...and yet he reminds me of old times. He reminds me of my great-grandmother, my "Bohemian grandmother"
The smell when you visited her, the small living room-kitchen, the small, full bedroom,
where only one person could walk, let alone stand in it. A - for me as a child back then - huge
Wardrobe made of high gloss cherry, a huge double bed, a small chest of drawers and a window.
You came in and could jump into this huge bed right away. Flop........ and off you went, because the pillows and blankets were so thick in former times, that you could only be seen with the tip of your nose.
Self-crocheted pot holders in the form of little dresses, toilet paper dolls that you put over the toilet roll to make it look a little more elegant, although everyone knew what was hidden under the little dress.
The smell of warmth and coffee, of old and tenderness, of security and love, of "I can do anything today" and full of old stories. Arms in which you could cuddle up and a loving look that whispered with the blink of an eye: "I love you my little one". Phew, I've got a few tears in my eye now... hachz.
Mauboussin is all that. Sparkling and cheerful, the citrus scents burst into your nose as if you were just the
Grate the peels of lemon and orange. Not sour, but sweetish, tangy. Plum, a plump, dark purple, which almost falls from the tree when it is ripe, if there were not hands to pluck it beforehand.
Flowering jasmine, buds of ylang-ylang that are about to burst open, a velvety, bright red rose with its pointed thorns. You walk barefoot across a meadow that was previously used as a sunbathing area for sun worshippers. Grated grass, a bit of earth, green-mossy-earthy. A little woody, but warm. My hated sandalwood, which just fits into this scent, so it doesn't get too trollish, oily. My, words, they don't exist, but they just bubble out. A warm, fruity ambergris scent that dares to dance the evening away with the beautiful vanilla freshly scraped from the pod. Everything, everything together is so wonderfully full of memories. A warm, slightly sparkling scent that somehow reminds one of the 80s. A scent worth testing.
