A touch of powder for that wow feeling
I got the scent from a magazine sample. As a subscriber I got an 8ml sample for free, but exactly in that week we had bought our house. And whoever has ever bought an old house knows that not only the purchase but also the preparation costs real money. Money, which is then missing for perfume.
I wore this wonderful fragrance for Christmas and wanted to put it on my wish list for the coming year.
I used the sample quite sparingly and swore to buy the perfume again. With 20, 30 Euro I would not have thought, but the 70 Euro would have been missing somewhere
Half a year later, everything was set up, the biggest alterations were done and the account was out of the woods (i.e. everything was paid for and everything was light and airy), a branch of the local perfumery was closed and merged with a larger one. Consequently there was a 50% discount and there I saw it, the perfume of my desire: The big bottle of the perfume I had been adoring for half a year. In the few minutes of the lunch break I grabbed Narciso's edpp, took Noa from Cacharel (I have a weakness for offers) and hurried home with my treasure in the evening
Surely I will have used up a third of the fragrance, and as much as I like it, it is not a fragrance for me for every day. That's not even the price, I've already seen it for about 40 Euros in duty free.
Its great strength is also its great weakness: this powdery nature does not always suit me, not to me. I love powdery scents, and he laid the foundation for my second love next to oriental scents. But as much as I love him, sometimes he really gets on my nerves, I need variety. But I guess we're all pretty much alike here. :-)
I find the bottle very tasteful, this restrained and at the same time elegant. In addition there is this wonderful powdery colour, in whose tone I have long and unsuccessfully searched for processes for my make-up room (in the end it became the pink from the normal edp). With these simple shapes, I find it hard to do the splits, to be stylish and not boring - but the solid-colored bottle is a feast for the eyes and fits wonderfully on my make-up table.
The smell is a bit strong for me at first, I perceive quite a lot of alcohol. But with the time it evaporates, leaving behind a cloud of powder whose musk is very harmonious without taking someone's breath away. Some musk scents seem cheap, synthetic and are literally breathtaking - Narciso is different. It is creamy, soft and enveloping, but dry with a floral quality at the same time. Depending on the state of the day I smell different components, which makes the fragrance so exciting.
Interestingly, I have never received a comment for him - no praise, no blame. Probably he even gets lost in everyday life, but gives me an incredible wow feeling. With him I feel like an actress from the old days, who was dusted with a huge powder puff and who men only wave at from afar because she seems to float above everything above the ground.
Maybe that's why the fragrance hasn't become an everyday scent, it's too special for me to get lost in any everyday life. I do not consciously spare it, but only at special moments I use it gladly and consciously. It doesn't even have to be the big entrance (although I always wear it at artistic performances, as it gives me self-confidence), but also on days that seem to be difficult or when I take my husband out for dinner. It's like the expensive handbag that's too good for everyday life - although I find it a pity to save things like perfume, since the risk of tipping over is omnipresent.
Therefore I use it on days when I feel like it and wear it with pride and draw a part of my aura out of it. It has a good durability, which is why it does not need to be replenished during the day - which is also helpful on important and stressful days at work.
It is one of those fragrances that enriches my life and I wouldn't want to be without it. I like to buy new fragrances, and when they are empty, others come - but this one and Noa are essential (and Noa absolutely must be bought again, because there is only a hint of nothing left).
If you go for an elegant powderiness, this fragrance will do everything right. I hope it will stay with us for years - for me it is the only wearable NR fragrance for ladies. Not for girls, not for hipster ladies - it's a women's perfume and for me it doesn't go with any jeans, but it does go with a black dress and a black handbag, although ballerinas are sometimes allowed as a break in style for the perky one. :-)
