Let time pass to seduce.
You should be seductive, flattering the wearer's nose, a fragrance you buy for yourself, which you also enjoy enjoying for yourself in your own four walls. I was curious yesterday, when I sprayed you on, curious and wanting to know what I put my dear mummy there for my birthday as filling in the small but fine decorative wooden box.
You begin incredibly loud, so that I began to doubt the sensuality so often associated with you early on. The vanilla, so heavy, sweet and oppressively coming along, climbed into my nose with a brief, then quickly disappearing praise of bergamot.
Well, there it was - the one-dimensionality, the boredom of which was by no means the main problem. Rather, it was the heavy, pompous-pressing aroma that sprayed the vanilla. I wondered what could be so fascinating about such monotony that an average rating of 8.1 was achieved. I still decide to be patient and wait for something like a scent to run. And in fact what I was waiting for happened - a transformation.
The vanilla was joined after some time by a clean, powdery iris. The scent I so appreciated was not able to knock the place-holding vanilla from the throne, but I didn't expect that either. Instead, it receives a discreet powdery touch.
The now powdery, vanilla sweetness is complemented by jasmine, which adds a sweetness of a slightly floral nature to all of this. Nevertheless: Vanilla still plays the leading role and the floral remains rather in the background, but can still be smelt.
Then later, although noted in the top note, lavender is added first. This is a fragrance with which, if overdosed, I can ... coughs masculin pluriel ... cough... I got my problems. Here, however, the dosage is right and the lightly floral, powdery vanilla is given an equally discreetly spicy, fresh addition.
Now somehow the sandalwood is still missing, isn't it?
Let us put it this way: it is mixed into the composition, but it takes a long time - really a long time - to make itself felt. His performance is the final one that takes a few hours.
I'll explain it better:
Spray the scent just before falling asleep, wake up many hours later, the next morning, and let yourself be greeted by a vanilla that comes along wonderfully creamy through that sandalwood.
Guerlain was really lucky with this fragrance for me, because there are certainly not a few - perfumes are not meant here - who do not have such a patience of an angel, the absence of which then ensures a speedy stamping. I gave the whole thing the necessary time, was able to get to know the facets of the fragrance and classify it accordingly. So the wearer should look at cold evenings as the appropriate times to wear, apply the scent a few hours before leaving the house and then go out with his somewhat later ability to seduce people. Or she decides not to leave the house, to make herself a nice evening and to wear this scent only for herself, to enjoy it and to explore it.
