Sometimes even the little brother does...
The "big brother" - "Qi Intensivo" - had really impressed me during a test in a Berlin niche perfumery. It was this intense black tee note that so excited me. The proud price made me less enthusiastic...but the store allowed me to bottle a sample. But then I lost them (typically again!) and ordered a 3ml filling from a niche perfume Internet dealer. Even before she arrived, there was an offer on the Internet for a used bottle of the "little brother" "Qi". O.K., fragrances identical according to Parfumo - so slammed.

How does "Qi" smell now and how does it compare to "Qi Intensivo" (mini-filling)?
My first impression was confirmed: "Qi", like the intensive version on my skin, is first and foremost a black tea scent, accompanied by light, almost citric notes, which, however, remain very much in the background. I feel reminded of these bitter-sweet - no, actually, because of the tannins in the tea, astringent-sweet tea sweets that existed in tea shops in my youth. Not seen for a long time...were optimal (and tasty) guard holders for coffee spewers. Assam tea (or was it Ceylon tea?), sugar and lemon - these were probably the main ingredients of these sweets. "Qi" and "Qi Intensivo" have a similar effect on me. An alternative association would be a cup of strong and only slightly sweetened black tea (Assam or Ostfriesentee) with a little lemon juice, enjoyed on a flower-decorated terrace...definitely summery! Characteristically a bit like a summer version of "Russian Tea", because this pitch-black brew is a completely different caliber and definitely wintery.

As expected, I can't tell the difference to "Qi Intensivo" from the fragrance impression, except that the teen note is even more present in the latter and you don't have to spray it on as much.
So the purchase of the cheaper "little brother" was for me a good solution!
