I am, grant me the request, the third in your league. (Schiller)
I am not really a "real" collector. I have perfume because I like the scent and because I wear it. Some bottles I find really outstanding, but I wouldn't buy a fragrance just because of the bottle. Wouldn't I?

Now for the first time I couldn't resist: What was it that caught my eye while rummaging through perfume? A third bottle, similar in design to my recently exchanged, quirky bottle beauties Honey and Dot, but unknown, never consciously caught my eye, and adjusted. I guess that means it won't get any easier to get it over time Only one statement on Parfumo and only six owners of this impressive rarity.

In the Patchouli Pyramid! That's half the battle for me. And what else should be in it? Lily. Great! Bergamot. Always goes, always goes! Vanilla. Yeah, there's a lot, but I like it too. Violets. Well, that can be a divine, nostalgic, noble dream or muff I can hardly stand; at worst, however, pungent artificial violet leaf.
Conclusion: the promising clearly prevailed.
I went looking for it and ordered Violet
As in the bail of Schiller, the way to me for the good Violet turned out to be very difficult. She came by sea and initially could not get away because of thundering water. For two days she had to capitulate to storms and floods until a ship took her ashore. I almost handed over her friend Dot to her safe exit in a barter game. Gone would have been her, the Dot.

But then Violet hurried to the rescue!
First of all the shock of spraying on: Sweetness!
I had not expected this. How's that? I have nothing against sweetness per se, but unfortunately, here in my nose it's pungent Malta sweetness. Oh, let it diminish as the day goes on
Vanilla appears immediately. Where is the promised bergamot of the top note? None of it. Now here's something I was counting on: Violet leaf, fortunately the pleasantly soft and rather powdery kind.
And so the scent remains for many hours, very maltosweet, a little bit of nice vanilla and more and more... and more and more powdery violet leaf and garment- still slightly pungent in my nose. Admittedly, the stinging later on is less until the base of sweet-powdery violet-leaf vanilla remains, which becomes drier and drier and more powdery over many more hours.
That's not bad, but a little boring, and for me with the wrong kind of sweetness. I also suspect a jiggly dose of musky scent that makes the vanilla so dust-dry. I often had the thought whether I perceive this kind of sweetness and also certain musk scents so much stronger than other people that other scents are sometimes completely overshadowed. It fits to this assumption that no bergamot, no patchouli, no lily appears during the whole process.

Well? Compared to Violet, I have learned to appreciate both the wonderfully happy Honey and the lovable character head Dot once again.
For my nose, Violet is by far the least attractive of the three The bottle, however, with its iridescent shimmer of pearls, suggests much more iridescent sophistication than the contents can make real
Right? I just asked my husband what he thought of the scent and he said: "Beautiful! I like it! Fruity!" I kept my game face and said, "What else? What else do you smell?" He took another nose and said: "Nothing, just fruity." I'm afraid that with Violet it is even more important than it already is to form an opinion about herself.

And so it ends differently now than it did in Schiller's bail: Violet will probably end up in the exchange game or in the souk at some point - despite the truly impressive bottle.

Then there are only two left.
