i've seen this scent standing in strange bathrooms, with mothers of friends and grandmothers. Often it was the glass flacon with the pigeons on the lid, but I also remember faceted flacons.
My girlfriends and I didn't like using it. Too old-fashioned and too old-fashioned, he seemed to us. Back in those days, ages ago, Impulse deodorant was our best seller. We dieselled ourselves in from top to bottom with it. Several times a day and paved the way for LVeB. The changing rooms of the schools are still contaminated with deodorant residues.
L'Air du Temps, on the other hand, always seemed uninteresting to us. Too green, too much chypre, bitter, buzzing through my head.
Yesterday was a very hot day. A latecomer in the summer of the century and I was on my way to buy a little something and my husband the beloved Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. In the shelf of the shop stood then also this white flacon, a tester.
Even though the price of the bottle has certainly deteriorated, i.e. for the buyer, I really liked it. This plain white can, almost like the Impulse Deos... no, I didn't think of that. Really, I do.
I sprayed it on and found it very beautiful, flowery, fresh, really a white fragrance, only slightly bitter and not too bitter or strict. Not penetrating by white bloomers alone, but also nice and soft and spicy-sweet. Ylang Ylang I smell out and the carnation, whereby here not only the carnation, but also the clove smells. The fragrance is delicate powdery and quite neutral, almost cool. I sprayed 6 times, because it seemed so refreshing at the high temperature.
And I wasn't looked at stupidly at the cash register and the baker afterwards. The fragrance changed as it became softer and softer. A light powdery touch. I thought if it was so refreshing for me, then it would be something for the summer holiday and even the white, small, robust bottle could not get out of my head. No, I didn't have anything in mind for this summer So I went out at night and bought the scent. He's barely in town anymore. A mistake, I mean.
He's an excellent match for the spirit of the times. For some time now I have been observing a return to old values, an awareness of old values. Apparently some people are afraid of losing their culture because many different cultures mix, but one culture is in your heart and only you can pass it on to others and live it. If she's good, she'll win through. What is good is always accepted by others.
And that explains the long success of L'Air du Temps. What's good, prevails. Delicate, calm, light, floating, like two white pigeons whispering in the air.
The white dove is not only a sign of peace but also a symbol of wisdom. And that's going to prevail too.
So I'm looking forward to the summer holiday 2018 with the white can in my luggage. that's how it can go.
