The silver sister
After I liked Halston Woman Amber so much, I had to have the older silver sister as well. She was also ordered blind and I was not disappointed by her either.

Halston Woman is not a loud, but very beautiful fragrance. The bergamot at the beginning is therefore rather quiet and not scratchy or nasty. I find it hard to recognize fruits (except citrus fruits) because I am not a fan of fruit in general and prefer vegetables and salads. That's why I could never have smelled the black currant. I recognize the marigolds, however, because I have them also in my balcony boxes.

Jasmine is exuberant, but not pushy and cheeky, as it makes a wonderful connection with the rose and the powdery/creamy iris root. Buttrig soft and creamy tender, otherwise I cannot describe this fragrance experience. But wait, we're moving on. The fragrance journey is not over yet.

HW becomes even warmer, softer, more supple and, if possible, even creamier. Which of the base notes add this special "enamel" cannot be determined by me. I suspect that there is also a hint of vanilla in the mix, because amber with vanilla, in the right proportion, gives me such a cotton wool soft impression. It is simply a successful composition - everything fits and fits wonderfully into the overall concept.

HW is a very friendly, appealing, but also adult fragrance, which I like very much. In a direct comparison I like the more serious, golden sister more, but that is, like everything in life, a matter of taste. Why is that? I don't know, but that touch of melancholy just seems to touch me more. When it comes to durability (approx. 10 - 12 hours), the two are in no way inferior and I will wear them with enthusiasm, depending on the mood. All of them.

Finally, I would like to point out that my comment refers to the Eau de Parfum version by Halston Woman. When I looked for the scent in the net, I had to find out that there is also an Eau de Toilette version. I can't say if and to what extent there are differences, because here on Parfumo HW is not divided into EdP and EdT.

Halston is back!
I wore Halston back in the day, and I still wear it on occasion in cooler weather. That said, I can clearly sense the lineage to the original Halston, yet Halston Woman is modern & up-to-date. After testing, I read some of the press kit materials, only to learn that this was exactly the intention with this fragrance. Well, they nailed it!

The opening comes on strong with fruit & roses. It quickly settles down, and it begins to seem a bit masculine to me, likely due to the patch. The ambery, woody dry-down is very reminiscent of the original. However, the fragrance never loses touch with its classification, which I think is ... hold your breath ... a fruity floral. Yup, there I said it.

Overall, the fragrance is fairly persistent, just like the original. However, I still find Halston Woman very likable and very wearable. I think lovers of the original Halston -- who don't want to smell like they are stuck in the past - might enjoy this most. I know I do, and it just went on my want list!

There's also a "Halston Woman Amber," which I'm dying to try too, although Halston Sheer & Halston Couture are utterly awful. If Halston Woman is any indication of the re-building of the brand, it just might be that Halston is back!
