Most beautiful powder box
I'm not big on powder scents, if you want me to be honest. Eau Poudrée by Narciso Rodriguez I find quite terrible, see my comment there and the comparison to Tante Pusseliese from "Pippi Longstocking". Powder scents are often so musty, so dusty, so old-fashioned - I haven't met one yet that has been interpreted in a modern way and I like it one hundred percent.

Until I discover Jil Sander's powder experiment! It's got musk in it, but it doesn't crush you. I don't know exactly what rice smells like, but it makes itself wonderful in this fragrance in combination with the soft cashmere and the sweet tonka bean. I like mandarins anyway and the freesia makes the perfume a little girlish.

The composition totally reminds me of the old Bebe baby care products that I really liked in my youth. Very pleasant and not intrusive, so that Simply can also be worn very well in the office. To overdose it (...is that what it means?) is difficult anyway, because admittedly Sillage and durability are not the burner. On my skin it even lasts longer than on my clothes, otherwise it's always the other way around. Applied in the morning, I can add it in the afternoon when I come home from work

Business and Wellness
I came to the sample as so often with an order. "Jil Sander," I thought, "aha."
Don't misunderstand, I like Jil Sander fragrances! They are very different and diverse. I think everyone will find some more or less suitable fragrance.

On purpose, he surprised me. I was thinking of... my office job. To me in a pantsuit and a white, fortified blouse and Fräulein-Rottenmeier-Dutt with glasses. Sovereign, nothing on your mind but work. Business lady. And me in my bathrobe, cuddled up, freshly showered.
Interestingly, I think it fits both situations.

I personally find the fragrance very, very pleasant, reminds me a little of my favourite "Strenesse" by Gabriele Strehle (but I haven't yet compared the fragrance pyramid). However, the "freshly showered" feeling is not long to notice, the shelf life is underground, at least with me.
I usually can't start with fragrance pyramids, unless they are as clear as Sorbetto Rosso by Escada. The component has to hit me with half the garden fence before I can smell it out. ;-)

Creamy, powdery, fine, delicate, discreet, slightly sweet, that's how I would describe it.
But my 60ml bottle is already 1/3 empty, for one day I need more than 10 sprays. Even my husband hardly smells a thing of it, even after the fresh application. Too bad, actually, because I find the scent very pleasant. And diverse. A beautiful, discreet everyday scent, which I would leave in the cupboard in the evening, unless it goes to wellness. ;-)

Perfume consultation suitably powdery
"I went all the way to the perfumery's oldest saleswoman and got some advice."
- That's cool. Then why did it become this one?
"She said it was beautiful for all those who don't want to smell pushy. Delicate even."

We are looking for a gift for a mutual friend whose husband hates perfume and would like to forbid her to wear it completely.
But because our friend, Carola, has always liked to put her own mind to the test, we like the role of the supporters.
We are therefore happy to help you choose the right perfume for Carola.

"First I described Carola :
She is 46, dark blond, has blue eyes and wears a chin-length bob. As a customer advisor at a large bank, she pays great attention to a neat appearance and prefers a classic dress style. Lots of Burberry and Longchamps, lots of navy blue and beige. She has a pleasant voice, never speaks loudly or even laughs uncontrollably. "
"Well described. That's how long the salesgirl listened to you? Oh, great. "
- Yeah, I even explained to her that Carola also has a very soft, vulnerable side. Then she immediately suggested a rather powdery scent. Showed me of Chanel No. 19 Poudré, but that was too expensive for me, moreover still too strong.
I also tried a new fragrance of 4711, Iris has it in his heart, but I didn't really like it. "
- Then she showed me the new one from Jil Sander. And that's who it turned out to be.
It is unobtrusive, yet not so quiet that one would not even notice it. The powder note also goes well with the fine, restrained Carola. It will combine excellently with its own odour... and maybe Rudi won't even know that she has perfume on her... at best, he likes it too! "
" Sounds good. And isn't the fragrance too synthetic? "
" What do you expect from a product of today? It's about mass market and profit... I think there's a big load of cashmeran built in, normal, don't you? "

I'm sighing. Naturally normal.
" Well, for my taste, it's quite acceptable. I also like the bottle, nice, clear design. Unpretentious. "

I'll say. That's what I really like about Jil Sander.
I always remembered her very first perfume. That was an elegant, austere chypre with a very unique charm. Much stronger than this powdery one here...
Oh, what the hell.
It's time to move on, it's time to get going... take it as it comes...
You can't look back forever, especially not "in anger..."
Yes, there are days when I wish I could go back to 1984, but only in terms of fragrance... but then I would be a teenager again and could not afford all the horny scents anyway.
_______
Carola likes the scent. She says that he gets along very well with her nude make-up look and the business - clothes, just because he has such a subtle, soft impression.
_____----
Of course Rudi doesn't like it, but he finds it "bearable" and better than this disgusting La vie est belle Carola used to wear.
____---
The salesgirl at the Bonner Traditionsparfumerie showed my friend another fragrance, this time for herself: Après l'ondée by Guerlain. You can still rely on trained specialists at the age of
60 +.

Reconciliation
Jil Sander is a brand that I used to appreciate very much, some scents already graced my collection and then it became a little quiet around Jil and me in recent years No fragrance really wanted to touch my heart, often that certain something was missing.

But now I am reconciled again with Jil Sander, because Simply Eau de Parfum Poudrée has enchanted me and has been my companion for a few weeks very often.
May sound a little kitschy, but there must be a reason why I reach for this scent especially on not so good days .........!

Eau de Parfum Poudrée is one thing above all else: it is powdery, which will certainly hit the heart of many people who love clean fragrances.
Rice powder is present from beginning to end and unites with heliotrope and tonka bean, so that a vanilla-mandaded tone resonates subliminally.
The freesia is not to be smelled clearly for me, nevertheless a floral note is present with all powderiness, but this does not play a main role and also the mandarin specified in the fragrance pyramid holds itself discreetly back.
Overall I find the fragrance very well balanced, all fragrances are finely interwoven and result in a delicate fragrance dress.
The only downside is the shelf life, which is at best mediocre, but with the moderate price of the fragrance I like to spray after.

Finally, I would like to say that I am really happy that Jil Sander has once again created a fragrance that for me goes beyond the predicate "nice, but insignificant" and has already earned me compliments:-)
