The cheese slice
Since I have had this fragrance since the beginning of May, wear it almost daily and the 75 ml bottle is already half empty, it should be worth a comment. Especially since there is still emptiness here except for a few statements.
Here once a blind purchase succeeded and I was from the first moment in love with the fragrance.
Decisive for me for the purchase was the indication of the fragrance twin "Gris Dior", which seems to me to be unreachable. And a resemblance to this does not seem to be denied. Of course, he's not a twin. "Gris Dior smells softer, more elegant, higher quality. Also "Bottega Veneta" goes in the same direction, but is edgier with more leather. Here I see rather with "Bottega Veneta Eau de Velours" the largest similarity.
"Evoke for Her" begins with a tangy bergamot. But the top note flies away very quickly and gives way to a soft and powdery mix of rose and spices. Later I add clean and rosy patchouli and I also mean to smell some peach or plum. For me the scent becomes very soft but perceptible. I don't notice vanilla at all. Evoke's not very cute either. Maybe a hint of plum/peach.
The fragrance stays for a long time. The Sillage, however, I do not feel as above average, as indicated here above. I wear 5-6 sprayers at home and weekdays in the office and nobody has complained yet. And I prefer softer scents. "Evoke for Her" can be worn at any time and on any occasion.
The only drop of bitterness: The bottle
The processing is good to very good; the glass is heavy and without burrs. The cap fits well and the spray head works excellently and atomizes fine.
But otherwise: Even when I saw the photo of the bottle here, I had the association with a thick slice of Edam. And that's how it stayed. On the long side, the flacon is still wavy, as if the Edam disc had been in the air for too long. The outer packaging is made of beautiful, firm gold changing material, but felt 266 times printed with "Evoke" in gold embossing. Additionally also prints in black. The outer packaging also has a hole in the middle. I call it a design accident. The bottle remains hidden in the cabinet in any case.
But the scent is really beautiful. Probably I'll have to buy a bunker bottle soon.
