Greatly helpful Review24
The future will be rosy and I look forward to it....
Today I finally got myself some Lancome idols at a price of 54€ for the 50 version, because the packaging was damaged. For this price you can take the fragrance with you. Normally you get less than half of it so only 25ml. Lucky :)
I've been sneaking around idols for months. Tried, worn and tried again and yet I didn't want to treat myself to the fragrance because the price seemed a bit too high to me. Although the "very narrow" bottle sparkles beautifully pink iridescent against the light, I resisted the temptation to buy the fragrance. Until now.
Then came the resemblance to other fragrances, which I found too big, so Idole had to wait, S.Oliver for Her, but I already bought myself in September as a kind of replacement for Idole, since both go the same fragrance. For his price for Her held well, but I wanted the idol...
Today, as I said, I bought it and didn't regret a minute. Idole is definitely going away from all the sweet stuff that we unfortunately (for better or for worse) had increased the last few years. Idole smells feminine, minimally sweet, powdery, soft, in any case it could also be a Chloé scent.
In Idole, I see a modern interpretation to the classic Yves Rocher fragrance "Comme Une Evidence". Some parallels have both scents. Where idols seem rejuvenated. But it also has this pleasantly "soapy musky" which the Yves Rocher classic also has.
Idols start immediately with fresh pear note. This note dominates for a few minutes, only then does a freshly tangy green rose note emerge (as in Comme Une Evidence) which then remains so for half an hour. Only then does the fragrance become slightly sweeter, this slightly sweet note certainly comes from the other rose note. According to Lancome two different roses were used here.
A little sweet is all right with me. Too bitter, I wouldn't like the smell. This soapy certainly comes from jasmine (also included in Comme Une Evidence). The fluffy softness comes from the musk (also included in the Comme Une Evidence). So the scent stays and doesn't change anymore. Which is okay though. A fragrance should be able to open its soul and not alienate itself too much, as some other fragrances unfortunately do, which smell completely different when applied and when the base note fades out.
As far as durability and sillage are concerned: Rarely had such a wummsigen mainstreamer in this fragrance category. Idole lasts up to 13 hours! Today even the "sticky" sweet scents don't manage that anymore, hat off!
Idols isn't that! The fragrance is not complex either. It doesn't have to be, the scent pleases as it is. Only another name they could have given this fragrance, something with Dreamy Rose. :)
Blue mouse, I understand that this fragrance is your signature, which certainly suits you well!
