Black magic or bitter old witch a la "Blue Gras"?
"Wow, how extraordinary, how interesting!"
"Something unprecedented,"
"Great for the summer! Imagine: you have a slightly bitter, black, ethereal aura around you. Like a witch," I raved about 2 months ago in front of my girlfriend.
She had no sympathy for my enthusiasm. "He won't touch my skin" she could only say. Her rebuttal was noticeable to her. "She just doesn't know her way around perfumes. Or is just not their taste," I thought to myself. I know my way around that, don't I? ¶)

Still full of enthusiasm at home to my son: " Smell this. Isn't that nice?" "As nice as an old couch," was the answer. Hmmm, no one in this house understands the high art of perfume.

The day before yesterday I finally got myself a bottling, sprayed it on for the second time yesterday (the first time I thought I was snuffed): and...my enthusiasm disappeared somehow in the air. The fragrance is simply BITTER, sober and simply bitter. And yet unpleasant. And very quiet. So that hardly anyone can smell your scent aura when you wear it. Maybe for the best?

To be precise, it develops like this:

first minutes after spraying: slightly sweet, bitter chocolate aroma spreads. It fills like a patch, but there's nobody inside. It's a mixture of liquorice and rhubarb. I don't know, either. Fruity I can call the fragrance to no point.

After about 10 minutes, the fragrance becomes bitter, bitter-hyacin, bitter-smoky, bitter-synthetic-smoky.... Very unusual, but not pleasant at any moment when you smell directly on the skin,

and indirectly, already 30 cm away, one hardly reaches anything of the smell, I have at least the feeling that my family confirms. What a pity, because I was hoping for the magic effect at a distance.

After about 5 hours, the fragrance passes into its base. The base is not uncomfortable. The scent becomes sweeter and softer, thyme sends greetings.

More bitter old witch than black magic. But definitely unisex.

Possible customers: lovers of "good" old classics "Blue Gras". Both go, it seems to me, in a similar direction, both are quite "bitter". But "Blue Gras" seems unacceptable to me, because it is scratchy and synthetic in its appearance. "Black Diantus" is a relief compared to "Blue Grass", definitely not scratchy, softer and more portable, but no less bitter.

I'll leave the grade as it is. You can't deny the originality of the fragrance. And maybe I should give it another chance? Let's see.

All in all, the fragrance is no longer a potential buyer for me at the moment
