An evening on Tortuga
Today I got a sample (thanks ElysaShades) of the fragrance and sprayed a stroke on my arm. It starts extremely smoky, with a certain sweetness (rum?) in the background, somehow smells like a dive with cigars, rum and light ladies. A very nice start, I think. But is that really a men's fragrance? Really sexy and wicked with the sweet rum note fits in my opinion better to a lady. Whereby Lady is probably the wrong expression, the whole thing is too sinful.

In any case, a great fragrance for the evening to go out, definitely nothing for work. On my skin it holds itself also quite well, the Sillage is not too obtrusive. I'm gonna try it out a couple more times, not sure if it really suits me.

But I'm in the mood for a bar now, thank you Atkinsons!

Treasure chest found
Considering the main notes in Pirates' Grand Reserve, rum and chocolate, happen to be two of my favorites this fragrance was always going to be a pretty safe bet for me. And indeed I happen to love it; it's sweet, boozy, gourmandy and grown up, a permanent presence in my winter rotation.

That's not to say the fragrance is without its problems: it would have been nice for the rum note to last longer than 15 minutes, both longevity and projection could be better and the price... well, unless you end up loving the juice madly it's going to feel overpriced since there are similar fragrances in the market available for less money. Still, whenever I spray some Grand Reserve it brings a smile to my face and makes me feel for a moment like an intrepid Caribbean pirate. Hard not to love that.

At the Klabautermann
1. A sea voyage that's funny,
A cruise that's beautiful,
Because there you can foreign countries
And there's more to see.
Hollahi, hollaho, hollahia hia hia, hollaho.

2. Our captain, the thickness,
drinks a cup of rum first,
with a splash of cocoa,
and does not fall over.
Hollahi, hollaho, hollahia hia hia, hollaho.

3. In one hand the bottle,
In the other hand a pill,
And a big mouth, too,
the per mille.
are rising steadily Hollahi, hollaho, hollahia hia hia, hollaho.

4. And the first engineer,
Is Chinese, not Arab,
and the first officer,
The one who wears suede underwear.
Hollahi, hollaho, hollahia hia hia, hollaho.

5. And they washed themselves
At night and there's a cricket pulling in here;
Come this boatman's mate of the guard:
"Why does this smell like vanilla!"
Hollahi, hollaho, hollahia hia hia, hollaho.

6. In the bottom of the bunker,
Hidden between Cashmeran,
If the laziest stoker ever sleeps,
Until the upper mast wakes him up.
Hollahi, hollaho, hollahia hia hia, hollaho.

7. Come on up here, my boy of hearts,
Come up here, you old pig,
You can't even trim jasmine
And you want to be a stoker?
Hollahi, hollaho, hollahia hia hia, hollaho.

8. And he's gonna kick his ass,
That he falls into the vanilla
And the healing 12 perfumes
For a gang of robbers Hollahi, hollaho, hollahia hia hia, hollaho.

9. And at the jazz club at a heat
From almost over fifty degrees
Must the stoker sweat solid
And in the Patchouli sits the Maat.
Hollahi, hollaho, hollahia hia hia, hollaho.

10. Heavy loaded with the Rumfass
If the sailor swings over the deck,
But the rum doesn't take any damage,
He's already running away on his own.
Hollahi, hollaho, hollahia hia hia, hollaho.

11. And the cook in the galley
He's a fat, lazy bastard,
With de Beene in geranium,
With arms in cocoa,
Hollahi, hollaho, hollahia hia hia, hollaho.

12. And the little white seagulls,
all have Tourette's syndrome
And they're shitting, shitting, shitting,
On the fresh cardamom.
Hollahi, hollaho, hollahia hia hia, hollaho.

13. Arrived home,
Starts a new life,
A woman is taken,
Santa Claus brings children.
Hollahi, hollaho, hollahia hia hia, hollaho.

14. This fragrance smells like rum vanilla,
with strong suede,
Cocoa and a lot of promille,
so says the narrator.
Hollahi, hollaho, hollahia hia hia, hollaho.

15. Now I'm a pirate,
Summer evening or autumn,
my ship at full speed,
you know I was kidding.
Hollahi, hollaho, hollahia hia hia, hollaho.

Atkinsons deserved a praise on this creation. It is not too sweet, but addictive. Like Thierry Mugler A series, once you spray, you love it.+1
