Gourmand stands in the garden
This is how I experienced Stardust:

Tart fruity, slightly green, barely floral, warmth rises from the base.
Sun on freshly broken earth, warmth, rose from far away - fruity + slightly soapy.

fruity red wine

dusty dry cocoa powder

Beeswax candle

Dark chocolate with orange

Is already a nice fragrance. Only a stardust association does not arise.

A nice recipe against weather blues
The last days or rather weeks have been quite a challenge from a weather point of view. One really had to ask oneself if one should leave the house in a wetsuit and with lead weights on the feet or should rather push the cupboard in front of the door to let the misery pass by completely isolated. Additionally, during the stay in the fresh air there were repeatedely new hairstyle suggestions for free, storm hairstyle could be really taken literally. It felt like an endless lead-grey twilight that covered the minds like mildew. And with the amount of rain one was already tempted to think if one should be drowned...
Now just today you can see this strange bright thing in the sky, what was it called again... Lamp??
And suddenly the idle mood has risen by a few degrees, parallel to the temperatures. I can't find a suitable term for this time of the year, or rather for this state of affairs. Actually, it's nice to be cold at this time of year. For my sake it may snow. But obviously you can't have any weather up there anymore or the old folks can't handle modern technology. Who knows...

Now, in such a miserable time, one either yearns for cheerful, bright spring scents that will conjure up a little sunshine in our minds and flatter us with lovely flower scents and/or delicate fresh green, or one surrenders and looks out for comfortably warming cuddly scents that enchant us with warm spices, gourmand tones and sweet tones.
I have now decided on the second option. And what could happen to me there more beautiful than Stardust from Mrs. Neuffer?
A fragrance made for slippery weather, wind force 11, mountains of clouds and gloom.
I was given the opportunity to get to know each other better by lending me a bottle.
And this getting to know each other has been most gratifying.

In the fragrances of Mrs. Neuffer one can very well recognize a very own handwriting. I mean to identify this mainly in the prelude. And in the meantime I have already got to know a lot of scents from the Neuffer company It is that certain note of beeswax, spice, citrus notes and resinous sweetness. I do not like this note in all Neuffer fragrances. Sometimes they seem too heavy and oily to me and I am often reminded of those oriental shops, with incense sticks, scented oils and many spices hanging heavy in the air. Or of Christmassy aromas, which fit very well into the cold season, but which are not really suitable for me as perfume.
But Stardust has this note only quite short and not as expansive as many other fragrances from her hand.

The citrus notes are clearly perceptible, seeming somewhat darker than usual here. They are also not too sweet, but in any case they have the ability to cheer up the mood. The spicy beeswax note is also immediately present, but does not overlay everything.
That's really nice. The fragrance then very quickly develops a wonderful deliciously chocolaty direction, which is supported by sparingly used floral accompaniments.
I very clearly smell a triad of cocoa, patchouli and vanilla. But these aromas are not overpoweringly sweet either. The vanilla pushes itself into the foreground and plays around with the chocolate note as if it wanted to say "Make room for me!"
This Stardust vanilla is of a rather darker nature, it radiates a beautiful warmth, just as the entire fragrance is surrounded by a pleasant and soothing warmth.
The spicy and resinous notes additionally support the whole thing, but also fit harmoniously into the overall picture.

Stardust, despite its gourmand notes, is not a fragrance that makes me feel like I'm covered in tons of frosting and it doesn't just smell sweet and sugary. Here and there Mrs. Neuffer has worked in a few nice edges to make the fragrance not too monotonous and to refine the gourmand sweetness with a few tart undertones.
All this has a wonderful durability, I can perceive the scent for a good 9 hours, and despite a certain opulence, which cannot be denied, the scent does not die.

Whether or not you would like to experience natural scents, everyone can decide for themselves. But I think that one should try these scents. They are very different from the classic perfumery craft It goes without saying that not everyone likes this style
I would like to place Stardust more in the cold season, because I cannot imagine this warm spicy character in summer very well. But in dirty weather and cold this fine fragrance comes just right.
It would be nice to have a fireplace, which I unfortunately do not have, a jumbo cup of hot cocoa, clothes to live in, nice music and a good book. And of course Stardust, so that you can forget the world for a while.
Besides, the scent is completely suitable for men. I find the classification as a women's fragrance a bit misleading, because the fragrance has a completely unisex effect on me.

