Beautiful melancholy you are mine forever
Straight to Heaven is my fragrance of the year 2020 and to this Absolut bescheidenem year what positive to win, I would like to honor the small masterpiece of Kilian with this commentary.
"At the end of those lonely booze-soaked long nights, there's not much left.
Mostly just memories in the form of melancholy infused love lyrics. Love ? Sucks.
Now that the pleasures are gone, all that's left is affection for silent scratching on vinyl, my heart tightens, give me the fucking Orfiril.
After the chaos somewhere between alcohol and tobacco smoke,
we're still awake, but outside the lights go out.
All dark, so infinitely quiet.
We alone stay awake, in this sleeping world.
I close my eyes, I smell warm skin, the rum,
hear your breath and think of the rain pattering on the tarp back in the tent.
Two souls, together, yet lonely. Disfigured by society,
On the run from ourselves and what we have finally become,
even in childhood : troubled child.
Depression is a strange thing it's like no one notices the lack of air,
the pressure on the chest always comes back,I think of the puddles on the kitchen table and your vanilla scented candles. The freezer full of the foraged fruit gnomes.
And now......reading by candlelight.
Silence in my room and the one next door, I pretend I don't miss you,
turn the pages, the pages rustle, and outside the rain gets WORSE"
Straight to Heaven Extreme is, not a complex scent, not sophisticated, not.....extravagant.
At least not to my nose. Rum + vanilla very prominent and powerful, behind it almost barely perceptible patch, nutmeg and some wood.
Despite everything, the fragrance fascinates me so intangibly, the ingredients harmonize perfectly and shine. He is schnapsig, clear, but somehow there is more.
As you can see from my little text I associate with this rum aroma an extremely beautiful time. Chaotic, loud, young and stupid. But really happy.
When I wear Straight to Heaven I become melancholic, yes almost on the verge of depression when you reflect what you have lost. Beautiful pain.
The scent does something to me. And yet I never really feel uncomfortable. Soft Warm Melancholy in a Promising Black Bottle.
Gentle vanilla beans in sweetish rum, this connection, this alcoholic you have to like, but if you do that you get here neatly something for your money offered.
Flacon : As always High quality and ne smooth 10
Sillage : Not room-filling, but still well radiating especially in the first 2-3 hours
Scent : Perfect gentle rum, better gehts actually not
Durability : Holds much better than the Straight to Heaven White Crystal
For all Duftalkoholiker, pub goers, Suffies, Charles Bukowski Verschnitte, dignified gentlemen and perhaps also for the Ottonormalbürger with nem flask in the pocket certainly the Nonplus Ultra.
