Hello hello dears, where did you put your noses in today? :D
Well, in my case it was this smell here: Gardénia by Isabey. A fragrance that, according to the description, is supposed to evoke an intense sensuality. It was a little unclear whether this meant the sensuality between the fragrance and the scent bearer or between man and woman. But as I know you ladies, you would prefer your fragrances instead of me, NOT TRUE? (yes yes, I have to ask this again and again...!!)
And no, I don't want to hear it, aaaargh!!!! DD
And yeah, today I may moan a little bit, because I have a little cold :D

*sigh*

The new year is only three months old and already all perfumes are just heartless beasts like all the years before... of course all this can only seem like that, but that remains to be seen, the year is still young, so there is enough time to get to know all your nasty sides... *sigh* :DD

Soo, before all this degenerates into tirades as usual, I better come to the fragrance. And by the way, I think about whether I should only describe men's fragrances, since you ladies do NOT deserve me here! Argh... :DDD

A little later the fragrance becomes even creamier, but the powdery impression gradually fades. It becomes more and more floral, and although it appears heavy, intense, quite sweet and, as I said, quite opulent, the fragrance is surprisingly not particularly stuffy and I hope it stays that way.
I think the other floral notes, besides ylang-ylang and iris, are the gardenia that gives the name to the wine, although I would have simply said (due to my lack of knowledge of plants) white flowers in general :D In addition, there is jasmine, which is recognizable by its beautiful sweetness. The indicated roses, however, I can not perceive at all ...
Also in the base the scent is very flowery heavy, then also a little bit muggy and stuffy, but of course this can only happen to me, because you know how I think about such heavy flowery scents or perceive them. Anyway, besides all the vegetables (by that I mean the flowers :D) there is another, slightly darker radiating sweetness, namely musk, which smells pleasant as usual. Apart from that it stays as usual and I think that the scent might appeal especially to you ladies.

The silage and the durability:*
The sillage is quite strong and you will definitely leave a very large cloud of scent with the scent, which can be smelled well over a quite long period of time. So the shelf life is also quite long. I would indicate here longer than eight to ten hours where the scent can still smell reasonably good on the skin.

All in all a noble, beautiful looking bottle.


The fragrance is especially good as an autumn or winter evening/exit scent, although it would not suit the younger ones so well, as it is also quite mature. I don't mean that the scent is old-fashioned, but you'll understand if you sniff it and then you'll notice that it's not really a scent for a young 20-year-old, but rather for a slightly older one, around... uh, let's leave it alone, you understand! D

So then, that's it from me again. For the next time I will try to grumble a little less, whereby .... but it won't happen, but you never know!...
Well then, have a nice evening and see you all :)
