  1. I did a blind buy with the EDP and I sprayed it on myself (1 spray) and I thought I was losing my mind. I couldn't smell a thing. I thought I got played. A few days later a sprayed 3-4 sprays and waited. I finally was able to smell it. Thanks for mentioning this. Turns out, I'm not crazy 🙂

  2. Thank you for this comparison! I find these two fragrances smell very dissimilar and a lot of people mention them interchangeably. I personally prefer the extrait! ♥️

  3. I purchased the body oil and at first I couldn’t smell it but I was getting over covid. I also got the sample of the edp. Now I can smell it buts it’s kind of bland honestly. I put the oil on and my husband said “what is that stench?” It smells awful!” So I’m paranoid to wear it around him. I am wondering if the extrait would smell better on me?

  4. I haven’t sniffed out the Extrait version yet, however I just received MFK’s gold "globetrotter" case and travel spray refills x3 of Oud Satin Mood with refills x3 of BR540 coming soon. I love the magnetic cap on the "globetrotter" case, I play with it like I’m a 5 y/o with a new toy.. lol.

  5. BR540 smells like an old man, its the same smell of a mans cologne that my dad, many men, even old men wore years ago. BR540 was out back in 70s or 80s cologne.

  6. Only the extrait for me😊 the EDP turns too medicinal on me. The extrait just smells very very good on me. I also spray only a tiny bit so for me it is definitely signature scent worthy and everyday appropriate😘

  7. Hands down, easily the best review of different between BR540 EDP Vs BR 540 ext, finally I got the answer of that one moment you are able to smell and next minute gone probably you have gone anosmic, thank you and you answered all my queries and questions… so bravo and 5 starts thumps up for this awesome rather swaasome review, could you please recommend some good online and retail options in canada Halifax, I know and Sephora and etiket , thanks in advance 👍

  8. I like 540 EDP but men seem to really not like it. I guess its for the best cuz it saves me some money. My bf thinks it smells like a hospital and I have to agree with him a little 😂

  9. I wearing the edp and been sniffing my wrist all day . It’s sooooo so good . I love it . Bought me a bottle two days ago . Great video and description btw. You got a new subscriber

  10. I’ve just recently discovered your channel. I just want to say you have a great way of explaining fragrances, sometimes I think people on here don’t explain really much about the fragrance itself. Perhaps they talk more about the story of a perfume or how it makes them feel (which is a legit way to describe it but not only what I’m usually looking for) but you actually talk about the fragrance, thank you for that.
    Also just want to say LOVE your beautiful dark hair and red lips! Not sure I could pull off such a dramatic lip but looks fantastic on you 🙂

  11. I fell for the hype, Baccarat Rouge 540 smelled like nothing on my skin. The Extrait version is a bit better but Arianna Grandes Cloud is just like it but better, way less expensive, has more projection and is longer lasting.
