The Dance
Isadora is a tribute to the dancer and choreographer Isadora Doucan, who was born on 27 May 1877 and died on 14 September 1927. The perfume was launched in Paris in 1977 on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of her death. She was the pioneer and companion of modern and symphonic expressive dance. Since she was an opponent of classical ballet, she tried to revive the dance of antiquity. Which she did successfully. She orientates herself very much on Greek ideals of beauty. She was a very charismatic personality and managed to captivate the audience with her mostly very revealing performances which she danced in tunics. Which brought her fame throughout Europe and later the world. Isadora Doucan was a gifted, disciplined and highly talented dancer, which brought her grandiose world fame. But what she succeeded in dancing, she did not succeed in private life. She lost three children. The first two in an accident in Paris when the chauffeur wanted to repair the defective car. The car started to roll and fell into the Seine. Both children drowned and so did the nanny. A few years later her newly born son died right after the birth. She had no luck with men and was abandoned several times. She died in a very macabre car accident in Nice. Her too long scarf got caught in the spokes of the rear wheel of her new car while she was doing a test drive and broke her neck. The perfume Isadora was a homage to one of the greatest dancers in history. A tribute to her beauty, her grace and her impressive personality.

The perfume
Isadora is like a sensual dance. When applied to the skin, the creamy, soft and creamy Opoponax scent immediately spreads. He is also the choreographer, the basic step and the tackt of the whole piece. Gentle, soft vibrations of creamy mint run through the perfume like delicate poses and twists. It gives the impression of a mint tea refined with cream. At this stage Isadora is very reminiscent of Emeraude by Coty. Isadora remains in this minty creamy state for a long time before the mint retreats and the fragrance takes on a different pose. The opoponax blossoms into an antique and slightly fruity rose. The antique impression is supported by the addition of gently roughened oak moss. With tender steps she seems to dance through the fragrance. A touch of melancholy runs through the perfume like a delicate sigh. Finally, Isadora says goodbye with a deep bow to a curtain of delicately tiled leather and a soft reverberation of soft powdery vanilla.

Conclusion
Isadora is an extremely successful dance performance in Opoponax. All notes revolve around this delicate creamy resin as if in a dance. Like a filigree, gentle veil they float through the main note and float above it as if to the coronation. The pose of the coronation was, by the way, one of the most famous poses of Isadora Doucan. She lingered in it for minutes until she had the full attention of the audience and finally captivated everyone before her dance began. The perfume also fascinates. It is incredibly soft, warm and sensual in its aura. If I were to compare Isadora with other perfumes, I would say that Emeraude by Coty and Shalimar by Guerlain in vanilla finish are very similar. The perfume is truly more than worthy of an Isadora Doucan and in my sense a more than successful homage to her.

Her last words were on 14 September 1927 when she got into her new Bugatti convertible in Nice: Adieu,mes amis. Je vais à la gloire! (Adieu, my friend. I'm going to heaven!) She was only fifty years old!

My last words at least to Isadora are...Formidable!
