Jil Sander Woman III disappeared in a smoke full of burnt wood!
I still have about 40 ml of this scent from the old version. According to the lettering, this might be the 1st version (since this scent was also changed in the 90s and later in the 2000s, too).
Unfortunately, this scent is not as I would like it to be. The fragrance pyramid is lush, complex and I expected a fragrance that reminded me of Boss Number One. At least a bit more feminine, although I also like Boss Number One very much.

Today Jil Sander Woman 3, should finally be executed.

The first sprayer surprises me positively. It reminds me of Davidoff Zino, which I like very much. Rough, deep dark masculine tones dominate here for some time. I'm waiting for honey, dark bitter forest honey, some flowers and musk. Nicht´s neither comes the first hour nor after. What comes after the first hour, however, sets me deep disillusionment. After the "Zino" prelude, smells something like a chamber, where it is heated with coal or gas, where a lot of wood is stacked up, that makes you dizzy. Associations of fire and burning make the siren bells ring.

It doesn't get any better and the smell dominates that unfortunately there is nothing left for me to wash my hair soon. Since about 5 hours I have this smell on it, but nothing but headaches and the smoky dominant soot smell in my head.

I will either dispose of the remaining 40 ml or see that I find a buyer, because I don't want this imposition any longer around me. Don't get me wrong: I love many vintage fragrances also chypre fragrances. But I've never had anything like this before and hope never to have again in this life

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.
