En Voyage chez l'Artisan perfumer: 7 Mon Numero 10 - scratchy soft cinnamon
This will be my last comment for the time being on the "En voyage chez l' Artisan Parfumeur" series.
I always found the brand "l'Artisan Parfumeur" very exciting, because it brought out great fragrances that I like very much and at the same time smell special or different. That not everyone in this forum sees it that way became clear to me when reading the comments on "Mon numero 10". Especially the perfumer "Bertrand Dechafour" is criticized for throwing more and more perfumes quite unimaginatively and in the shortest time on the market. The Mon Numero fragrances at least all came out in 2009, along with 4 other of his fragrances. In total there are 211 perfumes in 26 years (perfume database). Well, that's a lot - as many as successful perfumers of "mainstream brands". It also makes me think, I'm also more of a friend of low-frequency output. Of well-designed perfumes that take time. And some fragrances could have been saved for my taste as a niche house, but that was just my opinion when testing
Mon Numero 10 starts off biting, scratchy, accompanied by the scent of freshly felled trees and wood, as smooth as laminate.
There are very few notes here and I can't smell much more. The focus is undoubtedly on cinnamon, much more spicy than sweet. The sweetness I feel cloudy and light, no sticky Tonka nectar. Very pleasant, it has nothing overwhelming. Frankincense shows itself in its mildest form, soft, discreet, unsmoked. From a distance it smells like fresh cool dough, which is intended for Christmas pastries. Wonderfully soft, but not unmanly. One looks for a course in vain, which I find a little pity. Only the sweetness just described interacts with the scratchy form of cinnamon, which together with pepper stings the nose wonderfully I like that, but it's not quite enough. A cinnamon scent of this kind never occurred to me before and would be great as the base of a perfume with a thrillingly cheeky flow. It's a bit too simple for me
I think the scent is absolutely wearable for each sex, but preferably towards autumn or winter, in the middle of summer nobody wants to smell cinnamon.
I find it nice that it is not too strongly projected and therefore never seems penetrating
Thank you very much for reading my comment.
