AUR(a)ORA - summer dawn
The fragrance starts with a harsh, scratchy top note, whose origin is mysterious to me, but from which you should not be irritated! After a few minutes, this is no longer perceptible and it reveals a very harmonious interplay of summer flowers and a slightly citrus note. In my eyes (my nose :-) ) a very successful, beautiful, fresh, very feminine spring and summer fragrance. Beautiful as the summery dawn...

The futuristic design of the flacon I find very appealing. However, it is unfortunately very unwieldy and it takes some hand acrobatics to operate the atomizer. But what the heck...
Aura I find simply wonderful!

Aura - Clarification with Jacomo
My special tip against too much "bad vibrations" !
Clean your aura, Dora!
(Short - Commi):
Your aura, the energy field around you, can not really absorb stress and negative vibrations at the moment and needs to be cleared up?
Jacomo, the perfume company from Deauville in France, has produced a wonderful fragrance that will make you smile again.
Grapefruit in the top note makes you fresh and just blows away negative energies!
In addition, numerous scientific tests prove that the scent of grapefruit is virtually rejuvenating:
Men appreciate women who smell like grapefruit at least five years younger...- (but this is in my opinion no advantage at all, just a 'fun fact' , which I did not want to leave unmentioned).
"Aura de J. " was composed by Eduard Fléchier, the creator of "Poison", so by a top perfumer. And you can really tell that "Aura J. ". Here was someone at work, not just lovelessly thrown together a few molecules, but a master of his craft, who has given real thought.
"Aura J. " is a fruity, floral fragrance, but just not a boring, conventional fruit salad - Fruityfloral! The fresh opening with grapefruit is followed by a charming, complex weave of mimosa and honeysuckle, two delicate flowers, which are given a special, distinctive touch by sandalwood and heliotrope, as well as musk.
In addition, "Aura" as the bottle color clearly shows, is a bright, yellow, friendly fragrance with a creamy base. A silky, light veil surrounds you when you wear it.
Completely different, by the way, from "Silences", the brand's tart, green classic, also completely different from Thierry Mugler's much newer product, also called "Aura", which I personally don't like as much as Jacomo's scent, which seems more harmonious and softer, as well as less "chemical" than the iridescent green Mugler.
Who is looking for a cheap, floral, really nice fragrance with a certain something, should give the Aura fragrance from Deauville, which is still available in remaining stocks online, a chance.
(For fun, I just did an online test to determine the color of my own Aura. The result will amuse Pollita in particular : LILA.
Was actually also clear. As a convinced and committed feminist, it could not be anything else with me).

An Atmosphere Of Unreality And Mystery
Almost three years ago, I came across Jacomo Aura for Men. What caught my attention right off the bat, was the original bottle, an inverted U-shaped square plexiglass shield, which encases a green fluorescent, and opaque bottle. The overall result is gorgeous, very pleasant to see. Yet, only recently I found Aura for Woman online at a ridiculous price and ordered it blindly. Here we have a similar design. This time the bottle inside the shield is rounded and a bright sunny yellow colour. And the fragrance did not disappoint me, either. Just a tip. To appreciate Aura for Women, you have to appreciate the smell of wild flowers in all their forms and expressions, which I do. As soon as worn, Aura for Women makes me imagine a lazy and golden afternoon, spent reading the book of literature under a pergola of vines, crickets and cicadas that chirp in chorus in the scorching sun and the light whisper of the wind among the trees of the valley, all this cradles you in a quiet nap. The book flows gently from the chest, into the air, there is the sweet scent of a citrus grove and wild flowers not far away. I think Mr Edouard Fléchier did a marvellous job here. 

