• Hey friends, today I'm taking a look at Zara Vibrant Wood which is a fragrance available on Zara's website for under $30. This does come off as a clone-type fragrance of a very popular men's release that most of you will recognize. As always thanks for watching!

    I did spray on my hand Vibrant leather on one vibrant wood on the other and went to work to ask what they. Liked I like vibrant leather but all the girls at work like vibrant wood so there you go

    I like Vibrant Leather and Vibrant Leather Oud which is nice,more mature and woody scent.Don't get Oud from it much but i for sure get woods

    i can see why it’s similar to la nuit de l’homme but it’s not that prominent.
    i think it’s not a lndlh with a twist, instead it is a nice, almost unique tea scent with a lndlh twist. it’s very nice but i have to agree that it has a horrible atomiser and only an okay performance.

    I used to wear zara frags I had about 8 and still have 4. But as frags started becoming a hobby and I started collecting more designer and niche fragrances like dior homme and amouge reflection. Ngl the zara fragrances I look back at as a waste of money and time. I can remember having to spray 20 times yes 20 through out my working day just so that I could smell it on my skin. I would recommend anyone that was in my position just save 20 more bucks and buy versace pour homme or montblanc explorer. Just my own experience with zara and not trying to start a debate.

    L'occitane has terrible atomizers too, that's a shame, coz I think they have very nice fragrances, like eau de baux

    Hi, if you have the chance get Zara Noble Palo Santo. Very unique long lasting fragrance. I’ve never smelled any fragrance with the Palo Santo note........

    Too bright. Looked better before! Your skin color looks like you are in desperate need of some oxygen! You are a little bit whiter than Casper the Ghost at this point.

    Perhaps just me, but I preferred the previous camera angle. You're pretty expressive with your hands (in the best possible way) and I think it loses something with zoomed in angle. Definitley too bright, the video looks washed out. Otherwise content is top notch as always!

    Boxerdog 2 months ago +2

    You can get the yellow trussadi reflleso for 30$ a tester bottle which smells identical to lanuit delhomme (sorry for my spelling) , and reflleso has a much better performance than zara and lanuit.

    I like the brighter lighting and it looks like you are out of the director's chair too. Not that the lighting is better just more reminiscent of your older videos - when you 'went over to the dark side', so to speak, it threw me for a loop - especially not being able to see your collection behind you.

    Ringlights work well. Remember, the closer the source, the softer the light (the further the source, the harsher the light)

    This December I went in a shopping spree with my sister to buy a bunch of female fragrances for our cousins and aunts (8 different fragrances in total to give as gifts.) We smelled probably about 30+ female fragrances, including some rather expensive designer ones. One of my favorites was actually from Zara, but can't remember the exact name, will try to find out.

    I noticed the image of Vibrant Leather Cologne (not Vibrant Wood) when you flashed the 'Summary' and 'Performance' page.. this one seems so-so, thanks for the review. By the way, at first I liked Vibrant Leather Cologne, but then it smells just like lemony cleaner.. not even sure why they used the term 'leather'...

    Hehehe Timmy put Vibrant Leather Cologne as the topic pic? Nein nein nein nein!!!! 🤣🤣 Haven't smelled it, but methinks Y Collection is probably the better La Nuit dupe. Warm, clovey honey goodness. I layer that stuff like a bous. Or as we say up here in Canada, boos.

  • Nate Adams no nm jjhb
    Nate Adams no nm jjhb 2 months ago +2

    I’m going to make a meme of Ashton.
    Mentioning how many times he says “guys” during a review...
    See how long it takes for Ashton to ban me.. haha.
    I actually like Aaron Hughes, but can also see where some bashing comes from.. But it seems the reason he banned Ashton from IM is pretty silly.. it was a simple harmless joke..

    • Nate Adams no nm jjhb
      Nate Adams no nm jjhb 2 months ago

      Hmm.. That seems strange... Ashton is usually pretty anti-drama and doesn’t insert himself into situations where drama may occur in the fragrance community... I would think he would be one that Aaron may want to have communication with ??
      Either way... It all seems a bit too much. Like I said, I tend to enjoy Aaron’s reviews and opinions... while I may not agree and as another stated, he can get a little to judgmental of who he thinks would wear a fragrance, it is interesting to listen...
      But it seems drama may follow him wherever he goes..

    • Adam Hirshfield
      Adam Hirshfield 2 months ago +1

      You mean this person formerly known as Aaron Terence?
      Quite a transformation over 7 years but from fame-seeking hairdresser to master perfumer is a bit of a stretch. Kudos to him for the change in career direction and personal reinvention, but it is mostly gift of the gab and blagging. Seems to have served his new career focus well so I guess if you live, breathe and talk having stepped into that persona eventually you can really become it.

    • Bill Corben
      Bill Corben 2 months ago +1

      @Brandon Bielhy Totally agree. He is kinda dramatic with his reactions. It's kinda dumb

    • Brandon Bielhy
      Brandon Bielhy 2 months ago +1

      Bill, Ashton put up a meme that mocked ATH’s reactions to fragrances he reviews using Waka Flaka so Aaron blocked him on social media. It was all in fun from Ashton’s perspective but apparently Aaron wasn’t too pleased. Personally, I recognize dude is an expert in perfumery and uses his chemistry degree to augment that perfectly but I feel he’s overly dramatic and over-the-top in his assessments of fragrances. I like Fragmental but when Aaron’s on there, his personality tends to wear on me to the point where it’s unwatchable, just my opinion tho. To each their own.

    • Ashu
      Ashu 2 months ago

      Firstly, did Ash delete the video discussing this? And Second Aaron actually commented on that video and said he had Ash blocked way before and that he did that because he didn't want to work with Ash and didn't want to deal with the drama of the frag com, and that's why he only decided to work with BFL and Chris fromFrag mental 🤷🏽‍♂️ honestly I like Aaron but feels contradictory when he goes around blocking everyone and then says he doesn't want drama 🙄
