The power of fine words
Prehistory in short: read comments here, flirted briefly with paradigm change (fundamental rejection of any sweetness in fragrances), immediately rejected, saw fragrance at TKMaxx and then bought it nevertheless. First, second, third test: Oh Gottele, oh no, oh dear. Too sweet. Way too. Bottle in OVP and everything together in the cupboard, at the very back.

And then Helena comes along and dedicates a gossamer-like pastel poem to the fragrance, in love and floating, made of spun sugar and spun words.

What else could I do but give the scent another chance?

The top note is and remains a challenge for my nose, love-pearl sweet, fluffy angora pulp cuddles in pink-pink, powdery sugar sweetness. The beautiful and freshly flowered bergamot I capture only with the nose directly on the skin, it has no distant effect.

I'm so sorry, lovers of muse poudrée, but the top note...

I see collectors of collector dolls in front of me, who arrange their porcelain children so carefully and with infinite love in lace-braided apartments around wooden cradles, with pastel bows and rosebud patterns. Just as the collector doll collector seems to me to be more of a sensitive, perhaps lonely, but not coarse woman, the top note is not coarse despite the overpowering sweetness. She's like the bows in the dolls' hair: Lovingly arranged and pastel coloured. Just way too much of it.

Now we have to wait, because very gradually, and this is actually a little bit magical, the scent starts to change: He's growing up. The sweetness becomes spicier, drier, the pink more antique, the love pearls become violet dragees. Over the next few hours, the cotton candy retreats to the second row, not that it ever gives up, but it now gives way to others, the vanilla flirts in the most delicate and endearing way with an airy powdery note, the fragrance becomes warmer, darker and velvety.

Thus the muse remains spicy-powdery vanilla creamy and dark sweet, long, persistent, very audible, until after many hours it dawns in soft vanilla spice and soft silvery musk powdery.

The power of words: Without Helena's delicate web of words I would not have given the fragrance a second chance. Certainly not
What remains: A fragrance for very few occasions, just for me alone, after a long and for me challenging run-up, finally cuddly and comforting, like lovingly homemade vanilla crescents.

S&H above average, price budget.

Muse in a dazzling robe
Pink bottle, violet and vanilla, all right! Oh no - that is definitely not a cute young girl scent.

What a great, multi-layered top note! There is nothing citric, the bergamot only adds a little freshness. Above the dark, spicy, malty and slightly smoky vanilla floats a light, spicy floral note. Violets? The bitter almond and sub-powdery powder smells more like heliotrope, even more like gardenia or frangipani with a little tonka bean.

A comparison with gardenia and frangipani scents like "Gardénia" by Robert Piguet, "Gardenia Royal" by Il Profvmo, "Kenzo Amour", "Attimo" by Salvatore Ferragamo or "Omnia Pink Sapphire" by Bvlgari would be interesting.

If the freshness is blown away after a while, the fragrance becomes more compact while retaining the other facets. With good sillage, the scent in the projection now appears round, powdery and airy, while it has something slightly biting up close. This sounds paradoxical and after deduction of points, but the distance effect is decisive, because nose on skin is not the normal case of perception.

This beautiful, lively impression lasts for hours. Gradually the floweriness is replaced by something woody, paired with a slightly animal musk. The wood called cedar is quite synthetic, but pleasant, and is quite oily and oudig. The scent becomes softer, darker and heavier and, still vanilla-spicy, has an oriental character. The Muse poudrée has developed into a seductive odalisque.

Conclusion: This perfume is by no means as simple as the harmless common ingredients, just five in number, let us assume. Muse poudrée is also not light (old) pink, rather mauve. The fragrance undergoes a beautiful development and is differentiated in each phase. The synthetic ingredients do not look striking, but sufficiently natural. The Sillage throughout good, the durability with about ten hours even very good. A really well made creation, inexpensive on top of that.

Even the bottle deserves attention. far from kitsch made of old pink milk glass without frills, tightly closing cap, good spray head. Slim, angular at the bottom and round at the top, it is stable and lies well in the hand, truly a hand flatterer.

Nefertiti recommends this beguiling perfume to all ladies with a weakness for the Orient without incense and spices.
