Velocity for him:
4,500 – 6,500 I smelt this on someone some months ago and it truly blew my mind. It opens up with citruses, with pink pepper and mint in the middle, and tonka bean and vanilla at the base. The sweetness comes mainly from the tonka bean, while the pink pepper and mint blended with citrus gives it a spicy zing. I highly recommend this one as it will be a definite compliment getter.
Afnan Supremacy Silver: 15,000-19,000
Fresh, little sweet pineapple which is accompanied by smoky woods. With this fragrance there is even an ashy note, which I never noticed with the other four fragrances. The fresh, unvoluminous fruit, together with the woods, has a summery masculine-elegant effect
Franck Olivier Oud Vanille: 10,000-13,000
Franck Olivier’s Oud Touch is probably one of the most famous perfumes in Nigeria.However, it came off a bit too musky for some people. Oud Vanille is a much sweeter and frutitier version of oud touch; balancing out the muskiness with a strong touch of raspberry and vanilla
Zara Rich Warm and Addictive: 10,000-12,000
This fragrance is a pure gem. It is a gourmand fragrance with notes of tobacco and honey mixed with coconut and vanilla. The way it smells in the air is so alluring and is to die for! It grabs a lot of attention.
Lattafa Her Majesty Oud– 4000-10000- This one really caught me by surprise. It’s a beautfiul floral fruit gourmand with a slight touch of oud. Mainly, you get berries, with caramel , vanilla and oud.
Pierre de La Nuit Jasmine tuberose and amber (13,000-15,000):
I first encountered this perfume a few months ago at Essenza when I was looking for something nice and affordable. This is a beautiful uplifting and refreshing feminine fragrance with notes of Bergamot, Tuberose, Jasmine and Ambergris. The performance is decent with 5 hours longevity and one hour of strong projection.
Afnan supremacy for her: (15,000-19,000):
Afnan Supremacy Purple is an oriental and fruity fragrance for women. It is very unique and long lasting and is very reminiscent to a popular niche fragrance; Erba Pura by Sospiro which is 5 times the price of this perfume.
Rihanna Reb’l Fleur Love Always(15,000-20,000):
Rihanna continues her line of luscious perfumes in the latter half of 2018 with the release of Reb’l Fleur Love Always, a remake of the original 2011 Reb’l Fleur.. It opens with top notes of plum, peach and red berries, which fade into middle notes of hibiscus, coconut, violet and tuberose. Over time, these give way to base notes of vanilla, musk, amber and patchouli. Its notes are similar to the original, but provides a heavier, more concentrated experience in this batch.
Premiere Notes Aura Tonka(25,000):
This one is a bit pricier than the rest, thus an honorable mention, But it is hands down one of the best gourmand perfumes I have smelt under 40,000 naira. It is so amazing.
