To be exact: midnight blue and always shiny and of course workshop maintained!
With noble scented leather upholstery in marbled champagne ivory!
And - it was a convertible! Wow!
This car purring almost voluptuously over the Kurfürstendamm (to call it only a car is almost a sacrilege!) belonged to one of my bosses.
She had married richly, was even richer widowed and her own business - a detective agency "Special for Women" of women for women, hit a market niche and had in the office one and two half employees; one of the two half was then I.
This vehicle was of course an "eyecatcher" and at first glance the woman in it; with open top, the balloon cap with umbrella bold on her head: it all had something!
But unfortunately it could not be denied from the proximity: my boss was at that time the seventy closer than the sixty! So here was the opposite of: "Auto chic - man at the wheel too old!"
Actually, this phenomenon is mainly found in men.
Of course I had to think about that when I got the sample "Classic Red" and had to test it quite soon.
Although I have a weakness for the Scuderia Ferrari; especially on the race track and so I will also this weekend again cheer and swear, "the grey ones" should again spread before "the red ones". So much just on the side!
By different test rounds with different kinds of "the red", I already knew that I cannot expect from these, from me "car - motor - sport" perfumes called perfumes, too long durability.
They are also drugstore goods in a price segment that is not even noticed by many here.
But they are not badly or even lovelessly cobbled together by the bank.
This can also be said in advance of "Classic Red".
For berry lovers, as I am, the opening alone with ripe juicy raspberries and crunchy blueberries is pleasantly fruity; bergamot also goes very well with it. So it's an all around "beriger" prelude.
This berry-fruity prelude is piquant by a pinch of pepper, ozone makes the mixture lively - it does not bubble straight, but tickles pleasantly in the nose.
Jasmine, in the full scent of large white flowers, brings a certain elegance to this vitality in hitherto red and blue.
(Oh, I see right now: these are not only the national colours of France, but also of Great Britain - that fits!)
Tonka bean (well, yes ...) and creamy warm vanilla add a warm sensual sweetness to this fresh-fruity fragrance creation.
The spicy-woody cedar addition makes it particularly interesting; I really like this ingredient.
Patchouli and amber make this friendly fragrance shine golden and give it a touch of luxury.
"Classic Red Jaguar" is by no means a refined, exciting or luxurious fragrance.
It is an "ever-goer", who doesn't make great demands, but from whom one shouldn't expect too much either.
Who likes this fragrance will find a friendly companion, who is also faithful for a certain time, until he makes his way out of the dust on quiet soles (and without a booming motor)!
Somehow it was fun to wear this big cat offshoot a few times and to think of the elegant midnight blue coach in which I always felt a bit like a queen.
The Kurfürstendamm, overcrowded with traffic, then became a little bit of a "corniche".
Yes, not only faith, but also special feelings can move mountains!
Conclusion: The acquaintance with "Classic Red" is a through and pleasing; without great ups and downs!
This fragrance is pleasantly unagitated and nice!
