Sorrow box: Ask Dr Onckelmann!
"Hababah! And again bah!"
Mömselbach pulled his face in agony and defiantly put his lower lip forward.
For some time now, he has found little pleasure in looking after the grief box of an odorous community.
Decades ago this was still a pleasant and prosperous wandering through astonishing expanses, not to say the whole world of exquisite elixirs, but now a lack of exclusivity and subtlety, which was to be found there, desolated all joy and lastingly diminished all prosperity. Consequently, the column "Ask Dr. Onckelmann" became more and more a depressing sequence of seemingly always the same questions.
Should he continue to devote himself to them?

"Nevermore!" murmured Mömselbach in disgust Then he shook dramatically.
"Hach," it thought in him, "you want to run amuck!"

What, he asked himself, made people ask him questions about boring, arbitrary, interchangeable and uninspiredly adulterated plasters that he could not bring himself to call "perfume"?
Who, he asked himself further, was inclined to voluntarily buy and open such a brew, to become an everlasting nefarious ... no, but rather a quite nefarious harassment of innocent passers-by, street trees and the latter's inherent bird life?

A large number of the inquiries in his agony box consisted of justified, but miserably formulated complaints about declining quality and durability of popular, well-known, but not proven fragrances.
These had apparently fallen into the hands of a syndicate of marauding, nefarious, internationally networked despisers of taste.
They regarded it a priori as their noblest duty to drive their fellow men to weariness and make them the object of their well-meant but unspeakably tiresome educational efforts.
Recently, they have been using psychological cruelties called "reformulation" to target the perfume lover as such and the object of his affection in order to depress the latter and cause lasting damage to the latter.
Or to be rotten.
If that's still necessary.

Some of the sweetly threadbare or even sweetly penetrating creations described as "new" seemed from the outset to be designed to promote the general decay of all aesthetics, and this also seemed to be the declared aim of the general olfactory levelling.

And now this.
In his grief box there was an inquiry whose sender called himself Schantall Mutzenbecher-Gumpicht. Mömselbach immediately feared the worst and was not disappointed.
Schantall Mutzenbecher-Gumpicht bothered him with a jeremiad, the meaning of which he was able to unravel after reading it several times to such an extent that the content became clear to him.
The blissful maiden intended to noblite him, Mömselbach, to the arbiter elegantiarum and asked him for his opinion on a water of scent, which she sought to acquire for the apparently scantily entrusted one.
However, Mömselbach quickly overcame the speechlessness that arose in the face of this idea when he remembered the disgusting brew.
Following the dictates of the taste disdainers, the product in question, which had been requested and was obviously quite in demand, had also been conceived by Bulgari as an almost malicious attack on the still intact olfactory nerves of normal people. As expected, as well as successfully, they had created a swirling sweetish synthetic uniform mash, enriched with so-called woody notes, which tried to imitate imitation plywood.
Very unproductive, this stuff.
Especially since, to be on the safe side, extremely durable notes had been added, which were deceptively similar to those of an aging, charred plastic shower curtain.
Many people to whom Mömselbach felt a friendship or a bond in some other way were, in view of the rumours of this base spoon, enthusiastic shouts like "Yuck! "What's that smell?" or "Help! Call the fire brigade and ambulance!" escaped Mömselbach agreed with them in enthusiastic rejection.

Therefore he opened the answer intended for Schantall Mutzenbecher-Gumpicht with the intimate words:
"Dear, devastated madam!"
"This fragrance" Mömselbach then continued with his own fine heart beat, "resembles a warty toad who does not want to become a princess in spite of lush smooching. The washed-out sweetness, which is doomed to enter into an unhappy liaison with the penetrating note of subtly fuming plastic, will hopefully one day be happily lost in the orcus of oblivion. This fragrance is one of those creations that no one misses even when they are still with us. You, my lady, should refrain from thinking of him. On the other hand, I concede that this brew is a sufficient and unique reason to be predestined for a splendid inner-family quarrel with a subsequent divorce.
Your very devoted Dr. Yannik-Sebaldus Onckelmann"

So, Mömselbach thought, it's probably a futile labour of love, but this perforates me most tangentially.

"Ha!" he murmured pensive, "how did the great philosopher Balthasar Matzbächen speak? He said: "On a slope, inclination is my duty!

Life is too short for bad scents
The good rating is not comprehensible for me. I received the fragrance as a gift.

