Blindsided...
Paris, Place Vendôme on a cool autumn morning - temple of all capital hedonists who, despite every yellow vest movement and social empathy, are unable to detach themselves from their lifelong passion for luxuriously beautiful objects. Here in the crucible of vanity, there is no room for understatement.

Perhaps Mauboissin's fame stems precisely from the fact that they have always operated in the shadow of Boucheron and Cartier, always seeming a little more down-to-earth - I almost want to say "German" - than their competitors, without, of course, denying their Parisian ease.

Nevertheless, this was never the very first port of call for princesses from the Emirates, or nouveau riche Russian women, but rather for upper middle-class ladies who wanted to afford something now and then. The crisis in the jewellery industry therefore hit the traditional jeweller a little harder than the top dogs. In the meantime, they reside a few streets away, in the Rue de la Paix.

I have often purchased smaller pieces of jewelry there - not as gifts, not to wear, but just to look at. Perhaps it is due to my very poor provenance that the sparkle of the stones and the sublime sheen of the gold still fascinates and soothes me so much today, even more so when they come together in such timeless elegance as at Mauboussin.

Except for the outer packaging, this pour lui in black has nothing - but nothing at all - in common with the legacy of Mauboussin, although the wonderful deep black bottle actually suggests this, because it does manage to recall the equally black flap cases of the Mauboussin jewels.

What a cheeky top note rises to my nose? Caramel with mint accompaniment, and would one be malicious could even describe it as "toothpaste in the Caramel Macchiato", but would not do it complete justice, because it nevertheless boldly pleases, and so rather irritating than repulsive.
Quite quickly, the fragrance slides into an infinite March violet bed, but comes across as anything but shy and reserved, but rather like a little, cheeky girl, who sits down on a park bench bluntly next to you, and begins to babble. You can not be angry with him, although it already seems quite penetrating.

Mauboussins pour lui in black belongs in a rank with Moschinos Uomo, could almost be the little sister of the latter - not because of the fragrance profile, but because of the relentless openness. Forget any form of adulthood. With both fragrances, wild teenage parties start that don't give a damn about quiet times.

After quite a while, the violet girl smiles at me. She's a little calmer now, but doesn't make the slightest move to get up and go home. I'm less outraged by this than I am by Boucheron's Pour Homme EdP on my other wrist, which, with its cultured, aristocratic citrus aromas, seems much more complex, quite different, and more deliberate. Here just worlds collide.

I can recommend Mauboussins pour lui in black nevertheless not really. I at least would not like to smell like that. As a blind buy, it is completely unsuitable. Rather to experiment for all those Parfumaficionados who already know all the fragrances anyway, and are always looking for a surprise.

Velvety polished violet profile
The first thing you can perceive is an intense fresh sweet fruity, very delicately tart note, which is surrounded by a light, discreetly cool shimmering, slightly fleshy greenish, typical minty note, which in my opinion ensures that the 'mandarin' is extremely soft, even the small hairs appear to be visible and thanks to the combination with mint.

These two notes are enveloped and at the same time surrounded by a slightly salty, slightly buttery, sweet, gourmand nuance that smells of liquid caramel candy that has already cooled down, which, despite its light consistency, gives the top note a pleasantly dense appearance and suggests 'caramel'
A little bit later the waxy aura has completely gone and the caramel, which now appears slightly warming and liqueur-like from the inside, merges with a very dense and also voluminous sweet floral note, which carries very bright and also clear, almost a little soapy, sweet floral accents and also a deep dark, even a little mystical looking cream~lotion-like side with it and I meant to perceive the use of 'Dark Violet' :-)

The violet is accompanied by a subtle, but nevertheless well-existent, slightly aromatic, ethereally herbaceous nuance, which in my opinion is responsible for the fact that the fragrance does not drift into the profane, but has a pleasant, freshly distinctive profile and I thought the use of 'clary sage', for "French sage" possible.

These two notes are interwoven by a very smooth and light appearing, very discreetly resinous wooden nuance, which also by me 'recognized' Virginia cedar is used in a very beautiful way and gives the fragrance creation the certain attractive velvety polished masculinity
In the last 4 hours, thanks to the benzoin, the fragrance becomes subtly creamy and delicate, slightly balsamic and discreetly powdery, almost transparent, smelling of warmed milk chocolate with vanilla foam, giving the base a pleasant cuddly effect.

At the same time, the benzoin is flanked by a penetrating veil of 'wild rose', which can be guessed at a black-red rose blossom and its dark wood, and is led by a very tender, nobly used, but nevertheless seductive 'patchoulised' earthy-sweet nuance to the perfect end of the fragrance.

In total the fragrance lasts 8 hours on my skin.

The Sillage is designed from the beginning to a clearly perceptible whole arm length of 4.5 hours before it is reduced in very quiet steps until the fragrance is finished.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to our perfume "Honk1510" for the bottling.

This scent is an example of a typical modern black fragrance. A bit dark, more or less oriental and quite sweet. A good design & a safe buy!

Salted, sweet, and bitter... what an unexpected scent! It begins with caramel note, turns into flowery violet, and lasts as a bitter gaiac!
