceBomb is an explosive and extrovert oriental - woody and spicy composition. When men hear spice they may think of an older style fragrance- but this is not the case with this energetic timeless scent. Blended spices with sensual undertones; creating two diametrically opposed fragrant accords: 1. the addictive and fiery one and 2. the explosive and icy one. The fiery accord contains notes of chili, saffron, leather, tobacco, and vetiver. The explosive one includes bergamot, grapefruit, elemi, and pink pepper.
#407 Inspired by Prada Luna Rossa is one of our favourites at Valley Of Roses. This is a timeless, fresh, and memorable scent suitable for all ages. It was named after the sailboat and the sailing team "Red Moon" or Luna Rossa, which participates in the American Cup competitions. The new fragrance, considering its name, draws its inspiration from the world of extreme sailing, prestige, marine nature, and passion for innovation and victory. The intensity and freshness of accords are emphasized by the use of classical notes in new, innovative ways. Those notes include lavender absolute and bitter orange in the top, clary sage and spearmint in the heart, and ambrette absolute and ambroxan molecule in the base.

Louis Vuitton Meteore features the stand out notes of Pink Pepper, Vetiver, Sicilian Orange, Pepper, Indonesian Nutmeg, Mandarin Orange, Guatemalan Cardamom, Tunisian Neroli and Calabrian Bergamot.
Météore kicks off with a burst of citrus set in a blue-ish frame and dotted with different types of pepper.As it dries down, Météore is a juicy orange with a strong amber and vetiver note sitting at the base. It all comes together as quite sharp, especially with all of the remaining pepper notes wafting up from the heart of the fragrance.

Base Notes: papyrus, rose, resins, ebony tree, guaiac tre
#422 Inspired by Tom Ford's Ebene Fume is amazing! Ébène Fumé opens with a soft woody smokiness tinged with labdanum and leather. It’s calming, serene and wonderfully subtle. As the perfume develops, the incense loses a bit of its sharpness and a smooth and slightly creamy cistus enters. At this point, the perfume feels like a sheath of light leather is embracing your skin. Hints of florals help to make the creation more rounded which helps to keep it from becoming too smoky. Beyond that, the perfume doesn’t develop much except for the addition of a lightly sweetened guaiac woody note. Ébène Fumé isn’t a game changing perfume, but it’s perfect for those times when you are looking for quiet reflection.
The woods were noticeably drier after 15 minutes of settling on my skin as the papyrus note emerged. As the incense receded to the background, Ebene Fume became creamy, dry woods and aged leather with a modicum of resinous sweetness. I felt like the sweet, lightly spiced resins added more warmth and smoothed out the composition, though the incense was more of a blown out haze after an hour of wear. It was a more linear journey, which is not a bad thing so long as you enjoy those notes, and it only sweetened and became creamier over the next few hours in the drydown.
Top Notes: leather, bergamot, lemon, holly, rosemary
Base Notes: tea, lily-of-the-valley, Tonka bean, almond, amber, benzoin
