McDonald's fries
First= powderies very violet, mini iris. Then= potato fries of McDonald's. That smell reminds me McDonald's coupons, mall food hall, childhood. Makes me hungry, really. I think this fastfood effect comes from= licorice+star ???? anise+powdery violets with bit of iris. :) Not much longevity, sorry. Just couple of hours.

Too Little, Too Weak
Costa Rica produces some of the best coffee in the world, but when you order it prepared in a cafe there, it is usually served in a diluted form which effectively destroys what would have been an excellent cup of coffee, if only it had been prepared with about 20% of the water that was actually used.

This lamentation about how what held potential as delightful can be ruined through dilution is fully relevant to Bvlgari BLV II, which boasts some of my favorite notes in its line-up but is so weak that I find myself wishing that I could distill off all of the extra solvent.

There is but the slightest soupçon of benzoin, licorice, violet, tonka, anise, labdanum, etc., in this composition. Even the patchouli is very difficult to tease out. What a beauty this might have been, if only the notes had been combined in sufficient concentration! When I smell something this flimsy (and an edp at that!) I wonder whether the perfumer may have been trying to protect the wearer from overapplication, a protection which we perfumistas really do not need. Thank you very much all the same for your misguided paternalism. Désolée.

For the record, BLV II bears nearly no resemblance to BLV, and I have no idea why it was marketed as a flanker. The only overlap I find at all is that both are unisex, not feminine fragrances.

Soft, frozen violets and licorice
Testing BLV Eau de Parfum II for the first time was met with utterances of approval and thoughts along the lines of, "yes, I would definitely wear something like this." I held this fragrance in such high-esteem that when I went to smell it again only a few hours after application, I was horrified to have found it vanished into thin air.

Despite its poor lasting strength, BLV Eau de Parfum II is one of the most unique fragrance releases in the last year or so.

The candied violet when mixed with the rich, licoricey anise and mandarin orange is divine. The opening was both likable and different, being both clean and pretty at the same time.

Unfortunately the scent becomes much softer and more watery as the fragrance develops. The fragrance loses a lot of its concentration, with the patchouli and vetiver being so diluted that they're barely there.

A shame really, seeming that this fragrance had so much promise. The drydown was only slight evidence of its former glory. Musk and tonka bean tended to dominate, but only for a few seconds before this fragrance disappeared completely.

This fragrance was a much improved, more balanced and a heavily powdered version of the original BLV. A pity that this fragrance didn't have the same amount of longevity.

Jarring mashup of men's sports cologne, melon, liquorice and aquatic floral. Manages to smell simultaneously watery, pungent and sweaty.
