Fragrance Review - Fan Di Fendi Acqua

Fan Di Fendi Acqua is a super cheapie and yet another one of my blind buys. It was released in 2013 as a flanker to Fan Di Fendi. With all the usual fresh notes I like, I didn’t think I could go wrong with this one.

The ad campaign featured Mark Ronson, before the release of Uptown Funk with Bruno Mars a year later, in a crisp white suit against a backdrop of warm blue ocean and sky. This all evokes the idea of where Fan di Fendi Acqua’s fragrance journey should take you.

Fragrance Review - Mont Blanc Legend Spirit

This is my second Mont Blanc fragrance review, and I've seen this one get quite a few good reviews, so I thought I'd try out Mont Blanc Legend Spirit. This is a 2016 flanker to the original Mont Blanc Legend released in 2011.

Obviously a blind buy from Amazon, so I got a smaller bottle, just in case it wasn't for me. According to Mont Blanc, Legend Spirit is an unpretentious versatile scent.

Fragrance Review - Ferrari Bright Neroli

I’ve wanted a Neroli fragrance for a while. It’s a scent taken from the bitter orange tree, and rumour has it, that it’s one of the ingredients in Coca-Cola’s secret recipe... and I love Coca-Cola! I also love citrus scents (trying to decide which of the zesty lemon fragrances to get).

I saw that Ferrari’s Bright Neroli was getting lots of positive reviews on YouTube, and whilst I usually disregard brands like Ferrari when it comes to anything other than cars, for the price this is going for, I thought why not.

Fragrance Review - Mont Blanc ‘Individuel’

Originally launched in 2003, Mont Blanc ‘Individuel’ is often compared to Creed’s Original Santal, despite that coming out a few years later. I’ve never smelled Original Santal, so can’t comment on that, but what I can tell you about is what I think of Individuel.

This was a complete blind buy from Amazon due to seeing it discounted massively. I love the Mont Blanc brand, and long for one of their fountain pens, even though I rarely do any kind of long form handwriting these days!

I Built a Gaming PC!

It often surprises people that I’m actually a massive geek. I’m a child of the 80’s, so things like Star Wars and Star Trek we’re important parts of growing up. We always had a computer in the house for as long as I can remember. We started with a32K BBC Micro, before I bought a second hand48K ZX Sinclair Spectrum(which I still have at Mum and Dad’s somewhere!)

I still have my original Gameboy sitting on the shelf of my flat. It still works, although I only have Tetris here. My copies of Super Mario, Kirby’s Dreamland and Megaman 3 are somewhere at my Mum & Dad’s with my Spectrum.

Home Cinema Upgrades

Over Christmas, the amp I had connected to my TV decided it didn’t want to play anymore. This meant for the past few weeks I’ve been suffering with the rather lacklustre sound from my TV’s built in speakers. There was only so much of that I could take, and with all these movies I’m planning to watch, I thought it was probably time to upgrade anyway!
