filigree gold jewellery and valuable lace
For more than thirty years my life motto (inoculated by my mother!) was: "Just don't attract attention!"
I was really "small, harmless and shy" and would never have had the idea to do anything other than swim with the current, possibly in the wake of others to be invisible!
"How sad!" I think today!
My phase of "pupation" must have been pretty inconspicuous. The astonishment in my environment was great when the small, rather inconspicuous caterpillar became not only a butterfly, but, as my friend Karola always said: "a bird of paradise"!
I wouldn't have worn even one of the components of the base note of "Amber Mystique" at that time: I probably lacked the courage to do so!
Amber Mystique" is as fine as filigree gold jewellery and just as cuddly.
Nothing is loud or even cheeky here; everything is elegant and within a certain noblesse.
Just the prelude with black currant and raspberry nectar (why do I think of delicious jam?), skillfully peppered with pink pepper, is very flattering to the senses.
Ylang-Ylang already sets the first highlight here: golden light points shimmer in the fruity spice.
The aromas of various fragrant roses and jasmine underline the femininity of this fragrance composition.
These powerful floral scents blend smoothly with the entrée.
The result is a calmly flowing stream of fragrance; soothing - without any shallows, without any whirls!
However, before this melange can develop too much flowery-fruity sweetness, Patchouli appears and brings the first streaks of fragrant gold with it.
How wonderful this previous fragrance now harmonizes with a resinous-spicy incense.
Here once not from one of the strongest, dark families, but still very intense and pleasantly smoky.
This is the prelude to the sensual basis: all scents have been finely and easily combined here.
Amber's gold meets the herbal spice of Labdanum, the resin of the cistus roses.
I don't know if even today goats are driven through the bushes by their shepherds so that their resin settles in the beards and is then combed out and processed further.
I'd rather not imagine it either! A piece of a billy goat in a fragrance creation?
Well, Oud doesn't appear that powerful after all; but he is present and integrated into the fragrance rhythm in an extremely fitting way.
Leather is also "feminine" in doses and has sandalwood on a long leash as its scent partner; "Amber Mystique" is flattering and slightly erotic.
All these components are skillfully mixed once more before musk, skilfully dosed with a light hand, rounds off the fragrance.
If "Amber Mystique" appears for a time like the aforementioned filigree gold jewellery, this fragrance changes over time into a heavy, valuable lace - whether from Ghent or Burano.
This fragrance flatters the woman who wears it and emphasizes sensual yet elegant the eternal "mystery woman"!
Here not with a bang or a thunder roll; but more like a symphony by Haydn or Mozart!
The Sillage has been created with fine craftsmanship; the durability of this liquid gold is several hours.
Even with me "fish blood" a beauty unfolds which surrounds me flatteringly in the long run.
"Amber Mystique" doesn't look tired or even stale over time, but says goodbye to a light step full of grace.
The wearer will be remembered for a long time, even if she only tilts her head slightly while walking and doesn't shout: "Hello! I'm leaving now!"
Therefore this is a very feminine lady, who is even very suitable for everyday use.
As often as I wear powerful scents and sometimes even celebrate them, "Amber Mystique" is very likeable to me, especially in a more reserved way.
It is a fragrance that can gild a foggy, rainy day wonderfully and without much fuss.
And so welcome!
