Elixir with double bottom
Aramis - JHL
As signature scent I call Monsieur de Rauch. Reason enough to look for similar scents. Among them I count especially Aramis - JHL.
Bergamot and green orange are a pleasant start for me. Animal creaminess appears. Against a light sweetness with vanilla and patchouli, heavyweights are driven up and the rest of the action is characterized by spices.
In the main course, allspice with cinnamon and above all carnation play the main role and give us a glimpse into a fir forest with loose population. Now the wooden character is clear and a tiny, almost watery fish swims in the nearby brook (and is already over - Animalik).
A dark, opulent elixir develops. Warm with rose, patchouli and cinnamon. Powerful with the resin of the cistus rose, with various woods and above all the clove. Labdanum calms, gives further depth and flatters the feelings, the soul. (Reason for purchase?)
In the clearing, one of the giant trees with its roots is torn from the forest floor and with a delicately smoky, dry final chord, the scent sinks into the twilight and the night.
JHL is not composed to be together in our home. The elixir is absorbed here roughly. I think that's the carnation. In the buttonhole she would be well accepted as a flower!
