First you can notice an intense and refreshing herbaceous, pleasantly greenish aromatic note, which brings a nice cooling effect on the skin and is to be owed to the verbena.
At the same time the verbena is accompanied by a light citric, discreetly acidic note, which with the verbena evokes a fine aquatic, very discreet soapy, rather clean air-lifting aura and comes from the lemon.
Unfortunately I could not perceive Iris, but I have to say that the top note is pleasantly "softened" without appearing powdery or even creamy and I can well imagine that the iris is responsible for this "softening".
Already in the top note a somewhat conspicuous aromatic, deep, spicy, discreetly earthy note is perceptible, which builds up a little more in the heart note and I am probably one of the few, who quite like this scent note - it may only not be used together with clary sage - at least on my skin.
This constellation is noticeable on my skin for 20 minutes before the heart note unfolds.
The conspicuous note has now built up completely and is nothing else than coriander, the discreet earthy note from the top note has passed completely and now smells intensely aromatic spicy.
At the same time the coriander is accompanied by an intense and quite strong floral note, which brings a fine touch of fresh engine oil with itself, the closer one smells at the skin and from the violet comes.
These two notes are accompanied by a fresh Mediterranean, very light herbaceous nuance, which gives the fragrance something light and haromonic and is owed to lavender.
In the very background there is another spice that seems ethereal to me, which gives the top note a fine polish and I like thyme or rosemary here and my sense of smell tends to rosemary.
The heart note is noticeable for 4 hours on my skin before the base unfolds.
The base becomes pleasantly creamy, also slightly spicy, which gives the fragrance a pleasant softness and comes from sandalwood.
The sandalwood is accompanied by a warming, balsamic nuance, which is discreetly waxy on the skin and provides a wonderful finish and comes from the ambergris.
And there is another note for my nose, which wraps the other two notes pleasantly and brings with it a clear mossy touch and I suspect EIchenmoos here.
In total the scent holds 7.5 hours on my skin.
The Sillage is conceived from the beginning in such a way that one is perceived clearly at a whole arm length and this is maintained also 3.5 hours in such a way, before it reduces itself in calm steps, until the smell finally completely fades away
I would like to express my sincere thanks to our "Zirkeltanz" perfume for its bottling.
