Sweet flower madness: Rebirth of a classic
For days I did not dare to write anything about these scents. The respect was too great, the thoughts too manifold, the flower show too overwhelming But somebody has to make the beginning, so I guess it's up to me again...
Fol Arôme has been reissued twice after its first life at the beginning of the 20th century (at least, no other reliable sources), and to my knowledge recently and in rapid succession. First in the context of the new editions created for teaching and training purposes (also for a small circle of fragrance lovers who book a seminar to get to know old Guerlain fragrances that no longer - or "so" no longer - exist) according to old formulas by Frederic Sacone, and now also by Thierry Wasser, the Guerlain-owned master.
Both variants differ slightly: Sacone's FA goes in the leatherier direction, more unisex, heavier; Wasser's more in the playful, more name worthy direction: a beautiful, colourful flower dream with minimal, soft leather undertones The mint in the top note awakens the nose and makes it receptive to the sweet, almost narcotic flowers that shake hands and dance a round dance: I smell a lot of carnation, a little narcissus, iris iris - on a sweet bed of peaches. Surprisingly lively-sweet, and yet a clear relative of the over-scent from the same era: L' heure bleue. Less sexy, more ... you may not believe this when you read the notes, but I feel it like this: more like a young girl I smell dragee undertones, like the wrapped, colorful foamy sugar candies of a big brand from Bonn.
Doesn't fit into today's fragrance landscape, and for this reason alone I would strongly recommend it.
Holds well, smells good, and above all: is fun!
