Ah, yes, honey. Also called "food of the gods" (not to be confused with... food of the gods! :D) by the ancient Egyptians and nowadays also known as "liquid gold", this food seems to please almost everybody, interestingly enough the ladies more than the gentlemen.
But the handling is actually more complicated than you think. Once thickly spread on bread, it lies on the slice of bread as a viscous and above all mobile mass. As soon as one holds the bread in a wrong angle, a part of the honey already makes itself out of the dust and flows down unhindered, what is specially so annoying because it is also so sticky that one could use it as super glue, specially if it falls on textiles, argh! D
If only it didn't taste so good! But also the scent is often very beautiful and it is used in many different kinds of fragrances. Whether as a pure, sweetish honey scent or as a spicy scent that takes some getting used to, as in the Angel scents from Mugler, there is actually something for every taste. Now I come to another honey scent, this time from Floris. And yes, I can spoil you right away: This scent also smells quite delicious!
The name is actually program, because you can smell sweetish tasty honey and oud right at the beginning, whereas the oud is a bit stronger. After that you soon smell the patchouli, which seems to go well with the oud.
Over time the oud weakens a little and then shines with the same intensity as the honey, so that you can smell the honey and the oud better.
By the way, the roses make the honey look like rose honey instead of, for example, blossom honey, which I would have preferred, but of course the smell is not bad!
Later on, the scent is still as described, but it seems as if the honey decreases more and more from the base, so that then the oud can be smelled more clearly than the sticky liquid. Musk is added, so that the scent remains (dark) sweetish.
In the very late base, however, the fragrance no longer smells of honey at all, but more of "normal" woody notes together with oud and with a now rather low sweetness.
The Sillage and the durability:
The Sillage is very good, you will certainly leave a good scent cloud for a while if you spray yourself strongly!
The shelf life is quite long and therefore lasts from morning to evening without weakening quickly.
The bottle! The bottle is rectangular, with the upper edges sloping slightly upwards towards the neck. It is filled with an amber-coloured fragrance liquid. The black label on the front has a thick, ornate gold rim, and the fragrance name and logos are also gold-plated. The cylindrical lid is also gold-plated, which looks like a small column and has the brand name written on it once again. A nice flacon that would have come across a little simpler without the label.
Hmmm, so I'm pretty sure that you ladies must like the scent quite a bit, if you also like honey. It smells good, has a nice charisma and therefore lasts a long time. But of course it's not for spring or summer, it's more of an autumn and winter scent.
Since it is already quite heavy, you should not exaggerate with the dosage, especially if you want to use the fragrance not for going out but also during the day. Otherwise, I think this scent belongs to the really well made honey scents, which is really worth a look, because it is well made, i.e. the honey is not bitingly spicy and also the oud is not oppressively strong as in some scents.
Well, what else can you say about honey? Well, there's this joke from the endless line of Chuck Norris jokes:
"Chuck Norris doesn't eat honey, he chews bees!"
Well, SO real guys eat honey :DD
Okay, that one might not have worked out so well... whatever. The main thing is that you don't let the honey drip into the carpet or something,... because you know that with toast or bread it always falls with the side of the topping on the floor :D
