Everyone has it, everyone needs it, if you don't have it, you have to get it. What do I mean? Right, the good old white basic shirt. Available from H&M and Co in an exciting 3-pack. We often forget how those basics accompany us in our everyday life and are often more important than our beloved high-gloss clothes. I like to wear only a white shirt, which is somehow liberating, simple and light.
Also a basic is for me the Laique White. It doesn't cost much, smells solid, is not overly exciting and lasts adequately long. Just as long as a normal white shirt stays in the household. But the Lalique is also a minimalist in terms of its aura. We smell pepper (fortunately only light and soft), the lemon is added to it in a sniffable way and cedar and musk are a bit harsh. A fragrance that smells as pure and bright as a white T-shirt. At least as long as you don't wash it with dark colours. It has a, I think, slightly milky freshness. Just like a peppery lemon milkshake. Its straightforwardness is not at all cheap or too simple, it is pleasing and gives the impression to be valuable. For me it is impossible to imagine the summer without it. Also at home it is one of my favourite scents of the day. Especially after work and showering it is ingenious. It never annoys, does not sting, does not look clumsy, has no synthetics and is therefore ideal for home or the office.
In my opinion, he should have a little more stamina for an even 10. He lasts for 5-6 hours and has only a minimal charisma in the beginning. But it is different, if he gets really hot under the A
, then he can radiate well. But with the price simply fill up something and carry it in a pocket sprayer. I also like to store it in the fridge in summer, then it still has a nice cooling effect.
So you see, the Lalique has a lot in common with a Basic T-Shirt: it smells bright, like the white of the shirt, it doesn't cost much, it is a Basic in every good collection and once it is empty, you know that you need a new one to get through the summer.
What are your basics?
