'Beverly Hills' - what a fragrance!
A short sprayer and not only the wearer, the whole room was shrouded by it.
With the first sprayer, peach and apricot were discharged in all their fruity fullness. Bergamot and orange blossom, gave this prelude, still the, somewhat flowery, freshness.
Plenty of time, but this scent didn't take itself, with the foreplay. A whole basket full of flowers and blossoms followed this prelude. A sweet, flowery interlude with a slight wood note.
Well done The fragrance actually gave itself a touch of pause here. Breathed out - more!
Now the fine tuning of this fragrance complex took place. Oak moss combined with the slightly citric note of bergamot. Amber and musk freshened up the, but very strong, flower complex a little. Patchouli and Amber gave him a certain 'grounding'. Camomile, wood notes and vanilla rounded off the nose experience. The cedar made sure that the sweetness was kept a little in check. But if she doesn't quite. ... and ... The green one was there!
After a short time, the fragrance introduced itself in its perfection. Impressive Unruly!
In the 80s and 90s, a fragrance that fitted very well into that time. Long durability and a silage that was already looking for its equal at that time.
When I think back today to the scents of that time, it was a kind of attack and defense. Almost everyone wore one of those strong scents, around with them. Probably with the intention of attracting attention and also to defend oneself against the scent attack of the other person. Everyone got a little stuck in their own scent. When I wore my then favorite Davidoff, hardly anything penetrated through this cloud to me. Only very slight nuances arrived. Although the 'attacker' certainly had similarly strong scent weapons.
A strong disarmament has taken place here in recent years.
If I rate this fragrance from the year 1981, until about the middle of the 90s, I would have to say, in spite of the changed taste of the time, it comes off too badly here
However, the fragrance has changed and probably adapted to the taste of the time. He used to have what I used to call green. Get away! The silage was also corrected downwards. Shelf life?
He also left the perfumeries and found refuge in the drugstores.
Why I come to 'Beverly Hills' today?
This morning in Hamburg, it's harbour birthday. I had something to do in town. Due to the expected traffic, I had left the car and used the public transport.
I had to cross the main station. A scent collection of fried sausage, kebab, bakery products and and & ... blew around my nose. Unenthusiastic, a group of girls carrying a scent of perfumed sunscreen probably crossed 'Sun'.
Then there he was, all of a sudden, a scent - a real scent trail. Beverly Hills' from the time when the fragrance was still allowed to wear that name with Stoz, 'The Green'! Beautiful memories from past times, immediately took over my thoughts.
I followed this trail, because of the concentration of scent in front of my nose, I guessed five to ten seconds ahead, maybe a little more *), because I had a very big question: Was he really?
At the end of the search, I met a woman. About mid-fifties. The age of the wearer fit.
I looked at her and my gaze was reciprocated. Smile, make a friendly impression...
I have a question ... my nose has ... is in the air ...
"Yes," she said, "I discovered it two weeks ago when we moved to Hamburg. I put it on for the first time today. I didn't get the impression that he had tilted, and if you perceive him like that now, then he's probably okay. Twenty-five years I must have had it by now. At that time I had bought three bottles and then from the middle of the 90s it went in the direction of aquatic fragrances. I wore other scents and simply forgot 'Beverly Hills'."
He still exists, the real one!
When we broke up, two events waited to happen.
First of all, I missed my train
Second, we had exchanged communication data...
Maybe with three, there's one about...
Now that I had it in my nose again today, my assessment refers to the old 'grayish' scent. With today's scent, I'd make deductions in the D, H, and S grades.
*) For those who don't believe it, this fragrance stays in the air! I heard it again today.
