The flight of the dragonfly
A fragrance that almost leaves me speechless. Hard to find the words that can do him justice. 1898 is extremely exciting and versatile. Rarely have I experienced a fragrance that changes direction so completely several times and is actually like the flight of a dragonfly. Sometimes he stays quietly on the spot, only to abruptly change direction in the next moment, return a bit and then do something quite unexpected again.
It starts with spraying on. The fresh bergamot is about to appear, but somehow it also has a transparency that is very unusual for bergamot. The fig leaf conceals further nuances waiting to be discovered. With the passing of the leaf, which smells of cinnamon, a light jasmine appears, which shortly afterwards gives way to the rose. The rose remains on the spot and has a golden shimmer. And the fragrance always remains transparent.
In the next change of direction the bergamot flashes once more behind the rose and then in 1898 changes completely to vanilla, which is grounded with patchouli and thus prevents an exaggerated sweetness. Cedar adds slightly woody nuances. So this flight then also passes, with short flashes of the rose.
The whole thing is cool-warm, juicy-dry, sensual-dravengeful, full of complementary opposites and never really tangible, which makes 1898 not boring either.
The flacon is another piece of Laliquescher glass art that has no equal.
The price has now fallen to below 200 euros in the offer, which makes the fragrance even more attractive.
A clear test recommendation from me.

Caught in the illusion?
And again a fragrance gives me a beautiful memory.

To a place I've told you about before.
To this small Greek island in the North Aegean Sea.
There is a small town there.
Near Therma there are many springs and countless small waterfalls, crossed by small streams and natural pools.
A place of enchantment.
On the way to the springs, there are huge and ancient fig trees.
Their fruits can be picked sweet and ripe directly from the tree.
The green of the fig trees lies delicately in the air and I sit down at this little stream.
Right next to me is one of the countless sources.
So fresh and pure.
I drink from her and the water tastes indescribably soft.
The brook splashes quietly and meditatively.
The large stones on the shore are warmed up by the sun, which throws its rays powerfully through the green canopy of leaves.
Dense soft rich moss protects the old tree trunks and gives a pleasant soft feeling.
Wispernd the foliage of the trees rustles a history from old times. Warm gently touched by the constant wind of the island.
In the air there is an enchanting scent of jasmine and wild roses.
Accompanied by fine resinous notes of cistus rose.
Tender green spicy iridescent.....magically soft and gentle ending.

And while I'm sitting by this little creek, I notice the hustle and bustle.
Countless dragonflies dance over the water.
Some rest on the warm stones, their delicate wings shimmer in the sunlight.
Their bodies shine and shimmer in beautiful colours.
A peaceful together.
In the distance I hear the bells of passing sheep.
Caught in the illusion?, for me this was a very special moment in reality.
