Spin the wheel of fortune
I was spinning my wheels! Everything was confused, so a jumble and now: Täterätä: Here comes your Magic Circus!
I do not start from the beginning, because that would be too confused, but start at the moment when Magic Circus in the course of a mutual blind exchange here in the forum, reached me after a long day at work. In typical enthusiasm of a perfume addict, I couldn't wait to spray on the hotly anticipated new addition, the pyramid sounded so exciting and so did your statements. Quickly I cut open the package, picked out the box, from it again the noble casket and there it was, the imposing black bottle - I sprayed and - what was that?! That was horrible! Completely different from what I expected with a ton of this unbearable artificial oud scent plus some other equally unbearable artificial stuff, this artificial sandalwood or whatever, all of which wasn't in the pyramid - I could barely stand it for five minutes, it was that bad. How can one write such idiotic pyramids, I cursed inwardly!
I texted my swap partner that the scent was there, but it contained, so literally, notes I hadn't expected. It wasn't her fault, I didn't have to spin the wheel of fortune and initiate a blind swap. It was my own fault. I was completely frustrated, I liked this scent a hell of a lot worse than the one I had given away for it. Disappointed, I went to sleep.

The next day I wanted to offer the fragrance adhoc to the exchange and looked, how much exactly was still in it, I stumbled: What was on it? There was MiN and then: Voodoo. And in a flash it was clear to me: A mix-up! That was not Magic Circus! Yippee!
So the wheel of fortune turned with the help of the post office again back and again there and it was complicated, because in the Magic Circus mistakenly not sent from the outset was also much more in it than in the Voodoo.
So the Magic Circus lived up to its name.

Now I really have it, and I like it very much. But curiously, I continue to wonder about the details in the pyramid, which seems to me to be a bit enchanted:
The performance begins with a fog machine being fired up and several barely visible pineapples', and bergamots in a slightly medicinal pepper haze being made to disappear in a flash with a drum roll. Under the white fogged black cloth, the ghost now slowly rises from the bottle, slips amazingly nimbly out from under it and becomes a giant! The air is filled with his flair of light resin and dry wood with a hint of extinguished fire and incense. At first it seems solid in stature and entwined with earthly vanilla, but as it grows larger and unfolds, spreading into the room, it becomes more transparent. It is translucent but does not lose intensity, only density. It is a good spirit that knows how to fascinate the audience. He is amber soft and mild and yet the crowd is amazed. When he disappears very slowly at the end, people look around in irritation: oh, the performance lasted a whole 8 hours? Hesitantly the crowd disperses. Even the next day, quite a few still feel the fascination of yesterday's performance at the Magic Circus: Wasn't there still a hint of amber and dry, spiced wood?

And if someone's path happened to lead them to the circus again, they'd also see the sign: spin the wheel and try your luck:
Performance 1: Horror Spell Modern Voodoo: Master MiN.
Performance 2: Genie with Fruit Conjuring Spell: Master MiN.
Next month:
Performance 3: Magic Fruit Dance with Wood Conjuring Spell: Master Frapin 1270.

Nouveau Gourmand
Today I am enveloped within the exquisite embrace of MiN’s brilliant Magic Circus. The air outside is infused with a Skaðian breath of ice and glacial chill and I've found myself in need of irrevocable warmth and comfort. The only thing within my collection which seemed to have the ability to satiate my desire for nostalgic amenity was this, an undeniably beautiful aria of both sweet fairground confections and a masterfully balanced base of harmonious resins, woods and diaphanous musk, The opening smells of cotton candy which has been dusted with a scintillating fuchsia sparkle of pink pepper. There is the definite aroma of freshly candied nuts as well as just a touch of geranium which acts as a novel juxtaposition to the confiserie-chic aura that dominates the incipience of this elixir. As it dries down you are greeted with the warm nuzzles of a supremely gratifying blend of dulcet musks and airy, gossamer amber. This is easily one of my favourite gourmand fragrances, an ideal example of how with a virtuose hand can elevate a genre which is generally rife with the saccharine and unimaginably cloying. Bravo MiN!
