Hanging Gardens of Babylon or just Amalfi Coast after all?
No cell phone, no emails, no other people far and wide, no annoying tasks to do. It's a pleasant 25°C, a light breeze blows in my face. A small, round, tessellated table, an iced gin and tonic (with a sprig of rosemary, of course) and a fresh fig I picked myself punctuate the moment of perfection. I sit in a squiggly gazebo, letting my eyes wander over the lake glistening in the sun, occasionally sniffing the rose dangling from the gazebo roof right next to my nose. I stand up and slowly stroll through the avenue of old, gnarled pines toward the herb garden. I let my hand glide through the flowering lavender bush and take a leaf of fresh sage for the road. Escaping the daily grind, my head turned off, I enjoy the never-ending moment of peace...
Again, due to my still inexperienced nose, I have to rely largely on the reader's imagination for my second review. (Whereas I probably couldn't smell out a Florentine iris in 20 years :)
Nevertheless, I can claim that JV Artisan Blu is exactly what the fragrance pyramid says it is, but find that instead of the description fresh-aquatic, blue-green-herbaceous would be significantly more accurate.
Basil, lavender and later woody notes (probably pine and cedar) can be picked out quite well.
The bottle is out of this world visually. (And I have to admit, it did its part in the blind purchase - thank goodness). When you hold it up to the light, you can see through between the blue ropes, but it roughly feels like you're looking through slightly tarnished glasses while snorkeling. Comparable would also be an aquarium pane, which could use a basic cleaning again.
The cap is heavy, it could almost be made of stone. Only the sprayer is a little "flat" come, which is why you have to press almost 2-3 times for the amount of a normal spray.
H (with me about 4 hours) and S are unfortunately the weak points of this otherwise so excellent fragrance, which of course could also be due to the fact that it is definitely suitable for warmer days, where the shelf life compared to "winter fragrances" anyway usually rather low.
Conclusion: The 125ml there are mostly so zw. 30 and 35 €, since do a few more sprayers in any case not hurt. Since you can not always be in areas like the Gulf of Salerno on the road, it also does the domestic city park with stream ... Especially in the spring, when everything starts to become green.
For someone who would call himself rather "summer" than "winter man" has JV Artisan Blu definitely potential for love at first breath.
