Crystal Veil
The currant is located exactly in the middle between the berry and the green. The balance is such that both the prickiness of the fruit and the carpet foaminess of the green are cut off. A generous layer of sugar does the rest to ensure that the fragrance does not bite. But it is by no means banal, because the sweetness is juxtaposed with a fresh green. If this is a candy, it is of Elysian quality, far exceeding the capacity of any candy. Yes, the first few minutes can be a pleasure even for those who generally have little to do with gourmandizität.

Similarly excellent is the use of soft vanilla, which despite the sugary environment does not become too sweet overall - although it does not show the dark, bitter, almost smoky potential that sometimes surges up in other natural fragrances.

After barely more than two hours the currant is practically gone and our gently sugary vanilla reigns. In the later morning, it touches the border to too much, only a strangely crystalline veil holds up an airy breath with great perseverance. In the course of the afternoon, the fruit's contribution gently swells up again, so that the fragrance finally returns in a wide arc to the vicinity of the noble over-sweet of the opening. The way from 'La Cautiva' is therefore a truly round thing.

The musk prominently placed in the data (also with the manufacturer) behaves - fortunately, I think - the whole day over enigmatically. Only in the evening it is better noticeable, when everything fades out slowly and quietly anyway.

I'd like to thank the robins for rehearsing.

Sweet and tangy delicacy for the beauties of Buenos Aires
First vanilla cream with berries, then tangy-fruity, and always fuller and darker. Delicious. Really, I do. And every woman in Argentina wants to smell seductive! Like here after a sweet-tart fruit, a delicious treat from the sweet pastry shops of Buenos Aires.

And somehow everything fits: the Argentine man (and connoisseur, but who isn't there) calls out to the ladies on the street. Like "Caramello!", "Bonbon!", "Que dulcura!" (What a candy!). "Que rica" (how tasty) is, however, almost insinuating.... But at least? he proves his good taste!
The ladies, on the other hand, expect such shouts. If they don't come, it's a sure sign of a serious mistake in today's morning toilet.

Crème Cassis Brûlée
Currants don't always work. Scratchy, sweaty, sour, ... for those who want to experience them in an authentic and pleasant way, the "Malena" offered by Fueguia is recommended.

La Cautiva is a completely different pavement and clearly gourmand terrain. Fruity-soft, almost some chewing gum sweetness in the beginning. Slightly sour, but no more than a rhubarb sprinkling buried under pudding. Harmoniously round and above all ... delicious! In the course of the hours, a note of caramel fired with flame fires fantasies with crème brûlée. Some malt, or toffee in places. A perfume dessert that does not slip through the currant into the incompatible sweetness. Tastes!

But La Cautiva doesn't just want to be dessert, because the prisoner who beguiled the Indian survived almost three days with me, including showers. I confirm Fröschlein's comment on the good durability, almost creepily good performance for a natural fragrance.

For me, gourmands often fall into the category "I really like to smell them, but I don't wear them very often and get tired of them very quickly". La Cautiva I would also rather classify in the feminine corner. Nevertheless, if I had a bottling plant in my house, I would want to carry it from time to time. Or smell of someone nice who can be close to me. Tastes good!
