Yesterday the husband in the department store drew my attention to a bottle.
My Fifth Avenue.

I was happy about his nice gesture, because he has nothing to do with perfumes.

But I always like to try Arden fragrances, because they often offer good things at an acceptable price.
Fifth Avenue could score with me - would MY Fifth Avenue also become mine?

The price has been pleasant before.

But the scent didn't fit like a second skin.
The pyramid reads so nice.
All ingredients agree with me.

The husband looks at me expectantly - I look back asking questions.

Somehow My looks unround with a certain severity to sharpness.
I don't know which ingredient is responsible for it.

Normally I appreciate the Ardens for their easy going attitude, which makes them uncomplicated in a pleasant way.

The scent is not bad - just a little unsorted.
It does not seem to me to have been thought through and thus unfinished.

Oppa odda Omma ?is the name given to such products here in the district.

The husband pushes me to the CK shelf, where I immediately find something with Obsessed, because that speaks a clear language

My comment to this great fragrance - long overdue !
Hello dears ! As the title says, here's my long overdue comment on one of my favorite fragrances from Elizabeth Arden - a perfume and cosmetics brand that seems down-to-earth and rather reserved compared to other brands. Some of the fragrances' prices are ridiculously low. One reason, perhaps, why they don't get nearly as much reputation as they deserve. I think that this is a way to sell the fragrances below value.
Now for the scent. For some time now, I've not been of the opinion that all the perfumes you like suit you and that you should wear them. They have to suit the type. It has less to do with age than with character, appearance ... If I may take yours truly as an example: I like things simple and classic. I refuse piercings, I don't want tattoos in my life and I wouldn't dream of coloring my hair in any extreme color. I usually put my hair up. Flesh tunnels and other horrors are of course out of the question, one ear hole per earlobe is enough, two or more are already too much for me. Furthermore, I wear my fingernails short and at best with clear varnish. Make up yes, but no colourful eye shadow or bright red lipstick or even false eyelashes. I like feminine dresses and skirts, also jeans and blouses, but also casual - not careless - things. You get the picture ? Would a loud "screaming", sweet scent fit there ? I think not.
I go to work every day (well, not at the moment), I want to smell fresh and neat. For me the scent has to last for a whole working day if possible.
I find all these criteria in the wonderful fragrance My Fifth Avenue. I liked it very much from the beginning, I didn't need to try it a few times to know This is it! That's what I want It suits me
The fresh lemon and tangerine at the beginning, a soft jasmine-lotus note (the jasmine is reserved here), the fine musk and cedar wood finish. Violet leaf and ozone notes in between give a little spiciness or airiness. It is light, but with a relatively strong sillage (don't spray too much, I underestimated it in the beginning) and of a long-lasting nature - perfect. It is inconspicuously striking ... If that makes any sense ;-) Strikingly good, but in a rather inconspicuous way, I mean. He has class, but is by no means stuffy. In a word: Perfect. Perfect for me.

I carry a big name...
...was the name of a show my grandma liked to watch. A somewhat outdated guessing team had to guess the name of a celebrity, most of whom had already passed away. The celebrity was mostly presented by a mostly also older person, mostly related over five corners, who either hadn't achieved anything himself or stood in the shadow of his famous relative. It was a rather soporific show...

My fifth Avenue is unfortunately also in the shadow of his big brother. Those who got to know the fragrance in the nineties of the last century and have hopes for a new interpretation will experience a harsh final deception. Unfortunately I don't know the scent from back then, but the one that is very cheap today - and that's one of my special favorites in terms of flower scents.
And not only mine: Fifth Avenue is especially popular in the USA and a real evergreen. The fresh flower scent with the sweet Ylang Ylang, and the lime blossom is unmistakable. My Fifth Avenue has nothing in common with this fragrance except its name. He focuses on the trend of skin scents which should lay on the wearer like a second skin in order to increase the attractiveness. These could be the ozone notes. Whether or not this is true is a subject that has been discussed in a lively and ongoing manner.

But back to the fragrance: If you like Gabrielle from Chanel you might like this one too. While Gabrielle sprays the typical Chanel DNA in the beginning and later looks a bit old-fashioned, My fifth Avenue is powdery fresh with light citrus notes. Later, soft floral tones are added, which then merge into a slightly woody and slightly washy musky note. Fortunately, My fifth Avenue stays on the skin for about six hours and retains a certain freshness until the end. The overall impression is almost that of a high-end product but unfortunately only almost. The decisive kick is unfortunately missing. And Arden could do more...

Conclusion: My fifth Avenue is a modern, fresh, elegant and likeable fragrance for women who appreciate a more intimate fragrance. The bottle is very pretty and lies well in the hand. I would classify it as wearable all year round because, despite the citrus notes at the beginning, it is not a typical light summer scent. Unfortunately he was packed as a flanker and hoped for a larger group of buyers. That's a shame, because My fifth Avenue is an independent, quiet fragrance that deserves its own name and doesn't have to stand in the shadow of an aging relative.

New York, New York, strike two!
Hey, guys, how you doing? I hope you're all well! Anyway, here's another one of my comments. About a scent that I have to use to correct a little mistake of mine :D

When I wrote my commi to Elizabeth Arden's "5th Avenue" (EDP) a short time ago, I wrote that a lovely perfume company had asked me to comment on this fragrance. Unfortunately I had mixed up the scents, because she never said 5th Avenue EDP, but the scent "My Fifth Avenue", so this scent here. And when I published the commi for 5th Avenue, she was really bitching at me, so I have to correct the mistake!

