They thought they were in paradise
"La Treizième Note", the thirteenth note. Does it have anything to do with music? No. The inspiration for this pretty fragrance comes from Tom Tykwer's famous film "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer". Not included in the novel by Süskind, but introduced into the film-spript, the "treizième note" is explained as follows:
"In ancient Egypt people thought that they could create a great and unique perfume simply by adding one note, the 13th note, the final essence, different from all the others, but also dominating the others...an amphora was found one day in the tomb of a pharaoh and once it was opened, it released a perfume. After thousands of years, the perfume had such a subtle beauty and such a power that for an instant, everyone living on earth thought they were in paradise. 12 essences could be identified… but the 13th essence … the vital one, could never be identified."

Could you possibly aim higher when calling a new perfume "La Treizième Note"?

Fortunately, I did not know this impressive background-story when I tested the scent. I'm not a friend of background-stories anyway. The perfume should be able to speak for itself. But when researching some information about this 13th-note-thing, I vaguely remembered the film "Le Parfum" ... and then I thought, sure, the idea to create such a paradisic fragrance is fabulous.

Now my personal disappointment: This fragrance is not what I'd expect given the name and the background. Would you believe that la treizième note is pineapple? A fine, beautiful pineapple, taking me on a perfumed voyage to some tropical isles in the sun. The pineapple is then topped with soft flowery notes (rose, mimosa, jasmine), and there might even be some heliotropin lurking among all this, but it's not listed anywhere. Well, "La treizième note" is a beautiful, subtle fruity-flowery perfume. Delicious French desserts spring to my mind, because I can also smell some peach, vanilla and honey, in fact, "La Treizième Note" is so delicious you almost feel an urge to take a sip of it onto your tongue...- but don't forget, you have to love pineapple.

A lovely perfume indeed, but not for an instant did I think I was in paradise.
Once again, there should be more to my paradise than pineapple, mimosa, peach and vanilla.
