The Fashion File
So this is my first conscious chypre, or at least chypre-like scent. Of alone I would not have approached him. Aldehydes, patchouli and sage make me already from reading headache.
But since I got him lovingly to the heart, I also wanted to give him a chance.
He starts green and herbaceous and yes the aldehydes are noticeable there but at least not as strong and unpleasant as first assumed.
I don't really get it all apart at all. It is an interwoven fragrance reminiscent of old times. Slowly the scent settles into something suede-like and powdery-sweet at the same time. Reminds something of make up.
Well no time to play and quickly pulled the next file. In this case, it is about a self-proclaimed designer. Often you have to put yourself in other worlds, professions and circumstances. I read the business plan, which is unfortunately kept very short but was illustrated with many pictures of the collections.
As if through a veil I perceive excited murmuring, a certain bustle arises, the models slip out of the dresses to slide right back into the next. A small seamstress flits from one to another making final alterations and correcting the fit of the suede belts. The makeup artist powders off, reapplies lipstick and tweaks hairstyles. Hairspray, powder and make up fixer are in the air.
The emcee's voice lifts, the next song plays, and the girls are sent down the runway.
Quietly, a figure emerges from the background, smiling and looking proudly at the collection, the audience and your models.
To me, it smells very classic. Actually, I have no idea about classics, most of them I don't like, as I associate them with old ladies tippling (well strutting) across the Ku-Damm with your fiffi on your arm. It will probably never become my genre but this one is still quite pleasant. The longevity is good, the sillage perceptible, pleasant and not too intrusive. Towards the end, it falls apart a bit.
Ok, enough daydreaming, now refocus and get on with the numbers part. Oh no, no fragrance will help...
