Parisian Nude Ice Cream
A few years ago, during a trip to Paris for his birthday, I gave my boyfriend tickets to a burlesque show at the "Crazy Horse" club; I had always wanted to see such a show
and was hoping for Parisian glamour vibes.
Moulin Rouge was described in many reviews as not so great and unsexy, but backward; forced animals in the shows and such, so it became the Crazy Horse.
Anyway, we kind of liked the show, the cute girls hopping around the stage with a mix of playful naivety and slightly wicked innuendo with pretty sets and revealing costumes.
Around us, many young couples; young women who patted their husbands' shoulders during the show in a patronizingly benevolent manner: "You can find it cool, it's all good! And I'm a very chilled out, cool and NOT jealous woman!", as were single older Asians.
Champagne chilled in tubs on all the tables, dim lights, a cleaned out dandy as "emcee" at the beginning of the show.
Anyway, after the show, my friend said in a daze, "I smelled them! Full blast!"
I knew what he meant too; their body glitter cream or whatever they had put on there.
That's what "Satine" smells like to me, except that the half-naked ladies had a little more vanilla going on.
So then times closer to the perfume:
I was recommended "Satine" as a very powdery fragrance, so far so good.
It starts out peppery and sweetly floral, quite quickly it also powders a bit.
Intimate, gentle and yet playful, directly wicked or sexy actually not, even if the fragrance would like to seem so.
So, as if the burlesque dancers were actually educators or midwives in the main job. Or very dear florists.
For me resonates there something diffuse sugary fruity, although not specified, which makes the perfume for me in this context somehow somewhat banal.
In the further course very fine powdery, sparkling and delicate, somehow with a tangy, tingly effervescent sweetness like raspberry cotton candy, but too little refined (no vanilla sweetness, which I quite like, but simply sugary sweet as you know it from artificial berry notes).
Personally, I would have liked more woodiness, something earthy, something that would give it more depth.
I could imagine the scent being a man magnet, but I find it too arbitrary, too familiar, it wouldn't appeal to me to spray it on, even though I like sweet-powdery scents.
Not bad, can be worn without feeling uneasy, but I had perhaps other expectations.
