Yeah, summer's here. If you take a look at the heat waves of the last days, you might think that summer has arrived faster this year than usual. Which in turn means that you probably have long since thought about what you could wear in summer. Scented!
While here some people go crazy because of the heat and get their very heavy scents out with intense, gourmandic and/or oriental scents to affect the whole environment (so according to the motto "The heat kills me, but I'm not going to ruin it alone, because I'm taking you all with me!püh,... always these psychopaths :D), there are others who pull out rather fresh, loose fragrances that simply convey a pleasant feeling of freshness (but of course only after they have created the 1982th thread in the forum with the name "What do you wear this year in summer?" :D).
But there are also fragrances that can be worn very well without appearing fresh and sparkling. They don't smell heavy either and are also suitable for hot days, when you want to smell good elegantly, because it is not always easy to wear a scent on hot days for a longer time that is also well received by others despite the heat. Because what is the motto of Parfumo here? Exactly -> "Anyone can stink, but you have to learn how to smell good!" :DD
Hey hey, and this scent here is an absolutely great scent that you should have a look at. Well well, and if you've looked at him long enough, then maybe you should spray him on for a test :D
The fragrance begins with the indicated bitter oranges. Even if the fragrance doesn't start lively, it is still fresh and you can smell the beautiful, bitter oranges, which smell just like the slightly bitter peels of these fruits. But there is also a light, dry fragrance. Something straw-like. Strawflowers? Hay? Wheat and barley? Well, something like that. It smells like walking on dry meadows in summer and smelling the sun-roasted flowers in the fields.
In the background there is a spicy note that almost smells like black pepper, but it is neither intense nor really recognizable, but you simply notice that there is something peppery and spicy in it.
The dry, hay-like feeling rises, but smells really wonderful with the oranges.
Well, actually, it's going to be such a long time now. The oranges get a little softer, which means that they lose a little of their bitter notes, which I don't find bad, because the oranges always have a good fragrance and fortunately they are not so weak.
From the base a small, earthy vetiver note is added, which goes wonderfully with the hay notes.
But for the later base the orange scents are almost completely gone, so that the scent then only smells of hay and vetiver and therefore looks quite dry. It's still okay, but I would spray from here now...
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage has become quite good for a summer scent. This does not mean that it can be smelled well from a greater distance or that a huge scent cloud is left behind, but it can still be perceived well at a normal distance, and this constantly over several hours.
Hm, the shelf life is over ten hours, but after six hours or so the scent is very weak on the skin and is then close to the body.
As with most niche fragrances, the bottle is rather simple. It is actually only cylindrical, wrapped with a black label showing the brand name and the name of the fragrance. The lid is black and cylindrical and the initials of the brand name are printed on it in white as a logo. It's okay, but it's also quite simple.
Well, Bigarade Concentrée is not a fragrance to refresh yourself with in summer, as the citric scents are not lively here. But it is a fragrance with which one feels comfortable in summer and which smells good even on very hot days and therefore should not disturb anyone, no, it should even arrive well if others notice that you can smell pleasant even at over 30 degrees.
The scent also gives you a feeling of holiday or summer in general. When you perceive the scent, you quickly feel like you're in a meadow on a sunny day. It's hot there, really hot, so every step you take is exhausting in itself. But one does this nevertheless gladly, since the weather is beautiful and such a hike on a field can be super beautiful. One perceives many dry-sun scents. There are, for example, the various flowers that have been roasted by the sun and appear dry, as if they could fall into dust when touched. Then, one has the great landscape in front of one's eyes, that can be especially examined on holiday, if one also goes for a little hiking somewhere there. Sometimes it is possible to combine this with the sea or the beach, as in the surrounding area, there are often some great small hiking trails in the forest, even if the areas near the coast should be less dry than further inland. And of course the distinctive chirping of the crickets should not be missing. Oh yes, don't forget... water as food :D
Ooooooh... now I'd like to take a little vacation somewhere. But don't underestimate the sun and wear a hat, people. In this country, perhaps smiled at, you can wear all sorts of headwear on holiday, whether straw hat (I must try it out) or tropical helmet, all these "things" increase the "arrived on holiday" feeling, so that you can enjoy the holiday even more :)
And then, fitting to it, occasionally apply a fragrance like this one, well, then the day is perfect! :)
