Pioneering stylish purist
An extremely pleasant fragrance; stylistically confident, flowery-powdery-tart, minimalist feminine and absolutely pioneering at the end of the 70s. In a flash and rightly so, he put the previously pleasing (or predominant) sweet and the highly acclaimed oriental designer fragrances (best example: Opium by YSL) in their places. It is still incomprehensible to me why this great, honest fragrance was taken off the market! Probably the fragrance was simply TOO good and Jil Sander came too close to the "greats"!? The gap for the clear, cool-feminine scents was quickly filled by Balmain with "Ivoire", although this is softer and a bit more playful, and Scherrer with his first fragrance "Jean Louis Scherrer"; at that time called the most tart scent in the world, although it is by no means only tart, but underlines a wonderful clear femininity with its own will. With all subsequent fragrances, Jil Sander and the brand's successors proved successful business acumen; all fragrances follow the mainstream of the respective decades. Not so long ago there was a new edition of the first "Jil Sander Woman Pure", which (of course!) was not presented as the original fragrance, but came out changed and so you can hear me sighing once again..........
