The fidgety summer night

Translated, Vol d'Hirondelle means "swallow flight".
With a swallow I do not associate this perfume, but the impressions that come into my head are from the bird's eye view. Funny.
Namely, this fragrance associates a beginning evening in a lively small town on the Mediterranean coast. The day was hot and so life really gets going with the setting of the sun.
Between the small old houses with the heat crumbled tile roofs plays music, jingling of Streetfoot dishes, laughing women, screaming children.
The scents that the heat had lured from the herbs and trees mingle with the cool evening air and the spices of the prepared meal.
A full-bodied, multi-layered scent of
tart and dark green shrubs, citric is hidden among various other ingredients and triggers more of a dark, heavy freshness. The floral hints are present but authentic, woody in nature. Slightly creamy musk mixes with smoky, earthy parts and is surrounded by a slightly fruity hint, it could be fig. The spices are not heavy at all, rather create a feeling of sandy soil.
A perfume that conveys the summer feeling differently. No aqua, no tea, no pure citrus, no clean scent. The summer association is transported via a light spicy, woody scent. What we have here is the chilled scent of a summer day full of work and the loose, fun-loving release of same as the sun sets.
These are my favorite summer scents as they fit perfectly into this time of year, they are native to summer and evoke the most imagery in me.

Thank you for reading my comment

It seems Unfinished
I don't know, something is missing on this LM Creation. It feels for me more like an sketch than a real fragrance and it lacks something that it makes it original. I cannot get this painting association, so i must assume that it's more related with LM friend friend. He or she might like something very mainstream and with a polished rose, which is what Vol d'Hirondelle smells like to me. It simple, it starts with boozy roses with herbal touches and citrus aromas and then it goes into a base where woody vetiver and musk share the spot. Certainly it captures what i would associate with the windy movement of swallow birds, but it lacks the dark aura that it's associated with the picture the link the fragrance with. Not bad, but not great either.

With ease at the ground
I usually like heavy, sweet, gourmand, woody fragrances. Usually I try to avoid fragrances on the fresh (and especially citrus and fougère) side, with one lovely exception Aqua Fiorentina. VOL D'HIRONDELLE is very much alike in feeling, and Aqua Fiorentina has only a bit bigger place in my heart, solely on the right of primacy, since I sampled it half year earlier than Vol d'Hirondelle. Those, who like Batucada, this one can be also appealing.

To come to the point: This scent is light, fresh, contains crumbled green leaves with citrusses. Even though it is spicy, it is always natural and near-earth (but not earthy at all), I am struggling how to unfold it, that it touches air, water and ground as well, maybe I should describe it as a real forrest-fragrance.
I have not sniffed any flowery ulterior motive in the complex cloud. It never gets too sweet, and keeps the distance from the extremes of gender, so I could call it a well-balanced unisex perfume.
