Surprisingly totally mine...
I'm not really into flowery scents. I own them. I wear them. I don't love them. More like: "We haven't had flowers for a long time - can't hurt." I bought the malchite green as a opened bottle quite cheap (yes, sometimes I buy used bottles just because they are cheap) and I didn't expect too much. Something elegant for special work occasions, maybe.
Well- apparently I have a thing for flowers. At least certain ones. The malachite green is pompously floral, like jasmine soaked in cream. Much rounder than Alien (which I also like to wear often) and definitely not for the faint hearted. It smells okay from the bottle, but on my skin it does something magical and indescribable - that's why I don't spray it on clothes.
It is certainly not for everyone, can be perceived as too strong and lasts for 12+ hours on skin and probably months on clothes. But- it's special, unlike flower water- more like flower paste- so thick it gets into your nose. It has character! Warmth! Charm! And recognition value!

The king of flowers
And again a rating with over 9 points from me. Why do I always give away so many points?
Probably because I always get carried away to a rating when I am totally flashed by a fragrance.

So also here, with the fragrance creation from the house of Schorsch.

I would therefore like to apologize to the previous speakers in advance, because what is attributed to the fragrance here as a malus, makes the fragrance for me the most luxurious experience I have ever had in my fragrance history.

I won't go into the individual notes either, enough has already been written for that.

First of all, for those of you who do not yet know the fragrance, I would like to list my personal associations with the fragrance:

Creamy - White - Soft - Warm - Pompous - Floral - Sweet - Ripe - Aristocratic - Noble - Clean - Strong - Decadent - Graceful - Sublime - Superior - Unique - Sophisticated.

This is probably what Ludwig II of Bavaria would smell like. A fairytale prince who devotes himself to the muse in his castle garden. A conqueror who, after the battle he has won, slips into his finest and most exquisite clothes to take the daughter of his defeated arch-rival as his wife in a solemn ceremony accompanied by white flower arrangements. The sheikh who goes to his magnificent bathing temple after the falcon hunt. But also the Mafiosi, who in his spare time takes care of the family as a loving husband and father in the protection of his own four walls. The white knight fighting for his fair maiden. The minstrel named Walther von der Vogelweide. Louis XIV - the Sun King of France.

In short: The soft core of the (primordial) man - filled in a bottle.

Now I would like to address the points of criticism that are often levelled against the fragrance.

#1 "The smell is heavy, pompous and oppressive"
Absolutely! The air wafts creamy white. Just heavenly! Like a fluffy eiderdown quilt. Not too sweet and very natural.

#2 "The fragrance is for women only"
No way. Worn by a woman, the fragrance embodies pure, yet serious and mature femininity. In the man he brings out the graceful, calm and sublime side. The protective family man
#3 "pure white blood"
That's right. Someone who hates white bloods probably gets the lethal dose here. Nevertheless, I advise each of these people to at least try this scent. That's the way white-bloods should smell!

Remains to mention the accessories:

Durability: After showering still intensively perceptible.

Sillage: Two sprayers and Bon Jovi starts singing "Bed of Roses"
Flacon: pure luxury.

Did I mention that I have a new favorite scent?

Crushing Gemstone
Hello and welcome to a new comment from me, which you all have to read, as you are committed to it! Or is it? But you should!! D He he, so today we are talking about the Vert Malachite fragrance from the Armani Privé Collection.

Wait a minute, Vert Malachite? So green malachite? Malachite is green anyway, you'll say now, if you looked up two long minutes in Wikipedia like me! Yes, malachite is actually always green, but there is also a so-called red malachite on the market, which is only called red malachite, but the mineral is not a real malachite, but in reality jasper. Which is nice to look at, too. So, now you're a little smarter! :))

By the way, Armani tried to imitate his impressions olfactorily with this scent during his trip to Russia. It should be a fragrance for both sexes who want to live independently and according to their own rules, at least if you read the marketing text of it. Well, I tend to pay less attention to such marketing texts, because otherwise I would only be rolling my eyes, because every fragrance is always described as if it were the very best fragrance in the world (of course, why should the manufacturer also write that its fragrance is only mediocre or even bad?...). But I'm sure you all know that when you read such lyrics from time to time. You try to bring even the worst scent to the man (or woman), but if that succeeds is another question, because after all a scent is often tested before it is bought (blind buyer disregarded), and I am glad to have tested the scent here as well, because it starts nice, but in the end (for me personally) became unbearable...

The fragrance:
The fragrance begins with very strong neroli, intense jasmine and also strong (and unfortunately directly at the beginning sultry fragrant) ylang-ylang. However, the intensity of the ylang-ylang, or rather its sultriness, decreases a bit right after that, and hopefully it stays that way, because such sultry scents are really overwhelming (for me at least). But it still remains very flowery, because lilies are added and the whole scent smells very flowery-sweet because of the jasmine. The Neroli on the other hand is getting weaker and weaker, so that it can hardly be smelled in the base anymore.
For a while one smells mainly beautiful, sweet jasmine. But then, especially in the base, the fragrance becomes heavier and more humid. Neroli disappears completely and the jasmine also fades into the background, because now the really heavy, sultry and stuffy flower scents, especially the ylang-ylang, really hit the spot. So these become quite intense, dominate for the rest of the fragrance and smell, ... well, you know my opinion, not so great anymore, because the fragrance then very VERY overwhelming smells. If I have to be honest, I didn't hold out the base very long and even had to wash my arm again, because the oppressively sultry smell had only annoyed me...

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is strong, since one is wrapped by the intensive smell notes in a larger smell cloud, whereby one is to be smelled naturally very well. The scent lasts very long, that's what I think, because I washed the scent away from my arm later. This was so after six hours, after which the fragrance had still radiated quite intensely. I would therefore assume a shelf life of ten to twelve hours, if not more.

The bottle:
The bottle is rectangular, with the upper part slightly arching upwards. The entire bottle, including the label and the lid, which has a stony shape, has been kept in malachite green, with which one can also see the beautiful color transitions or gradients of the gemstone. All in all, a beautiful bottle rich in contrast.

Soo, Vert malachite would actually have been a nice scent. Although somewhat unspectacular, at least for a Privé fragrance, this is, as always, a matter of taste. But Vert Malachite became too stuffy in the end despite a nice beginning, a direction with scents that I really don't like at all. Of course all this is a matter of taste, but I simply don't like this stuffy scent. Oh and through all these flowers Vert Malachite is more a feminine fragrance than unisex.

It is best used in Siberia, where it is really cold and you could compensate the stuffy notes a bit... he he no :DD
However, the fragrance is actually only recommended on cold days in autumn and winter, as it should have a totally overwhelming effect on warmer days. But something tells me you ladies would probably use the scent on hot days. Because as the saying goes: "Women are crazy, perfumes on the other hand are brain-burning insane", or something like that :DD

Yes, despite the beautiful sweet jasmine at the beginning of the fragrance, this time I don't think that you crazy, uh... I mean that you ladies really smell to bite with,... no, on the contrary, I would rather go for the distance with such a fragrance on a woman!!! If you still like such scents and would like to use them, spray them rather discreetly so that they don't get on other people's nerves (I assume that this scent doesn't just seem stuffy to me).

There! That's it again. Sorry for calling you ladies crazy again, but I can't promise that I'll never do that again... :D
All have a nice evening, until then :)

Jasmine, and more jasmine but nothing more. I expected more uniqueness from a house like Armani. This one, unfortunately, is a pass.
