Shadow of Autumn Part 2
Shadow of autumn part 2
I still don't understand the sales and pricing policy especially for this fragrance. On the market since 2017 (even which one?), but since a few weeks only available on the net for the smallest fragrance money (my one cost 44€), but on the Lalique page it doesn't show up. Is this again such a (annoying) limited thing only for selected markets? I would like to take a look behind the scenes..but maybe not...
The scent, as painted for autumn..you can literally smell the autumn forest in all its facets. The first impression, however, is first of all fresh, like stepping into the shade of the warming sun in the forest and noticing that it is already autumn and no longer late summer. A discreetly minty bergamot appears, wonderfully fresh and cool, a spectacle that can only be smelled for a few seconds before autumn, with all its spicy and woody elements, throws itself around. For my a mix as Gucci PHI and Man2 from CdG. Wood, nutmeg, pepper, bark, leaves, dryness. It's pouring on me, I want to dive right in and take a deep breath. I'm thrilled about this mix right away, but it's no wonder, because I like the Gucci and CdG very much. The Man2 in particular is the ideal autumn companion for me, despite certain synthetics and brand peculiarities. Ombre Noire smells very manly to me without being a macho pseudo parody. As if that weren't enough, this wonderful mix is complemented by a note of cognac, very aromatic, deep and slightly sweet, when I smell my Armagnac bottle there, very clear parallels, I also have a certain sharpness, as I like very much with the high percentages.
This also initiates the calm phase of the fragrance, it no longer changes magnificently. Some accuse him of a simple mainstream base, for me it will be
on the other hand, it becomes creamy-balsamic, soft..like sweet-aromatic, golden resin, here the great color of the fragrance fits perfectly to the notes. I can't judge whether the base can meet the highest demands, I've never paid much attention to it, but even with my very expensive fragrances, I would have noticed something special exclusive here, the base notes often don't serve that purpose at all. But even if he does, for 44€ he can smell something ordinary at the end.
His external glamorous and stylish appearance, the inner values follow 1:1, the durability is great with 6-7 hours, I can always perceive the fragrance in exactly the right dose without killing others, that alone distinguishes it from many mainstream fragrances.
Conclusion: For me there is no more beautiful and higher quality fragrance in this price range (even if the shop price should be a little higher). Here you get extremely much for extremely little.
