Force of Nature
Niagara Falls is a force of nature between Canada and America.
The masses of water fall down violently and wet the people standing around with shallow droplets.

The fragrance with the descriptive name "Niagara" is in no way inferior to the actual natural spectacle overseas. I recently received a sample of the aforementioned water and was blown away. What an enormous, even epochal scent came up to me here. I had to collect myself before I could put it into words.

It is one of those fragrances that can create worlds and make landscapes appear. Something of enormous proportions is created here. A landscape that is watery, green, heavily moss-covered and needle-filled. Watery, however, not in the sense of aquatic, but fresh water is what can be smelled. This is accompanied by a light spice, it is the tymian, which can be perceived very well. But there are also citric notes, even if only minimal. The lime, for example, gives the whole thing only a subtle sour background. Nevertheless, the fragrance also has a slightly musty vibe, but this is to be expected considering the landscape we are looking at. Where water and moss, there is also a bit of moss. Musty.

If you add these olfactory impressions to a landscape picture, it can be said that the Niagara Falls are reproduced quite appropriately. Although the spicy notes also make one think of other landscapes/areas, such as more Mediterranean areas. For me, it is the mossy green notes and the watery undertone that make one think of those waterfalls.

The fragrance is also a force of nature in terms of durability and silage. Enormous, space-consuming, persistent are attributes that probably describe it best. It can last for 8-12 hours and you can smell it almost always.

Conclusion: A beautiful green-spicy scent of the 90s with oldschool vibe, enormous durability and the special ability to bring landscapes to life. I wouldn't wear it anymore, it's nice to have a sample, to spray something on your arm and start dreaming. If you do wear it anyway, then spring would be perfect to give off a green aura. Apart from that I am glad to have tested it.

A force of nature that knows how to fascinate...

Niagara Falls on Mediterranean
Thanks to Parfumo I was able to get a bottle from Niagara and a little later even a bottle. I didn't have to hesitate for long because I already liked the filling very much.
It has already been commented that one lies fast beside it regarding the year of publication. At the beginning of the 1980s at the earliest, earlier, I would have expected.
The scent starts citric-spicy and interesting for me: intensely berry. The black currant sets the tone for me and remains present for 2-3 hours. The fresh and spicy start is very harmonious. Thyme quickly suggests that this is rather Mediterranean water and none from the North American river or even waterfall.
The softwood notes are based on warm wood in sunlight. There are no juice green pines or cypresses in the shade.
Minigolf has already sketched in her commentary a true beautiful landscape in Provence.
While the scent changes into a berry wood note, cistus rose and vetiver prepare a bitter exit for my sensation. I still smell berries, I smell wood notes and a warm tart note.
This over 5 hours, afterwards only directly on the skin.
I smell (see would be the wrong term) the fragrance rather to gentlemen over 40 or younger gentlemen.
It is unfortunate that it is no longer produced, I do not know anything comparable, but I am not yet a professional perfumo.

The bottle is timelessly beautiful. But here, too, one quickly thinks of the 1960s or 1970s. In the mid-1990s there were usually significantly more sculptures and more modern forms
PS: At the last test of the Niagara I wore this one on the left and on the right arm the Ho slope, a completely different adjusted classic. That was a revelation. I won't be crazy enough to lay these rarities out now, but the interaction was impressive!
