The Louis Vuitton among fragrances? He he... :D
Hello you smelling noses (which is certainly better than running noses, isn't it? :D)!
Today I'll tell you how I found the scent "Sun Song" by Louis Vuitton. Soo... so now it's Louis Vuitton's turn. You know, I would never have thought of testing fragrances of this brand because I didn't even know that LV had fragrances at all!

Anyway, I met again with a good friend, who after some snooping around, dragged me into the Louis Vuitton shop. Sure, Louis Vuitton!! A brand that ALL women know and a brand that makes all guys shudder. Why?

Quite simply:

She said, "Treasure Bear!"
He said, "Argh, you're not supposed to call me that in public!"
She says, "Don't worry, most of the people in the shop are tourists, they don't understand anyway."
He said, "All right... what is it?"
She (looks very kindly!): "I'd love to have this scarf here"
He (bites his teeth together): O.. Okaay... what... uh, does the price tag say?"
She said, "Oh, only 750 euros!"
He (already half the world breaks down for him): "*sigh* Well well... (ironically) So much it is fortunately not for a simple scarf..."
She said, "Yeah, right? Then I could have that bag too!
He said, "..."
She said, "Besides, she's been put down! From 3499 Euro to only 2799 Euro!"
He (extremely gnashing his teeth): "... you only want to have this as compensation because last night I drank too much and puked all over the toilet, didn't you?"
She (smiling like an angel): "Yay!"

Afterwards she goes totally happy with a new silk scarf and a new bag from the shop. Silk scarf and bag! From Louis Vuitton! Which together cost more than a whole apartment! Finally she has new things again for which she could be extremely envied by other women, and that will be a good feeling for her!
He, on the other hand, sighs for minutes, curses the other customers in the shop who, of course, are not just tourists and some have therefore understood every word, and sometimes even removes the salaries of three to four months in his mind, because they have disappeared into thin air within 20 minutes of shopping... and then says a generally known sentence that was most likely first said by a man anyway: "I NEVER drink again!".

...
...so it's lucky I don't have a girlfriend?? *sigh* Pah... :D
All right, let's get to the fragrance:

The fragrance:
The fragrance is described relatively quickly. It immediately smells of fresh and sparkling lemons, which have a very refreshing scent and are therefore especially good in the heat. In addition there is beautiful neroli, which goes wonderfully with the lemons and somehow actually reflects the feeling of sunshine. In the background there are herbaceous-green-herbal scents that I can't define any further, but they go well with the summery theme of the fragrance. And that's it!
Yes, you don't smell any more, and what you smell doesn't last very long either, is just a typical citric scent that refreshes quickly, but also evaporates quickly. After about an hour the scent is already relatively weak and then smells mostly bitter before it disappears a little bit later.

The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is weak. The fragrance starts lively with a fresh fragrance cloud, but this disappears quite quickly, so that one could only smell the fragrance, if at all, from close up. And as already mentioned in the description of the fragrance, the fragrance is also extremely unpleasant, since the citric notes can hardly be really smelled after about an hour and even the bitter fragrances become very weak shortly afterwards. For me, the fragrance was very close to the body after less than two or three hours and was therefore even more unscentable for others.

The bottle:
The bottle is cylindrical and beautiful yellow. It looks like a modern form of a laboratory or pharmacy bottle, especially since the spray head looks like a stopper. The magnetic lid, which fits seamlessly onto the spray head and enhances the visual impression of a plug, is glossy black and bears the Louis Vuitton logo. All in all a simple looking, but very nice bottle, where you could only miss a few of the typical Louis Vuitton patterns worked into the glass.

Soo, that was Sun Song by Louis Vuitton. A beautiful fragrance, which has some disadvantages. On the one hand there would be the very low Sillage and durability, with it one must live with citric smells mostly, that's just so, but this one seems to be particularly weak, about like the citric smells of Tom Ford as for example Mandarino di Amalfi. And then it is also the case here that the scent smells really nice, but does not differ significantly from many other Neroli/lemon scents or even stands out from them. So everybody has to know for himself if she or he wants to use such a fragrance.

