Whose turn is it to get wood?!
A summer evening in 1988, ten young guys around a campfire, in the open air, on the banks of a river. The small town where they are at home and with it the everyday madness is only a few kilometres away. Not far away there is a large area of forest. Two crates of beer have been placed in the water on a particularly shallow part of the riverbank for the purpose of sustainable and above all environmentally friendly cooling. A bottle of vodka is handed from man to man. The filling level of the bottle decreases rapidly with each round of the campfire. A small ghetto blaster provides the appropriate musical setting. The mood is very good to exuberant according to the occasion. The social group is worried because the campfire is gradually getting smaller, which warms body and soul. The former is an effect not to be underestimated with regard to the recently enjoyed nightly bath in the rather cool river. Stealthy glances at the wood storage place lead to the sobering realization that there is no firewood left. Finally Torsten takes heart and takes the initiative. He raises his chin, looks reproachfully and demandingly into the round and asks:
"Whose turn is it to get wood?" "
After a few seconds of pointing at the person sitting next to me and hurried "Hey, I've already got today" shouts, the eyes rest on one of the two Jens' present. Jens resignedly lowers his head, stands up awkwardly and moves towards the edge of the forest. His best buddy Frank gets up shortly afterwards and staggers after: "Hey, old man! Wait, I'm coming with you!"
"He who is closer to the fire will warm up faster", says a Hungarian proverb. Fortunately, it hasn't become socially accepted until now to light a fire immediately, if one craves for its calming effect for body and soul - and this is exactly where "Replica - By the Fireplace" comes into play.
The fragrance starts out loud and clear on the masculine side, with a spicy note, which is dominated by pink pepper and juniper and of course lots of smoke. As simple as it may seem, but it smells plain and simple like around a campfire or like outerwear after a stay at one, especially the next morning - but in a pleasant way. Sounds strange, but it is so.
However, you shouldn't be deceived by this, as With the drydown By the Fireplace delivers a fabulous twist. Within a few minutes the synthetic, but also soft and musky note of cashmeran and a sweet vanilla are added. If you frown and wonder how sweet vanilla doesn't smell, you might want to try "Just Rock" and wait a quarter of an hour. And indeed, this sweet vanilla, rounded off with a balsamic note, gives the impression of holding a stick of marshmallows over the fire that has just been lit. At the latest here, By the Fireplace clearly opens itself to the lovers of feminine fragrances, almost taking their side. The chestnut, which is often mentioned, I can perceive only very easily in the background.
Overall, the fragrance ultimately remains sweet and woody, enriched with a spicy note. This makes it wearable in autumn and winter, but also on cool spring and in my opinion even summer evenings. Also as a date fragrance it will not cut a bad figure on the side of both sexes.
After about one to two hours of stronger projection By the Fireplace becomes significantly quieter and after six to seven hours of close up.
So if you like sweet, woody, smoky and yes - gourmand scents, you should take a nose full and will not regret it, I'm sure!
