Fruit salad from the molecular kitchen?
That's odd. A more general search for the name of the fragrance leads me to the Polish Wikipedia, to a place in the northern part of Cyprus called Kythrea in the German version. The Google translator wants to recognize the name as a Swahili word, but still does not have a translation ready. And the manufacturer says that the fragrance refers to the "Hummelflug", a popular piece from the opera "Das Märchen vom Zaren Saltan" by Nikolaj Rimskij-Korssakow, which is otherwise unknown (at least in this country). Not even Valery Gergiev and his Marjinsky troupe have recorded the work - and in the past decades they have truly rendered outstanding services to some backbenchers of the Russian repertoire.

The mentioned "Hummelflug" will be briefly mentioned as a piano version on the provider page. Thus a composition by a master in dealing with orchestral colours is literally forced into black and white. It's all very mysterious. I wonder what the perfumer makes of it...?

A chemical-aquatic-maritime prelude with a vanilla-anise touch, like baking aroma. The indication 'honey' also indicates the origin of the acrid sweetness. A lonely, waky lemon has to fight hard. Fruits? That would then be a very special one, above all, beyond the already proposed 'melon'. Namely Maria's special new breed 'Helione'.

And while we're at "with -one": The main role in today's molecular cuisine is probably played by 'Calone', because in the morning breeze that swells into the dominating air, I feel increasingly saddened after my aniseed thoughts. At least it doesn't get brackish - at least something. There (*review*) perhaps vanilla amber helps, a corresponding creaminess and sweetness can be diagnosed. Now I'm waiting for the beeswax. Uh, like now: Bee? I thought we were with bumblebees! Anyway, I'm waiting in vain anyway. Honey, however, as a source of sweetness in the afternoon is somehow okay again. I always find it difficult to perceive other things nuanced under this sea stuff and the fact that the evening low tide today exposes a clear musk ground is a weak consolation. That's why this is...

...not my construction site. But at least the scent is well wearable, because it doesn't get brackish.

I thank Yatagan for the rehearsal.
