Today I am writing about a Berdoues fragrance, which attracts me again and again with its beautifully designed flacons and encourages me to test it. Although the bottles are only rectangular and high, they still have beautiful motifs, which you like to pick up from time to time, especially the fragrance Assam of India, on whose bottle you can see many colorful and cute little elephants :)
Anyway, the scents themselves are of course not bad. Often simply composed with only a few scents, they usually smell pretty good, though not extraordinary. Many of them may not be must-haves, but they are nice scents that could be put on the shelves of one or the other (I myself want to get the Assam of India some day, too... and no, not only because of the elephants, but also because I like the tea scent! But it was clear, wasn't it? D)
Soo,... now that the heat wave has subsided a bit (and I hope it stays that way!), I can also test a scent with vanilla in it from time to time. Like Vânira Moorea, which doesn't seem to have been made only for autumn or winter and could possibly be worn on warmer days, as I see great orange notes in the fragrance list below that might look fresh. So let's see what this scent is like!
Aaah, at the beginning I smell a light vanilla that comes across warm and sweet and is great because of its powdery charisma. But then there are also oranges, which are not necessarily tingling, but nevertheless citric and fresh. By the combination of not too heavy vanilla and oranges the fragrance also seems to me as if I would eat vanilla ice cream with orange pieces, which is especially good on hot days, as we all have experienced it here lately!!!
Even later you can smell some orange notes, but they weaken more and more. After a while the vanilla is clearly in the foreground and this is also the only fragrance that still smells much later.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is a simple average and can be easily smelled at a short distance. Could've been a little stronger, though.
But the shelf life is good and lasts many hours, although not as long as some other vanilla fragrances. But eight to ten hours is still easy!
The bottle is rectangular and has slightly rounded edges. As always, it has a beautiful motif printed on the inside back of the bottle, which can be seen because the front is transparent and only the label of the fragrance is there. With this fragrance you can see vanilla blossoms on the motif. As always, this bottle is also very nice to look at.
Wooow, I can literally taste the ice cream in my mouth. Delicate vanilla ice cream that melts in your tongue, refreshes you deliciously and simply does you good on hot days. In addition, there are orange pieces or a light orange aroma that gives the somewhat monotonous vanilla a small, fruity variety and thus everything tastes much better, especially if there should actually be pieces of fruit in the ice cream, whose juice when chewed only further enhances the enjoyment of the ice cream!
Hmm... are you drooling already? :D
*Handkerchiefs to wipe your mouth rich* he he he he :D
And just as great as you could imagine the taste here, the fragrance also smells and is a great, fresh but also warm summer companion and by the way one of the few vanilla fragrances that you can wear in summer (well, but perhaps not necessarily during the heat waves...)!
But you shouldn't expect anything complex! Like most Berdoues fragrances (or at least those I know so far), the fragrance is quite simple because it has few fragrances. But sometimes this simplicity is just good, especially if you want to have a certain fragrance that is just well done without having many other fragrances on the side.
Anyone who likes vanilla and light citrus notes should try this beautiful fragrance, which can be used during the day. But he also goes out, because vanilla works longer, even if later the citric notes should have disappeared long ago
