German Wife Shaving Water
"III" by Jil Sander is a very green-puristic fragrance. Feels very unfeminine, rough, scratchy - but what does that mean. Especially from a Parfumo who has never consciously, let alone olfactorically, experienced the 80s. Back then, it was certainly much more possible than today. Aftershave for the lady of the world. Today, of course, it still works. No XX chromosome carrier should limit herself. Only on the designer market, characterized by sugary fruit or refreshing shampoo fragrances, this is hardly conceivable. Almost no matter whether in the men's or women's sector. Unfortunately. A great pity. Such cabbage-and-turnip fragrances are missing in the non-niche world.

"III" is oakmoss almost pure on my skin. Green, herbal, barbershoppy with a kick. This is already very reminiscent of quite a few classic men's after shaves. Especially with the massive fragrance pyramid, surprising that hardly any other facets appear on my skin. Hints of roses, perhaps. Whether at the beginning or in the later stages. But what "III" does, it does well. Unspectacular, but solid. Undercooled, androgynous, emotionless. Only touches me peripherally. Though I adore the 80s and like to revel in them, no matter the art. Reminiscent of "G-Man".

Flacon: full Sander and 80s
Sillage: discreet-masculine
Durability: 6-7 hours - that was then below average

Conclusion: today clearly unthinkable, then also already daring and tart - "Woman III" is a unique Jil Sander. A classic of rough taste. And of course also wearable for men. Only there's just on the men's area clearly more complex and better alternatives.

The old days
There was a so-called 'milk bar' in my hometown. I, however, doubt that there were milk, shakes or even ice was consumed. It was rather a despicable bar and meeting place of the pot-smoker scene. *g* Preferably rockers on motorcycles drove up. This was into the 70s.

Aldehydes, spices and flowers are dominant! It doesn't disturb me. Nothing bites me. It doesn't last long and I am also restored into last years.
No, not into the milk bar. I was too young at the moment. Everything becomes so beautifully sharp, smoky, woody - Patchouli, groups, which assemble in the youth meeting - I am there now.

For me an absolute energy smell which also men could use.
