"Lemons are made from..." or "Does it help against moths?"
Phu! - Breathe a sigh of relief!!!
Just now I have offered a brand new bottle "Ô de Lancôme" successfully on ebay file,
and I am really relieved that this little water will soon be out of the house forever.

In the meantime I have become aware of the background of this, but quite intense emotional excitement.
It is the huge, prejoyously flushed and NOT fulfilled expectation that one inevitably shows when a fragrance in one's nose celebrates exactly the opposite of the
which in numerous reports sounded soooo promisingly beautiful.
And in the echo I still hear it: "citric, fresh, Hesperide scent, herbaceous, mossy",
and again and again SOMMER!

It's rare that a first spraying push has brought me into a frustration hole so deep in the Mariana Trench.
"Kölnisch Wasser" The first tangible and at the same time incomprehensible thought!
Where is the lemon?
"Franky mothballs in a small cardboard box, gray in the early years, on which it still says what's inside in Fraktur script.
Where's the lemon??
"Grandma in the bobbin lace blouse, serving Darjeeling with cake and sugar tongs."
Where is that goddamn lemon?????
Presumably, she's blown away with the currently absent countenance, too,
and celebrates her concentrated, summery-green-herbal tangyness, in any other flacon :-(

One does not really want to admit it with such bitter disappointments, and desperately searches for responsibility in all possible and impossible circumstances.
But after 3 days of repeated test runs, I could rule out all circumstances including: "weather", "personal condition", "moon phase" and "the shape of my nostrils"
finally overcame me just thinking about the big "Ô"... worst headache.

This forcing of sympathy has led to the bottom line that I can no longer stand this scent and probably explains best my joy that it is currently in a package,
and will embark on the journey to a person who hopefully will be able to offer him exactly what makes the "liaison" with a scent so unspeakably fantastic... The fulfillment of a secret expectation!

Have a good trip & Au (Ô) revoir :-)

O how refreshing!
This fragrance is absolutely wonderful. Superb in fact.

I had chosen the perfect day to test O de Lancome. A rather humid Summer day in the centre of a busy and steamy city.

I must say that at first the citrus notes came on quite strongly. It was very green and lemony. Although not entirely unpleasant, I was expecting the worst seeming that these fragrances don't seem to agree with my chemistry or my nose very often. I was about to write this scent off the list when I brought my wrist up to my nose for another sniff.

I was met with a delightful, fresh and cheerful blend of honeysuckle, various herbs/spices, jasmine and mild citrus notes. On my skin the heart and drydown was soft, slightly soapy, musky and feminine.

I can't say that I understand the masculine references. To me O de Lancome is girly and somewhat sweet, in other words something I can't imagine a man wearing.

I had no idea that this was a fragrance from the 70's, it is very modern and could easily pass as something being produced today. The lasting power is average, around 7 hours. I do recommend this.