Well, I don't remember if she really bitched, because there are so many perfumes here bitching at me or threatening to behead me that I'm already losing track :D Which is strange, because I don't write so many raunchy things or insult you like I used to, right? But of course you are never satisfied and don't even realize that I can be nice sometimes, you are all stupid! DD

But okay, let's get to the scent. Again, of course, New York is the center of attention, or more precisely the famous (and expensive) street 5th Avenue. More than ten fragrances by Elizabeth Arden have been released for this location, so it's no wonder that I mixed up the scents! Apart from that, as already written at that time, the aim here is to capture the essence of this New York street with all its luxury, charisma, beauty, elegance and, as one often and gladly expresses with such things, with all its energy (... energy... the only thing missing is that it is said that the crackling energy is present and felt everywhere... just like the power in Star Wars, mu ha ha ha ha :DDD).

Okay, enough chatter. I'm going to make sure I've got the right scent in my hands and spray it on!

The smell:
The fragrance begins citric with lemons and tangerines. But also flowery scents seem to be present from the very beginning. I'm guessing violets, as I perceive their soft and slightly powdery scent, as well as lotus. Yes, I don't know much about plants, but I think I recognize the lotus because it was also contained in the Rituals Tam Dao products I used to use and therefore the scent seems so familiar to me (so in case you were wondering where I know lotus from... :D). But the lotus scent is a bit weaker here, no matter, it still smells nice. Jasmine gives off its nice sweetness and smells more authentic here than in many other scents, where Jasmine can sometimes radiate too much sweetness (in general I find that Jasmine can sometimes radiate quite differently, or is it just me?)
In any case it remains fresh and citric, whereby the citric now comes more from the mandarin. To be exact, I would even say more "tangerine peel", because the scent smells like a slightly bitter peel (from the inside, i.e. when you have peeled the fruit). The sweetish scent of jasmine, which was not very strong anyway, is more and more replaced by the "darker" sweetness of musk. In the background there is a slightly fruity scent, which could be a pear, but I have to admit that I would never have come up with the pear if I hadn't read that there should be pears in here, too.
A little later, the fragrance becomes much more floral, with the scent of blooming flowers, while the citrus notes slowly disappear. What exactly you smell now, well, I can't describe it very well, but I would still say jasmine, which now starts to smell more intense again. Because of the floral notes, which smell more intense, the scent gets a slightly sultry note (for you ladies this might be different and more pleasing, it's just my perception of floral scents), at least until the amber/musk mix brings a slight sweetness. Nevertheless, I find the base a bit simple, but still nice.
Only very late, i.e. in the late base (after a few hours) the scent starts to smell a little suffocatingly pure for flowers, which I then like less.

The Sillage and the durability:
The Sillage is okay and is in the average range. So it can be smelled, if you don't stand too far away. I also liked the shelf life of about eight hours.

The bottle! The bottle is rectangular and tall. At first glance, it may look like a normal, tall standard bottle, but it was deliberately designed to be tall, as it is meant to remind us of the high-rise buildings in New York. A nice bottle, simple but good.

Conclusion:
Soo, good, with that I have now tested the right scent. Just check the database on Parfumo to see if it's the right scent and... ho ho,... there are apparently 352 scents with "5th Avenue" in the name... argh :D But since I got the sample or bottling from the Parfuma itself, I assume that it was the right scent :))

Anyway, I liked the smell already. It's fresh and sweet and floral. I like the fact that the citric scents don't fade away too quickly and the floral scents don't get stuffy too quickly. Only the base is a little bit unusual, because it still smells nice, but for me it looks like a (well done) 0815 floral scent. If you don't like that, you can still spray yourself, because the top note and the middle part smell really good. I just don't like the late base, because the scent was a bit too stuffy, which I don't like at all with such scents.

Apart from that the fragrance is fresh, as I said, and fits very well now into the summer, as a nice day scent. You can test it, as it is a daily companion that always goes. A fast, uncomplicated scent, which smells nice and where you don't have to think about it for a long time, if you don't know what to spray on :)

Well, that's it. Have a good evening to you all, and see you later :)

Flowery, discreet, pleasant
Today tested in the drugstore and I think M5A is a really nice, well-groomed fragrance that can be used anywhere and at any time.
Classification of the top note (with the help of the fragrance pyramid) Ozonic notes, yes, that's very good. Heart notes : Lotus and jasmine, find the lotus triumphs over the jasmine, so the fragrance is not too sweet but looks nice and clean. Base slightly woody, what exactly, my nose is simply too little trained for that.
The second fragrance I tested again today was Tiffany. My little daughter accompanied me and I gave her both hands to sniff. Which one's better? The one that smells like good flowers, the other one's angry. The good flowers were My 5th Avenue.
Shelf life at me: 5 hours, Sillage rather decent

I'm sure some will complain that the recognition value is totally missing in contrast to the legendary Ur- 5th Avenue, but nowadays I think it's quite difficult in the mainstream sector to create a fragrance with recognition value for the taste of the masses, considering how many new releases there are every year.
