"What lasts a long time will finally be good" would also be a fitting title for this comedy. Because in the meantime this Lanvin has matured into a real treasure, which I would never have thought at first. Here's my love story:
Éclat d'Arpège pH was a blind purchase, and after first meeting his siblings, I wonder a little afterwards about my courage. Because it started with L'Homme Sport, a quite appealing fragrance, but for me with too much sage. Afterwards Lanvin L'Homme, who also had a good score of 7.2, was allowed to move in. I liked him for 1-2 weeks, but he soon turned out to be a stuffy-penetrante liaison (maybe a question of dosage? Anyway, sold long ago). But I didn't want to give up yet. Because there was a sister there ...
And it was called Éclat d'Arpège.
But stop, that would indeed be a lady, and with a rating of 7.4 and over 200 users a quite attractive addition. But who you're talking about here is a gentleman, my lord. Pour Homme = For men, comprende?
Aaachso ... But smells a little feminine, probably away from the violet inside, est-ce possible? (thanks google, doesn't want to stand there as a french dazzler). Apropos French; for me the most beautiful language in the world; especially from the mouth of a woman. Swarm ...
Knock, knock, hello? anybody home? Here again to take notes: This ground of facts is manly, you've got a crush on a guy, man! Okay, I get it, and I go on with the text:
FabionO dubbed his Kommi with "Piercing Lemon Cleaner". Well, the lot of the one-night ..., uh ... one-min-stand-learners, who just sniff a scent and slam the door afterwards. Therefore nothing can develop out of it. Because in the beginning lemon comes across quite well, but this is by no means exaggeratedly strong or even overmodulated. In other words: The excitement of the first date already subsides after 1-2 minutes, and I as a citrus freshness fan even like it, whether it comes from the cleaner or not ;-)
Then, after approx. 20 minutes, the fragrance develops, in addition to the persistently light fruit freshness, a beautiful soft aquatic that makes it wider and now creates the basis for its special flair, its main note, which is also its sweetness: the violet.
And it was just this aquatic fluffy floridity that I, as a man, perhaps first had to get used to, which took his time. Weeks, months, ... Because obviously I had other expectations of this fragrance. But today, almost four months after our blind date, we are firmly tied :-) But actually this would have been expectable if I had only known that violet leaf is a main component of this lanvin, which did not appear in larger letters in the pyramid at that time. Because I like violets very much, as my commi to the unfortunately unnoticed Sun Men Sport testifies - one of my Top10. But the Jil Sander is spicier, which the Éclat d'Arpège pH is not, but instead it is aerated by its light aqua freshness, which persists throughout the entire course of the scent, perhaps a little underlined by jasmine and rosemary
And then the Frenchman plays one last trump card, which completes the love story. Because he proves his loyalty by a great durability (on clothes) and becomes more and more fine and transparent towards the back. This is due to the cedar and sandalwood, which are always a very nice basic combination. So you take a breath of fragrant freshness with you every now and then from hour 4, which ensnares you, even embraces you, but at the same time unobtrusively discreet (the mistake is to smell this fragrance in the first few hours directly on the skin or clothing. It needs and projects half an arm's length, and is therefore ideal for leisure and work).
Conclusion: A beautiful spring and autumn Lanvin, which you hardly notice its light synthetic and which for me is always a welcome change to my other fragrances, and that for over 8 hours (worn on clothes). So it is also suitable for longer trips and not only for speed dating ;-) I also recommend Éclat d'Arpège pH as a unisex scent. Because its warm, slightly sweet-fruity violet aura is certainly also something for the female sex. So don't let him stop you too quickly from his current 5.8 rating, but first test the fragrance yourself. But give him time ... And whether it is worn by a man or a woman does not matter, because it seems to be suitable for a
Unisex love story !
