Hello hello and welcome to read something new from me again this evening. Hey, sooo unpopular, as I thought, I'm apparently not, hmm... because I have so many fans! Hmm... I should shoot YouTube videos, like perfume reviews or something, he he he :DD
(And I'm already conceited!)
Anyway, today I'm talking about the latest scent from Narciso Rodriguez. It is "For Her Pure Musc" from the Musc series, of which there are already a lot of fragrances. For those of you who don't know: Musc means musk in French. In dictionaries there is beside musk among other things also the term musk animal. This is helpful for idiots like me, because I used to think (much earlier!!!!) that musk was "any" flower... and somehow I always had the image of a flower with purple flowers in mind, but don't ask me why. I didn't even know that some scents like musk or amber came from the animal kingdom and I thought that everything that was scented was somehow only of flowery origin... yes laughs only, I had no idea :D
So, now that we all know what musk is, I come to the smell!
At the beginning I smell flowery scents, which I cannot identify (but which smell of the white flowers I have just mentioned), as well as sweet musks. The musk is intense and, as the fragrance name already suggests, somehow actually comes across more pure and thus seems more animal than in many other fragrances. But anyone who normally doesn't like animal scents can still sniff it out here, because the animal scent is smellable, but not as strong as with other animal scents such as Zibet or Bibergeil. Because apart from musk, I also like the other animal scents rather less, even if they should smell somewhat similar to musk.
Anyway, you can smell a beautiful musk scent, combined with white flowers and now also with soft powdery scents in the background.
Much later it smells more like floral notes, as the white flowers either become more intense or the musk gradually fades. In any case, the musk is now more in the background, but still gives a nice sweetness. In addition, the fragrance is and remains gentle and soft until the end.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is above average. So this means that for a while it will be good to smell from close up. The shelf life is quite okay with seven to eight hours.
The bottle is rectangular as always, with a shield-like shape inside, where the white, milky colour is and where the scent liquid is also filled. As usual, the name and the brand are written directly on the bottle, without a label being used. The cuboid lid is black and slightly shiny. All in all just as beautiful as the red, black or pink bottles of Narciso Rodriguez.
Sooo... first the bad news: The fragrance is not a world novelty, nothing groundbreaking or otherwise a fragrance that would quickly stand out from other (well made) musk fragrances. It also has no real recognition feature, since it smells quite similar to other fragrances.
This all sounds pretty negative now, right? Wrong! Because it does something that every fragrance should do: it simply smells good. Pretty good, actually. Of course, it is difficult to decide for the scent if you already have some musk scents or similar scents, but in my opinion there is nothing wrong with this one, so that a test would be worthwhile in any case. Especially for those who want to experience the musk note a little more intense, pure and a little more animal.
It can then be worn as an all-rounder, because it is neither too light nor too heavy, so that it could be used well as a scent of the day at any time of the year, but also for going out. Although he is actually quite okay in terms of sillage, I would have wished for him to be a little stronger for going out. In any case you look quite nice with it (yes yummy and so too, already good :D) and also very sexy.
Soo... then I'm back at the end and wish you all a nice evening! And don't laugh so much about the fact that I used to think musk was flowers...! DD
