Carving bananas on Halloween
Hello you curious noses! Welcome to my latest comment. It's not yet October 31st, so Halloween, but since I was able to test two Halloween scents, I'm releasing this one a few days before and the second one on Halloween.

You may know that Halloween is one of my favorite days. Due to the current corona crisis, this year is a bit of a washout for costumes, streets and Halloween parties, but I stuff myself with candy and watch scary things like perfumes, that can look scary when I should annoy them again... ha ha no, of course I meant scary movies, whereas I am 110% sure that you ladies can be really scary and frightening when you get angry, yes yes! D

Well then, before I go on babbling here and say something fatal to me at the end, I'd better come to the description of the fragrance. And yes, about my title, Carving Bananas? Well, that might not work, but this Halloween scent smells like bananas at the beginning :)

The smell:
The fragrance begins with a green note, which is probably the banana leaf, as just mentioned. This smells quite nice and reminds of unripe, green banana or banana peel. Shortly after that the violets start, which gives the fragrance a sweet and slightly powdery note. In the background the fragrance is slightly aquatic, which contributes to the freshness of the scent. However, the scent also has a synthetic feel, which is not too bad now, but some might not like it as much.
Every now and then, the scent radiates something slightly fruity, which is nice but also quite weak, so that this is soon hardly noticeable. Rather, it remains with sweetish and floral notes, but whether you can smell magnolias or tuberoses better, I can't tell you for sure. I've been here on Parfumo for over five years now, but I still can't tell the difference between floral notes, I must be stupid or something :D
Anyway, the fragrance becomes less fruity as the scent progresses, but it also becomes weaker and weaker as the aura diminishes (and has never been strong). For example, you can already smell the vanilla in the base, but only if you sniff quite close to the skin, this scent doesn't have its usual charisma like in many other fragrances. Apart from that there is a somewhat synthetic to slightly stuffy impression in the background, which I don't like any more.

The Sillage and the durability:
The sillage is weak, I think he will hardly be able to smell it from far away.
The shelf life is also only a few hours, so that you hardly notice anything after only three to four hours.

The bottle! The bottle has a slightly bell-shaped (or dome-shaped) shape and is filled with violet scented liquid. The bottom is thicker and the name of the fragrance is engraved on it. The cap is round and silver. It's not a particularly spectacular bottle, but it's a nice one. The one or two collector's bottles of it have of course been made much nicer.

Conclusion:
So, that was Halloween and the scent itself is not spooky, neither in a negative sense nor thematically to this holiday. But unfortunately it's not really good either, because it doesn't only radiate very weakly, but also smells quite trivial. The beginning is still quite nice, but as already said, the scent quickly weakens, so that one can hardly smell the base notes properly. A second point of criticism would be the synthetic note, which you can perceive throughout the whole fragrance, and in addition, every now and then a slightly stuffy note rises, which I personally like the least. So I can't really recommend the fragrance, even for Halloween fans.

Otherwise, the fragrance would be more of an all-rounder that could be used during the day in all seasons. As I said, you don't have to test it, so you better have a look at the scent "Halloween Shot", which is much better and which I will publish here in a few days right on time for Halloween, so that you still have something to read and get distracted from your "Beat Don Juan de Cat" fantasies :D

So, well, then I'm done here for today and wish you all a pleasant evening, see you later :)
