Danish pastry in imitation leather backpack
My first comment on a fragrance and then also the first ever comment on this fragrance. Crazy.
What's the point? Because it is one of the few fragrances for which I have not yet read anything and can describe my perception completely unbiased and without influences.
I'm honest, it was a frustrating purchase, I went into town and wanted to have a new fragrance, nothing expensive, something different, maybe something unusual, in the direction of chocolate, marzipan, pastry, a winter scent.
There it was, the fragrance that was to lift my spirits.
The flacon is visually very appealing and makes a good quality impression, only the felt sticker, which is constantly crooked on the flacon, devalues the look. Funny gimmick, the cap is held magnetically. Who doesn't know cardboard boxes with magnetic closure leave a high-quality impression and suggest a high-priced content, whether this played a role in the development? Definitely.
Let's get to the real issue, the scent. First of all, I'm not a professional in this field and I'm only describing my impressions and how I perceive the fragrance here.
What image do I have in my head when I smell this fragrance?
A crushed piece of Danish pastry with vanilla pudding, indefinable fruit and quite a bit of icing, transported in a leatherette backpack by a smoking teenager.
In the top note I take unripe apple - very sour, fresh broken wood fresh lavender, rather subtle, artificial creamy soapy vanilla was. The heart note, actually continues like this, only that an artificial chemical smell spreads, reminds of leather, but not real leatherette rucksack, which once hung next to a real leather rucksack in a department store. The lavender becomes a bit more tangible and the wood develops a smoky, slightly resinous smell What I noticed towards the evening is that the fragrance in the base gets a slightly musty, musty, stale character, which is already disturbing me personally. I suppose it's the leather paired with tobacco, so the colorful imitation leather backpack turns into a crumpled old leather tobacco pouch.
In the first minutes and hours I find the scent quite ok, I didn't have one of those yet and was completely open to it. Of the scents I tried, this was the most interesting one for me. Even if everything seems artificial, I will continue to wear the fragrance, but definitely not on special occasions. I rather arrange the fragrance in the direction of autumn/winter.
If I had to assign the fragrance to a target group, 20 to a maximum of mid-30s, for under 20 I would consider the tobacco and wood in the base to be too mature.
The durability is okay, in itself also always difficult to estimate, but if we talk about the perceptibility on the skin about 4 to 6 hours
Basically, you can buy this fragrance if you don't want to spend a lot of money and you feel like doing something new. If I were to buy this scent again, no. It is a change to my other fragrances, but for me not balanced, round enough.
