Perfect unobtrusive harmony - skin scent with recognition value
After I received the scent from the sharing, I first sprayed it timidly on my wrist and was not immediately convinced, because I could not classify the scent so selectively sprayed on. My impression is that you really have to wear the scent to judge it. So today I sprayed Privé generously before going downtown (last Christmas shopping). The individual components are difficult for me to sniff out and I don't want to fall into the trap of copying the fragrance pyramids, which has been so rightly reprimanded so many times. For me, Privé is a perfectly harmonious composition of soft, unsweet and unobtrusive flowers, somewhat citric at first, but neither bitter and sour, nor fruity and sweet, but simply light, unobtrusive and floating. These two elements, floweriness and citric, are connected by a hitherto unknown component in fragrances: I think it is the scent of basmati rice. I would not have come across this note openly without the information in the pyramid. But nevertheless, once pointed out, one can smell this note and understand it. It is an extremely mild fragrance without being sweet, powdery, creamy or even gourmandig. It makes the fragrance special, harmonious, gives substance and creates a wonderful connection between the fragrance notes and the skin of the wearer (I perceive Privé as a clearly feminine fragrance). That's why I called Privé skin scent in the title. But this has nothing to do with animal skin scents, the scent remains light and fresh until the drydown. A fragrance which underlines the personality of the wearer and which I believe can be worn anywhere and at any time: Privé has what it takes to become a signature fragrance. Sillage and shelf life are in the middle range. I am extremely impressed by this completely new and wonderful fragrance experience and would like to thank the organizer of the Sharing!
