Nochmaaaaaaal! I'm
I don't want to deal with the noble, gently fruity and spicy start any further. Neither with the slight cumin sweatiness, which transforms into a leathery, but by no means inelegant animalism, quickly supplemented by violet leather with an initially distinctly petrol-like flap.

The fine inner tension between the elegant floral, light violet leather, to which jasmine adds a distinctly feminine twist, and its animal-sour counterpart, which in turn is cushioned balsamically, is also evident - albeit with great praise! - is only briefly mentioned. More stable than many a Ellena, the building seems to be erected.

For the sake of good order, it should be added that 'Aesthete' is unfortunately increasingly dominated from the early afternoon by light wood (as from the 'Shams' corner), while the floral moves to the side, but remains to be imagined to the end, finally accompanied by a touch of clean musk
All this is only a marginal topic today, anyway 'Aesthete' is not a fragrance that can or must be unravelled.

I prefer to deal with the transition from head to heart note alone. The way the seasoning brews from the start and then suddenly sends us on our journey to leather with a zest is simply sensational. Like the moment after the highest point of the roller coaster or the second the pilot gives thrust. Or the moment when the daddy accelerates swing or carousel spinning top on the playground. Nochmaaaaaaal!

The latter, of course, is basically an inappropriate picture, nothing at all about the scent is childish. Aesthete' is a perfume for the gentleman (and the lady too!) who may have picked up Heeley's 'Cuir Pleine Fleur' in his Storm and Stress days and has now become more relaxed. But none of the lived experiences is forgotten, everyone has dug deep into their personality.


I thank Serenissima for the rehearsal.

Challenging for a blonde
As, as I think, cultured woman I expected from "Aesthete" that the name is program.
Whoa, what was I naive!

My first impression was, "Am I in the predator house here?"
The second reminded me of parking lots in front of so-called "Muckibuden", where not only the heavy machines are standing, but the air alone is already testosterone impregnated by the clientele: Guys, who can hardly walk with strength and demonstrate their masculinity alone already by the already worn out motorcycle combination, which fits the machine, train there. And often also smell accordingly!
Not to be confused with the type of fitness studio where, for example, our former governing mayor trains. There, not only strength is built up, but something is also done for the fitness of the body and sometimes also the brain. The age-related "law of gravity" (yes, there is also this for men!) is tried there a little to counter But could that be all? Should only the territory be marked with "Aesthete"?

No, of course not!
Le Galion sets on a bang at the beginning, but then finds the right twist to make his aesthete still interesting.
Leather, wood, spices and incense, paired with jasmine, that will be something; only the "predator house" has to be crossed first.
The mandarin (she remains true to herself with her light synthetic touch) meets Davana, a fragrance whose softness appeals to women in their cosmetic lines.
Maybe that's why the incense seems a little less smoky; maybe the noble saffron note plays a role.
I don't know, but I'm so awake now that I want to know more. Would, oh, what - must!
Dark, almost black leather and the brittle hard gujak wood form the beginning of a fragrance mixture that takes a little getting used to and that doesn't emit too little animals: phew, that's pretty violent!
"Don't feed the Animals!"
But just now, as the fragrance curve and my now existing sympathy curve begins to sink, light appears in the dark: brighter white, stronger - slightly bitter, also a little bit "stinkier" - jasmine in its most concentrated, absolute form!
Thus the door is opened here very far for aromatic erotic-warm vanilla in generous dosage.
Whoa! What lucky hand has this sudden turn to elegance added?
That must have been an expert: everything fits at once!
Suddenly this almost oppressive masculinity becomes more cultivated, seems to fit slowly even into a tuxedo.
Especially when sandalwood enters this very powerful fragrance stage, the step becomes easier: the heavy boot becomes the classic shoe!
White musk, one of my "problem children", rounds off this very masculine fragrance very suitably here.
An almost unexpected turn has thus occurred.

A strong Sillage and very long durability are already natural with these contents materials.
It is astonishing that "Aethete" is very well suited for layering with me.
Some, even a little boring scents suddenly have fire, not to say: passion!
The fragrance of one is softened by the possibly even slight "nothing" of the other - fine!
And highly recommended! There is a very large experimental field here!
Just dare!
(And please tell me about your experiences!)

Although the little predator now still puts his head out of the tuxedo jacket from time to time, but "Aesthete" has now found its place.
Not business-like, not noble: this aesthete shows that dominance and strength and masculinity can easily impress even outside the usual "Kraftprotz" cliché.
The small, a little smelling predator, however, will always be there; must be accepted!

I would like to thank Can especially for sending me this fragrance: it presented me with a great challenge!
Maybe I'll put on "Aesthete" every now and then for my own pleasure; public certainly not!
For a delicate blonde of my age, he is a number too violent!
But also not to push necessarily "from the edge of the bed": sorry!
