Around Jean Paul Gaultier´s Scandal is made a big hype. Only in 2017, the Eau de Parfum came on the market in autumn, then a year later Scandal Night (which I see as a kind of Intense version of this fragrance). And just in time for the beginning of spring the "lighter" scandal á Paris comes out.
I like the "primal scandal" very much. It is not (and still is) a revelation when I tested the scent to its appearance and got it as a gift. But the honey note was and is very tasty, somehow relaxing, comforting and "very intense". I also get a Joop Homme association when I wear scandal, something the two scents meant, or it's the feeling that I feel so familiar when I wear both scents, Also a touch of the classic poison, I see here. Only tiny, but still perceptible.
Scandal Night, it's a little different. This is already the case when spraying on. It doesn't smell orange (like the Eau de Parfum) but, it is only thrown around with honey! One feels bedded on honey, or for some surely killed by honey, since this note is very present. Here the honey really turns up. Was that in the scandal still well perceptible, Is here pure honey! This note dominates Scandal Night to 80%.
Only when smelling exactly, it smells slightly floral (through tuberose). But you have to try to keep them apart with the Hongi, because tuberose also tends to smell like honey.
A touch of cherry is also part of the game. But as I said, the main (or almost) sole note here is honey, deep sensual, sexy honey, which also smells slightly wicked and develops deliciously on my skin. I have less luck with other honey scents: Lady Million (and all its variations) get dusty on my skin, the honey extremely bitter and stinging.
Scandal and scandal night stay nice on me. And that's a good thing. I used to think scandal was "okay," now I think it's perfect. Scandal Night is even better than the normal version.
And finally once a smell (after many years) at me over 12 hours holds. and a pointed Sillage has.
I have a little uneasiness when I think that I have to smell scandal and scandal night in (high) summer. Girls and women, please! Do not wear it at the coming summer time. Both fragrances are powerful and not designed for it. On a wet and rainy day it may still go, but not with warmth. Or unless you want to attract bees, for they will most likely persecute you and choose you as a victim.
I know, from experience, that some fragrances have natural substances that smell of certain flowers and blossoms that attract bees and wasps
This was just some good advice from me.
Scandal Night is preferably worn in the cold season. Please do not use in confined spaces! More than 2-3 sprayers and everything sinks in the honey mist. Scandal and Scandal Night, are for me the Angel´s of the (almost) 20's, of the 21st century.
I forgive Scandal Night 100%. It's not the art of perfumery. But because of the honey (which I love as an idol, whether in cosmetics or fragrance) I give it 100% from the bottom of my heart. And since today I am the proud owner of the 80 ml size, with the slightly reddish fragrance and the funny "feet up" plug plug.
I hope we will be able to experience these scandals for many more years and they will not be taken away from us. Because scents are not only to please you, but they also help you to come down. You can also wear scents to relax and in this category belong both scents and certainly the 3rd in the band the scandal á Paris.
