At the moment I am testing some of the exciting Olympic O. ARTISAN fragrances - and artisan they are. Crafted, handmade - some would say "niche at its best", I mean "niche auf Teufel komm raus", whereby Ellen Covey wants and can do a lot.
The relatively untrained noses around me find all scents dreadful so far - and funny enough my daughter claims that they almost all smell the same, i.e. equally unpleasant.
Well, she's a teenager, but at least one who wanted a big bottle of Caron's "Parfum Sacré" for Christmas and even likes Aromatics Elixir.
"I have to put "Blackbird" in front of my daughter again tomorrow, because he doesn't smell unpleasant. Dr. Covey has his own handwriting, which I welcome. Sometimes it is applied bold and super-thick, in other cases sketchy and thrown down in a few strokes, the next day many lines are stacked on top of each other and interwoven, but never something is only subtly hinted at, even breathed on.
"Blackbird" is a forest painted in coarse strokes with a large tub of bath salt in the middle, a mixture of tetesept and silver fir. In the tub sits a small, chubby boy and feeds a blackbird with lots of blackberries. Verrrry berrry - blackberries, until they become grumberries, because their aroma permeates the entire forest. Very authentic, by the way, I don't know how the Dr.!!! Perfumer that worked out so well.
Everyone can come up with their own Little Red Riding Hood story about the fragrance. -
It remains present for hours.
Do I want to wear / have this?
Not my dream world.