That's why I don't think the price of 270 Euro for 100 ml is really appropriate, but it's always a matter of whether you want to spend so much on a fragrance if it can't stand so little. If you really like it, well, then why not? The main thing is to have fun :)
I myself got the Mandarino di Amalfi from Tom Ford (from the souk, but still :D), and it doesn't last much longer, only I like its smell better and the Tom Ford has the advantage, that it's also available in 30 mL bottles, where you don't have to pay for a whole 100 mL canister :D

As I said, these kinds of scents, no matter if from TF or LV, are price-performance-wise considered really under all sows, but at least they smell really nice, therefore the Sun Song can be tested here quite times, because scented it is exactly one of these scents, which one can carry also from 40 degrees upwards :D And indeed of all, because it is also absolutely unisex.

Well, that's that, then. I wish you all a nice evening :)

PS: A question for you ladies: Do you really spend 750 euros on a silk scarf? Okay, you might use something like that for a lifetime, but for a TUCH that you might be moving??? DDD

World Championship of the Pomeranians around the Sun Cup

- Whether the different representatives now represent the same weight class, remains to be seen, they had desire on the Pomeranzen WM.
- Win: the sun trophy!

Let's go to the Nerolisprint.

Right from the start "Neroli Portofino Acqua", "Mandarino di Amalfi Acqua" and the "Mugler Cologne" can set themselves apart. The Neroli is right there, the top note motors are running at full speed.
Halfway through the race, the race to catch up gets underway. "Sun Song," "Le Vestiaire - Saharienne"
and also the Ferrari come slowly in bloom distillate drive and gain a lot.

However, a delayed braking point allows the Italian racehorse to drive straight ahead in Ambrox curve 1. Considering the fact that the price is quite sensational here, "Bright Neroli" takes a very respectable 6th place in this weight class. An icon that also smells a little like an "icon" - winner of the internal Dunhill 2015 elimination. Respect.

A capital engine failure prevents the "Mugler Cologne" from making any progress - all in all a bit weak-chested, the Morillas-Eau de Toilette has no chance at the end of the day and ends up in 5th place. And that in the concert of the big ones! Top.

Now the concert of the Zitrusfruchtgranden is getting close. "Sun Song" confronts the established with a broad citrus base - in the form of Cavallier-Belletrud´scher Zedrat-Zitrone, also
Called the cedar apple. The Vuitton is bright and bright, fruity and fresh at the same time. He is simply cheerful and beautiful and always spreads a good linear mood. However, "Sun Song" - like his opponents from the house of Tom Ford - has his condition problems. Whether it doesn't do with the price then also a Ferrari, everyone must decide for himself, the Anderssein approach with the cedar fruit succeeds only conditionally.
In the end, "Sun Song" gives his driver a good fourth place. The lemonite lemon is not dynamic enough against the (synth-)bitter orange neroli of the other representatives.

"Neroli Portofino Acqua" says goodbye with a poor shelf life and cheers for the bronze medal before it goes to the final straight with Amalfi and Saharienne.

Here, "Mandarino di Amalfi Acqua" wins in front of the YSL branch because of its somewhat more creative approach within the World Championship and receives the sun trophy radiantly. For me, that's a little fresh herb sour that makes the final difference. Saharienne has some Neroli-PS more in the tank than the Fords, a bit more positive than N. Portofino A.

So the unequal comparison for "Sun Song" doesn't even end as sobering as I feared and Louis V. may at least sing the sun song during the award ceremony of the Sonnenpokalgekührten, while I like to wait for the water of the sun Positanos.

Neroli, bergamot and some musk. Fresh, pleasant and well blended, but also made by many many others. Too expensive for what you get.
