Woodcut is a roaring fire rocket. I got the 100 ml bottle. Every single sprayer releases a lot of the substance and corrodes the respiratory tract for a short time. I was mountain biking for hours in the forest on Sunday and took four to be on the safe side. It was incredible. The heat, the forest, the dryness, Woodcut. It's a grind, in the low mountain range, on the rooted trails, uphill in the heat. Nose to sternum, inhale, smile. I am merged with the environment. The olfactory soundtrack to the journey.
I'm happy when a scent can do something. And to that, and here I like to repeat myself, a damn decent performance is a must! Four sprays is crazy, I know. But even two would have achieved what 99% of all others do not achieve with several milliliters, even though they call themselves EdP or Extrait. It was a declassification of the vast majority of fragrances I know.
The next day I applied five sprayers of a fragrance with an average shelf life of 7.4 points and could hardly perceive anything. It is a well-known fragrance with several hundred reviews. And now it comes: Of course I had to add it in the evening and thus reactivated the woodcut from the day before during sports. This then outshined the other fragrance for the next few hours. SIR AUGUST! Note that after a mountain bike tour of several hours at 25+ degrees I was sweatbathed and salt encrusted and showered three times within the next 30 hours
Norne, Jeke, Elaborate, Intricate, Complex, Provocative etc. are therefore by no means expensive. With a sprayer they do more than a few millilitres of the above mentioned with its 7.4 points. And yet: What I experienced during the two days with Woodcut has not yet happened. After 30 hours it was approx. 10 times more present than the newly applied fragrance.
A weapon, which I wanted to address here the practical feasibility in terms of price/performance and performance regardless of taste and finally asked myself what some highly praised brands fill their 100 ml canisters for concentrations. And why do others reward their clientele with really highly concentrated gems that stand out from the mainstream in terms of quality in these categories alone.
That's the way it has to be. This is high-end. 30 to 50 ml WROOOOMMMMMM! And not 100 to 250 ml FFFFFFHHHHHHHHHH!
