Hello! New night, new commies. You know about me by now. Since I just don't run out of rehearsals because of you (thanks a lot! :DD), I have to keep writing *sigh*
He he he :D
Today, I come to Iris Fauve, who, with the word iris alone, makes me think of a very gentle scent, doesn't he? At least I found... let's say 80-90% of all tested iris fragrances were gentle, and of course beautiful. There were exceptions where it didn't smell so great, but there are such exceptions everywhere, even with beautiful things like Star Wars! :DD If you knew that I don't really like most of the Star Wars movies that much! (yes, I like the Star Wars universe a lot, but most of the movies are even quite boring to watch except for some nice scenes! :D).
But I don't want to bore you with it now. So..., this fragrance here fortunately belongs to the really great iris fragrances! Yes, it exudes a great aura of gentleness, powdery sweetness and general well-being, but it's best to read for yourself how the fragrance is:
The fragrance begins with a beautiful and sweetly scented iris fragrance. One smells a little cinnamon as well as lemon, whereby the lemon is smellable more at the sprayed place instead of in the smell cloud, and also rather for a short time.
After the Iris, the second stronger fragrance is the Patchouli, which disturbs me a little bit at the beginning, because I find as always, that beautiful soft and powdery fragrances like the Iris don't go so well with tart earthy fragrances like the Patchouli or harmonize well with each other. Well, at least the patchouli doesn't get soo strong, so the fragrance is very nice by and large. Because the resinous myrrh, which soon sets in, makes the fragrance even softer and thus simply more pleasant. In addition, at some point the vetiver also works, which also has an earthy scent, but this is more green-earthy and therefore more beautiful than the patchouli smells here. In addition, the Vetiver occasionally overlays the Patchouli.
Much later the fragrance is still nice and powdery and gentle, even if you should not perceive the iris as strongly as at the beginning. In addition, the fragrance is still resinous and therefore smells pleasant. I think it's especially good that the patchouli I criticized weakens considerably in the base. However, one still smells earthy notes from the mix of patchouli and vetiver (whereby the vetiver is stronger now), but these fit in the low intensity now much better with the remaining scents, so that I don't find them disturbing anymore. In addition there is now also some musk, whereby musk with iris together works particularly cleanly and this smell is thus more beautiful here than otherwise, since it radiates such a great, clean aura. A very beautiful fragrance.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is good, not a blast, but nevertheless you are wrapped in a nice scent cloud and therefore not only smellable at a short distance. The fragrance also lasts for eight to ten hours, so the shelf life is also good.
The bottle is thin and has a rectangular basic shape, however, it has strongly rounded and also inflated side edges. Lines have been worked into the glass that run from the centre to the side walls and thus act like sunrays, which is even intensified by the yellowish scent liquid and is therefore great to look at. The lid is glossy black, looks like a doorknob and carries the logo of the brand on the upper side. A beautiful bottle!
Soo... to get to my title, the scent is like a big, fat hangover. Something cute in itself, that got fat, but that also makes it especially fluffy and velvety. The little animal (like my big fat cat) has a lot of body area with long, soft hair, so it takes literally minutes to stroke your hand from one side to the other!
Well, minutes may be exaggerated, but still such a thicker cat has a lot of velvety surface! And this is especially noticeable when sleeping, when he doesn't want to disappear into the freezing cold at night and jumps into bed with you. Then you have the feeling that you hardly need the heating anymore, because your body heat is sufficient to sleep comfortably warm!
And this fragrance has a similar effect here. It is soft, gentle and warm. Well, so warm that it could only be used in autumn and winter, not so, but the fragrance has a certain warmth. From the seasons, however, I would still call him an all-rounder, he always goes, but probably fits best in spring and autumn. You could use it during the day as well as in the evening and I think you should definitely test it if you get the chance :)
So, that's it and we'll see each other again very soon, until then :D
