So really... there I constantly complain in many comments that I'm always single and you can imagine that I don't have the slightest idea about love, and yet I test a scent that wants to tell us something about the "secrets of love", in this case about passion!
Quite honestly, there is the probability that I decipher all the secrets of the universe with its innumerable galaxies and universes completely alone without the slightest knowledge of astronomy and physics, many times higher than the probability that I can elicit even one single secret of love :D
But I can at least try to describe this scent as exactly as possible as always, but if it smells like love and so for me, too, ... well, as I said, I don't trust my opinion as much this time... unless I write something about cuddling cats, because I know a lot about it :DD
I smell oud and caramel at the beginning, the fragrance is generally extremely spicy and will therefore only please those who are into heavy spicy oriental fragrances.
Despite the heaviness of the fragrance, the fragrance does not appear too oppressively heavy, which is also due to the fact that it appears smoother and gentler through beautiful, resinous scents. For example cashmere, which is a soft fragrance anyway, and of course the resin benzoin, which makes this fragrance softer with its sweetish and incense-like, but softer fragrance. Both fragrances make the fragrance ri(e)chtig pleasant :D
Oranges are perhaps hinted at at the beginning, but they have no refreshing effect and appear slightly bitter in the background. However, the oranges quickly fade away again.
A little later it still smells of (light) Oud, as well as the beautiful, gentle scents. The sweet scents no longer only smell like caramel, but have a slightly fruity undertone and smell for me a little like the sweet scents of dried fruits.
Much later, however, the fragrance smells much spicier again, although you can still smell soft, resinous notes, along with sandalwood. By the way, the spicy fragrance also looks a little more mature.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage may appear somewhat strong at the beginning, but then it weakens quickly, which is perhaps due to the soft scents. In any case, I had the feeling that the majority of the fragrance's charisma is rather simple average and therefore doesn't have to be smellable at too great a distance.
I found the shelf life to be quite good with more than 14 hours.
The bottle is rectangular, but the upper part is rounded or arched. What is special about the bottle is that it is surrounded by a bronze-golden metallic shell, which is interspersed with punched-out decorations. The brand name was engraved on the side of the flacon or metal cover. It is finished with a gold-plated round lid. A very nice bottle!
Hmm... I find the scent pretty pleasantly fragrant. In the beginning it is a little bit overwhelming, because the oud is still quite strong and the scent is very exhausting especially in this summer heat. But then the soft notes come into play and make the fragrance nice and pleasant. It's still not suitable for summer, but it's not that overwhelming if someone wants to use it in summer. But I would use it best in autumn. A nice scent of the day that's also good for going out. But more for ladies, because the fragrance seems quite feminine to me as unisex.
So... does the scent smell like passion or love now?
Hmm... like I said, don't ask me, don't really...
I can only say what I always write about nice fragrant women's fragrances: Yes, it looks nice and "delicious", so that I would at least like to smell such a fragrance on a woman (although I could still do without the spicy part of the fragrance, even if it is smaller here), ... because this fragrance... oh... now it's coming... you can already think of it... partly quite bITE!
But well, what do I know about that? :DD
But you can try it sometime. Maybe not everyone's cup of tea, but he smells nice and comes in a great bottle!
