Hello and welcome to my latest fragrance commentary. Today it's about a fragrance I hadn't heard of at all. "What?" you may be asking yourselves. "Weird Don Juan de Cat doesn't know this scent? He's described over a thousand scents."
Yes, that may be true, but take a look at the number of fragrances registered at the top right of the Parfumo main page. There are more than 134000 fragrances in the database, which means that with my 1800 comments (baah, that's how long you've been stuck with me!!!) I've only described about 1,34% of all fragrances entered here. Damn, it looks like I will be trapped here on Parfumo forever... *sigh*... :D
But it must also be said that there are definitely fragrances that you simply don't hear about, where from, even if you don't even discover them in niche perfumeries. Like this one here: Wandervogel from the Spanish "fragrance smithy" 27 87 Perfumes, where the fragrance as well as the packaging are still handmade in Barcelona. But I think it's good that there are so many fragrances and fragrance brands, because you can always discover something new, even if I should have the feeling that the fragrance market is completely saturated with brands and fragrances (boah now you are surely shocked because I said something like that, aren't you? You freaks you, it's not all about fragrances, there are much cooler things out there, like Star Wars, Batman, comics and and and :DDD)
Okay, enough chatter. So let's get to the scent!
I start off with herbs and maritime notes (the saltier kind of an aquatic fragrance). I love the green notes, they smell like leaves that you grind between your fingers to absorb the great green scent. This combined with the mint smells pretty great and also very fresh. Also, the scent has a creamy leg note, which means that the maritime notes for example don't have a salty bite, but are more like the salty air on the coast, where nearby ladies might put sunscreen on their curves... uhhh I meant in general, where people just apply sunscreen, even if it doesn't smell 100% like sunscreen.
Later, the aquatic notes are a bit stronger and also slightly saltier, the described green-herbal scents remain, but now a little bit of aniseed is added, which I personally don't like so much, as aniseed has a strange and not so nice smell for me.
In the base it remains maritime, with the salt content decreasing more and more, but the other fragrances naturally become weaker as the process continues. However, the fragrance becomes slightly stuffier, perhaps because of the white flowers indicated. I rather smell less musk. All in all a fragrance that starts out interesting and nice, but unfortunately quickly becomes unspectacular. But as a simple day scent it might still be useful.
The Sillage and the durability:
The sillage is medium, neither strong nor weak. You would have to stand nearby to be able to smell the scent on one, but at least the scent doesn't get close to the body as quickly.
The shelf life of six to eight hours is also quite okay.
The bottle! The bottle is rectangular with rounded corners, shiny white and not transparent. The name and brand name are simply printed on the bottle, which ends with a white cylindrical cap. All quite simple and minimalistically modern. Not a real beauty, but okay.
Thus, migratory bird is a fragrance that is especially reminiscent of holidays and holiday resorts with its sea scents. I really could have done without the aniseed, but I am glad that it is not so strong.
I like the top note here the most, later the fragrance is a bit stuffy for me (but not soo bad like in pure floral scents), and above all it's slightly boring. All this unfortunately leads to a lower rating of the fragrance for me. But it is still worth a look, especially for all those who like such scents or want to remember holiday destinations, especially in the pandemic season, when it's a bit more difficult to enjoy a holiday, even if some idiots don't want to see it :D
In any case, you can always spray the fragrance anew if necessary to enjoy the more beautiful top note for longer.
So this scent is also usable for the summer, but I sometimes have the feeling with such scents that they could also be a little exhausting or oppressive on especially hot days.
So, that's it. I guess that brings me one comment closer to the 130000 scents. Why do I even bother with all this? Well, so that you have something to laugh about! And of course still hoping to get one or two kisses from a perfuma one day, mu ha ha ha ha :DDD
So have a nice evening and see you next time :)
