Pepper or pepper, that is the question here
Mummy's smart boy, who I am, I bought Journey blind like so many fragrances before him, because not everyone learns. I imagined the strong one and the first test smelled like the result when I seasoned dishes: hopelessly too much pepper. At least not too much salt. Then I asked myself the question: would I like to smell like I eat spice? Actually no, but...
Yes, but, as I must confess by now. Of all the ingredients I can hardly smell anything in detail. The title Journey hits the mark, as one cannot help but travel to the place of the plant Szechuan.

Since the plane was not so high above the ground, the landing was hard despite the parachute. Both got knocked out and fainted. When they woke up, the air was shimmering, a bit musty and sharp. "You Alberto, where are we?", Pierre asked. "By chance there's a sign, we've landed in Sichuan and in a pepper plantation!"
"That smells... weird! Quick, fill up a sack before we go and get help! I can do that especially well with..." "Introduce the tonka bean," Alberto continued the sentence with a smile. Both laughed out loud and history was written
Actually Journey smells great in its own way. Biting pepper in scorching heat, the spicy juniper, incense fresh from the altar boy and the spicy cardamom, which makes the beginning so infernally hot, that's how you could describe Journey.
This is not a fragrance for everyone, you have to want to stand out or the wearer must not care. Only: who wears it? I didn't know for the life of me, I thought and was suddenly torn from my thoughts. "Mulberry leaf?" - "No thanks, Bud, no gum for me."
Now it was clear to me whose signature fragrance this could be and that the wearer and the fragrance could be described as uncompromising, tough, taciturn. And that some wearers even go so far as to buy Journey blind. And then, after several tests, to be really enthusiastic
