Aaaah, what a day the other day. It was warm. And it was damp, which makes warm days a little more exhausting somehow. But still I was looking forward to this day, because I met again with a super nice and funny perfume to sniff out scents together. Hm,... you may remember how I often wrote (or rather complained) that I always find so sad that she never shows up with shorts :D
But now it was really so hot that she actually came in a skirt, what a sight that was! :DD
But hey, I wore shorts, too, after all. And also showed more leg. Beautiful, slightly hairy, more and more tanned by the sun, well-shaped muscular male legs! So enjoy these magnificent legs, you gawkers, I often write here how great your women's legs are, so it's only fair if you find my legs also horny... um,... beautiful (even if they shouldn't look nearly as aesthetic on photos as women's legs)! :DD
Anyway, today I tested the note de Yuzu again, after I noticed this fragrance so positively recently and I had tested it for the first time at a meeting with the beautiful-legged Parfuma :D
Especially the top note I find absolutely awesome, especially on such hot days like now (so as usual now, just ignore the few days of rain, because it will soon get very hot again). And although the rest of the scent is a little bit inconspicuous, it reminds us of... how could it be any other way,... of great holiday resorts by the sea!
In principle, the fragrance begins as you can read in the top note here in the fragrance pyramid. So citric notes that come across extremely fresh and lively. I would say that you can best smell the grapefruit underneath. Since the top note is so tangy, I think it stands out from most citric scents at the beginning. While most good fragrances might make you think how great and fresh the beginning would be, here you are absolutely blown away. Well, I was overwhelmed!!
Unfortunately, the top note doesn't last forever. In the next 15 minutes it goes down more and more and is replaced more and more by maritime notes. The transition from the citric scents to the maritime notes is not seamless, instead it smells slightly smoky in between, before the fragrance gets a slightly fishy old note (I don't mean that in the stinking, negative sense). Gradually this smoke disappears and also the fish smell becomes smaller, whereby it remains however still a little algig. Nevertheless, the fragrance becomes slightly saltier over time and is thus reminiscent of the sea. The citrus notes are still present, but this is more like afterglow from the background.
Sweetish the smell is despite musk rather small to actually not at all.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is wow at short notice as the citric notes radiate well. However, this lasts only five or ten minutes and then the scent quickly weakens so that it can only be perceived at close range.
The shelf life is about six to eight hours, but I find that after about three to four hours it becomes quite weak, almost close to the body, as you often say here.
The bottle is cylindrical and has a large label with yellow edges, which suitably appear quite "fresh". The name of the fragrance can be seen on it, whereby the "o" of the "note" looks like a musical note, since the fragrance was designed for the label Maison Kitsuné, which is also a music label. The lid is black and cylindrical. Something simple, but at least nice to look at, and it also lies well in the hand.
Soo, I really liked the smell. I really flashed the top note because of the great citrusiness, but I also liked the maritime notes, even if they should be a little bit inconspicuous on the skin and could therefore stand a little more "pep". However, if you want to enjoy the great top note, you would theoretically have to spray it every 30-60 minutes, whereby the bottle would unfortunately be empty quite quickly. This problem is similar to the Hermès fragrance with the also very tasty and refreshing top note: Eau de Rhubarbe Écarlate. Because also the Hermès fragrance has a damn great beginning, and unfortunately disappeared in the next moment, while the rest is beautiful, but not so outstandingly exciting (but as I said, beautiful nevertheless).
This means that for me here at Heeley the purchase of a whole bottle is not really worthwhile. Maybe at some point maybe a smaller version like 50 ml, but of course it would be great if there were 30 ml versions of the bottle as well...
Well, the fragrance has another nice advantage: apart from the great refreshment at the beginning, the later, maritime note reminds of the beautiful sea. But not during the swimming, but more so in the evenings, when one walks along the beach along the water, enjoys the cool water at the feet and lets the sky coloured red by the sunset have an effect on one. In addition one smells the algae from the water as well as the slightly salty air. Just beautiful! :)
Oh yes, with the Parfuma it was as always a nice "sniffing day". Of course it was also great that we were sitting at a small café afterwards, on chairs with backrests and seats made of braided materials, reminiscent of the bottles of John Varvatos' Artisan :D
The best part, of course, was leaving the café. When I got up the perfume showed a bit more thighs, which was of course a wonderful sight as always, mu ha ha ha :DD
The meeting is over and there they go, the beautiful pairs of legs that glitter sensually and beautifully in the evening sun, until they finally disappear into the depths of the underpass to the multi-storey car park. But it doesn't matter, because I have to go by train. And up to the station it is still a small way, which wants to be walked, where I see on this quite warm day on the way still various, further legs (and of course still more sigh)
