Fresher geht´s hardly
During my penultimate foray through the Düsseldorf perfumeries, I noticed at Beauty Affair that not only are Molinard's Eaux de Parfums from the violet Les Elements Collection available again, but that the range has been extended by three brand-new fragrances. Even so new that they are not yet presented on the official Molinard homepage.

These are the fragrances Citron Noir, Gingembre and Thé Basilic, which differ in their flacon design to such an extent that they are lighter in colour and the main theme is stylishly depicted. Since Thé Basilic seemed to me to be the most unusual of the combination, I wanted to take a look at it first.

Those who like their basil not only gustorically with tomato mozzarella or on Neapolitan pizza, but also or even just olfactorically, should come here to their special pleasure.

The fragrance starts, as expected, sparkling fresh with a relatively reserved mint and delicately sour citrus notes. But what dominates from the beginning is rich crunchy fresh natural basil as if it were picked directly from the plate and put in front of you.

As the name already suggests, tea is also involved, according to a more detailed description of plantations in Assam, to diminish the sweet freshness of basil as a small bitter counterpart and to give the light, cheerful composition a little more seriousness. Fits wonderfully.

If you immerse a little deeper into the composition, you will see traces of lavender and a tiny blackcurrant, which do not play an important role.

Slightly creamy musk offers a fine round finish at the end - like mozzarella with basil.

In the end, Thé Basilic is the perfect illusion, as if on a spring morning you would enjoy your bruschetta with fresh basil and a cup of Assam tea in a Mediterranean garden. The fragrance is not necessarily conceived as a compliment catcher, but it conveys an absolutely relaxed revelation of well-being for the cheerful days of life or to make yourself some. With regard to projection and durability, one also remains quite carefree.

In addition, you can again expect top quality from Molinard with a natural appearance and an excellent price-performance ratio. It is also hard to believe that the cap of the bottle is neither magnetic nor artistic in any other way, but perhaps a little simple. Apart from that, I can say with a clear conscience that Thé Basilic is probably one of the most appealing, authentic, fresh and green basil fragrances.
