Where, please, is Hedion? or: The core
Yeah, that's the question - what is Hedion anyway? When I recently ordered a bottle for a sharing, I wanted two fillings: High Frequency and Blessed Baraka. I knew the latter and love it, although I find it so strange that I can hardly describe it - or perhaps because of it. High Frequency now starts out quite differently in the first test: very, very flowery-sweet and pleasant. Quite harmless and spring-like and innocent - but be careful, he's a real sly old dog! The flowery thing doesn't end. No. Much stranger: It recedes from the core, it withdraws to the outer edges of the skin I sprayed, the back of the hand. Inside this place the space becomes free for something else I cannot name. But exactly the same is also true in Blessed Baraka. Is that supposed to be musk? Do I know him? But according to the pyramids, this is the only thing that is contained in both. Too bad, too bad I know so little. This something that pushes itself into the middle and then doesn't move a millimetre for hours, is exactly why I find Blessed Baraka so exciting, because I know this fragrance from nothing else. Could it be this mysterious Hedion I don't even know? I also find the scent distribution in the area fascinating. Now, after hours, the magnolia is still present, while I really only felt the almond flash very, very briefly at the beginning. The magnolia is beautiful and delicate and slowly pushes itself back into the middle - I find this fragrance development incredibly interesting. The core becomes somewhat weaker after hours, leaving behind something floral. This scent is very pleasant, but as a flower scent it is not outstanding. I have many people like that; the fascinating thing is the unknown to me. If someone would like to enlighten me, I would be delighted! Otherwise, I prefer Blessed Baraka, as I find this fragrance extraordinary in its entirety, although it is much tougher, by no means as gentle as High Frequency. My rehearsals are both very fresh, so I know that The Core clearly belongs to both! When such fragrance experiences take place - then it becomes really exciting and makes you want more.
