Freshly powdered
Tested in the "zero" year in a magazine by the way...thoughtlessly lubricated on the wrist... But I should still be heavily bewitched in the course of the day... A jasmine scent so delicate and intoxicating at the same time... Cotton candy powder. An incredibly clear, delicate scent that "infected" me lastingly. Powder, whenever I think of him, powder! No cheap baby powder... More like the powder from the boudoir of a successful businesswoman. Warm, soft, flattering, seductive and at the same time incredibly clean, clear without being lulling or obscene. Of course I had to have him... And today? I miss this fragrance very much! The new edition can't keep up in my eyes!

Adults, female intimacy
Imagine you applied a powdery-sweet heliotrope patchouli fragrance the day before, which carried you through the day. The next morning you wake up with his slightly smudged and muffled veil, mixed with your sleep scent. You can imagine him like that.

Just like its male counterpart, this fragrance also captivates with its very own, intimate skin tone, which at the same time has something protective, calming and adult seductive. The perfume is stimulating and pacifying, elegant and down-to-earth, fresh and deep, gentle and concise, well-groomed and covered with the sleeping scent of the previous night.

The fragrance starts with a floral tangy lavender that combines with the slightly bitter spiciness of rosemary to create a strikingly spicy freshness that blends perfectly with the present, tart patchoulitone and represents a beautiful contrast to the subsequent development. Then, accompanied by the airy and restrained sweetness of candy floss, this typical, charismatically intimate skin tone unfolds, from which I still do not know exactly which combination of ingredients it evokes and which sets it apart from other powdery-sweet scents. Heliotrope in combination with lavender with safety. The white-flowered herbs also convey freshness, cleanliness and a certain sweetness which, however, do not let the scent tend towards harmless. This is ensured by the patchouli, which contributes to a certain down-to-earthness and depth and is mainly responsible for the elegant, seductive and adult nuance.
All ingredients are pleasant and balanced around the powdery-sweet heliotrope dosed with slight advantages for the patchouli. The powderiness isn't make-up case powderiness, but rather reminiscent of baby powder, but with an adult touch. In the second half, the fragrance shifts more towards a sweet, sandalwood creamy vanilla fragrance - not quite so powdery anymore - and becomes a little denser and more set. Here he loses some of his fascination for me, because he no longer plays with the opposites of powderiness and spice. The first half, however, is always worth testing and carrying. There he is really special and independent.

Nowadays it can also be used for men and women, even though the gentle sweetness tends towards the female side. Due to its balance of freshness and sufficient depth it can be worn all year round. The shelf life is also remarkable and makes it a fragrance with a signature character, as the saying goes. Sillage and projection are moderate.

Compared to the new edition of 2014, this one, like the Eau de Cologne, is a bit fresher, airier and a bit less synthetic, whereas the synthetics are only subliminal and never disturbing. Both are great scents, but I prefer the original slightly in both cases.

P.S.: If you are interested in some background information about Helmut Lang and his fragrance collection, you will find it in my commentary on the EdC from 2014:

What skin wears
Sadly, this awesome fragrance was discontinued a few years ago. Something about the musk used that wasn't "safe", was the reason. Whatever. I went through several bottles of this stuff, I'm down to one, and I haven't been afflicted by by some mysterious deadly disease (current flu excepted) lol.

HL is a soft, clean, musky skin scent that suggests sun warmed skin, slightly clean/sweaty, and white cotton, the kind that's been dried on a line in the sun.
It is primarily a white musk fragrance, with a slightly aromatic opening and a quietly sensual drydown.
Not much sillage, its appeal lies in its ability to warm up on the skin and become a cuddle fest of epic proportions, lol. It's a scent that makes you want more, breathe deeper, get closer. It's the olfactory equivalent to the image of youth and health, but it is not teeny bopper or juvenile in any way.

Now honestly, the notes listed above make no sense to me: First because I do not believe that there is ANY cotton candy in this fragrance, but also because it is a musk superpower, in fact musk is the driving force of this perfume, yet it is not listed.

Anyway, Helmut Lang is the one scent that I find irreplaceable following its discontinuation: While there are many white musks scents out there, absolutely none even come close to what this one has achieved. It's the perfect balance between clean and sensual, meshes with skin in a completely personal way, uses the wearer's skin to become its own unique scent (this one will never smell the same on two people, I can guarantee you that) and it's never overbearing or cloying.

They always deprive us of the best ones, urgh.
