From the kitchen to the bottle
That Christian has become a perfumer was pure coincidence. What coincidences don't exist. An original interior decorator became one of the most gifted perfumers through an "attic find".
To the topic coincidence: in my opinion the gloss has always been missing in my collection and I wanted to bring it in with Clive Christian.
I got myself a 10ml Travel Size bottle back then. The bottle is a little dream. Not too playful and kitschy but nevertheless extremely elegant and unisex.
I put on the scent and fell out of all the clouds. In my youth I had bought this one bottle from the "cheaper" shelf from the miller. I think almost everyone smelled like the banani back then. I actually recognized him in the CC.
Clear in the quality and "purity" of the fragrance, CC cannot be surpassed. CC is much warmer, has more depth and Eike's good load of peach makes him look youthful but somehow grown up. The Banani's like a "kitschplörre" against him.
I like the banani. And it has a good price-performance ratio. The CC there I understand the price surely also. This fragrance is incredibly high quality and maximum luxurious.
Durability unsurpassed. You can barely get it off your skin. But I wouldn't buy a 50 or a 100 from it. The 10ml will probably last me the next few years. He remains something special and I really don't need much of it

A non obvious Tresor descendant
It might not seem, but X for Women descends directly from one of the most influent fragrance in the feminine fragrances, the fruity floral made by Sophia Grosjman for Lancôme, Tresor. The main Tresor structure is here, tough not in the same proportion; i feel that the musk and iso e super influence are reduced or masked to fit the cleaned patchouli, without the typical earthiness of this material, which gives the fragrance a typical touch of a modern chypre fragrance. The sweet violet aroma of ionones (synthetic molecules used to create both violet and iris accord) is also smaller here, what makes it difficult to see clearly the Tresor Influence. This way what ends standing out more for me is the fruity and milky touch from the aldehyde C14 (which is really a lactone instead of an aldehyde), very used to create this silky peach touch. The jasmine aroma here is luminous, light, abstract, typical of compositions where hedione is used, filled here with some synthetics or an accord that modify this floral part and also give a spicy floral aroma, something that reminds me in some angles a carnation aroma. Certainly this is a quite beautiful fragrance, hot, of excellent performance and evolution on skin, but this is another Clive creation clearly commercial disguised in a luxury fragrance, using the same synthetics and saying that uses precious materials (it might even be used here, but only in small amounts). Certainly, it's a good example of a)when you purchase an expensive fragrance, 50% of the price is probably the exclusivity aura and b) a luxury fragrance doesn't need to be expensive in its composition, but has to look like it is.
