Hello and have a nice evening, folks. Today I will comment on the fragrance "The Dark Side" by Francesca Bianchi. Yes exactly, the dark side, and I'm 100% sure that this doesn't mean the burned side of a toast, but actually the dark side, which is the theme of the Star Wars movies again and again.
Hey he he, Star Wars is a topic you probably don't want to hear about, do you? Well, bad luck, I can really let off steam here now as already threatened in the title, mu ha ha ha ha :D
Well well,... apparently I can't fool you and have to admit that this fragrance has nothing to do with Star Wars in reality... *sigh* It's a fragrance that's supposed to express the darker side of the perfumer, so to speak. Of course, this does not mean anything reprehensible or even criminal, but rather a side that does not appear every day, something mysterious, something sensual, something intimate. All this suitably expressed with "dark scented scents"!
And originally the fragrance should even have a name like "Into Darkness" instead of The Dark Side.
Well, let's see how the scent smells, but I can't guarantee that I could mention a certain star war saga over and over again because of the scent name! D
The fragrance begins with beautiful resins, some oud and sweet notes (vanilla and amber, and then some honey), is soft and powdery and actually feels a bit "dark". Then also the spices come, whereby the smell also appears heavier. The spices have something of kitchen spices, but are difficult to identify individually.
Over time, the fragrance becomes softer as the resinous notes and vanilla become more intense, pulling the fragrance into a softer side.
By the way, there is very little oud and to be honest, you don't smell oud after the top note anymore (at least not me), instead you smell general woods, which is of course great. The spices make the smell slightly heavier, by the way also prevent that the smell becomes too sweetly, but to me the smell appears by the spices thereby every now and then somewhat dryer.
At the very end, the fragrance becomes a little softer again, even if you can still smell the spicy notes quite well. As I said, it still smells of spices, but the vanilla makes everything seem softer. And I would say that the spices of the late base are also good for the fragrance, because otherwise most fragrances always smell the same: Namely only pure vanilla, which is not the case here. This gives the fragrance a little more variety and depth.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The charisma is extremely good, you can smell the scent from a greater distance at one or at a smell. Sprayed a lot, it even fills the room for a while.
The shelf life is also extremely high, the fragrance can even last until the next morning depending on the dosage and is then still easily sniffed at the sprayed area!
With its simple, rectangular shape and the simple label on the front, the bottle basically looks just like thousands of other niche fragrances and is therefore nothing special or super great. It just looks nice, and I think that should do it.
So, the fragrance actually seems sensual and sexy, mysterious and mysterious. At least for the most part, because it smells a little too spicy every now and then and leaves a slightly dry impression, especially in the middle part. Nevertheless, the fragrance smells beautiful by and large and is, as described, really dark in its radiance, which is due to the woods, resins and a little oud. But at the same time it is also very soft and soft, and that despite the spices, so that it actually has something mysterious and erotic about it.
So for me it is definitely a fragrance for the evening, whether to go out, to cuddle or to... well,... you can imagine it! Best used in autumn and winter. From the smell unisex and in any case recommendable for all times, so test it quietly :)
Yes, The Dark Side is a great fragrance. The Dark Side.... yeah, I said I'd probably mention Star Wars again because of the scent name. No wonder the ladies don't fly at me with a nerd like me! *seeeufz* So I can keep talking about it, can't I? But don't "May the Force be with you" me, I don't like that saying somehow. And don't say, "Luke, I'm your father!" because this quote is absolutely absolutely wrong!" :DD
It's right to say, "No! I'm your father!"... argh, I'm such a neeeerd.... *sigh*
Be that as it may, you should run into this scent, then try it out, it might be worth it
