Etro Greene Street Review

Etro Greene Street_100ml_EdT

Greene Street is the second perfume I tested from Etro, and one from which I had huge expectations. Coming after Messe de Minuit, one of my pillars in the incense benchmark (although on the last position!), it is understandable why I imagined nothing but the best.

YOSH Sombre Negra Review

Just when I thought I wasn’t fortunate enough to have a sniff on any of the two perfumes that I crave for sampling since late autumn last year, my luck turned for the best. You imagine that, in light of the fact that I was already contemplating the idea of an “acquisition in blind”, I […]
