As soon as you start writing posts here regularly, they are of course read and commented by various users. After a while you realize that a loyal readership forms, which accompanies you nicely on your journey. And with one or the other one exchanges bspw. also again and again samples (special thanks to Bastian, who supplies me again and again with great samples!)
Also with me it is of course in the meantime in such a way, and since one is nice and friendly from the ground up, one does the one or other also a favor and tests among other things his or her signature. Of course, not only for the sake of the person, but also because you yourself show interest in the fragrance ;
The always extremely good-humored user Fresh21, whose name hardly fits like another in his preferred fragrance direction and collection, is one of these users. And my good one, the coincidence wanted it in such a way that only recently to a Flakon order I had actually got a small sample of your Higher's along. Funny, isn't it? Your signature I have now tested and would like to reflect my impression.
Dior belongs already to one of my favorite houses, I prefer nevertheless mostly rather classically French coined smells. However, I was not only this Higher, but also its little brother, the Energy, until quite some time ago not so a term. The Energy version, however, fell through with me, too trivial and dreary I found him.
Now dear Fresh, before your heart slips into your pants and you can no longer read this post for excitement, up front: The Higher is for me better than his younger brother ;)
I can see why he's your signature.
1. He's very fresh, and from start to finish. The way you like it best.
2. He is light, transparent, clear, straightforward and likeable. He knows what he wants, is not intrusive, discreet and very pleasant.
3. The top note: I admit, this one is really great! The combination of citrus and this pear has what. Comes it very tangy and cheeky over and even un petit peu unique (I hope you can French :P).
At the same time, however, it becomes a tiny bit spicy as it goes on, and that makes the scent really good for me. Is it the rosemary? Really interesting! A certain spice - here rather tart-spicy - stands as I find so some fresh fragrances quite well and here it is really very successful.
Until the base, he keeps his overriding freshness, the citrus-pear-spice prelude steps somewhat in the background and makes room for another chord. Here he becomes namely for me slightly woody-pudgy, which I would attribute to the musk.
Regarding the endurance one could expect for a Dior fragrance vllt. more, because on my skin he holds about only 4 to max. 5h and a fragrance cloud he leaves only in the first hour. But this is rather a little cloud that does not want to attract further attention. A smaller gray "sillage mouse" so to speak. However, it should be noted that this is not the very first freshener that lacks staying power. This problem have, as is well known, not a few fresh citrus treasures. But be it so.
Personally, I see this Higher better kept in the spring and summer, because I suspect that he has outside in autumn and winter even more too little power to take it up with the cold (In closed rooms, of course, this looks different again). But on warmer days he would probably mMn very well to advantage.
So dear Freshy, overall I come to a good convincing rating of 8 points :) "High" he does not make me, but I like him already and I think he fits damn good to you and your distinctive collection ;)
For my part, it's probably not necessarily come to a flacon purchase, because I'm basically equipped for my perception more than good and broad. But this does not matter, because your signature is your signature, and that's what matters ;)
In this sense, continue to have a lot of fun with him! He is always beautiful. Come well into the new year, stay healthy and remember:
At the Higher no Freshy comes past ;)
And thank you to all the readers and have a great end of the year!
