A few months ago I tried the current version of Dune in a nearby mall, and it seemed so ethereal and "delicate" that I did not find it interesting, but ... this morning, rummaging in my drawer of samples, which looks like the ark of Noe jejejeje, I found a small sample, that a companion gave me, of the vintage version, and as I wanted something fresh, I put it without regard, and ... What a beautiful perfume! Nothing to do with what I tried a few months ago, which was also nice, of course, but it was light years away from this, and I do not mean performance, because to be honest, in terms of duration and projection I have not noticed a difference so abysmal, where I notice the change is in the clarity of its aroma ...
Dune is green, it's sweet, it's fresh, it's ... magical, it has instantly transported me to my childhood, to the summers in my old house, an Andalusian tenement house, with an immense interior patio, sheltered by the shade of a large vine. I remember clearly the aroma of its leaves, of the clusters of green grapes hanging from curly threads, while, my brothers and I, we played at battles, and we used those green grapes, still unripe, like throwing weapons. And what if they were weapons! We had to take the same care when picking grapes, that, when we took enriched plutonium, because there were always wasps hovering over them. On one occasion, my little brother took a cluster without making sure there was one among the grapes, and when he closed his hand, he spiked it, put his hand like a glove, I remember the laughter, and the face of my brother, and As much as I have endured, I have not been able to hold back a few tears when remembering that he is no longer with me ... but, in spite of everything, it has been nice, because I have remembered him as the naughty rascal that he was, and I have seen him running, laughing and cry, and all that Dune has done.
Dune is a realistic fig, a Mediterranean afternoon in the shade of a fig tree eating figs, it smells of nap, sea, summer, all that smells Dune, although I wake up memories under the vine of my happy childhood.
The performance for me is moderately high, I do not feel so extraordinary as it is said that it was, it is true that it may be a bit bigger than the current version, but I do not think they are so different. The wake, like the current one, is moderately low, I think it is an intimate perfume and personal enjoyment. An aroma of warm and temperate climates, and daytime use.
A great perfume that lived better times, because, currently, only the spoils of what was was left.
Sorry for my bad english.
