Casual-haute couture combo paradox
A beautiful, ingenious - compounded fragrance, where the snow fruit (Gaultheria hispidula) plays a predominant role alongside cinnamon, mostly in the first part of the evolution. This small white fruit has a kind of odor that reminds you very well of the smell of a Christmas tree in the house (a smell of confiance near a heat source, combined with lightly minty chocolate). The perfume evolves after half an hour in a fragmented flavor, in which I find and myrrh, with certainty, although it is not listed. No apple smell detected and very less flowers notes. On the middle notes, I remember Kenzo Jungle's vintage version (not the now-irreversible mutilated), through the slightly sugary cinnamon note. Finally, there are cedar notes, lightly smoked vanilla, and a musk base, very natural as a smell. It is a complex perfume, beautiful, with a fine and nostalgic vibe. Even though I do not feel anything highly innovative in the recipe, it certainly has the quality of a niche fragrance, as all this collection of the late Jesus Del Pozo was made under his direct Mr Del Pozo guidance. The materials and essences are of high quality, outstanding technical properties, both sillage and longevity. Glass is a fine artwork, finely crafted, a black-glossy with heavy metal elements, the metallic ornament being made in a material very similar to bronze, so it is not a thin, inexpensive metal. The golden part continues under the lid, in fact, it is a bronze collar that covers the top of the bottle, the atomizer being in the same shade. It is worth mentioning that all the bottles of this collection are very well crafted, and the rectangular ones, and columnar ones, all of which have these massive golden-matte, high quality metal elements.
He gave me a very nice impression, like Arabian NIghts and his brother, Noble Leather Nights. I am sad to note that the fragrances made by this house, I refer to the Arabian Nights and Desert Flowers Collection, have been unjustly underestimated, perhaps because of a poor promotion and a small area of availability of these fragrances - such a loss! The quality of these creations is well above the average of some perfumes even from famous houses, and this feels from the box, bottle and smell and technical properties, clearly superior to many perfumes that are sold just because they are everywhere in stores, on the first shelf.
