Old love does not rust
Your gentle lavender heart
conquers my heart by storm.
The way you've always gotten me also without lavender.
You look fresh,
almost younger,
got your hair cut...
Your sunny disposition ensnares me vanilla, tender and soft.
We walk through the garden, a light breeze of jasmine and ylang ylang passes by.
A light touch of your beloved pipe got caught in my hair.
The memory rises in me, as it used to be...
Your tonka-sweet patchouli kisses stick to my skin...
You're cute... soooo cute,
maybe toooooo sweet.
Wistfulness seizes me,
the thought of the past almost hurts That you're not who you used to be,
drills into me like a sword I'm trying to be reasonable not to get too involved with the new you...
It's hard...
But you're too sweet now want to please too many...
I'd rather reminisce than to be disappointed.

Shalimar that smells like Shalimar
I was tired of flankers of the queen of all fragrances. Often only the famous name "Shalimar" was put in front of the trolleys; the iconic imho flacon was misused to push another mass market Guerlain, which did not live up to its great name, into the shelves. Not always on the German shelves, Guerlain plays too small a role in German perfumeries, but in many French-speaking countries in any case, and generally in areas where the valued clientele still has its own opinion.
However, the subtitle "Philtre de Parfum", the allegedly used notes and advance praise from elsewhere made me curious. And when I had the opportunity a few days ago to try it out myself, I hesitated and hesitated by no means.
The first, quick impression on paper left a lot of question marks. A 70's/80's bottle of Shalimar Extrait, which I preferred much more than "new" pure perfume because of the almost deceased, never loved metallic bergamot top note, jumped into my face. Unfortunately I didn't have the time to deal with the fragrance in more detail.
But today!
The vintage top note "Shalimar Extrait" morphs into a vanilla/lemon direction, which has never been so flattering at Shalimar before, most likely in Cologne ca. 2010 (?) similar developments could be seen. The rose and iris notes are only perceived as background The longer Philtre lingers on my skin, the softer, sweeter, but also "younger" it becomes.
The Dorian Gray among the Shalimars!
Tonka becomes denser, while the fragrance becomes more skinned overall, which I rather welcome, because otherwise it could be annoying through candy overdose. Now it reminds me of a less potent version of Ode a la Vanilla, for many the best flanker so far.
In short, a successful blend of the best Shalimars, for relatively little money.
That was supposed to stay, so now it's your turn
