A great vanilla perfume - not a vanilla scent
This is not just a vanilla scent. No, this is a real perfume. So something wearable, something dressy, not a cake scent for on the go. Not a sugary body spray. Nothing monothematic.
Let me describe Aura Sublime in more detail:
The opening impresses with its balanced composition of 50% citrusy chords (freshly cut lemon and a little bit tart bergamot) and 50% warm-soft vanilla (very classic vanilla, rather sweet, but not sugary).
I had been looking for exactly deiser combination and yet had been afraid that it turns out to be a cake scent and I am the cake on two legs when I wear it. With a vanilla-lemon combo, that can act yes quickly so...
But no, this perfume evolves into a wearable perfume - cuddly and elegant.
The whole thing is possible thanks to the iris butter, which brings quite soon a bumig-pudrige note in the vanilla-lemon mixture. And then, after a while, the "balsamic note" already described in other reviews comes in. Reading the comments while waiting for my blind purchase, I couldn't quite imagine what that was supposed to be - not some tiger balm like you like to use for coughs and sniffles, surely? Or even something smoky-scratchy?
Let me reassure you: neither of these applies. Rather, the note that comes to it after about 2 hours reminds me of warm cocoa and incense. The cocoa is unsweet, very important. No sugar-kaba-children's birthday, but noble, de-oiled cocoa and very subtle. The noble vanilla is clearly in the foreground. The cocoa may also be imagination on my part, it is not listed. Anyway, it's something very similar then, fragrance experts are welcome to write me what else it is. And the incense I think I smell is not yet lit, but still smells balsamic-oily and in no way smoky or scratchy. If you can't do anything with this description either, maybe I can help you with a comparison to a spa visit. Doesn't quite hit the mark, like the not yet ignited incense, but I think it makes it clear what I mean. A classy spa that smells like essential oils without being able to smell out any particular oil. But as I said - cocoa and balsam are really subtle and Aura Sublime remains a vanilla lemon perfume. In the drydown, this (imagined?) cocoa and the balsam are namely the secondary figures to the tonka bean, which the vanilla from the base still lives on.
The durability on my skin is top - even in the evening I smell this perfume still clearly on the wrist.
The sillage is good, especially the projection is (according to my coleginnen) pleasant. Perceptible, but does not go on the nerves.
The Flacon was changed. He is no longer as above in the picture, but even plainer (who thought that is still possible...). Very plain. Quite the opposite of the stunning, multi-faceted perfume. Overall, however, the new flacon also looks very high quality. He is heavy in the hand, the lid goes off quite heavily (so does not fly off constantly by itself) and the spray is the higher price category corresponding luxurious-foggy.
Conclusion: beautiful perfume. Through Aura Sublime I have personally recognized for me the difference between "fragrance" and "perfume" - and this perfume I love!
