Yeah, yeah, my title might sound sexy, right? But unfortunately (as always) it's not like that! *sigh*
No, hot laundry here does not mean lingerie or rather perfumes in lingerie (*run away* :DD) or something like that, but actually laundry that is hot, i.e. that is washed in hot water, cooking laundry for example. And although in all the years that I've been spamming around on Parfumo and getting on everyone's nerves, I've found more and more favorites for clean, clean and soapy scents, there is a kind of clean scent that I don't like at all.
And that is, as already described with the EDT of this smell here, cooking laundry. I still remember how my mother used to cook or wash the dirty cotton kitchen towels in big cooking pots or so in hot water. And I hated that smell! Not the cotton scent itself, because when it smells fresh like... well, just like fresh laundry, it smells quite pleasant and beautiful, but when cooked it smells terribly stuffy to me. Then I always have the feeling that I can hardly breathe properly and have to leave the room immediately. The worst thing is, of course, when someone has the idea to cook something like this in the middle of the hottest summer! Only it's a good thing that today hardly anyone seems to cook the laundry at home, but throws everything nicely into the washing machine, only to despair which of the 1000 preset settings one should take... :D
Whatever. A real comparison with the EDT of the fragrance here I can't write directly, because I only have the EDP available at the moment, but maybe I can remember the EDT to some extent, because it hasn't been that long since I tried the fragrance.
I have the feeling that the fragrance here starts much fresher than the EDT. I don't smell mandarins like the EDT, but I smell just as nice, but here much more tangy lemons, which leave a super fresh impression together with the lemon balm-like verbena. In addition, I don't find the fragrance as stuffy as the EDT at the beginning, but rather clean and fresh. It smells a little like washing powder, too.
A little later the scent gets a little stuffier, but not because of the warm cotton, but more because of the lilac, which is not so bad now and you ladies might like it. There seem to be synthetic notes in the background, but they don't bother me, because they are as beautifully scented as the pure synthetic notes, as you know them from Prada infusion scents (provided you like these Pradas of course!).
Of course you can also smell the warm or hot cotton here, it is also the theme of the scent, but its scent and above all its (for me) stuffy charisma is much less pronounced here than with EDT, which I find very great, because the scent smells more pleasant, even if the scent should gain a little more stuffness in the later basis.
With the maritime notes I'm unsure,... yes through the "washing water" it could have something aquatic about it, but maritime means with me mostly also that a scent smells a little algal, or at least a little salty, which in my opinion is not the case here! In any case, the scent remains slightly fragrant with cotton and flowers until the end, and is clean and clean... and well, as I said a little bit stuffy.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is okay, and for me it's stronger than the EDT. You can't smell the scent from a great distance, but still it's not that weak.
The durability is surprisingly long for a clean fragrance and can easily withstand six, seven hours and more.
The bottle is rectangular and has a frosted, turquoise coloured glass. On the front you can see the name and the brand on it, the lid is chrome plated, high and cylindrical. Actually, it's more functional than beautiful. I find the crystal clear bottle of the EDT a little more successful.
Soo, I have to say that the EDP surprised me a bit, because I actually assumed that the scent would have been just as stuffy. No, the EDP looks fresher and simply more beautiful and is therefore the clearer recommendation if you want to smell after cooking :DD
It may be a bit stuffy, but by far not as stuffy as the EDT.
It's good for warm days because it comes across less stuffy (oh man, how often did I mention the word "stuffy" now? :D) and on such hot days it doesn't take the air out of your breath, he he he. Still, I find Fresh Laundry much nicer and fresher, but that's ultimately a matter of taste.
I also have to remember that when it's not so hot anymore, I have to do some laundry again (I'm lucky to have a lot of clothes until then, although some color combinations of shorts and t-shirts might not be so great anymore, argh :D).
And washing also means ironing, at least some of the laundry,... and ironing means -> IGITTTT!!! D
As always, the dirty finches among you won't like the scent, and since I think the scent here was wrongly rated so much weak, I assume more dirty finches wallow in the dirt,... uh, I meant hanging around on Parfumo here, than I had assumed, hey :DD
So if you like clean fragrances, you should sniff these clean fragrances!
