"the good old days" - childhood memories and much, much more...
Maybe one or the other has already read a comment from me and knows that I like Orientals. But above all, as a long, long, long-time wearer of Lagerfeld Classic, I focus on so-called "oldschool" fragrances, forgotten perfume pearls and alleged "classics". In this context, I noticed Zino by Davidoff about half a year ago.
I hardly dare say it, but I didn't know Zino until then. So I also have no idea of the reformulations described or the scent chords of earlier Zinos. Mine comes from the big online retailer and is about six months in my possession. There it rested, until two/three weeks ago, at about the same time as my start on Parfumo, Zino's fragrance portal opened for me. And what a portal that is - truly!
Of course Zino impressed me. This is what this fragrance certainly does for everyone, positive or negative. For me the first time with Zino was a nice experience, a good feeling. So the fragrance was reapplied on the following days, calm down, feelings and thoughts ordered to reflect on which memories or emotions were addressed.
I grew up near an old Wehrmacht airport. In the meantime the runways, halls, squares etc. which had been blown up years ago were partly overgrown and our play and adventure meadows were overgrown. There were dark, small caves, wild dumps, wet bomb craters, hot gravel and stone surfaces and an infinite amount of herbs, weeds, grasses, mosses, berries and wild spices, all growing wonderfully on the barren surfaces. Hardly noticed at the time, it was this childhood scent that streamed out of Davidoff's Zino bottle for me. Together with the fresh, balsamic mint scent that floats everywhere, which escaped the typical peppermint fields of the area, especially on hot summer days, the makers of Zino have safely bottled this aroma and preserved it for me and today! A very nice emotional experience to a childhood and adolescence almost without caution, fear, rules, etiquette, time pressure, simply to a happiness on earth!
As the fragrance evolves, so did I. The first smoky tires of bicycle and moped, the first leather jacket, first attempts with cheap tobacco and rum and of course the sweet temptation of the first kisses and aromas of strange girls on old wooden dance floors in stuffy cultural houses and pubs. A time of very positive expectations, hopes and impatience - until the end!