Here are a few reasons why this scent failed me:
-) The relationship between floral and woody notes is not harmonious and musk is dominant.
-) Neroli is far too weak.
-) I smell only pure synthetic - what a pity! Here you can optimize.
-) Headaches and nausea occurred.
-) Even 5x hand washing with soap could not "remove" the scent. This disturbs me all the more because I simply can't stand the scent.

There are so many other good scents in this category. Another smash that won't make it into my collection. But if you like musk a lot, you might find it here.

I must admit that I hardly like the smell of Mr. Morillas. The tastes are too different An orientation towards the perfumer, and not the brand, will probably make more sense for me in the future.

Well prepared for the warm seasons
Neroli and I were never friends. So I was all the more surprised when I received a sample of the Bvlgari Wood Neroli and I liked it. It took several weeks and tests until I gave in and finally put the fragrance on my wish list and a few days ago in my collection :-)

People keep saying he's like Bright Neroli. I can't confirm that. I also compared them directly. Sure, both are Neroli fragrances, but the Wood Neroli looks much more modern and fresh than any other Neroli fragrance I know.

I can only join Warilol "A modern take on Neroli" describes it perfectly!
That actually says it all :-)

What I like about the fragrance is its great freshness, the careful use of neroli and above all its durability and silage. For a Freshy, really outstanding. I can still perceive it after a day at work and even during the day the scent comes out again and again.

I am really looking forward to the intensive use in spring/summer and I can only recommend to give this great fragrance a chance.

A modern take on Neroli
Classic Neroli fragrances just don't really want to fit a younger person, that must be due to the granny association and 4711, a curse so to speak, made in Germany. What a pity, because basically I like this note very much.

The new flanker from Bulgari could help here. The face of the advertising campaign is a 33-year-old model named Nick Bateman, known through Instagram and various other social media. If you stick this guy on your poster, it must be a modern fragrance, and that despite Neroli?

The answer is clearly yes! Alberto Morillas has created a youthful Neorli fragrance here, which in my opinion can be worn without any problems in one's mid-twenties, upward compatible of course.

Immediately after spraying on you get this juicy Neroli freshness, which in combination with the bergamot, however, is clearly tamed, which in turn makes this modern twist, very beautiful!
The further course proves to be very gentle, the term "woody amber" describes this almost perfectly. All in all, this is a very bright, fresh and juicy fragrance.

As far as the performance is concerned, not much can be expected here, logically, as there is no dark wooden base. The cirtische freshness lasts about 2 hours and changes at the end into a creamy amber wood, very gently coming along. On the skin I could thus achieve a durability of about 6 hours.

The only point of criticism: I would have liked a darker wood note, which is exactly what I already criticized with Wood Essence back then. But okay, you wanted to target the mainstream and the younger audience. So comparisons to Ferraris Bright Neroli or Neroli Portofino are not really useful here.

In summary, I think Bulgari's Wood Neroli was the best designer release in 2019. At that time I was desperately looking for a modern Neroli fragrance that I could wear, and it was just right.

Wood and neroli, sometimes you don't need any more!
Hello guys, today I'm coming to a Bvlgari men's fragrance, which I just happened to see standing on the shelf and thought I could test it sometime. Admittedly, the name "Neroli" also attracted me, as I like Neroli, but I also liked the colouring of the bottle. Besides, I had to change again, after I had tried more women's fragrances lately.

Of course I have to say that on my other arm there was still a scent of women on it, which I will introduce here sometime... :D But anyway, now it's just about this woody-citric Nerolid scent, which admittedly seems to be a little misplaced, seasonal, because it already comes across fresher and is therefore more of a spring and summer scent. So it was even worse to test it now, because today is a very, VERY rainy day. So rainy that even my cat didn't feel like going out so far, and usually it's hard to keep him in the apartment when he's not sleeping... on the other hand it's cold and the heating is burning, so the marble plate above the heating is warming up a lot, which the cat really likes :) And us humans possibly also, who once in the winter by an apartment with underfloor heating ran around, who knows, what I mean :)

Anyway, I now come to the fragrance, which I found quite nice!