The scent cannot carry me to the stars now, but the feel-good atmosphere it spreads makes me purr comfortably in any case. And dull days are a whole corner brighter As I write these lines, the sky is actually turning grey again and the next low pressure system is approaching. So quickly reach for Stardust :-)

I thank our wonderful 0815abc from the bottom of my heart for providing the lovely!

Medical advice
The doctor warned me to watch my weight. Never has such care been taken. Recently, for example, I ate a family pack of fried fish for dinner. Four pieces of 100 grams each of 175 calories, makes 700 calories. Plus Danish tartar sauce. It will have been four tablespoons, so another 150 calories will have been added easily. For dessert, we had a portion of profiteroles. About a quarter of the package content of 450 grams to 277 calories per 100 grams I have eaten, makes dawdling once again a good 300 calories.

In total, about 1,200 calories. Tight performance for one evening, I think. The doctor will be very pleased with my efforts. After all, it's not my fault that none of this works. Every year around Christmas time, I bravely try to gain a few kilos via goose, dumplings, sweets etc., but I can hardly even manage 65. Not much in just one-sachust-length - and within a few days everything is gone anyway, down to 60th I still use the first belt I bought myself at the tender age of perhaps 15 years, in the mid-eighties
If we were at a perfume convention right now, I might have been killed long ago. Now I'm also stopping - and simply recommending 'Stardust': the fragrance for sophisticated enjoyment without calories.

The emphasis is on "sophisticated", because there are many sweet bombs, but not seldom with a brutal caries danger on the meta-level. In this case, the trick is the great balance that is maintained from beginning to end, to anticipate this immediately. As a real pleasure scent, 'Stardust' arouses little motivation to trace the individual aromas in a particularly filigree way, but a few things are worth mentioning:

Orange and dark chocolate opened. Deliciously fruity and tart. And so lifelike, it's astounding. The equalizer is a green-sour impact. And to be on the safe side, the chocolate is quickly lined and roughened, probably by (cocoa) patchouli. Great gourmand chord that nevertheless skilfully avoids the all too sweet.

The vanilla is subtle and tart, dark and voluminous. I have already experienced elsewhere that she can almost touch the smoky parts, it seems like that here too. Gradually it dissolves the chocolate, the orange stays a little longer and only dims away very gradually. A waxy airy breeze now helps to ensure that the thing is neither too sweet nor too edible.

It is not until later in the morning that the pyramid-like, expected jubilation takes place, a delicate, caramel-sugary note is carefully added, finely sanded down by a floral-fruity rest and our wax. The various other additions I can imagine more or less well,

In any case, as is usually the case with Neuffer, the fact that new participants enter the pitch does not necessarily mean that those already present leave it. Throughout the afternoon and into the evening, vanilla, cocoa, wax and fruit residues float around each other in ever-changing weightings. This leads to different nuances from one day to the next. A somewhat weaker dosage makes the funfair part of my work subtle, for example.

Conclusion: a successful round trip. The fact that such things will never be completely "mine" doesn't matter
Today I thank my son three times: First of all, I thank my son for letting me try the specimen he received from the 'Stardust' creator herself - this is my second thank you - in order to contribute a real gem to his clearly arranged, but quite exclusive vanilla fragrance (mostly specimens) collection. He likes the fragrance very much, although he prefers to take a tine to Guerlain's 'Spiritueuse Double Vanille'. I can't blame him, a Neuffer fragrance is unquestionably a challenge for a twelve-year-old.

And thirdly, I would like to thank all the dear people here and wish everyone a wonderful Christmas season.

Cosy oasis of well-being
"When it gets dark and chilly outside, press the "Stardust" spray button and you can dive comfortably into your private oasis of well-being until late into the night. ..."

...ahhhh...sigh...

This fragrance is very gourmand, soft, its cocoa note reminds of a cup of creamy chocolate. Of course everyone feels different (truism), but I think I can read from the many positive reactions here to perfumo that "Stardust" is a real nose-turner for the majority.
You just have to love this beeswax-based cocoa-vanilla-sugar wadding combo.
I would rather all people who otherwise use "Angel" would switch to "Stardust"...

But the Neuffer fragrances have their price. On her website the autodidact indicates which raw materials she uses; obviously there are many building blocks that have not been synthetically produced and which are therefore not available in such large quantities as e.g. ethyl maltol in "Angel".

Alternatively, you could order natural ingredients yourself and start making your own blends inspired by Mrs. Neuffer. I would also be interested in attending a workshop with Annette Neuffer. Any of you have any experience?
Who doesn't dream of creating their own "comfort scent"? I'd love to do that.