At first, Aura for Women seems strong and complex, rich in fairly sour citrus fruits and carnal-looking flowers. The yellow grapefruit is thrown here with the bitter skin and the marrow, it smells like the sun-warmed fruit hanging from the tree, and it is not the sweet pulp of the pink grapefruit. Bergamot adds a touch of powderiness and tangerine lights up the complete citrus accord. Even the tuberose, perhaps mixed with the other blooms, white freesia and a pinch of lychee pulp mixed with sour blackberry, creates an aura that closely resembles the smell of hairspray. It is not the first time that tuberose-based scent has this effect on me, and I have already found it in other perfumes. Once that synthetic odour calms down, and the grapefruit and lychee stop struggling with each other, carnal and sensual tuberose reveals in all its beauty. Do not expect sensual and dominant tuberose as in Dior Tendre Poison, for instance, where Edouard Fléchier used it in a different dosage. In this initial stage, Aura’s got a bouquet of fruits and then the floral notes come out. They’re very delicate floral notes, slightly sweet, but overall fruity and a little artificial. 

When I start feeling the wonderful heart, the perfume turns into a rich bouquet of multicoloured flowers, the tone of the lacquer disappears completely. There are many brooms, a golden yellow flower from a herbaceous plant that grows spontaneously in the Mediterranean countries and provides an odour reminiscent of orange blossom and grapes, dusty, somewhat leathery and neroli. Freesia is fresh and mimosa is chalky-sweet, while honeysuckle supports the scent with the sunbeam that characterizes it without being too honeyed or overbearing. Amid this riot of flowers, the sweet jasmine peeps out, does not dominate, but completes the floral bouquet. This intermediate stage I would describe as all floral.

Finally, the dry down turns out to be soft, clean, musky. The well-known sweet and enveloping notes of white musk have the best of those creamy sandalwood and vanilla gourmand. There is a powdery base given by the root of the iris, and that beautiful heliotrope note, which nicely rounds the overall base. And I know that much modern taste just rebels at heliotrope. To like this scent, you have to have an open mind and tolerate both change and tension. When the base comes out, it almost has a carnation quality. Interesting to observe here are the base notes, which are the same as Tender Poison.

Why is Aura not more popular? It is fresh, with clean musk, mimosa, greenish honeysuckle, and freesia goodness. It absolutely shines in the warm weather, once it dries down. With questionably too moderate longevity and sillage, the perfume fits well during spring and summer days, perhaps you have to reapply if you want all-day longevity. Not obnoxious or offensive. The fragrance is appropriate for office wear.  Give this one a chance, especially if you can pick it up as cheaply as I did. Aura for Women is unusual, tropical and sour to start, then floral and powdery. Elegant but not old-fashioned, and I like the bottle being so different too. 

I base this review upon a 75 ml (2.4 fl. oz) I own since May 2020.

Slow Start, Fine Finish...
Aura for Women opens with a light shampoo-like grapefruit and lychee driven accord before transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart the perfume turns fruity-floral, as sour, almost rotting raspberry fruit melds with peony and lily-of-the-valley light florals. During the late dry-down the composition turns musky and woody, as the fruity florals mostly vacate to reveal slightly sweet sandalwood and slightly animalic musk in the base, softened by supporting slightly powdery vanilla through the finish. Projection is excellent, as is longevity at around 12 hours on skin.

When first applied on skin Aura doesn't impress, as a weird relatively cheap smelling shampoo accord hits the wearer right off the bat. Things don't improve much directly afterwards, as the rather odd decaying fruity floral accord while not unpleasant still smells a bit "off." By this point I was convinced Aura for Women was going to be the sole perfume composed by the great Edouard Flechier that merited a pan, but then came the late dry-down to the rescue. It is rare that a perfume can be salvaged by the late dry-down when the rest disappoints, but Aura for Women is the exception, as Flechier skillfully uses a sandalwood and musk driven finish that smells quite good and also is distinctive enough to separate Aura for Women from its peers. The material quality of the perfume is generally poor, but Flechier makes the most of what was probably a very tight budget. The bottom line is the $11.50 per 75 ml bottle Aura for Women smells about as inexpensive as its relatively low price tag, but perfumer Flechier is far too talented not to work wonders even on a tight budget, yielding a "good" 3 stars out of 5 rated effort with a strong finish to counter its relatively poor start. This composition is only recommended to patient budget perfume seekers willing to wait hours for a payoff.

Why isn't Aura more popular? It's clean, fresh musk, mimosa, greenish honeysuckle, freesia goodness, and absolutely shines in warm weather.
