Naturally natural!
The peridot gemstone, or chrysolite as it is also called, is a particularly pure form of olivite and has a light green to yellow color. So also the fine fragrant water of Olivier Durbano from Grasse.

Its products are meticulously handmade and bottled by the master himself in the world capital of fragrances. Each perfume contains three stone spheres of the mineral around which the theme of the fragrance revolves.

The prelude starts with a well-balanced mixture of spices, I mainly perceive fresh ginger and pepper, but this without becoming scratchy as it can often be the case with such concoctions. After a while, light notes of caraway and rosemary are perfectly rounded off by those of jasmine. I associate Hisop with purity for whatever reason, and that also comes to bear here, I find the fragrance simply smells "clean".

The heart of this perfume is characterized by a salty note mixed with jasmine. Vervain gives the whole thing fresh undertones and therefore, in my opinion, this fragrance is best suited for midsummer and autumn. Sometimes a distant relation to the "Parco Palladiano V: Lauro" comes through for me, whereby I feel this here as more perfect and around some high-quality.

I would describe the perfume as fresh and spicy with sweet undertones. This light sweetness is probably due to the vetiver and musk in the base. At this point, I don't really like vetiver. But here it is so discreet that it supports the overall picture and not so sticky-sweet around the corner, which is often the problem with vetiver fragrances for me. The cedar and ambergris give the whole thing a woody and warm note.

I would settle the durability at 5-6 hours, moreover it stays rather close to the skin. The slope is relatively discreet when compared with e.g. Labradorite #13.

I have found this comment relatively difficult as it is a complex mixture of many natural essences that are not necessarily easy to describe. A fragrance is definitely present, for my nose it goes from herbaceous-fresh to warm-woody, but of course this is only a subjective impression on my part.

If you like natural scents and herbs, this is a definite test recommendation. Unfortunately there is no distribution for these fragrant waters from Durbano in Germany yet, which will hopefully change in the future....
