MFK goes Designer
What a surprise when yesterday afternoon I found a strange envelope with the sender MFK from France. That's what I call a noble gesture, to make the more or less loyal customers happy with a free sample of the latest creation. Many a house could cut itself a slice there.
The very next morning the scent was applied. But what can I say, disappointment followed on foot. The fragrance starts right away with a strong presence that immediately reveals something pungent synthetic. The rose doesn't hesitate to clap me in the face, but strangely superficial without real depth. The idea itself of giving a rose a lightness of touch with citrusy-fruity chords is certainly not unoriginal. Usually it goes in the other direction with patchouli or oud. Especially from FK, who has created rose works of art like LNH or OSM, I would have expected an exciting realisation of this theme. But unfortunately, in my opinion, this lightness is turned into the opposite by exaggerated synthetics.
In the further course of time the rose fades away and the fruity aspects (grapefruit) gain more and more the upper hand. I also notice floral nuances here, as they are often found at FK.
After 3-4 hours at the latest, I have the feeling of having a designer fragrance from the lower price segment on my wrist. When I think about it, this annoying synthetic has already been intimated by Amyris Homme. In my opinion, the fragrance is just getting the hang of it there. But here it shows up bluntly.
Sorry, but that's not gonna work out between us
