The principle danger
I have a principle about perfume testing. Nothing is washed. Nothing!!! The curiosity is too great, what comes afterwards and too often the surprise was already big, what came along after a for my taste terrible top note nevertheless still pleasant. So far this has never been a special problem for me.

During the test of my filling of "Art" (today) this principle was put to a very hard test. Sillage and durability weakly evaluated and described in the comments as pleasant, easy and good-tempered, two decent "PFFTTTSSSSSSS" landed on my wrists.

A few minutes after that: Images of threateningly large anti-insect candles appear in my mind's eye, that must be the bergamot. Shortly afterwards the plum spreads, for a good 20 minutes. But this is not a rich, warm plum like in "Decadence", this is a hard, grumpy, cold and gloomy plum - one that looks at you evil and seems almost threatening. If Japanese plums really smell that way, I don't want to get anywhere near them, ever!

"You could do the dishes," it occurs to me, over and over again, every minute. "Look, the sink's almost there, soap too, it's okay if it doesn't fit at all. Others do what you read all the time."

I have my principles!!! Hold on. You can do it. Interlock your arms on your back, hold on!

To cut a long story short. Made it. After approx. 20 minutes the grumpy plum gets smaller and goes off.
What comes next reinforces my principle. That's really nice (yes, the word *g*). Delicate cherry, creamy. When Japanese cherry blossoms smell like this, then I simply leave the plums on the left in Japan and sit under the cherry tree. All the way! And really like :-)

Sillage harmless, totally.
Shelf life not good, after about 2 hours the cherries leave me too and I am far away from Japan and any fruit again (if it is in the base musk and cedar wood, then it is completely odourless in Japan).

There was nothing fresh about this scent. Good-humoured at most the middle part with the cherry, but that was too short for constant good mood ;-)

PS. For the sake of completeness I have to say that the bottling is according to the label from summer 2017 - the fragrance smells zero, but maybe the quality has already suffered a bit - otherwise it is simply due to my skin chemistry...