The fragrance:
Soo, Wood Neroli begins with exactly the same scents that the fragrance already hints at in its name, namely woody notes and neroli. At the beginning you can smell bergamot, which gives a citrus-fresh feeling and citrus fans like it anyway. Then the intensive Neroliduft becomes well noticeable, which lasts also longer. Besides, there are the mentioned woody scents. While these still smell "generally woody" at the beginning, one smells a cedar further and further later, whereby also the intensity of this woody note increases clearly.
In the middle part, the mix of citric and woody notes comes across as a classic men's fragrance, so for men aged 35-40 or older (us old sacks... *sigh* :D), because it partly has this light, barbarshop-like aura.
Later in the base, however, this classic aura is weaker again, the fragrance then smells more woody again and after neroli and general citric notes such as bergamot, whereby the woody notes, thus above all the cedar, are now clearly stronger. And despite the amber, the fragrance is only slightly sweet. That was it, by and large. That may not sound very spectacular now, but it's nice in the nose, I liked the scent, even though I don't really have to have it.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage has turned out to be above average. And for a fragrance that also comes across fresher and contains citric notes, the Sillage is even very good. One will be well perceived with the scent, perhaps not necessarily now outside in the cold weather, but on warmer days it will already come across well. It is also quite durable, there are easily nine to ten hours in here, but of course it is quite weak at the late hour.

The bottle:
The bottle is rectangular, thick-walled and therefore very massive and heavy, inside it is filled with a yellowish scent liquid. The spray head (and lid at the same time) is also cylindrical and large, it is chrome-plated, but has an embedded black disc in the middle with the name and logo of Bvlgari. By the way: If you press down the spray head quite slowly, then the scent shoots out of the nozzle like a jet of water. I mean, this is the case with most flacons in such a way that the jet cannot build up with little activity and then flows more out of the spray head, but here a more powerful jet shot at me without turning into a fog. But as I said, all in all a beautiful bottle.

As already written in the description of the fragrance I do not find the fragrance bad. Sure, it hasn't really become that spectacular, some of you might even call it boring, but I liked it because it has a nice, fresh scent for me, which you can use in spring and summer as a loose scent for everyday life. Of course one must also say that exactly this kind of scent gives like sand at the sea and depends here on the personal taste. And the smell of Bvlgari is also a little more expensive,... so whether the price is worth it, everyone must know for himself. I myself wouldn't buy it now, but as a present I would still use it instead of passing it on for example :D

It is not a must to test this scent, but you don't make a mistake if you sacrifice an arm for it, especially if you like neroli and woody scents without much bells and whistles. Oh and he also comes across a little bit clean towards the end, so he is also perfect for all men who clichédly take a shower only once every two weeks or so, especially now in the cold weather :DD

That's it, then! I wish you all a nice evening and see you next time :)

heavy orange blossoms caught on fresh laundry
It's quite an orange-blossom cracker, unusual for a men's scent. The top note is dreamy, flowery, natural, somehow greenish (like the bottle) and slightly woody. The almost heavy flowers also contain a slight sweetness. Later, more aquatic-clean musk comes through, orange blossom and neroli are still well present, but no longer so natural. From here on I don't like it so much that I would like to have it myself, because I'm not a fan of clean scents. But he's definitely unisex. A nice freshness scent for the summer, on warm skin certainly very attractive, on paper it is a little too cool or too clean for me.

Sovereign work of BVL
This perfume is "thank God" not in the mainstream class a la Sauvage, Poco Rabanne & Co.
A sovereign companion; keeps bombastic, silage and durability of my eighth above average.
Female fans on top of that - at least that's the confirmation in the office...;-)
Strong similarities to Aqua di Parma lines.

No conglomerate of innumerable fragrances; beautifully reduced: Freshness, woodiness dominate, flower, and spice remain very long on the skin!

Absolute recommendation to buy!

Success
Nothing really good from Bvlgari has appeared for a long time. Admittedly, one can argue about the lack of imagination in naming the fragrances, but the fragrance is a perfect summer companion. Creamy orange, pleasantly restrained musk and wood, i.e. "wood" just in the base. Thunder god is surely right, an Acqua di Parma DNA is recognizable, but I like him, and my girlfriend too. What more do we need? H&S 2+, Eau de Parfum eben.

Lovely opening that quickly transitions into that very familiar Morillas musky dry down. Not entirely unique, but still very nice.

Sweet scent that strongly reminds me of fresh flowers with an intoxicating opening and close to jasmin. Gone in 15 minutes. Bad performance.
