The Buddel Rum in test
Me and my cowl friends from our rocker club Wolle's Eleven were once again on the hunt. After the next luscious leathery scent for us. Just had to be cheap, so the price. Everything for the bikes was on it. So we looked for the next snapper after the Cerutti and the Dark Rebel. The latter was known to be too soft alcoholic, either the girls washed it down or we used it for disinfection. Actually it was only our Holden who threw it down
Now you hear and read about the Bentley so often. It is not my motorcycle brand due to lack of motorcycles but the little fragrance sounded quite good. Should be a pithy leather scent. So the eight of us go into perfumery. Oh, I must explain. We used to be 11, but then three of us got out because of a motorcycle and dolly incident. Remember, it's better to carry boxes and tape won't hold the car to the motorcycle.
The cashier's hands in the air. A customer dropped an Aventus bottle in fright. Afterwards he told me that it wasn't out of fright before us but because of the batch and because of our appearance he saw the chance to eliminate the bottle from this batch.
"Put your hands back down, young lady! This is not a robbery! We just wanted to test some scents."
The situation relaxed noticeably although we were observed. Colleague Kalle inquired about a scent and was offered the corresponding shower gel. So I had to intervene: "Take it, Kalle! You are in dire need of it! My wet dog smells better than you!" Case solved.
So off to the shelf where the Bentley Intense is. "Hecki, what does Parfumo say?"
"It's a fragrance bomb, open up that bottle." So I opened up and sprayed. What can I say? Intense rum, you can tell the cinnamon is there, because honestly, it's not good for the rum. The Bentley Intense has a rather plain smell. But unfortunately so intensive that our Udo had to be held back. He is not allowed to drink any more and wanted to buy several bottles directly. We had to intervene.
Here on Parfumo there was something about pepper and we all agreed, it was noticeable. Rather like the laurel in the background, which added a certain bitterness. In the center first the rum and then soon the leather. It smelled as if the alcohol would open the dirty pores of the leather and this melange now breaks its olfactory path.
Now Kalle nodded approvingly after he had read through all the ingredients. "Yes, yes, the African rose geranium stands out clearly." "Boy, what about you? Too much inhaled of the stuff? You don't know what a geranium looks like!" "Sure I do. We have it in the garden. It's just a flower." No one else smelled something from Kalle's garden in that perfume. But everyone only knew the beer tent set and the table from downstairs from Kalle's garden
Well, let's get some fresh air and let the scent work. So off to the pub! Not around here. So we went to a café, waitress came, pot of course. Except for Rudi, who ordered a Vanilla Macchiato Espresso Doppio. I rather sat down for a while
"So, wool, now tell me, what do you think about this thing here?"
I'm taking a long look around. I couldn't think of anything at first. Then I took a sip of coffee. "What can I tell you? First he hits you out for alcohol-soaked leather and then he refines it, but I found it to be simple knitting and more a deception about the weaknesses."
"Where you say it, exactly. Not much happens there and the leather smells more like the cover of the garden furniture, not fine leather like for my motorcycle."
Now Udo answered: "You know, I have already consumed a lot of alcohol in my life Everyone nodded. "But this, the rum, it doesn't smell that good. Rather a mass rum, matching the mass scent
"I also mind the course, men. It gets paler and paler and towards the end somehow smoother, warmer and woodier. But only subtly warm and woody. Sandalwood and cedar, yes, but I don't recognize incense. That's too little for me
"Where you say it's true. At eye level with the Dark Rebel safe, 1881 Signature is a little better and leatherier than those two if you ask me. They only differ in that one mixes high-gloss leather and rum, the Bentley is dirtier."
"All right, men! Then we're through. Yes, Udo?"
"You go ahead, I might take one of those rum things, I'll take my perfume."
Bentley Intense has a strong focus on rum; both leather and rum do not smell high quality and their blend is nothing you don't know. I know the scent has many friends that I don't want to get too close to. For someone looking for leather scents, this is not a good choice. For me it hits a notch with the mentioned scents, all of them are different from each other, but in the end they are similar in spirit. The Cerutti perhaps the least. Bentley Intense is quite linear, swells up like Pandora's Box, gets gradually quieter and in the end even cosy, the scent has something of warm alcohol.
