The geranium and the leather jacket
Maybe I am alone with this peculiarity, but it happens more and more often that I choose my fragrance depending on the material of my clothes of the day. So there are my favourites for silk blouses (Molecule 01, Etro Musk), there's my cashmere team (Amour by Kenzo, Abel odors Cobalt Amber, Frederic malles Dries van Noten,...), white shirt scents (Infusion d'Iris, Ambrette 9) and of course people who move between worlds, sometimes here, sometimes there. And then there is the leather jacket team. And Molecule 234.38 together with Slow Dance (ideally layered) is at the top of my list here at the moment. I LOVE the combination of these scents together with the inherent smell of my suede jacket. The crunching sound with every movement of my arms, plus maybe the delicate mint scent of a chewing gum pack from my jacket pocket...and all this with a cold autumn wind in my hair...this combination makes me wishful thinking. SlowDance starts (for me) amazingly sweet. But not sugary, not tasty, not like something edible. Rather cool sweet, abstract and somehow from the beginning ....cool. Just like my leather jacket. The geranium gives the first course something grassy and moist and somehow classic together with the violet. And then the labdanum, the skin-tight warm vanilla, the light and not at all earthy patchouli touch. Now this Byredo becomes really cuddly, soft and cosy without losing its coolness. But what blows my mind most is its ability to be reactivated by water. I like to spray perfume on the back of my neck. Preferably on the lower hairline. Every time I take a shower, I am met by an enchanting scent, a vanilla, resinous breeze that I would like to make my signature.
