Different than expected
It was once again just before my vacation. I of course in high spirits. So purely in the city and after some unsuccessful visits to the usual clothing stores I suddenly had a huge desire for a new fragrance. I still had a few scents on my phone that I wanted to try out because of the good reviews, the scent pyramids and of course the beautiful bottles. So I went to the Dougi in the pedestrian zone. Hach how wonderful! Corona had kept me away for far too long. So it was all the nicer to walk into a perfumery again. The fragrance that envelops me. The elegance that this wonderful ambience exudes. I'm back! I was able to test four fragrances. None of them were what I was looking for. They didn't have the fifth scent on my list. Dolce vita. I must have looked very disappointed. The extremely nice employee at the Dougie then sent me a few doors down. To Karstadt. They had their very own Dior department there. So of course I went there. What a wonderful department! First come the other perfumes. Hundreds of them. Thousands of them! And then at the very end, actually, a separate Dior section. Again, super nice staff. And it's all very elegant. The testers don't just stand there, they're fetched specially. So there it is. Dolce vita. First, of course, on the test strips. No, wait They have test tapes. The scent probably unfolds better there, says the super sweet employee. Now that's what I call love for the scent! The first spray on the test strip actually made me curious. It took a while until I could smell something, because the ribbon was constantly waving back and forth. But I followed it with my nose and actually caught something like a first whiff. Must have looked nice. I always follow the band with my nose. The lady had then a mercy and held me the tape directly under the nose. Then I wanted to know exactly and had the scent sprayed on my wrist. Then I went outside to let it work. I found it really stunning. Walked back and forth outside in the rain and kept sniffing my wrist. Beautiful! Also the scent progression. Then at the end there was something. Something weird. But anyway. It's a great scent. At least, that's what I told myself. So I went back and bought it. I sprayed myself with it at home the next day after my shower, full of anticipation. And what can I say. I suddenly didn't like it anymore. The first moment was still as stunning as the first time I tested it. But then what I had smelled the day before came out. A weird development on my skin. I then did the ultimate test. My daughter had to serve. She had the Dolce vita sprayed on her hand. And there it was again. Just stunningly beautiful, from start to finish. Conclusion. The scent and I, we are not going to be friends. He doesn't like me. Dear ones, I now have here a newly purchased fragrance. It's missing exactly four sprays. I think it would be a shame to leave it in a drawer and forget about it. What should I do? I think I would like to give it to a lover of this fragrance. It comes disinfected in the original packaging. It was really just bought 2 weeks ago. Who would like to have it? Possibly for a sample or two of other perfumes to trade?
