Happy weekend everyone! Today, I have a different kind of review to share with you all. As you are aware we try to cover all aspects related to beauty and makeup on IBJ, we noticed we really haven’t spoken about perfumes & scents. Well, here’s a start! I will be reviewing 2 EDTs, “Tender” for Women & “Alive” for Men from a new brand called All Good Scents.
What is All Good Scents? All Good Scents aims to bring to India contemporary, modern and premium fragrances manufactured in France and that too at inviting prices. The fragrance producer of All Good Scents is one of the oldest fragrance houses in activity in Grasse, France, founded in 1779 AD. An extraordinary combination of a successful story and a human dimension; they have produced 1500 tons of fragrances & flavors till date.
First thing first I loved browsing through their site. The layout is fresh & clean. It is easy to navigate and you have all the EDPs & EDTs listed separately well under “Women” & “Men” categories. They have listed all the necessary details for each fragrance which is important for buyers to easily choose the one, that he/she would like to buy.
Apart from detailed description, I also find their feature of “Scentfinder” very useful, especially for those who are naïve to selecting fragrances that they like and are not sure what will compliment them. Believe me, I have been wearing fragrances since years now and I still get confused as to what kind of fragrance works best with my skin.
I usually prefer sticking to a particular fragrance for years, I am not really a person who really likes to experiment with new fragrances but I loved this feature of “Scentbox” by All Good Scents.
“SCENTBOX allows you to explore & try the very latest fragrance launches from the comfort of your own home or office. For just Rs 55 per tester, each edition comes with 3 fragrance samples for you to test as well as promotional vouchers so you can make some big savings on all the scents featured in the SCENTBOX.”
Isn’t this great option for those who like to experiment with new fragrances without burning huge hole in pocket?

My Review about “Tender”: Love, love, love this fragrance. Tender has become my everyday scent. I love the clean and fresh floral scent it has. If you are someone who is into floral scents then I would recommend you to try “Tender” and it will not disappoint you. With the first spray, you get a whiff of orange+vanilla (strangely it does not have vanilla, but I do get that fragrance) and after a couple of minutes it tends to settle down and works with your body’s chemistry and there after its all about Jasmine, Patchouli & Rose to me. I think this fresh floral scent will be perfect for summers but I am thoroughly enjoying it in this weather where there is a slight chill in the air. It stays fresh on me for nearly 4-6 hours which I think is good considering it is an EDT formula and not EDP. I think it’s must try for those who are looking everyday floral scent and does not want to splurge a lot.
All Good Scents “Alive” EDT Essential for Him: for the macho man. Live the life to the fullest. Be a winner of hearts. The quintessential lavender, vanilla and lemon fragrance. For the man who doesn’t have to try too hard; he’s just naturally and irresistibly macho.
Top Notes: Lavender, Rosemary, Lemon
Heart Notes: Clary Sage, Cedar, Rosewood
Base Notes: Oak Moss, White Musk, Tonka Beans

My Husband’s Review on “Alive”: So, I got my husband to use “Alive” obviously, since it’s a man’s perfume and I tell trying to get the out an elaborate experience from men is a task. All they can answer is,”Hmm, its nice!”but I tried to dig the most out of him. The packaging for both “Alive”and “Tender” is simple and neat transparent bottle with silver colored cap. My husband usually picks up a scent with ‘musk’in it and Alive is no different. It gives a punch of citrusy lemon when sprayed initially and after a while he gets a mix of white musk, lemon & cedar. The fragrance is very much like a what a men would prefer. It is strong and two sprays are enough to get him through the day. Men really don’t prefer re-applying the fragrance during the course of day and Alive is perfect for everyday man. I can smell the fragrance on him when he comes back home from work. It lasts for an entire day.
Rating: “Tender” for her: 4.5/5
“Alive” for him: 4/5
Final Verdict: For women, if you are into floral scents, then I suggest you to checkout “Tender”, it can easily be your everyday perfume. And ladies if you are looking to gift your man a nice scent which lasts entire day and as far as I know men love the musk scent, so you can checkout “Alive” for him.
