4ajbukisja. Or: Orient meets Occident. A hint of home
4ajbukisja was a belly dancer.
And she was beautiful, the most beautiful young woman in her home village, it was later to be said.
Even when she had her hair cut tomboyishly short at the nape of her neck to a few millimeters and growing longer towards the top (up to three centimeters), and she was of slender stature, one perceived her femininity from a few meters away. Today, twenty years later, one would perhaps take note of her appearance without any emotion.
Perhaps - for she is no more.
She, whose appearance left no one cold: her belly dance in the kindergarten of 4ajbukoshka, who is a little ashamed of her, but then let herself be carried away.
4ajbukisja is wrapped in colorful scarves, with which she plays around and decorates a bikini of Verena. Her belly undulates and makes wacky movements in all directions. She can, it seems, direct her hips and belly with her hands and has bones made of rubber.
The song for the performance, Tarkan's "Şımarık," 4ajbukoshka will repress for a long time, storing it in the back of her mind as "Mwah mwah" and muttering "Tshinga dadinga tshickahaha..." when someone asks, couldn't be more Occidental. And yet, it's actually Turkish.
A hint of vanilla blows around 4ajbukisja as soon as their dance kicks in - leaving the audience as the last audience member, after a thunderous applause.

This performance was to be one of the last times 4ajbukoshka encountered her:

this non-classic for her, but regardless, exceedingly beautiful woman with the wavy black hair, the prominent, perfectly symmetrical eyebrows, and the subtle tan that her moles most likely still lend her.
She looks oriental - and yet she's not.
Actually, most of the time she tries her hardest to be as German as possible (if it wasn't for 4ajbukoshka's multilingual upbringing).
Her temper she can not always hide and so you often bite on granite or get the full broadside pepper in the face. A sweet (tangerine), she is not. She is a cheeky little fruit who uses her sweetness only sparingly: enough to turn men's heads, but not enough not to be taken seriously by everyone, women and men alike.
Next to her, the most radiant orchid looks pale, and even the fresh bouquets of flowers that 4ajbukoshka or many a suitor as well as many a suitor shyly hands her cannot drown her out.
She with vanilla skin and lips like rosewood.
4ajbukisja: a piece of the Orient in the Occident. One. Meter. Fifty-six. Full load of power.
Somehow she seems out of place wherever she goes: in the Orient she is Occident, in the Occident Orient. At home foreign.
She may give the appearance of calm and strength. What it is like inside, no one will ever know.

Isn't it usually the case that you take things for granted and that only changes when they are no more?
The monthly appearance of this one woman who is no more.
She had the evil eye, but a kind heart, somewhere beneath what you saw, smelled, heard.
And all that will remain in the future is the memory and the information "has been discontinued".

Full of character
Following in the footsteps of one of my favorite perfumers and notes, I found this cutie. The name says a lot about the character of this fragrance and it clearly has it, and not too little! Like many compositions of the nose I know, this perfume packs a punch! Yet it is an eau de toilette. The start is very strong, presence halt, overlooked (overbroken) is nothing here ... the more surprising was the subsequent silence, the fragrance has briefly become very quiet to then surprise all the more with a very dominant presence. So not for lovers of the quiet tones. It occurred to me when I smelled the fragrance: is probably designed like an accessory for a trouser suit wearing smoking power lady. So get rid of it again? Well, let's see... sometimes it doesn't hurt to want to appear sterner than you/woman are. Sheep in wolf's clothing, so to speak.... I guess the whole "austere" impression comes from pepper and woods, probably. The perfumer actually managed to create a juicy woody scent with a very subtle sweetness. A masterpiece in any case! The quality leaves nothing to be desired. For me, the whole thing also has a slight sexy touch. That is of course individually very different. By the way, in my opinion a man could also wear it well. Don't know how it looked back in 2002 with unisex fragrances. Am in any case glad that I got to know him

Unique, unknown, cheapie!
For me, it's borderline obnoxious but quite beautiful and comforting. It's interesting how Almairac's compositions have this dichotomous effect on me. Well, except for the case of Sculpture Homme by Nikos, that one I really can't stand. Despite that, I recognise its simplicity and uniqueness.

