Love at first spray
When I stepped out of the front today with Coup de Foudre on my skin and the fresh, very cool air hit me, it suddenly woke up and came to life. After spraying the scent on in my warm house, it seemed it had tried to hide. Or maybe it was almost drowned in the everyday noise of the morning.

Coup de Foudre is a floral Chypré, which lets its ingredients flow so skilfully into each other that there is no bright flower that really stands out. (to name it) At the same time, citric chords give a freshness and transparency to the fragrance rather than having to shine for themselves.

But the special thing is probably the sandalwood used, which was extracted from over 100 years old trees in Indonesia. Behind this gem is Dmitry's partnership with Russian Adam on FeelOud. There they call this sandalwood "100k". It´s a whole different ball park, with it´s unbelievably fine and accentuated structure. It has an almost butter-soft characteristic and even appears as complex as an own fragrance - in the fragrance. Similar to some Oudh varieties, this sandalwood oil is so multi-layered and complex that it is not quite clear whether Dmitry could only strengthen and elaborate the notes in the wood through flower infusion or whether they were already present in all their beauty.

As a result, I actually fall in love at first sight, as the name promises, and find a slightly sandalwood-smoky, floating floral, but also unsweet, fragrance on my skin, which radiates particularly well in cool and fresh air.

love goes through the nose
he was immersed in his book, waiting for the plane to fly suddenly this fragrance grazed him: precious flowers in golden oil, light fruity and earthy dark at the same time. transparent and lightful, creamy and dense. a fragrance full of contrasts. a fragrance that was as quiet as it was profound.
he followed her. she was not quite young anymore, her gait was upright and light, she walked without haste. the brown hair looped into a soft knot, caught fine golden light reflexes.
he said she must have golden eyes. when she turned around, his breath stopped.
but she hadn't noticed him...

who appreciates the scents of areej le dore should test those of his business partner dmitri bortnikoff:
you feel the inner kinship and the same quality consciousness.
what is luxuriant and dense there is complex and translucent here.
extremely harmonious, quiet but very intense,
maybe like the difference between brahms and chopin:
"coup de foudre" lets you sink into beauty like a nocturn from chopin.
confusing natural and at the same time the most artistic perfect.
stunningly elegant, but with profound freshness.
flowery without being sweet,
woody but floating,

how the scent of love at first sight
