The great silence
In my review of the sister fragrance of "Mon Ame", "Genevieve", in which I also explained something about the brand, I described "Genevieve" as a classic with a dash of modernity. "Mon Ame" is the other way round: the fragrance is not based on a traditional family of fragrances that I know, but seems to me very new and hardly comparable to anything I know, but nevertheless - perhaps because of its value and its renunciation of dissonant effects - it has a classic effect in the best sense of the word
It is extremely difficult for me to recognize individual scents, even after looking at the scent pyramid. Apart from the iris and the citrus notes, I can't isolate a single scent, but I have a few false positives: I think I can sense lavender and green herbs, but they're supposedly not there. The iris is striking, but by no means flat dominant, it is dimmed in its sweetness as well as in its bitterness, reduced by other notes, herbaceous perhaps, but less in the sense of a covering than rather in the sense of a damping or cancellation, as when light of different colours collides
Due to the lack of a sure feeling for individual notes, the subjective impressions are in the foreground: "Mon Ame", "My soul", is an incredibly grounded and stable, resting, calming and soothing, almost meditative scent. Like his sister Genevieve, he conveys elegance and sovereignty. In his heart he is most likely to be described as flowery, but anything but from a sweet or harmless-cheerful young girl's floweriness, rather soft, soft (but also this scent densely woven again), discreet, distinguished, perhaps even knowledge-melancholic.

The fragrance changes, but I can't describe a clear course (as I can hardly describe the individual notes anyway); after 2 to 3 hours I feel a hint of ambry freshness, after four hours a more lively lavender freshness, then again a floral creaminess, after eight hours spicy and woody impressions and - I'm quite sure of that - clay candies. In this final phase, "Mon Ame" is more of a men's fragrance. Even before, it is certainly wearable for men, at least that's what I think (I have reason to doubt whether the ladies around me see it the same way). However, perhaps rather for the gentleman with a refined way of life; to a youthful and metaphysical free nature boy he fits at most like a fist to the eye.

One final word on the fragrance: I feel the fragrance to be rather cool thermally and yet, I myself don't know how it goes together, occasionally as from a sluggish, almost sultry sensuality.

A final word on both Genevieve and Mon Ame: Voilà, after the great Czech brands Astrid and Alpa (drugstore shelves, cheap, shaving lotions and colognes, old company stories), I have now found a favourite with my little Slovak sister (niche, exclusive distribution channels, EdPs, expensive, new foundation made a bit old). They've got it olfactory thick as a fist behind their ears, the Western Slavs. Does anyone have any tips for Polish fragrances?

From the wooden donkey in the flower field

The beauty of things lives in the soul of whoever looks at them.
(David Hume, philosopher)

From my point of view, "Mon âme" did not spare beauty, even though I discovered it bit by bit. A scent of iris that doesn't take me by surprise, but that slowly binds me to itself. Only after repeated wearing does the perfume for me not only consist of the iris and sandalwood. My attention is increasingly drawn to the softer notes, which only appear after hours and make the composition appear much softer.

The already often slightly woody scented iris is reinforced by the sandalwood and the citrus notes and the Davana do not peel out so clearly in the opening, but let "Mon âme" appear friendly and light. This impression of a small stubborn wooden donkey in the middle of an iris bed stretches over a long time and in a touch of impatience I once again question my sense of smell, because on my wrist I can recognize ahead of time lily of the valley, jasmine, some patchouli and the tonka bean with its discreet almond scent.

It would be even nicer if a perfume would surrender to the dictates of time, and so it lets me stew between light iris and woods for hours, until sometime around the wooden donkey the iris bed turns into a flowering meadow and the flower cups add their interwoven scent to that of the iris and the sandalwood.

Undoubtedly the foreplay of the perfume for hours has its charm. The minimalist duet of iris and sandalwood is beautiful, but seems serious to me, a bit stubborn and at some point monotonous. In my opinion "Mon âme" develops its full splendour by the addition of the floral notes and the base. In its complete appearance I find this fragrance soft, varied and extremely winning.

In spite of the flower meadow later on, I believe that gentlemen could also like "Mon âme". The shelf life is at least twelve hours and the Sillage I would estimate as medium strong, but in the upper range lying. Unlike Genevieve, I don't think Mon âme is vintage
