From the life of a shampoo sniffer
The love for beautiful fragrances has accompanied me since my earliest childhood. Back when descriptive bottles of fine perfumes were still far away, I found another way to satisfy my growing desire for beautiful fragrances. The solution was called: Herbal Essences. Yes, the shampoo brand that made women scream with happiness in the shower. At least, if you can believe the ads. I too was enchanted by the soft tinted gels, loved to open the cap every now and then and just sniff the fruity, floral and fresh scents. The typical scent of gel-like shampoo textures. While the creamy and milky ones always smelled of "care", it was the "transparent" softly tinted gels whose fragrance meant pure summer feeling for me. The same applies to shower gels, by the way. Whereby more in this category often the care scents are more pleasing. Very well then. Why am I talking about shampoos at all ? In a perfume forum.
The answer is easy: L'Impératrice is the fragrance of my childhood, captured in a pastel pink perfume. The scent of a wonderfully fruity and fresh shampoo. Clean, sophisticated, pleasantly fruity, discreetly floral and not too sweet. Melon and kiwi determine the fragrance - tangy and fruity fresh, embedded in a woody base and a few delicate flowers. I do not perceive a fragrance on my skin. With time, the fragrance simply weakens until only a delicate woody touch remains on the skin. The shelf life on clothing is a solid 5-6 hours. On the skin 4. the sillage is very close to the skin, but the scent is still noticeable.
"L'Impératrice" is such a wonderfully uncomplicated fragrance. One should neither expect an explosion of spices nor a play of unique scent chords. Just a wonderful good-humoured fragrance that is also wonderfully popular with your fellow men. It has already brought me many compliments. I love him too. And this although my relationship with fruity perfumes is a rather difficult one. I have often noticed- If there is a disturbing note in a fragrance that makes me feel uncomfortable or even nauseous, then it is usually a fruit. Be it the currant in "Sì" or the plum in "Bottega Venneta". Fruity chords can quickly slide into the unpleasantly sour and rotten. Especially if the perfume is rather heavy. This is not the case with this fragrance - it smells fruity, fresh and clear. Nothing disturbs here. The "3" is one of my favourite spring and summer scents for everyday life, which takes me on a fragrance journey through childhood again and again. So beautiful
