Masque Milano Tango & Luci ed Ombre ~ fragrance reviews

I love rough-and-ready amber fragrances. I'm not a fan of dainty or too-sweet (polite) amber perfumes (except in soaps or candles, and even then...). Masque Milano's Tango 1 is my type of amber; it presents a spicy amber that's singed around the edges. Show More Summary

Masque Milano Russian Tea ~ fragrance review

There’s a kind of fragrance that especially intrigues me: it’s the type that reads as warm and cool at the same time. This kind of fragrance’s notes are warm — leather, spices, wood, for instance — but its overall feeling is thin and cool, like a splash of scented water. Show More Summary
