Oh, Johnny...
Four years ago I first heard about the JG edp. The girl told me how seductive he should be and already I clicked through the internet, he landed in my shopping cart and I ordered him blind. He was thrown after you at the time. 40 ml for under 20€, I could hardly do anything wrong. A few days passed and I could hardly wait to let him move in and test him. And then it was finally time... the carton not really appealing, the bottle for it even more. For that alone it was worth the money, but of course the content should be right. At least I wanted to smell seductive. So take him in the arm...

The prelude stings a little in my nose, but it quickly fades away. Then a cherry comes through a cloud of incense. This will stay that way for a while. Towards the end, the fragrance becomes a little more powdery, but still nicely smoky. Wow! In my nose pure seduction, attractive and mysterious.
Cherry was never anything that knocked me out before (and I am always surprised that I smell it so clearly, although it is not in it at all) and incense was not really known to me at that time. I was crazy and still am today when I spray it on.

It lasts very long on my skin and is very well perceptible. However, it should be dosed discreetly, otherwise it quickly becomes too intrusive and heavy.

Shortly afterwards I bought the 60ml bottle, although I wasn't interested in bunkering at that time. And then at some point I heard that production was discontinued.

Why are the best fragrances almost always adjusted or reformulated? A question I don't think anyone can ever answer.

So I was really lucky that I had stashed it.
And what happened to me today? I sprayed it up again for the first time after last winter. How much I missed him.
Out of pure curiosity I looked for how much Euro he meanwhile goes over the "counter". Over 140€ for a small bottle. Not bad. And then my eye suddenly discovered a supplier who offered a new bottle for 35€...only one bottle in stock. I couldn't believe my luck! Go to the shopping cart and now no second hesitate and buy. Don't blink, or someone else might be faster and Zack... bought... now I sit here smiling happily in front of me and can hear the glitter in my eyes! Happy me :)

The Black Widow
John Galliano was once again a daring blind purchase from me about four years ago. But I have not regretted this purchase, because I liked this fragrance right away.

Yesterday I wore the bottle to take a photo of it at the central cemetery. I love this morbid melancholic beauty of old cemeteries and could walk there for hours. The old graves already radiate something special. But a cemetery is also a place where you can enjoy peace and quiet and let your thoughts flow.

John Galliano is not a discreet scent, but an intense powdery scent with an erotic radiance. Angelica and bergamot make the prelude. A heavy velvet dress of powdery iris, dark roses and violet violets soon follows. Something slightly buried, I think, too. The fragrance shows a powdery, light sweetness that makes me think distantly of dextrose. But it is not so sweet, the powdery scent character dominates. The fragrance is bedded on a base of soft amber, dark patchouli and some incense.
This fragrance should be dosed rather discreetly, otherwise you stand out with John Galliano. The Sillage isn't from bad parents either. I am also very satisfied with the durability and the bottle has been designed to match the opullent fragrance. But you only need to look at Mr Galliano's fashion, especially the haute couture creations from the nineties for Dior. Discreet is something else.
This fragrance envelops like a black deep purple velvet fabric.
Soft, tender, but dark and erotic.

John Galliano already has it in him and is the scent of a femme fatale. An erotic, feminine fragrance that reminds me of the seductive widow in black lace and silk from the film "DellaMorte DellAmore". A beautiful young woman, freshly widowed by her husband of old age, who then seduces the handsome young gravedigger. Unfortunately the cemetery is cursed and the dead come out of their graves at night and do their zombie-like mischief. The beautiful widow is finally bitten, dies and returns as an undead being..
I like pitch-black humor.

Traditional Turkish delight.
Candied violets.
Lavender honey.
Pink musk sticks.
All bonbons worthy of Antoinette's Versailles, yet taken together, far too sugary to bear!
After balancing the sweetness with incense and remarkably modest patchouli, book-pressed iris is added and then all is dusted in powdery aldehydes. Presented in an ultra-feminine flacon, this is the mysterious, mythical John Galliano Eau de Parfum - but take care, are there has been a reformulation: the original is by Selective Beauty, available in 60ml and 90ml. If your bottle is by Perfume Holding, it is the newer version and your mileage may vary.

Floristic Incense
Deep violet of iris and violet next to dark rose red and green accents, arranged as first-class floral greeting and enclosed exotic, balsamic incense for use in leisure hours. Short, short, clear, ready?
Not by a long shot! This is how it smells the first time the fragrance is sprayed on. But deep inside the heart of the perfume there are mysterious worlds waiting.
When roses and violets combine with incense, I find myself in a cool, stone hall, through stained glass windows in red and violet the sunlight shines and casts calming colored areas on walls and floor.
Wooden benches invite you to linger. Simple but beautiful flower arrangements are draped on a round stone table. Next to it bowls with glowing incense resin.
A benevolent "spirit" seems to live here, which has a calming effect on the mind.
A quiet rustling of the trees outside penetrates the ear. And the scents of fresh wood and good earth that penetrate through the tilted colorful windows mix with those inside. An atmosphere that holds soothing secrets is created. And their echo is the fragrance of John Galliano....powdery, smoky and "floristic"...

50 Shades of Violet
From pale Lavender to the darkest Aubergine, John Galliano Created a scent In homage to the
Complexities of the Color Purple in it's many forms, I love how Mr Galliano has taken and
Layered 3 of the different shades of purple fauna, and let them Interplay with each other
Pale Lavender Caressing with Dark blue Iris Or Crushed dark Purple Violets mingles with Iris, It Conjours A dance of the Seven Veils with each veil slowly Revealing different
Shade of Purple ranging to Pale Lavender to the Darkest Aubergine The Incense adds a bit of
Exotica and Mystery A wisp of smoke slowly rises like a Serpent and dances among the Purple
Veils Adds Sex in John Galliano,

Almost all Aldehydes have this Sharp cold and Hardness in their Scent, But not in this one
It's Smooth and Devoid of the Coldness of that note It just Blends in and turns almost Elusive in a Few Minutes, Angelica adds a Bit of Herbal Freshness into J.G, As the drydown
Begins J.G Turns more Flowery due to the Presence of Airy Peony with it's sweetness,

As J.G Finishes Patchouli adds an Earthy primalistic uninhibited Touch, amber brings a bit of warmth Patches of Musk Gives An Animalistic side of J.G, Ceder Finishes with Dry Woods.
