Forest walk with unchaste thoughts
I can hardly believe that this fragrance composition should be based on only one ingredient; so multifaceted and voluminous comes Attaquer Le Soleil therefore. On the other hand, there is also an in itself coherent coherence of the aroma development, which is why everything was actually done right here with a simple, yet effective formula.

Allegorically, the perfume is based on a clear theme, which does not pay tribute to D.A.F. de Sade or his dubious, prosaic products, but evokes clear associations of a beautiful, mystical coniferous forest.
The note that holds the fragrance together as an omnipresent fixative is the labdanum of the cistus. Thus, the top note initially sounds of oily tree resin and palatable-sweet forest honey. Immediately, the invigorating coniferous aroma, followed by spicy herbs, takes on the heart notes, which then unfold warmly and consistently in balsamic amber. A natural, non-disturbing animalicism is definitely present in the background; however, it gives the fragrance a sensual toughness. Also implied incense is to be perceived.
After a longer development, a dignified cedar appears, expanding the forest spectrum with slightly rubbery, old wood. The previously almost overwhelming fragrance becomes delicate and cozy.

In search of the resin
Resin/cistus/incense - my winter favourites. Cozy, somewhere also "sacred" because they give you home, but at the same time somehow attract.

Montale Full Incense is the lightest incense on the market that lasts. "Fresh incense" so to speak.

When I had this one on my nose, though, it hit me: I'm looking for fresh, but animalic. Monochromatic, but deep. Smoky, but soapy. Attaquer le soleil is resinous/smoky, completely linear and minimally animalic at the same time, which shows me that resins and sweat are probably close. Sensational spray, freaky bottle, and a scent of sorts for incense/resin lovers. Develops with me hardly, but is really interesting.

I choose scents based on a craving in the morning that I have spontaneously after waking up. As if I had the fragrance for the day already in the nose. With this one, it was unfortunately jur 5x so last year. Would wish my nose to have it more often with this one though. Do not buy blindly, is already too own for it

Damn it ! I love it!
...I admit it....if I read all too often accurate comments of users about a fragrance... I am quickly hooked and MUST have it....(so far no mispurchases*lach*
DarkWinterCS has me with his commi...(thanks again for that)...and now I have the little "sadistic bastard" named Attaquer-le-soleil...
Touchdown! I'm inclined to claim that this fragrance could become my "signature" (with my large collection, it's really difficult to find a fragrance in the middle of the day *again-laugh*)
It unites everything I love about perfume : real uniqueness...not too pompous...a little fresh...incense notes(love it)...a certain "dirtiness"...paired with depth and spiciness...God!! ..I want to wrap myself up in leather and go dancing !!!!
Think that Attaquer smells like TomOfFinland from Etat Libre, should have smelled ...
"...toucha... toucha... touch me... I wanna fell diiirty..." (RockyHorrorPictureShow)
..Yep...as you can tell...I am thrilled...and maybe I will NOT shop for a new fragrance in the next months...because "de Sade" has completely caught me... Uaaaah...

Bad thoughts? Give me that!
Attaquer le Soleil, a fragrance that has haunted me since my early days on Parfumo. To this day I still don't know how I got on the side of this perfume. Again and again, almost every week, I went to the site and skimmed and internalized the comments and statements.

Inevitably the question arose in myself, do you want to test this piece of work ?

This question arises again and again with unknown scents, but I seldom had the urge to resist it, as well as the greed to get it under my nose. Because as a new perfume you read the comments without any ideas and in this case you don't know what to think about it.
On the one hand, it sounded so repulsive to create a fragrance with de Sade's background, which could be an olfactory derivative of his works. On the other hand, this was exactly the need to create something above the known personal scent strands.

At the first reading moments of my own fragrance perception, I had only the most pleasant perception of scents in mind. Yes, don't get too upset, rather play it safe and please everyone. The damage comes here in the forum all by itself. After a good 1.5 years I have turned my view by 180 degrees. It's not about pleasing anybody. It's more about pleasing myself (even if it sounds selfish) and putting on the scent that reflects me and makes a statement. I don't care if anyone is bothered by it and my colleagues in the office have to endure many a fragrance experiment. But that is exactly what I am and that is what I want to express.

The change went from mainly gourmand scents to the beginner's niche to my current point of spicy/oudig/ambery and also partly animal scents. So the time had come for me to test the fragrance that had accompanied me for a long time. Finally to hear this dirty thing, which already triggers repulsive and at the same time fascinating reactions at the thought of the 120 days of Sodom. Pure in the most horrible fantasies that a person in captivity and abstinence can only imagine.

So I sprayed. But as soon as you have dealt with even one spark with the background of the name-giving de Sade, the pictures automatically crackle in your head when you smell them. You try to get rid of them, but they are so firmly anchored that you feel a film playing in your head. Even with the most distant imagination, the scent creates an atmosphere and a powerful smell that can rob you of your sleep.
In the middle of the action and I would have loved to scream about the course of events. The book as perfume, every perversion in the nose, so repulsive, so fascinating. In between I had to take breaks to process all this. How can a fragrance smell like that ? How can a single specified fragrance cause such an explosion of variance, decadence and emotion ?

The scent reflects everything, even if you don't like it or if it suits you because of it. Smoke, resin, dirt, honey, lemon, smooth metal, damp walls, and yes, (I see like Terra) slight fecal notes. All the things that make the work stand out. And it doesn't interfere at any point.
Everything so perfectly interwoven, no disturbing nuances, no exuberant animalism. I want it to be exactly as it is.

The start is smoky with light citrus notes. No incense, but still so that one can hear smoke in its voluminous way. After some time, deeply erotic and resinous notes are added. It is an alternating bath of notes, in which every minute one component attracts more attention. If one were to assign a libertine of the book to each component, one could aptly attribute the orgies to the respective person.
But the great protagonist of the course is certainly the resinous-ambry note. This is alternately supported by the fruitiness, smoke and other warm accents.

The special feature is the perception of the scent. Because in the air it appears quite transparent with a great influence of citric. On the skin the warm resin dominates. Those who want to enjoy the spectacle will not get a massive durability and sillage that goes beyond any framework. These are mediocre representatives of this respect. You can enjoy everything for a good five hours before you have to take a break. Because even the strongest libertine cannot create a continuous orgy.

Be brave, dare to be brave, let your thoughts wander. Because this fragrance is and has something special. Let yourselves be enveloped in the thoughts of de Sade and let the dirty preferences of the human being run free
This fragrance will satisfy the shoots.

Too medicinal to me
It is very weird that i find a perfume which dislike me... But this is one of those! I really cant wear It! It doesnt smell good at all for me ???? the opening is like very strong unburnt incense with a herbal feeling, very medicinal, and then i can feel the cistus very strong. When i say strong i mean the smell because the projection is soft as in most of Eldo perfumes, but un this case is something good not to smell like a hippie shop without Windows 5 km around ???? the longevity is good but as i have said before It is more like an intense Air freshner for me. Too resknous and too medicinal!and totally lineal!

Attack!
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

Too much for my body! Too resinous and smoky for me. This is like the smell of a hippie store with no Windows. not an incense/cistus fan
