Pepper with a difference
The stuff was called "Sigaprim" and was one of the various penicillin preparations in my childhood. I still have a good screaming pink juice in front of me. And it tasted just as artificial, creamy, as local anesthetic.

The prelude to 'Parfum Captive #1' reminds me of that. Mushroomy-furry would be another apt adjective. And pepper is now served with it, more hot than aromatic. With regard to its weight in the pyramidal data, I find it moderate in use - however, I am not a yardstick because I like to eat hot. Is that the reason why this candidate seems to me to be watery and pale? Even the hip light wood is only a breath. Now it doesn't smell like in a sawmill in a birch forest (the manufacturer refers to such a forest), so so be that as it may.

Besides, it seems to me there's a touch of watery fruit in between. So de-aromatized that I can't even name them. Maybe a piece of water ice that's been sucked out. Actually not in the narrower sense fruit, rather a rudimentary fruity, acidic aspect of something else. Hmm. Bergamot occasionally appears completely dewooted and alone citric-astringent. It's similar here.

And finally I read that Szechuan pepper is also called lemon pepper - certainly for good reason - and leaves a slightly numb feeling in the mouth. It all fits perfectly, especially since I had come to the first paragraphs honestly without any reading tutoring. It is possible to smell great fragrance design art, although I lack the imagination what this has to do with a birch forest.

In the course of the morning the fruity part gains substance and develops dry apricot ambitions. The iris, on the other hand, remains reserved. It is fresh and only minimally carotenic; the corresponding sweetness resembles that of a sip of fresh water after an extensive bath in the sea. On the second day of testing I perceive the iris stronger, but still discreet. A tiny splash of supplementary bitterness, possibly a nanolitre of bergamot, makes the lady even more distinctive. And if I think about it: Yes, 'Captive #1' may be called cum grano salis (at least also) an iris scent.

As I go on, the sour-fruity direction and the Sacht sweetness from the iris corner undoubtedly provide a certain inner tension, but unfortunately the matter becomes monotonous to me over the afternoon in its immutability in the long run.

Conclusion: The spark may not really jump over, but 'Captive #1' is a noble and universally wearable fragrance, ultimately more aura than perfume.

I thank Garcon for the sample.

* At our Höker in the village, the said water ice was available at that time for - I mean - a penny a piece; on the summer way home from primary school at the end of the 70s. For the younger ones among us: the "penny" has meanwhile fallen, namely to the euro as a victim.

The nose likes to work overtime
"Captive #1" by Schwarzlose Berlin is a fine fragrance. As if the price wouldn't tell anyway (although it's almost possible for an extrait), I just have to stress that again. It comes very close to my dream fragrance and my taste. A powdery, gentle pepper mix of pink gold leaf, human and extraterrestrially pretty at the same time. Supernaturally composed. An ode. Doesn't scratch, isn't too lame or soft for me, just right. Round and hot as a rat. At least for my olfactory bulb. Wonder, wonder, beautiful!

Watery and light (is this the lily?), yet strong in character and self-confident. Pepper in beguiling. And the price and the extremely good scent quality can be smelled and felt at any time. Great art. Minimal green and herbaceous, but on my skin it comes across very soft, iris-heavy, almost feminine. Without losing contours or being unwearable by men. On the contrary. Anyone who likes pepper scents will be off his rocker. Otherwise, I can't express my pleasure. That's pink smoke of red pepper coming straight from the gates of the Fragrance Olympus. Why he doesn't attract much more praise is a mystery to me. I can't think of a better way. For the transitional seasons the coronation. If you buy one of the 300 copies, you have something very precious. In every way. A collector's item, but it is too good to be allowed to collect dust in the cupboard. If the other captives still top that or even just keep the level, then my fragrance year starts phenomenal...

Flacon: very expensive, simple, but also very noble.
Sillage: by its strength absolutely wearable every day. One of the most expensive signature fragrances I know.
Shelf life: 7-9 hours I float in the peppery scented sky.

Conclusion: a fluffy, pink pepper cloud that simply knocked me down, enchanted me, picked me up and took me away. It's a great smell. Noble, portable, fine. And this to the square. If he were in my collection, he'd be one of the jewels in the top crown. Royal, indeed.

Ink and paper
Captive #1 wants to kidnap us in a birch forest. Full of wet grass and shiny, white trunks. The sun breaks through the foliage here and there and warms the ground and also us, the walkers - the guests. It's about conveying a scent image. But also the artistic approach to this topic. Not entirely free of abstraction.

The listing (on the manufacturer's website) of synthetic and natural components in the composition is honest and above all fair. Too often, hardly any other synthetic fragrances hide behind chords in the niche, only these are concealed by pictorial descriptions.

Thus Captive #1 radiates something moist and floral at the beginning, with light notes that could also be remotely reminiscent of dewy forest soil. Next to this minimal ethereal floristry occurs very quickly the chord of
Ambramone. This is moist wood with a slightly floral note. One or the other may notice the proximity to Altruist of the brand. MANE itself describes the smell of drying ink on paper.

The pepper components I take rather than dry fruitiness, e.g., of red pepper berries, was subliminal. So there are no sharp impulses. The subliminal cedar is somehow located differently in my head, but could not really reproduce the olfactory difference to birch wood. The more so as one knows the resin and the flowers from different other compositions from the Birk.

Captive #1 looks very harmonious, but also not really woody. I am not consciously transferred to a birch forest, but I find the scent really not uninteresting. For me it is rather minimal fruity-floral and contrasting: dry-woody. I guess it's ink and paper
