Let the biter kiss you :D
Today I come to one of the new fragrances from Guerlain that came out this year: Baiser de Russie. I know that meringue is not pronounced like biter (although I'm afraid I can do everything by now...), which might make you think of the biter from the zombie series The Walking Dead :D

On the other hand the biter was also a very well-known opponent from the James Bond movies, who could even bite through steel ropes and scent bottles (no!). Although he has only appeared in two films, he has probably remained in the memory of the audience like no other.

In reality, Baiser, which is actually pronounced in a way similar to "Bäseee" or something like that, is a meringue made from sugared egg white, which I probably haven't eaten myself for a long time. However, I loved it as a child and probably drove my parents into madness, because they didn't really like this pastry and I distributed many crumbs on the floor by my nibbling,... oh what were those still for wonderful times, he he he :D

The fragrance should be, as far as I know, a kind of "remake" of Guerlains Une Ville, Un Parfum - Moscov, but unfortunately I don't know the Moscov fragrance from this collection, so I can't compare it with it. But no matter, let's see how the scent smells here!

The fragrance:
Hm, at the beginning I smell sweetly powdery scents, which actually remind me a little of meringue (at least I think...), that must be the interplay of the generally sweet notes like caramel and jasmine. There is a bergamot to sniff out in the background, but you have to smell it here to be able to spot this citric fruit. A little plum is present, besides, the smell seems to be quite slightly resinous, whether this is however at the indicated pine needles, I cannot say.
The caramel or the sweetish notes in general become stronger a little later, and I smell floral notes that I cannot determine.
Vanilla and tonka bean are now added to the base. This gives the fragrance a powdery sweetness and... oh you know how vanilla smells and so :D So it stays nice with a very weak, fruity touch (still the plum) in the background.
As you can imagine, much later, as is so often the case, the scent only smells of vanilla :D (I don't mean that negatively, of course, because it smells good, but many scents smell quite similar in the late base).

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The fragrance starts off reasonably well, but the Sillage clearly decreases in less than 30 minutes, so that I only feel the charisma mediocre. It will smell next to you, but it could hardly be perceived at further distances.
The shelf life is mediocre, which means that the fragrance can be smelled on the skin for between six and eight hours, depending on the dosage.

The bottle:
The flacon is one of these beautiful bee flacons where bee motifs have been worked into the glass. It is filled with a greenish scented liquid, which makes the green ribbon on the neck of the bottle a perfect match. On the front there is a rectangular recess with an arched "roof" in which a gold-plated label has been embedded. As usual, a very nice bottle.

Soo, the scent has... as in most cases, become "Guerlain-gewohnt-gut" (you could almost abbreviate that with "ggg", if only it wouldn't suggest a laughing fit in the internet language :D).

The (dark) sweet scents smell nice, the scent is pleasant, but despite the sweetness not very intense strong or overwhelming, so that it is not only a scent for autumn, but you can also use it in spring. Whether during the day or in the evening it doesn't really matter, because it should always arrive well. Very tasty, as I sometimes say. Or biteable. Just don't let the biter bite you (... but please let MIR *seeeufz*!!! :DDD), he he he.
Yes, the scent is really worth a test!
