Aromatherapy
Florascent is a German company with headquarters in Karlsruhe. Besides perfumery, they also offer some products in the field of aromatherapy. Therapy sprays with names like "Headache Master" or "Never Sleepless" make me smile at first, but whoever has studied the effects of certain scents on our soul, will perhaps also find something in the chakra scents that are also offered.

The first fragrance from Florascent that I tested was Nuoro. When I look at my notes from that time, they talk about sauna infusion. Pleasant to smell but as a fragrance? Of course it didn't take long until I came across quartzazate and both the scents and the few statements about the fragrance made me sit up and take notice: Frankincense (I love that stuff), coniferous wood, resins and all that in a green robe. That can only be good.

I am not actually a blind buyer, but the risk with a 30ml bottle seemed manageable to me. The name bottle is very flattering. Let's talk about a glass container with a nebulizer. If you are looking for an appealing feel, you are in the wrong place.

Quartzazate starts sharp and green. Camphor immediately comes to my mind, accompanied by a fresh, resinous and ethereal coniferous wood. The combination of mint, which probably caused my camphor association, and the allspice, which provides a good deal of peppery pungency, actually gives rise to thoughts of aromatherapy. Anyway, the nose is clear for now.

Incense is neither smoky here, nor do thoughts of places of worship arise. Rather, he does his service here in the usual way, by lifting the whole thing to a loosened and airy level, bringing a little transparency to the fragrance.

Ouarzazate is the capital of the province of the same name in southern Morocco. Florascent advertises the fragrance with a walk in the cool medina (North African term for the old town) of Ouarzazate. Immediately, images of cities built of clay with windows the size of an embrasure appear, picturesquely situated in the middle of the High Atlas and Anti Atlas Mountains. Scatter a few palm trees. The last green oases before the Sahara devours everything in the sand.

The stupid thing is that quartzazate is not an oriental fragrance at all and associations with the lively markets of Morocco with all their unusual scent impressions may not even arise. It remains primarily (pale) green, resinous and coniferous. The mint provides an amazingly long time for a fresh impact that makes the fragrance wearable for almost every season.

I like the scent, although after wearing it several times, disillusionment sets in. The aromatherapy and sauna thoughts are not to be dismissed even with this fragrance. That might make him a little bulky in everyday life.

Because one thing Quarzazate is for sure: distinctive and memorable. Thus, it could involuntarily become a signature scent if used frequently and regularly. Maybe not for you, but definitely for your environment.
