Today I would like to introduce Mediterranean Honeysuckle by Aerin. A fragrance which, due to its English name, certainly makes you think of sweet honey. But this is not necessarily wrong, because Honeysuckle is not called "Honeysuckle" for nothing, because the sweet scent of this plant actually reminds of honey. From the appearance these plants (as an umbrella term for all honeysuckle species) are called here in Germany but also as hedge cherries, of which one should rather not nibble, since some are weakly poisonous and also should have no aroma at all (from the specially cultivated hedge cherries, the May berries, apart from that, ... great, now they are suddenly also called berries ... argh that's complicated! :D).
Hmm... somehow botany is quite interesting, I should perhaps deal more with it. I don't have to become the biggest botanist on the planet like Matt Damon in the movie "The Martian" (who is also the only person on Mars and thus actually the biggest botanist there :D), but a little more knowledge about plants wouldn't hurt. Yes, I think I'll start by learning how to distinguish flowers from trees or something like that :DD
Anyway, here comes the description of the fragrance!
The fragrance begins quite fresh with sparkling grapefruits that smell authentic and great. In addition to bergamot I also smell mandarins as a further citric note, from which one can smell the slightly bitter inner shell more. Flowery notes appear, but are still weak, so you can't determine them yet, well, not me anyway.
After the flowery notes get a little more intense, I think I can smell the gardenias out of them best first, because the other flowery notes should actually smell sweeter and the scent is not really sweet yet, but still citric and green with a very light clean note that comes across a little soapy.
But a little later the scent slowly becomes sweeter, I smell the lily of the valley, which together with the jasmine gives the scent a nice, tender sweetness. You can still smell the citrus notes, which is great and keeps the fragrance fresh and loose.
Only in the later basis the citrus smells disappear gradually, so that the smell remains then for the most part flowery with a not very high sweetness. Then I also find the flowery notes a little bit stuffy, but not for running away stuffy :D
Hmm... I haven't heard a Honigartige sweetness now by the way, since the sweetness came as I said from the Jasmin and from the lily of the valley. I think the honeysuckle here with this scent has just here rather tangy/herbaceous and green scented.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is slightly above average, so that the fragrance will smell good on you for a short while if you are not too far away from others.
The shelf life is very good, you can smell the scent for eight to ten hours.
The bottle is rectangular with bevelled corners so that it is actually octagonal. On the front you can see a white label with a golden frame, and also the name of the fragrance is written in golden letters there. The lower part of the lid is gold-plated. The upper part of the lid looks like polished stone in azure blue colour, making the lid a real eye-catcher. All in all a very nice bottle.
Ah, this scent has become really beautiful! He radiates a nice aura, which simply provides for satisfaction. It is reminiscent of beautiful meadows and flower fields, where you can walk past or walk in spring and summer, relax and enjoy the colourful nature, which may even make you feel a little happier. Nearby are lemon trees, whose citric fruits glow yellow like the sun from far away. If you are lucky enough to see beautiful butterflies buzzing around, which are more welcome insects besides all the mosquitoes (which also appear in spring), then the day is actually perfect.
Yes, this fragrance reminds me of such things and also creates a cheerful atmosphere. Therefore, Mediterranean Honeysuckle is in my opinion a great and beautiful women's fragrance, which is especially suitable for the day or leisure time and which I would recommend to every woman here to try it or make a note of it for the next spring and summer! It could be worth it :)
