A powdery thunder god?
Hey, guys, have a nice evening. I hope you're okay. Soon it will be Christmas, so I can already imagine that you might be a little under Christmas stress, maybe... but I still find Christmas beautiful and therefore was already several times at the Christmas market... yes, among other things, to eat me full ... but I digress :D

Today I come to a fragrance from the brand Odin New York. I like the brand name here very much, yes... because of Odin in the name. After all, Odin is the father of Thor. And before you leave now, let me assure you that I'm not thinking about Thor as a cartoon character now (although I have to admit that I think Thor is really cool! :D), but here more about all the mythological stuff that I think is so fascinating! However, the whole thing has absolutely nothing to do with the smell here...

Anyway, today I'd like to introduce the Petrana fragrance from this brand. Petrana sounds like a woman's name, and in fact it is a Greek woman's name. However, Petrana here refers to the Iris petrana, a type of iris that grows in Jordan and which represents the heart of this fragrance here. Which sounds like a nice powdery scent... :) And interestingly, Iris, as you know, is also a woman's name! A woman who would then be called Petrana Iris (or Iris Petrana) would have been double-bobbed and named after Iris or so :D

The fragrance:
The fragrance begins with a great fragrance cloud, in which you can immediately smell the beautiful smell of iris. Then I add pepper, which adds a light, tingling spice, and coriander, which is a bit herbaceous and tart (and where I hope, as always, that it doesn't get too strong... :D). The sweetness I sometimes notice comes from the currants, but they mix too much with the iris, which doesn't matter because it smells great. What also mixes with the iris and the whole thing is actually hardly distinguishable from each other are the violets. In general, iris and violet sometimes smell quite similar for me, as both give off a slightly sweet and powdery scent, which smells very great.
Over time, the sweetness of the fragrance increases somewhat, which could be due to the musk, among other things. Coriander continues to provide a herbaceous background and stays as it is, so it doesn't get stronger and doesn't disturb at all, because it doesn't smell like running away for a change.
Much later it still smells as usual. So sweet and above all soft and powdery. As I said, the main sweetness then comes from the musk. Of course the coriander continues to fade, I couldn't smell the vetiver at all. A beautiful fragrance!

The Sillage and the shelf life:
Hm, although the initial fragrance cloud seems overwhelming for a few seconds, the Sillage for the majority of the fragrance course is unfortunately rather moderate, so that it will probably only be best smellable from close up.
Its shelf life is also mediocre, so it smells for six or seven hours before you can hardly smell it anymore.

The bottle:
The bottle is, as for most niche fragrances, rather puristic, as it is only a rectangle with brownish fragrance liquid, even if the glass looks quite high quality. There is no label, the name of the fragrance is directly on the bottle, in the lower right corner, and if I am not mistaken, the print is even a little tactile (or?). The lid is dark grey/black and cylindrical, it looks solid and gives the otherwise simple bottle a more beautiful look. Everything's all right.

Yeah, well, I think Petrana's a nice scent. It smells of slightly spicy scents, but above all of beautiful powdery and soft scents, mainly iris and violet. And then later after musk. Even if the scent should go a little more in the direction of women's scent, I still find it somehow unisex, so that it could also be worn by the gentlemen from time to time... maybe as a cuddly scent or something? D

Anyway, the scent goes well with warm days, in winter you could only use it at home for yourself (or as I said for cuddling, kissing, cuddling... oh I think you understand the system! D) because it would fly so fast outside that you would have to spray every 10 steps to still have some of the scent...

In any case, it is a quite testable scent. The price is slightly higher, but still not exaggeratedly high as with some other fragrances, of course one gets such a fragrance with certainty but also for much cheaper. Nevertheless, it is a beautiful fragrance, has no smellable synthetic and is therefore worth a test!

That's it from me for today, see you all soon and have a nice evening :)

Barely-decent overpriced iris
A clean, synthetic, pleasant “pastel” perfume thingy played on tones of green and violet. Cassis (that omnipresent base that makes recent green-fruity-floral fragrances so similar one to another), plastic iris with no much left of its buttery rootiness, then green leaves, a subtle pollen-floral note, a salty-woody feel of vetiver, juicy pepper and not much else. So basically a trendy, restrained, glossy and unsubstantial contemporary iris scent. Inoffensive, generically pleasant, unisex, in my opinion ranking below dozens of better iris-based fragrances (without mentioning the best ones, even something like L’homme de coeur by Divine works far better). Much linear, with a powdery-soapy drydown and an annoying humid-salty-metallic aftertaste presumably due to all the synthetic stuff. Dull and overpriced, but it would make a nice gift for low-demanding friends or loved ones.

5,5-6/10