The fusion of citric notes and vanilla has that Almairac signature to it. I immediately knew this was created by him.

The composition is quite different from Sculpture, but the aura is there.
Feminine? A bit. Masculine? A bit. You get the point!

The ubiquitous presence of woman?
Women are just EVERYWHERE! Uh wait, first of all hello everybody :D
So... Women are just EVERYWHERE!!! Well, you have to admit that guys are everywhere... but guys don't scare you as much as when you are alone (or outnumbered) in a place where you women dominate!

Oh dear, I could get hysterical again, just because the name of the fragrance means something like "presence of a woman" here, and that only if I didn't translate the name completely wrong... just now in the new year I should be less annoying and more... uh... love you ladies? Oh, I don't know :D

But before I say anything completely wrong, I'd rather come to this Montblanc fragrance. But nevertheless my text here is certainly better than many a text from a fragrance manufacturer. This one says among other things that the fragrance would be suitable for all women who feel "exceptionally sexy and elegant". And now look for scent descriptions that say something similar! Well? What did you find? That's right! That's pretty much true of all sorts of women's scent descriptions, isn't it? He he :D
And if you are honest, this does not only happen with fragrances, but with all kinds of products, because of course a manufacturer has to write things like "The fragrance for the elegant woman of today" in order to sell the product, stupid that all this sounds very trite by now :D

As long as the fragrance (or product) does not suffer from it, that's fine. For crazy and stupid texts you have me here :DD
Well then, I'll get to the scent! Br />
A little later I continue to smell tangerines and pepper, and now I also perceive a little rose and woody notes. The woody notes here are soft and not sharp like cedar or something like that, so they smell more like sandalwood and the like. All this with a "dash" of vanilla, which later becomes a little stronger in the base.
In the base the fragrance is sweetish and peppery. It now smells mainly of vanilla with a touch of pepper, the citrus notes like tangerines have now almost completely disappeared. In addition, there are still woods as well as a low, earthy patchouli note.

The silage and the durability:*
The sillage is medium, so you can smell it for a little while at a short distance.
The shelf life is quite good at about seven to eight hours, although it is much weaker in the later hours.



It smells very feminine, and this although the pepper is always to be smelled. But the pepper is mild and therefore also has a pleasant scent. Apart from that, you ladies seem to like pepper very much anyway, why else do I keep hearing things like "Get lost! Go to where the pepper grows!!!",... *sigh* No wonder I never dare to ask anybody for a date, when you all get so angry :D

Anyway, as I said, the scent is worth a test, even though you wouldn't miss anything if you left the scent out. And, yes, have a good evening, everyone. And I... I really need to find out where that ominous place is where the pepper grows..

Presence d'Un Homme, not d'Une Femme
This is an incredible woody vanilla, more woody than vanilla to me. Unisex, more masculine than feminine on me, and so so very wearable by a guy. Just a bit of pepper to make it interesting. I don't sense any florals. It has a masculine edge to it that wears like cedar, harboring close to classic aftershave. It smells amazingly clean & uncomplicated, and it wears close to skin on me. I like it but not enough to keep it.

It's great office fragrance for either a man or a woman. For wood-loving fumies like @malegria, this is a must try!

Alternative review -

Presence is a very masculine fragrance for a feminine, in my opinion. It seems to me to have cedar in it, which always wears like aftershave on me. Or, perhaps it is the patchouli. Regardless, this is not one for flower-lovers. It's classified as an oriental vanilla, but it seems like a woody to me. Probably best for those who seek out non-floral fragrances.

The fragrance is solid & good, but definitely try this one before you buy this one. It's difficult to wear, and I think more men would wear it off-the-shelf than women. Unique bottle, though.
