Formally varied
Hm, already the second natural fragrance within a short time, which refers by name to a black heart. The other one was 'Mon Coeur Noir' by Saint d'Ici and had turned out darker - but unfortunately not a great darkness, but the dark and stuffy variant. I like the "Mon"-less attempt a jag better, although it may not be seriously called "black".

It opens up a waxy-plastic-like impression with a slight spiciness, where I would have initially tipped on ginger rather than pepper, not least because of a diffuse hint of a piquant fruit note. Imagination? A scratchy bittersweet takes over. Besides, it's getting a little smoky. I'm thinking green beans wrapped in bacon and fried. Oh no, that doesn't fit as a picture now. Or...?

The sweetness scratches the back-flavour by a hair's breadth, the wax helps that it doesn't get as sharp as usual. In the course of the morning I think of candied peanuts, later of burnt rice pudding or semolina porridge. A source of diffuse smokiness finally seems to me to be vanilla, which to my knowledge would be an indication of naturalness.

Surprisingly, the fragrance as a whole is still not very sweet, let alone over-sweetened. A certain harsh dustiness may be responsible for this. Like Patchouli was involved. In addition, the wax-plastic impression, like a red thread, runs from front to back through the scent until it ends in the evening with - well, that was to be expected - waxy plastic vanilla.

Perhaps 'Coeur Noir' is a good example of a suggestion I received recently from Angua. She said that when you sniff pure, natural fragrance oils, you can see that they sometimes seem surprisingly artificial - because such things have become so alien to us. However, this is put into perspective when worn or with some distance. It would be a plausible explanation for the appearance that today's candidate puts down.

PS: Although the described may have sounded quite diversified at least in phases, unfortunately the fragrance is surrounded by a hint of monotony, which cannot be deduced concretely for me. 'Coeur Noir' isn't bad, but he can't inspire me.

I thank KingLui for the rehearsal.
