The fragrance for picnics in the orchard
I recently went to the small Art of Scent Swiss Perfumes shop in Berne.
There I got very friendly 1:1 advice from an employee, was allowed to test several perfumes and finally got two good sample sizes.
I tested the Parfums d'atelier, the Aaarewasser and the Gold Editions.
I took Everglow and Mönch as samples.

From the Parfums d'atelier, the other perfumes tested didn't agree with me, although I didn't think they were bad now - but the perfumes all seemed quite sweet and clean overall and weren't exactly rich in the resinous, mossy and gay-white-blueheric scents I currently love. Allegedly they were created by the perfumer as fragrances that she herself likes - and yes, I see a red line in the Parfums d'atelier collection.

There is also a fresher cologne scent (La Pirate, if I hadn't been mistaken) that my husband would surely have liked; an algae Aquate (Aare water) for everyone who should miss swimming in the Aare on the way; and Jungfrau, whom I found quite meaningless in contrast to the mountain standing for it.
The owner also offers perfume workshops (290CHF for individuals) where you can mix your own fragrance from different ingredients.

Back to Everglow...

Prelude:
Quite alcohol-heavy, fresh and sweet-harsh.

Skin:
I smell rose geranium and something floral, but I can't attribute it to Lily, Ylang Ylang or the acacia.
A sparkling citrus component mixes the whole thing a little and adds a tart green component.
If I read it that way, it sounds like bergamot, but I would have blindly guessed some bitter lemon or semi-fermented lime.
On the skin, that's it. The scent distorts quite fast - within 30min it is gone and only a hint of bergamot remains.

On the blouse...
another side comes into its own: lily, ylang ylang and musk gently come to the surface.
The whole thing looks clean, sweet and powdery; with a few drops of flower nectar here and there speckled in between. For the powdery component I would not have guessed iris root, but some component, in the description "powdery" is quite far ahead (at the moment I use Iris pallida in Weingeist from the butterfly brand as an object of comparison).
The fragrance always stays on the clean side. It is never overwhelming, but always has the sillage of an office scent and remains close to the body.
The whole thing is a cloud of the finest and lightest ylang-ylang powder. The bergamot pushes itself again with its green side underneath, before a hint of sweet, vanilla powder remains after about 2 hours.
I smelled a similar chord this week in Byblos Cielo, but there it is described as musk-sandalwood-vanilla.
Vanilla musk powder I would have said now too.

I like the development of this light fragrance on my blouse and would like to wear it from time to time in spring.
But he certainly won't become one of my favorites, because he is too flat and too "lovely" for that.
To remind you of FabianO's blog entry worth reading:
I just like guys like Arneis, Ribolla Gialla and Tocai/Friulano/Whateveryouwannacallit; and please stay dry :-D

Conclusion:
A beautiful, lively spring scent, which I can see well in the office or at a picnic under the cherry tree.

Now autumn and winter are approaching... Ambre Sultan, here I come!
