Grass is ubiquitous, well, almost..
Hm, a fragrance that somehow translates as "The Flowers of Evil" or something, somehow attracts attention, doesn't it? "Grass lovers", of course, will roll their eyes if you call their beloved plants "evil" or bad, I suppose, but you have to admit that such plants get more attention, which is not necessarily bad, right? Well, of course it's bad if everyone tries like crazy to grow them themselves without being caught and the authorities try like crazy to stop this, ... an eternal cycle! D

Oh it's so hot, I have no idea, I can't think of anything better, so I let things slide a bit today and stay here with my moderate introduction... besides that it's nice weather... so what are you reading here? Get out of here! :DD Especially now that the (quite boring) World Cup game for third place is over, you don't want to become a steam noodle at home, do you? :DD

The fragrance:
Hm, I smell fresh green and slightly earthy notes at the beginning. The mandarin is unfortunately only hinted at, I say unfortunately because I like the smell of mandarins in fragrances very much. There's a little hemp, but the plant itself, not the distinctive scent you smell when someone or you smoke "something like that" :D
But above all I smell fresh earthy vetiver, whose grass note also comes across as a little green.
A little nutmeg is present, but I find that this fragrance is all too quickly superimposed by the vetiver again.
In the base it smells,... how else could it be, still vetiver, with a little hemp-muskat mix in the background :D

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is moderate and will only attract a little attention in the vicinity. So you don't necessarily get big wrapped up in a scent cloud here.
The shelf life is okay, seven or eight hours you can smell the scent.

The bottle:
The bottle is simply cylindrical and filled with yellowish scented liquid. A label circles the top of the bottle and displays the name and brand. And that was it, too, so the bottle is very simple and looks rather functional!

So, if you thought that this fragrance smells like grass (smokable grass, hemp :DD), you might be disappointed. In my opinion you can smell a little bit of hemp, but for the most part you can smell almost exclusively "stinknormales" Vetiver (well, seen that way grass :D), green-earthy notes, as you know it from scents like Guerlains Vetiver, only without the smoky note.

He's nice, but that's all he's got. It has no special highs and lows, is perhaps slightly boring, especially for those who have tried so many fragrances and is therefore probably one of those fragrances that will not be long remembered.
Nevertheless it is well usable in summer (and autumn) during the day, because it comes across loose and a little fresh. I wouldn't buy it, but as a gift I would use it every now and then, albeit rarely, since vetiver is no longer one of my favourite fragrances as it used to be.

You don't have to test it...

Soo, I hope you're out enjoying the sun and the weather in general. But since you're reading this, I assume that if you're really out there, you're still squatting somewhere and pulling out your smartphones instead of enjoying the weather. You have no idea what you're missing!! If you observe a certain, busy place for only one minute, then you could count 20-30 pretty pairs of legs, mu ha ha ha, argh, I'm really having a bang...!

So enjoy the weather, damn it! :D
