Hello! Here I am again :)
... oh, stop sighing, it always hurts me so... *sigh*
I'll bring you a new commi, like every night. This time to a fragrance that somehow reminds me of my school days. But not because of the fragrance itself, but because the name of the fragrance begins with the French word "Quelques", which reminds me of the French lesson, which fortunately was only one of the few subjects in which I was really grottenschlecht. I think it was even THE subject where I was the worst, I don't know why... but I like the French language (which was probably not the case back then)!
Anyway, "Quelques" means "some"... so the fragrance is called "some flowers", which puts us once again in an area where I am so bad, too: Flowers! :D
Yes, yes, but you already know that, so I don't want to bore you with it now. What is more interesting is that this fragrance has been around for a number of years. According to the entry here on Parfumo, it was published in 1912, can you imagine? 1912!! There wasn't any perfume yet! What were people doing back then? :D
Be that as it may, here comes a quite old scent, which is still available, by the way, ... but probably already has some formula changes behind it, as it is ...
The fragrance starts with lemons, which not only appear fresh and citric, but also creamy, which of course could be due to the softer floral notes, but I can't say exactly what I smell about flowers that make the fragrance creamy... maybe this is a mix of jasmine, violets (which look powdery after all) and other flowers. Very soon I can at least identify the carnation well. But then it smells more like a mix of all kinds of flowers, now together with the oakmoss, as well as a scent in the background, which reminds me a little bit of mastic resin (maybe it's the galbanum or tarragon??).
Be that as it may, it still smells slightly citric and soft and creamy at the same time, which results in a beautiful, fresh scent, which can also be used on not so warm days. Over time it becomes a little heavier and warmer, especially when the ylang-ylang starts and the fragrance becomes slightly muggier. Although not soo extremely sultry, as it is softened by softer fragrances such as iris, tonka bean and other sweet scents like musk. Nevertheless, the ylang-ylang is also one of the main scents much later, which makes the fragrance look quite old-fashioned and mature, especially together with the oakmoss, more than at the beginning.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is quite good, so that one remains wrapped in a proper scent cloud for a longer time. Of course this cloud gets smaller and smaller over time, but the scent here is not a weak scent. The shelf life is also tidy with over ten hours of stamina.
The bottle is cylindrical and not completely permeable, it has something of the frosted glass. It is filled with a light yellow scented liquid that shines beautifully through the bottle. Flower patterns have been worked into the glass, which is nice to look at. The lid is cylindrical and gilded and you can also see flower patterns on it. It's a nice bottle.
Wow, yeah... there's some flowers in here, as the name suggests. I find the selection of flowery notes very successful. Even though I can't actually identify everything that is listed below in the fragrance pyramid, I think the mix of these fragrances is a good one, because it doesn't smell stinging or oppressively stuffy or really heavy and sultry at the same time. Everything is well balanced. All right, it's a bit sultry in the end, but in a good, bearable way that makes the fragrance look more mature than overwhelming.
The fragrance is fresh due to the citric notes, but at the same time it has warm scents under the flowers, so it should be usable not only in warm spring, but also in cooler autumn. The purpose here is a lot, from daily use to going out, in my opinion it is always good, but perhaps not so much for younger women. Maybe some of you are bothered by one or the other fragrance (e.g. oakmoss, which doesn't seem to be very popular), but if you look over it, you get a nice and nice flower fragrance. Not really outstanding (nowadays), where you have the feeling that you want it immediately, but still beautiful enough to do at least nothing wrong with.
For me personally this scent was terrible!
He he, don't misunderstand, that's not olfactory, of course, but descriptive. Okay, I also prefer much more beautiful and sweetish floral scents (so to you women, not to myself, to make that clear!), but I also think you could try this one.
Soo... that's it again. I go now still fast the third door of my Advent calendar open, stuff the unhealthy, but tasty stuff into me and moan around that I have not fetched another one or two Advent calendars ... yes I am a child ... I know I know, but you mampft such a thing just as gladly, I know that, you can say nothing!
Well then, have a nice evening :)
