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 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 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
