Pawlow's dog and I
Unfortunately, one is the victim of one's own nature, one's own psychological mechanisms. It is particularly common when you can see through the mechanism and still not defend yourself against it. That's how it got to me too:
Last late summer I discovered Jasmin de Nuit from The Different Company. I was totally thrilled, wrote a comment and bought a bottle in the souk. Immediately afterwards, on the very first day I was wearing the scent, I was completely unexpectedly accused by someone unjustifiably and attacked backwards. In the following weeks this repeated itself several times and I noticed that obviously someone else had tried to incite others against us. This went on throughout the autumn and into the winter. At the same time, we had a death in the family. I had often tried in the evening to calm down with the wonderful Jasmin de Nuit and it also succeeded a little. We resisted the attacks, we mourned, spring came, I wore spring scents.
But why this story about a completely different fragrance?
Because Séville à l'Aube reminds me very much of Jasmin de Nuit.
But while Jasmin de Nuit unfortunately causes me the unpleasant anxiety of constant fears of further sudden aggression against me, Séville à l'Aube brings me the wonderful soft serenity of a new fresh and pleasant day in Sévilla with friendly people on all sides (even if I have never been to Sévilla before).
What is so similar about these two fragrances? By far not everything, but this impression of sherbet powder, which made me think of the Pez dispensers in Jasmin de Nuit, exactly this Bitzelige, that Séville à l'Aube has even stronger. The impression of luxuriant, thick, soft, friendly floridity, of nectar scooping from the full, can be found here as well as there. This special part, which seemed to me to be a unique selling point of the TDC so far, surprised me completely at the L'Artisan and once again fascinated me.
Fortunately my Pavlovian reflex doesn't get through at Sévilla à l'Aube. The two scents are obviously too different for that.
What is the difference between the two fragrances?
In my nose it is primarily the intensity of jasmine (more intense in TDC).
In second line it is the intensity of green parts (more intense at L'Artisan).
In the third line it is the weighting of the spices/resins (more spices in TDC, more resins in L'Artisan).
Séville à l'Aube begins intensely green and fresh, but not so citric that it drives you to your forehead and crown. Rather, it gently uplifts the whole upper body with friendly, green freshness, as I can well associate with a morning after a summer rain. The plants have absorbed the water and awaken with strength into the new day, their essential oils begin to fill the still cool air.
There is a tickle in the air and now the lush nectar abundance described above slowly begins to unfold. Nevertheless, the fresh green still lasts for a few hours, even if it gradually fades into the background.
At some point, only the soft, viscous, slightly sweet nectar of the blossoms is left, which now slowly begins to become minimally smoky and more spicy. This process of change also lasts a few hours. For me, the scent is now more and more calming.
Sévilla à l'Aube is a perfect companion through the day, invigorating at first, always cheerful, friendly, powerful and in the evening a gentle downer.
He is a worthy successor for my Jasmin de Nuit, which I will now give away with a heavy heart.
It is not only too costly for me, but above all too joyless for me to train my conditioning again.
I'd rather wear my Sévilla à l'Aube in good company with Pawlow's dog, enjoy my life and greet with a strong woof!
