Fragrances as a guideline ? Pfff, who needs it...
Sometimes in life, expectations and actual reality are very different diverge.

I don't want to say anything, but let your gaze linger for a moment on the fragrances...take the words: Lapsang-Souchong tea, Russian leather, oud, black amber, patchouli, breuzinho, bakhoor, labdanum, TEMPLE CHRISTMAS very deeply into your consciousness !

What do you think the scent will give you ?

Right, the smoke will drive the PIPI into your eyes,
"Vi Et Armis", on the other hand, is a joke, for a cosy "cuddle evening" with your girlfriend.
You put on "Cardinal" to "make love"
If the scent had been called "Dip chocolate cookies in warm tea with honey and orange and lemon in the sauna area", then....... "sigh* well..... then I would have known what I was getting.

But the saying: "What you see is what you get" has never been so far removed from any perfume as it is from this one!

So what do you get ?
A gourmand bomb of the very first order with "orange blossoms", somewhere a slight smoky note has "hidden" itself (but not a normal smoky note, it is somehow like the smell in a sauna land in the relaxation room).......where it comes from is a mystery to me *wink*

The durability is extremely good ( 10 hours + )
The Sillage, on the other hand, is "pleasantly" at one meter without filling rooms.
