A touch of insignificance - liquorice rasping - I can't help but get through the horses ...
Equus pour Homme was a blind purchase for me, the filler, so to speak, to save shipping costs. Like almost all Lalique fragrances, it is very inexpensive to find online, but in many perfumeries Lalique is not even on the shelves.
Due to the very good rating of 8.5 at the moment, I was as tense as a flash bow at the first - and that's anticipated, last test.
For the coming autumn I was looking for some woody and spicy scents, here Equus should fit well into the scheme, I thought at least.
I liked the ingredients of the fragrance very much on paper, so what should go wrong with a price of mid 20€. The juniper berry, which is repeatedly praised in some reviews, is often used in my kitchen as well as in the digestif afterwards. I particularly appreciate the tart touch of the fruit in distilled form as a main botanical in gin. In Lalique implementation I can unfortunately not even guess it, in my opinion he lacks the bitterness of the berry completely. Overall, the fragrance is very sweet. More of a liquorice shredder :-) For a spicy Holdzuft the horses go through me here too fast with a very sweet benzoe-resin note.
Also the fragrance changes very little in the course of wearing, it remains flat, one-dimensional and therefore somewhat disappointing, I had hoped for a more differentiated course. Since Kenzo "Power" at the latest, I have come to appreciate flowery notes very much, here they blend into a sweet woody scent, strongly overlaid by nutmeg. Nutmeg, which I also like to use for cooking, gives this scent something dusty and old-fashioned, similar to Kenzo "Jungle" pour Homme it covers the whole fragrance pyramid. However, the warmer and less fresh players are not able to integrate the nutmeg.
Unfortunately Lalique therefore remains for me an uninteresting scent, which is also quite weak on the chest. Worn on the skin was after 4 hours absolute break from broadcasting. Within the first hour I could still perceive the scent, afterwards only very closely.
Of all Lalique-fragrances tested so far only Encre-Noir could convince with quality (yes, I could wear this polarized one only rarely, but it is well composed and has power). With all other fragrances I was always a little surprised about the good rating in this forum, because they were not comprehensible for me. This is not a reproach to all the Lalique-fans out there, I like to be taught better :-) #challengegeaccepted
Only the flacon can make something, except the plastic lid, which doesn't fit the aesthetic relief of the horse's head.
It was a short intermezzo between me and Equus, I will not ride the horse to death, but transfer him to a nine stable. The butcher was too sorry about the ferry for me. All that remains after our only ride together is a touch of insignificance ..
