Hello and welcome to my latest comment. It's about "Good Girl" by Carolina Herrera, when I have to think hard whether there are really "Good Girls" in this world, mu ha ha ha ha. The only really good and lovely girls seem to be Laura and Vera, but these girls are also cats from my own children's book series (yeah, I also write other things besides scented comments). So it was clear that the characters had to be cats, right? D
On the other hand... many women and girls are actually associated with cats! Yes, that's true! Catwoman for example (and nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!)! That's just a comic character, you say now? Well,... then I'll take all those models who present these more or less hair-raising clothes of the designers on the catwalk,... isn't that thing called a catwalk? Where the ladies go for a little walk and then fall over in rows because nobody can walk decently in those stupid designer shoes? Huiii... even the bottle shoe of "Good Girl" looks quite uncomfortable, even if it should still look "normal" in contrast to some fashionable creations (I know, the stupidest fashion stuff is supposed to be art, but without sounding like a philistine, I think that many of them look pretty stupid... no matter if women's or men's fashion... you have to search in Google pictures for this meme "Men fashion 1948 meme" and you understand what I mean! :DD).
Anyway, Good Girl is one of the fragrances that seems to interest many people, even if it is received quite differently. Therefore I decided to add my mustard to it, but I would have done it anyway, after all I am the permanent babbler here... :D
The fragrance begins with bergamot, which smells lemony, but quickly recedes into the background, as the sweet tonka bean and beautiful almonds can be smelled very quickly.
Also quickly other sweet scents are added, which now seem to come more from flowers, jasmine and so on, but they are not strong enough, so that I cannot distinguish them from each other or determine them. Especially since the tonka/almond combination is still quite strong anyway.
I also perceive a small, synthetic connotation. This one can be smelled clearly, but is not really disturbing, even if it would be nicer without it.
As I go on, I notice a ginger-like, herbaceous note, not very strong, but somehow its scent reminds me a bit of ginger. It could also be neroli, but I find it ginger-like when combined with all the other scents. Anyway, the scent remains quite sweet and gets warmer and more softly powdery due to the budding vanilla (especially combined with the tonka bean).
Towards the end, the fragrance becomes even more powdery and gentle and also sweetly gourmand. This is mainly due to the combination of such great scents as vanilla, tonka bean, chocolaty-sweet scents and a little musk. The end is already quite heavy, but therefore all the more suitable for colder days. A good scent.
The Sillage and the durability:
The charisma is strong, you can quickly smell the fragrance on one, even if she is standing a little further away. The durability is also quite good with more than eight hours of adhesion to the skin.
The bottle was designed like a shoe and even looks sexy, even though she looks almost too extreme even for high heels (right??), but there should be room for the fragrance and not your feet, which won't fit in there anyway, even if you keep saying that you have a shoe size of 32 or so... :D
Anyway, a great and original bottle :D
Soo, now that was Good Girl. And this girl already smells delicious :D Of course he is no world novelty, but I think I really don't need to mention that, because strictly speaking hardly any scent smells really extremely new, since everything has been there before today. And those that really smell new are mostly unbearable :D
Anyway, I thought Good Girl was pretty good. I like scents that are powdery-sweetish, especially with the eternal dream team scents of vanilla and tonka bean. Add some almond and musk and yes, all this makes for a rather familiar scent, which you already know from various other fragrances like from Guerlain and other manufacturers, but it smells great, and that's the main thing. Especially since this fragrance also has a good sillage and shelf life and also comes in a more than great and creative bottle.
Only the slightly synthetic note, especially in the middle part, could have been omitted, but here it's more of a luxury problem, since the synthetic isn't really disturbing and moreover hardly smells at all in the base.
For me, it belongs in autumn and winter and represents a good going-out/evening scent that everyone could have a look at, not only the younger ones, in case you've been thinking of a girlie scent just because of the bottle. But I don't think you were thinking about girlies here, because the bottle represents a shoe and you ladies go absolutely crazy when it comes to shoes, no matter how old you are (as clichéd as this may sound... come on, tell me, how many shoes do you own? :D)
And that's how I got to the end. Was I making fun of you ladies too much, or was I bitching about you? But hey, even if... I called you cats, and who doesn't like cats? :)))
Hey hey, see you! Have a nice evening and see you next time :)
