At least the purple in the label flashes me
The Acqua Colonia series from 4711 has hit really well. At least the idea of creating and offering fresh Cologne fragrances with two main players under the 4711 label is not wrong. At least a few more than usable duos have emerged, such as Mandarine & Cardamom or Lavender & Thyme, whereby the latter unfortunately disappeared quite quickly from the German market, because allegedly the demand was not sufficient. In other countries, this refreshing thyme-lavender combination is much more appreciated.

What I like about Saffron & Iris is not only the attractive purple label, but also the consistent retention of the freshness theme. Of course, in addition to the two main actors, there is a citric and bergamot-like accompanying tone, which refers to the origin of the house 4711 and makes the composition summery and fluffy, but officially invites you to relax.

Unfortunately, hardly anything is noticeable from the saffron. And also the iris is less powdery as one would believe it, but rather on the edge of synthetics. This saddens the mood a little, even if this Acqua Colonia offshoot with its lovely, gentle and minimally harsh nature exudes at least a good mood. Although this flowery-spicy mixture is declared as unisex, which is true, the tendency then goes more in the direction of young Fräulein (can you even say that nowadays without being branded by feminists?) than in the direction of bachelors.

Sooner or later I will personally search for Lavender & Thyme, even if I don't like that purple as much as Saffron & Iris does.

We had beautiful hair....
Also this AC scent had to be in my collection-already alone, because I love sooooo many of his siblings hot and intimate. And also here I can personally say "not so bad at all".... Not as nice as mandarin cardamom or Rharbarber sage, but something different... The association with hairspray is quite there, but...hey.... i am a child of the 80s! You were as upset without hairspray as today's generation without their smartphone;o)! Yes, and I knew them all! Every house a teenager lived in smelled of hairspray in the bathroom. Or hair gel. Or both. Sometimes also after wax-naja, maybe a little bit later... I liked that scent. A little strict, bitter and yes-not natural. It is exactly this memory that comes up in me again, just like it did with last year's coffee bean vetiver. Actually a completely different fragrance, but also a bit bitter in the finish. Might be a little special, but still. Strangely enough, Saffron Iris was quickly gone, but after some time it was back again. Maybe they used the scent pearls of a well known fabric softener for this scent?! A question that the conspiracy theorists among us could pursue! Or the preastronautics.... ahem.

Auf echtem Safran gebettet - leider in der Realität kaum zu riechen... - der Name führt in die Irre, das Foto womöglich auch...
