Hey, guys, hello and welcome to a new comment from me. I hope that today you had a pleasant, free day and could improve it... well... perhaps with a new commi from me again :D
Yeah, yeah, that sounded very narcissistic and arrogant of me, but hey, I think this is the first time I've written something like this, right? Otherwise I only grumble here anyway or make fun of you or something... puh, I'm bad... :D
Anyway, today I come to a fragrance from Comptoir Sud Pacifique, namely vanilla banana. Although I really like bananas very much (both aromatic and the scent in general), I rather cautiously approach this scent, because the last Comptoir scent I tried here (Matin Câlin) was a total disaster with a (for me personally) unbearable scent, so that I had rated the scent with such a low score as it had not been for a long time, namely with 2.5 points, bah... but I found the scent really *wurg-without-ende-würg* !!
All right, enough talking. I put on the fragrance and hope for the best, because only because of a totally bad fragrance or a bad olfactory experience I do not give up here yet for a long time. Otherwise I would have vamoosed long ago after the equally horrible "Tarnish" by Demeter Fragrance Library! Yes yes, you still have me on your neck, probably even longer than you like :D
So, and now for the fragrance!
It smells like garbage milk! As already indicated in the title, it is the banana flavoured variety. Yes, you immediately smell bananas, which smell more sweet as in Müllermilch or banana-flavored sweets instead of being fruity, but still, the scent is pretty nice, especially if you like the banana scent. There's also vanilla, which goes pretty well with the banana.
A little later the fragrance gets a light, flowery green note, I think it should be the banana leaf. I also have the light smell of a banana peel in my nose, that's a kind of slightly bitter aroma you can taste when you bite into the banana peel (why ever... :D). However, neither the banana peel nor the banana leaf lasts too long, so that one soon only smells the fruit itself and vanilla again.
Even later the vanilla gets stronger and leaves the banana scent a bit behind, which you can still smell a bit good, though. And there's not much more to it either, because basically you can only smell vanilla and banana all the time, whereas in the very late days you can only smell vanilla.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is mediocre and can be easily smelled over distances that are not too long, for example when you are with others in a small room or so. The shelf life is better, the scent can be smelled for more than ten hours.
The bottle is a silver-plated cylindrical container with a domed end on which the cylindrical chrome-plated lid is placed. On the front you can see a shiny blue label with logo and name. All in all quite simple and not very beautiful.
So, this fragrance has not turned out as extremely bad as Matin Câlin. Well, he didn't turn out bad at all, but rather quite nice. Vanilla banana may not be a high flyer, but it smells nice and should please everyone who likes gourmand scents and especially banana scents.
One could use this fragrance among other things for going out (I think, the season is not important here, because the fragrance is neither very strong nor too weak), because it smells sweet and powdery (and with it again even delicious, e.g. on the woman's skin, hmmmm :)) he he, but for everyday life it is rather unsuitable. Of course, you should be aware that after a few hours you will only smell like vanilla, as is often the case with many intense vanilla fragrances.
Yep, so a test is recommended! And I can dare myself sometime also times to the other smells of this mark, since I know now that not all of them so correctly *würg* smell, oh one oh one ... :D
Well then, I wish you all a nice evening, and see you :)