But back to "Stardust": Until you get such a scent, you have to practice for quite a long time... - and bring talent to it.
(P.S. Unfortunately, he is not my personal "star", since I am not the type for gourmand perfumes and I much rather drink a cup of Earl Grey than cocoa with honey. Lovely, gentle and somehow calming, he comes across as'stardust'. Probably Neuffer's bestseller. )

Long awaited...
...my rehearsal package arrived this morning, including Stardust, the fragrance I was most excited about. I love the Orientals, preferably sweet and spicy, and my favourites so far are Shalimar EdT, Bahia von Lehmann and Arabesque, which I do not (yet) own. After his rehearsal I became aware of the scents of Annette Neuffer and with such prices you don't want to make any mistakes. In my opinion, Stardust doesn't develop much of a fragrance and I can't sniff out all the many precious ingredients. But in the end I don't care, I wear fragrances to smell nice, the expertise that goes so far that you can see the details in such a rich mix of ingredients, I have to leave to the professionals. I keep holding my wrist to my nose, as I did with Arabesque, but unfortunately the WOW effect doesn't happen here. I'm not disappointed, Stardust smells pretty good, but there's this one note I don't like very much, hard to describe. I smell the cocoa, the vanilla, the very delicate rose and the cotton candy chord, so far, so good, but I notice the beeswax most clearly and I don't like it very much because it smells of sweet wax like these candles from the health food store around the corner. Perhaps a younger woman would find this fragrance very pleasant, women of a younger generation who have only known synthetics so far. But to me this fragrance has something to do with Indian shops, Woodstock, it is natural and of course good, but I am by no means flashed and find that it cannot keep up with the balance and sophistication of an Arabesque. I will use up my little probie with pleasure, on cuddly Sundays at home, or pass it on also, that would be actually indifferent to me. But I have several other samples, maybe my WOW-smell is under it. I can't say anything about the Sillage, as I'm alone at home today, but the shelf life is very good

Sweet, sparkling particles popping on my skin. ...
Beeswax and patchouli are noticeable in the first blast along with the citrus. Stardust is quite sweet but nowhere near as sweet as candy floss. The name suits the perfume well as it has a dry and effervescent character like tiny popping particles.
It quickly begins to settle into a rich cocoa powder accompanied by all the subtle nuances of the other notes; pollen filled osmanthus, a little earthy patchouli, some ever so slightly pongy beeswax (lovely!) and a dry juiciness that makes your mouth water but it’s not a wet kind of juiciness, if you can imagine that. At this point the texture has a character somewhere between a fuzzy apricot and delicate spun sugar, there is some playfulness between juicy and dry going on in this composition.
It’s all very edible, scrumptious and lighthearted but also has an exciting sensual quality. Delicious and delightful.

Soul Fire
Can you give a fragrance a soul? Yes, you can! At least Annette Neuffer did it. Because she gave her a piece of her own, it seems. Stardust is not just a perfume for me. It's liquefied Soulfire, feminine, glittering Soulfire. A fragrance that miraculously reflects and celebrates the feminine soul.
An elixir that enchants and touches. An endless loop of peace and harmony.

Stardust is like a warm and soothing heartbeat. He is not lustful and wicked. No! He is warmhearted and peaceful in a very mysterious way. Protective for the woman who wears it and attractive for the man who perceives it. The fragrance of Stardust does not stifle the aura of a woman, but he reinforces it most pleasantly. He radiates strength, tenderness and care.

Stardust draws his magic from many delicious and seductive ingredients. The top note immediately spreads heat. Bitter orange bitter-sweet and tart with a sparkling mandarin note and a droplet of bergamot open the spell. The heart note is not long in coming and brings the small heart to beat. It starts to smell of roasted almonds and sponge, which could be vanilla. Fine vibrations of osmanthus and extremely delicate rose petals do the rest. In the base note, all the power of Stardust comes to bear. Creamy Tonka bean and soft Siam Benzoin combine with melted beeswax absolute and vanilla. Herber cocoa and a soft earthy patchouli permeate the fragrance like a nervous system of harmony and tenderness.

Conclusion
When Annette Neuffer Stardust was created she must have been in harmony with herself and in complete harmony with her soul, it seems. This fragrance makes me want to protect and warm the woman who carries it. He is the soul-fire of femininity which burns in every woman and shines eternally.
Thank you Annette Neuffer for this wonderful gift to the soul of the woman.

Stardust ..... You're wearing your name
