A familiar surprise
A sample of this was given to me by a generous swap partner. I did a test spray in the sink, thought: Hm! Floral! - and left the room.

When I came back some time later, the scent had developed, it was darker, spicier, heavier, and I thought: Hey, I know this perfume! I know it very well, but oh, what is it... I couldn't remember.

The answer came to me the same evening, when I was sorting out some samples I had made from bottles I recently sold, to keep as a memory. And there it was. Loewe Gala. That's what Secret Joly reminded me of, very strongly. When I look at the notes for the two perfumes, they are not strikingly similar, but I find that the scent is. If Gala had not been discontinued, but was still sold in a slightly modernized and reformulated version, I believe this would be it. A heavy blend of jasmine, ylang, civet, benzoin and some other sweet, dark and dirty ingredients. Smooth, velvety feel.

In my review of it, I described Gala as a forgotten treasure, something I once loved but saved for too long and now it sadly doesn't suit me anymore. I will probably not start wearing Secret Joly either, but it was surprising to see how two unrelated perfumes can be so similar. It made me curious about the brand in general, and I might try to find other samples.

I like the opening: retro heavy florals with a civet kick, but as soon as it settles down I get a rubbery note that annoys me. Pity.
