Pineapple candy in the forest
Actually I didn't want to make any blind purchases, because my goal is to have as small a collection as possible with fragrances that I really love instead of buying everything that isn't at 3 on the tree. Which is why my collection is quite small, but also saves money.
But sometimes the bottle is so beautiful that it really attracts you... and this one is almost impossible to test somewhere in person before you buy it, and even online in Europe not often seen. Especially in the 50ml bottle which I prefer for various reasons.
Well, after a few years of ogling and forgetting again I found it in 50ml at an acceptable price, is also the cheapest Bond has in the assortment, at least as far as UVP concerns.
Arrived, I find bottle really super, packing etc beautifully in the Bond style.
Sprayed on... First the pineapple definitely comes through, a little sweet, a little sour (but not unpleasant). But the sweet and fruity pineapple withdraws after a few minutes and what remains I would call cedars, juniper berries, musk and moss. I liked the pineapple so much...
About an hour later I smell again, and lo and behold... The pineapple's back! But a little softer, clean as freshly washed, I think it smells like pouring a lemonade with pineapple over cedar wood. Not bad, light, very well wearable in summer, a bit different than the very woody/needy what I noticed before. It stays that way and becomes softer over time until it disappears.
H+S good, you can get out for a few hours already.
I don't want to say much about the similarity to Aventus, my experience with Aventus after several tests was not very good, I never really noticed pineapples. This is different here, nothing smoky either, definitely more relaxed, but not necessarily juvenile.
So all in all a successful blind purchase. But I wanted to stop...
