Bob Ross paints an iris...
I'm sure Bob Ross knows a lot of you. That was the so likeable American with the great hair, he painted wet in wet and his pictures and his technique are simply wonderful for me.
Bob always said there was nothing wrong with painting, everyone would do it differently, and everything would be right. I even tried that once, but my kind of art shows a different understanding and it had such a slightly surreal touch of forest fire after comet impact with mud battle of the sea dwellers!
I used to love watching him on TV so much that he painted an inviting beach, an island, a clearing in the woods... and everything looks so magically simple.
And with so many pictures I always thought: Nooo Bob, don't, because I knew exactly what happened then:
into a perfect picture for me he then painted happy little friends, there were trees, bushes, bushes, whatever.
And I always thought, put the brush away Bob, don't do it, there doesn't have to be a happy little little bush, it gets overloaded, just leave it that way..... But Bob never listened to me (of course, were records...)
What does this have to do with the scent of Juliette Has A Gun, the Liquid Illusion?
Let me tell you
So now I come to the scent! I had the luck to be part of the sharing that the great BlueValkyrie has put together. Thank you again very much! I was so excited about the smell! And I was (almost) not disappointed!
A sweet puffy almond dream is that, yeswollja.
Gentle, caressing, attractive and already a bit erotic. Such an enchantingly powdery, not at all dry iris is added and makes the scent round, simply beautiful lying on the skin and a well sigh escapes my mouth. You just sit back in your chair and enjoy. It's like Bob's painting a picture. Such a picture always takes a while, you don't just throw it on the white screen.
Now let's say the scent stays on the skin for 6-8 hours (and it does). But in the middle of the half there is something that bothers me a little. Is it the tuberose? The interplay of the individual scents on my skin? I don't know... you slip around each other in your armchair and think: no way, you don't have to change anything! Bob paints an iris and there's something in the fragrance that bothers me. Whether Bob happy little tuberoses...tuberoses... no matter what you paint, you slip onto the front edge of the chair, pull your forehead in folds and think: started so wonderfully, it was clear that it wouldn't stay that way!
LEG DEN PINSEL WEG BOB!!!
There's a ticking something in the fragrance that I don't like at halftime, I can't say otherwise.
However, Bob continues to paint unperturbed, and the scent gets cuddly warm in the base and the iris is even still there. If you then look at the picture, you want to scratch away the small bush/shrub/whatever next to the iris and the almond with your fingernail, but you cannot.
Slide back in your armchair and look at the complete (art) work from a distance (I'll take the glasses for that). But take your time with it, look at it from different perspectives, see light and shadow, look at individual sometimes not so perceptible components and pause for a while to absorb the fragrance.
Fluid hallucination. Maybe something deceives me about the scent, brings out something I hadn't thought, however. A really wonderful almond-iris scent with hints of warm tonka bean, for colder days it warms the heart up wonderfully, in summer one should try it.
It is and remains throughout very close, the Sillagé is rather discreet, the durability could be a little better although there already quite others have rashly searched the vastness on my skin. Bob paints, so to speak, with half power, takes up less colour, brightens everything a little, so to speak. The brush washed out too early...
A really beautiful scent, I like wearing it. For the price, however, the Sillagé and the durability is too low for me
