Greatly helpful Review    29
This morning at half past six I did the work test and poured a little Attaquer Le Soleil into my neckline (I have a sample you can't spray with). At first the projection itself of such homeopathic quantities is quite strong. I smelled like cistus already. Even for me, that was on the verge of what was feasible in the morning. I always had to think about the cough drops you might be too weak for. And just got the hang of it. The patients didn't complain, though. After breakfast (at 10am) the projection was already lower, I would have had to do more, but I simply don't have time at work. After the work (14 o'clock) nothing was to be noticed more, however, I cannot stick my nose also into the cutout.

The night before Attaquer Le Soleil had cast a spell over me. The fragrance itself is smoky and resinous and has a calming, mood-lifting and homely effect. Not at all animalistic. Totally asexual. I also understood the official website to mean that Quentin Bisch wanted to free himself from his cistus obsession with this creation. Today we attack the sun, do what is considered to be impossible and totally beat the roses.

Yeah, I'm a very naive person. But at least I read something about the Marquis de Sade (Justine) and can't find the contents of that book in this perfume. Marquis de Sade in the title is simply the usual EldO marketing.

In the future, I'll wear Attaquer Le Soleil after breakfast. In my spare time and at night. When I think of "sport" in connection with this perfume, its name gives me very wrong ideas about what kind of sport to do with it, so I don't think about it any further.

Attaquer Le Soleil is in my opinion equally suitable for males and females and, apart from the pervert-hot midsummer, probably wearable in any season of the year

Let's burn the observatory down!
Attaquer Le Soleil! This is French for "Attack the sun" and also the name of this fragrance here. Admittedly, in the current heat wave that has been raging in Germany (and some other European countries) for weeks now, some people have certainly wished that the sun would disappear, or that the heat would make you so angry with the sun that you would have liked to attack it if it had been possible.

But the sun can't help it that it was so hot here, because it has to do with the climate and so on, where mankind itself is to a large extent to blame! Just to say that the sun is to blame for the heat is like with the Simpsons, where their town Springfield is almost hit by a meteorite (but at the end the thing burns in the atmosphere) and then in a great scene the makers of this series allude damn funny to the general stupidity of the people, where the people blame the observatory for the near catastrophe because it discovered the meteorite. And, fittingly, one of the Springfielders finally shouts: "Let's burn down the observatory so something like this can never happen again!" :DD
So one assumes that one never has to fear meteorites again if one torches the observatory! Simple logic, isn't it? D

Yes yes, that could be transferred into reality, because to be honest... People can often really, REALLY be stupid *sigh* :DD
Therefore, I also think that if it were possible to attack the sun, some people would have done it long ago, he he!

The fragrance:
The scent begins somehow sweet, but also somehow medical. The scent also seems to me like a short carnation, which in combination with the medical scent reminds me of dental products. However, the medical scent does not last long, so that the scent begins to smell "normal". It soon becomes more and more resinous and warmer and also exudes a rather dry, but not stuffy, flowery scent.
A little later the resinous notes become stronger, so that the fragrance loses the dry aura just mentioned and becomes warmer and softer. The sweetness of the fragrance now reminds a little of musk, the resinous has something of incense. Much later one smells best only the resinous smells, while the musk-like sweetness becomes clearly weaker.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is good, so that the scent can be smelled well at a normal distance. No firecracker, but also not necessarily a scent, which you would have to get very close to to smell it in others.
The shelf life is quite good as it lasts longer than ten hours.

The bottle:
The bottle is rectangular and simple in itself, if it weren't for the round label stuck to one of the front corners, which occupies two sides of the bottle. Instead of the usual red-white-blue circle, reminiscent of the cockade of the French Air Force, you see here a portrait of Marquis de Sade, who had written pornographic novels (and no, I don't know any of his works... :D), with which Etat Libre underline their provocative company policy. It's okay, but without the round label the bottle would have been too simple.

Hmm... so for this brand to be so provocative, I find the fragrance itself quite harmless, and frankly quite simple. Okay, it doesn't smell bad, that's always the main thing then, but I didn't notice him unusually.

He's not a scent now that makes me feel like I'm attacking the sun. Or to mutate into a sadist, if by "attacking the sun" something (sexual??) should be meant (the term sadism was derived from Marquis de Sade's name!). It's just a scent that might be beguiling because of the musk-like scent, but doesn't awaken sadistic desires in me :D
But I'm not sure with you... ne, don't try this scent when I'm near you, aaargh :D

I think, by the way, that you can't fix the fragrance on a certain season, so it's an all-rounder for me. It can be used during the day as well as in the evening (but more in the evening) and can be worth a test, especially if you like musk, as well as resinous scents
