What was Jil Sander thinking when she created Jil Sander Woman II? At that time she had already fought her way to the top with her purist fashion. Despite all envy and resentment. You had to assert yourself as a woman. And she did! Past all the critics, past all the male colleagues in the fashion world, past everything that stood in her way. Jil Sander's fashion was so masculine and at the same time so feminine that the boundaries between the sexes blurred into a uniform, pure aesthetic. With Jil Sander Woman II she has given a perfume to this remarkable era, which is hard to beat in androgynous charm.

The fragrance
One thing I've said before. This fragrance is not for lovers of very flowery, sweet or very feminine perfumes. Or for very young women who are looking for something playful. He is from the 80's and therefore very loud and relentless in his appearance and composition. Except that the aldehydes appear here first, Mrs. Sander says the last one first with Jil Sander Woman II. In the light and airy, yet powerful aldehyde cloud, very animalistic notes come to bear at the moment. Apart from a mineral-rough oakmoss, which accompanies the fragrance on its way with a slight weakening towards the end, it contains very high doses of Castoreum and Zibet. I've rarely seen such high doses in a female perfume. Castoreum is an extremely masculine fragrance and is also traded as such in the language of perfumers. It stands for dominance and territorial possession. Zibet, on the other hand, is a feminine fragrance. It is considered a warning and indicates a danger. Both together are an unequivocal declaration of war! This almost dramatic introduction passes very quickly. A floral veil spreads that seems to swallow the animal notes. A powdery tuberose is mainly responsible for this. A herbaceous-spicy carnation soothes their sweetness at the same time. All other floral tones are not recognizable in detail. Everything is very clean and finely woven and sewn together. In the final phase or at the base, Jil Sander Woman II becomes more and more woody and slightly creamy resinous. What remains is a hint of benzoin, moss and gentle incense that fades away very close to the body.

Conclusion
I will never forget one of the most beautiful pictures of her. It's a black-and-white shot of Jil Sander. She wears a white trouser suit in a graphically perfect cut. The background is kept black. She is barefoot and her décolleté and the skin shimmers slightly shiny and sweaty. Her gaze is very lurking and she sits in a very masculine lascivious pose as if she were about to set off on a hunt. This photo interprets for me a modern Amazon. All attributes of masculinity and yet so brute feminine at the same time. If a fragrance matches this picture, then it does! One of the most stylish fusions of the sexes into a fragrance I know. A merciless, beautiful perfume. At least for me! By the way, Maai von Bogue comes very close to the Sander as a reverence fragrance or twin fragrance. Although Jil Sander Woman II looks more like a delicate hologram against it and therefore probably will be portable for many.

A dress is perfect when you can't leave anything out - a speech too!

I hope I kept to that...Mrs. Sander?!

Unforgotten love
My first fragrance that I fell in love with when I was 20. You remember your first love for the rest of your life. I've never forgotten him, searched everywhere and never found anything comparable again. Many beautiful followers came and went, but nothing did him justice. It is the scent of my youth: exciting, strong, oriental, impetuous and yet elegant. It is a typical fragrance of the 80s - a bit too much of everything, like the epaulettes on the photos. Would I really love him as much today as I did then? It's from another era - the same question you ask yourself when you find an old photo of your first love cleaning up. Yet I will never forget him the scent of my youth.
And then I found something that reminds me of him. Not so dominant, strong, conspicuous. But more modern, more contemporary, suitable for daily use but with a similar charisma: Bogeta Vanetta, EdP.
