The secret
Everything about this fragrance is mysterious.

It started with how he found me. Never heard of the brand before, it was recommended to me in my fragrance search for a green-fresh fragrance in the forum. But it was kicked out of the shortlist relatively quickly - due to the info "no longer produced" - this only causes headaches, better, you don't know what you missed (or not).

Then a completely different fragrance was discovered in the souk, which the dear Parfuma wanted to release only in a double pack. In combination with one I didn't want at all. The souk hopefully thinned for other candidates - and bang. "Hedera" - recognized immediately. Something like that is no coincidence - the double pack was allowed to be newly arranged and already both were mine.

The mysterious packaging. Inside the pale yellow box with the beautiful ivy leaves - and there is no bottle waiting, as expected. No, there is a second, this time round box, covered with dark green velvet. Like a narrower, higher hat box - very noble and beautiful. Only then do you hold the bottle in your hands.

The scent test itself was a surprise. It was recommended to me as a green-fresh summery fragrance with a minty, cold note. What do you want me to say? I fell out of all the clouds.

After spraying on briefly a citric-herbal "bomb" - so intense that it really and truly tickles your nose, that you - as much as you want to go on - automatically back away a trace, because it is simply too much, presumably the bergamot has the trousers on here... A few moments later, the orange blossom appears - a radiant orange that bathes the scent in a glistening light and conjures up a blissful smile on your face for a few minutes.

From then on the fragrance pyramid does what it wants and no longer adheres to the protocol. Suggestions of coconut are already coming (although listed in the base) and from now on I have a scent here that is not fresh in any way and certainly not cold. He "sweetens," he "bumps." (neatly), he "BROKERS", he's luscious. There's hardly anything more sumptuous. At least on my skin.

I smell no trace of jasmine, no rose, no lavender, no pineapple, no woody notes throughout the fragrance.

The ivy note is dominant throughout and a coconut-buttery, very pleasant, but also very special note flickers in between or in addition. Although not listed, I also mean to smell grapes in between - lush, fully ripe, juicy grapes.

All in all, this fragrance is not uncomplicated and casual for me to wear. He's dominant. He stands out. In my opinion, it is also a scent that polarizes and that could provoke an "ihh, that smells" in some people. Similar to "fig" in perfumes, which sometimes meet with different reactions.

Durability I would classify in the midfield, towards the end it becomes tamer and the designation "green-creamy" probably hits it.

My better half judged him as "strange" and when asked what he smells, I heard 3 times in different fragrance phases "tea/fruit/a tea bag mixture".

And here we come to probably the greatest secret of this fragrance. He should be able to do whatever comes to his mind with us on different skin types. And it might arouse completely different associations in different people. When I read here freshly minty, when I read summery and hear of use at 30 degrees, then I am inclined to believe we are talking about different scents.

But no, I guess it's always the same. "Hedera". The one that refreshes some in summer at 30 degrees, the one that spontaneously reminds others of a visit to a fair, that looks minty-cold in some and that reminds me of a wet-grey autumn day in late summer (in my opinion it fits exactly to this weather) of sweet juicy grapes and coconut butter.

How the always same fragrance does it, how it is able to do it and how something like this is possible at all - that is probably its secret - and will always remain so...
