"This is you!"
He was regarded as the enfant terrible of Italian haute couture and shared this title for years with the Frenchman Jean Paul Gaultier - Franco Moschino, exceptional talent and revolutionary, self-ironic "court jester" and ambassador at the same time, who with his extraordinary, provocative yet always wearable creations defied the establishment.

Moschino, who had learned and worked for Versace, resisted following the laws of the fashion industry throughout his short life - he accused it of decadence and grotesqueness, unconditional greed for profit and roped parties, and yet the more he scolded it, the more fervently he was loved, praised and roared with celebration.
And in rare sincerity deeply mourned when he, only 44 years old, died in September 1994 from the consequences of HIV infection.

Among those who mourned was I.
I had liked him, this wild boy, who could have been Freddy Mercury's sibling, so strikingly their resemblance seemed to me in some pictures.
I liked the casual non-seriousness of his clothes, the winking rascal grin, the denim jacket printed with peace symbols and hearts, for which I had to spend more money than I could actually afford.
I liked the belt with the golden letters, which bore his name, which a handful of friends had given me for my birthday and which still lies in my cupboard today, although it hasn't fitted me for a long time.
And what I liked best, what I liked most of all, was his fragrance, the first, the only one that was ever something like a signature, which I bought again and again over the years.

I was 19 when we met, "Moschino" and me.
It was the time in my life when almost everything was green-white-red, a coffee was only good if it was called espresso or cappuccino, the biscuits were called cantuccini, amarettini maybe still.
Pizza and pasta were staple foods, a fragrance per se noteworthy if it only came out of the boot.
My style icon was a head shorter, native Venetian with a penchant for high heels in which I could not even stand, let alone walk at her pace.
One day she brought him to Giuseppe's tiny trattoria, where we often met, put him on the table in front of me and said: "That's you!"

And she seemed to be right about that.
Never before and seldom afterwards was I so often spoken to about a fragrance, I was associated with it as much as on the countless days I wore "Moschino" afterwards.
"When I reached my desk after a thirty-minute walk in the morning, dishevelled by the wind and coiffed by the weather, I was told two open office doors away.
"Moschino" was, although not a sledgehammer, powerful and durable, it remained from early morning until late at night.
He wrapped me in warm glow, in old dark gold, in velvet, brocade and terracotta.
He straightened my back and shoulders, set my feet firmly on any surface.
A fragrance like a palazzo, timeless, noble, of morbid elegance - crumbling frescoes, flaking plaster, an old Michelangelo on the ceiling.

"Moschino" snuggles up, but doesn't cuddle, doesn't cuddle - the warmth it radiates is never deceptive about corners, points, edges, about resistance and obstinacy.
It bears the signature of its creator, its namesake - despite all the owlish mirroring and all the capers, Franco Moschino always placed great value on true value, not only the monetary value, be it in his clothes or in this fragrance.
And perhaps now, a good three decades later, it is time for flacon number six.

A great Oriental who really has guts
Moschino. In the fragrance world, that's a brand that hasn't made the very biggest breakthrough.
In the fashion world, yes, but there I think there are better things.
The fragrance here, however, is quite great.
He opens with a tart galbanum note and the freesia loosens that up a bit.
Really a strong start. And the remaining course is also good. A floral-spicy heart then shows itself.
Ylang-ylang, gardenia, garden carnation and rose I can make out.
Great, after the somewhat austere, or rather tart, start.
The base is a bit sweeter and solid.
This is because there is a vanilla note.
Overall, I find the fragrance of Moschino in the field of oriental fragrances very good, because it also reveals fresh and at least green seeming notes. A quite tart fragrance that also sometimes, slightly smoky smells, at least in my perception.
The whole thing is also still sold at fair prices, I think.
He is worth a test in any case

What the hell?
... a year ago at the airport in Palma I met a smell of my storm and urge time again: Moschino !
Short sprayed and wifffff:
As special as then. Velvet dry, with dignified elegant Kawumm-

too especially to be vulgar or intrusive or too much to work.
At that time, as in this moment, a dream fragrance, sensual without being sexy, round without being too muckelig, oriental-spicy without being too spicy..., a touch of green alchemy without being too leafy.
Minimal warm without being too cuddly...
Just great.
Well
Blind as winter scent ordered to give my Actually z zt only - almost always - scent Balenciaga Paris a break - because for me it means spring until late summer and I am afraid of scent blindness and because Moschino simply at the airport
good (memory) feelings.

Now the package ripped open...
A sprayer in the air on s Kleenex..
Irritated... what's that?
It almost smelled fruity? Can't be
Perhaps once again the Vapo operate and immediately on the skin.
It doesn't trigger what I experienced on the PMU.
Rather the association of an imho nerve scent : Obsession!!!
Help!
Had unbelievingly followed the Kommis here the Obsession as a Duftzwilling named and exactly that I feel right now also! Obsessions something more discreet elegant sister!

If I hadn't before a
Year Moschino in Pmi tested and so grandiosely felt like 1989 then I would mean, I would have transfigured smell memory, or now simply another ' taste '!

Was today just the wrong day? 12 hours of KITA, team meeting, and parents' evening... Overexcited and saturated.

Like when I tested Balenciaga Paris I couldn't understand its popularity and description, which I found quite lovely and auvh louder than afterwards.
...which I have appropriated today as a companion that makes me happy? And I'm terribly complicated about scents.

I'm at a loss and will still give Moschino two chances..
I want (the old baaaamg so much)

But I'm really sad that he doesn't seem to do anything for me anymore, except to have to worry that he meets me in the face and annoys me...
My idea: Can it be that before 1 J in Palma the (still) one or a shelf place had vintage bottles, or whatever there?!

Or is sometimes reformulated annually around its own axis.
The special, somewhat medically unwarm- resinous and exquisite is missing me (today) totally...
What the hell???
Meanwhile I smell nothing more at Kleenex and arm - totally knocked out.
Only my son says, joa smells good but for the small children in kindergarten not so, because too obtrusive...
* aaaargh*. Saltindie wound.
And yes he should be more f the private hours ;)

Double Yum
My favorite Moschino: I adore Orientals and this one has that rare mix that smells wonderful on my skin. I adore Patchouli (in the right amount!) and this Moschino happens to deliver just that. A wonderful silage and a powdery dry down that always lures you with a hint of Patchouli! Wonderful!

Spicy and clean perfection
For years now I have been passing this fragrance by on the stores, I never had any curiosity to try it, though I really love Moschino as a house and I really respect them for their unpretentious, simple and quality creations. So come months earlier I suddenly got my hands in small of bottle of this classic 80's scent, and oh what a pleasant surprise!
I agree that this is spicy and soapy at the same time, a perfect combiination for cold winter days as the spiciness warms you up and the soapiness gives a clean feeling. You can immediately feel this comes from the glorious 80's, it has a loudness, it has a character. I cant feel the floral notes but i believe they are there to subdue the strong spices. I enjoy so much wearing it, probably my most wearable for the last months..
I think I will always have a bottle of it in my collection.
