First great love
As mentioned in the statement, this was my first "real" (expensive) fragrance after NoNames and Puma as a teenager. 2009, I was 16 and had a sample of this fragrance in my advent calendar. Wow, it was love at first smell. Rice steam, cherry blossom, frangipani enveloped me along with the most beautiful cozy vanilla. (At the time, I guess it was just wow - no idea what for, but it just smells insane).
Turns out my best friend wore that scent too, never occurred to me to ask her about her perfume though.
My precious sample was squeezed to the last drop.
At that time for me sinfully expensive I wanted him for Christmas, got him after some detours also (that would be too far out) and was for the 1st time in the 7th fragrance heaven. I wore it every day, well dosed, summer and winter. Although it's probably more of a fall/winter scent. But it was simply my signature scent.
For many years this beautiful fragrance was my daily companion and even a 100ml bottle was emptied next to the 30ml bottle, which has not happened with any fragrance since.
I can still remember back then we used to go to the perfume shops to mist ourselves with our Kenzo Amour to save up our sacred supplies at home. Back then it was on the shelf at eye level for everyone to see, advertised big and all its flankers (what a regret I have never picked one of these up, now they are all discontinued. If only they hadn't been so unattainably expensive)
Today it now sits on the bottom shelf in the perfumery, in the far corner, no longer being noticed. He seems to have somehow become old, as I also already sometimes feel. Yet he is in no way outdated or old. It is a warm, cozy, beautiful fragrance that seems to have been sadly forgotten. You don't smell it on every corner, so that might be the upside to it.
So I want to advise you, besides all the "hip" la vie est belle etc, if you don't know this one yet, give it a chance and take a sniff.
He impresses in my opinion also with an almost endless durability, especially on the clothes on which he is still noticeable even after washing. Also, he has no great scent progression, it always remains the same beautiful.
For me, he will always remain what special, even if I wear him no longer so often because the selection has simply become larger. He is for me simply one of the most beautiful, cuddly fragrances and as long as there is him I will always have a bottle here.
