A fragrance of special soul depth
like a secret of which only I know something, like a treasure chest to which only I have the key, like a hidden garden whose gate jumps open only on my magic formula.
And what is so mysterious about this treasure, which resembles an enchanted garden in secret?
It's the soul of Vega.
There are scents that attract you spontaneously, that you like very much, some reflect something of your own personality, you recognize yourself in it, so to speak. This is something very beautiful, comparable to a precious gift. I feel the same way with the eau de parfum by Jean-Charles Brosseau's "Ombre rose", my signature fragrance. There I find myself again and at the same time the scent finds me wherever I am, holds me tight, takes me in its invisible arms, comforts me. There are also fragrances that have character, a profile of their own and that's why I like them.
But VEGA has more, VEGA has soul - a soul with great depths that I cannot fathom. A mystical scent like a secret garden that is unfathomable and difficult to locate, that points beyond itself into another distant world. It inspires the imagination, touches one's own state of mind and influences it for good and better. VEGA can do just that!
I love to be touched and carried away within me, especially today. Something makes me think of the Far East when I spray VEGA. Maybe it is China that reminds me of this imposing, expressive eau de toilette? I don't know, but I feel it. H
Oh, today wasn't a very happy day for me. I am nervous inside and quite quickly upset, but this day I am especially close to the water. So I indecisively look in my scent chest for what I would like to wear most on this sunny day, which marks the beginning of spring in the calendar. My gaze falls on a beautiful postcard from our dear 'Turandot', on which all kinds of scent fillings are fastened with Tesafilm. And finally, my gaze is stuck on VEGA. The name doesn't mean anything to me at first, but it's a Guerlain, an older vintage and both appeal to me. I spray two times on my wrist and immediately something moves inside me, a noticeable change takes place, but it is only limited to my inner being.
This perfume, composed by Jaques Guerlain in 1936 and launched on the market in a simple grooved glass bottle, satisfies me, makes me pleasantly still with its calm, prudent nature. I no longer look around restlessly, my eyes, which hurt today, turn inwards, my nerves come to rest.
But there are many more facets - VEGA has a refreshing and lively effect at the same time, it captivates me completely. Again and again I inhale deeply, very deeply, what blossoms there on my skin in large variety:
Aldehydes of radiant luminosity.
Fruits of delicious freshness and brilliant brightness.
Revitalizing fragrant neroli, citric-sour bergamot and blossoming orange trees, which cause wanderlust in me - they all wrap me up, make me lively, drive away any tiredness or approaches of depressive moods.
This fragrance is radiant with happiness and flooded with shimmering light. The image of a large tree in whose branches the wind plays its game comes to me. The branches swing up and down dancing and let the sun rays flash through the fluttering foliage.
VEGA is also rich in flowers:
Light ylang ylang, delicate yellow rose and white carnation as well as cream-coloured jasmine and azure blue hyacinth fill entire borders. A sea of flowers, blown into the air by the wind, which mysteriously mixes to create a unique fragrance spectacle. Simply heavenly!
Exceptional is the exuberant sweetness in this fragrance. A sweetheart who never gets too much, who never sticks together and who never plörrt. A sweetheart who's noble, just precious and noble. It is true perfumeurs' art that is shown in VEGA. This is particularly evident to me in this harmonious, very present, but never intrusive sweetness. Heliotrope, vanilla, tonka bean and a particularly exquisite musk oil form a liaison here that can only be described as a pronounced marriage of love. Finely balanced, a melodious scent symphony emerges, which I actually like to listen to for hours. Already for ten hours I have been fascinated by 2 short sprays from the bottler with the label VEGA and still she has something new to tell me
Dear Turandot, in addition to PARURE you have sent me VEGA, another new, surprising and beautiful splash of colour from the Guerlain fragrance range. For that I say thank you very much!
