Back row treasures? A wide, deep sea of flowers!
Evasion, a floral scent from 1970 and in a new edition from 1996, is another perfume from the house of Bourjois, which I would like to introduce as a little-noticed treasure (see also comment on Kobako). Both editions are part of the collection with 9 and 12 users, respectively, and are honored here with a total of 3 comments and 10 statements. Evasion 1996 is still on sale and I had this edition in test.

At the moment of spraying, you sit, stand or bathe in a sea of fragrant flowers. It has a penetrating floral and intensely sweet smell of honey and beguiling nectar. A feeling of dizziness or dizziness over the lush accumulation of such floral aromas. There are no citrus, fruity or woody notes and the initially noticeable floral freshness is more of a pure white, cool creaminess. Evasion is straightforward, powerful and comes across very naturally. Clear, bright and in the course of creamy to powdery, the perfume is always a sweetly-flowery and very strong, sensually beguiling floral scent.

How is this achieved? Only four ingredients are listed in the 1970 edition:

Honeysuckle, also Jelängerjelieber: intense, honey-sweet-flowery, strong, fragrant,
Hyacinths: intense, sweetish, spring-like, roomy
Jasmine: intensive honey-like, sweet-flowery, herbal-hay-like,
Lily of the valley: intensely sweet, attractive, characteristic, white-feeling,

There are only flowers with filigree blossoms and only those are scented here and attract with their sweet scents to seduce the insects and moths to settle down there. No green of the plant or bitter and spicy parts confuse. Towards the end a little hay warm from the sun, with a little amber or musk for fixation, may have been concealed, because Evasion lasts and lasts, on the skin about 7-8 hours, on clothes longer.

With its opulent floral and floral splendour, the fragrance is rightly declared a women's perfume. Nevertheless, I also see Evasion in a man who would like to give free rein to his feminine and romantic vein.

All in all, a splendour of flowers to spray on and fragrant as one rarely finds. Very fascinating in scent and blooming power, maybe today a little bit simple and conservative, for some even old-fashioned, for me a star of my collection!
With thanks for reading recommended by me.

like a yellow-white summer dress
For me it is a special moment every year when I put on one of the light dresses for the first time in the season and put my bare feet in the strappy sandals: finally summer is!
Since some parts of my wardrobe survived decades and are still wearable, this often means not only "summer", but also "memories".

"Evasion" is like one of these beautiful summer dresses: light, lively and at the same time classic in its yellow-white charm.
Rich white flowers of the early summer seducers lily of the valley, jasmine and later hyacinths exude their slightly intoxicating, originally feminine aroma.
In addition there is a rich yellow-flowered honeysuckle scent, which completes this summer idyll.

In "Evasion", the Bourjois house only manages with these few flower scents; a fragrant fabric enchants like the first, long-awaited summer days.
Without a lot of noise this fragrance comes along and remains surprisingly long for its lightness.

Some might call "evasion" boring: but is the first flowering of summer boring?
Let's not look more than once to enjoy the delicate colours and scents?

"Evasion" is worth a second look!
A graceful, elegant women's fragrance blows with tender lightness.
A scent of blossoms, the impregnated summer breeze, lovingly plays around and spreads cheerfulness: the relaxed cheerfulness of a summer day.

Here I know no excuses...
...to "take out" this scent. Because for me: Chypres still deserve it!!
Even though some mainstream perfumers turn up their noses and mock it as "granny scent".
If some people didn't have grandmothers, they'd look really "old. " But unacknowledged envy may sometimes be the cause of such stupid sayings. Envy that they don't dare... although they would like the scent itself..
"Evasion has all the attributes that make a really nice, "old-fashioned" chypre. Citrus herbaceous at the start, flowery, collector-like, soft heart and with a lot of "inky" fairytale forest oak moss peppered with a crisp woody base, in which even a small pussy cat may be hidden.
And from time to time her claws will extend.
It is neither a dupe of any other fragrance, although in its flowery phase it does show "Tosca-like" traits. The then in the "Nachgeruch" (yes, "Evasion" is also powdery like fragrance techno) echoes of "Maja" may show, because there is also a certain spice in the fragrance.
However, the longer I follow the course of the fragrance, the more details come to light that I had NOT yet noticed at the first test.
Since there is no fragrance pyramid, not only my nose can follow. Something like "birch tar" which has a leather-like scent, and also a good portion of vetyver I can recognize as well as spice or carnation.
In any case, there remains a little secret that "Evasion" may keep to itself. But that doesn't matter, because then it seems all the more interesting. Just high-grade "omig" , and suckut!!!!!
