Sensations. Or the scent that is always more beautiful on others
I will never forget when my former roommate had her birthday party. It was a glittering party and there were numerous presents. One of them was a Flacon Sensations. She always used to dispense her perfumes very generously. Like this one. Did it bother me with some scents, she could have bathed in this one and I would still have run after her with huge eyes full of pure enthusiasm.
After a tender-floral start Sensations catapulted me directly into the land of milk and honey. So here we don't have a food-safe gourmand, but a wonderful, delicate and yet present, very feminine perfume. The sweetness is also moderate, but this fragrance was Cockaigne for me, just as I imagined it would be. Soft, cuddly milk notes are underscored by sweet, full-bodied amber tones. The cereal note is wonderfully delicate and mild. Quite different from CdGs Sticky Cake or Lostmarchs LANN AEL (which I also love). No, Sensations is, despite these notes, simply much more perfume and yet so fantastically sweet and cuddly. I loved this fragrance. One thing was quickly clear to me. I had to have this great fragrance too.
After a few weeks her bottle was already used up. So I got a 30ml bottle of it, applied it for the first time and was honestly a little disappointed. As the wearer, I couldn't even perceive this phenomenal, cuddly symphony of notes. Yes, the fragrance was pleasant, subtle, cuddly, but as a wearer I first of all noticed the woods and a subtle creamy note. This divine sweetness was almost completely missing. What had happened? At some point I used up my bottle and Sensations was forgotten
Forgotten, until I noticed it again years later in the hospital on a nurse. Exactly as I had met him on my roommate. Kawoom, and I was immediately in love again with this scent.
Yeah, Sensations is mean. This scent always smells much nicer on others in the projection than when you wear it yourself. Recently I discussed with dear Nickhun2 about Sander fragrances and remembered my story with Sensations, because she also wrote that she likes to perceive this fragrance on other wearers. Yes, that's right. I can sign that exactly like that. It only unfolds its potential if you don't wear it yourself. Sigh I've never experienced this with any other scent before.
