Summer meadow at the edge of the forest
I'm an ISENSÉ ULTRAMARINE fan.
As far as the ISENSÉ is concerned, I always wanted to test it, because it gets super grades throughout. But getting it is a bit like getting a 6 in the lottery. Even in relevant online auction markets it is a rarity and - if ever offered - changes its owner for expensive money. I recently shot 50 ml EdT for 70.00 euros. That's what I call good deal!
Whether there are differences between relaunch and vintage, I cannot judge. The vintage scent is almost impossible to get anymore.
Well, the fragrance is unique, not from this world and was apparently created for something special. It stands out from all the Douglas standard fuel EXTREM. You'd think it was literally created a quarter of a century ago. Because he has absolutely nothing of the flanker mainstream and the hyped everyday and advertising fragrances a´la Sauvage, Acqua di Giò, BOSS Bottled. JOOP! Jump and what they're all called... May they also have a right to exist (at least Sauvage) but, Fragrances for the Masses are not for me.
...seems to me supernatural, sensual, dreamy.
He's so unisex to me. Because he is so feminine that women could wear him well, even should. If I smelled him on a woman (which is as likely as a 6 in the lottery) I'd go after her - I think. I'm going to try it out on my own tonight...
...result is comming soon!
who wears ISENSÉ, is between 30 and 40, bright (e.g. blond), youthful type, playful, sensual, childish (Lolita) and jumps like a little girl in summer through a field with meadow flowers. She drives FIAT 500 or Mini and has a dog.
who wears ISENSÉ, is around 40, sporty, individualist, gentleman, funny, charming, gourmet, bon vivant and definitely doesn't drive a VW Passat.
Fresh floral and intense, a hint of citrus fruit. Bang: Mandarin! I'll say. But it's not sweet enough for mandarins. Peng Black Johanna! Yeah, tangerine mixed with blackcurrant do it pretty well. Basil? Maybe he was wrong in the test tube. I don't notice any basil at all.
What a top note: 10 points
I can't smell anything of my magnolia at the moment (winter), I pick it up in summer and have a look. I don't have magnolia in my nose right now either, so I don't know. But what is mastic shrub, please? Google: Wild pistachio, aha. Yeah, it could be - I don't know. I'm overwhelmed! Iris and lily of the valley are right - after all, they are meadow flowers. I guess the heart note is Givenchy's secret. Let's just agree on
Wonderful summer flower meadow.
What a heart note: 10 points:
Indeed, there is something spicy in this sea of flowers. The closer you get to the base, the spicier it becomes - you walk out of the field into the coniferous forest. Tannenbalsam, I would never have thought of that, but yes - it could be. With the base comes seasoning and a little (fir) wood. He keeps his sensual character nevertheless or perhaps just because of it.
Basis: 9 points
Shelf life: all day long, above average and clearly perceptible to the end - a fragrance that won't tip over!
Silage: discreetly perceptible, reserved, diplomatic, charming and yet present. In the base only very close - perfect
Flacon: sh... no matter, the relaunch flacon is quite good, lies well in the hand (100 ml even better al 50 ml, I know it from UM), the war´s. It's just from the '90s. Guites mean halt.
Isensé, you are my goddess! Thank you Givenchy for this masterpiece and shame on you that you set it.
One of my TOP10
