Summer
I love these summery, uncomplicated Miyakes. Every year they find their way into my drawer and are used up except for a mini rest.
I have the quirk of not being able to completely empty a bottle if I haven't already bought a new one. So my chest of drawers is bursting at the seams, although many bottles are just about empty. So what...

Schades of Kolam is fruity fresh and soft. All the time. The grapefruit together with the jasmine make it so fruity. In the base it gets a little warmer and more cuddly. It doesn't radiate as much as the previous summer scents and is altogether a bit softer and more harmonious. Is it because of the Basmati rice? No idea, I usually only eat it. Although it smells really nice when you cook it.
At the end you can no longer notice the cedar wood, which otherwise comes across as very woody and dry.
The fragrance remains uncomplicated and definitely never becomes too much.
The durability is actually quite okay.

I generally like the flacons of LˋEau dˋIsseys very much, but this one is super nice. Typical cone with summery design.
